Linton demands immediate removal of top police officers

Lennox Linton, UWP and Opposition Leader

Leader of the Opposition United Workers Party (UWP), Lennox Linton has called for the immediate removal of the holders of office in the police high command in Dominica.

He made that call during a press conference held at the Prevo Cinemall on Wednesday.

According to Linton, the time has come where something needs to be done about the leadership of the police force.

“We believe that we are at a dangerous time that requires urgent action and we are therefore calling for the immediate removal of the holders of office in the police high command and their replacement with persons who will act professionally, to lead good policing in Dominica and protection of the public interest without fear or favour, affection or ill will,” he said

Linton was speaking against the background of the use of tear gas by police at what organizers have described as a peaceful protest for electoral reform in Roseau on Saturday, December the 15th, 2018.

He mentioned also, that the subsequent arrest and detention of Atherton Martin on charges of incitement, provides the clearest evidence yet that the leadership of the police force is no longer guided by duties according to law.  Instead, he said, it is driven by a commitment to derail democracy and the constitutional rule of law in Dominica.

“Urgent action is therefore required to prevent Dominica from being dragged down the dangerous road under the guns of the police force that is being programmed and weaponized to defend the corrupt political purpose of silencing dissent,” he stated.

A full statement from the UWP on the issue is posted below.

      Anon, wake up please and get to reality to the situation we face in our crippling and deteriorating nature isle being destroyed by this failed PM Skerrit, his corrupt Labour corrupt Government paying unnecessary 18 ministers who are worthless but just toeing the corrupt labour truck with a leader driver wh knows not how to drive and avoid the dangerous pot holes created by his same corrupt government. Where has all the states money gone and why is it we are in deep poverty that is seen and shown by this failed corrupt mission less Labour government. they are and have been dangerous for over 18 years and have crippled and put our island into deep poverty. So Anon, if you are looking fr bad and illegal behaviour it is well established within Skerrit’s corrupt Labour government.. You are in denial of the Bin Bobol and Fertilizer Bobol and you are trying to distract from the reality of who has been bad with massive illegal fraud. Go ask Skerrit. He must Go. Skerrit is not at Linton’s…

    Police Officers have an obligation to separate partisan politics from the rule of law. You CANNOT supress freedom of assembly and the right to protest by engaging in unconstitutional behaviors juat because you support the party in power.

    DNO, I am confused again. Where do those Gang Bangers Petrinots get the idea that they can make those threatening empty demands. That at their command people can just take there hats and depart ( and went).
    Talk about illusions of grandeur and authority. They think that mandates and bubbles are equal. They must be suffering from what Michael Fisher called ” the PLACEBO EFFECT.
    They must be chronic sufferers. The went UNIVITED to a Heads of Governments Conference and DEMANDED to be seated, then held a press conference. Who does that.

      DNO, I understand that Linton was arrested for incitement of violence a while back. The header of your piece says he “DEMAND” and it goes on quoting him and posting a written statement. Is that not more incriminating hard supporting evidence to be tagged with his tract record. Written evidence to be used against him and his opposition forces.
      Did he hear Athie Martin’s “bad mango in the mango barrel ” words or his applauding the arresting officers for their professionalism on Q ? I think Linton is being set up to take a fall by his own people . This Hammer Head Patrinot is heading in the wrong direction. But opposition forces say Labourites are stupid. I wonder who will have the last laugh.

        Joseph miserable John, you must be a very immature adult and probably go back to Junior High school where you will be taught again the philosophy of growing up and also the right to challenge any authority where they have failed and exposed by decent people irrespective who, and that any government, the Vatican, our churches, religious leaders are not immune to challenge and to be accountability. That is why my role models are Hon Lennox Linton, Athie Martin, Pastor Randy Rodney, Monsignor Jno. Lewis and others within my faith, politics, civil servants and God Parents and others too numerous to Mention. For your to write on Domininca, you must demonstrate your loyalty to country and not pick up, nor be blind and be seen to be promoting and in the company of failed politicians, like this so called failed Odd Minister Skerrit. Skerrit is not a leader, some say defacto, of a failed corrupt Labour Government with answers to address as far as Fertilizer & Bin Bobols remains the topic.

You are in denial and favours this hopes Odd Minister in preference fr your poverty Domininca and or poor innocent suffering Dominicans, who need jobs and decent housing and not this Red Clinic abuse inflicted on our poor Dominicans over the past 18 years. My grandfather always tell me that to protect a thief makes you an equal to this operating thief that you protect. This is where you are and that is not what we want for our ailing poverty Domininca and its decent people. Skerrit and his corrupt rotten Government has failed us over the 18 years in Government and our people have suffered enough.

