first_imgDear Editor,On Thursday, March 15, 2018, there was an exchange of gunfire between the Police and suspected bandits at the Georgetown seawall. Three persons, including two who were on the Police radar, died. There have since been conflicting reports in the media and elsewhere as to what actually took place. Some relatives of the dead men are perturbed over the whole issue, and are seeking justice outside of the Police environment.The debate on the use of force, including deadly force, rages. I am not au fait with all the facts in relation to the shooting, therefore I cannot say if the action of the Police was justified or not. Let me be pellucid: I hold no brief for anyone.As a retired senior Police officer, I am aware that the work of the Police is a dangerous one, and can be unthankful at times. Sometimes the Police are left in a quandary — damned if they do, and damned if they don’t.The International Association of Chiefs of Police sets the following guidelines for Police officers: “A Police officer will never employ unnecessary force or violence, and will only use such force in the discharge of duty as is reasonable in all circumstances. Force should be used only with the greatest restraint, and only after discussion, negotiation and persuasion have been found to be inappropriate or ineffective. While the use of force is occasionally unavoidable, every Police officer will refrain from applying the necessary inflection of pain and suffering, and will never engage in cruel, degrading, or inhuman treatment to any person.“The job of the Police is not an easy one. Death lurks around the next corner. I can recall, during 1996, chairing the closing session of a course for Police sergeants, at Police Headquarters. The then Commissioner of Police, Laurie Lewis, delivered the closing address. Among the things he mentioned was that when a Policeman leaves his home to go on duty, he does not know if he will return home alive. Six hours later, bandits riddled Constable 16418 Adrian Williams, called “Big Six”, with bullets not far from the East La Penitence Police Outpost. He died on the spot. He was the only child of his mother.I subsequently asked Commissioner Lewis not to utter those words again.During the last crime wave, 2002-2008, which was described as ‘The Troubles’, a total of 26 Policemen were killed. The then Top Cop, Floyd Mc Donald, had the sad task of constantly attending funerals and paying tributes to his fallen heroes, rather than giving out awards.The use of excessive force has always been difficult. The use of force, including deadly force, is sometimes a necessary part of the job, but determining what is reasonable is highly subjective. In the landmark case in relation to the use of force, Graham vs Conner (1989), the Court held that the calculus of reasonableness must allow for the fact that the Police are often forced to make split-second judgments about the amount of force that is necessary in a particular situation in circumstances that are tense, uncertain, and are rapidly evolving.According to Nowicki, “The standard according to this decision is the ‘reasonable objective officer’.Nowicki, who is a “use-of-force” expert, posits, “There are three rules relating to the use of force by any officer. Rule number one is that you go home the same way as when you went to work: ALIVE. Rule number two is that you don’t go to prison. Rule number three is that you keep your job. If your use of force is reasonable, you protect yourself, your agency, the community, and even your assailant. But when in doubt, always remember rule number one.”Yours faithfully,Clinton ConwayAssistant Commissioner of Police (Retired)last_img read more

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#cloud#news Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img audrey watters Drupal software, support, and hosting company Acquia announced that its Drupal Gardens leaves private beta today. Drupal Gardens is a content management & social publishing system, offering “Drupal-as-a-service” and greatly simplifying the creation and management of Drupal websites. Prior to Drupal Gardens, those wanting to utilize Drupal to build their sites had to download and install the code themselves. In some ways then, Drupal Gardens is the WordPress.com for Drupal, although Drupal and Drupal Gardens are feature-rich, offering more than just a blogging platform. But like WordPress.com, Drupal Gardens may be an avenue that facilitates the open source platform’s adoption. Drupal Gardens is hosted on Acquia’s servers; there are no downloads or installation, and there are multiple templates for users to design and customize their own site layouts. Drupal’s adoption has been on the rise with its implementation by a number of high-profile websites, including NASA, The Onion, and the White House. More than 500,000 websites are now registered with drupal.org. The Drupal Gardens project has been in development for more than a year and already boasts over 12,000 sites. One of the features as part of today’s release is simplified site duplication. This allows users to clone an existing site, including its design, functionality, information architecture and content. This is a play for the enterprise, says Acquia co-founder and Drupal creator Dries Buytaert, as it will allow site builders to quickly roll out new microsites.Drupal Gardens will be free for all users until the end of 2010, when it will implement a pricing structure based on site size and traffic. The platform also features a one-click export button, so there is no lock-in to Drupal Gardens. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

