The Coconut Grove Business League held a meeting at First Baptist Church last night. 3 armed SIB Police Officers showed up for the meeting. Is this a threat? Are we considered subversive or threatening? Are we moving to a police state?
I have always supported the Police. I am disappointed by this police action. I feel somewhat insulted.
It is shameful how this government is using the police for political action. It would be much simpler and more effective to provide me with a police escort. There is no point for them to waste gas following and tracking us when we can car pool and save the country gas.
Our leaders are disappointing children. It is no wonder this country is in shambles. As much crime as we have going on they assign 3 armed policemen to watch a small group of businessmen. I am concluding that this is the worst government we have ever had. We need to watch this government closely – they have dictatorial tendencies.
We thought the police were improving with the new commissioner. We see however that nothing will improve until we get rid of this oppressive government. They see only politics and power. They do not care a lick about people. They are determined to control everything and everybody. I think power has gone to the head of the leadership.
How will they threaten next?
My message to this unruly government is they are still employed by us and they are still obligated to act in our best interests. They need to stop wasting our resources. We do not pay taxes for them to waste.
They can send as many police as they like. They only show that they do not understand the Bahamas. A short conversation with any police and we realize we are related by blood or marriage or we grew up together or we went to school together. It is very hard to be a dictator under these circumstances.
Mr. Leader, we are the new Bahamians in the New Bahamas. We are not afraid.
Editorial NOTE: It is amazing the SIB could find themselves present where the natives are gathered, but they could not find themselves at the backdoor at Central Police Station.
