IT PUT A CLOUD OVER OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY. COULD THE 21 ARREST STILL BE ACCOMPLISH WITHOUT THE COPTER IN THE AIR? CHANCES ARE THE US WAS FLYING IN HELICOPTER AND NOT ON GROUND.

Does this suggests that despite the millions of dollars invested in our police they are incompetent and need supervision by our north American neighbors to do their job?

Why are we arresting people for weed? When the world finally relaxes on this, will all these arrests be voided?

You asked a good question. "Why are we arresting people for weed?" Did we arrest the web shop owners for the years they blatantly broke the law? And, the addicted gamblers I promise you, did much more damage to this country than people smoking a spliff. Oh no, it has nothing to do with money and the lawyers who take it. Once we educate ourselves, things will start making sense in this country. Until then, we'll get more of the same. Who really thinks the FNM are doing any better than the PLP? Seriously.

"Fourteen men “who are known prolific offenders” were also arrested for various criminal offences, police said. "

Blockquote

They always quote these figures but you never see that amount of persons going to jail or being charges. And was it really effective policing to disrupt the sleep and rest hours of almost the entire island to arrest persons for drugs? And always be suspect of any operation of which the Us is a part of. Just watch how they treat the minority sector of their own population when it comes to policing.

Marvin Dames got played into the fact that he participated into a "major drug sting operation" that netted 21 suspects! WOW!. Then they turn around and use this activity to brand The Bahamas as a major -narco trafficking state..

According to this report. they went into homes to arrest these people. If they have plans to make these drugs legal Why are they arresting them.

They must have had search warrants and these persons must have been suspected.

I guess this is the corruption roc wit doc is talking about.

Twenty one people arrested all last night, . . . . … Black hawk gunship above shining down searchlight, . . . . American soldiers and Defence Force marines, . . . .. needed to arrest our criminals, so it seems, . . . . . . Is the police force alone just not enough, . . . .. This job they're set to do just proving just so tough, . . …. .. That they need help of soldiers deployed in battle dress, . . . . .. The only viable option to counter this awful mess.
