Linton responds to Skerrit’s accusation of UWP politics in Warner abduction

Skerrit (left) and Linton

Leader of the Opposition, Lennox Linton, has described Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit as a “broken man” following recent attacks made against the United Workers Party (UWP) during a radio program last week.

The statements made by the Prime Minister are in relation to the search and rescue efforts for missing 12-year-old Kernisha Etienne.

Skerrit stated, “It is a situation where we have been told that she was taken from her room by someone and that is a different element to it, but it is unfortunate that some are making this political. We are not surprised. This is how the UWP operates in Dominica. There is no genuine concern or care for anything human in Dominica by the opposition.”

However, Linton believes that it’s the Prime Minister who is making the situation political.

“The statement of the Prime Minister yesterday [June 16, 2022] is a statement of a broken man, a man who is dissatisfied, is unhappy like the rest of us that the search has yielded no results so far, but he feels it in a way that he made himself the head of it,” he argued. “He is supposed to be the hero  who finds Kernisha and up to now it hasn’t happened and so he is feeling broken, he is downhearted and so he makes a very unfortunate statement.”

Linton continued, “I am surprised that the Prime Minister can be making those statements…so what does he do like he always does, he blames the opposition. The opposition gets blamed for what? for suggesting improvements to the search and rescue effort?  That’s all we have done.””

Linton said for example, when as the head of the search and rescue mission, the Prime Minister went on the radio and called on all able-bodied public officers to report at Warner to help with the search and rescue efforts for the missing 12-year-old, “It  was basically a desperation call to chaos and disorder…”

The UWP leader is of the view that if the Prime Minister’s call was heeded, a number of people who are untrained and others who are willing, but unsuitable for the assignment, would show up and swarm the police officers .

“He says that one day and two days later, they do not want any civilians up there,” Linton remarked.

Linton described himself as a constructive man who wants the best for Dominica.

“I don’t have time for negativity. I want what’s best for Dominica and with everything inside of me, I try to do that with every day that passes,” he stated.

The police, on Saturday, June 18, 2022, captured the abductor, Keyan Alexander, but shortly afterwards, he succumbed to gunshot wounds which were inflicted by the police during his capture. However, according to Deputy Chief of Police, Lincoln Corbette, before he died, Alexander provided the police with “certain information” on the whereabouts of Kernisha Etienne which he said caused the search for the missing girl to be intensified.

Since then, there has been no report from the police on their search for Etienne..

    Man, you stop biting dogs….you are human and NOT to be “Barking Woof Woof”, this will get you NOWHERE. Stop making a Disparage Political Fool of yourself under this Blind incompetent Sitting Political Party and this sitting PRIME (ODD) Minister and his ongoing BLIND Party Supporters. The question is, what is it this visionless sitting PRIME ODD MINISTER has done for our suffering unemployed People and the Lack of any meaningful Development of our struggling People and children with absolutely no meaningful development and employment needed for those in need of honest, experienced Leaders to hold the office of Prime Minister. It’s obvious we do have an Immature ODD PRIME MINISTER in our Government. Our People has been asking where is our country going and who gives his fake Prime Minister to hold this position. This sitting PRIME ODD MINISTER is just NOT PRIME MINISTER Material. It’s all about this RED CLINIC 😜 to dish out our States money 💰 to our suffering unemployed people.

      “PM Skerrit, said and remember Mr Skerrit, doesn’t speak rubbish”

      Since only you are privy to what’s in Roosevelt mind; and the only one who understands the language of corruption, and lies he perpetrates on your kind; you have no alternative than to indulge in the garbage he spews in your face.

      Folks of a lesser intelligence, usually gobble up the rubbish that the inept, scum of the earth spews, and value their none significant garbage as gold!

      Any, whereas you seems not to be an intelligent individual, I doubt you know what is rubbish, and what’s not! I’ll simply tell you nothing Roosevelt speak can be considered artefact; but rather all fart indeed!