first_imgWith the dispute over Mahanadi river water sharing between Odisha and Chhattisgarh reaching a flashpoint, experts and civil society groups have urged the two governments to discuss all the contentious issues for a meaningful solution.At the second Odisha river conference, which concluded on Monday, experts said competitive politics over the Mahanadi water sharing was only making the matter complicated.A group of civil society organisations, river and water experts and academics from across the country and the two States gathered here to build an Inter-State Cooperation Framework for the resolution of the Mahanadi river water dispute.Politics over conflicts“There have been a lot of politics and inter-State river water conflicts in the country. But in the process of fighting, let the rights of the river as an ecological entity not get snatched. While the dispute between Odisha and Chhattisgarh is rife, it is unfortunate that both the States are treating the Mahanadi as a commodity and not a natural resource,” said Ranjan Panda, the convenor of Water Initiatives Odisha.“No doubt Chhattisgarh has constructed many dams and barrages without the consent of Odisha and has obstructed a lot of water, but that does not mean we can conclude that Chhattisgarh has siphoned off water from Odisha’s share,” said Mr. Panda.“We need a comprehensive understanding and analysis of the impacts of all these structures and availability of water in the basin. Let the tribunal decide how to make such an analysis and instruct Chhattisgarh to stop these obstructions if they are illegal,” Mr. Panda said, urging the two States not to close the door on dialogue.Internationally renowned climate change expert Saroj Dash hoped good sense would prevail and the two States would climb down from their stand and make space for dialogue. “The premise for the discussion should be cooperation, not conflict,” Mr. Dash said.“We don’t need either Odisha-centric or Chhattisgarh-centric approach. People’s rights on the river should be the guiding principle for dialogue,” said Premananda Panda, an academic.Mahanadi, the sixth largest river in India, originates from Chhattisgarh and enters the Bay of Bengal travelling 851 km, of which 357 km lies in Chhattisgarh and 494 km in Odisha. Odisha has been grumbling that the Mahanadi is witnessing an 80% reduction of water flow in non-monsoon months while Chhattisgarh says it is only storing river water.last_img read more

first_imgIt has been little over a year that Mehtab Hossain made his comeback to the senior national team after a stellar season for East Bengal.Having made his senior team debut during the SAFF Championships in 2005, the midfielder’s international career has been blighted by injuries and despite performing well at the club level, he failed to make the cut for the Asian Cup in 2011.Now with a new chief coach – Dutchman Wim Koevermans at the helm, Mehtab is aiming to give his best so that India can complete a hat-trick of Nehru Cup titles, even though players like Bhaichung Bhutia, Climax Lawrence and Mahesh Gawli have retired.”Some of the young players who performed well in the AFC under-22 championship have the potential to succeed at a higher level. It is hard to replace a Bhaichung or Climax but players such as Manandeep Singh have to take up the challenge,” Mehtab told Mail Today.Mehtab, who recently returned from Scotland after undergoing trials at Airdrie FC, said that the experience of playing in foreign conditions benefited him immensely. He says that the team management was impressed with him but he was not able to procure a work permit.”Playing in Scotland was a great experience. The facilities and the environment are excellent and the coaching staff at Airdrie was impressed with my skills. But I was not able to join them because of work permit issues. But I have got assurance from East Bengal that they would support me if I get a chance to play abroad,” Mehtab said.advertisementThe senior team has not played any tournament after the AFC Challenge Cup debacle in March and Mehtab admits that success in Nehru Cup would provide a boost. “The players know the importance of the tournament. The coach is trying to bring in a new style of play and as professional players, we have to try our best to implement his ideas on the field,” he added.last_img read more
