Prince accused of damaging 19 church windows

A 24-year-old man, who allegedly damaged several church windows, has been remanded to Dodds prison for the next 28 days.

Renison Issiah Prince, of Fairfield, Black Rock, St Michael, is accused of damaging 19 windows worth $38,055, belonging to St Mary’s Church.

When he appeared before Magistrate Douglas Fredrick today in the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, Prince was not required to plead to the offence, which allegedly took place yesterday.

However, he admitted to destroying, by fire, a waste paper basket belonging to Republic Bank (Barbados) Limited; damaging a motor van belonging to Ryan Bartlett; damaging eight windows belonging to the Crown; damaging a window belonging to Khan Chambers, as well as damaging ten windows belonging to Kishore Lawani on the same day.

The facts of the cases were not outlined by Station Sergeant Neville Reid this afternoon. However, the prosecutor urged the magistrate to remand Prince into custody based on the serious nature of the offences, and the fact that the accused was already on bail.

Magistrate Frederick ruled in the prosecution’s favour and Prince was sent up to the St Philip penal institution until November 20.

    Mental illness is a serious thing here . They need help and sending him to Dodds without giving him the help he needs will not solve the problem.

    • Charles Alleyne
      Charles Alleyne October 24, 2017 at 7:40 am

      How could a magistrate who should make sound judgement would remand this man to Dodds.Clearly he needs psychiatric evaluation.

    • Linda Fenty
      Linda Fenty October 24, 2017 at 8:21 am

      Charles Alleyne my thoughts as well. He will spend time in jail be released and come back into society to do worst. How sad it is when things and people in Barbados are left to deteriorate when it could be an easy fix.

      There was this so called mad guy who used to passed out where I live,and everyone used to watched him from a distance. One morning my neighbor’s daughter was on her way to school walking down the hill and he pulled at the school girl vagina. I saw it from inside my yard I heard him say pokey fattt, pokey boy!! I came outside told the father and we went for him. When everything finished he started crying and the father told him to go apologized to his daughter at the bus stop,so he all went to the bus stop and he was crying worst. He said,little girl I sorry ,I would never touch you again, and the father said, you mean nobody again, and he said, I wouldn’t touched you are nobody again and up to now he is a gentleman.

    A lot of people on here of are lacking empathy and just going about how much money that is spent through damages but not actually caring about the human being itself this is so typical

  19. Sonia Russell
    Sonia Russell October 24, 2017 at 3:03 am

    Why would a stain normal person waste time going around smashing classes I mean that’s ludicrous obviously he’s mentally ill but hardly anybody cares all they care about is the material and the money not the actual human being it just shows the lack of compassion you all have towards each other yes it’s bad what he’s dead I’m not condoning it but that’s not a normal behaviour

    Anyway I always remember when I first looked into Barbados when I was 12 in the 70s black people will still having judges outside in the yard if my mum and dad this they could even go in the church because only white people were going in there you’ll need to emancipate yourself from mental slavery sometimes when I read comments I can see a lot of the Colonial influence in that and some of you lot and it’s not nice we are Africans originally we were not naturally or originated from Barbados a mentality and everything that has been changed and distorted but we seek not to learn how we originally should be but yet follow the white Man’s wife

    Rancorous people mine how you step you may one day loose your mind. Stop judging other in your comfort zone. If you know GOD stop abusing him they are sane people who spend over 38 thousand Barbados dollars on a freakin monument he is normal as crap

  38. Donild Trimp October 24, 2017 at 9:22 am

    Some of you posters here makes me sick to the stomach.

    This is a young man who clearly needs psychiatric help and the majority of you on here are posting crap instead of showing empathy for the young man who is clearly ill.

    It is within the Magistrate’s power to send individuals such as this young man for observation and assessment at the psychiatric hospital, why was he sent to a penal institution until November 20?

    Can anyone in Barbados give a rational and logical explanation for sending a mentally ill person to a penal institution? Please don’t come with “it is for safety reasons”. There is too much data out there to debunk that fallacy. Mentally ill persons should not be punished like ordinary criminals.

    The professionals at the psychiatric hospital are more suited to deal with mentally ill persons than prison guards at a penal institution.

    Magistrate Douglas Fredrick, you need to seek some professional help yourself. Upgrade your education on how to deal with mentally ill individuals.

    Just some free professional advice. This one is on me.

    Smh !!!!!!!!!

    WHO in his/her right mind is constantly destructive? Through lack of knowledge/understanding, many mentally ill people are viewed/treated as criminals … so I’m hoping this young man gets the help he needs!

  40. Bobotheclown October 24, 2017 at 1:01 pm

    It does seem to me….Bo that many of the above are more mental than the accused. I once thought Barbados had one of the highest literacy rate in the Western Hemisphere? Some body got fooled.

  41. Helicopter (8P) October 24, 2017 at 1:39 pm

    Loss his R H away in JAIL . Place him in the Brutus cell !!

  42. Ossie Moore October 24, 2017 at 1:54 pm

    This time should be Lion Man time because he would not like to know that the church he attended so many Christmas Music Recitals has been desecrated by such an illiterate piece of crapp. I as a Barbadian have no tollerence for such persons. If this is what Barbadians at age 24 may seen tollerant, believe you me you will become a doomed race and extintcion fast acomming on its way!

  43. Milli Watt October 24, 2017 at 4:59 pm

    he shuddah do that in ISIS controlled territory

  44. Belfast October 24, 2017 at 6:39 pm

    By the looks on his face, many are determining that he has mental issues.
    He looks like your typical Barbados politician touting for votes.
