Please Leave The Police Alone To Argue For Better Pay Already.…

Much has been said about the Industrial action being under­tak­en by the Police. Depending on who you speak to, the response is going to be bel­li­cose one way or the oth­er.
Let us stop for a while and ask our­selves what are the police offi­cers sup­posed to do since they are not allowed to strike?
For the sanc­ti­mo­nious hyp­ocrites in the Media who write columns and those who opine on edi­to­r­i­al pages, I ask you when have you ever sup­port­ed the work of the police except to crit­i­cize?
Stick to what you do best, which is to talk and keep your snouts out of oth­er peo­ple’s lives.
If the cops ask for a raise for risk­ing their lives you hyp­ocrites chat, if they betray their oaths and take bribes you hyp­ocrites chat.

To the rank and file offi­cers who con­tin­ue to work to cur­ry favor with the gazetted ranks you are noth­ing more than scabs.
When you cross pick­et lines which are designed for your ben­e­fit you are the most despi­ca­ble of despi­ca­ble.
And as for those senior ranks who tell the men and women under their com­mand that mon­ey is not all, SSP Carl Ferguson my for­mer squad­mate )please remem­ber that your salary is com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent than the peo­ple you lec­ture about the right­eous­ness of ser­vice.

There are a pletho­ra of dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives which baf­fles me about the police’s action.
They should­n’t take action.
They refused more mon­ey under the pre­vi­ous admin­is­tra­tion.
They are PNP.
Crime is high so they do not deserve any pay increase.
They were forced to accept a pay freeze under the pre­vi­ous gov­ern­ment.

The com­ments are as ridicu­lous as they are asi­nine and insid­i­ous.
The police have every right to take what­ev­er action they deem nec­es­sary in their best inter­est.
There is the[mout a massi] who have an opin­ion on every­thing police, they are nev­er with­out an opin­ion which they prof­fer as truth when it’s all con­vo­lut­ed opin­ions, sim­ply because they have the medi­ums through which to chat.
There are those in the crim­i­nal rights fra­ter­ni­ty who have done immense dam­age through their advo­ca­cy which has geld­ed police, caused many to drop their hands and oth­ers to look the oth­er way.
Members of the JCF should be wary of them and their state­ments which are designed clear­ly to cur­ry favor with the police.

I have nev­er heard any police offi­cer get­ting involved in salary nego­ti­a­tions of any oth­er group or enti­ty.
In the event that work­ers have struck for what­ev­er rea­son and they decide to demon­strate their dis­plea­sure, cops are there march­ing side by side to ensure that their rights are guar­an­teed.

What I’m say­ing is give the offi­cers a chance to make their demands and please stop with the damn PNP/​JLP shit.
