Are we looking within the mistaken direction?

By Carlton Ishmael

Once we view criminality, we normally have a look at the common man’s disruption of the law. It is straightforward to apprehend someone who the evidence points to and in some cases obtain witness support. But once you see and see the large project schemes that appear to go-unnoticed, we never classify them or appear to see them as ‘legitimate crime’ since it is finished above board and in full view of everyone.

But such individuals have more technique of creating damage, not only to the society at large, but additionally making a selective class of profiteers. I consult with such individuals who’re contracted to construct roads, or bridges, or massive infrastructure that cost hundreds of thousands, but takes endlessly to be accomplished, or within the shortest possible time finally ends up as mold-infested or has structural damage.

Take for instance our hospital and airport and highways etc. Such individuals know methods to bargain at the best level, secure projects which are priced at top dollars, normally hundreds of thousands, but are skillful at cutting corners, using inferior materials, or hiring non-skilled employees and mainly bluff their way through the system and go undetected and never be regarded as criminals or as having fraudulent behaviour.

In so many walks of life such individuals exist in our society and world wide. They’re even present in our police force and government offices; they usually band themselves as an organization and have international status and privileges, and if by probability they get caught, even have the technique of getting the proper defense team together to fight their case.

I lament the hundreds of thousands forked out of presidency to take care of all of the various developmental needs, that get siphoned through mental bluff. And sadly, acknowledged as legitimate business entities. After they select to not pay taxes, or not to present the federal government it’s dues, for operating and being established, in addition they seek amnesty and privilege concessions by singing the identical sad old song.

Within the meantime, our jails are stuffed with small-time hustlers, petty-thieves and low-class individuals.

The police seek material assets to fight crime, but despite all of the assets can’t seem to make use of the crucial techniques to resolve the scourge. More employees are requested in all departments, plus advisors and consultants, yet conditions remain the identical, or worsen.

The few smart and qualified professionals are those who gain the foremost advantages and cash in on the loot, comparable to the grants and loans searched for national development.  And what’s even sadder, their fees and work cost is way-above-average they usually use the words “qualified” or “skilled” to achieve favour.

Why do such white-collar employees never are taken to task baffles me, unless what I see or know is just not known to the authorities, or simply possibly there is no such thing as a accountability, or transparency as is usually required, or we just would not have a habit of investigating.

Perhaps we elect to say nothing and do nothing and so we term it as tradition or modern-day culture.

When the underside erupts we complain, when the underside rebels, we condemn them, but what’s blatant and in front of our very eyes we elect to disregard. We take endlessly to convict and detain, and easily say the wheels of justice move slow. We provide enough time for getaways, we even defend their actions; and we regularly, say that if this guy or that one can get away with it, why not one other she or he?

The one occupation that nobody desires to quit is being a politician, and each high-handed operator seeks to be their friend, or supporter, knowing fully well that’s the perfect option to get their perks, and frequently they get the collaboration they desire.

So, after we are talking about crime-solving, just possibly we’re looking within the mistaken places, or imprisoning the mistaken people while the true culprits, we take no notice of.