      Voice of South, you just cannot compare Skerrit the intellectual and professional background of Hon Lennox Linton. there is not way that Skerrit can rise and will ever rise to this level. Go ask him, he will justify this to you . Skerrit is fed and protected by surrogates like you all to lie and talk nice false sweeteners of Skerrit. He knows he is yet and has no leadership and developmental skills. Look at the state Domininca, after 18 years, and because he is surrounded by idiotic clowns like you he plays the game of a child in kindergarten holding big professional jobs, with worthless so called advisors exposing hi to the abyss of failure everyday.
      Hn Linton, a good guy, is not your issue, we know you all are scared of him and cannot put him down, to where Skerrit is and will remain. We are inside and know this, you are at the outside looking in and we at the Financial Centre know that Skerrit is a failure, but we move with the motion and await his exit coming this election

When you take a very immature clown to run your country and perform like a political clown, Dominica has suffered consistently over the past failed 18 years. As we asked daily upstairs, where is the development in Domininca? Show us, tell us where it has taken place. Skerrit has turned our people to beggars and in poverty. It`s a damn disgrace and shame.

    I would not support the call to remove the “top police officers” but i would certainly call upon the Min. of National Security and the double (Dr) PhD; to ask one of the friendly Commonwealth countries example England; Australia or Canada; (with the help of his best friend Baroness “sousey cel” Scotland) to provide advisers in order to restore the credibility of a once proud and efficient CDPF; There is definitely a deficiency of Leadership and Morale presently in the Police Force created by the these pseudo political masters; the worst it has ever been.

      WOW. When we are no longer in certain position we surely do see things differently. Remember when the police gassed Roosevelt Douglas the late PM during the so call taxi driver demonstration. Oh yeah, the leaders then weren’t political? When we pretend that we aren’t political but our minds and actions are politically driven then our opinions and advice are usually ignored. My brother there is nothing happening today that didn’t happen 25 years ago. The same UWP held a grip on the police refusing the confirm a commissioner so that they could manipulate the one that was acting, you had nothing to say. I guess by then we were all friends. The tide has now changed but i guess they can’t learn. Why not teach them from the past mistakes.

        Oh TOM! TOM! you are wise but your remarks are other-wise; did you have anything to say then? i doubt it; at least you could have offered some positive advise on the way forward instead you indicated that what was was wrong then it is OK now. Why not teach them from the past mistake.

    I want people to see how a potential leader of a country speaks, how he refers to people specifically the law especially when the law was responding to them not following rules and law of the land. Basically, their message to Dominica is if you don’t allow people to do what they want then you are criminal police officers. I hope that this does not come back and bite them if they ever get into office or they need these same criminals to help them if this type of situations ever come on their doorsteps

      You have misunderstood the concept of what was said and also how this matter should have been better death with by Skerrit`s squad. I do not necessarily blame the police office, but place blame on Skerrit, the bind Commissioner of Police and the so called security Minister, or Minister for security, whichever ones appeals to his incompetence.
      Skerrit must Go and his band of failed useless minister must disappear too. This corrupt labour Government has failed us Dominicans and civil Servants. Skerrit is clueless and not disciplined to the processes of socio-economic development. We await the new UWP government under the leadership of honest, decent, experienced Hon Lennox Linton and his professional Team.

        Everything in this country is not as an immediate result of Roosevelt Skerrit? The officers were acting based on 2 things…
        1. The failure by the protesters to disperse when it was time to do so.
        2. History of protest action by the UWP in the last years.
        Another thing is how do we know that Lennox is an honest, decent and experienced leader? Because he says so? Because he “exposes Skerrit”? It’s called politics of the opposition. If you look on the track record of Mr. Linton, it does not speak to any of those. A matter a fact, if we pull ourselves out of our own personal agendas and see what is happening, his goal to bring down Dominica at whatever cost necessary actually comes at a great cost to the country.

    Why do people blindly follow corrupt leaders?

    They always want some base emotion satisfied. That is the mass public wants this. The corrupt leader does not appear so at the beginning at this period of gaining their popularity and appeal. These leaders always promise to “Make ——— Great Again”. (does this sound like someone now). Obviously they are very accomplished speakers who also use many hand gestures while they gesticulate to the public (sound like someone now). At first, these newly elected (corrupt) leaders can accomplish a few good things, but soon their true agenda comes to the front. They become known for what they do.
    Many go down in disgrace while others are defeated politically or militarily. But they do come to and end.
    Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Without checks and balances, laws, and proper institutions in place, tyrants and dictators can quickly consolidate power and cause a tremendous amount of suffering. Sadly, every once in a while, politicians and…

If you’re poor when 4D selling seedlings for 30 cents, or there’s with DYBT or NDFD; start your own business, then that doesn’t speak on anything but you as a person and your innovation. Also assisting people who need it is nothing wrong. All governments have social welfare programmes. Imagine someone who needs help for a medical or educational purpose.

    Is Linton looking for recognition? What nonsense is this? What is he going to do when his demand is not met? If Athie Martin broke the law then he deserved to be arrested, prosecuted and if found guilty he needs to pay the price. Why didn’t the protest take place in an area that was not going to affect traffic? The police was not consulted for a permit but were consulted to reroute traffic; is this conceivable ? Linton wants the top brass of the police to be replaced; he wants them to be replaced with people who will tolerate their hooliganism, violent mentality and attitude with disregard for human safety. Right thinking Dominicans need to reject Linton for who he is and what he stands for. He is a liability for Dominica today and for the future.

