Linton accuses Carbon of dreaming up incitement at public meeting

Political Leader of the United Workers Party (UWP) Lennox Linton, has accused Police Chief, Daniel Carbon, of dreaming up incitement at a public meeting organized by the party on Tuesday in Roseau.

“Daniel Carbon wants to dream incitement in what we plan to do today, it has not happened yet, but he is dreaming of incitement,” Linton said on the Hot Seat on Q95 on Tuesday morning.

The meeting dubbed, “D-Day of the People” is set to take place from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm at Upper Kennedy Avenue. Linton said the meeting will be demanding the resignation of Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, and his cabinet because of their governance style and conduct.

On Monday the police held a press conference and gave guidelines for the meeting, one of them being that speakers must refrain from making inflammatory statements to incite violence.

But according to Linton, Carbon is not operating on a level playing field.

“I heard Daniel Carbon talking about incitement,” he stated. “Lennox Lawrence went on a Labour Party platform, he asked the people of Dominica to hunt us down like Obama hunts down al-Queda and deal with us. Roosevelt Skerrit went on a platform, asked people to come in our faces and call us traitors, when they see us in the parking lot, when they see us coming out of church on Sundays, when they see us at the airport go up to us, confront us and call us traitors. Daniel Carbon saw no incitement in those statements, he saw no incitement in people calling for our elimination, but Daniel Carbon wants to dream incitement in what we plan to do today, it has not happened yet, but he is dreaming of incitement.”

Yet, according to Linton, Carbon is warning against inflammatory statements at the meeting.

“Let me make my inflammatory statement this morning on the radio and say … Mr. Carbon, you have to be more consistent than that, you have to be more professional than that in the discharge of your responsibilities at the head of the police force in Dominica,” he stated. “You are not the head of the police force of Roosevelt Skerrit, you are the head of the police force of the Commonwealth of Dominica, which includes all of us.”

He also accused Carbon of doing the biddings of “Roosevelt Skerrit and his gang.”

“Even though Roosevelt Skerrit is so tainted in terms of his conduct, even though he is so unruly in his conduct,” he stated.

Linton also sought to explain the rationale behind the meeting.

“It is a demonstration of public disaffection and public disgust of where our country is headed,” he stated, accusing the government of being associated with all crooks and criminals all around the world.

He said the meeting has to do with mismanaging the Citizenship by Investment Program (CBI), the selling of diplomatic passports and diplomatic immunity “to crooks and criminals while mismanaging the economy in a way that is building dependency among people, increasing poverty and really allowing the country to gallop to hell, while they are using the resources of the country to do extremely well for themselves.

“That is what today’s meeting is about,” Linton remarked.

    Chief Carbon you were right first, you really notice the pupil in their eyes movement. Suppose there was a bomb in the truck. The Police are super human. A few in the cells sugar and dry bread. When they are ready to talk, they will get,water,and their cells clean only when they ready to spilt their guts. Who is the hero then.

      It depends on who were the real desperados inciting those people to riot. Could it be the same people who accuse the opposition of smuggling guns but fail to catch them when they had every opportunity? The sham of a police force is a disgrace and more like a puppet show.

    The demonstration was peaceful the police was fantastic so what went wrong after the meeting was over, why did the police wanted the truck to drive thru that massive crowd , when the truck wanted to move away from the crowd why did the police prevent them from going the opposite direction, their was no music playing everything was over so I can’t understand the motive of the police action . So why is the police running around town with tear gas, from what I’m hearing it seems that someone has a hidden agenda in play. God we need you to take control of the situation.

    “You are not the head of the police force of Roosevelt Skerrit, you are the head of the police force of the Commonwealth of Dominica, which includes all of us.”–News article

    Linton along with all the things you said above, this statement here is enough to express your dissatisfaction with Mr. Carbon, for no other reasons than that he is doing his job, as is commanded by his Employer, the Government, of whom Mr. Roosevelt Skerrit is the Primary Leader.

    What was the reason for you to add the PM in your response to Mr. Carbon, if you were simply dissatisfied with his warnings; and why should you be dissatisfied; he called for proper behavior, which is a demand prior to a function like that of yours?

    Sir you continue to express anger, hate, resentment, and discord, and disdain in all your presentations; you claim that PM Skerrit is: “unruly in his conduct,” Sir you speak about yourself, except that you are much worse than simply being unruly.

    Big mistake the UWP and other parties should never have agreed to move the time for their protest meeting action; Chief of Police if you had any security concerns you should share it with the people. The people have a right to keep their meeting at the time of their choosing and it is the duty of the Police to properly police that meeting and ensure the safety of those taking part in the protest meeting. Even the minority voices have a right to be heard under the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Dominica.

