Yes, I agree that Mr. Andresol did a "pretty good job".

Was he given that position to do a "pretty good job" or to bring about some affective changes in the National Police force?

In the years that he was in power he could have done a lot more. We haitians need to stop settling for "pretty good" and start holding our elected officials accountable for their responsibilities.

Once they do that it will make it easier for someone to affectively fulfill their respected roles.
