Amnesty International says Barbados police torture prisoners

Dottin Police Shootings

According to Amnesty, on March 17, Mottley and Headley, in the company of their lawyer, presented themselves at the Hastings police station in “good health”, as certified by a doctor.

But hours later, Mottley’s lawyer Brian Clarke reportedly received a call from his client requesting his urgent presence.

“When the lawyer arrived, he saw that Adrian Mottley was in distress, he had a split lip and had vomit on his mouth. Shortly afterwards he fainted and began foaming at the mouth, ” Amnesty claimed in the statement.

It said after receiving medical attention, Mottley later told his lawyer that “police officers had wrapped him in plastic wrap from his feet up to his neck and then [beat] him around the body.”

Internet pornography kills love, warps young minds and sustains slavery.

Donville Inniss associated website: Pregnant women porn at Orgasm.com

Government Minister Donville Inniss associated website: Pregnant women porn at Orgasm.com …CLICK PHOTO FOR DETAILS AND STORY…

by Grenville Phillips II

by Grenville Phillips II

Pornography is now easily available to all school children who have access to a tablet or a smart phone.  It is facilitated by persons who allow unrestricted access to the Internet in their homes or at the many Wi-Fi hotspots around Barbados.  So let me share a solution; but first, let me describe the problem.

Pornography has two main damaging effects.  The impact for viewers is that that they can primarily view sexual intercourse as a means to satisfy themselves rather than satisfying their partners.  For male viewers, this can lead to a less satisfying sexual experience for her and a boring routine for him.  He will likely develop an uncaring attitude towards her if she does not express a similar delight in his sexual performance as those whom he watches.  His sexual experience should be all about satisfying her, and her sexual experience should be all about satisfying him.

The most damaging impact is on the victims whom the watchers are viewing.  Many women, especially from Asian and eastern European countries, are forced into the sex slave trade, with harsh consequences if they do not show delight when raped (See ‘Half the Sky’ and other research into sex slavery).  As the watchers view these victims, they are supporting and sustaining this slavery.  If people choose not to pay to view pornography on the Internet, then they still support and sustain the sex slave trade by adding to the web sites’ page views, which increases their potential advertising revenues.  Continue reading

Daughters of the Niger Delta “The oil has spoiled everything for us…”

BFP has been invited to see this documentary on Saturday March 8th. We’ll let you know what we think. Here is a description from the film’s website:

Daughters of the Niger Delta
Documentary (55:30 min)

Daughters of the Niger Delta is an intimate film portrait of three everyday heroines who manage to make ends meet against all odds. As their personal stories unfold, we come to see that the widely ignored environmental pollution in their backyard is not the only human rights issue affecting their lives.

The Stories

The film radically differs from the usual media reports about oil outputs, conflict, and kidnapping. It gives a taste of everyday life in the Niger Delta through the eyes of three ordinary women: Hannah, Naomi & Rebecca. Their struggle to survive in the delta’s beautiful but pollution-marred wetlands confronts us with the human impact of corporate irresponsibility, gender injustice, and failing government service delivery.

The stories of Hannah, Naomi, and Rebecca are sobering as well as uplifting. They shed light on day-to-day injustices that we rarely hear about in the news. But they also highlight women’s strength and resilience. Despite the hardship affecting their lives, the filmed women are determined to give their children a better future. Women may be the best captains to navigate the Niger Delta out of its troubled waters – if only they were given the chance.

Women’s Voices

It’s time to listen to women’s voices. Their priorities are relevant not only for the Niger Delta, but also for other parts of Nigeria that currently are marred by violence and social unrest. Women’s experiences can enrich the policy discourse – if only we are willing to listen.

Discredited Barbados Police can’t shake the tourist rape case that won’t go away.

Barbados rape dna police

Tourist Rape Victims continue to press for justice – for them and  for the wrongly accused!

Rape victims Dr. Rachel Turner (left) and Diane Davies (right) continue their quest to have the Royal Barbados Police Force re-open their rape cases. The two women were violently attacked in October 2010 while visiting Barbados, and then spent the next two years trying to free the man who was falsely arrested for the crime. Derrick Crawford spent two years in jail before the charges were dropped, despite the protests by the victims that he was not the man. True to form, our professional police force never took DNA samples from the victims, and the innocent man, Derrick Crawford, says most credibly that the police beat his confession out of him. You know, just like usual as people on this rock know.

