Do cops have anything to fear?

Did I read and hear correctly?—the Attorney General, Anand Ramlogan, saying, in relation to the leaking of the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) report, the PCA “must be careful that it does not do more harm than good by appearing to be over-zealous in its investigations against police officers. It must strike the right balance in the public interest so that police officers will not become too fearful about performing their duties”.

Is this the same Attorney General who said citizens have nothing to fear once they are law-abiding—and have nothing to hide—during the limited state of emergency and also the anti-gang legislation debate?

What is the Attorney General now talking about? Police officers becoming too fearful? What nonsense.

If these officers carry out their duties in a lawful and professional manner, they have nothing to fear—or is it that ting hiding in the roof or home or bedroom of these officers? Different strokes, you say?

All of us are equal before the law, but some of us a more equal than others?
