The Challenge of Post Conflict Liberian National Police Leadership after UNMIL

first_imgFacing the challenge of a new age in post conflict Liberian National Police leadership relies on the 13 Cs of leadership. It is predicated upon “The 13 Cs of Leadership,” but I will elaborate on six for this occasion, which I wish to call on your critical thinking and philosophical assessment. The first C is CURIOSITY AS A LEADER:Specifically LNP leadership: This is very significant because it promotes an ongoing intellectual growth. As Black African people, specifically Liberian people, we must always be intolerant of ignorance, but understanding of illiteracy. That some of our people, unable to go to school, sometimes the faults are not of their own doing, were and are more intelligent than some of our college professors and Ph.Ds and other eulogical practitioners. It is never too late or old to learn, and learning is not a new or young thing. These people must not be left behind in our quest for advancement. With your capable leadership through LNP, we can take care of our own after UNMIL.The Second C: CREATIVITY:As LNP leaders, you have to be creative, innovative, with the power to manifest something new that will attract your followers in generating a collective team-players mentality. Creativity leads to positive change agents who always strive to make sense out of senseless situations of popular interest – to make the best out of the worst situation.The Third C: COMMUNICATION:An excellent grasp of language, with specific emphasis on Police Language, is virtually essential for a leader to lead. As LNP leaders, we must be able to communicate and easily articulate ideas and persuasively discuss concepts with others. Leaders have a willingness and ultimate desire to and generously share helpful, uplifting information, ideas, and knowledge. Communication is Key to constant connection and social networking.The Fourth C: CHARACTER:This addresses the inner, spiritual beauty of a leader. Character refers to a person’s, specifically a leader’s, sense of morality, and the moral and cultural values relevant to your belief systems, or what you relatively consider right or wrong. The Fifth C: CONVICTION:To have high ideas is a necessary qualitative condition for leadership. Leaders demonstrate conviction to ideas, values, and social norms that develop personal integrity, support society, and uplift the community at large. This must be a post-conflict Liberian National Police pledge moving forward – 15 years into the 21st Century to 2017 and beyond.The Six C: COURAGE:Failure is not a blow to a man’s ambitious march to his anticipated goal, but rather a test of his determination and optimism….COURAGE…….This means being committed to high ideas, even when outvoted by a majority, even when they say ‘you failed us.’ Failure is not a blow to man’s ambitious march to his anticipated goal, but rather a test of his determination and optimism; because, in the context of LNP Leadership, “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in times of comfort or convenience, but where he stands in times of difficulty and controversies.” (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) In essence, I would like to critically elucidate a simple synopsis of a guiding principle for a 21st Century post 911 and post conflict LNP Respect Chart:I. As a 21st Century post 911 and post conflict LNP, our will is to serve humanity.II. We will always conduct ourselves in a professional manner and maintain a professional surrounding and an enabling environment.III. We will go beyond the normal to provide compassionate and family services to each other and our first customers (the people of Liberia and our partners in progress).IV. We will treat each other and our customers with respect, dignity, compassion, and a sense of oneness in humanity, land of nativity, and nationalism.V. We are the ones to teach others that act on one term of a shared commitment – each one teaches one. One loss of life of LNP is one too many.VI. We will work together and share information and ideas through social networking and collective consciousness of Law Enforcement – Criminal Justice – with Police Science by undoing our miss-education of the past; andVII. We will collectively remain open and consider all suggestions and ideas classified and de-classified that help our unified movement as LNP. Yet, we will remain vigilant and unambiguous of our alertness in an effort to avoid public panic and paranoia. Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the mind, the spirit, the soul, the community, and the world if appropriately utilized. For knowledge is power and the only cause of fear is ignorance. ”I have recently developed and presented the Law Enforcement-Criminal Justice-Police Science Curriculum to Cuttington University’s Faculty Senate, Academic Standing Committee, and it was accepted and approved to be taught at the institution. This will commence at the main campus in Suakoko with AA and BA degrees, and at the Junior College in Kakata with an AA degree, with an anticipated projection at the Cuttington University Graduate School with MA/Ph.D in Law Enforcement-Criminal Justice-Police Science. The Liberia National Police was established in accordance with section 180 of chapter 13, sub chapter “A” of the Executive Law in the Liberian Code of Law Volume 11 of 1955 within the department of Justice and reversed under Section 22.70 of the same Executive Law of June 12, 1955.Throughout the decades the LNP has educated its practitioners with certifications and qualifications. Based upon this analysis, it becomes imperative to articulate that contemporary perspectives of policing can be seen as law in action, as opposed to black letter law as printed. It is legal realism giving life to laws that are at once substance, procedural, and restorative, concerned with legality, but also with due process, and doing justice. In this way, policing in the context of the contemporary, and a 21st Century post conflict and post Ebola Liberian National Police, gives life to human rights.Victor Hugo told us many decades ago that “There is nothing more powerful in the entire world than an idea whose time has come.” I say as a follow up that “There is no vision that is greater than the fruition of a creative mind.”President of Tanzania Dr. Julius Nyerere articulated: “We are the custodians of the cultures of our ancestors, mothers and fathers. We are the perpetrators of the cultures of our children….we have no right to leave behind a culture that is less filtered than the ones our parents left to us.” The LNP leadership of post conflict Liberia must be cognizant of the fact that freedom only takes a free people to give it up. For in order to produce the future, you have to create the future. Because by truth Liberia will rise in peace again; in love, Liberia will expand with dignity again; and with redemption, atonement, and reconciliation, Liberia will never fall again. With God there are only possibilities.Honorable Director General of the Liberia National Police, to my fine and humanitarian government officials, and our UNMIL friends, I thank you ever so much for your time with us, and I appreciate all of your humanitarian safety and security obligations to our people and nation.I wish to respectfully submit to you my fellow LNP practitioners our risky obligations as police officers must be guided by what Dr. King told us many years ago that “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in times of comfort or convenience, but where he stands in times of difficulty and controversy.”I therefore wish to express to you fellow LNPs – Honorable Director General, that the faintest whisper of a heart that feels alone and abandoned comes before the heart of a loving father who will go to any length to comfort his children. Mr. Director General, the LNP is prepared and ready to comfort the nation after UNMIL. When all conscious protective mechanisms are in place, and I am optimistic that through you it will and must be done, for our domestic safety and security after UNMIL and beyond, we must take a stand against sins committed by ourselves in the past.UNMIL cannot protect us more than ourselves.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Teams rally behind stricken boy

