Teen remanded to prison

A teenager will reappear in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court in 28 days on a serious criminal matter.

It is alleged that Mahindra Alexandra Thomas, 17, of Redman Road, Deacons Road, St Michael, recklessly discharged a firearm, in a public place, in a manner that placed Calvin Osborne in danger of death or serious bodily harm.

Thomas was not required to plead to the indictable offence, which allegedly occurred on April 2. However, he told Magistrate Douglas Frederick that he was guilty of having a small quantity of marijuana in his possession on April 10.

Station Sergeant Neville Reid who is prosecuting the case, told the magistrate that police were on mobile patrol along White Park Road, St Michael when they spotted Thomas who was wanted in connection with another matter.

He was riding a bicycle. Thomas was arrested and the illicit drug was found in two greaseproof wrappings when a search was conducted.

“Officer, I find them,” he allegedly told the lawmen at the time.

Following those facts, the magistrate ordered a pre-sentencing report into Thomas’ life. The accused returns to court on May 9.

    Wish his mother was remanded too for stealing names that don’t belong to us black people. What’s wrong with you stupid mothers and these silly names?
    Why can’t we now in this enlighten period give our children names that reflect our African ancestry?

      Looks like he is of Indian descent

      Did you see the photo of the guy? He looks mixed. Chances are his father probably named him. Even if he wasn’t the case there is nothing wrong with choosing a name if you like it. The mentality you have is a divisive one.

    Find out where he sourced the firearm from. That to me is just as important as finding drugs on him.

    I agree with you – why are these black mother’s giving their children Indian names – if they want to move away from their so called European names then they should as you said be giving them African names.

    In regards to this boys behaviour he should be made to do community service plus a good prison sentence.

      @whitehill – I can understand about the name thing as a name says a lot about a people. However, as someone said he may not have a black father. The name of most concern is the surname I.E padmore, whitehill, Johnson, Phillips, blenman, fenty etc. honestly speaking u still belong to your masters children. As I said this is why we are at the bottom in every aspect of society going around in circles, like a lost, broken people. Another set of misnomers are bajan, trinidadian, Jamaican etc. They we’re all manufactured like Toby on roots. We lost our roots long ago and now kept blind owing to our politicians. Imagine naming a child adowole Smith . That dumb too.

        @Whitehill – Mind you any attempt to bring any truth or regurgitation of a “shameful” past will result in being called a racist. And our so called educators got us right where we are – in the land of the blind, deaf and dumb. John 8:8 – and ye shall know the truth and the TRUTH shall set you FREE.

        If this youngster did the crime he should do the time.

    Jennifer, Our politicians are only to blame but in a small way, if after so many years of ” free education”, so many college graduates and we’re still held down by politicians then something is wrong.
    Can we blame the politicians for the banks giving us crap on our deposits and we slide along like it was just a passing drizzle?
    If after so many years we refused to pool our resources and try to own things other than a house and SUV are politicians to blame?
    Can we continues to blame the politicians when they give multi-million dollar contracts to a select few and we skin our teets like fools?
    ….Maybe I’m a foolish racist as implied by Willie Lynch’s progeny Sherry Denny

    • Jennifer April 12, 2017 at 9:12 pm

      @Whitehill – Yes you are correct to an extent. But I ask you this – why was the education free? Who set that curriculum? Who’s books we used?? Who do the kids work for after they are indoctrinated?? leave out the few who escape into government jobs. Who agenda do we have to match up to?? i.e if I go to work in the UK I have to match them and not the other way around. The politicians are the task masters hun. Take a look and see. This hole is very deep and dark, but how much do we want to really see.

    • Jennifer April 12, 2017 at 9:34 pm

      @Whitehill – We have to blame those politicians because the small so called bajan cannot implement anything, it is legislated by the politicians. They had a duty to restore our lanquage, etc and work with the historians. The beginning of your comment at 3:10 says a lot. But teachers will say to kids and even beat them to dismiss that which actually the mother tongue of this people. No one in their right mind gets rid of their mother tongue. The church is a major problem too as they are not bringing anything from that bible to liberate this people who going in every Sunday. Mark my words unless this people face what happened to them and truly heal they will never grow economically or acquire any wealth. The Chinese dress accordingly, the indians dress accordingly, the Arabs dress accordingly to their dress codes and cultures etc. Now who do we dress like???? who do our god look like???? the brainwashing is so deep.

    He is of INDIAN descent. What crime has his mother committed? Why should she adopt AFRICAN names when she is NOT African or of such descent??? You are speaking on things which you have no knowledge of! This just shows the ignorance and intolerance of people nowadays!

  13. Ralia April 12, 2017 at 10:10 pm

    @Whitehill i dont like the fact that your are crying down
    Mothers for the names they gave their children some african names are extremely hard to pronounce and difficult to spell while others look complicated to read though im black im Eyptian by birth have a black dad white mom my name is so hard for other ppl around me to call and its difficult to hear them call it without biting their tongues

    Jennifer, some time ago i came across an article in a magazine where the writer implied that the USA was having a tougher time in some countries since the grand children of the foolish rulers hitherto were now all educated in the USA. These same children now are conducting business, their countries’ affairs from a position of westernized savvy unlike their silly old grand parents who sold out.
    If they, whomever, brought their education/curriculum to our shores, why couldn’t we have extracted from their materials what was necessary to grow and evolved and leave the rubbish where it belongs? Others have done it, are we that stupid.
    The last election, 40% of the registered voters didn’t vote, those that did, did so for personal reasons and others for an Ipads. Now, had that 40% voted for me…lol
    Christ, we can’t go on blaming others for our sorry state, we must get up and start something, if there was a period that others stood in our way, today our problems and state of affairs are purely existential.
