“I have bought numbers before many years ago but I never won. So I said that I worked too hard for my money, to be putting my money in lotteries and numbers and so on, …I don’t buy numbers but I’m not opposed to it, I just don’t buy it.” Minister of National Security Tommy Turnquest was quoted telling members of the media recently. Is he the minister aware of the fact that buying numbers is against the laws of The Bahamas? And isn’t he constitutionally empowered to uphold all laws? The minister said he does not oppose to persons BREAKING THE LAW?
We wonder, was this police officer going under heavy police guard into this Bowe’s number house on Bluehill and Martin Streets, was thinking as we are, that since his minister can buy numbers or bought it in the past, that now he can use officers of the State to protect him and his winning? THE MINISTER’S ENDORSEMENT OF ILLEGAL NUMBER HOUSES CAN CONCLUDE THAT HE ENDORSES EVERY SINGLE CRIME ALSO COMMITTED BY CRIMINALS AND THEREFORE HE IS UNFIT TO BE THE MINISTER OF NATIONAL SECURITY! Imagine a police saying, ‘I don’t support thiefing, I use to thief in the past, but now I don’t have a problem with it, but I don’t practise it.” WHAT A DUMB STATEMENT TO MAKE!
This country is headed to the dogs with that kind of asinine thinking at the top!
