It really wasn’t just about who has powers to arrest who, for an outsider like myself it seemed rather strange that the head of an oversight agency would sit down with groups calling themselves human rights groups, yet they never seemed to care about the right law-abiding citizens have to life.
Terrence Williams started with an agenda that was obvious from the start.
This humble writer wrote dozens of articles calling for William’s firing, calling for the repeal of the Act, not because police and other agencies don’t need oversight but because Terrence Williams was a toxic and insidious force that would cause more harm than good.
In the end, Terrence William’s tenure has been characterized by court action between INDECOM & the JCF. Court action between INDECOM & the JDF. Court action between INDECOM & the Director of Public Prosecution.
Terrence Williams was a force unto himself and it was bad for Jamaica.
There is no question that police need oversight. Terrence Williams was the anthesis of what is needed.
Because of what Terrence Williams and INDECOM represent, the nation is experiencing a rapidly negative cultural shift.
Every arrest had to be done by force because everyone now wants to fight the police.
Williams will be remembered as a glory hound who spent his time like a leech to the tax-payers and gave them nothing but grief in return.
INDECOM and Williams became the criminal underworld greatest friend, not because Williams or his agency are committing crimes, but because it’s mission has been twisted and convoluted to the extent it only aided the nation’s worst actors.
That is an even greater crime .….….
We have learned that the little Napoleon has stated that he will leave the agency by July, this is a clear indication that it was all about himself. As long as he couldn’t have his way he wanted no part of it.
I would like to know the day he will be demitting office I would like to beat some old pans behind him as he leaves and then throw a really big party.
He never was any good and we saw straight through him.
