What’s Trending:  Cops face court

Wed, December 12, 2012 - 9:41 AM

The Nation’s Associate Editor takes a look at what’s trending today in Barbados.

Today’s Midweek Nation front page story about the two constables facing sexual assault charges has our online readers talking. Here are some of their comments.

J.C.P: The police force has to raise its standards again.

John Da Silva: After the fiasco in the current rape trial where the victims are testifying for the accused, the whole world is going to watching how this unfolds.

Kell Jo: Someone forgot the motto: To serve and protect.

Titus Thomas: People, don't be so quick to judge, the guys are accused, only accused. Let justice take its course.

Shawn Legend Austin: I say guilty as charged. To be accused of such a heinous offence you had to be doing something. A lot of these nit wits have no sort of respect for the people they swore to protect. They are so blinded by their  arrogance they think they're above the law. If these two have any kind of decency left they should jump off a cliff and spare the good people of Barbados the embarrassment.

Margaret P Brathwaite Walkes: There is always a time when dark comes to light, but our force is not a bad one.  Like any other organization there are bad apples among us.

Sharon Woolley: But if this is a set up Barbados will be shamed worldwide and tourism will suffer even more.  According to other media it's theft along with assaulting  women, either way it will bring more shame on a beautiful island and its people.

Set up or not when you are going to do wrong things dont leave no evidence .It is time that the RBPF get a moral cleansing .It is often said that may of the officers take the To serve part of the motto into the wrong context .It is shameful one way or another how ever we look at it . Were they set up to crash into the peoples gate too as "alleged" in the report?.Our people need to be more responsible and think about their actions and all who they will affect.When we say one Police all gets labelled .

1.I wonder if these ladies would have spoken out, had the landlord's gate not been damaged.
2. I wonder what will happen to Tourism when, internationally, it becomes apparent that the last bastion of security on this island is plagued by rogue cops, more dangerous than the common criminals.
