Na sinih nih ngesala atau nekap sala iamo perlu teu terima kenyataan bahawa we have reached this grave situation because of:

1. Our own inactions (we, the authority and those who enforce the law),
2. The “thinking” behind Lawas adminstrative arrangement. 
3. Lack of border control to prevent influx of syabu, and all crime elements,
4. Failure and incapability of our own leaders at the grass-root level (Ketua kampung, penghulu to monitor and enforce law and order)
5. Inactive, or almost non existence of NGOs and right activist groups in Lawas such as RELA, Homewatch, etc. 
6. No concerted effort by the authority and the community (incl. community leaders) to prevent crime at their own level of control, and the most significant cause of all,
6. Indifference attitude towards crime and crime prevention.