The Commissioner of Police at the time was Darwin Dottin. BFP had been calling for Dottin’s sacking for years but it was not until June of 2013 that Bajans were finally rid of the man who led the Royal Barbados Police Force into a steep decline in professionalism and public support. Last June, the victims cheered Dottin’s removal…

Mrs Davies told the BBC she was “absolutely delighted” that Commissioner Dottin was no longer in charge.

“He supported the police investigation and turned on us,” said Mrs Davies.

She called on whoever replaces Commissioner Dottin to “reopen the case and find the man who attacked us”.

… from the BBC’s Barbados Rapes: Police Chief Removed

Now the victims are back in the news, having written to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart after Acting Commissioner Tyrone Griffith also refused to re-open the case.

How long will it take on politicians and police to learn that these days, you can’t make difficult or embarrassing happenings go away by ignoring them!

The internet is here. This story won’t go away on it’s own. It will keep coming back because the real rapist remains free and the victims want justice.

TopGear is coming. Watcha gonna do, Commissioner?   Continue reading

Nation News ‘Dear Christine’ advises woman to commit paternity fraud

paternity fraud barbados

“it will not be in your best interest, >>> for you to bring this matter to the fore at this stage.”

A married woman is preggers and doesn’t know if her husband or some bloke at the office is the father. “Dear Christine” in The Nation advises the woman to keep her yob shut because it is not in her best interest to tell her husband.

It’s called PATERNITY FRAUD and women do it to men all the time. Once the man starts paying for the child it is usually too late to reverse the responsibility even if the man was tricked into believing it was his child.

Paternity Fraud has been called ‘The Perfect Crime

Do you love your wife? Good. Is she having a baby? Good.

At the first opportunity make sure you quietly take a DNA swab when no one is looking and send it away for testing to see if the child is really yours. Better to know right away for a whole lot of reasons.

Just do it.

Universal Rights Group publishes rubbish about The Maldives

Marc Limon - He did what? !

URG Executive Director Marc Limon – He did what??? !!!

Maldives… a liberal democracy with strong human rights safeguards?

Such SHITE.

Check out this statement by Universal Rights Group about their Executive Director, Marc Limon…

“Marc Limon worked as a diplomat (rank of Counsellor) at the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council from the body’s establishment in 2006 until the end of 2012. This included participating in the negotiations on the institution-building package (which determined how the Council would operate), on the Council’s mid-term review, and on a wide-range of thematic and country-specific issues over the course of twenty-one regular sessions and nineteen special sessions.

From 2003 onwards, Marc worked as a Senior Advisor to the Government of the Maldives, providing counsel to support the country’s democratic and human rights reform agenda. This agenda oversaw the Maldives’ peaceful transition from an Islamic autocracy to a liberal democracy with strong human rights safeguards. As part of this agenda, Marc was responsible for strengthening the Maldives’ engagement with the international human rights system. This included establishing a Permanent Mission in Geneva, coordinating the country’s accession to almost all international human rights conventions and the fulfilment of its reporting obligations, extending a Standing Invitation to all human rights Special Procedures, coordinating reporting under the Universal Periodic Review and, in 2010, working on the Maldives’ successful campaign for election to the Human Rights Council (the first time the country had ever been elected to a UN body)…”

Maldives jail Christian for possessing bible

Alright. Let’s get some things square from the start: I believe that the Universal Rights Group has a place, if only to try and convince the practitioners of barbaric religious and cultural traditions to stop killing folks who don’t believe the same thing they do, and also to stop mutilating women’s genitals in order to control them by depriving them of sexual pleasure and personhood.

So good for Marc Limon and his compatriots.

But when Universal Rights Group calls The Maldives a “liberal democracy”, well… they might as well just take more LSD or whatever drug they are doing because they have lost all fucking touch with reality.

Check out these past BFP articles, do a little independent research about The Maldives and then see if you can agree with URG’s statement that The Maldives are a “liberal democracy with strong human rights safeguards”.

Good Lord!

Marriage problems? Try a Maldives vacation where it’s lawful to beat and rape your wife!

maldives wife rape

Having a little problem with the wife not getting cuddly when you want to?

A vacation in the Maldives might be just the thing for your ailing marriage!

