Qatar Police Use Whips On Asian Labourers “Because The Asians Do Not Understand”

“You will never see me accepting another contract in the Middle East. I don’t care how much money I’m offered next time, it is not worth the indignity of being looked at like I’m some sort of lower lifeform by people who don’t even wash their hands after doing the necessary.”

BFP’s Robert talking about working as an aircraft maintenance engineer under contract in Middle East countries.

Whipping Victims Chosen By Race

The Middle East if full of contract workers. Some, like BFP’s Robert, are well-paid professionals who put up with the nonsense as fair trade for the money. Younger workers are also attracted by the novelty and a sense of adventure which, according to Robert, soon fades.

But 90% of the foreign workers in the Middle East can rightly be described as low-end labourers and little more than slaves. Some really are slaves. There is a racial hierarchy enforced everywhere with Arabs at the top, followed by whites with blacks and asians at the bottom of the pile.

When Robert saw the following article online he said we must write about it, so here you go…

Souq Shock For Asian Bachelors

ASIAN bachelors were beaten with whips and even kicked during a heavy-handed police operation to prevent them from entering Doha’s popular souq areas yesterday.
Several encounters, witnessed by Gulf Times, saw Heritage Police Officers using stick-like instruments to herd labourers away from cordoned areas along Grand Hamad Avenue.

When one officer was asked why such force was being used he replied: “They are not allowed inside this family area.” He then explained that whips were being employed “because they do not understand”. 
Although policemen usually patrol the Grand Hamad area on Fridays, they tend to be plainclothes officers who do not carry weapons such as those on show yesterday.
 Shockingly, Gulf Times saw one officer using his whip on five separate occasions within a ten-minute period, even running to catch people before hitting them. 
Other appalled witnesses said they had seen labourers being kicked by the officers if they did not move quickly enough to exactly where they were told.

16-Year Old Russian-American Girl Murdered In Barbados: Russian Mob Revenge or Maniac?

Barbados Advocate - Monday November 17, 2008

Barbados Advocate - Monday November 17, 2008

The horrific death of 16-year old Russian-American Anna Druzhinina at Palmers Plantation House in St. John has people wondering what the real story is. The Royal Barbados Police Force has a person in custody but at the time of this writing no charges have been laid.

Any time a person with a Russian background is involved as a victim or perpetrator in Barbados thoughts of the Russian mob are bound to be on people’s minds. In the late 1980’s and early 1990’s dirty Russian money flooded the world’s offshore banking centers as criminal organisations profited during the chaos that followed the breakup of the USSR. Barbados saw its fair share of the suspicious Russian transactions and nouveau riche during that time, but of late we have seen fewer of the heavy-set, quiet Russian men (always wearing dark glasses even at night) on the island.

One of our Deputy Prime Ministers was known to have many strange Russian friends and took an unusual number of trips to Europe during their time in power. Even now the Russian and Eastern European crime syndicates have their footholds in Caribbean prostitution.

Keltruth Blog has some thoughts on the recent murder of Anna Druzhinina, and one truth comes through: if the circumstances of the murder are anything but crystal clear in the public mind, Bajans will start to think about those rough men with Russian accents and dark glasses who were so new to our island fifteen years ago.