      You do not possess any thinking ability; in my opinion you lack cognition; that is your mental action or process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience, and the senses has been taken away from you from this boy Roosevelt. corrupted Skerrit.

      How can you a man of your age who could be Roosevelt father times over allow him and his lies to dominate your mind; the corrupted crook has taken away every piece of your commonsense; you are now an empty shell!

          Roosevelt, the man talks so much trash, you know rubbish; garbage that even when he thinks he is joking he is laugh at.
          Here is an example; recently in Guyana he made a fool out of himself when he told the audience I brought two; I believe farmers with me; “one of them is my friend, the other did not vote for me.”
          He was simply ignored as he spoke that crap.
          How about that Mr. Man Dog?
          I am sorry that boy is my Almost Nearley Cousin you know because I am ashamed of his conduct.

          Now Lenny is my biological cousin I love him because he is not corrupted eh!

            And even if he commenced distributing the hidden billions of dollars, you will not get much out of it; because some kind of Mr. Thief will keep almost all of it for himself eh!

            Dem say there is a Mr. Thief in Dominica; I doh know him name eh, so I doh can call it eh; but if I did know that Mr. Thief name I would call it eh.

            Man Dog, while you and Dominica perish, thieves corrupted crooks and scamps are living high on the hog, living off the blood of the nation, as they fleece, and bleed the country dry to the bones.
            Look around you might discover who they are, in fact those who went from rags to riches in less than five years.

    I just think it is highly inappropriate and disappointing that both men, when faced with such a situation still find some way to make it political and about themselves. We as Caribbean people need to vote on the day, keep our mouths shut about our alliances and move on after the day has passed. We bicker and argue like ignorant people when the opposite is true. We have one of the highest percentages of literacy and overall intelligence for such a small island. Our education system is second to none, minus the possibility of attending university easily. We are so much more and should be so much more in our behavior. It should start at the top. Everything is an argument, we cannot respect a difference in opinion. We want to have our opinion, and want the next person to have our very same opinion as well. It’s just tiring

I understand you feel good when the PM gives you something not unlike giving a dog a bone but after almost a quarter century in power is that the best Dominica can do, dont you think it’s time to give someone else a chance, they cannot do any worst.

      @Bigboxofcornflakes, I don’t know about you but I heard Mr Linton on Q95 and he offered sympathy to the families and also expressed advice to the government and the inept law enforcement in the country. Because you didn’t hear something doesn’t mean that “nothing” was said, because he said something. Now that the kidnapper is dead the police look dotish, and unprofessional. The minister of National Security is yet to issue a press briefing or have a press conference. The incompetent prime minister who commandeered the whole search and rescue effort comes out with quarrel attack based on lies. The acting police chief just mammuteh a few words in a press statement and that’s it? Not everyone has to be on Trump promoting Facebook for you to believe that yes they said something.

    The truth is Roosevelt Chichi Royer Skerrit is the one who politicize the whole matter, and then lie about the UWP in order to gain political mileage!

    Right now Roosevelt should fire his chief of police for the blunder they made when they gun down the fugitive before getting information as to where he has the child hidden, alive or dead.
    At the moment; no one knows if this child is yet alive, and the only one who knows where, or what happen to the kid was the abductor now dead!
    What kind of police are these scum of the earth?
    If one was shoot in the the foot, legs or some part of the body, and is bleeding profusely, knowing information from this kidnapper would be vitally important in finding the kid, they should ensure the bleeding stop.
    In most cases applying pressure to certain area is all that’s required in order to stop the bleeding.
    Thy allow the man to die without getting informed: if the child is alive her life is in jeopardy, due to incompetence.

