Who can you trust if you can’t trust the police ?


See it there now, the very same people are charged with the responsibility to serve and protect at the very ones committing the crimes. What are the poor citizens to do when they don’t know just who to trust?

A cop was arrested by his fellow police officers following an attempted robbery and kidnapping in St. James on Saturday.

Constable Derron Nish, was picked up Sunday afternoon at an apartment complex in the Corporate Area.

Constable Derron Nish, of the Matilda's Corner Police Station, was implicated in the attempted kidnapping of two men and a woman in Catherine Hall, Montego Bay.

It is reported that shortly after 6pm Saturday, the two men and the woman were in the parking lot of Mega Mart in Catherine Hall when two policemen forced them into a vehicle and drove away.

The police hierarchy was alerted and a search launched for the two cops and the victims.

The police managed to intercept the vehicle and rescue the three persons.

One of the cops, a Constable, was captured but the other policeman, Constable Nish, managed to escape the dragnet.

The police officer held at the scene was interrogated on Sunday.
The Police High Command had asked Constable Nish to turn himself in to the nearest police station.

He is being questioned by detectives from the Organized Crime Investigation Division.

No man, they need to do much better than that.
