A Reader's Take on Officer Jerome Blyden's Charges

I think there are too many young folks on the Police Force. Apparently a lot of them who become police are trying to get back at all of their enemies and that is wrong. That is part of the reason I left St. Thomas, it's a beautiful place to live but I don't want to get caught up. They have a lot of cleaning up to do on the police force. There's nothing wrong in giving the young people a chance but a lot of them are going to be a police to gain control of other people. A lot of these police officers need a lot more discipline.
