Here’s How Expunging The Records Of Murderers Will Impact You…

Delroy Chuck

The Jamaican Justice Minister told the Nation’s Parliament that he is asking the Parliament to amend laws to allow convicts who have abandoned criminality [for an extended period of time](sic) to have their records expunged.
In seeking to make his case, Chuck told Parliament of a man who was charged with murder, convicted of manslaughter, but turned his life around and has been preaching for the last 25 years.

Now I do get the need to clean up the backlog of cases on the court’s dockets, another issue Delroy Chuck spoke to in his address to the Parliament last Tuesday. What I find offensive is Chuck’s strategy, which is to toss cases which have been on the dockets for five(5) years or longer.
Even Murder cases.
I do understand that persons charged under the penal code have a constitutional right to a speedy trial. Notwithstanding, it is important to acknowledge that in some cases the reasons cases are delayed inordinately are based on (a)some suspects inability to pay their lawyers, (b) Deliberate stalling-tactics by defense lawyers, (c) defense witnesses cannot be found, etc.
In fairness, it is also true that for every reason those cases are delayed by the defense’s side, there is a prosecution delay as well.

Nevertheless, as I have pointed out in previous articles on this subject, allowing Chuck to attach an artificial timeline to the disposition of cases thereafter creating an excuse to toss cases and allowing violent criminals to walk free, spits in the faces of crime victims and does a grave injustice to the system of justice in our country.
It is antithetical to the rule of law and is by nature another accelerant to the culture of crime which has infected the country.
Simply put, this practice is an encouragement for criminals and their criminal/lawyers to usurp the system of justice even further without consequences.

In making his case, Delroy Chuck referenced a man who committed murder but got convicted on manslaughter. He argued that the man is now a Minister who wants his record expunged.
But the arguments he raised in support of expunging that murderer’s violent past, quote; “This pastor, however, cannot get his records expunged because the act does not currently allow for it, “and that is the sort of person we’d want to be expunged.
Seems to me this man is doing just fine. He has found God, he is a Minister, his victim is gone and has no second chance.
In what is a multi-pronged approach by the JLP Administration, Jamaicans not engaged in criminal conduct must be awake to these facts.

On the front end, the Administration has all but rendered the police ineffective based on its disrespect and regressive policies and postures.
In the middle, it is engaged in tossing cases that have been stalled in the system, sometimes through no fault of the state as I have shown above, while opening up a broad channel for more abuses of the right to adjournments all aimed at running out the clock by way of Chucks artificial five-year timeline.
And on the back end, despite the myriad difficulties in securing convictions for violent felons, they are actively creating the impression that these murders never happened by wiping clean the criminal records of violent murders, all on another Delroy Chuck created Timeline.

It is important that every Jamaican who cheer for this, do understand that I am not opposed to people with non-violent infractions having a fresh start. For example with the loosening of the marijuana laws, there is no reason that one could reasonably oppose someone who was arrested on a marijuana offense receiving a second chance.
However, violent offenses, up to, but not confined to, murder cannot simply be swept under the carpet as if they never occurred.


These are the kinds of half-ass measures which are designed by politicians to curry favor and secure votes.
They are bad policies which seem reasonable at face value. In a country like Jamaica which has such high tolerance for criminal conduct, these policies are bound to find favor.
The fact is that the Island’s political leaders do not care about the inordinately outrageous murder statistics as long as they hold onto state power and retain the ability to feed at the slop trough.
But to the Jamaican people who are not out killing, raping, shooting and stabbing others, these policies will have devastating consequences for them.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, or to say ‘I told you so.”Nevertheless, far too many of the things I warn about are happening in front of our eyes.
Law-abiding Jamaicans must be prepared for the following.
As soon as word gets out, (and get out it will), because we will continue to report on this, other countries, a-la the US Canada and the United Kingdom will pull up the welcome mat.
These countries are purging themselves of people for minor drug infractions and illegal entry.
I am dead certain they will not be looking to import convicted murderers from Jamaica who has had their criminal records expunged politically.
Every potential employer has a right to know the history of a potential employee.
Every person who works in a company deserves to know that his or her co-workers are not murderers who have had the past cleaned up by corrupt politicians.
Every family with children has a right to know that the person who moved in next door is a sex offender. When Delroy Chuck, a criminal enhancement tool, pushes those policies, he is endangering your children.
Why would we create policies which further puts innocent children in harms way?
The Delroy Chuck JLP plan takes away all of those (right-to-know) from every decent law abiding Jamaican.
One of the reasons that the United States, for example, have declared some nation states, failed states, is exactly because their governments cannot be trusted to account for their citizen’s past behavior. I wonder how these western powers will react to Jamaica wiping away murder and other violent felony convictions?
If these nations cannot determine the history of Jamaican citizens will they really trust that man or woman, those visa applicants, aren’t sanitized, murderers?
You decide!!!


Blinkered Political Allegiances Blinds To The Dangers Crime Poses….

Yesterday I wrote about the failure of the Jamaican Prime Minister mister Andrew Holness on the issue of crime.
In the article, I went to great pains to outline that (a) I supported Holness’ candidacy and (b) gave the Prime Minister credit for his handling of the economy thus far.
I did not make mention of the Infrastructure developments being carried out across the Island, as [some] of those projects were in the pipeline before he took office and speaking to those would mean I would have to spend valuable time giving credit to the previous administration on an issue I believe cancels itself out politically.
I did not feel I was compelled to say I supported Holness’ candidacy, but I felt that in the interest of fairness I had to give credit to the Prime Minister were and if credit was warranted.
I nevertheless credited the PM for the good that was obvious from my vantage point while speaking to the bad from the same perch.
Having done so, I hoped that the quality of the discourse on the important topic of the nations crime epidemic would have been elevated over and above the traditional parochial (kas-kas).

I hoped that since we pride ourselves in our ability to critical-think, we would be able to begin a substantive conversation on this most pressing issue with a view to at least recognizing that the path we are presently on will not solve the present dilemma.
Unfortunately, it seems to me that the balkanization of our politics after 1962 to the present day has moved from imaginary geographical lines of demarcation to mental and psychological lines.
The hardening of our political views has become a hindrance to our growth and development. It has so infested our psyches, that even though we are no longer murdering our brothers of another political persuasion, we are unable to engage in substantive reasoning because of the confining walls of political allegiances.

When the response by Labourites to the crime epidemic is ‘crime did not begin three years ago( alluding to when Holness took office), you can no longer claim credibility on the topic, as you have demonstrated that you are unable to see through your political blinkers.
That kind of thinking allows for the next party to make the same arguments when it becomes their turn to lead once again.
Putting this existential issue on the table does not mean solving it today. Crime did not become an issue in Jamaica at the time Holness took office.
What the nation voted for was a different approach and that is not happening. So the bird-brained idea that pointing out where we are going wrong is somehow political, exposes the level of individual ignorance in that perception, and the degree to which the corrosive influence of politics has clouded our ability to think.

Over the years I have presented a raft of proposals which are to be found on this very medium. The fact that Jamaican authorities, of both political parties, have failed to adopt tried-and-proven methods, opting instead for crime-fighting techniques developed by baby doctors and police haters is their own fault.
The fact that successive administrations of both political parties lack the testicular fortitude to exact the pound of flesh necessary from criminals, thereby sending a clear and unequivocal message that their actions will not be tolerated is not my fault.
The idea that a call to arms ends up becoming an inquisition into my personal bona fides tells the damning truths that maybe many of us are not as remotely smart as we would like to portray.
When we fail to see the killing of babies, and little girls as a bridge too far, we are by default giving license to the killers to push the envelope even further.
When we quibble and squabble among ourselves about who started what and who presided over what, we basically give criminals the room they need to continue the mayhem they sow in our societies.
My characterization of the Jamaican PM yesterday has not changed today. Our country needs leadership on crime. Leadership that mobilizes and galvanizes the people into a common cause. A cause which is greater than themselves. A cause which educates them on the way crime reduces their quality of life until it eventually takes it away from them.
We need leadership which empowers its police to go get the criminals, while ensuring that those officers who overstep their authority are held to the strictest standards of accountability.
Then and only then will we begin to see a reduction, not just in the statistical number of violent and other crimes but in the brazenness and the proclivity to commit those crimes.
It is difficult to get Jamaicans to mobilize against a monster so large and entrenched. Our country is inherently corrupt, most detractors of tough anti-crime measures are direct beneficiaries of criminal conduct.
It is to those same people/voters that the two political parties pander. It is that which informs the decisions on this epidemic.
Harriet Tubman famously said quote” I freed a thousand slaves, and I could have freed a thousand more, if only they knew they were slaves“.

Andrew Holness Is A Lightweight And An Abysmal Failure On Crime, Like The PNP Leaders Before Him…

PM Andrew Holness

There is a large number of merciless killers walking around on the streets of Jamaica. For all intents and purposes, they are no longer worried about the police.
Technically speaking, this Administration has all but neutered the police. In one of the most shameful and disrespectful displays ever, as it relates to a Governing body and one of its Agencies, this administration all but made it clear it did not like the police.
I sincerely doubt whether that level of disrespect could fly anywhere in the world except Jamaica, without a shutdown of the country and a massive exodus from the service.
Unfortunately, before the Prime Minister and his cabal decided to be outright disdainful of the police, through their words and deeds, a-la (glorified security guards) they knew full well that the police would do nothing, no matter the disrespect meted out to them.

