It is comforting to know that we have an Ombudsman in Maiava Iulai Toma who is thorough, insightful and wise with respect to the gravity of the Police Commissioner’s failings in this case.
It is little comfort that Samoa has a Police Commissioner whose approach is based on an L.A.P.D. culture of guns and intimidation.
Allow this to continue and Samoa will descend into an armed public, suspicious of law enforcement, which is something the Commissioner seems to want for Samoa.
Do we really want to go down this path?