A Message from the Tourism Bureau of The Maldives

We’re The Maldives – your ultimate tropical paradise vacation destination. 1,192 tiny coral islands known for their peaceful and exquisite ‘back to nature’ environment.

Swim in our warm azure waters. Walk on pure crystalline white sands as leaning palms provide shade and beauty. Relax in a tranquil setting on any one of our pristine out islands where the Islamic riots don’t usually happen. And, if we ever open our museum again, you can see the finest headless statues in the world. Such art!

Maldivian President Abdulla Yameen has refused to ratify a bill that seeks to partially criminalize marital rape, calling it “un-Islamic.”

The parliament voted 67-2 last month to limit a husband’s right to have non-consensual sex with his wife. The bill says a husband cannot force his wife to have sex if the couple have filed for divorce, dissolution or mutual separation, and if the intent is to transmit a sexual disease.

President Yameen refused to ratify that law because it is “un-Islamic.”

Go swimming – you don’t really need a Maldives massage anyway. That’s why we shut down hundreds of resort spas.

No need to bring your Bible or rosary – why not just enjoy a week or two without your filthy Christian religion?

Celebrate our patriarchal Islamic culture where the most beautiful women are property to be married off so long as they have attained the ripe old age of nine.

And later when the day is done and you are a man feeling a little out of sorts, or needing some comfort from your wife: don’t be afraid to assert what is your lawful right over your own property.

It’s a man’s world here in The Maldives – and the women had better not forget that if they know what’s good for them.

Sometimes women need to be disciplined. That’s why our President Abdulla Yameen just vetoed a bill that limited a husband’s right to non-consensual sex. “Non-consensual sex” is so much better than the word “rape”, don’t you think?

With the elimination of the law protecting a wife from forced sex, (even if the husband has venereal disease), the future is assured: The Maldives will remain a man’s world. Continue reading

Disposable Dads reminded to keep paying whether working or not

“The kind of wife and mother for your child that you should be seeking will not be found rubbing crotches together on the road at Cropover…

Unfortunately that eliminates 90% of young Bajan women.”

by The Man with no Future

Hear me, oh young men!

For the life of me I don’t know why any man would want to father a child these days, let alone get married.

Look at the hundreds of poor dumb “fathers in name only” the Barbados government is making redundant in the mass-firings. Government kicking them in the ass on the way out: reminding them to Keep Paying. Nevermind they have no job, no money and no prospect of finding new work on this dying island. The message is “Keep paying the woman you made pregnant, fool.”

You want slavery for all of your prime working years?

Father a child.

Father a child.

“Cumba” – the story of one slave woman owned by Captain John Burch, Christ Church. From Africa to Barbados to England

slavery-barbados.jpg

“Mr. Maverick was desirous to have a breed of Negroes, and therefore seeing she would not yield by perswasions to company with a Negro young man he had in his house…”

… from John Josselyn as recounted in Two Voyages to New England, published 1674

One story of millions

by West Side Davie

“Cumba” was her name. She died a slave in Romford, England in April, 1668 – the property of John Burch and his wife Margaret of Hogsty Plantation. (I’m not sure whether Captain John Burch of Barbados is also referred to and is the same as Colonel John Burch of Barbados, but this family history and other websites seem to say it is the same man. I remain open for correction!)

Today, Cumba is remembered as Havering’s first black resident in an excellent article by Professor Ged Martin just published in the Romford Recorder:

It was 350 years ago this year that a fabulously rich couple, John and Margaret Burch, arrived in Romford.

They’d made their money in Barbados, exploiting slave labour to produce the bonanza crop: sugar.

In 1664, they retired to England, buying Romford’s biggest estate, Gidea Hall, then usually called Giddy Hall. The mansion, demolished in 1930, stood just east of Raphael Park.

Madam Burch, as she was fawningly called, brought her personal maidservant from Barbados, the ultimate status symbol.

Cumba was Havering’s first black resident. A slave, a piece of property, Cumba survived the English climate just four years.

But when she died, in April 1668, somebody had the humanity to record her name in the register of Romford’s St Edward’s church. “Cumber, a ffemale Blackamore servant from Guyddy Hall, buried.”

Today, “blackamore” is an offensive term. But in 1668, when “black” was used to ­describe complexion, it was an attempt to identify Cumba with some dignity. The double “ff” ­indicated a capital letter.

