Just received from Paula Kerr-Jarrett
March 25, 2014 Businesswoman and JLP Caretaker for Eastern Hanover, Mrs. Paula Kerr-Jarrett today called for calm in Hopewell, Hanover following the shooting of a taxi driver by a Policeman during a scuffle.
She also called on the INDECOM to leave no stone unturned in its investigation into the incident. She noted that given the fact that a video of the incident was captured and circulated across social media, it is even more critical that not only must Justice be done; it must also be seen to be done.
Mrs. Kerr-Jarrett encouraged all citizens to be respectful to the Police and implored the Police to exercise restraint despite the stressful circumstances they face.
In the meantime, Mrs. Kerr-Jarrett called on INDECOM to give an update on investigations into an incident involving the Police personnel, November last year, from the same station that left one teenager dead and another in hospital.
