  1. That ah all this useless COP good for tek pitcure crime rate up officers are tired and burned out and one would think he would be in endless stragic meetings in how to tackle the recent rise in crime. One would think he would be motivating the officers passing on his knowledge of crime fighting to them teaching them how to prepare cases for court for all of his training he get. But no he out ah hike and ah tek picture this man is the worst COP in the history of Antigua. From since he became top COP the police force go from bad to worst scandal after scandal more case thrown out of course because police are not prepared and the list goes on. This guy should have been fired a long time ago. Bring back Vere Brown bring back the Canadian mountees hell bring back Wendel Robinson cause all of them did a better job than this man.

  2. Not to mention the rise in accidents. They are giving $200 tickets for stupid reasons such as parking at the airport to let out someone for 30 secs while in the vehicle; yet motorists are not tickets for speeding and reckless driving because these overweight officers sit on their laurels and fail to patrol the streets randomly to check for speeding; yet they harass individuals who don’t speed or obstruct traffic inna this hard guava grop time.
