Dutch Sint Maarten KPSM police SXM news
The Dutch Sint Maarten KPSM police, and how it works. It seems that I am one of the few St Maarteners who doesn’t see the significance in stripes, when it comes to rank and file withing the St Maarten KPSM police department.
It was after I started to post videos and photos of the police in action, that other people started to mention the stripes on the officers’ uniforms.
For the few who don’t know, when an officer rises in rank within the police department, a stripe is usually added to his arm patch.
When they run out of space on an officers sleeves, then they start pinning medals and accolades on his uniform until he starts to look like a pinata.
One of the boys in town were watching one of my videos, and he recognized a police officer. Probably because he had been in trouble with the law before, so KPSM were all too familiar to him.
He noted that the police officer had been in the department for years and yet only had one stripe.
His explanation, was that the cop was too stupid to rise in ranks, and that’s why he was still stuck at one stripe.
I am civilized to those who are civilized to me, and I am fair to people – I treat them the way they treat me.
So when I saw one of the officers that I knew quite well, I asked her about it. She had two stripes.
He response was shocking.
She basically told me that she was supposed to have already had four stripes, but like her partner she refused to do dirt on behalf of the KPSM St Maarten police department, and she refused to take part in any of their scurrilous activities, therefore she was denied time and time again when it was time for her to get her stripes.
She asked me to pay attention to the most decorated officers, and to see if I noticed a similar pattern.
I did notice the pattern.
Basically, the dirties, most corrupt, most criminal members of the KPSM Sint Maarten police department are the ones who are continously being promoted, and awarded positions. Not because of their ethics, or hard work but because of their willingness to do dirty work.
