The Guyana Police Force: two commentaries

The uniformed Bad Boys of the Guyana Police Force and their overridden Commissioner –  commentary

Written by realTalk  – Demerara Waves – Tuesday, 25 September 2012

Since 1992, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) has consistently failed in its mandate to protect and serve the people of Guyana. Instead, it has become a most corrupt and brutal force, in the defense of notorious drug lords, lawless and incompetent politicians, and the friends of the friends who enjoy close affiliation with the ruling party. Guyanese continue to be intimidated and terrorized by the bands of uniformed bad boys belonging to the GPF.

That the tragedy of Linden occurred with the police at the center of it ought not to surprise Guyanese. Extrajudicial killings from post 1992 became the hallmark of the GPF.  Read more:   [The uniformed Bad Boys of the Guyana Police Force]

The Undermining of the Police Chief by the PPPC government has caused untold suffering for Guyanese

The questioning of Acting Police Chief Leroy Brummel revealed what some knew and many had suspected for years. That the Police Chief was largely a nominal figure. A place holder position designed by Rohee and the PPPC government and that the Police Department has been deliberately under-resourced, under-manned, under-paid and under-trained by the PPPC government. What was also made clear is how the Police Chief was systematically undermined and his authority usurped to ensure that he would only as powerful as Rohee and the PPPC government wanted him to be.    Read More  [The Undermining of the Police Chief]

    There seems to be no other reports reports claiming what these reports claims the Commissioner said. It is a remarkable piece of speculation and suspicion. Hopefully, we will get the facts if possible that led to three people losing their lives senselessly. The media would serve Guyana best if it sticks to facts not fantasy. Something is not right here, and we need to know the truth or we will continue a race to the bottom not top. We need patriots not partasans.

    The article from Dem Waves is nonsense. They are like the Kaieteur and Stabroek news with their lies. The Media will better serve this country if they print the truth at all times like it is. The truth will come out eventually by this same COL who is doing the investigaton into the 3 Lindeners death which should never have been. There is only one journalist at Kaieteur news and that is PEEPING TOM WHO EVER HE/SHE IS. It is only his/her articles I read as he writes facts not FANTASY and his/her facts are most times correct. He/her is not a biased reporter. The rest of the newspaper I dump in my garbage i.e whenever I purchase same. I only support a party which brought the people of Guyana out of Bondage prior to 1992. Now, it is safe to say that we are middle class peoples and at this time we are proud to be Guyanese. God is in charge of Guyana not a cesspool of journalists.
