COP Condemns Racist Comments

Wed, 2020-03-04

The Commissioner of Police, Stephen Corbishley, has condemned the recent comments on Facebook by the entertainer Tony Brannon, sending out a message this morning to the BPS which stated:

‘My reason for this message, is that the BPS has been associated with these comments as one of the posts, by Mr. Brannon, referred to a departing BPS officer. 

This has made me angry, as we have nothing to do with this matter and for those of you who saw the Bermuda Broadcasting News last night, it led to some (sadly) understandable comments, questioning if these views are held in the service by some of our colleagues.
