The police send the wrong message
This letter is regarding the article that was published in the Kaieteur News on Sunday June 03, 2012 on page nine entitled “Female decomposed body found in home”.
I am highly annoyed at the manner in which the police force has acted toward the death of the woman who was found murdered in her house at Vergenoegen.
It has been established that the deceased woman has a mentally challenged daughter who was left alone to wander in the streets after the body of her mother was taken away. A good spirited citizen saw the physically challenged girl on the road and rendered assistance to her.
Surprisingly, this good spirited individual was arrested for questioning in relation to the murder of the woman whose body was discovered. This is just a blatant waste of time! The police should be using this time to find the actual perpetrator instead of punishing an individual for doing what he thought was morally right. If this is the message that the police want to send to persons who choose to be good Samaritans then the future does not bode well for Guyana.
