Police officers are being punished all over the place due to the negligence of certain technocrats. Why was the road rumps not fixed early?. Who is responsible for that ?.
The Police are not well equiped, yet we want them to act like their foreign counterparts.
Inadequate helmets, water canons, protective shields, shock batons, mega phones, teasers, communication devices, bullets proof vest, drones and not to talk of their outdated AK47 service riffles.
The Police are not super humans to use their bodies as protective shields when stones,clubs, cutlasses and others are being hurled at them. The Police can only use their scarce resources.
Every divisional command should be resourced with modern crowd control equipments to deal with situations within their jurisdiction. Equip them before you blame them. It’s time to retool them adequately.”There should also be periodic refresher and training programs for the police to update them on modern crowd control techniques and tactics”.
