Obesity concern

Joan Mcgoon, Nadi | Sunday, December 24, 2017
I refer to Nishant Singh's article (FT 23/12) on police obesity.

Mr Singh, let's not confuse muscles with obesity.

The police force doesn't necessarily need stamina especially in our Pacific Island culture where "Big is Beautiful" and is something to be celebrated.

They need to be able to be relational and combat not just the "little" criminals but the "big" ones as well. Having that extra muscle or "fat" as you say does give them an edge.

Maybe we should stop criticising our police force and instead applaud them for the hardworking and long hours they put into their jobs, putting their lives on the line every day for the safety and wellbeing of the public, not to mention, being called on at odd hours of the night to respond to community emergencies.

Even families take second precedence.
