Police Inspector Shervon Matthieu on Thursday declared that members of the Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) are supposed to set the example when asked how his colleagues felt about allegations that one of their own had allegedly sexually assaulted a minor.
The accused Special Police Constable (SPC) is on remand on five charges relating to sex with an eleven-year-old girl.
On Good Morning Saint Lucia, Programme Host Shannon Lebourne asked Inspector Matthieu whether there was anger or a deafening silence among RSLPF members.
In addition to indicating that police officers are not immune to prosecution, Matthieu said the police should set the example.
Matthieu’s interaction with Lebourne appears below:
what you police fail to realize is when you do people wickedness people have dirty hands to see t it your career or life is ended. You think just so any right minded person especially an officer would just go and interfere with an eleven year old?
He Should be Delt with Otherwise .To make Sure He never Committ that Offence .That’s the First Time He’s Caught in the act but Not his First Time .It’s Rumored That he have Committed this act on Several Children Under age
There are right minded officers that would still do such.
There are alot of men like him “force ripening” young girls of poor families. Alot of these children are from single parent households with mothers employed at hotels.
Inspector! What about the serial rapist in the upper echelons of the police force. Why is nothing happening in respect of the many females who have come forward, albeit quietly to report their encounter with this animal. It is my understanding that the force has said that none of the females made a formal complaints. However, reliable sources indicate that at least two of those females were medically examined and provided written statements. If that were the case, isn’t that sufficient information to commence an inquiry. And by the way, where are those statements. Will the force acknowledge them if or when they are made public?
Police or otherwise, those individuals are sick and depraved. Sadly it is not uncommon.
@ not uncommon – you are on point (ONLY SERIOUSLY SICK AND DEPRAVED INDIVIDUALS COMMIT THESE ATROCITIES–THEY NEED TO BE CASTRATED LIKE YESTERDAY)
