It's pushing thermometers up to 117 degrees Fahrenheit.
And this is in a country where about a third of the population doesn't have access to electricity.

More than 1,100 people have died in this week-long heat wave.
They include India's power, its homeless, and some construction workers who labor in direct sunlight.
The monsoon rains are coming.
They should bring some relief.

Why do you think there's an increase in the murder rate and numbers of shootings in the town?
Officers stopped being proactive.
Not patrolling, just stop be1分快3ing proactive.
Not talking to the community?
Not talking-stop being proactiv1分快3e.
I believe it's a direct result from officers holding back.
