Court appearance for Jolly Roger shooter

A 26 year old man today appeared in the District A Magistrates’ Court to answer charges of causing serious bodily harm and use of a firearm.

This follows Thursday’s shooting incident aboard the Jolly Roger cruise vessel that left 23 year old Rashidi Branch of Eden Lodge, St Michael nursing a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Damian Pinder of 4th Avenue, Pickwick Gap, St Michael  was subsequently charged in connection with the shooting and appeared in the District A Magistrates ‘Court today to answer the charges.

In the wake of this  incident, lawmen have issued a reminder to pleasure crafts owners that it is their responsibility to provide a safe environment for their patrons to socialize. “The force stands ready to assist the operators to ensure that the regulations are adhered to. Owners should employ effective security measures to remove the threat of injury to persons who attend events on their crafts and to prohibit the use of illegal drugs,” the notice from police said.

    Get those metal detector hand held wands that you can hover around the body. If it goes off them then go.from there. Get to the crotch and it keeps beeping then he has a problem. Should be a cop nearby and they can do a search. Get these precautiins and steps in place.

    I think the whole incident is somehow related to the dock. You see, the boat was at sea and the shooter wanted to be in the dock. Now, I am pretty sure he’ll have his days in the dock.

    The police in Barbados need to enforce themselves on a population of people who are getting as lawless as in most black countries.
    Ramdon stop and search , is very effective weapon, because it happens any where and every where at any time.
    Lawlessness brings corruption this is where Barbados is heading, people who commit crimes are call criminals and they need locking up, for longer periods, if we need another prison build it, that would be easier than the said tourist we depend on stop coming to barbados. but as like everything, bajans are praying and waiting for divine intervention , but I forgot, Barbados was healed by Benny hinn.
