Some recent remarks have come to the point of vilifying Shamima Ali for simply seeking that an investigation be made into the manner in which the escaped prisoners were re-arrested and the use of force.
Now there is the whole debate on what was “reasonable force” used compared to excessive force for all five prison escapees to wind up in hospital.
Time and time again we have often seen and read in the news of people in the course of arrest “ending up in hospital”, appearing in court in bandages, crutches or worse.
It was brave of Shamima Ali and now others like Wadan Narsey to come forward and openly question the use of force meted by the arresting officers. It is not that they are condemning the officers for doing their job of recapturing the prison escapees but simply asking the valid question—was all that force really necessary?