The nation’s police service is the institution which has the responsibility to enforce the laws. The Military is for war. The idea that members of the Military are disciplined and therefore better suited to do policing is the epitome’ of ignorance.
And so it follows therefore that the very rationale for the Militarization of the public service is an endeavor built on a farcical premise.
The notion that somehow, Jamaica’s military is more disciplined than the cops plainly chooses to ignore a few really important facts.
(1) Soldiers (previously) had far fewer interactions with members of the public as police officers do.
(2) Disciplinary issues between the members of the Military are handled internally.
(3) There are (4) four times as many cops as there are soldiers, so complaints against the police are going to be exponentially higher based on those numbers alone.
(4) Most soldiers live(d) in underserved communities with the criminals, and are not seen as a threat to their activities.
(5) Many soldiers are actively engaged in the criminal conduct that civilian criminals are engaged in.
(6) Police officers previously were reluctant to arrest members of the JDF even when they were caught breaking the laws.
(7) Even when caught, they were generally turned over to the JDF and things are kept under wraps.
(8) Jamaica is a lawless country deemed to be 84% corrupt, cops are not ever going to be popular in a country with that degree of corruption.
(9) Taken wholly, with other characteristics, it is understandable that they would have more street creds than the cops.

But the issue is not really about street cred, who is more respected or even who is feared. This is about how the Holness Administration has summarily decided to militarize the Island’s public services and openly humiliating and disrespecting career police officers.
This has drawn strong condemnation from certain sections of the political opposition. One overzealous person likened the Prime Minister to Adolph Hitler, a characterization I am sure she regrets, but probably lacks the character and humility to withdraw, and issue a full-throated apology.
Some people are harshly critical of my views on this subject of the Prime, even though my views on the Jamaican Prime Minister are far less caustic than those of Crystal Tomlinson of the PNPYO.
Not all of the criticisms of me as it relates to the Prime Minister come from partisan Laborites. So it would be foolish of me to simply brush aside those concerns and criticisms without addressing them head-on.
The Pm is doing a pretty good job on the economy, not so good on the corruption front.
That does not mean that he himself is involved in malfeasance. Nevertheless, he promised in his inauguration speech, that there would be zero tolerance for corruption in his administration. His promises have not kept pace with reality.
As someone who supported his candidacy, no one is more disappointed at the approach Andrew Holness brought to the Prime Minister’s office on the issue of crime.
Holness’ tone and tenor toward the police and the rule of law have been dismissive and downright disrespectful. His world-view could only have been shaped at the nation’s largest Institution of higher learning, a smoldering cauldron of socialist antipathy toward Conservative values and the rule of law.
So even though Andrew Holness now heads the party of the late greats, Sir Alexander Bustamante’, Sir Donald Burns Sangster, the Honorable Hugh Lawson Shearer, and even Edward Phillip George Seaga, He is a [carbon cut-out of Bruce Golding], rather than a continuation of the Labor Party greats on the rule of law.
Andrew Holness has some ideas of the Labor Party’s past Conservative values, the last of which was evident under Edward Seaga, but he lacks the fundamental understanding of what it takes to fully activate those values for the betterment of the country and a lasting period of prosperity for the Jamaican people.

Simply put, when it comes to dealing with crime, Andrew Holness is a lightweight and an abysmal failure like the PNP Prime Ministers before who walked the very same corridors the late (Wilmott Perkins labeled the Intellectual ghetto).
” We will all soon be dead, unless someone finally ensures that those who kill buck upon something that says no more” a local School Principal laments the death of one of his students, killed and dumped in bushes like a piece of garbage.
Instead of fighting the murderers in Jamaica Holness has decided he wants to fight the police.
He started off by spreading the narrative that if we want to fix crime we must first fix the police.
Then they empower antagonist INDECOM’s boss the hyper-partisan Terrence Williams to persecute. This started a both-ends leak in the JCF. (1) they can no longer meet recruitment targets, and (2) people are racing to the exits to find greener pastures in the CARICOM region and beyond.
There is not much they can do to force people into the JCF but they have darn sure tried to stop them from leaving by creating new unconstitutional policies which criminalize cops who leave without giving (6) months advance notice that they intend to leave.
Not only are the better people not willing to stick around for the nonsense, but they are also now attracting candidates who are criminals.
So the idea of fixing the force becomes an abstraction and so they can blame the crime epidemic on the police. Checkmate …. right?

None of this was necessary, what was required was a respectful approach, beginning with paying the officers a living wage. Creating retentive strategies which incentivize education, valor, service, honest and productivity.
By creating a merit-based system which rewards good work and the right attitude you begin the process of weeding out the deadwood. Right away you plug the attrition dike on the back end, while on the front end having to hold the gate from assault as the best qualified, most suitable candidates would be beating down the doors to enter.
The approach taken by this administration has increased the challenges to the police, created more lawlessness and ultimately increased crime.
No amount of SOE’s and ZOSO’s can cure this for the government.
This wrong-headed approach influenced by Jamaicans for Justice (JFJ) and the long line of anti-police hate groups roaming around on the Island, [some paid with taxpayers funds] will continue to increase murders and other violent crimes.
The criminal underworld is watching and they are loving what is happening, the police no longer present a credible threat to their operations.
The Government may just come out and say it supports the criminals because whether it knows it or not it does.

How The JCF Could Learn To Do More With Less

The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) has long lamented the shortage or absence of resources to get the job done effectively.


Police Station ,Constant Spring:

Recently the Force announced it was operating with 50% of the resources it needs to get the job done. Having served in the JCF I understand the seriousness of not having even the most basic resource to do the job.
On the other hand, I was also a witness to the JCF’s lack of management, which resulted in exceptional waste and duplication of efforts, further complicating the resource issue.
These waste generally are clear, first in the quality of a portion of the Force, there have always been too many officers who should find alternative employment. This is attributable to their laziness, lack of focus, lack of integrity, lack of love for the job, lack of commitment to the cause. There are legitimate arguments to be made for a lack of commitment. I would simply argue that though those arguments are legitimate, they are not reason enough to be a slacker. Those opposed to working for the wages, or are offended by other situations are free to leave.
Then there is the treatment of the vehicles, which generally are not suited to Jamaica’s terrain, no fault of the Police and secondly the round the clock operation of the vehicles, again this is not something that should reasonably be pinned on the department, it is attributable to the shortage.

The way patrols are done is ineffective and counter-productive even. This needs a complete reassessment. On the general issue of waste, the same arguments may be made about many businesses and agencies in Jamaica and other countries. Jamaica simply cannot afford it. When both sides of the resource issue are considered, the truth lies somewhere in between the two sides, with a leaning toward not nearly enough of anything to do the job. With that said the true test of any manager or management company, is to do the best job possible with limited resources.

In the American civil war between North and  South, Union General, Westmoreland complained to President Abraham Lincoln about not having enough Troops to attack the Confederate South, Lincoln replaced Westmoreland with General Ulysses S  Grant. We all know that Grant won the war saving and cementing the Union and the United States as we know it today. My point is that Jamaica is a poor developing country, many people will challenge me even on the notion of Jamaica being a developing country. There will never be enough resource to go around. Neither political party is particularly fond of the rule of law, in fact, some of the people at the highest level of Government/Opposition are criminals, or at a bare minimum, maintain criminal contact. They do not want a professional competent and independent police department.

Late 1987 I was temporally transferred to Constant Spring along with three other men, Allen Gauntlet, Keith Skully and O Marston otherwise called (Fat-Ball), Marston was somewhat portly, hence the moniker. None of us was full transferred in Force Orders from The Mobile Reserve where we were officially stationed, we were simply sent to fill the vacuüm which was left from the transfer of then Detective Sargent Cornwall (bigga) Ford, a legend, who had just been transferred to the Flying Squad, based at the Kingston Central Police compound.

For the record, never let anyone tell you that name brand-cops do nothing to bend the crime curve south. Determined criminals have escalated crime, determined cops bend the curve south. 

Throughout our country’s history, there have been notoriously dangerous criminals, these men have largely gained their notoriety, through different means, brutality, callousness, aided and abetted by sympathetic members of the public, Politics, corrupt-cops, the terrain of our country, and other means. Conversely we have produced determined cops who knew how to remove criminals from the streets, Cops like Keith (trinity) Gardener, Joe Williams, Anthony Hewitt, Altimoth (parra) Campbell, Isiah Laing, are some of the more recognizable names, of course there are men, and yes Women, Like Hortense Brown, who in many cases were just as effective, Dick Hibbert, Ruddy Dwyer, Benjamin, O C Hare, and a long line of valiant soldiers of urban policing who understood our country’s terrorists and how to deal with them.

The men and women whom I did not mention need not doubt their contribution to our country’s stability, you know yourselves, the point was about the most celebrated, the most well known. I never wore , neither did I ever see a bullet-proof vest during my decade of service from 1982 to 1992, we did not have computers, we did not even have type-writers, at the Constant Spring CIB which serves some of the most depressed communities and some of the most upscale, we did not have a typewriter. I suggested to detective Sergeant McInnis that we use colored pins and a map of our geographical responsibility to assist us. Different color pins represented different types of crimes. Red for murder, blue for rapes, green for break-ins, yellow for shootings and so on. This very simple, unsophisticated method, allowed us to see, in real terms, what type of crimes were being committed where. Complainants supplied us with the when, it made it easier for us to find the who. I sought and gained permission to approach interested parties operating in our precinct, and asked for old discarded type-writers. Business-people were more than happy to give us usable type-writers and desks, this made the demand from the khaki-clad clowns for a torrent of paper-work more possible. At the time I was at the CIB office, they demanded 5 copies of all crimes committed in the Parish of St. Thomas, St. Catherine and St. Andrew North, which constituted Police Area 5.

