Anthony Harriot Comments About JCF A Cowardly Hatchet Job By A Deceitful Hack…

Like a snow­ball cas­cad­ing down a moun­tain­side, increas­ing in mass with each rev­o­lu­tion it tum­bles on until it trig­gers a humon­gous avalanche dev­as­tat­ing and con­sum­ing every­thing in its wake. So has the assault on the JCF con­tin­ued over sev­er­al decades until it is now on life sup­port.
But that’s what the polit­i­cal class want­ed all along.The trag­ic irony now, how­ev­er, is that they are shit­ting them­selves because they are com­ing to the real­iza­tion that the shit is about to hit their doorsteps and they are pan­ick­ing, so nat­u­ral­ly, they berate the police some more.

How iron­ic that the rul­ing class most of whom have passed through the left­ist University of the West Indies (UWI), or more appro­pri­ate­ly, the intel­lec­tu­al ghet­to, accord­ing to the late Wilmott Perkins, have destroyed the Police force only to have one of their own head of the Police Civilian Oversight Authority, some Professor Anthony Harriot describe the Department as “Toxic”.
I’ll tell you what’s tox­ic. It is that shit­hole of a left­ist University which indoc­tri­nates idiots like this into think­ing they are [the] author­i­ty on National Security and crime.

The Police depart­ment cer­tain­ly could have done a bet­ter job of com­port­ing itself over the decades, there is no doubt about that. We all know that the salary is no good the man­age­ment is shit­ty and the lack of real and real­is­tic goal set­ting and attain­ment in its oper­a­tional pro­ce­dures have been woe­ful­ly lack­ing.
As such despite the tire­less work of most of the young men and women who self­less­ly join the depart­ment, the police depart­ment has been unable to seri­ous­ly impact crime in a mean­ing­ful way as a com­pa­ny would be able to show a prof­it as a result of a tar­get­ed growth agen­da.

This is a result of the failed lead­er­ship of the depart­ment by those who have been ele­vat­ed for the wrong rea­sons forc­ing out oth­ers more moti­vat­ed and bet­ter suit­ed to serve. This is cer­tain­ly not unique to the JCF it cuts across all stra­ta of the pub­lic sec­tor.
The Jamaican pub­lic sec­tor is inher­ent­ly cor­rupt and flawed.
The almost 600 mem­bers who leave the depart­ment each year, not through retire­ment is tes­ta­ment to the fact that they are unhap­py with their lead­er­ship.

Notwithstanding the fore­gone, the two polit­i­cal par­ties which have ruined (ruled)the Island since it’s so-called inde­pen­dence from Britain have done a bril­liant job of divid­ing the coun­try into two war­ring fac­tions.
Additionally, they have set up the Police to stand between both fac­tions in an unen­vi­able and unwinnable task of ref­er­ee­ing which could only end in dis­as­ter on the field of play.
For any­one to talk about Toxicity with­in the JCF with­out first detail­ing who did the poi­son­ing or to lie about how the poi­son was ingest­ed is vast­ly dis­hon­est, and at the very min­i­mum is intel­lec­tu­al dis­hon­esty.

To hear that kind of lan­guage from some­one who heads a body which has Police Civilian Oversight respon­si­bil­i­ty is shock­ing­ly illu­mi­nat­ing at the lev­el of unmit­i­gat­ed bias the police face form these Machiavellian frauds.
In mak­ing the argu­ments that the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency (MOCA) should be sep­a­rat­ed from the JCF Harriot said quote:

(“The occu­pa­tion­al cul­ture of the JCF is one where you take the car and you go off and drink rum and do no inves­ti­ga­tion. You are not called to account, and when the mur­der rate goes through the roof, you squeal that you don’t have enough of this or that.
It is crit­i­cal that it is removed. The JCF is tox­ic. And there is no point in spend­ing a lot of mon­ey, giv­ing peo­ple high-lev­el train­ing for them to become part of the JCF’s occu­pa­tion­al cul­ture.”)

A shock­ing and igno­rant broad-brush stroke of tar­ring which makes no dis­tinc­tion for any of the chal­lenges the depart­ment faces logis­ti­cal­ly, oper­a­tional­ly. tech­ni­cal­ly, mon­e­tar­i­ly, polit­i­cal­ly, leg­isla­tive­ly, or oth­er­wise.
Yet he went on to say the fol­low­ing.

(“That is the root of the prob­lem, and that is why this inves­tiga­tive police (unit), the core of which is in MOCA, must be tak­en off the JCF — split from the JCF imme­di­ate­ly. There has real­ly been an effort to have MOCA oper­ate sep­a­rate­ly, and it must be encour­aged.”
With 1,616 per­sons killed across the island last year and more than 100 already killed in 2018, the Government must move quick­ly.”)

