Dem Boys Seh…
If you see when somebody gets rob and de police come and ask you if you see the person who committed the act, do you have a right to say that you reserve the right to be silent? Dem boys nah think suh.
As far as dem boys know, de law requires you to cooperate with the police. If you see a crime and you keep quiet, then that can be interpreted to mean that you frustrating the course of justice. In English common law, dem does call it perverting the course of justice. In America dem does call it obstructing justice.
De last time dem boys check, a crime is a crime. And de police gat a right fuh investigate any crime regardless of whether it tek place in a constitutional body or not. Fraud is fraud and de police can investigate any fraud. And people obligated to cooperate with de police.
You have a right to remain silent. But if de police believe you have knowledge or ought to have knowledge of something and you nah talking, then dem gat every right to press charges for perverting the course of justice.
Think about what would happen to justice in this world, if everybody could pick up demselves and decide dat dem nah talk wah dem see. The world would end up in chaos and justice would be dead.
It mek dem boys remember the story of a man in an interrogation room. The man shouted, “I’m not saying a word without my lawyer present.”
“You are the lawyer,” said the policeman.
“Exactly, so where’s my present?” replied the lawyer.
Talk half and leff de other half fuh when you see wrongdoing.
