Jack Warner has gone too far
I have had more than enough of Jack Warner's rantings and ravings about Police Commissioner Dwayne Gibbs and his 21st Century Policing Initiative.
It should be clear to all that Mr Warner's strategy seems to be to intimidate the commissioner, perhaps as a way to thwart any further investigation into his (Warner's) role in the FIFA payoff accusations in Port of Spain.
I have found Mr Warner's most recent tirade against Gibbs to be nauseating and disgusting, to say the least.
Imagine this man stands before a group of soldiers at Teteron Barracks and announces that he had sent a letter to Gibbs instructing as follows: "Please open my (Warner's) police stations" and going so far as to tell Gibbs: "Who don't hear will feel."
What was he saying to the Commissioner?
How much more of this should we have to take before the Prime Minister acknowledges that she has made a mistake with this man and that she should save the nation from him before he does further damage?
Further, Mr Warner takes a line from Police Service Commission Ramesh Deosaran's book and accuses Gibbs of disrespecting him. I can only surmise that Mr Warner felt he had to be told of the redeployment of the deputy commissioners of police. He seems not to want to understand that the Police Commissioner is the one charged with the management of the police service.
A legal opinion given earlier stated that the only time Warner can "instruct" the commissioner about the management of his portfolio is if he is passing on a policy decision of the Government; not of Warner. He has been talking to everybody but the Commissioner and running with everything he is told and using it in a childish way against Mr Gibbs. It is now time for the Prime Minister to act.
I hope both Commissioner Gibbs and Deputy Commissioner Jack Ewatski are two-thirds of the way through the writing of their experiences of trying to manage a Police Service that is 50 years behind time and in a Third World country with people like Ramesh Deosaran and Jack Warner breathing down their necks at every turn and talking about things of which they know nothing.
The commissioners could title the book: Trying To Do 21st Century Policing In A 17th Century Country. They should definitely not let any opportunity pass when they return to Canada next year to tell the world what backward people we are and what backward politicians we have.
In the same way that Jack Warner was the driving force behind the Government's election victory in 2010, he will be the main reason for it losing the Government in 2012. Mark my words!