  8. February 7, 2017

    I want this government to put them all in jail until Dominica is developed, because he has sense at all. It’s opposition like him that failure in the world because of power hunger. Every time Dominica find a person with equilibrium vision for the country their is always a foolish person like him to cause problem. I am sure if you gave him the opportunity to goers one day he will act stupid.

    Linton you should really try and do the job you supposedly put to do. You cannot hold a proper debate in Parliament the only thing you do is make noise on the radio and even now on Facebook. Stop fooling the UWP supporters. You are not cut out to do the job. The only thing you are interested in, in becoming an Prime minister, well you have to work hard for that. Also you need to ensure you know the laws that govern the country. Instead of running your mouth as always.

    YOU WILL NEVER BE PM.

    Mr. Linton will no doubt go down in history as the man that delivered Dominica. I mean the man took our problems upon his shoulders and carried them to CBS 60 minutes on January 1, 2017, where he let the world know that Skerrit is destroying us with his passport factory and we need help to stop him before its too late. The world heard him and sort for evidence. Two weeks later an Iranian fugitive Aliraza Mon-fa-RED, a Millionaire was arrested with a Dominica Diplomatic passport and a regular Dominica passport. In another country upon hearing that news the police commissioner would immediately investigate this matter to ensure that the laws of Dominica were not broken. He would call the PM, the foreign minister, and director of the CBI for questioning, especially when it was alleged that Mr. Monfared resided in Dominica for months, before his capture. Daniel as he is called in Vielle-case has failed us and brought all of us to shame.

    The job of Attorney General would not be the right job for Gabriel Christian. He does not have the persona for that job. He is too arrogant, pompous, boastful, conceited and show off, and has ulterior motives. He is not in the likes of our past and present Attorneys. That job does not become him. Besides, he is beside himself.

    but isn’t it the same reason that you are being taken to court?to prove your accusations,so why the demonstration?isn’t the courts the better place to prove and justify your point,why are you asking the people who have less to gain in an effort which is clearly a political opportunity for you and your political party,to go out there and jeopodize their lives,and when i say ordinary people have nothing to gain,my meaning is,they never do,you think you will do anything for them once you get into office,no you won’t,this is the order of life,the poor always remains poor to sustain the elites in society,linton get your facts straightened out through the court system and stop trying to deflect what is coming to you by trying to create a big hoopla over fear where there is no fear,the government has decided to take things out into an open court,many of us welcome that,your little charles severin,zabooka and the fake back then freedom party stunt will not work this time,once beaten twice…

    • February 7, 2017

      @forreal February 7, 2017

      Well Lennox Linton doesn’t have the slightest idea what must be done in the office of the Primary Leader of a country–even our own little Dominica; all he has been doing for the past 2 years is trying to get Prime Minister and his government out of office–an effort which has failed miserably and will continue to fail; for God has decided it will be so.

      Should that man ever become the Prime Minister of Dominica–that will be the era of the “Great Tribulation”, which is spoken of in the Bible”

      But woe be unto Dominicans who would have allowed him that post-, for the Message of the Great Tribulation also said: “The days will be shortened for the sake of God’s elect” this means that the supporters of Lennox Linton, will get what they ask for; just as God gave His people, the Israelites the earthly King they ask for, against His Kingship; they suffered the consequences.

      Dear Child of Grace….

      I ask of you to try and approach these questions with impartiality and honesty of true Christian innocence which your pseudonym implies:

      Did the DLP really win the last elections or did they cheat their way to claim it?

      Why were people flown into Dominica at election time to cast votes by the DLP (with flight paid and $500 spending money) ?

      It is stated that up to 40% of the electorate may be foreign CBI clients who have bought their passports with no knowledge or link to the island or its society. Only DLP associates sell passports or have the funds in their accounts. Therefore their clients best interests/allegiance will be tied to that of the current administration.
      Is that why the DLP (Skerritt) wont agree to electoral reform?

      The term ‘orshan’ might be better applied when looking at the massive amounts of personal wealth being attributed to our dodgy gang of DLP foreign diplomats and the unsavory self indulgence by this administration.

Where is the law for Glenworth Emmanuel who was fire-bombed at his home?

    I don’t think DLP supporters should be coming out to show support for their party today and most definitely not in the vicinity of the planned demonstration. There has been no rally announced by the DLP and I find it provocative that DLP supporters would feel the need to dress in party regalia today?
    Show your confidence by quietly observing the lack of numbers at the planned demonstration or take heed if it does appear that the majority of Dominicans are indeed disgruntled?

      From what I understand even the DLP supporters were peaceful, so was it the police and whoever that cause the disruption because the meeting was all over by then.