… read the entire article Cumba: Havering’s first black resident remembered on the 350th anniversary of her arrival.

We know very little about Cumba, but we still know far more about her than we do about millions of other people who were enslaved with her and since. We know about the times in which she lived, and we also know a little about the socially-condoned cruelty of slave owners. I believe that much of history has been ‘cleansed’, but not all of it. What passed for ‘normal’ and ‘acceptable’ when Cumba lived gives us some idea of her personal circumstances, what she probably saw even if she was not herself subject to all of the abuses. We simply don’t know the details of her life, but we know the times.

So to learn more about Cumba, we will talk of the people around her: the powerful elites of society at the time… Continue reading

Christmas 2013: Muslims slaughtering Christians throughout the Middle East, Africa, South Asia

Christmas Islam

(click photo for large)

Interfaith Outreach – Islamic style…

It is genocide by any definition, and it gets worse every Christmas as devout Muslims seek to obey the instructions of the Koran as they and millions of their coreligionists understand their duties.

Thirty-four Christians murdered for being Christians in Iraq, 1,000 believers slaughtered in the Central African Republic… It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Every Christmas.

And, aside from violence, what is the response of the Muslim leadership throughout the world to Christians at Christmas time?

Muslim leadership talks about Christmas in their own words…

Denmark: Islamic demonstration on Christmas Eve — “Allahu akbar!”

Turkey: Anti-Santa campaigns heat up as Christmas arrives.

Indonesia: Muslims prohibit Christmas & New Year celebrations

Christmas greetings by Muslims prohibited

USA: Lebanese-born Cleric: saying “Merry Christmas” is worse than fornication, alcohol or killing someone

USA: Washington Mufti – taking pictures with Santa an abomination

India, Pakistan: Islamic clerics denounce Christmas celebrations

Now, a list of all Muslim groups and individuals publicly wishing others a “Merry Christmas”, or expressing regrets about Muslim violence against Christians…

(I couldn’t find any. If you locate any, please leave a comment with the link.)

So let’s look at Christmas 2013 and the few weeks leading up to the celebration of the birth of Jesus…

Sir Charles Williams – no government contracts so I’m firing workers over 65 years old

Sir Charles Williams Barbados

Over 65? No place for you at C.O. Williams Construction Limited

COW Williams makes some valid criticisms about the uneven playing field for government contracts in his latest interview with The Nation, but he lost me when he told how he chooses to make people redundant: he fires people over 65 years old.

Williams retains people not by merit, or seniority and loyalty: exactly the opposite. The over 65 crowd is his target, for the most part the folks who have been with him the longest, who have shown loyalty and helped to build the company for decades.

But they are old now, not quite what they used to be. All used up, damaged. Slower.

So they are the first to go.

“Not one single monthly paid worker has gotten a bonus for the last four years in order that we can keep people to work. We had to look at the possibility of laying off some people. The last thing I want to do is to have to send home more staff. We have cut it to a minimum but we have had to send home staff, primarily those who are past 65 and that sort of thing,”

Sir Charles Williams talks to The Nation in Not fair, says Sir Charles

Am I being too hard on Sir Cow? He makes a good argument on how difficult and unfair things are in the awarding of government contracts, and it must be difficult to have to choose people to be made redundant.

But to reward long term loyalty by firing?

Shame. Shame, Mr. Williams. Shame.

Barbados 1780 rum made by slaves fetches highest price ever

harwood rum barbados

Queen Elizabeth’s cousin sells 12 bottles from secret stash for US$127,555.65

In 1780 on the island of Barbados, unknown slaves without names distilled and barreled rum for their master: Edward Lascelles, the first Earl of Harewood. The rum was shipped to jolly old England in barrels where it was bottled and tucked away in a cellar at the family mansion… where it sat for 231 years before being discovered. Wuhloss! It wouldn’t have lasted a week ’bout my home!

Educated at Trinity College, Cambridge, the Earl (later promoted to Viscount Lascelles) owned some 22 plantations and 2,947 slaves in the Caribbean – including Lascelles House near Holetown.

All these years later his descendant, David Lascelles, 8th Earl of Harewood, is the first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II and great-grandson of King George V.

Mount Gay Rum owns the Barbados estate.

