Authority is very much like a coin; it has two sides. Just as one would be sceptical of a coin that only had one side, we must be sceptical of those in authority who only bear, show or act on one side of their coin. The two sides I’m discussing are power and responsibility. It’s a principle all our elected officials should be acquainted with and mindful of.
I’d like us to consider Police Commissioner Gary Griffith’s response to the demonstrations that occurred at the south gate of The UWI on October 18. Students and members of the Students Guild held a protest against the lack of security on campus and the administration’s perceived lack of interest in the situation.
