Title: TTPS a law unto themselves
Comments: What government minister Clarence Rambharat failed to say when he talked about TTPS and the crime scenario here is that crime here has become a money spinner. It is the very reason why no constructive or remedial action is being taken to stem the flow of everyday murders and general lawlessness here,either by the police or the politicians whose hands are tied to some degree. The present and previous politicians are to be blamed for handing over full control of our crime scenario to TTPS. Yes the politicians hands are now tied because over the years they have gradually released their control and responsibility of the police system here,thus allowing the police to become a law unto themselves. Just look at the results after many decades of having a police force manned by local citizens who have lost the respect of the ordinary citizens because allegations of dabbling in corruption, without seemingly any official hindrance. After all if the ordinary citizens were and are still aware of what goes on within TTPS then the politicians too must be also aware of these wrong doings. One hasn't got to look too far within this set up to find senior officials of this department violating the legal system. We have at present at least three senior official within TTPS due to appear in court for alleged breaking the law however, these individuals are still operating as usual when in fact they should have been being suspended from duty What sort of example is this?. What about all these probes and investigations that the police were supposed to have started what happened to most of them such as the investigation into the affairs of Jack Warner?. What about the cost for renovating the Red House. What did it cost and whose bank account benefited from this project?. I am not a policeman but in my eyes there must be a hell of a lot of crime committed here by other government officials that need probing. However, the police continue to turn a blind eye to the illegal activities of the Mr Bigs and are quite prepared to pursue the lesser mortals for petty crimes they may have committed to reflect that they to some extent are protectors of our citizens. The whole of TTPS needs urgent reform and we need a outside commissioner of police and urgent outside help.Our politicians must again take control back from TTPS by introducing the correct and necessary are legislation to combat the battle against all serious crimes which now being used as a money spinner.
