Ex-cop arrested & released

| 06/08/2011

(CNS): The RCIPS have confirmed that a former police officer was arrested on suspicion of criminal offences on Friday, 5 August but have not named the man or specified the reasons for the arrest. A police spokesperson said the the ex-officer was interviewed and later released on police bail. CNS understands that the arrest was made in relation to complaints from a female resident on Grand Cayman over allegations of stalking and harassment. According to sources, similar allegations have been made in the past about the 47-year-old man, who formerly held the rank of inspector within the RCIPS, but he has never been charged with any offences and it is believed this is the first time he has been arrested.

The officer is understood to have left the RCIPS last year and now works as as a security consultant among other things. He was released on bail a few hours after the arrest and no charges have been filed, but officials said the investigation is ongoing.

    OH MY GOD, how do these people sleep at night. I guess you haven’t heard CNS but according to the Caymanian Compass online this evening, "Ex-police inspector pleads to ‘insulting modesty’

    Former Royal Cayman Islands Police Inspector Anthony White pleaded guilty Monday to ‘insulting the modesty of a woman’.

    In court Monday, White was given a $100 fine and Magistrate Valdis Foldats agreed not to record the conviction on the former inspector's record.  “

      In the age of women demanding equality in everything, it is amazing that such a charge still exists. Since there is no equivalent charge of Insulting the modesty of a Man.

      The cards are already stacked against men. Human rights eh !  And the women know it.

      Well damn, that outcome is insulting the modesty of women!

      My ex got the same charge simply for swearing at a woman in the street, because she was shouting insults at him!  

      No justice in Cayman at all, at all.

    My sister works for the RCIPS and has for the past four years or so. She was sexually assualted in her home in April, 2011. After the incident happened; due to the fact that she & I are so close, I was the first person that she called. I immediately went to her. For a single lady living on her own, I was and still am truly concerned for her safety.

    She knew all about preserving her evidence and she did so. I asked her if she would like me to accompany her to the Poice & then to the hospital. She looked at me and stated that she could not report the incident. My sister who eats, sleeps & breathes the RCIPS didnt want to report what had just happened to her. I personally wanted to find the SOB & do him in for free!!

    However after she had calmed down and layed on her couch curled up in a ball she began to explain to me that how she had witnessed her colleagues going into the RCIPS database and giving their friends information. She apparently had spoken to a Snr. Member of the RCIPS about it who in turn had spoken to her Line Manager about it. When asked about her line manager if she had spoken to the Snr. Member of the RCIPS about the matter, she told him yes she had spoken to that indiviaul about her observations. His response to her was that the matter did not count as it had not gone through him before reaching the Snr. Member of the RCIPS. Therefore, althought what she has gone through is a horrible experience, she felt that if she logged the report that she would be victimized again by her colleagues going into the database and discussing what had happened to her.

    She no longer is the happy free spirit that she was. You look into her eyes & you see all her pain. She no longer smiles and beingthe quiet person that she is; she suffers in silence.

    So tell me Cayman, if she can't trust her line manager, Snr. Member of the RCIPS, her colleagues, then whom should she trust??

    All the bad ones get by because they make a lot of noise, and the quiet ones suffer in silence because of egotiscally bastards like her line manager.

    God DON'T SLEEP, HE DON'T SLUMBER & HE CERTAINLY DON'T LAY ON YELLOW PINE LUMBER.

    Line Manager  – Your Day coming

    Snr. Member  – Your day coming too!!! As both of you have daughters, sisters, etc.

    20:44 Come on CNS & say what? That the force should be investigated with a fine tooth comb. At least the poster of 21:01 has a point and I wholeheartedly agree… the force needs to be regulated and invesigated ALOT of officers on there are dirty and guilty of alot of offenses. You think the superiours don't know many of them do but cant get anything done about certain things because they don't have the necessary support for whatever reason. BTW it seems to be that way thru all of government not only the police.

    Much more of them need to be investigated or simply kicked off the force. Some have been there tooooo long and are currupt or simply dont care anymore, others have no allegiance to our Island and have NO respect for people. Then there are those that are only on tthe force for an easy pay cheque becuse police work here isn't like it is back where they may come from. The majority have no clue what they are doing or should be doing. And the few decent police officers are out numbered by the bad ones.

      Not only the Police force but Immigration is filled with similar maniacs. I know because I live right next door to one and you can always hear  his loud mouth cursing and abusing his girlfriend/wife. I feel so bad for her as you never hear her say anything in return, just the other night he locked her out the house. He is known to have a temper so I'm sure he is problamatic at work also. Weed them out!! We can't have these sort of ppl in law enforcement roles. They break the rules more than any1 else. Hense why crimes are rarely solved.

      • Silence of the lambs says:

        How can you live knowing your neighbor is behaving this way and don't report it and then come on here and chastise law enforcement.  That is your neighbor and you will sit on your backside and not report it so eventually if he kills her then you can claim the police need to do more.  THIS is exactly why our soceity has eroded to this point.  You know this is happening right under your nose, report it.  If the wife refuses to perss charges at least now they both know the abuse is no longer their secret.  You prefer to sit back and put your hands up and say its none of your business.  You can come on CNS and chat people buiness though.  We need more community involvement, be your brother's keeper stop sitting idly by complaining when nothing gets done.

          Ummh, yeah, I see…  Tell on the abuser, let the RCIPS show up, or not, so that they can tell him that his neighbour reported him…  If the neighbour is an expat, let the abuser send him off the Island courtesy of the Immigration Department.  If the neighbour is a local, let the abuser torch down his house, all courtesy of the RCIPS…  Why?  Because the RCIPS cannot keep their sources confidential, but more importantly, because they will not arrest the abuser on hearsay.  They don't arrest abusers even if they find the woman half dead, never mind on hearsay.

    CNS note: If you have received this BBM, the police say this girl has been found.

    It is encouraging to see that these charges have not been ignored by the RCIPS. We can only hope that the investigation is properly carried out and justice served. What could be more terrifying than to have those charged with protecting the public abusing their power? Given the current social anxiousness amongst young women the RCIPS needs to help restore confidence and calm with a NO Tolerance policy for these types of offences.

      This man is no longer a member of the RCIP. XXXXX  so this don't reflect on the RCIPS. Get your facts right.

      • Let it be said says:

        Well.. we are thankful he is no longer a member of RCIPS. They can do without any more negative publicty.

    RCIPS – Why hide his identity? You all didn't hesitate to publicly name and shame other ex officers that were falsely arrested in the past.

      They don't name a person until that person has been charged with a crime…

  11. Loren says:

    Now I hope that the critics of the RCIPS take note that bad behaviour and corruption within the ranks is not tolerated and that justice and punishment is given in good measure to all whenever there is sufficient evidence.  Well done RCIPS clean house and country restore the good image of the RCIPS and Cayman.

    • Wha ya say says:

      The article clearly states the person left the RCIPS last year. There is no indication that this was a case of corruption, nor has any punishment been given.

      There are far too many above the law…  That's the whole problem with the Cayman Islands.

      • Cayman Justice says:

        A little "bly" here and "a favor" owed there;  the code of "protect your own" is what seeds corruption and aborts justice. Let's see how the RCIPS handles this.