It generally took hours to record the crimes from St Catherine, a single detective working the office on any given night would start writing as soon as he entered the office at 8: pm sometimes he would still be writing at 9: am when the morning shift arrived and sometimes, long after. All of those crimes in detail had to be recorded by hand and duplicated 5 times. I came up with the novel idea of carbon paper, they put the brakes on that complaining that carbon created smudges, which rendered the document illegible, so it was back to writing and writing and writing. One copy for the Commissioner’s Office, one for the Divisional Officer, one for the Area Officer, one for the crime chief. one for the Divisional Detective Inspector. A colossal waste of paper and manpower to largely satisfy the egos of lazy pompous overweight dead-woods.

My point in all of this is this. The Commissioner will never have all the resources he needs, what he does have is the infinite resource called the brain. Commissioner Ellington must develop strategies in conjunction with capable officers at his disposal, to stop the scourge of crime. That will not get done with most of the khaki-clad crew he has, most should be retired to save tax-payers money. Pushing paper, or sitting behind a desk is not policing. Most of these people, some I served with, are more concerned with the way a piece of fools-cap paper is folded, so they may write nonsense on it, than how to remove criminals from the streets. In fact, many of them never arrested anyone, never been to court, but they are career cops, and don’t ever let them hear an explosion, Usain Bolt would have to seriously struggle to keep his world record. No wonder the country is inundated with crime, the khaki-clad clowns are more corrupt, more corroded by politics than the young men. Money is the only thing which flows upstream.I would be happy to supply the Commissioner with a detailed plan, outlining how to reduce crime by 20 to 30% in the first year.  By the time the second year comes around, crime will begin to take a serious trend downwards.

The Full Truth Out, Now What For The Police-hating Trolls?

In no other country would the right of anyone supersede the rights of innocent minor children.
Except in Jamaica where a Rastafarian wannabe star’s lies, and assaults the police, destroys public property yet his position is supported by many in the public sphere.
In this cesspool of anti-police malignancy, despite the credible statements of the children’s aunt, the police hating trolls still berate the police for doing exactly what they are sworn to do.

Sean McDonald

The incident which occurred recently in which the aunt of two little boys asked the Gordon Town Police to accompany her to a residence to remove two boys she believed were not being taken care of, have once again highlighted some old fissures within the Jamaican society.
According to local reporting, Melesha Welsh aunt of the two boys and sister-in-law of Rastafarian Sean McDonald,  who goes by the moniker (JahDore) asked the police to accompany her to the house to attend and investigate reports the children were not being well cared for.
In synopsis, the children were removed from the residence by Ms. Welsh and taken to the Gordon Town Police station upon which Sean McDonald showed up and all hell broke out.

“I regret nothing. The kids are not Rastafarian, and they are not even his (biological) kids. I trimmed them, and fed them, not the police. This is a big publicity stunt by JahDore, my father is a rasta, I respect their traditions, I would not violate that. I made the complaint to the police because I love my nephews and they have not been going to school since October last year, and now is May, and it couldn’t continue, I don’t want them to grow up dunce and can’t contribute to society.”  Ms. Welsh told a local reporter.

It was a simple matter and we all were at the police station to discuss it when I saw JahDore kick the officer in his belly and the officer grabbed his foot and thump him in the face. When I saw Jahdore dip to his waist, I grabbed the children and ran out of the police station because I feared what would happen next. While outside, I saw a barber across the road. The kids had a fungus in their head, especially the younger one, so I took the opportunity to do it, I had to beg the barber to trim him,” said Welsh, who is the sister of JahDore’s spouse, Semela. According to Loopnews.


Since the incident occurred, every Tom, Harry, and police-hating Dick have crawled out of the woodwork to seek relevance by piling on the police for doing exactly what they are sworn to do.
If for instance, Ms. Welsh had gone to the Gordon Town Police and asked for help to secure the wellbeing of two minor children she believed to be in danger, and the police failed to assist her and harm came to the children, what would be the position of the anti-police village lawyers?
Literally every day, minor children face grave danger in Jamaica at the hands of relatives and others, who are supposed to give care and security to them. That fact is separate from the stark reality of the nation’s atrocious crime epidemic, which places innocent children smackdab in the crosshairs of the human vultures who prey on the defenseless.


The stepfather of the children a wannabe star is considered among the never-ending list of untouchables in the country which prides itself on its high crime statistics.
This low-life actually went to the police station and assaulted a police officer.
There is an old Jamaican saying (ashes cold dawg sleep in de).
From the mouth of the credible witness and aunt to the alleged abused children Ms. Welsh, quote” It was a simple matter and we all were at the police station to discuss it when I saw JahDore kick the officer in his belly.”
This police force has certainly gone soft and has become a pussy. I make no apology for making this observation. This illiterate fool should not be heading to the Half-Way-Tree courthouse this morning, he should be lying somewhere chilling.
This is the kind of atmosphere that the PNP and JLP have created in Jamaica. Not just in the sense that a law-breaker would attack and try to harm a police officer, that comes with the territory.
Nevertheless, the general across the board disrespect for the rule of law, from the lack of understanding that the police is duty bound to protect minors, to the condemnation and lies by the village lawyers in the society and the physical attack on the police officers in the station house is a searing indictment on the state of affairs in the country.


In most countries, securing the interest of children who may be in danger one way or the other, is of paramount interest.
This is true not just of all state agencies, but it is an unwritten understanding among the general population that we look after our most vulnerable.
The shocking reality is that counterintuitively, in JAMAICA, the greatest concern to the people who are supposed to care most about these very vulnerable children is for a fucking Rastafarian who was allegedly not taking care of the children in his care, and psychically attacked police officers.
God forbid that the hair of the children be cut and they are fed a meal.
Because for this country, having dirty dreadlocks with fungus in their head is far more important than personal hygiene and a good meal.
It is a sick and nonsensical Orwellian mentality which makes the wrong right, and right wrong which is feeding this massive murder rate on this once lovely Island.
It is a place where Convicted dope dealers are celebrated and given God-like reverence, where murdering scumbag community thugs are elevated and referred to as “DONS’.
A place where Rastafarians who with their colleagues destroyed personal property and murdered responding police officers are given apologies and tax-payers money to boot.
It is a country in which an entire community thumbed its collective nose at the rule of law for decades, opting instead for the leadership of a common murderer. When the security forces finally annexed that community to the country, those who survived were compensated for their decades-long support and indulgence in illegal activities against the country.
This is what JAMAICA has become……

Black Woman Yells “I’m Pregnant” Before Cop Shoots Her 5 Times

In what can only be seen as the most shocking and reckless disregard for human life, a Texas race-soldier otherwise called a (cop), murdered a supposedly pregnant African-American woman.
I have seen a lot of video recordings of unnecessary and uncalled for police use of deadly force in America, including the killing of Eric Garner, Walter Scott, Tamir Rice, on and on and on…..
None has been more graphic than this incident in which this female was murdered by a cowardly punk of a cop.
Here is the story as reported by (BlackPressUSA).

Pamela Turner, 44, was shot dead by a Baytown, Texas, police officer Monday night, May 13, 2019. Turner is described as having a history of mental illness and may have been pregnant at the time of her death.

Pamela Turner, 44, was shot dead by a Baytown, Texas, police officer Monday night, May 13, 2019. Turner is described as having a history of mental illness and may have been pregnant at the time of her death.

By Mo Barnes,

Once again, a shocking police shooting caught on video is causing outrage. Pamela Turner, 44, was shot dead by a Baytown, Texas, police officer Monday night, May 13, 2019. Turner is described as having a history of mental illness and may have been pregnant at the time of her death. Turner was walking around The Brixton Apartments around 10:40 p.m., according to local media outlet KPRC 2 News. That is when an unidentified Baytown officer recognized her from prior encounters. According to a Baytown Police department spokesperson, Turner had outstanding warrants for her arrest. The warrants were for two charges of criminal mischief and another for assault resulting in bodily injury. The officer attempted to detain her, and a struggle ensued. According to a neighbor of Turner’s, she had complained about being harassed by this officer in the past.

“During the course of the attempted arrest, the female began struggling with the officer, which forced the officer to deploy his Taser,” Baytown Police Lt. Steve Dorris said in a statement to the media. “That deployment was not effective, and the female was able to get the officer’s Taser away from him. (She) actually tased the officer, which forced the officer to draw his duty weapon and fire multiple rounds at the suspect.”The encounter was captured by an unknown bystander and later uploaded to social media. In the video, Turner is seen protesting and resisting the officer. The officer does, in fact, uses his Taser, and she is heard to yell “I’m pregnant” as she continues to struggle. A few moments later, the officer draws his service weapon and fires five shots at a prone Turner. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Residents told KPRC 2 that Turner was a resident of the apartment complex and frequently walked late at night to smoke cigarettes or walk her dogs. Turner’s sister, Antoinette, stated that she was a mother of two adult children and a grandmother to three.At this time, the officer who shot Turner has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation into the shooting. The police are also trying to locate the personwho filmed the shooting and uploaded the content to social media. Police will not confirm if Turner was pregnant until an autopsy is completed.