What did the 8th Earl of Harewood do with all that money from the sale of slave rum? Good for him… he gave the money back to the Caribbean people – to the Geraldine Connor Foundation.

Good for the Queen’s cousin!

But he only gave back the money from 12 bottles of rum.

We still waiting for the money from the sale of the family mansion: bought an paid for with the blood and tears of thousands of slaves.

Robert.

How Sir Ronald Sanders swayed Caribbean support for Britain during the Falklands War

caricom-barbados-ronald-sanders.jpgSue Onslow of the University of London interviewed Sir Ronald Sanders as part of the Commonwealth Oral History Project. The entire interview available to read online at Commonwealth Oral Histories, or you can download the PDF at the bottom of this post.

Sir Ronald was a diplomat starting in the 1980′s and was part of the Commonwealth Eminent Persons Group reporting in 2011. The first Eminent Persons Group included Barbados future Governor General, Dame Nita Barrow, who famously dressed in African garb to sneak into Soweto in South Africa and also met with Nelson Mandella in jail.

The interview covers a wide range of topics where Sir Ronald gives the perspective of someone right in the middle of the chaos that is international politics. Topics include South Africa (people, politics and apartheid), the US invasion of Grenada, the Falklands War and stories and opinions about famous people including then Barbados Prime Minister Tom Adams and lessor public figures like Reagan and Castro. ;-)

It’s a good read for anyone interested in history or politics.

Here’s a passage about how the Caribbean had decided to side with Argentina in the Falklands, but then Sir Ronald decided to convince the leaders that our collective interests favoured the UK…   Continue reading

Donville Inniss ignores his own sex-industry profits to chastize Jamaica Gleaner

Donville Inniss associated website: Pregnant women porn at Orgasm.com

Donville Inniss associated website: Pregnant women porn at Orgasm.com

Minister of Industry and International Business has convenient memory lapse

Barbados Government Minister Donville Inniss

Barbados Government Minister Donville Inniss

Barbados Government Minister Donville Inniss was part of the lucrative online sex business for years. He profited from websites where desperate pregnant women and teenagers performed sex acts for money.

Inniss also profited from websites showing humans committing sex acts with animals.

You know we couldn’t say this if it wasn’t true folks. Our WordPress hosting company would take us down faster than a rum disappears at Oistens on a Friday night.

DLP Democratic Labour Party government member Donville Inniss has a long and sullied history of internet sex profiteering. Mia Mottley first brought this up years ago, but the Nation and the other Barbados news media protected Inniss by ignoring the big story and only writing about the ‘Naked News‘ website in a humorous manner. The Bajan news media made no mention of dozens of disgusting porn websites that formed part of the Inniss online porn empire at the time.

The only Bajan journalist who has ever seriously questioned Minister Inniss about his online sex business is Ian Bourne of The Bajan Reporter.

You can find a list of BFP’s Donville Inniss online sex articles here: Questions about Minister’s porn business profiteering

Now Inniss has launched a “scathing attack on a Sunday Gleaner editorial” where the Gleaner supported the Nation staffers charged with child porn.

At the same time Barbados Home Affairs Minister Adriel Brathwaite reminded folks that ‘Not everyone involved in transactional sex is doing it willingly‘. That’s true: many of the men and women at the Inniss sex websites are quite desperate. It’s a wonder that Minister Brathwaite can sit in the same room with online sex profiteer Donville Inniss.

You should read The Gleaner articles at their website, but because so many news articles are taken down or changed we have to reprint the whole thing here:

‘Mind Your Own Business And Look At Rot In Jamaica’ – Bajan Minister Blasts Gleaner For ‘Political Undertones’

Gleaner, November 19, 2013

A BARBADOS government minister has launched a scathing attack on a Sunday Gleaner editorial, telling the newspaper to take its nose out of Bajan affairs and concentrate on the “rot going on in Jamaica”.

The fiery reaction stemmed from the editorial, published this past Sunday, on the controversial arrest and charge of three employees of The Nation newspaper in Barbados for publishing a story and photograph of two 14-year-olds having sex at school.

Bajan Minister of Industry and International Business Donville Inniss described the editorial as shameful.

Said Inniss, it is “one of the nastiest pieces of editorial work which I have seen in any media house in the Caribbean”. Continue reading
