The Commercial Motorcycle Union of Liberia or CMUL has warned the police to exercise care in dealing with motorcyclists in the country. CMUL President A. John Kayon said some police officers do not know how to deal with motorcyclists when carrying out their duties as law enforcers.
He noted that even if a cyclist went wrong, he should be treated in accordance with the law of Liberia instead of the police applying discretionary powers. According to him, on a daily basis many motorcyclists complain of excesses by the police.
In an interview recently with reporters in Kakata, Margibi County, Mr. Kayon said though the police are hardworking, some in their midst want to spoil the good image of the LNP. He averred that the truth remains that people criticize motorcyclists, but noted that every society has bad people, including the police.
