The police did nothing to protect citizens at Agricola

Dear Editor,

The Wednesday, November 14 edition of Stabroek News carried an article on page l3 where David Granger is saying police failed to protect civilians in the Agricola unrest of October 11. The quality of the print was so bad I couldn’t read it, so I called Stabroek and the person (a female) I spoke to promised me a more readable copy. Well, I collected that copy on Friday the 16th which was slightly better but still not good enough. Anyway, in the part that was readable I read that the crime chief said the police had received information that persons were robbed during the unrest but no one had come forward to make a report. As I understand it the police force was developed to maintain law and order and protect law-abiding citizens. However, on that dreadful day the police  did nothing to protect the trapped citizens, while people were terrorised, harassed and robbed, so to whom should these victims of terror report? Interpol?

Yours faithfully,
W P George

Editor’s note
We apologise for the poor print quality  of page 13 in our November 14 edition.