Black Women Adopting A Dangerous Posture That Is Antithetical To The Family…

Yesterday the entire Western world was in a frenzied Tizzy, it was mothers day. Sure mothers deserve all of the accolades they can get, after all, us men have no idea what it feels like to have another human being growing inside us for the better part of nine months and sometimes beyond.
Of course, Father’s day is not too far off, it is usually celebrated on the third Sunday of June in America.
Fathers need not anticipate much, in general, there is fathers day designation just for the sake of parity.
To the people who had loving caring moms and mommy figures, it is a wonderful feeling to just lay and put your head in her lap and just feel the troubles of the world dissolve away for a while.
Me, I did not have a mother in my life but I sure had a mother figure in the form of my great aunt who was better than a lot of real moms, including mine of course.
And so as we reflect on the day that the western world has set aside to recognize mothers, I cannot help but make a few observations.

Oprah Winfrey’s school for girls, is supposed to address gender inequality but it is a school only for girls.

Why is there a need to have a war between the genders? I mean it may be neanderthal of me to suggest that God created the sexes with roles which are clearly defined right? No one is denying that if the mother dies or is otherwise out of the picture the father cannot fill both roles to the best of his abilities? Nevertheless, he can be the best father he can be, and he can fill the role of a mother as well, but he cannot be a mother. So too is it true when fathers are absent from the equation, mothers are pressed into double duty. And regardless of the heroic work mothers do, they cannot be fathers, so could we please put that theory to rest.
The constant feminist battering of the drums of separation between the sexes does nothing to engender loving relationships in our homes and communities. When we create those divisions we are by default tearing down our societies.

The idea that love is best encapsulated in a feminine wrapper, manifested in the wiping of snooty drool and changing diapers over the masculine go-getter who risks life and limb to provide for his family is the most absurd and simplistic interpretation of love.

Inherent in that contradiction, is man’s refusal to stand up and defend the male gender choosing instead to go along to get along.
And so we find that even those who profess to care about gender inequality are the biggest hypocrites when it comes to their actions on gender issues.
Everywhere you turn these days in the black community there is no shortage of bitter-butch self-proclaimed life coaches offering to give advice on how to live without men(for a fee of course).

This subject is far deeper than the obvious war of the sexes
The scriptures say; for we wrestle not with flesh and blood, but with principalities and powers and spiritual wickedness in high places. The power of darkness, (Satan) has convinced humans that Gods ways are silly, remember God placed the man over the household to lead in love and with discipline.
So the western world elevates and places women in charge and places a counter-culture upon us which is designed to further the cause of homosexuality /Lesbianism while degrading the family structure designed by God.
At the forefront of this toxic gender war, there seem to be black women acting as vanguards. ‘We don’t need no man, we can do for ourselves“.
The sad reality is that black women are forced to do for themselves as a result of (a)powerful forces bigger than themselves,(b) their own poor decision making.
The systemic breaking up of the black family from slavery, through chattel like treatment of our people, a-la selling members of one family to far off estates, rapes, and sodomy, etc.
Also the re-enslavement of black males in the period called reconstruction, the systemic re-enslavement of black males by way of laws and ordinances which strategically targets them, the prison industrial complex today and laws which make it impossible for black men to get their lives together after the system has criminalized them.
These are only a few of the issues which have made it difficult for black men to be in their children’s lives in America.
In all of that, black women have to own their own personal failings when it comes to their choices of mates.
The birds require certain standards from the males of their species before mating, what say you?

That black women would be blind to this, or even subscribe to this theory is remarkable, considering that every study shows that where there are no fathers in the home children do poorly and are at greater risk of failing in life and ending up in prison.
That is checkmate for the white power structure.
White women may be having children out of wedlock to some degree, as other ethnic groups are, but their choices are hardly the result of any deep anti-male resentment. They want children, they may just not be ready to commit to marriage, but you best believe that their children have fathers in their lives.
If you can remove the black male, render him inconsequential to his woman, the battle to degrade the race is all but over.

This Article could very well be the prologue to a book. I feel strongly enough about this subject that I could literally produce a book on this subject.
Nevertheless, I will be mindful that my readers may not be interested in an elongated essay on this topic in this particular forum, so self-control is in order.

Rashida Tlaib Recognizes Trump Must Be Held To Account By Beginning The Impeachment Process

The Michigan representative just accepted petitions signed by 10 million Americans who say it is time to act.

By John Nichols

Rashida Tlaib calls for impeachment

“Can we please start the impeachment process now?” Rashida Tlaib asked a month before she was sworn in as the representative from Michigan’s 13th congressional district. It was the right question at the right time—a moment in December when President Trump was casually announcing: “I will shut down the government.” And Tlaib was the right person to ask it: a lawyer with a firm grasp of the Constitution and deep regard for the oath she was about to swear to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic” and to “bear true faith and allegiance to the same.”

Yet, Tlaib got only a little notice when she spoke up in December. She got more attention in January when, after being sworn in, she employed some salty language in an enthusiastic declaration. of her determination to hold the president to account. Trump labeled her “disgraceful” and “highly disrespectful to the United States of America.” But Tlaib was undeterred. She consulted with experts on the system of checks and balances and advanced a proposal rooted in a savvy recognition of the fact that impeachment is a process.
Now, as political and media figures who once eschewed discussions of the “I” word are suddenly talking about nothing else, it is time to recognize the wisdom of Tlaib’s proposal.

Trump is rejecting the system of checks and balances. He is abusing his executive authority in an effort to thwart congressional review of the full Mueller report, and his attorney general has refused to cooperate with the House Judiciary Committee.  The Democratic majority on the committee has taken necessary and appropriate action, voting last Wednesday to recommend that the full House hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt of Congress for refusing to share the unredacted report from special counsel Robert Mueller III with the committee. Yet, Barr is still refusing to cooperate. And what of Trump? Committee chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) says, “the President is disobeying the law, is refusing all information to Congress.” “The phrase constitutional crisis has been overused…” says Nadler, “but, certainly, it’s a constitutional crisis, although I don’t like to use that phrase because it’s been used for far less dangerous situations.”

This is a dangerous situation and its should be addressed with the response that the founders of the American experiment identified. “If we do not engage in the impeachment process, we set a dangerous precedent for all future presidents—that they can defy the law and trample on our constitution, taking us on the road to autocracy,” saysFree Speech for People’s John Bonifaz, a lawyer who has working with Tlaib on accountability issues.
The key word is “process.”
Before formal articles of impeachment are written and voted on by the House, information must be gathered, hearings must be held, efforts must be made to provide the American people with a full sense of why accountability is necessary, and outreach must be made to those constitutionally-inclined Republicans who might recognize the danger of allowing a president—even a president with an “R” after his name—to dismiss checks and balances and disregard the rule of law. This process of applying the cure for a constitutional crisis, as established by the founders of the American experiment, moves the discussion of accountability toward concrete reality.Tlaib is proposing to begin the process with legislation resolving that:

(1) the Committee on the Judiciary shall inquire whether the House of Representatives should impeach Donald John Trump, President of the United States of America;

(2) the Committee on the Judiciary or any subcommittee or task force designated by the Committee may, in connection with the inquiry under this resolution, take affidavits and depositions by a member, counsel, or consultant of the Committee, pursuant to notice or subpoena; and

(3) there shall be paid out of the applicable accounts of the House of Representatives such sums as may be necessary to assist the Committee on the Judiciary in conducting the inquiry under this resolution, any of which may be used for the procurement of staff or consultant services.

Tlaib’s proposal is on point. Her resolution does not outline specific articles of impeachment. It simply signals that the time has come to begin the necessary process. It is this process that will identify the offenses that might form the basis for articles the Judiciary Committee and the House could consider.While many in Congress remain cautious, the American people understand the wisdom of Tlaib’s proposal. Last week, she and Congressman Al Green, the Texas Democrat who has been a stalwart champion of presidential accountability, accepted a flash drive containing 10 million signatures on digital petitions calling for an impeachment inquiry. MoveOn, CREDO Mobile, Need to Impeach, Women’s March, By the People,, Democracy for America, and Free Speech for People have supported the call, which will be amplified this week by activists in DC and nationwide. “Ten million people said that we need to hold this president accountable. I think that speaks volumes,” says Rashida Tlaib. “Ten million people want us to uphold the United States Constitution.”

ohn Nichols wrote the foreword for the book The Constitution Demands It: The Case for the Impeachment of Donald Trump (Melville House) by Ron Fein, John Bonifaz, and Ben Clements.

This Government Cannot Punt Crime To (PNP), It Owns This Epidemic …..

Peter Bunting , No credibility on crime. Once said crime demanded divine .intervention

The PNP was pathetic on crime, former minister of National Security Peter Bunting in exasperation and totally clueless, infamously stated, that the Island’s crime situation needed divine intervention.
That comment was not only stupid, it demonstrated that they were out of their league.
Nevertheless, the Andrew Holness Administration has been in office for three years.
He and his Government owns this mess, there can no longer be the narrative that they inherited this. Regardless of what the JLP inherited, it is in Government. It was elected to fix the problem, this is not the Opposition party’s problem, it is the Administration’s problem, and it is going the opposite direction of where it needs to be.

