Ninja Man accused of sacrilege

Well-known street character Ninja Man will spend the next three weeks on remand at the Psychiatric Hospital after appearing in court on a charge of committing sacrilege.

It is alleged that the 60-year-old, of no fixed place of abode, whose real name is Anthony FitzPatrick Lynch entered St Michael’s Cathedral, a place of divine worship, sometime between August 6 and 8 and stole a $125 crucifix and a $25 surge protector belonging to the church.

“Not me, I get beat to say I carry way a cross,” said Ninja Man, who was not required to plead to the offence.

When it came time for bail Station Sergeant Neville Reid objected on the grounds that the accused man had no fixed place of abode. He also said that based on the seriousness of the offence, there was need to protect society.

However, Ninja Man’s lawyer Dr Waldo Ramsey told the court “I think he needs care . . . he has lost weight and his condition is deteriorating”.

The accused man will make a second appearance before Magistrate Douglas Frederick on October 18 after being assessed by doctors at the Black Rock, St Michael institution.

    Sad that there are cases like this in Barbados. Yes it appears that the gentleman needs help and I hope he gets it.

    Wow. Barbados!! We need to be protected from someone who allegedly stole a cross and a surge protector but not from a senior police officer who had illegal possession of bullets. Steupse…….

    Imagine this high class foolishness! Barbadians need to be protected from a man who clearly isn’t altogether sane but can’t be protected from protected from prison officers giving drugs to criminals or shady policemen. But I beat real bad though! How Barbados get so Backwards though?

      • Jennifer September 28, 2017 at 8:38 am

        ninja man should be given an award for trying to wake the willfully dead, and blind.

    • O. Walrond September 28, 2017 at 9:43 am

      You are making some serious claims here. Are you doing so with evidence? Where is the proof that the man you refer to caused anybody’s death?
      Do you know whether he was a member of a rifle club who was negligent in following the rules set out in the law?

    Perhaps the church will offer Ninja Man some prayer, solace and forgiveness. What say you, Rev Morris?

  9. Thunder September 28, 2017 at 9:02 am

    The church should be shame,this was the perfect opportunity for the church to show this man the love of God,he is a well known character in this country,I am not saying that stealing is right,but when people are homeless,may be struggling with mental issues, hunger and other pressures of life,they will do what they can to survive.
    A cross can be replaced but a soul cannot,and just for the record Jesus died for ninja man too,homeless people need consistent care, and if they are taken care of they won’t he forced to commit such crimes,I would have forgiven him and still adopted him,the church must reach out to such individuals, and where possible avoid taking them before the law courts.
    I do not think that Jesus would have treated him this way,but then again,churches today are a far cry from the examples of our lord and saviour Jesus Christ.

    • Jennifer September 28, 2017 at 10:30 am

      No disrespect thunder, but u need to get your mind right. The church is not here for that. It is a mare PACIFIER and CONDONER.

      • rae September 28, 2017 at 8:28 pm


  10. Jlo September 28, 2017 at 9:13 am

    Thunder I agree with u 100% .. what a shame to read this

  11. charjoy September 28, 2017 at 10:26 am

    Sargeant Reid you serious???!! Barbadians want protecting from we beloved street boy Ninga aaaaaahaaaaa? He is part of we culture and folklore; what is not of our culture, however, are bullets, guns, and drugs and it’s from those menaces we need protecting. Ninga stole a cross to perform an exorcism to rid the country of the big wig crime lords who tek over, so rather than lock he up, police should consult with him cause at least he got a strategy.

    @ Jennifer –
    I think the Police are the smart people here.

    Everyone in Barbados knows that Ninji Man is in need of psychiatric help.

    The Police could have easily walked away from this one. Ninja man will now get the help he needs from a top notch psychiatrist.

    When he returns to court for his next appearance he will be remanded to the Psychiatric Hospital where he will get the necessary care.

    Daily baths, food and the requisite medication.

    Everybody wins.

    • Donild Trimp September 28, 2017 at 3:14 pm

      I failed to mention and a roof over his head.

    • Jennifer September 28, 2017 at 3:25 pm

      @Donild – listen hun, look up the definition of a psychopath, a sociopath and antisocial disorders in a DSM5. Then think who u can put under those categories. Think CAREFULLY. u will see twisters.

      “top notch psychiatrist”- funny. da meds. why he ain’t cure

  14. Donild Trimp September 28, 2017 at 3:15 pm

    All free of cost.

    • hcalndre September 28, 2017 at 6:49 pm

      Donild Trimp; Free of cost? why do you pay taxes? because the MOFailure say so, nothing is free.

  15. Donild Trimp September 28, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    @Junnifer –

    Come on Jennifer, you know that the meds does not cure anything, they control the symptoms.

    Dissapointing Jen.

    • Jennifer September 28, 2017 at 5:15 pm