Well, there you have it.
Despite the fail­ings of the two polit­i­cal par­ties, the prob­lems fac­ing the coun­try accord­ing to some­one who occu­pies a posi­tion which is sup­posed to be patent­ly objec­tive and fair the prob­lems are all root­ed in the police.

This is the most igno­rant, deceit­ful, piece of garbage I have ever read. Imagine though that this moron heads the Police Civilian Oversight.
What chance does the Island’s police offi­cers have when these are the insects which have a say over them?
Is there any won­der that many of our police offi­cers have sim­ply dropped their hands?

With Transparency International assess­ing that the Government struc­ture is 84 % cor­rupt the immoral, elit­ists have decid­ed to lay it all at the feet of the Constabulary.
So I will sim­ply ask this of you, Professor. What have you done for Jamaica com­pa­ra­ble to the sac­ri­fices of the last joined con­sta­ble who risk life and limb every day, so that imbe­ciles like you can spout off at the mouth the garbage and bile you spew?

The fact that Harriot would car­ry out a hatch­et job on the over ten thou­sand men and women of the JCF with­out first at least acknowl­edge the fail­ings of the polit­i­cal sys­tems or the Judicial sys­tem demon­strates that he is a cheap hack car­ry­ing out the bid­ding of the polit­i­cal class to fur­ther blame the police for the dan­ger­ous mur­der sta­tis­tics.
The com­ments in and of them­selves are designed to fur­ther erode what­ev­er good­will the cit­i­zen­ry may have toward the police mak­ing the police fur­ther irrel­e­vant and endan­gers the lives of offi­cers in the process.
Citizens who see the police as lack­ing in author­i­ty, cred­i­bil­i­ty, sup­port are inclined to resist and attack those offi­cers. No won­der attacks on our police offi­cers have gone up as the Andrew Holness Government and their cohorts step up their attack on our police in an effort to deliv­er a coup de grâce to it as an agency..
A dis­gust­ing, class­less, cow­ard­ly yet trans­par­ent act?

Like and share if you sup­port the good hard­work­ing men and women of the JCF

One thought on “Anthony Harriot Comments About JCF A Cowardly Hatchet Job By A Deceitful Hack…

  1. I“Internationally known Criminologist” — Criminology is an area of Sociology that focus­es on the study of crimes and their caus­es, effects, and social impact. A crim­i­nol­o­gist’s job respon­si­bil­i­ties involve ana­lyz­ing data to deter­mine why the crime was com­mit­ted and to find ways to pre­dict, deter, and pre­vent fur­ther crim­i­nal behav­iour.

    So if this man is what the paper says he is and i have stat­ed clear­ly & con­cise­ly what he does then he being head of the Police Civillian Oversight Authority then it is fair to say then that has­n’t done his civic duty.

    The so called “Toxic cul­ture” does­n’t exist only in the Jamaica Constabulary Force but much of our cit­i­zen­ry as well as the the bedrock,pillars and cor­ner stone of cor­rup­tion.….…. Politicians.

    I will nev­er argue that there isn’t cor­rupt police officers,the do exist and they must be iden­ti­fied, alle­ga­tions proven and then they are either sent to prison or dis­missed.

    A soci­ety can nev­er be seen as tak­ing crime and cor­rup­tion seri­ous­ly when peo­ple point fin­gers at one orga­ni­za­tion and turn a blind eye to oth­er things.…corruption comes in many forms but again they refuse to accept that fact.

    The peo­ple of this coun­try should also demand that the Minister of National Security also be sent pack­ing. We won’t hold our breaths though because crony­ism and nepo­tism will be the order of the day. This Professor won’t talk about that because it is eas­i­er for him to blame oth­ers and not his friends.

    Sir there are near­ly (3) mil­lion peo­ple liv­ing on this rock with give or take about twelve thou­sand 12,000 police officers,do you real­ly believe that they can be every where at the same time! So even if one idler decides to go against force pol­i­cy and stop for a drink how is he to blame for a mur­der com­mit­ted 80 miles away.

    It seems to me that your anti police stance /​rhetoric is seep­ing through your pores and your think it is civility,it is your fail­ure to real­ize that you are also a part of the prob­lem con­ve­nient­ly for­get­ting facts.

    I hate criminals,I hate cor­rupt politicians,I hate cor­rupt cops. I also hate those that poss­es the know how to help to make this bet­ter but choose to find a media house to high­light issues that was always com­mon place and in my view point­ing fin­gers

    We have a prob­lem sir and we need to rid the coun­try of this scourge,the police aren’t the one killing all these peo­ple. Encourage your fam­i­ly and friends to tell what they know. Encourage your friends to speak with their con­stituents to give infor­ma­tion on who the crim­i­nals are.

    The police need the resources to fight this mon­ster. Police offi­cers fight each day to uphold the image and poli­cies of the JCF. Most are hon­est peo­ple who sac­ri­fice their time,family and them­selves to fight crime and to pre­vent it…they need all the help they can get.