One can easily understand the condemnation which came down on the head of Ackaisha Green who was inside the ATM at Central Police Station on East Queen Street in downtown Kingston when she found a bag filled with money and turned it over to the police.
After all, even financially well to do people could hardly be expected to do what Ackaisha did.
According to reports the young mother had every reason to take the money, being of very modest means herself, but she chose to do the right thing.
The most difficult thing for Ms. Green must have come from her own mother who berated her for returning the millions having earlier asked her for $200.
Thankfully a flood of pledges of support has been coming in for Ms. Green both locally and overseas.
There is still something to celebrate in Jamaica, even more, consequential in my opinion, the honest 24-year-old is from the rugged inner city and not from uptown. Read the story here;

In the Book of Matthew Chapter 13 vs 1-9 Jesus narrated the parable of the sower who went out to sow seeds. According to the story  “A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants. Still other seed fell on good soil, where it produced a crop—a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown. Whoever has ears, let them hear.”

I always marveled at the alacrity and effectiveness with which Jamaica’s teachers picked up the pace after independence, effectively doing a terrific job of educating the Island’s children making our people who wanted to learn, second to none across the globe.
Accordingly, we have excelled in the areas of Athletics and culture, even though it could be argued that culturally we are on the wane.
In all of the good things which we have accomplished, we have made some horrible mistakes even as we claim to make them for the good of the nation.
It is stunning that we continue to place the cart before the horse. Even when people with the power of perception say, “hey you got it all wrong’, collectively, rather than turn the thing around we double down on stupid.

I always marveled at the sower in Matthew 13, why didn’t he wait until he found good soil? Why did he flail away hoping for the best with the precious seeds he had? Could it be that he too did not understand that in order to reap a harvest, certain things had to be done right, beginning with finding good fertile soil on which to scatter his seeds?
As the sower carelessly scattered the precious seeds, so too have Jamaica’s political leaders squandered scarce resources supposedly in the quest to end violent crimes across the nation.
Whether it be (SOE’s) State Of Emergency, (ZOSO) Zones Of Special Operations, the Creation of (INDECOM) The Supposed Independent Commission Of Investigations, (OPD) Office Of Public Defender, and the long litany of other catchy Acronym’s we have become so enamored with, the cart has been counterintuitively placed before the horse.

As we have seen in the parable, the sower wasted precious resources by not following any meaningful process. So too has Jamaica decide to demolish the police department’s ability to effectively deal with the terror threat on the Island.
Before you sow seeds the land must be cleared, plowed, fertilized and watered. After that, the seeds should be covered, because make no mistake about it, the birds will eat the seeds if they are left uncovered, regardless of where they are sown.
Only then can there be a reasonable expectation of a good harvest commensurate with the investment.
Both the past PNP and present JLP administration have in some case unwittingly, and in other cases arbitrarily, gone about dealing with the nations crime problem as the sower did.
They did so carelessly, naively and in the case of the Andrew Holness Administration, maliciously, recklessly and surreptitiously gone after the police department under the guise of creating a new police force.
Without doubt, this half-ass strategy has emboldened criminals to step up their activities with the full knowledge that the Government will not tolerate the police going after the nations killers.

Horace Chang

The strategy of using ZOSO’s and SOE’s are half-ass strategies designed to flood communities with the bodies of security forces personnel, creating a faux-peace with the sole intent of using whatever benefits are derived from it as political fodder.
ZOSO’s and SOE’s do nothing to stop the killings in general, they do nothing to lower crime across the board. At best they are unsustainable geographical band-aid which lessen the massive bleeding in that Geographical area temporarily, while increasing it in other areas.
How can a Prime Minister tell law enforcement officers that the days of kicking in doors are over? That kind of rhetoric is a governmental license to criminals to rest assured they are protected.
Yet, that has been Andrew Holness’ mantra and the criminals are watching in glee. The criminal underworld cheers their legal arm INDECOM, which works overtime for their protection.
In a shocking departure from past protocol, Andrew Holness has created in our country, a perception that a hard-nosed approach to enforcement is tantamount and similar to abuse of citizens rights.
It is ignorant, it is hyperbolic, and it is dangerous coming from that office.
Not only has Holness compromised the ability of the police to do their jobs, but he has also enhanced the ability of the mongrel attack dogs like Terrence Williams and Hamish Campbell to further frustrate the efforts of the police to do their jobs.
And now we are seeing that through that strategy criminals are more emboldened to attack and murder police officers.
This Government must take responsibility for this and there is no hiding from what they created.

Young Mobile Reserve Officer Murdered In Rollington Town…


Constable Allen

At about 12:15am Constable Toddmar Allen of the Mobile Reserve was shot and injured at a Bar in Rollington Town Saint Andrew. He was taken to The Kingston Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Constable Allen is reported to have driven to Ranny’s Bar in the community, went inside and ordered a drink. Whilst sitting down two (2) men armed with handguns entered the bar and ordered him not to move.

Shortly after, three explosions were heard.
Constable Allen reportedly ran to the Rollington Town Police Station where he fired one shot and collapsed at the gate. He was rushed to Hospital by the police, but was pronounced dead from gunshot wounds to the back and chest. His Glock pistol was retrieved by the police.


This young officer’s killing may be random or it may not be. There is no denying that the police have done tremendous harm to themselves by the activities they have involved themselves in.
Nevertheless, for the most part, these young men and women are innocent of any of the Force’s baggage.
They deserve the support of the citizenry and they damn sure deserve respect and support from the Government.
They stepped forward to serve when many their age are engaged in the destruction of the country. And for that alone I support them.
Unfortunately, the political infrastructure, comprising both political parties as well as some sections of civil society and the media, has done incalculable harm to not just the rule of law, but have set up these young people to die at the hands of the cowardly criminals in our country. Make no mistake about it, the disrespect and disdain showed the police by Prime Minister Andrew Holness and his lackey Horace Chang is contributing to this attack on our police officers.
No member of the PNP should take comfort in my statements, the PNP is equally complicit as the JLP in this consequential broadside against law enforcement in our country.

Candace Owens, the GOP darling for the moment, has officially resigned as communications director for Turning Point USA, the right-leaning organization aimed at educating college students about “free markets and limited government,” according to its website.
Owens announced her exit plans in a
 lengthy Instagram post on May 1, and her departure comes amid calls from supporters and members of the organization for her to step down following controversial comments she made in February about Adolf Hitler.

  • realcandaceowensI am both excited and sad to announce that I will be officially moving on from my role as Communications Director for Turning Point USA. 
    Charlie and I never could have predicted how big things would get since that day I was sprinting around a conference in Palm Beach trying to get anyone to give me a chance. 
    We couldn’t have predicted the Kanye tweet. We couldn’t have predicted our breakfast with Antifa. And we definitely couldn’t have predicted Ted Lieu. 
    And yet here we are. 
    Turning Point is an amazing organization that is fighting a cultural war on college campuses. Watching the way in which this organization has grown has been one of the greatest honors of my life. 
    We love our freedom-fighting students. We love our campus clashes. I have loved every single minute of traveling the country and learning the real spirit of this amazing nation. 
    But the sad truth is that the majority of black Americans don’t never make it to college. 
    My dream has always been simple— to wake up black America—To turn the lights on within a community that has been used and abused by the Democrat party for decades. 
    No one believed my dream was possible. Charlie always knew it was. 
    Can we move the black vote 20 point by 2020? That is my vision and I want to pour every single minute into making my dream a reality. 
    With the #BLEXIT movement, the Candace Owens podcast, and my upcoming book— I no longer feel I can be a dedicated communications director to an organization that is rightfully growing rapidly. 
    In many ways, today feels like a graduation! I have learned so much and want to thank all of our students, and especially Tyler Bowyer and Charlie Kirk for giving me this amazing platform and opportunity to do what I love most. 
    All that aside— I will of course still be speaking at all Turning Point conferences and will continue to chair the annual Black Leadership Summit in the fall. 
    So sign up people! 
    Fittingly—on this week’s episode of the Candace Owens Show, Charlie and I will take a trip down memory lane. Be sure to tune in! We couldn’t be more excited to share this conversation with the world. 

While speaking at a London event to launch a U.K. chapter of TPUSA, she argued that Hitler was an “OK” leader until he tried to take his message of genocide global. “If Hitler just wanted to make Germany great and have things run well, OK fine,” she saidin response to a question about nationalism. “The problem is he had dreams outside of Germany. He wanted to globalize … he wanted everyone to be German.”After that comment, several Turning Point campus chapters fired off a letter calling for her to resign, according to The Daily Beast.Turning Point USA is above this thoughtless and divisive rhetoric, and as Chapters, Presidents, and Leaders of Turning Point USA, we will no longer stand idly by as they continue,” they wrote in a statement. “We don’t believe Candace Owens to be the most effective representation for Turning Point USA, as Communications Director or otherwise. Meanwhile, in her farewell post on Instagram, Owens describes TPUSA as an “amazing” group that’s fighting a so-called “cultural war on college campuses.”She also notes both her excitement and sorrow over “officially moving on from my role as Communications Director for Turning Point USA.” In many ways, today feels like a graduation!” Owens added.

The FOX News contributor said she still plans to appear at future conferences for the conservative nonprofit organization and will continue to chair the annual Black LeadershipSummit. But her focus will now be on pushing her “Blexit” movement, a platform she uses to convince more Black voters to join the Republican party.“My dream has always been simple— to wake up black America—To turn the lights on within a community that has been used and abused by the Democrat party for decades,” she wrote in her Instagram post.