    D-Day is a milatary term. It is the day on which a combat attack is to be initiated. UWP, are you initiating a combat attack against a goverment by the people and for the people?
    The world’s best know D-Day is the Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944, during World War II. UWP is there an ongoing war in Dominica?
    People respect the statement of the commissioner of police. By using the military term D-Day UWP has declared war by combat attack.
    Every D-Day has an H-Hour. Commissioner be prepared for the H-Hour. If they don’t have an H-Hour then they are nothing more than a bunch of fool plotting their wildest dream for power.

    • Bold Like Us (BLU)
      February 7, 2017

      Stupes! Nobody talking about combat except you Chief Jacco or is it Chief Jackass??

      D-Day is meant like “De Day” because that’s how Dominicans speak. Cannot say “The” to save their life.

      So this is just local parlance.

      Stop making every demonstration into a conflagration. We’re still living in a democratic society, the last time I heard. And therefore people have a right to express their views about the ruling government, whether by peaceful protest, vigil what have you…

All the evidence are there! how many more unscrupulous characters that has to be caught with Dominica Diplomatic passport for us to hold Skeritt accountable?

    If you are true patriot of Dominica, you will put party colours aside and stand for justice, accountability and respect because this government certainly doesn’t respect Dominicans.

    In light of all what is going on, they are talking about giving people toilets instead of addressing the real issues, is that the only pressing need of Dominicans, the eradication of pit latrines? Come on man, give me a break.

      Are you guys serious?

      Most Dominicans disagree with you and your methods and support the Prime Minister and the Government. You can demonstrate if you like and people can wear red if they like both expressing their democratic right peacefully.

A smart young police officer who knows he was not qualified for his job, is not liked by the security Minister, is not liked by senior officers, and doesn’t have command over his team, would play this thing very smart to see if he would not restore some pride for himself. Is he so blind that he can not see Skerrit MUST go? Has he ever called his counterpart in the US about Skerrit!

I told him Skerrit is going out. I told him Skerrit dragged him into a fight that he is not happy with and he is not ready for. I told him not to allow himself to go down in history as the commissioner that helped Skerrit destroy the image of Dominica in the USA and the world. I told him to remember he doesn’t have a US visa, like a fellow Conrad, who was able to run after his embarrassment in the GON Emanuel saga.

      Nonsense comment because this is bigger than Skerrit or Linton so go and seek out the information and read about where Dominica is standing right new, tell me what does Dominica doing with Tankers with the Dominican flags carrying oil, tell me why is Dominica involved in the affairs of IRAN, the UN and the USA those are the things you should check out so take it as it is. Small brain therefore small mind , A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

        The only small minded one is you. iran has a GDB of over $416 Billion Dollars. You dominicans have no ambition hence you want a leader that will only make deals with st.lucia grenada st.vincent..you are all small minded. Skeritt is the one outdere doing the work. while Mr.Linton outdere just commenting and critizing and saying is the truth.

        We need middle east money cuz All you world saviour AMERICAN is looking for THEMSELVES and there Economy is a mess. so look for American. TRUMP will ban ALL MUSLIM but still have businesses in all Muslim countries..You think American business men closing down businesses in Syria, AFGHAN etc nooooo .

        Mr. Linton if the prime minister is using our passport for profit:
        1. Find out who is the people doing the due diligence process. (get the paper trail)

        2. Find out who did the due diligence that allow the criminals to get passport( get the a trend if is one specific group)

        3. Hire a private investigator collect the money from us like how we pay for you to not to go jail. I will pay.

        4. Try to get a witness that will corroborate with your story. ( if all this money is being stolen some-one is disgruntled that the people that snitch).5. We have some of the accomplices you said that were in deep with our Prime Minister let’s go interview them in jail that is your skill set as a investigative journalist.( especially the ones in jail they normally snitch for deal.6. You have one of the smartest economist in the Carribean Thompson he can follow the money trail with some of his accountant friends of the program and get the evidence we need.7.
        Formal report BASED ON FACTS no…

      It’s so amazing how we react to these matters. Thanks to Lennox and his big mouth all of a sudden CBI money flying all over the place.

      The Commissioner is know to be very biased to the government.

      Tell it like it is

      With Skerritt acting like Coco the Clown giving peanuts to the kids, people like you are what is holding the island back. Maybe you prefer to live in a backward place existing on his handouts, singing for your supper instead of having real work to do.
      With a child already running the country into disrepute you are spouting some absolute nonsense here.

