Gota wants Sri Lanka police reformed

    The Fish stinks from Head first.

    He can start by putting the criminal politicians in jail first, stating from his brother, Mr. 15%.

    Then he go after the rest.

    I always thought somehow the LTTE war can be won, but this one ..... I don`t think in our lifetime.

    Remove all the police buggers who joined the service 1977 and after. Recruit new officers and get trained them under retired officers who joined police service before 1950s. Before recruiting new ones see their family background for three generations.

    Also emphasize them any wrong doing going to loose not only their jobs but their family members too do not get any employment in the Government.

    I hope Gotabhaya can clean up the Sri Lankan Police force. Our police is the most corrupt police force in the world. The corruption started in 1977 after the J R Jayawardena - Traitor Ranil 17 year curse of a Government.

    Only Gotabhaya Rajapaksa can clean up the police force but it will be a much harder task than defeating the LTTE.

    We wish Gotabhaya all the very best in this endeavour.

    [Our police is the most corrupt police force in the world]

    May be the most corrupt and principle-less organization in the whole world. In South Asia Corruption survey by Transperancy International in 2002, Sri Lanka Police emerged as the most corrupt institution. It has not become any better since then.

    [The corruption started in 1977 after the J R Jayawardena]

    I Think I have to disagree with you here sir! This statement may apply to any other institution - not to Sri Lanka Police. Sri Lanka Police was incorrigibly corrupt decades before 1977

    [Only Gotabhaya Rajapaksa can clean up the police force but it will be a much harder task than defeating the LTTE]

    Absolutely correct!

    [Remove all the police buggers who joined the service 1977 and after]

    As a concept that sounds good for a starter.... BUT there could be a raft of FR litigation resulting from unlawful termination of services!

    [Recruit new officers and get trained them under retired officers who joined police service before 1950s]

    That is also a good concept..... BUT

    Most of those who joined the police in the 50`s would surely be dead or too old for anything now if they were alive and those who joined the police in the mid-late 70`s would very likely be retired now or nearing retirement!

    An important aspect should be to henceforth recruit persons with at least the A/L as constables with a better salary instead of the present Grade 8 pass qualification and low salaries. That will see more responsible people starting right down from the constable level bringing in more discipline to the police.

    Now what we see is Grade 8 pass mutts entering as constables and then when these good fo nothing idiots don the police uniform they think they are `THE` people and it`s like the monkey getting the barber`s razor or the horse getting a set of horns!!!( assayata ang awilla wagey).

    Yes, as you said it is not possible to terminate people who are in service. What I tried to emphasize was people who joined the Govt. service in 1950s were well disciplined and honors than the people who joined Govt. service in 1977 and after.

    If I am correct the knowledge of a grade 8 or JSC passed person in 1950s was very much higher than a person who got through O/L now days.

    Depends on the subject Mr. Wick sir!

    Civics (Prajacharaya) used to be my pet subjcet too. I used to win the prize at school. ( this also tells how old you and I can be). In my opinion, you are very correct on people`s lack of knowledge in that subject. And, seen what I have seen in Sri Lankan Politics today, I am happy that I did not pursue a career on that line. Successive Governments are to be blamed for taking that awareness away from the students instead of improving on it. we see the results today.

    But when it comes to subjects like Mathematics or science the new generation is well ahead of their counterparts of yesterday. Don`t you agree?

    Gota is the CEO of the slaughter house in SL there are no decorated soldiers in SL. Everybody got to the top by boot licking the politicians. There are no Colin Powel s in SL. The current govt. used the forces to tame and kill all opponents and the officers at the top know the govt. can t touch them. It they do the dirty linen gets washed which the govt. can t afford. i.e. DIG Vaz Goonawardane is one of them. He s loose cannon. Reform what????

    [But when it comes to subjects like Mathamatics or Science the new generation is well ahead of their counterparts yesterday. Don t you agree?]

    No Sir I still do not agree with you.

    In 1950s we had a subject call General Science, in grade 8 or JSC, and we were taught how to prepare Oxygen. Heating Magnesium dioxide gives Oxygen add Potasim Permanganate as a catalyst to make it rapid. This is what I studied long time back.

    Now you just ask this question from a casually selected O/L level student as a test.

    Mathamatics also like that, casually select an O/L level student and ask him to prove Pythagoras theorem.

    Still I can remember v = u+ft, s = ut + ft^2, etc.

    Sir my point is it is not the subject but the way we had been taught.

    BTW Sir Old age is a matter of feeling not number of years.

    I heard some time ago, DIGs did not like to claim their wealth as that could easily reveal how much bribes they have takens.