How White Evangelical Preachers Have Prostituted The Gospel In Support Of White Supremacy….

The Reverend Billy Graham has been an inspiration to many including Presidents and other heads of state

Many people old enough will recall how they felt having heard Evangelist Billy Graham preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
According to
Billy Graham preached the message of Christ’s freedom and forgiveness around the world, reaching over 200 million people in more than 185 countries. He leads hundreds of thousands of people to pray to receive Jesus Christ into their lives as Lord and Savior. His integrity and wisdom opened doors to offer spiritual support and guidance for United States presidents from Eisenhower to Bush. He was a friend to celebrities, politicians, athletes, and leaders, such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Bono, Muhammad Ali, Johnny Cash, Larry King, and WWII hero and Olympian Louis Zamperini.

On the other hand, his son Franklin Graham has been a monumental disaster and surely must cause his now deceased father to turn in his grave.
At the risk to his deceased father’s legacy and more importantly the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Frankly Graham has been a mouthpiece for Donald Trump’s Racism, tyranny and hateful behavior including to children.
To Graham, it seems that being a mouthpiece to the despicable liar Trump,is far more important than fidelity to the Gospel of Christ.

Franklin Graham

In an interview on MSNBC, host Craig Melvin pointed out to Graham that The Washington Post counted 8,158 false or misleading claims made by the president during his first two years in office.
Franklin Graham: “Well, I don’t know how to reconcile that, because I don’t know,” Graham replied. “You have a fact checker for the president but I don’t know if you have a fact checker for the media at the same time.”
Craig Melvin; “Pastor Graham, you and I both know this president has said things over and over that aren’t true.” 
Franklin Graham; “I don’t think the president is sitting there behind the desk trying to make up lies,I don’t believe that for a second. Has he misspoken on something? Sure, all of us do that, you do it, I do it. “So I think the president is trying to do the best that he can under very difficult circumstances.”

According to the Atlantic: Franklin Graham’s mission field knows no borders, but he’s proposed a total ban on Muslims entering the United States. He claims to hate politics, yet maintains a prolific, politicized Facebook page. And when he looks at Donald Trump, he sees God at work in the White House, not a president who would fire an FBI director while under investigation, brag about groping women, and give away state secrets over small talk.
Franklin Graham also told the media Trump is a “changed man” from when he made his notorious lewd comments about women. 
All of the lies that Graham has told in support of Trump’s lies while ignoring the multitude the pathological Trump has told, makes a mockery of Graham’s supposed mantra of”objective truth”.

Michelle Obama's InStyle cover.
Comments below made in reference to this glamorous spread.

But there is way more. Speaking to the Conservative Chronicle and responding to white Evangelical Christians claim that President Barack Obama was the Antichrist, Graham did not mince words.
“If Obama is the Antichrist, then Michelle Obama must be the Whore of Babylon.”The Whore of Babylon is a biblical figure associated with apocalyptic myths. Graham went on to say there were similarities between Michelle Obama and the Whore of Babylon.””The bible says the Whore of Babylon sits on a scarlet beast. Michelle Obama rides in a limo called the Beast,” said Graham. “Also, the Whore wears scarlet and purple, colors that Michelle Obama wears.”

According to the New York Times; When Barack Obama was president, Franklin Graham fanned the “birther” conspiracy that claimed the president was not an American citizen. He falsely suggested that Mr. Obama was not a Christian and might secretly be a Muslim. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Franklin Graham held rallies in 50 states to pump up evangelical turnout on what he called a “Decision America Tour.” Once Mr. Trump landed the Republican nomination, Mr. Graham avoided explicit endorsements at those rallies, but left no doubt about his preference.
After the election, Mr. Graham said that Mr. Trump’s victory was evidence that “God’s hand was at work.”

In all of this, we haven’t yet begun to scratch the surface of white Evangelical hypocrisy.
The blind support of trump by the older white, more xenophobic section of the population of which Graham is a part, has created a split in the so-called Evangelical movement.
But there is another wing of the evangelical movement whose members are more moderate politically, many of them black, Latino, Asian, or city dwellers, or young. Some of these evangelicals have grown increasingly discomfited by the close association with the Republican Party, and now, with Mr. Trump. Says the New York Times.

On that note, i is important that we call out the racist, xenophobe, the apostate Franklin Graham who believes he is an authority on God because he feeds some hungry people then disparage them based on their skin color and religious beliefs.

Kevin Sneed Acquitted Of ‘Attempted Murder’ Of Maryland Cop Who Jumped Into His Car [Corrected]

Illustration for article titled Kevin Sneed Acquitted of 'Attempted Murder' of Maryland Cop Who Jumped Into His Car [Corrected]

Kevin Sneed of Prince George’s County, Maryland was pulled over for a broken taillight. He ended up with an attempted murder charge. But after a two-year battle, and with help from advocacy groups Life After Release, and Black Lives Matter DC, Mr. Sneed can continue being a free man. Sometimes the justice system gets it right.
According to NBC Washington 4 the officer on duty wrote in his report that there was a “robbery in the immediate vicinity the previous night.” The officer claimed Sneed accelerated when the officer tried to pull him over for the broken taillight and feared Sneed might’ve had a gun on him because black man + attempted robbery the night before = this black man must be the robber from last night, armed, and dangerous. Of course, Sneed was simply Driving While Black. While full details haven’t yet been reported, we know that the officer jumped into the driver’s side window immediately after Sneed stopped his car.

After searching the vehicle, no guns or drugs were found in Sneed’s possession. Sneed was left bruised; beaten by the arresting cop. Yet Sneed was charged with attempted murder of an officer. “They told me no bond and they told me what I was actually charged with,” Sneed told NBC. “I said, ‘Just let me go to my cell.’” Understandably, the two-year battle that ensued took an emotional and psychological toll on Sneed, who maintained his innocence throughout the matter. “He felt like he didn’t even want to live,” said his mother, Kema Harris. Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy said she inherited the case from the previous state’s attorney. Her office determined the case had merit, and decided to prosecute, but with the reduced charges of second-degree assault and disorderly conduct rather than attempted murder. Sneed was offered a tempting plea deal: no jail time if he’d admit guilt to these lesser charges.
“At the end of the day,” Sneed said, “I would be a fool to take it and then they play with my life.” Sneed knew the history of corrupt justice systems that loom over both the innocent and the guilty. Many times people who can’t afford to mount a proper legal defense end up taking plea deals for crimes they’re innocent of, then face repercussions that follow them for a lifetime. Sneed and his mother eventually got help from the activist group Life After Release, which in turn involved Black Lives Matter DC to assist in retaining a new legal defense team.
“We were able to get a Black Lives Matter support fund for Kevin’s defense and get him away from public defenders who didn’t have his best interest,” Black Lives Matter Core Organizer Nee Nee Taylor said to NBC. After a two-day trial, a jury found Sneed not guilty on all charges Wednesday, a victory that Kevin Sneed does not take lightly. “If you did not do anything wrong, fight for your life,” Mr. Sneed declared.

Correction: 5/5/19, 1:37 p.m. ET:

Following initial reports, one of Mr. Sneed’s lawyers, Brandon Burrell, contacted The Root to dispute claims quoted by Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy to NBC Washington 4. Burrell also gave additional information proving the corruption of the case itself, as a gun was planted by police in attempt to further frame Mr. Sneed. Burrell clarifies:

It is inaccurate that the prosecutor “reduced” any of the charges. The grand jury didn’t find probable cause of attempted first-degree murder, so after the indictment, his charges were first-degree assault, second-degree assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, gun charges, and various traffic citations. The appearance of a gun a week after his arrest, and after he was searched was incredibly suspicious. The gun was also found in the backseat of the cruiser, but Sneed was placed in the front seat of the cruiser. The prosecutor had no choice but to dismiss the charges related to the gun the first day of trial, because of the indicia that it was planted by the police. When the trial began Sneed was then tried on first-degree assault, second-degree assault, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct. It was clear during the testimony of the initial officer that Sneed was racially profiled. One of the reasons for the stop was because of a robbery the night before in that location, but there was absolutely no correlation to that and Mr. Sneed. The officer wasn’t even involved in the robbery investigation.

Garrisons Strategic Impediment To National Growth……

Security forces on duty in under -served communities

If you are a follower of events in Jamaica, you could easily walk away believing that the Police is the beginning and the reason for Jamaica’s crime dilemma.
What we have however is a society schooled on anarchy and an unhealthy disregard and disrespect for the rule of law and a political leadership exempt from the arms of the law.
Subsequently, there is now an across the board attitude that people should be able to do as they please without consequence.
The average life expectancy of Jamaicans is somewhere in the Mid-seventies. It follows, therefore, that for the most part, literally every Jamaican alive today grew up listening to (AM-band) Radio Jamaica, and JBC Radio, which was dominated with daytime talk shows.
As you may have guessed the favorite topic has been about bad roads, no water or electricity, politics, and police.
(citation) reports that according to the latest World Health Organization (WHO) data published in 2018 life expectancy in Jamaica is: Male 73.6, female 78.5 and total life expectancy is 76.0 which gives Jamaica a World Life Expectancy ranking of 59.

