Retired cop: That is not my son

Friday, May 19 2017

SOCIAL media is being blasted by a retired policeman whose name was given as the father of a man identified on Facebook as a bandit impersonating a police officer.

Retired Inspector Anthony “Bruiser” Charles told Newsday that the man identified as a criminal dressed in police garb is not his son and is not even a relative. Charles said information in a voice note which was also uploaded to social media is false. He said it was a mischievous act by a former colleague bent on tarnishing his (Charles) reputation and character.

The voice note states: “Batches, r.e that photo was posted with that gentleman with the tattoos, in the police uniform...

that is retired inspector Charles aka Bruiser, that is his son.

Southern Division, pest, real pest, robbery man...” Charles said he is angry that the former colleague who uploaded the voice note and photo took pains not only to identify him (Charles) by his given name but also the nickname he acquired while a member of the Police Service.

“That man in the photo on social media is not my son. I have identified the voice and it is that of (name called) who is a Constable.

I worked with him in Southern Division.

I will report him to the Professional Standards Bureau and I am also weighing my legal options because this is nonsense which has affected my personal life and also my family,” Charles said.

Persons have been calling him non-stop, he added.

Charles identified the man who is dressed in police uniform as being originally from Laventille but who now lives in South Western Trinidad and is wellknown to the police.

The Facebook post showing the man in police uniform is titled: “bandits in uniform, be on the lookout for this criminal, he is not a member if the TTPS share viral.” To date, it has been shared almost 10,000.

“Something must be done about these young officers who continue to put out incriminating information on social media,” Charles said. Charles said the voice note has hurt his family, some of whom are members of the Police Service.

Contacted yesterday, a senior police source said once Charles makes a formal complaint, the matter will be fully investigated.
