Union Island Resident Abdon Whyte via his personal Facebook page shared his concerns about how some members of the Royal SVG Police Force continues to abuse residents on the Island.
The Facebook post reads: “At a time when we should be living more loving and treating people better there are persons in this country who still believe in abusing citizens that they took an oath to protect.
This is an elderly mentally challenged lady being slapped by what appears to be a Black Squad officer in the middle of the streets of Union Island. Also, she stumbled back on another officer who basically assisted her in reaching the ground quicker instead of helping her. None of the officers in the short video can be seen rebuking the officer nor coming to the assistance or defense of the lady.
There are some very good Officers in the RSVGPF (Very Good!) and its officers like these that give the PF a bad name.
I have already sent the video and a formal complaint to the Public relations and Complaints department so I expect the good and upstanding officers to do something.
This is not the first-time officers have slapped persons or abused them physically on the island but I hope it would be the last. This is not police work, this is thug-like, abusive behavior.
This is not who we are as a people, police officers are to serve And protect not abuse!”