High crime inner city neighborhoods

This factual analysis is in no way an attempt at [copsplaining], the Jamaican police have certainly done more than enough to cause at least some of the disrespect they have gotten over the years. Even so, it is important to understand contextually, how the force arrived at where it is today.
I will not litigate that here today sufficing to say that where there is righteous governance agencies of government tend to follow suit in giving quality service to the people.
Where there is corrupt governance across party lines as it obtains in Jamaica, and there is systemic effort to scapegoat a certain branch of Government, as the police have been, then it is only natural that the results are what they are.
Jamaicans decry the high murder rate yet they shield murderers and protest when they are arrested or killed.
They talk about the savagery being played out on young girls, but they encourage the drug and alcohol crazed zombies who destroy these children.
They say they want the laws enforced but get in the way when the police try to enforce the very same laws.
They say they want corruption gone, but they go to great lengths to explain away and rationalize theft committed by their political party members. We can either have a country of laws in which everyone is protected, and subject to the laws, or we can pay lip service to the rule of law, while being cheer-leaders for the criminal underworld.

In these communities the security forces are in a no win situation because the politicians laid the groundwork for their failure

And so as Jamaicans bemoan the massive loss of life at the hands of mindless drug and alcohol crazed killers, I propose a new course.
(1) Write a new Constitution and throw out the old one. Let us pledge our commitment to Jamaica land we love, instead of to an old white woman who represents everything wrong which was egregiously done to us.
(2) Replace our old archaic system with a new Republican-Democratic system, with a titular President and a chief executive as our Prime Minister. (See Trinidad and Tobago).
(3) Upgrade the penal code to reflect the seriousness of the times.
(3-a) Bring back the death penalty, death by firing squad.
(3-b) If a person is caught with an illegal gun it is imprisonment without the possibility of parole.
(3-c) If a person is caught with a firearm which was used in a violent crime, a-la murder the penalty is death. Persons who are not in possession of illegal guns or are engaged in crimes involving firearms should have nothing to worry about, right?
(4) Increase exponentially, the penalty for Rapes and other sexual assaults.
(5) Increase exponentially the penalty for public officials who engage in official misconduct while in office. (That includes everyone from the Prime Minister on down to the lowest rung of the public payroll).

These necessary contacts decreases trust and increases animosity between citizens and police

If we are serious about cleaning up our country we cannot be queasy about the penalties we codify into law to deal with those who break our laws.
In societies in which crime is reduced to a bare minimum, every citizen has a chance to live their dreams and enjoy their lives as they see fit.
Crime is one of the greatest impediments to personal and collective growth. Jamaica, is no exception to that rule, and so, despite the supposed work ethic of our people, the country can only eke out a marginal best case growth rate of 1.30 %.
According to, Jamaica has one of the slowest growing economies in the Caribbean. Services, with tourism employing 10 percent of the population, is the most important sector of the economy and accounts for around 60 percent of GDP. 

dismantling Garrisons and expanding sporting leagues would go a long way to disincentive criminal activities.

The nation’s leaders on both sides of the political divide talk a good game about increasing the gross domestic product.
What they refuse to acknowledge is that their love and support for lawlessness has made it impossible for the country to see any meaningful growth.
The continuation and perpetuation of the garrison culture which keeps the residents of these communities impoverished and thereby dependent and beholden to crime figures, are some of the greatest threats to the solvency and legitimacy of the Jamaican state.
At the same time, the Garrisonization of the Island is not something on the wane. politicians in both major political parties see the garrison culture as strategic to gaining and continued hold on state power.
Consequently, the chances of any meaningful change in the way of dismantling the garrisons, and freeing the citizens from the tentacles of the so-called area leaders o/c “Dons”, remains a distant dream for thinking Jamaicans.

You The People Get What You Allow Them To Do…

The year was 1983 and I waited with bated breath with my colleagues that afternoon. We were young constables, who were to be transferred from the Beat & Foot Patrol Division to stations across the country.
We were told that for the very first time in our Nation’s history, officers not trained specifically for the Mobile Reserve, would be transferred to that Division.
I wanted no part of the Mobile Reserve, not because there was anything wrong with the Mobile Reserve as it were, but my dream of becoming a detective would be severely sidetracked, were I among those sent to the Division.
At that time the Police Force Orders was a confidential document between command structure and personnel.
Criminals and their support structures did not know unit strength, they had no idea where officers were to be transferred to, and they damn sure did not have private and confidential information of police officers which should be confidential, available only by court order.
It was the latter-day, new age crowd-pleasing, Owen Ellington who made that document public for absolutely no good reason.
And so that fateful day as the Force Orders arrived and we all crowded around a single copy of the document, I learned that what I had always construed to be shitty luck, was not about to change in that Force Order. Not on that day.
Mobile Reserve it would be for me. My tears flowed freely. I did not want to go to a unit which was best known for breaking up riots and doing static duties. I did not want to be a part of a unit which was rumored to be where careers went to die. I joined the force because I wanted to investigate crimes and put criminals away.
After spending the better part of four years there including on the crack super effective Rangers Squad, I grew into becoming a proud member of that famous Division.
My time spent at the Mobile Reserve will forever be memorialized in my life’s history, as one of the most consequential and invaluable periods of my personal growth and development.
It was what I learned and lived at the Mobile Reserve which saved my life in a dark alleyway on Blackwood Terrace in 88 when at point-blank range, a would-be murderer opened fire on me, two other cops and a civilian member of the community.

The community member was shot twice and the two cops ran away leaving me to fight off the shooter.
It was that tactical awareness which allowed me to disarm the assailant even after I was shot, thereby saving the injured man’s life as well as my own.
There was no call from the Commissioner of Police nor any of his minions. There was no statement of outrage that something like that could happen in his constituency by the member of Parliament.

He was probably ecstatic, because he had no love for me based on my no-nonsense approach to the low-life scumbags who operated out of his constituency.
There was no national honor, I was back to my beloved CIB office the next day.
Back then that is what we did, that is who we were. We were made that way.

It is rather difficult to break through the self-assured ignorance and the incessant gibberish of a plurality of our people.
It is near impossible to convince our people to seek facts, then insert their opinions, rather than to harden their own preconceived notions and opinions, ignoring facts which surface later.
As a Jamaican, I too had to come to grips with the reality that we are extraordinarily opinionated, even when we have no access to facts, we create our own narratives then fend off the truth of whatever topic is under discussion.
I also learned that truth in our country is processed depending on the teller.
Our political, religious, societal and other beliefs structures, largely inform how we process information.
They determine whether factual information find fertile space in our sub-conscious or are discarded and replaced with our preconceived notions and opinions.

And so even though information technology has made it possible to radically transform dark spaces of ignorance into bright hemispheres of light, there are some who will ignore the reality of available credible information, choosing instead the default option of stale and rancid opinion-based nonsense.
I had one such conversation yesterday with a man who tells me that his girlfriend is a cop back home. He proceeded to lambaste the police even though he had just told me that his girlfriend is a police officer with over twenty years of service.
I quickly realized he was one of the programmed opinionated facts-be-damned types, so I limited what I said and allowed him enough leverage to hang himself.

He proceeded to tell me that Jamaican police are lazy and that they need to work more hours. This gentleman knows I am a former law enforcement officer, and he was standing in my business-place telling me this.
I asked him whether he thought his girlfriend was lazy he said ‘no,” she works hard.
I asked him, “do you consider me lazy, “whenever you come here, I am here working, I led”? he replied in the negative.
He then went into the canned narrative about police stations being closed at nights in Jamaica.
I asked whether he had ever gone to a police station for help and not received assistance, whether night or day, he responded no.
I then asked him whether the two precinct houses within a three miles radius of where we were standing were opened at nights, or does one have to enter and speak to an officer through an intercom, he responded they are closed.
I ended my conversation with him there.

As a young officer, I worked so hard sometimes my hands shook for lack of sleep. Nevertheless, we have a country which has come of age on an incessant anti-police drumbeat.
One made possible by the likes of Wilmott Perkins, Ronald Thwaites, Barbara Gloudon, Garnett Roper, Cliff Hughes, and others.

A demagogic cliche of self-serving traitors to our country, who like termites ate away at the foundations of the rule of law, and now the very foundations of our embryonic democracy are at the peril of crumbling.

Jamaica wants to become a developed country but it woefully lacks critical thinking among those who lead to ever be a serious contender for that designation.
Jamaicans like to point to the Singaporean model as a model which copied strains of our system, yet what the Singaporeans did to arrive at where they are, have completely eluded Jamaicans.
There is no reason that Jamaica’s Tourism, Bauxite, reggae, Ganja, Coffee, our rich fertile soil in which everything thrives and the dynamism of our people should not make us the Dubai of the Caribbean and the envy of the world.
Unfortunately, the Island can never be that, because at best we are a people who rather like to hear ourselves talk.
We are giant pontificators and prognosticators, never mind that when we do both we sometimes have no idea what we are talking about.

The idea to dismantle the Mobile Reserve has been one of their goals all along.
The elevation of Carolyn Gomes to relevance in the way our laws are structured to go after murderers and gangsters, the creation of INDECOM and the appointment of rabid anti-police demagogue Terrence Williams and the British Imposter Hamish Campbell.

