Marty Offline
Prior to the Christmas break, Mayor of San Pedro Town, Mr. Daniel Guerrero had a luncheon with members of the San Pedro Police Department to discuss current issues that dealt with alleged police brutality and abuse of power. Residents have been complaining about the behavior and attitude of some police officers to the point of losing trust in the department. Mayor Daniel keeps a close relationship with the Police and after taking a closer look at the rising issues he sat down with them to further reassure that the department is looking onto the current incidents that have occurred. Officer in Charge of the SP Police Department Vienie Robinson commented that she is convinced that the department is doing the best it can with the resourced it has to combat crime on the island. She stated that the recent case of alleged police brutality is one isolated case that is being investigated.

Well that is all well and Dandy but when people have lost confidence in the Police and Police officers are putting their guns in citizens mouths maybe the Officer in Charge might understand why people are reluctant to report these incidents when they fear for their safety and retribution from the crooked cops.

A perfect example is the latest incident where as soon as the cops knew the citizens were reporting the incident they were quickly charged with trumped up charges to try to cover their behaviour.

Now I agree that people should report these incidents but I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND those that are not brave enough to do so.

We have a private group where people say exactly that please do not quote me please do not mention my name etc etc and until people decide to stand up and fight the Police department is right its just rumor

Well then... With that attitude, seems like a no-win/dead end situation to me.
