Larry appears on youtube:
an extraordinary act by this ex Narcotics officer with whom one would think confidential information would be secure. But no, apparently information which it appears has never been documented is 'leaked' (gushed out) not for prosecution or policing purposes, but to restore some kind of balance in Bermuda politics (?), Larry decides to inform the world that Bermuda's opposition leader was linked to a 2003 narcotics investigation. See:
If the 'show' is not a political scam, why does Larry not address some more 'imbalances' in Bermuda; disclose some other information that it appears he chose to keep quiet about whilst a serving officer and in a position to make a difference? I trust he documented his 'facts' and brought them to the attention of his superiors; the Governors office?
Is this the only case Larry can recall, whilst head of Narcotics, in which he felt that there was evidence linking someone who was not ultimately prosecuted? Assuming he did his job, I would expect there to be many who came to Larry's notice, lots of people about whom Larry received information, intelligence or a bad feeling - when are we to receive this information from this ex-Bermuda cop, ex Bermuda resident? Or is the only relevance of Larry's disclosure the fact that he is speaking about Bermuda's opposition leader and December is the month of the island's election?
What is Larry's agenda? What is Larry's interest in the country he has left behind to reside in the USA?

pre 2007 information:
Mr. Vindictive himself returns to the Bermuda police service. To those who thought they could breath a sigh of relief, that Larry had departed, think again. If what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, prepare for the worst.
And what is he up to? Someone entrusted the narcotics section to him ... now there is one reason for me to be thankful I am no longer on the island. Incompetent and malicious ... he's all yours guys, watch your backs. For an indication of Larry's attitude to a successful unit see September 2001.
Larry, you are one of the lowest forms of life I had ever had the displeasure to encounter in Bermuda. Had it not been for the likes of you I suspect many of my comments about the service would be less harsh. That the Bermuda police allow someone like you to operate freely and be promoted is a perfect example of the quality of the 'service'.
I was not surprised my complaint
against you was not investigated. As a local, senior officer, who would believe
your word against mine? see the case of 'suspects
on' and the subsequent 'discipline' proceedings.
The moment your case looked shaky and your confidence was undermined, you resorted to overbearing behaviour; your uttered a threat. Either the defence of the officer was curtailed or I would be transferred. Larry, I do hope my actions spoke louder than your words - not only did we continue and the officer was found 'not guilty', your threat was brought to the attention of the presiding officer.
Your threat to have me transferred to the division you controlled because I had the audacity to stand up to you and defend a junior officer was never realised. Sadly, you were never disciplined for your behaviour.
The Bermuda police service is a poorer place for your presence. Those who serve under you have my sincere condolences.
