Holding press conferences have become a love affair with the script in toe and the bull shit becoming the monologue repeatedly.
Please take the time to read the story that follows after this latest piece in the Jamaica Gleaner. This youngster was charged in the death of a female and you will see the heading of that piece when the commentary was posted over 1 year ago dated Saturday 11 June 2016. Is there a coincidence that Pottinger bailed out the said youth that was charged in the murder of this female; who in turn ended up taking his ( Pottinger’s) life? Do you believe in coincidences? All I am saying is, the plot will forever thicken when you understand and recognise where you are living. You are living in Jamroc. The rules of engagement are different to that of 1st world countries namely the USA where we love to draw comparisons. Pay attention to the groups who jump out immediately and chant for justice, due diligence, no tables to be left un-turned etc. Do not pay too much attention to those who regardless of their dollars are deemed ‘not of our class’ according to the intellectuals on certain cases. Pay more attention to the silence from certain quarters as silence speaks volumes.
When you know what you know, you may choose to be silent. When you know what you know, you may choose to flip the script with a view to mislead. The outcome of both scenarios usually remain the same, not one striking solution is ever sought much less invoked which would cause the citizens of this country to have faith in our judicial system.
Justice remains elusive to the majority. Therefore seek justice from the one above who can guarantee you eternity and live each day on planet earth as if it is your last.

Bad on bail – Fresh concerns as news emerges that ‘3D’s’ alleged killer was on the road despite being charged with two crimes
(Jamaica Gleaner) Sunday | September 10, 2017 | 9:00 AM
News that the man charged with the killing of fashion designer Dexter ‘3D’ Pottinger was out on bail for two crimes has renewed the debate about the ease with which suspected criminals are offered bail and the number of offences they commit while awaiting their day in court.
Minister of National Security Robert Montague has repeatedly expressed concern about the number of persons granted bail who are then linked to other serious crimes, but the data he provided has not been confirmed by the police.
The Police High Command is now collating the data as it tries to determine the number of persons charged and offered bail by the courts who are involved in other major crimes.
“I am aware that an audit is being done by the Criminal Investigation Branch, but I can’t say exactly how far the audit is at this time,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Clifford Blake told The Sunday Gleaner recently.
“I can confirm, however, that there have been instances where persons continue to commit crimes while on bail,” added Blake.
He was supported by senior cops in the Kingston Eastern Police Division, where a bloody gang war is playing out in Rockfort and other areas.
“You have persons getting bail for more than one major crime. You will have a man charged with shooting and illegal possession of a firearm, and he will be reporting to the station on bail for three different cases,” said one senior cop who asked that his name be withheld.
“Some persons in the Rockfort violence are themselves reporting to the station on other issues. It might not be for the same thing but for different crimes and in different areas,” added the cop.
Deputy superintendent in charge of crime in the Kingston Eastern Division, Christopher Brown, told our news team that while he could not provide numbers, he was also aware of persons charged with one crime being rearrested by his team.
“We have credible information to suggest that there are a number of individuals who are on bail who sadly become victims of violence or become the perpetrators themselves,” said Brown.
“There are other instances where we hear of persons committing crimes, but you may not have the evidence to arrest them for those crimes.”
In the meantime, Senior Superintendent Howard Chambers, who heads the Kingston Western Police Division, said the problem is one he faces in the area under his command.
FACTORY FOR CRIMINALS
“Say, for instance, that for the month we have 20 arrests, then we will find that out of that 20, we have about three or four who are rearrested for other crimes,” said Chambers, who described his division as the factory for criminals gangs.
“Once they are reporting to the station on condition of bail you will find that they are still involved in criminality but that they may not be so active.
“If it is a gang, then the leader might tell a youth to go do something (crime) because the other man is already reporting,” added Chambers.
Since taking on the security portfolio last year, Montague has repeatedly pointed to the rules relating to bail as one of the factors impacting the country’s crime numbers.
“Up to March this year, some 143 persons who were on bail were also charged with murder while they were on bail for another serious offence,” Montague declared while addressing a function recently.
“So since bail is a right, we are going to enter into some discussions with the Ministry of Justice to ask that for some categories of crime the persons on bail should wear an electronic bracelet as a condition of bail. So we know where they are in case a crime is committed,” added Montague, who has repeatedly expressed concern about the crimes committed by persons on bail.
Excerpts from The Bail Act:
Entitlement to bail
1. Subject to the provisions of this act, every person who is charged with an offence shall be entitled to be granted bail by a court, a justice of the peace or a police officer, as the case may require.
