Oct 2, 2015 –Mr. Vernon Francois is dear to many Saint Lucians. He is regarded by civilians as the People’s Commissioner. Police officers consider him the best Police Commissioner of his generation. He worked tirelessly to protect us all.
This great son of the soil is now brought to his knees. The Prime Minister, used all the weight he morbidly carries, to impose himself on the Public Service Commission. As a result, Mr. Francois was made Saint Lucia’s first political scapegoat. When Saint Lucia’s top cop becomes a victim of injustice, you and I, may very well be next in line.
It is now time to remind our leaders, that true power, lies not in the office of the Prime Minister, but in the spirit and will of the people of Saint Lucia. My fellow brothers and sisters, we must not rest, until the People’s Commissioner, stands tall once more.
