Police, army circus

A resident recently described a joint police and military operation in Bull Bay. The trucks and jeeps pulled up in the community and security personnel jumped out. Then they then went into a huddle for about 20 minutes, speaking in whispered tones, obviously finalising their ‘plan’. Then they dispersed in various directions in search of wanted men.

By this time, all the gunmen had seen the circus pull into town, finished their breakfast, and made their way to their hideouts in the hills and neighbouring communities.

This highlights the woeful lack of leadership and common sense in our security forces. And it’s little wonder we are losing the war against criminals.