first_imgLA MIRADA – Exactly two weeks ago Monday, 5-year-old Noah Dowell was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Less than 24-hours later, it was removed at CHOC Hospital in Orange. And this weekend, his teammates and the entire La Mirada Baseball Association showed their support for Noah by donning the number one on the left sleeves of their uniforms, the same number Noah wore on his. “My heart is just overflowing,” his mom, Mary Dowell, said Monday. “So many people care about my son.” Dowell, who came to Los Coyote Athletic Field to see her two other sons – 4-year-old Brady and 9-year-old Austyn – play ball Saturday, said she was unaware until that same day that all the teams would be honoring Noah. “I cannot put into words how I felt,” she said.

Man who raped grand-niece after Take That concert jailed for seven years

first_imgA man who molested and raped his grand-niece 25 years ago at locations in Donegal and Dublin has been jailed for seven years for the “enormous and gross breach of trust”.The 66-year-old man, who cannot be named to protect the victim’s anonymity, was convicted of five offences after a jury trial at the Central Criminal Court last April. He had pleaded not guilty to three counts of sexual assault between November 1992 and December 1994 and two counts of rape between June and September 1994.Sentencing the man, Ms Justice Margaret Heneghan said the man had exerted enormous control over his victim and exploited her when she was a “young, defenceless and vulnerable” child.“Sexual crimes can have exceptional, irrevocable consequences of a devastating nature on the victim, their families and the perpetrator and their families,” the judge said.She noted the man had expressed no remorse for his offending.Handing down the seven year sentence, the judge accepted the man would have difficulty in prison given his age. He has no previous convictions and the court heard he has not come to Garda attention since abusing his grand-niece.The court previously heard that the victim was aged about 10 when the man began kissing her and molesting her.In the summer of 1994, when she was aged 12, he raped her twice. The second incident of rape took place when she and her mother had come to Dublin for a Take That concert and were staying at their relatives’ home.In a victim impact statement, the woman said that she felt dirty, angry and sick after the assaults. She said she would relive the rapes and abuse over and over again as a child.She said she now suffers from panic attacks, flashbacks, anxiety and depression. She said this has affected her ability to work and to hold down relationships.The woman said she is hyper-vigilant and protective around her children. She panics when they go swimming and will not let anybody else bathe them. She said this has led to major rows.She said that after her son was born she began seeing her attacker’s face in her son and suffered post-natal depression. She was unable to care for the child and she began counselling to deal with this.“All my life I have felt that I was living in a prison,” she said, adding that she no longer feels a prisoner of her past because she has come forward about the abuse.Patrick Gageby SC, defending, handed in a large number of testimonials from family and friends of the defendant. He said his client has no other convictions and was of otherwise good character.He said his client’s wife had health difficulties and was extremely reliant on her husband. He said the court was entitled to take this into consideration in sentencing.Mr Gageby said the woman originally made substantial complaints of repeated abuse at the hands of another relative, who has since died.After the sentence was handed down, the man kissed and hugged his wife before being taken into custody.Man who raped grand-niece after Take That concert jailed for seven years was last modified: May 20th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Man attacked woman’s car with hatchet in case of mistaken identity

