Luzette King has some strong words for Commissioner of Police Colin John in anticipation of a ‘grand protest’ this afternoon outside the Financial Complex.
King and a loose band of activists will gather to protest for the rights of several teachers including NDP North Windward candidate Shevern John. Speaking on Facebook earlier today, Ms King appealed to Commissioner John:
“If you come there, we will take it that you coming there to shoot and tear gas us in favour of a regime that has no legitimacy and no moral authority and by extension you have no legitimacy, no moral authority.”
Ms King went further to call out the man in charge of the police force for his perceived political bias during the general elections campaign.
“You made no attempt to hide which political party you in favour of but let me warn you, unless you going to come out with your tear gas and guns as might be directed by Ralph Gonsalves, the Minister of National Security, stay clear. We cannot trust you a party hack to protect our rights as police officers should do.”
“We don’t want to see you, you are a party hack, and we will treat you as such and the same goes for Richard Browne.”
While calling out other police officers for their conduct saying “any police who has served, the Unity Labour Party instead of the public, we don’t want to see you because a police job is to protect and serve or serve and protect,” she also warned the government from touching S/Sgt Brenton Smith.
She sounded the alarm on a strong note:
“This is a warning, and as I say, unless you are prepared, please don’t come.”