A man who did nothing to investigate his corrupt former colleagues who planted evidence on black people in England, is proof that they wanted to dismantle the force.
So when Horace Chang referred to the Police Department as a glorified security guard company, don’t believe for one moment that was a slip of the tongue.
Don’t believe for one moment that Andrew Holness’ constant statements, that, “no longer would police be kicking in doors”, were made in the abstract.
He knew all along that he wanted to carry out the mandate of Bruce Golding before him. He wanted to finish what Golding started with INDECOM, and the acquiescence of the PNP, tells its own story of corruption and deceit.
Throughout its history, the Mobile Reserve has stood as a bastion of solace to freedom loving law abiding Jamaicans.
True to form, those who would murder and maim had it out for that unit, none more so than the filthy scumbags who pass for politicians but are suit-wearing gangsters.
Imagine a country in which the member of parliament with the most violent garrison in his constituency is the Minister with the responsibility to quell the nation’s crime epidemic.
And so they devise a plan to destroy the force while telling the nation that they intend to rebrand it, what they do not say is that the people who will staff the new and improved force will not be coming from China or Mars, they will come from the very same 84% corrupt Jamaica, so clearly that methodology is a fake and a fraud.
The clear and unequivocal intent of Andrew Holness and his Administration is to dismantle the JCF and replace it with a [courtesy corp of degreed]stooges who talk a good game, but have no clue how to handle the Nation’s rapidly growing murderous gangs.

At the end of the day dismantling bastions of certitude only to create the illusory effect that you are making changes is a solace to fools. How can you purify water by moving the same dirty water to a different vessel? The bright young officers they are talking about are people steeped in UWI philosophy of human rights. They have zero strategies, skills or will to stamp out crime and so they intend to perfume the shit while the people are being slaughtered daily.
It cannot continue that people are being slaughtered every day while the PM and his Government with the full acquiescence of the Opposition party tears down the police department and make it out to be the bad guys. The police have been set up to fail from the get-go, first, they promote fools and lackeys and political lapdogs, then they promote slavish yes-people, effectively forcing out dedicate good career people and now they have people with more degrees that they have guns at up park camp but none of it has helped. The Prime minister and Chang who runs the most killer garrison (laughable) tell Antony Anderson to reduce the force to nothing, that is the reason he was hired. Anderson in his ignorance said he hopes to see the day when all police officers are human rights officers. What absurd ignorance? Every real person who stepped forward to be a cop was already a human rights activists, they place their lives on the line for people they do not know. Which of the so-called human rights activists in the country can claim that they have ever been shot at, much less shot, defending anyone’s right to life (their most sacred right)? But Anderson would never understand it because he is a fake cop, and the people above him are police haters.

The only thing that the PNP and the JLP agree on, is something that is antithetical to the good of the country.
That thing is the total destruction of the Jamaica Constabulary Force.
Through the Starving of the Department of resources, Support to gangsters in the Garrisons, Interference in law enforcement, setting up other government agencies to be antagonistic toward the police, and a raft of other subversive methods, both criminal gangs have effectively destroyed the once proud agency.
This they did with the gleeful assistance of some in civil society and the media.
Make no mistake about it, a competent non-aligned police force is a dangerous force to the criminals who sit in the people’s house.
As my friend said to me today, the law-makers are the lawbreakers, but for the most part, the people are too stupid and brainwashed to see it.

That is why there is no longer any hollering from the PNP about Petrojam.
If a thorough and professional investigation was to be done many in both political gangs would die in prison.
So someone high up in the PNP hierarchy told them to lay off the issue.
A total and compete bunch of scum, but then again why would either of these sets of gangsters stop with their criminality?
Where there is no wisdom the people perish.

Those of you who think that this new courtesy corp that Andrew Holness and Horace Chang with the consent of the PNP is creating, will stop the bloodshed in your communities think again.
Neither of these sets of gangsters cares about the close to 1700, who are murdered each year.
Neither do they care about your daughters being raped and discarded like thrash by the animals who pose as human men.
But then again you get what you deserve.

Fire On John’s Road/ Dismantle Mobile Reserve/Failed State/looming….

Mark my words, Jamaica will rue the day that this Administration decided to dismantle the Mobile Reserve over an incident which is still in the early stages of an investigation.
This clearly demonstrates that this Administration wanted to take this action before, knowing full well that the Mobile Reserve is the backbone of the force, the last bastion of a department which has stood firm against the tyranny of violent crimes political and otherwise.
This move must be seen as a clear and unequivocal capitulation of the people’s right to security and safety to Terrence Williams, Hamish Campbell and the criminal rights lobby and the complicit media in our country.
Every Jamaican must now be prepared to defend themselves, as this Government has clearly decided that that is not something it cares about.

The Jamaican Government under the leadership of Andrew Holness and National Security Minister Horace Chang with the full support of the Opposition PNP has done their level best to set up the police to fail.
As I said in a previous Article I was confident that there was a real back story to the Chedwin Park shooting last Sunday Morning involving some police officers who were supposedly on suspension.
Nevertheless, as it regards the dismantling of the Mobile Reserve this Administration is establishing an indelible set of footprints which clearly demonstrates that it has scant to zero regards for the Police Department.
This Political party and Government will rue the day it decided to embark on this process.
It will be a watershed moment in our nation’s history.
It will effectively mean that the Government with the Opposition party has taken the final steps to dismantle the JCF and render the Jamaican people defenseless against the Island’s criminal.

PM Andrew Holness

I made it quite clear that I thought that the incident on Sunday morning had a deeper back story and so now, it is becoming evident that there is much more to this story, than have been reported or probably will ever be reported.

The real story is being whispered in the streets. Front and center are the million dollar question:
(1) The types of spent shells allegedly recovered at the scene are inconsistent with the type of weapons that the alleged good-cop shooter would have.
(2) Was the so-called hero cop really there officially, or was he there as a bodyguard to the so-called “DON” who was killed that morning?
(3) Why has ACP Bent been sent on leave to facilitate the probe, if there isn’t something deeply sinister going on?
(4) Were the police officers involved, really on Suspension, and if not why?
(5) If they were supposed to be on suspension and they weren’t, what type of mission were they on which involved the killing of a “DON”, facilitated by JCF assets?
(6) Who is behind the hit as it has been rumored to be?
(7) Who paid for the hit on the so-called “Don”.

Fire on John’s Road St. Catherine in support of a murdered “DON”

It is now up to the Commissioner of Police and step forward and answer these questions, because if the officers were in service to their country through countermeasures they should not be demonized and their names dragged in the mud.
If they are the criminals some said they are, no effort should be spared to follow the evidence to the top and ensure that the full force of the law applies.
However, criminals play by no rules. Every successful country has been forced to develop strategies which give law-abiding citizens the upper hand.
As Jamaicans, we pretend to be bright but much of what we do is talk without a real understanding of what it takes to maintain a fully functional and stable society.
Simply put, as long as the country continues to proceed on the track it’s on with the present crop of leaders, the nation will inch ever so closer to becoming a fully fledged failed state.
If the officers were serving their country we need to know. If they were mercenaries carrying out hits we need to know under whose instructions and who is behind their actions.

One Justice For Whites Another For Blacks In America…..

Shane Piche

Rape is a crime of depravity which not only destroys the victim’s body, it touches the soul. There should be no support for those who knowingly and willfully force themselves sexually on another human being against that person’s will.
At the same time, police, prosecutors and the criminal justice system should do the utmost in due diligence, to ensure that those arrested, prosecuted and jailed are indeed guilty of the crimes they are alleged to have committed.
It does society no good, if men are sent to prison because of vindictive women who had hurt feelings and cry rape to punish the man

Bill Cosby

I recently wrote that Legislation will not fix the institutionalized racism in America because those who are enforcing the laws are hell-bent on maintaining the institution of white supremacy and white privilege to benefit themselves.
Legislation will not fix how police enforce laws, when the officers have no respect for a certain segment of the society and see them as disposable.
Legislation will not fix the problem of Prosecutors who refuse to honor their oaths and prosecute killer cops who viciously exterminate people they hate under the color of law.
The laws are
As important as it is to have good laws, is if judges disproportionately send Black and Brown people to prison for long stretches then give whites tiny taps of the wrist for the very same offense how can there be respect for the rule of law or the administrators of that system?

R Kelly

Bill Cosby an eighty-something-year-old Black man is in prison for alleged sexual assaults committed years ago, outside the stipulated statute of limitations.
R&B singer Robert Kelly (R Kelly), is on a million dollar bond for sexual assault, yet a white Shane Piche, 25, white male, was sentenced to 10 years probation and must register as a sex offender — but escaped time behind bars due to the fact that he had no previous arrests, according to the Watertown Daily Times.
Judge James P. McClusky said probation was an appropriate sentence because Piche had no prior arrests and only had one victim.
Police said that Piche met the girl while on the job as a bus driver and had sex with her at his apartment in Jefferson County.
So according to this retarded Judge rape and its attendant punishment, is premised on the number of victims the rapist destroys, not on the dastardly act itself.

This is in the supposed liberal state of New York though upstate in the sticks of the Watertown region.
While these atrocious disparities are happening in enforcement, prosecution, conviction and sentencing, Black people are going to prison for a year for smoking marijuana and or driving under the influence and having their driving privileges yanked.
The blatant disregard for any semblance of prosperity as it relates to how the nation’s laws are applied is evidenced in plain sight.
The rich and powerful and even those who are not rich and powerful but have white skin, are exempt from the punitive component of the laws and in some case aren’t even prosecuted for their crimes.
