Is it not ironic, that the Police Spokesperson I referred to in the above note, Jessie Comeau Coicou, has now been named among 79 Police Officers the U.N. considers too corrupt to be in the force….a list that came out, days after another rich man from “good family” got careless enough to be caught kidnapping two other people from a rival “good family”.
