Deputy Commissioner of Police, Clifford Blake, this morning testified at the West Kingston Commissioner of Enquiry that criminal gangs across the country had conspired to create mayhem in the country.
This ahead of the May 2010 security forces operation inside Tivoli Gardens.
DCP Blake was one of the ground commanders during the operation.
He says the gangsters intended to stretch the resources of the police.
DCP Blake testified that he heard so much gun fire in the build up to the operation, he thought he was watching a war movie.
