We senior police officers reject Rohee’s ‘ass-kicking’ statement
We wish to record our distaste and outright rejection of the public utterances by the Minister of Home Affairs that he will be kicking ass at the community policing workshop on Sunday April 15, instant.
It may be that the free and easy ride that the minister has enjoyed after dealing with some spineless officers at the highest levels has made him delusional so much so that he appears to believe that his own puerile prattle playing to a gallery.
We have noted the indecent haste with which he interposed himself in the Ramnarine affair and it is to our regret that we are forced to remember that when they came for Ramnarine we said nothing, but please don’t let Mr. Rohee believe that he will come for any other and no one will say anything.
We noted the lethargy that characterized the minister’s approach to our now former unlamented head and his refusal to pronounce his loss of confidence on someone who had placed the image of the GPF in grave jeopardy.
We observed the silence which surrounded the Simon Mc Bean affair under the ill-advised stewardship of Henry Greene and we note Rohee’s statements that retired assistant commissioners have skills which are needed.
What nonsense! Does that man even listen to himself? All that qualifies one to be retained post-retirement is a pliant nature and the ability to keep a low profile with the occasional posterior brown nosing that some of us are not comfortable doing. Rohee’s habit of summoning officers to his office must stop.
Again Ramanarine was right about the intrusive nature of politicians which in our view has been facilitated by weak officers at the highest levels.
The man is unbelievably delusional if he really expected Greene to return to that office and get the level of respect usually granted to its holder.
We can only surmise that Rohee’s intemperate outburst may be symptomatic of a latent hatred for all things which remind him of authority as reposed in the GPF and its members.
This emotion is likely to be reflected in a desire to humiliate and destroy. Why else would someone of such influence remain silent in the midst of the Greene saga except for foolish utterances, if not to give citizens a readymade whipping boy in the GPF.
We fear that such an attitude which is probably a carry-over from his past does not augur well for a good professional relationship. When your attempts at brow beating fail what do you intend next Rohee?