    I’m not surprised by the stance taken by the egomaniac Skerritt. He wants to be seen at the center of everything happening in the country. He seized control of the disappearance matter so if she was found soon after her abduction he would appear to be the knight in shining armor. He even asked all able bodied public officers to go out and search for the child. Soon after the police cautioned that too many people involved was not a wise thing for the rescue effort. Realizing that the search was not bearing fruit and the leadership of Skerritt was chaotic he tried to change the focus and blame the opposition. Linton is correct in his assessment of the disgraceful statement of the double doctorate dude. Why didn’t the minister of National Security and the chief of police spearhead the search effort? Skerritt’s ego and lack of strategic leadership collided and the result was the gibberish he uttered. Not surprised coming from someone who only has honorable doctorates.

    I don’t believe Hon. Linton should even waste his time on Skerrit. Laborites and all know Skerrit as a hypocrite and someone that knows a lot about blood sacrifice maybe because he reads the Bible.
    Right now the question everybody is asking is, with a 12 year old girl missing for over a week now how could a sitting prime Minister host a Father’s Day party like the one Skerrit held on Friday night in Veille case and then the following day Saturday his police chief announced they killed the Keyan Alexander with the 12 year old still somewhere in some dark woods. With that Skerrit confirmed who he is and Hon. Linton should just allow Skerrit to find ways to heal his own heart IF he still has a human heart

      How could any loving, caring human being, a leader of a country, hold such a lavished birthday bash, while a little 12 year old child is missing in the wild probably suffering from insect bites, deprivation of food and water, hypothermia and God knows what else.

      @The Eyes have it, I read a large number of submissions where the writers were suggesting that the focus should be only on the child ( whatever that means) and not even the protesting dump truck owners were to be allowed to get any attention or anything or anyone else. I found that to be asinine. Yes we worry about the missing child and what she’s going through and also the deranged kidnapper who needed medical and psychiatric attention. However life goes on and so travellers come and go, patients get admitted and discharged, you get the drift? If Skerritt had a birthday party in the same community or adjacent community to the unfortunate events then I’d have a problem with the insensitivity of it, but since his party was far away I don’t castigate the man and his friends for having a birthday party. I hope they had a good time.

    When a prime minister, who is in power for two decades, blames the opposition leader for the underwhelming state of affairs in a country, the leader, along with his administration, has lost the right to govern the country.

    Roosevelt’s obsession and animus for Mr. Lennox Linton is uncommon. I think I know the reason. Juxtapose the two men, side by side, Mr. Linton is far superior in intelligence, articulation, attitude, integrity, humility, emotional intelligence, self-awareness, honesty, courage and all that is good and healthy.

    To put it succinctly, Roosevelt wishes he had the positive attributes of Roosevelt that whenever he (Mr. Linton) speaks , people are captivated by his eloquence and his intellectuality.

    There is a playbook based on the prime minister’s personality that he projects unto the opposition at every opportunity he gets to do one thing. Continued hatred towards an individual. He understands even if he is terrible as long as he projects his own character on those who call him out then folks will stay away. In the same speech the PM attempted to rubbish the presentation of kyan parents who were only trying to bring the human into perspective knowing that what has happened was as a result of his mental condition. Mental disease take several forms and can be induced by several factors and individuality. Kyan may have been affected by a broken heart some come about as a result of abuse others such as psychopathic and sociopaths can be the result of parental neglect and lack of motherly love and attention. Some of this folks lose the ability to have empathy and only have people around them to use for thier perverted ambitions.

I would suggest more money spent on caring for the mentally challenged because the behavior of those in power indicates to me that they will need that psychological help once they are no longer in that position. I have learned the fruits of the holy spirit manifest in us as love, joy, peace, patient, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, self control and by those fruits you know the heart of a man. Consequently the fruits of the evil spirit manifest itself through hatred, lust, jealousy, gluttony, deception, lies, envy, inability to control ones self greed etc. By these fruits you know what rules the heart of a man. The leadership of Dominica is run by the evil spirit and it is quite evident. I suggest father sharplis along with the entire christian community to start a walk on the root of the problem.

