St Peter man accused of cursing cop

COURT TODAY BLOCKA 27-year-old Mount Brevitor, St Peter man appeared in court today charged with using indecent language to a police officer during Sunday’s Reggae on the Beach show.

Kwesi Rasheed Ramsay was granted $4,000 bail with one surety and no conditions attached, but has to reappear on August 12 in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.

Ramsay, a shop assistant, allegedly swore at the officer while at Pirate’s Cove Beach, Bay Street, on April 24, 2016.

He is also accused of resisting Acting Police Sergeant Gladstone Worrell in the execution of his duties and of assaulting Worrell.

Ramsay, who is represented by attorney-at-law Arthur Holder, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

    Why is cursing a cop actually an offence. This is pure BS.

    “Kwesi Rasheed Ramsay was granted $4,000 bail with one surety and no conditions attached, but has to reappear on August 12 in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court.”
    Authoritarian regime ugly head has shown again. What about free speech and the right to express your opinion? This is more important and the people should understand what is happening here.
    Is this South Africa apartheid?
    As long as he didn’t assaulted the policeman, then no charges should have be brought. A police officer is part of the entity and doesn’t have feelings. The US supreme court has ruled that in a case as a human right. The United Nation has that as international law under the freedom of expression and speech.
    The problem is why is the courts of Barbados not following international law and protecting the people from an oppressive regime?
    To Set bail at $4000 shows a bias justice system crushing decent. Where is the victim and can everyone else goes to court when someone cursed them. When did it become a criminal matter from a civil? When was it a crime to hurt someone feelings with your opinion?
    The people of Barbados should be worried about their rights because this case is about oppression. What freedom does the people have when dealing with civil servants in authority?
    This a clear sign that we have masters and disrespectful people would be crushed.. Is this happening in a democratic society? hmmmm…

      What is wrong is taking a person freedom for a civil dispute. The magistrate isn’t following his oath but instead creating a dictatorship regime. Democracy is only as good as its justice system quoted from Nelson Mandela. Remember he was in prison for terrorism and the juridical system found he guilty.
