No Police Involvement; G.S.U. Best Practices to be Reviewed

Chester Williams

During the interrogation by ACP Williams this morning, Usher was asked several questions pertaining to the incident, particularly whether he was roughed up by the officers or had been held against his will.  According to Williams, the unfortunate experience, as well as a subsequent investigation into what unfolded on Sunday will prompt changes in the GSU’s modus operandi.

 

ACP Chester Williams, O.C., Professional Standards Branch

“He was asked if he was beaten by the police.  He said no, he never came across the police.  He was asked if the police had kept him captive, he said no, the police did not have him kept captive.  It was just a matter that he got lost in the bushes and was able to make his way out of the bushes this morning.  So the whole notion that police were involved in his disappearance and had him held captive that is dispelled through the words of Mr. Usher himself.  We are grateful that the matter turned out this way.  The investigation will continue to see what could be done to improving the best practices of the GSU and at the end of my investigation I will write a recommendation to the commissioner in that regard and see how we can look at doing something to restructure how the GSU operates when they go on operations.”

    There is not one legitament police department in the civilized world that would condone firing “warning shots” in the air before a raid or at any time! Those bullets have to come down somewhere. But that is how our PD operates. Ridiculous and very unprofessional.
