Prisoner walks off as court constables gossip and discuss latest romantic conquests

Barbados escape jail

“The decision was handed down, Williams left the dock and sat on the bench. He was not handcuffed. As officers of the court were busy going about their duties, Williams got up without drawing attention to himself and walked out of the court. At first, no one noticed he was missing. A constable subsequently went in search of Williams, but he remains wanted by Police.” Nation News

“A constable who was performing clerical duties in the courtroom apparently saw Williams just as he was about to exit and he quickly followed him. However, since he had several yards on the officer, Williams made good his escape.

It is understood that Williams turned himself in to police today, accompanied by attorney-at-law Romain Marshall.” Barbados Today

You have to love this story, even if like most folks you are not sympathetic to criminals, there’s something about what happened that brings a smile…

Last Thursday Chad Rommell Martin Williams appeared before court charged with obstructing and cursing a police officer.

Charged with cursing a police officer? Sounds like a put-up to me!

He was held without bail, but then the court police officers got to talking about all manner of things, including how they been shagging that sweet little thing in uniform that joined the courts detail a few months ago. That girl can boink… and she don’t care who with! Everybody in court heard it, so it be no secret!

So while the his guards were busy talking about how the girl can do this and do that, Chad made his way to the door and slipped out. The ‘official’ story is that some police officer noticed him on the way out and gave chase, but we understand that is not true. They never noticed he was gone for several minutes because they were talkin’ ’bout that girl. Hey… everybody talkin’ bout that girl.

Chad came to he senses the next day and turned heself in with his lawyer. Lots of new charges but under the circumstances I understand how Chad just couldn’t help heself!

Chad had a good evening, couple a splifs and a boink.

Even the police can understand that.

Elvis Graham shot but okay. Monsta Grill owner targeted in late night attack.

Damn.

Monsta Grill owner Elvis Graham was shot multiple times – reports say six times – in the wee hours after Wednesday night’s fete. He’s doing alright but one of the slugs (so says a friend) was too close to the femoral artery so will be removed after some further scans. Maybe another doctor is coming in, who knows? Nobody says anything on this rock.

Elvis Graham - shot six times, but recovering.

Elvis Graham – shot six times, but recovering.

Four thugs made the employees lie down on the ground and threatened to kill the women, to make Elvis give up the evening deposit.

But the evening deposit had already left the place, so Elvis gave up everything he had but it wasn’t enough, so they shot he in the legs three times and also in the elbow, side of the chest and face.

Elvis is a good man: kind to employees, respected by customers for being fair, and takes no nonsense from trouble-makers, but kindly and with peace-making style.

The arrest and conviction of these four gang thugs (that is the rumour, they are from the north) should be the first priority of our police.

Surround their homes. Give they one chance to surrender.

And if they come out blasting or don’t come out…

The police should kill they dead. Six shots each.

No trial necessary. You put a pistol in the mouth of a crying pregnant woman lying face down in the dirt… you deserve to die.

New Moke in production – but will higher crime rates and Bajan gangs kill sales of open vehicles?

The Moke is in production again – this time in China – and the new version remains true to the concept launched by Austin way back in 1964. The car was originally a military version of the famous Austin Mini and was loved by tourists all over the world’s tropical zones. This time it will also have electric and auto-transmission versions.

Can the new Moke reclaim its glory days when happy tourists securely roamed Bajan roads in open vehicles with nary a thought of crime or robbery?

Or will the Boscobel Toll Gang and other Bajan criminal gangs kill sales?

Barbados Police to arrange truce between two gangs – giving criminal leaders status, recognition and power.

barbados-police.jpg

Our police should be dismantling the gang leadership, not giving them status.

by Passin Thru

I read in the Nation that the police are brokering a meeting between the leaders of two rival gangs, to arrange a ‘truce’.

This is a huge mistake by the Royal Barbados Police Force.

The gangs are fighting over criminal profits and turf, areas of influence and gang status in the community. Any truce would have to involve establishing geographical boundaries for gang activities. After all, it’s a turf fight about criminal profits. What are the police thinking?

Are the police going to broker a deal where gang members stay in one are to work their crimes, and not interfere with the next gang’s turf?

This is a huge mistake that gives status to gang leaders and gangs, and unfortunately shows how impotent the police have become in the face of a crime wave the likes of which this island has never seen before. Guns, Guns Guns and our police strategy is to assist gangs to carve up territories? This is INSANE!

Our police should be causing havoc in the gangs, arresting the leaders and making criminals fear extra police attention that gang membership brings. Our police should be dismantling the gang leadership, not giving them status.

From the Nation…

AFFECTING A TRUCE between the leaders of two gangs is high on the agenda for community policing.

Head of the Chapman Lane and New Orleans Mobile Unit Sergeant Jamal Mohan said the two men are known to have a major influence on the youth of the area. Mohan was speaking earlier today at the launch of the second phase of the Reading and Learning in Harmony programme which is being done in conjunction with the Pan-American International Insurance Corporation. He said the truce would redound to making the community safer. (YB)

Acting Commissioner of Police confirms Barbados crime up 14% first quarter of 2015

barbados-police.jpg

Recipe for Social Disaster

Combine a broken court system with understaffed, under-trained & underfunded police force. Throw in some crook politicians, a general rise in societal violence, and mass unemployment.

Bake for a year in the hot Bajan sun. Top with some drug profits and rum.

It’s a wonder that the Royal Barbados Police Force was able to hold the serious crimes rise to only 14% over 2014.

Lord, we better get some mass job creation ’bout this place and soon.

Nation: Police chief confirms rise in crime against Bajans

Who made this list?

Sheri Veronica, that’s who. And she ties it to vote buying in Barbados elections.

That woman has stones.

And she’s pretty too!

Secret Withdrawal Of Bribery Charges Against Barbados Cop Stinks Of Corruption At The Highest Levels

BFP:

charles-leacock-barbados murder

Director of Public Prosecutions Charles Leacock has been in the news again lately – so we’ve revisited this past story of his corruption and unethical behaviours like using the police to threaten and extort a woman who owed him a private debt – and then withdrawing corruption charges against his same police friend.

Unlike the mainstream Barbados news media, the blogs don’t let unresolved news stories fade away. We’ll keep bringing this back into memory until this place cleans itself up… and until our corrupt DPP resigns.

I love my Barbados – but I hate the corrupt and incestuous cartel that seems to run everything.

Unholy Alliance: Sergeant Paul Vaughan (left) & Charles Leacock - Barbados Director Of Public Prosecutions

Barbados News Media Remains Silent

On September 16, 2008, Barbados Police Sergeant Paul Emmanuel Vaughn (sometimes spelled Paul Vaughan) was charged with corruptly accepting $56,500 in bribes between December 1, 2004 and April 30, 2007 from Evadney Cindy Bushell in return for protecting her from prosecution for selling pirated DVDs.

We said at the time that the Director of Public Prosecutions Charles Leacock would eventually withdraw the criminal charges against his old friend, Sergeant Vaughn, because the two corrupt public employees had previously been involved together in the Ronja Juman scandal. In short, Charles Leacock had Sergeant Vaughn and his goon squad arrest Ronja Juman in the middle of the night and subject the terrified woman to a vaginal search – over back rent she owed Charles Leacock. There was no way the DPP was going to continue the prosecution of a man who was his friend and a co-conspirator…
