Dear Pink. Please HMID if you post. I have a message for the police officers out there. This is coming from someone who has a retired police officer in their family, and who grew up being taught to respect the police. You, Jamaican police officers, need to follow the training that you received at the academy and STOP BLAMING VICTIMS WHEN THEY REPORT CRIMES TO YOU. ESPECIALLY WOMEN AND CHILDREN.
That kind of behavior is why people prefer to bypass the police and execute jungle justice instead. Because of my job I have to accompany victims to make reports all the time. Recently a teenage boy was sexually assaulted and the officer stopped writing in the middle of the boy speaking and asked him “Why he allowed it to happen” and he accused him of wanting it, when the boy was clearly beaten and bloody. And the ones who do it know themselves. It’s about time you do better. Remember why you joined the force in the first place. I hope it was for good reasons.
