This is not an ethnic issue

Dear Editor,

I listened to the press conference hosted recently by the PNC/R and to say that I was dumbfounded and flabbergasted by a statement made by its leader would be putting it mildly.

The purport of this ridiculous and simple utterance was that black clothes policemen are bent on exterminating young men (not criminals) of a certain ethnic group.

The persons who are calling for the black clothes to be disbanded should be subjected to the trauma of their houses being invaded by these criminals and seeing their loved ones being tortured before they hand over hard earned cash and other valuables. Perhaps then there would be a strident call for the criminals to be disbanded.

Yours faithfully,

C Hinds
