Work with Warner, don't pull him down
The Express call for the Minister of National Security's head is certainly not surprising given the paper's obvious negative position on the People's Partnership Government.
However, those of us who know Mr Warner and the basic intent of his initiative, which unfortunately included the gagging of crime reporting on a daily basis knows that the language used did not reflect the idea which resonated in his mind.
Such a vitriolic attack against a man who in 29 days reduced the killing fields of Laventille to a mere isolated killing is not just unfortunate but raises questions.
Instead of seeking to destroy Mr Warner who has just done what no other minister of national security has done in recent memory, we should be finding ways to applaud him for saving the lives of at least 29 young men because the pattern in Laventille was on average two bodies per day.
Mr Warner's exuberance has nothing to do with him wanting to appropriate power unto himself; rather he is driven by a passion to save lives, the lives of young men and young women who are slaughtered in Laventille.
Common sense tells me that something must be wrong with our logic.
