Its Time Modern Day Joe McCarthy (Terrence Williams) Be Shown The Door..

Last year alone Jamaican Police report­ed that they inves­ti­gat­ed the death of 1616 of their fel­low coun­try­men and women. This num­ber rep­re­sent­ed an increase of about 20% in the homi­cide num­bers report­ed to them the pre­vi­ous year.
The astro­nom­i­cal num­ber of deaths which are large­ly firearm relat­ed tells only a frac­tion of the car­nage hap­pen­ing as it relates to crime and vio­lence, as the num­ber of those shot and injured are expo­nen­tial­ly high­er than those killed.

As the Government strug­gles to appear to be doing some­thing through a series of hap­haz­ard mea­sures, aver­age law-abid­ing Jamaicans are at their wit’s end and are demand­ing dras­tic reme­di­al actions.
None of the actions, (ie) ZOSO zones of spe­cial oper­a­tions law, the state of emer­gency in the parish of Saint James or any oth­er stop-gap mea­sure has had any mean­ing­ful impact on crime reduc­tion.

The intractable crime con­di­tions plagu­ing the Island had it’s Genesis in the 60’s and was nur­tured and enhanced by the two polit­i­cal par­ties since then.
We have got­ten to the point now where vio­lent crime is lit­er­al­ly chok­ing the lifeblood out of the coun­try con­trary to what the polit­i­cal lead­ers tell you, and they refuse to take the steps to stop it.
It is remark­able that in a tiny coun­try of 2.8 mil­lion peo­ple over 1600 could be mur­dered in a sin­gle year with­out a real sense of urgency any­where.

With that said, there are struc­tur­al carve-outs which if insti­tut­ed could have a sig­nif­i­cant pos­i­tive effect yet polit­i­cal con­sid­er­a­tions have ham­pered the imple­men­ta­tion of com­mon­sense approach­es.
Some of those com­mon sense approach­es include but are not con­fined to pass­ing laws which puts dan­ger­ous crim­i­nals in prison and keep them there.
Making the com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing the sup­port (leg­isla­tive­ly and oth­er­wise), equip­ment, and remu­ner­a­tions and of course prop­er train­ing which are nec­es­sary for the police to do their jobs effec­tive­ly.
The Government can­not con­tin­ue to refuse to sup­port the efforts of law enforce­ment while pre­tend­ing to do just that pub­licly.
Governmental sup­port for the police can­not be only to their para­chut­ed friends that they place above the men and women of the depart­ment.

Terrence Williams
Commissioner of INDECOM

More than any­thing else the Government can repeal the INDECOM Act! It must be clear to all except the will­ful­ly blind, that Terrence Williams is not an inde­pen­dent Investigator but a cheap media whore of a rab­ble-rouser.
Commissioner Terrence Williams please see Independent Investigator(Robert Muller).

The over­worked under­paid, under-equipped poor­ly sup­port­ed police have been doing their best to deal with the oner­ous crime mon­ster which is stran­gling the coun­try with not much sup­port for their efforts.
Even as they do so Terrence Williams and Hamish Campbell sits on the side­lines and active­ly take actions to divert the atten­tion of the coun­try from the task at hand with a view to slime the police.

In address­ing media enti­ties the anti-police, for­eign-fund­ed gov­ern­ment agency chose to slime the police through its com­mis­sion­er and inter­lop­ing assis­tant com­mis­sion­er Hamish Campbell.
Hamish Campbell out­lined that 168 of the 264 shoot­ing inci­dents report­ed against the secu­ri­ty forces last year involved per­sons who were fatal­ly shot. This, he said, rep­re­sent­ed an increase from 2016 when 111 of the 180 gun-relat­ed reports were for fatal shoot­ings. In 2015, there were 169 shoot­ing inci­dents.

One mea­sure of assess­ing police use of force and whether it may or may not be exces­sive is a dis­tinc­tion between those who are shot and injured and those who are killed,” Campbell said. “In Jamaica’s secu­ri­ty forces, there are always sig­nif­i­cant­ly more peo­ple shot and killed than there are shot and injured; and it is for the JCF to reflect on those pat­terns.

The job of INDECOM was sold to the nation as that of an inde­pen­dent agency which would “inde­pen­dent­ly” inves­ti­gate all inci­dents of police shoot­ings as well as all alle­ga­tions of abuse by the police, Military, and cor­rec­tions depart­ments.
Since the JCF is the Agency in the pub­lic’s eye and is the very first agency tasked with deal­ing with those opposed to the rule of law it fol­lows that the over­whelm­ing bulk of the com­plaints would be against the Police.

Nevertheless, from its Genesis, the Commissioner of INDECOM has shown him­self to be an atten­tion seek­ing media whore who seems to go into with­draw­al as a crack or opi­um addict does when he does not see his name in the news.
Terrence Williams’ job is to find bad shoot­ings and rec­om­mend charges. If his Agency can­not find any­thing wrong with the shoot­ings, (shoot­ings in which I might add police offi­cers are shot and killed and injured) , why is Terrence Williams and Hamish Campbell allowed to slime the police with dis­tort­ed data?

I once again call for the repeal of the INDECOM Act, we sim­ply can­not have an agency par­tial­ly fund­ed by tax­pay­ers mon­ey which is active­ly bent on sub­vert­ing the role of the police, and enhanc­ing anar­chy in our coun­try.
INDECOM is an ene­my of the peo­ple and by exten­sion an ene­my of our coun­try.
I call on the Jamaican peo­ple who care about crime, its time to demand an end to this farce. Demand a full repeal of the INDECOM act and the resources ded­i­cat­ed to train­ing equip­ping and sup­port­ing the police in their fight for the soul of our coun­try.

It’s time that this despi­ca­ble mod­ern-day Joe McCarthy be shown the door
