“The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl.”

— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The disservice of some Jamaican Police Officers

Uncouth behaviour, intimidatory and unprofessional outburst, assaults and injury and blatant disregard and respect for onlooking children. It is occurrences like these that drives a greater wedge in the divide between police and civilians. Young children looking on reaffirm that this rift will go on to the next generation. This morning i awoke to the screeching of police vehicles on a rampage in my community. As always i anticipated the usual callous, unprofessional and downright de-civilised attitude of the members of the Jamaican constabulary Force was evident, i was not disappointed. I am enraged at the thought that police officers constantly and unabashly abuse and violate the civil rights of Jamaican citizens. My physician friend hinted that they are ban of somatic narcissists. What do Politicians and Police have in common? They all take poor Jamaicans for fools. They know that the average Jamaican despises yet fear the Police because he is the law and therefore licence to kill. Few if any cases of questionable Police shootings or brutalities, use of excessive force etc, cases have ever been ruled in the favour of the victim. It appears the Jamaican legislative and Judiciary system is to defend their institutions and not the people. It is a pervasive nationwide concept that the police can hurt you or destroy your property and nothing comes of it. The legal system is fashioned to protect its besmirched purveyors. How can you search someones home without a warrant or their consent? There are extenuating circumstances that does not deem a warrant necessary but most police officers in making an arrest disregard this first foremost right of a civilian. Other common violation include seizing personal property and taking money away from individuals suspected of gleaning assets from criminal or fraudulent activity. A friend of mine was recently stopped by a police who took seventy thousand dollars from him. My friend hung his head in despair and i told him to get a lawyer and have the police officer give you back your money. I understand that the police officers have a very difficult job especially with the crime climate in Jamaica and seeing death and destruction everyday might make one fidgety and edgy. However i will contend that training less than a year to become a police officer is not adequate time to assess whether or not an individual is suitable to defend the public and uphold the nations law. Too many questionable, unfit and ignominious characters hide behind a badge and a shield. Uncouth behaviour, intimidatory and unprofessional outburst, assaults and injury and blatant disregard and respect for onlooking children. It is occurrences like these that drives a greater wedge in the divide between police and civilians. Young children looking on reaffirm that this rift will go on to the next generation. Police officers will insult relatives of detainees, denying them information, a duty counsellor or access to their family members during arrests. They are discourteous and obnoxious.
