CONFIRMED: 30 year old Curtis Callender is the latest to die in police custody.
The Nation newspaper is describing the death as “unnatural”. Well, there’s lots ’bout hey who would call Mr. Callender’s death the most natural thing in Barbados. You don’t want to be arrested for drugs and taken to Oistins drug interview room. No, sir… that’s one place you don’t want to be.
Don’t worry though: the death is being investigated by the Royal Barbados Police Force, so we’re sure to get the truth. (cough, cough) Don’t forget, the RBPF investigates itself all the time and it works out just fine, so fine, fine, fine…

No confirmation on this yet folks, so take it with a grain of salt until we have more information. We’re posting it because a few little birdies told us and we know “we” have a problem with unexplained deaths in police custody, unarmed persons shot in the back of the head etc etc etc…
Hello Barbados Free Press,
Apologies for the anonymity, but you know how it is.
I have it on good authority that a man was found dead in the Drug “interview” room at Oistins Police Station yesterday.
Obviously this is not going to make it into the national press – but, seriously, when are the police here going to be held accountable for their actions.
I have heard quite a bit about their “interview” methods….. seems to be common knowledge – when will they be exposed???
