‘Police investigations’ now officially an oxymoron

The phrase “police investigations” has taken on an entirely new meaning after ACP Joanne Archie explained, at a press briefing yesterday, that the police will not investigate Works Minister and ex-FIFA Vice President Jack Warner until it gets evidence.

Police Commissioner Dwayne Gibbs’s 21st century policing apparently scoffs at the outdated model of investigating for evidence of criminal wrongdoing. Warner, who Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar placed alongside Gibbs on the National Security Council, is not complaining.

Thus far, a one-year police probe on Warner has found less information than a five-minute search on Google or Wired868. And, although the police failed to interview a single witness, Archie insisted the matter was “thoroughly investigated.”

Wired868 wonders if Gibbs’ men could find a Carib in a rum shop.
