As a Antiguan citizen and one who, ‘ nable string berries here’, I am very concern about the actions the police service has taken at this time against the government and the people of Antigua and Barbuda.
This really does surprise me because this is very consistent with the police service behaviour.
It is clear that they don’t care one bit about the people of Antigua and Barbuda. The world health organization has declared coronavirus as a world pandemic disease and has indicated its potential to damage the world economy and certainly have been doing just that and these police officers who get a salary every month while so many are not getting, have the heart to make all these demands on the government and care nothing about the suffering citizens who are home for months not working and need help from the government.
The police are saying to hell with them just give us what we want. If this is not wickedness nothing else is.
This is police service that is so corrupt with officers charge with passport fraud and even recently murder, they have not see it fit to build the moral of the service before make demands.
Today I happen to pass by the police grounds and inside full with cars and people gather up together over 100 persons and them is the same one who locking up persons for social distancing and huge gatherings.
I am ask the people of antigua not to forget this one in this crucial time with so much going over 100 police officers in police grounds refuse to work and holding the government hostage to settle they demands. The police officer who instigates this should be shame.
I applaud the government for doing so much in this difficult times and am asking antiguans to stand with your government and lets ride out of this one together they serious enemies out there who want see the country fall under this one but not realizing that if our government fall it affects us all .
