Reading between the lines

Re: Australian Federal Police denies report

I read with much interest the quote from AFP, “Mr. Timson was also asked if the assistance for the Samoan police will be affected due to the current situation at the Ministry of Police”. . . . . 

“Not at this stage,” he said. 

These are telling words in a situation where our Police Department is wrapped up in scrambling; blame evasion, bitter disagreement and irrational decisions. And that’s just the public’s view! Something is seriously flawed in our Police administration and it is slowly but surely dividing our nation’s faith in the integrity of the police force. 

If and when the AFP say “Not at this stage” I hear doubt in the ability of the Samoa Police to deal with their obvious attempt to cover up a covert group of Police management determined to protect their corrupt status quo. The tactic they are using is nothing short of bullying the Commissioner into submission. Shame on you Samoa Police!