Leave Athie out of your discussion as he is very much aware of what it is to protests when an evil government has become corrupt, immature of good governance and respect for people who are poor and struggling to survive in Domininca while your political leader continues to waste states funds and engaged in Bin Bobol and Fertilizer Bobol, abuse of poor people through the Red Clinic.

    For quite some time now Blackmoore has been trying to secure change at the head of the police force in Dominica, but he was thwarted by Skerritt who wants his hand-picked goon to head what is now tantamount to the tonton maquot in Haiti. Why didn’t the opposition parties and forces give support to Blackmoore’s move to have Carbon replaced by someone from overseas? There is the need to be strategic and help your arch enemy when it will give advantage to your cause. It’s late now to cry over spilled milk. Skerritt is using the puppet Carbon to try and provoke a situation where he can declare a state of emergency and also give justification to the case against the opposition for incitement. He must not be allowed to succeed by the leadership of the UWP and other political parties in the country. Please work closely with the CCM and other groups to distance themselves from violence or anything which might be construed as provoking disturbances. The end is near for the corrupt governmen

Election is right around the corner, Mr Linton must be in the forefront mobilizing the discontent forces in a civil manner , while the rule of Law is being bickered around .

      He can still do and will do all that but in the meantime what is wrong when the leader of the opposition asks to have the leaders of the police removed. He is quite in his rights to do that and plenty people back him up on that. After all the DPF has a reputation that is not worthy of a police force in a mature democracy. As I said on numerous occasions before, the DPF is a police force in name only but in reality they are the private army of an aspiring Dictator. Let’s face it, in reality Skerrit can not afford to lose his grip on the country because he knows any new government would immediately begin the process of auditing the state finances incl. PetroCaribe and the CBI to mention just a few! The result without a doubt would be an international search warrant for Skerrit and some of his henchmen.

    Mr.Skerrit disassociate yourself with Mr.Astaphan.The hatred and bigotry this man spews everyday does not reflect who you are.Sir you were not brought up this way, you only know Mr.Astaphan because you are the Prime Minister.Sir have you ever wonder and say to yourself, If I wasn’t the Prime Minister would i know Mr.Astaphan ?Sir its only Astaphan to blame for your low pole numbers and eventually your crushing defeat at the next general election whenever you decide to call it.The more you delay in calling the election ,the greater your defeat.Sir please disassociate yourself with man.

    The Patrinot is Chief is so afraid of the police. Does the hatred he has been spewing against the police for the last 10 years indicate a mind set of a criminal ? They say criminals see the police as their biggest enemy.

The Bin and Fertilizer Bobols. Go ask your failed Skerrit he may the details of this. As sitting Prime Minister and Minster, he will certainly know alot of thi happening, and went into denial, and after Hon Linto exposed him and them in Labour government of how they went about this bool thievery they denied it, until the evidence was shown and these clowns says it was a mistake. If you are still in love with these government fools then you have also taint yourself.

    Whilst I agree with Lennox to get them removed from service, I’m in no doubt that the orders came from Skerrit. For that reason Skerrit is not gonna sack any of them. The root of all problems in DA is Skerrit because he is in control of all the institutions. Make no mistake about that!

    Mr. Skerrit manipulates every public institution in Dominica for his selfish and diabolical political purpose. The top echelon of the Police Force is entirely made up of political lackeys of the current government. The police have clearly now become part of the problem. They arrest innocent citizens on frivolous and fabricated charges. This is to ingratiate themselves into the arms of the PM for selfish motives (promotion). They have no discernible skills. They are mostly inarticulate, a set of intellectual featherweights. For any senior police officer to instruct his juniors to shoot tear gas canisters directly at women and children in a peaceful demonstration is appallingly irresponsible. The Dominica Police Force has too many tainted men of straw in it.

I am no fan of UWP, I am proud to admit that, but your combative style continues to give me the drive to defend what is right for this Country. PM Skerrit has all the qualities to continue to steer the ship in the right direction. We will stand with him through thick and thin, and the more you make demands, the stronger our support become for our astute, charismatic, caring leader.

      We need the intelligence and trust, with the exposure, experience of a dedicated trusted Dominican and this is in the person of Hon Lennox Linton and his professional mature UWP Team.
      Skerrit is just not in this Link. His Labour government is vastly highly corrupt and they have imposed more poverty on poor people. All Skerrit does is hop and hop a over the pace and comes back with nice bobol talk but nothing of substance and development focus for our Dominicans.
      Skerrit must go, he is a failure.

        Linton did not go to college; this disqualifies him to be a prime minister. He did not have the patience and foritude to make it through acadamia. As I have said before a person like Thompson Fontaine should be at the helm of the UWP ; then the UWP would have some credibility and respect. I will never vote for an uneducated person and will encourage others to do the same.

How many PM have had a Dominican appointed (reappointed) as Head of Latin America Health Organisation. How many PM have convinced more than 225 countries of the UN to plug into his concept of Dominica being the first Climate Resilient country of the whole wide world. How many PM has received two Honorary Doctorate. Is that a great man in the making or what ? He was not born great, but he will achieve greatness. He will go down in history as the greatest PM in the Caribbean. If that is POTATO Head give me more, don’t stop giving me more ever. Give me an excess of it.
