Hmm, Fishs, I'm not so sure about this: "One more thing he doh dance to nobody else tune but his own"   

He's a political appointee, and, as such, many of his long term strategies would have to suit PP. And look how he ducked the whole bribery investigation issue. I know Bakes and I disagree on this one, but I felt he showed a distinct lack of backbone and kissed Kamlas ass on that one.

FS, you don't even have to go as far as the FIFA/Jack bribery issue to give him a fail.  His first big test to me to show whether or not he is his own man was the Nazim Mohammed issue.   I lost all respect and hope I had for him after that.

Fishs, you say yuh does come home from time to time??    Well in that case I hope you were being sarcastic in your rating of Gibbs.   The man is a failure with a big fat F....

For those in the know and who actually have an informed opinion:

What were the goals/expectations after one year?  Which ones did he meet, and which ones did he not meet?

 I think he has done a wonderful job regardless of what detractors say.
Murder rate lowest in years, more police ketching drunk drivers, Jack Warner resigning because he fraid him, his uniform real sharp looking not scruffy like some before, his english is impeccable, he has the perfect poker face and hang dog face and he has come from a tough neighbourhood as a youth, all in all for 1 yrs work I give him a thumbs up.

One more thing he doh dance to nobody else tune but his own.

Keep in mind that Fishs probably not living on the T&T landmass, if anything as his name implies he probably living in the seas round T&T which might be relatively crime free!!
But then again seeing all them boats regularly coming in with drugs & guns, he must have cause to wonder why Gibbs and them not doing enough about that to cut down crime in the country!  ;)

Sandy said Gibbs and Tonto out of the country. The journo say, shouldn't he be back as this is the biggest police operation of his tenure. Sandy said its not his decision.

This is fishy. You DO NOT call a SOE and not tell your top policemen to come back and organise it. Who's in control? The doorman at Xen? This ain't right, something's up with the Canadians.

Deeks, I'm seriously hoping you ain't suggesting that Kamla sent the country's two top policemen overseas for their safety? Coz, boy, if she did, that dengue gone muffle her brain

Visa roadblock for Gibbs
By Akile Simon
Story Created: Aug 22, 2011 at 11:58 PM ECT


Commissioner of Police Dwayne Gibbs was detained by immigration officials shortly after he arrived in Brazil last Friday as he did not have a Brazilian visa.

Gibbs travelled to Brazil last Friday to be an observer at a meeting of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). He was expected to attend the conference in which a memorandum of understanding was signed between the United States and the European Union to strengthen their ties in alleviating the drug trade through South America, West Africa and Europe.

Public Affairs director in the Police Service, Sharon Lee Assang, when contacted yesterday, said she wasn't aware of any problems encountered by Gibbs when he arrived in Brazil over the weekend.

She said, "This is the first time I am hearing that and I am amazed that sometimes you folks in the media get information long before me and I am working in the police service," Assang said.

However, Gibbs, during a telephone interview from Brazil yesterday, said he was kept at the airport for approximately four hours while officials at the Brazilian Embassy in Port of Spain arranged a visa for him.

He said he was not allowed to leave the airport by immigration officials. He said he was asked, at short notice, to be an observer at the IACP meeting.

"I wasn't informed that I needed a visa to travel to Brazil. I used my Canadian passport and when I came off the plane and headed to the terminal, I was asked for my visa which I did not have.

"I remained seated at the airport in the general area for three to four hours as people on both ends were working to sort it out. I appreciate everything everyone has done in such short space of time, given the fact it was Saturday and offices would have been closed."

After Gibbs received his visa, he was allowed to leave the airport terminal .

He is expected to return to the country later today.

Explains a lot.
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

I don't know if it explains anything... but it sure as heck raises a lot of questions.  This on the other hand says a lot:

What kind of idiot leaves the country two days before the declaration of a state of emergency on his watch?  Oh wait... the SoE wasn't planned in advance it juss kinda come up.  Okay, nevermind.



...but wait, what kinda idiot declares a State of Emergency when the chief law enforcement officer is out of the country?  Or doesn't have him fly back immediately for the biggest public safety crisis in the nation's history?

Damn- that must be frustrating...Did he board in T&T? Surprised they allowed him to board.  

For the U.S. at least I know the agent at the desk will check to see if you have a valid U.S. visa before even issuing you a boarding pass.

As much as I've never been Gibbs No1 supporter, this madness today about his "racist" comment is crazy. Talking about how the arrested people would be identified and imprisoned, Gibbs said "It will take time to tell who's who in the zoo"

Apparently Gibbs was making a reference to African slaves who were put in zoos.

Are they crazy? Gibbs statement, in my opinion, reflects his opinion that in this multi racial society, no sane person would equate a common phrase with racism. I often use the phrase "all over him like white on rice" Is that racist? Or "pot calling the kettle black"?   I remember the mad days in UK when they took away the word blackboard and replaced it with chalkboard so it didn't offend people of colour, while quite forgetting that white people are called "Chalky" across the world.

You've never been likened to a monkey... so you wouldn't understand.  And I've never heard white people referred to as "chalky".
