Police chief man without a plan
THE EDITOR, Sir:
It is obvious that the commissioner of police, Major General Antony Anderson, has set himself a very low pass mark. As long as murders go down by four or five per cent per year, he would collect his pay cheque with a sense of accomplishment.
Almost a year and a half into his tenure, he has implemented no new strategy that would suggest he is committed to putting a serious dent in our runaway murder rate.
I have always believed tertiary education is highly overrated and would swop a little common sense for a PhD any day.
Apart from zones of special operations and a few states of emergency, there has been nothing more than platitudes and public relations appearances from the ex-Jamaica Defence Force chief, trained at military acadamies in Canada and the United States, including at the Harvard Kennedy School of Management.
With the taxi driver-led anarchy rampant on our roads, one wonders if the commissioner’s hand is actually on the wheel.
