    i dont know, but its very funny and unusual that the police are only capable of making arrests on charges that include ‘drugs’…must be that the robberies and all that other stuff less important stuff like murder arent as important to them, as getting their hands on the drugs seems to b the priority…you seize drugs, you create more crime, hands down…


    this is clearly an arguement that can never be won, as everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but it is something to think about. but from what i have been observing and listening to in daily random conversation i can tell something is not right.


    Its very alarming.

    This is obviously a  publicity stunt to make us believe something is being done. For those who have forgotten where we have come from and where we are now. This show of force is obviously staged from the amount of cameras that are on scene, yet they cant show us suspects in robberies. This unprecedented staging of media was never done in the days  the DTF was run by Derek Hanes. This is really sad when we have to resort to this type of behaviour. I think it is time for Commissioner  Baines and the whole high command to go.
