On Charge, On trial, On target,

Well at 5:15 pm on Tuesday 6th May 2008, I was served with a charge sheet containing six (6) charges for an internal trial to be held by the Bermuda Police Service. These charges will give me an opportunity to vindicate myself and test the way the Bermuda Police Service does business in the future.

It is strange, that everyone is of the opinion that this whole trial was concocted or was rigged and even if I present a winning case I will be found guilty. Most people believes it is not about justice but it is about covering up the lack of intelligence, lack of ethics, to beat their chest over a victory they lie to gain but most of all to keep the other black West Indians subject to fear and afraid to express themselves and to use their intelligence at is present now.

It has been almost four months since I was suspended from the Bermuda Police Service and during this time, Bermuda Police Service seems to be dragging their feet in having my matter processed speedily; although this investigation was finished about two months ago. But God have blessed me with wisdom which I use to speed the process along, so I decided to put things in place to get this process on the way and to prove to all that the Commissioner of Police Mr. George Jackson, and Mike Jackman to be men of little or no integrity.

I knew it was up to me to get the ball rolling or I will be on suspension for the next year plus. So I took a six (6) minutes recording out of a 15 minutes meeting I had with the commissioner of Police and Mike Jackman and played the same to a very ambitious police officer. Giving the impression that the six minutes clip which ended abruptly was all I have and all I have been banking on, I knew that this individual will use this supposedly moment of weakness as an opportunity to advance his/her career by bringing to the Commissioner of Police’s attention the flaw in my recording. It was just a couple of days after I make this individual privilege to my recording I was served with papers for a trial, thus proving my theory to be correct, that “ambition has no friends or knows no loyalty.” Some may say that is an opportunist.

I guess now I have been charged I can get the opportunity to vindicate myself after which I can make the said recordings and the statements available to the press thus showing the whole of Bermuda and the world the quality of men that are at the helm of the Bermuda Police Service. Now I am very much satisfied that I am going to have my day at a trial. After which I will be granted the green light to release my recording.

There were three police officers who felt uncomfortable taking the garbage that is fed to the West Indian on a daily basis. There were Peter De Freitas who was made to resign quietly after he was set up by the BPS. Michael Hayles who is in danger of not having his contract renewed and there is Me Allan H.F Palmer who almost suffered the same fate as De Freitas.

Unlike most people I am not worried about my post as a police officer in the Bermuda Police Service. It does not worry me; I do not care to be employed with the Bermuda Police Service or being supervised by such men. My action should have given you that indication.

I did not become a police officer yesterday. Every one who knows me knows that I am a brilliant police officer. Let me asked you all a question; what happens when a small police officer out police the big boys? “You get action”.

I guess this posting is going to see another set of charges laid against me, after all on Thursday 1st May 2008; I was served with documents ordering me to comply with the following instruction:

Remove all post from my bolg/webpage that make reference to the Bermuda Police service or its officers

Desist from posting any further articles on my blog/webpage as it regards to the Bermuda Police Service and its officers

And I must remove from public view and advertisement posted on the rear of my private motorcar.

As it relates to order (3) three I was not aware that it was illegal or unlawful for a police officer to advertise a commodity, service, a publication etc.

As it relates to the other two orders, I will address the matter of attempted censorship as it relates to the BPS effort to violate my protected rights under the constitution of Bermuda. Chapter 1 sec.1 and subsection (b) of the Constitution of Bermuda that deal with the fundamental fights and freedom of the individual which clearly states:

Fundamental rights and freedoms of the individual
1 Whereas every person in Bermuda is entitled to the fundamental rights and freedoms of the individual, that is to say, has the right, whatever his race, place of origin, political opinions, color, creed or sex, but subject to respect for the rights and freedoms of others and for the public interest, to each and all of the following, namely:

(b) Freedom of conscience, of expression and of assembly and association.

Section 9 (1) which deals with the freedom of expression without interference to receive and impart (share) ideas and information and my freedom from interference with my correspondence, that is clearly outlined below under the heading “Protection of freedom of expression.

Protection of freedom of expression
9 (1) Except with his consent, no person shall be hindered in the enjoyment of his freedom of expression, and for the purposes of this section the said freedom includes freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference, and freedom from interference with his correspondence.

I do not have to explain to you the uninterrupted rights that are awarded to me by the constitution of Bermuda. I have never disobey a lawful instruction in my policing career, in the same breath I do not have a problem ignoring an order that I can prove to be unlawful or illegal if such an order is not in the public’s interest.
