This shows again that the police know quite well what's going on 'out there in the jungle'.

Best outcome is the killers will be identified and maybe even go to jail (if the police are not directly involved).

Just a shame that even if they know who is the 'mastermind' he/she wont be prosecuted because of all the known reasons.