    Here is how it goes.A report was made to the police of an attempted murder and kidnapping of a 12 year old girl.It is the responsibility of the police to solve the matter.The public should not be involved,because a crime was committed.In the case of a missing person,it is different and the public may be involved.In 1984 during the reign of the DFP 39 police officers were trained as woldiers by the 82nd Airborne division 7th Special Forces,from Fort Bragg,North Carolina.The UWP and DLP never continued the training.A multimillion dollars military range was constructed by the US government in Dominica,and both UWP and DLP allow it to go to waste.It is a fact that the UWP will use anything to make political milage including the birthday of Skerrit and the kidnapping of the 12 year old.Q95 is a UWP political station,and were hear Matt Peltier interviewing all potential witnesses and suspects in a manner to blame the government of Roosevelt Skerrit.UWP is making the kidnapping political.

      @Lin clown, you make no sense and you throw your double doctorate dude under the bus when you state that the public should not be involved, because it’s the Skerritt who asked all able bodied public servants to join the search. A house divided can’t stand. Not you but the police are the ones to decide if they want the assistance of the public. I recall as a member of the cadet corps at the Grammar School participating in a search with other para military units including scout troops. The double doctorate dude injected himself in the matter so he could come across as a knight in shining armor if she was found within a short time frame. The egomaniac feels bad because it’s taking long and the child hasn’t been found so he’s deflated and is seeking to change the subject. Why didn’t the minister of National Security head the effort? Skerritt is sick. Meanwhile the child isn’t found nor the sick insane kidnapper who needs medical attention. Stop making useless pronouncements.

Instead of excoriating Roosevelt, you also want to castigate Mr. Linton for defending himself from these disparaging and farcical comments of a undisciplined, asinine Tyrant.

        Politicizing this matter is beyond me. It is reprehensible. There is a minor who is in grave danger. And the political leaders of the country are distractingfrom the matter at hand. Right now I could care less about Skeritt and Linton, our main focus should be on the child.

          Mr. Lennox Linton, and everyone else has a right to defend himself and his interests from character assassination and erroneous accusations at anytime.

          Point your finger at the man who injected his dirty, selfish, partisan politics into the conversation.

          Does Mr. Linton looks like a human punching bag or an inanimate object? Stop your fake moralizing nonsense.

        A wise man once said, never argue with a fool, cause from a distance people can’t tell who is who. Whenever Skeritt wants to distract us from the issues at hand he goes on the attack, and we fall for it all the time. Case in point, instead of focusing on finding Kernisha, we are wasting time politicking. We shouldn’t stop to throw stones at every dog that barks, if we do we will never make it to the final destination; as Linton should not respond to all Skeritt’s utterances. We need to get in the practice of rendering that man insignificant.

          I have heard and read those quotes on many occasion. They can be useful in order to avoid distraction and confrontation.

          This one is also very useful – “Don’t attend every fight you are invited to.” However, we are human beings and all of us have emotions. Sometimes you have to stand up and give back in kind. You can’t always turn the other cheek.

            Agreed – humans have emotions, and we are also equipped with emotional intelligence which helps regulate our responses to situation. There are times when an emotional response is called for, and times when logic should rule the day. This situation with Kernisha is very emotional however, it dictates that logic rules the day. I won’t bug you down with details of the situation, but there is a child who has been out there alone for 5 days and four nights, no one knows her situation. Again, my opinion is that we put politics aside and focus on finding Kernisha to put her suffering to an end. Then we can go back to politicking as usual. Before anyone jumps to the conclusion that I’m pro Skeritt or pro Linton, let me make it clear, I am not. I do not have a pony in this race. My concern is Kernisha, her rescue and/or recovery, and the healing of Kernisha, her family, and the nation. Dominica is a Christian nation, let us act as such.

      When you cannot defend skerrit you add Linton to the mix. Typical skerrit sheep.
