    A darn shame. Those responsible for upholding the laws are being accused of breaking the law in such a significant way.

    The streets have been talking about bad cops for some time now. Looks like the streets were right.

    It’s time to clean house and round up all the bad cops who are given the other cops a bad name. This kind of alleged behavior cannot be tolerated.

    The rest of us are expected to abide by the laws; cops who disgrace the badge they wear should be no exception and must be held to a higher standard simply because they know better.

    What other shoes are there to drop?

    This was bound to happen eventually. A high percentage of police officers only set foot in the BVI when they came to work in the BVI. Some of those guys may have only become officers in the BVI to get access and knowledge of police whereabouts to further aid in their criminal intentions. They see it as easy money.

    The drug world is the huge and quick money world. And, wherever there is money of any amount, the human mind will be there seeking to satisfy its lust for it.

    On two separate occasions had the opportunity to observe and evaluate so called raid in the Ghetto.

    It was so evident that the purpose was not about law enforcement, but using the guise of law enforcement , the weapons’ and uniform to search for and confiscate materials for purposes other than law enforcement. The body language was speaking volumes..