      Dear smh

      Please let us know of the fantastic big deals Skerritt has done for Dominica in the Middle East. The Iranian GDP quote is nice but bears no context to the rest of your statement as Iran has no deal with Dominica other than wanting Alireza back
      All that seems to come forth about Skerritt’s administration are dodgy financial dealings, dodgy diplomats, mysterious wealth appropriation by ministers, all events labelling Dominica as a place of ill repute. Now it looks like they want to curb the banks in Dominica too – remember Skerritt already making his money so what else can he show for 17 years in office?

    February 7, 2017

    Mr.Linton,

    You not fedup of the government suing you for your mouth. You want Dominicans to do your work for you. You are the kind of leader that would let a demonstration happen in the middle of the street where the leader of the country conducts business without any announcements by the police to keep order.smh.

    You run your mouth but you have yet to provide Dominicans a shred of proof of any crime by the prime minister. You are suppose or was advertised as an INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALIST yet you have not provided the Dominican people with any investigative work worth any court proceedings.

    Your work is just to speculate and just watch every mouth the prime minister makes. Mr.Linton make your own moves. Why don’t you go and do some investigative work in IRAN to get a report from IRAN of Skeritt dealings with the criminal you spoke about? isn’t he in jail? why not go outdere and WORK FOR US. We have the accomplices in custody. Question dem. I HELPING PAY YOUR PASSAGE. TO GET…

      REALLYYYYYY you all still saying no proof…..just see the number of CBI funded projects popping up all over, even giving shopkeepers money and caboowae money to restock lol lol…. that doesn’t say anything at all…..hunnay that’s a guilty conscience eh……… WHERE WAS ALL THIS MONEY BEFORE????

      Banks sayiing no to the CBI money,
      Ships registered in Greece but flying DA flags, and being arrested for illegal cargo
      ………….come on man ALLU JUST WICKED!!!!

      • smh
        February 7, 2017

        all I see is progress…and to make a passport sale is part of DOMINICA CONSTITUITION since 1993 so what are you saying. CBI funded projects is a crime? what exactly is the crime? so what ships carrying illegal cargo this is politics..if a ship carrying drugs has a st.lucia flag and registered to port in ST.lucia that means is the prime minister of st.lucia drugs.

        you sound just as stupid as lennox. so what if shopkeepers get money…was the question before “where is the CBI money going? and the answer was : ” but i not seeing it” when all you seeing the money is a lie. so this is Dominica. plain out. lennox will never rule he has no heart for the job. alot of prime minister laughing at Mr. Linton. ask yourself which world leader that supports him? which carribbean leader that support his views on the CBI program. smh. we need him to get REAL EVIDENCE. if a billion is being laundered get us the money trail. they catch ADAM SANFORD. so they can catch Skeritt..get us the facts sir.

      @smh. . .you are either speaking for crumbs (foolishly so), can’t think critically, too selfish to concern yourself with the plight or those who are being victimized or all of ‘the above’. When demonstrations happen around the world, where do the take place? Not on the streets? Demonstrations, by their very nature are not meant to be convenient. The opposite is true. And, in terms of the “proof” you refer to, what else do you need? Don’t you read? I could refer you to a few reputable online sources but I suspect I will be wasting my time. Why don’t you simply ask your PM to go to the US? He can’t go because he knows all the proof the US authorities have on him. It’s only a matter of time.

        February 7, 2017

        @MIA.lol…are you a fool. if the U.S wanted Skeritt they would already make it public. If they was investigating skeritt you would not even know about it. Similarly lke how they did to all people they have a case on. lol..he can’t go SKERITT fresh from Greece…..LMAOOOO..Greece has an extradition treaty with USA. so darling MIA they could have arrested him.

        They can arrest him anytime he is in US airspace. USA and Greece has always been very close.
        They were the ones that ask “U.S. asks Greece to deny Russian flights to Syria”.
        http://www.reuters.com/article/us-mideast-crisis-syria-russia-idUSKCN0R70WT20150907

        so I not sure if you making sense cuz he really don’t need to go to American if he is wanted as you say. TOMMY LEE took the government to court with PROOF of wrong doing and WIN.

        BUT I suppose to believe Mr. Linton have evidence of that nature and he cannot get justice.lmaoooo..don’t make me cry baby girl..

      You are now just acting the fool on here with this pseudo legal gibberish.
      With a little commonsense you would have already realised the the Govt’s own counsel dropped them in the deep end with some of his statements. Cant wait to hear the responses to some of his own admissions especially as we have a mute PM at the best of times.

    I think the police should keep the both parties at bay…..if they ever meet…..I am afraid …my heart is racing…..the level of ignorance within Dominicans is high and anything can happen…..its a volatile situation….keep the red away from the blue…..plzzzzzzzz
