Through ‘domestication’ it is believed that every woman must be a mother and every man must become a father. I would say look at child care, social behaviour and as ‘ole’ time people used to say ‘u have nuh broughtupsey’………………..
We have been in shock on the Island with the recent murders of two 14 year olds, however, our memories tend to be short as the frequency of cruelty cast upon our children causes you to focus on the latest. So here we have this evil act perpetrated by the biological father. I would not even mention the step mother as it is my belief that the biological parent sets the tone, creates the environment that will dictate how his ‘own’ is treated. Too many of us love to cast blame on the ‘other person’. So I am hearing conversations like this, ‘a di step madda mek di man treat him pickney suh’. If is one thing I abhor is when grown folks deflect from themselves and announce ‘I was caught up’, ‘dem hook mi’, ‘a him, a she, a nuh mi’…………………………….Stop utter foolishness!!!!!!!
The father who was 19 years old at the time of her birth is a wicked, evil man who chose a partner to comfort his home comparable to him while is own flesh and blood was made to suffer…………………………………….
Couple charged with neglect of disabled woman denied bail on her birthday
Tuesday, March 10, 2015 (Jamaica Observer)
ST ANN, Jamaica – The St Ann couple charged with the neglect of a 20-year-old disabled woman, who was found in conditions at her home which has been described as “inhumane”, was denied bail when they appeared before the St Ann’s Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
Jerold Campbell, a 39-year-old labourer of Windsor Height, and his common-law wife Melody Murphy, a 42-year-old shopkeeper, were charged on Sunday after Campbell’s daughter, who is celebrating her birthday today, was found under a cellar at their home in Windsor Height last Thursday.
Reports are that about 2:45 pm last Thursday, the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) was alerted to a situation in Windsor Heights. The police travelled to the area where the disabled woman was found under a cellar in unhygienic condition. The woman was at first believed to be a child because of her small physique; however, later checks revealed she is an adult.
The investigating officer disclosed in court that when the young woman was found, she hid under the cellar in fear.
“She wasn’t responding to us,” the investigating officer told the court during her outline of the incident.
She said the woman was crouched under the cellar where it appeared she has been for some time. According to the officer, the woman was not chained, but was unable to walk. She said the woman was very dirty and appeared to have been in that condition for days.
The young woman remains in hospital and is said to be making significant progress.
The two are to return to court on Tuesday, March 17.
