Magnetic media TV attributed the following statement to Nigel Dakin the Colonial Power (UK) Governor of the Turks and Caicos on July 26, 2020 marking one year as Governor of the Turks and Caicos Islands:
”Young men are killing each other and the majority of serious crime is linked to turf or gang wars”.
According to Magnetic media the Governor an avid Instagram user continued, “A regular contributor to my Instagram account therefore quite reasonably asked yesterday for timelines as to when she could expect changes. This was my response: Almost immediately if public outrage about crime converted to the public providing information about crime in equal measure…”
Sometime those who have a bird’s eyes view perched high above the rest of us mere mortals most of the times have distorted vision of the reality on the ground . The citizens of the Turks and Caicos Islands know the Police Force more than the Governor and they know more about the criminal elements that have infected the Police force and allowed to operate with impunity.
Why knowing what they know, any right minded citizens would put their lives in danger to provide information to the quasi criminal enterprise that passes as the Turks and Caicos Islands Police Force? Citizens know that as soon as they pass information on to the police the criminals know their names and addresses before they hang up the phone.
The main reasons why crimes go unsolved in the Turks and Caicos Islands are lack of public confidence in the police force; the non-confidential nature of the police officers; incompetence and that generally the intelligence and qualifications of the majority police officers are so low that they cannot perform basic investigative tasks.
We may be wrong but we doubt it and in case anyone thinks that we are wrong let us talk bout dat!