2. A person who is charged with an offence shall not be held in custody for longer than 24 hours without the question of bail being considered.
3. Subject to Section 4 (4), bail shall be granted to a defendant who is charged with an offence which is not punishable with imprisonment.
4. A person charged with murder, treason or treason felony may be granted bail only by a resident magistrate or a judge.
Circumstances in which bail may be denied:
Where the offence or one of the offences in relation to which the defendant is charged or convicted is punishable with imprisonment, bail may be denied to that defendant in the following circumstances:
The court, a justice of the peace or police officer is satisfied that there are substantial grounds for believing that the defendant, if released on bail, would:
(i) fail to surrender to custody;
(ii) commit an offence while on bail; or
(iii) interfere with witnesses or otherwise obstruct the course of justice, whether in relation to himself or any other person.
Killed During, In Between Or After A Sex Act? – This Is Perplexing At Best
What a terrible price to pay for an indiscretion when one already has a partner. This case may bear more questions than truthful answers I suspect as dead man tell no tales. Where is the boyfriend in all of this? Is he grieving the loss of his girlfriend? Will he be called by any of the attorneys to answer questions pertaining to her supposedly condition that causes her to pass out in the past?
We are told that during an ‘adult’ activity, an argument ensued, the woman was kicked to the ground, then strangled. What could this woman possibly have said or done to this 20 year old that would cause such a downright cruel, degrading reaction? Sad to say, tools used in communicating between couples are often times beyond degrading. Yet it is common and acceptable by both sexes. I am of the firm belief that if I can class you in a demeaning, derogatory manner, then it is high time I ask one major yet simple question, why are we together? While you can certainly rebound from certain struggles or issues in a relationship. It is my belief that when the art of communicating becomes excessively colourful with expletives and description of the female/male anatomy being thrown at like a dart board; I say check yourself before you wreck yourself. The physical behaviour cast upon the human being which by the way if it was cast upon a four legged creature would result in lock down in certain regions, should cause one to seriously evaluate the purpose of the alliance.
Where does friends with benefits start and end I might ask? Does such a frivolous escapade extends to either parties having an existing relationship? Is there a moral compass in living and having fun? We are yet to be told the age of the deceased female, yet we know the bloke was 20 years old. The facts of the case thus far is this. The female had a boyfriend. They were involved in an adult activity. Kicked her to the ground he surely did and strangled her. To death??? That is to be determined. He later stole her boyfriend’s laptop.
Somehow it is fair to say, this female did not believe that day would be her last on Planet Earth. Also, I might add, the Creator should not be blamed for all deaths. He has given us free reign on planet earth to choose the course we will take even though death is a reality for us all. Likewise, I do believe in the Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde syndrome. It is for us to hopefully have sufficient time to meet both in relationships, rendezvous, live and yet live, friends with benefits lifestyle, before it costs us our lives.
Welder remanded in murder case
(Jamaica Observer) Saturday, June 11, 2016
Twenty-year-old Romario Brown of Stony Hill was arrested and charged with murder following the death of Alexia Bepatt on April 8.
The young man is also accused of stealing a laptop belonging to the dead woman’s boyfriend and was charged with larceny from the dwelling.
The court heard that Brown went to visit the woman and both were engaged in adult activities when an argument developed.It is alleged that, during the argument, Brown kicked the woman off the bed and squeezed her throat.
Bepatt was later found partially naked, lying unconscious at her home in Mona. She was rushed to the University Hospital of the West Indies where she was pronounced dead. According to the prosecutor, a post-mortem report has since revealed that Bepatt died from manual strangulation.
The prosecutor also told Parish Judge Chester Crooks that the accused had fled the scene and was caught after he was picked up on a camera leaving the premises.
The prosecutor said the crown was of the view that Brown would “take away himself” if he was granted bail.
But Brown’s attorney, Davorona Wilson — in renewing her bail application — maintained that Bepatt was alive when her client left the premises.
“When he left the house, she was crying,” Wilson told the court.
Wilson also told the court that two individuals have indicated that the woman suffered from a condition in which she frequently passed out and as such indicated that she needed to see the post-mortem report to see if manual strangulation was, in fact, the actual cause of death.
She also pointed out that her client had surrendered to the police when he was contacted and will not interfere with the witnesses.
The judge subsequently told her that he was in agreement for her to have a look at the post mortem report. However, he said he could not grant the accused bail and remanded him until July 18.
