In June 2013, postal worker Cleopatra Wilson was robbed of EC$100,000 as she made her way back to the post office from the bank.

Police Constable Juliani Jack, who went to her assistance, was shot and the assailant escaped.

The police officer survived his injuries.

      No surprise here. All over the world there are corrupt and police officers, not to mention those who lust for a badge so they can brutalize their fellow citizens. Why would we expect this to be any different in little St. Vincent?

    Let us see whether this police constable with no connections in high places is treated any more severely than high class former High Court Registrar, Tamara Marks, who was only fined EC$10,000 for theft and the abuse of authority.

    As Winston Gaymes said, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.