first_imgA man who attacked a woman’s car with a hatchet while she sat in it terrified claimed it was a case of mistaken identity.Joe Craig appeared at Letterkenny District Court in Co Donegal charged with causing more than €2,300 worth of criminal damage to the white BMW car in Letterkenny on April 19th last. The court heard how Craig, aged 38, carried out the attacked after being provoked by another man who had invited him to sort out a matter outside St Eunan’s Cathedral in Letterkenny.The other man had called to Mr Craig’s home following a dispute over a football game.The accused told the man to go away but he then began to mock Mr Craig’s sister who had died tragically.The other man invited Craig to come down to the town and sort the matter out.Craig, aged 47, from Falcarragh, said he foolishly accepted the invite in the heat of the moment.When he went down, a verbal argument began and the man claimed his wife was sitting in his car nearby at Castle Street.Craig then proceeded to attack the car with an axe causing €2,309 after smashing a headlight and causing other damage.He soon realised it was not his rival’s car and sat on a nearby bench until Gardai arrived and he was arrested.Mr Craig’s solicitor, Mr Kieran Dillon, said his client had no previous convictions and that he was very apologetic for what had happened.He had also taken to Facebook to apologise for what he had done.Mr Dillon said “He was in a bad place because of the loss of his sister. The other party was aware of this and he made these remarks.“This has festered and then it just exploded. He was very apologetic when he realised he had wronged this woman.“He accepted his error and he waited for the Gardai to come and he was very forthright with them.”Mr Dillon said his client was a man of limited means and was currently unemployed but planned to take out a credit union loan to pay the injured party back in full.Judge Paul Kelly said “This is what happens when you take the law into your own hands.”He adjourned the case until July 9th to see what progress had been made with regard to compensation to the woman for the damage to her car.Man attacked woman’s car with hatchet in case of mistaken identity was last modified: March 16th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:attackBMWcarcourtdonegalGardaiHatchetJoe Craigletterkennylast_img read more

GOVERNMENT UNDER PRESSURE TO LAUNCH INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO DONEGAL GARDA’S DEATH

first_imgTaoiseach Enda Kenny is under pressure to protect gardaiTAOISEACH Enda Kenny and Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald are under pressure from senior gardai to launch an independent investigation into the death of Ballyshannon Garda station sergeant Mick Galvin.Sgt Galvin took his own life last Thursday fearing he was going to be prosecuted; not knowing that an investigation into him by the Garda Ombudsman (GSOC) had concluded six days earlier and that he had been cleared of any wrongdoing.The Gavlin family say they have no confidence in a GSOC inquiry or any third party investigation overseen by GSOC. The Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (ASGI) say Michael Galvin had been ‘tortured’ by the investigation.The organisation’s solicitor was furious.Michael Hegarty said Mr Galvin’s life could have been spared had GSOC simply phoned him up to clarify his position but instead they chose to pursue him.He said: “Michael Galvin did nothing wrong – absolutely nothing, there is no criminal misbehaviour whatsoever. “He spent 10 weeks in dread that he would end up in jail or with a criminal conviction because of this investigation. That is the fact of the matter. Now he’s not with us anymore.“This investigation rose out of a referral by An Garda Siochana to GSOC.“There was no complaint ever made against Michael Galvin and that’s important.“Arising out of that, GSOC commenced an investigation on January 1, 2015.“It wasn’t until March 26 that Michael was informed of this investigation – he was informed by way of a telephone call. “He received no letter setting out that he was under investigation.“He came under criminal investigation because of that anomaly – that investigation was two parts. One part perverting course of justice and making a false and misleading statement.“Both allegations are untrue and now they’ve said there was no wrongdoing. Well, it’s too late.”Senator Marc MacSharry, who knew Mr Galvin, has written to Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald demanding an independent inquiry. “As a matter of urgency I would like you to initiate an independent inquiry into Mr Galvin’s death and any investigations either ongoing or completed in relation his performance in carrying out his duties. It is not appropriate to have either the Gardai or the Garda Ombudsman Commission carry out this investigation as I am certain you can appreciate,” he wrote in a letter last night.“Given the very tragic nature of Mr. Galvin’s death and the very disturbing reports on the front page of today’s Irish Independent I am certain that you agree that an immediate and thorough investigation be carried out into this situation including the nature of any investigation being carried out by GSOC.”He added: “Mr Galvins family, with 3 young children under 11 are understandably distraught. The communities of Ballyshannon, Manorhamilton and Sligo are in mourning and frankly angry at the loss of who in all essence was a pillar of the community here in the North West.“The very least the State owe the Galvin family is a full independent investigation to provide all the the answers and circumstances which surround their tragic loss.“I very much hope that you will publicly announce an investigation as outlined as quickly as possible.”GOVERNMENT UNDER PRESSURE TO LAUNCH INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO DONEGAL GARDA’S DEATH was last modified: June 3rd, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BallyshannondeathEnda KennyinvestigationOMBUDSMANSgt Mick GalvinSUICIDElast_img read more

Kerr’s lengthy practice sets the tone for Warriors’ workload ahead

Probably an hour longer, to his estimation, than any practice last season.“This is different,” Kerr said. “We’re having to stop and teach, more stops and starts, more instruction, more Why’s and How’s.
