NOISE erupted in East Kingston yesterday as residents voiced their disgust at how the police were handling the investigation into Wednesday night's deadly shootings by gunmen in the area.
The residents claimed that since the attack, which left three men dead and several others injured, young men in the area were being unfairly targeted while it appeared that no attempt was being made to collar the killers

"Since gunmen killed three men in the area on Wednesday police dem come in di area and a pressure di youth dem, but them not going out to look for who carried out the attacks in the area," said one man, who was among the dozens of residents protesting on Windward Road.
They threatened to block the thoroughfare if the police did not change their approach.
Yesterday, the police said that the protest followed the detention of two men from the area. They, however, assured the residents that their rights would be upheld as they continue their investigation.
"What happened is that police went to the area and apprehended two men," a senior detective told the Jamaica Observer. "Since then we have visited the area and spoken to the residents and assured them that we will be working to maintain a professional relationship with residents but at the same time will also be executing our duties to ensure that law and order is maintained," he added. more

WEST INDIES CRICKET....Dwayne Bravo: All players in the loop, shocked at Marlon Samuels' statement if true

Saturday, October 25, 2014 | 1:21 AM    
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad - 
West Indies ODI captain Dwayne Bravo, in a letter sent to the media yesterday, stated that all correspondences sent and decisions taken by the West Indies squad in India was “in concert with all of the members of the squad” and he was nominated and accepted the responsibility to correspond on behalf of the players on the tour.

He also noted that Marlon Samuels “contributed vigorously to the discussions held and indicated clearly, at that time, that he would stand with any decision taken by the team,” contrary to media reports that the batsman wanted nothing to do with one-day team’s plan to abandon the tour.
The decision of the team was to withdraw their services following a bitter wrangle with the Wavell Hinds-led West Indies Players Association (WIPA) over the new terms of the recently negotiated Collective Bargaining Agreement, which they have claimed results in a drastic reduction in their earnings.
Bravo’s letter comes in response to media reports which he said seemed to be concentrating on him. “Much of the reporting on this situation seems to be concentrating primarily on me and not on the fact that the action taken was in concert with all of the members of the squad,” the all-rounder wrote. more

Mel Cooke, Gleaner Writer Published: Friday | October 24, 2014 
On Monday, October 27, this year's edition of the annual Peter Tosh Symposium takes place in the Multifunctional Room of the Main Library,University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona campus. Put on by the Department of Sociology, Psychology and Social Work as well as the UWI National Heritage Month Celebration Committee, both at Mona, it is titled Peter Tosh - Protagonist, Activist, and Pan-Africanist: A Focus on the Man, The Music, The Message and the Herb.

It starts at 6 p.m. and admission is free.
The title suggests a multi-dimensional assessment of Tosh, who was killed in Barbican, St Andrew, on September 11, 1987, and Dr Michael Barnett confirmed this as he previewed what speakers Miguel Lorne, Taitu Heron, Dr Clinton Hutton and Evah Gordon will be addressing.
"Lorne will be speaking about the comparisons between the Mario Deane case and Tosh," Barnett said, noting that Tosh was also arrested for a spliff and ended up being badly beaten in the Half-Way Tree Police Station. Unlike Deane, "he survived, but at the end of the day it is based on the argument that it was a spliff."
Noting Tosh's renowned advocacy for the legalisation of marijuana, Barnett reflected on his Legalise It album of nearly four decades ago. "We are looking at where we are now with the apparent decriminalisation soon to come into effect, if it will make any tangible difference," Barnett said. more

Addressing students at Montego Bay Community College in St James after a tour of the facilities on Wednesday, Min said because of the financial "miracle" that the Government has performed, the local economy is turning in a positive direction.
"By our forecast, the growth this year will be stronger than last year, and even more important, for next year the growth will be stronger than this year. Meanwhile, the fiscal deficit will drop to almost zero... so I think it's absolutely a miracle. It's a great achievement by the Jamaican Government," he said.
Min, who is in Jamaica attending the two-day 2014 High Level Caribbean Financial Forum which concludes today at Montego Bay Convention Centre in Rose Hall, St James, said the IMF is committed to moving forward with Jamaica.
"For the future, the key issue is we need the support of growth... we need the young people, we need the leaders of the future," he told the students.
Min, along with other IMF representatives and Finance Minister Dr Peter Phillips, Bank of Jamaica Governor Brian Wynter, and finance ministry officials toured the Electrical Technology and Food Technology departments of the community college, where they observed final-year students participating in laboratory activities. more

IN JAMAICA: Rockfort residents deny turf war behind murders - say gangs demanding rent from homeowners....On Wednesday evening, Loxley Brown, Terrence Dixon and 23-year-old Aboyonei Stratchan, also known as Abba of Norman Terrace, were shot dead by gunmen

BY KIMMO MATTHEWS Observer staff reporter matthewsk@jamaicaobserver.com  Friday, October 24, 2014

According to the residents, the shooting of the men had its genesis in an extortion racket operated by gunmen whose ability to engage in criminal activities outside the east Kingston community has been stanched by police anti-crime measures.
"Police a seh a turf war; no turf war not taking place in here, extortion is at the heart of all of what is going on," said one woman, who requested anonymity.
"Police seh dem clamp down on extortion; nothing don't go so. It went away for a while, but it slowly returning," she added as she stood with a group of residents. "What is happening in this community is more than meets the eye."
On Wednesday evening, 32-year-old Loxley Brown of Harbour Road in Rockfort; 31-year-old Terrence Dixon, otherwise called Fidel, also from Harbour Road; and 23-year-old Aboyonei Stratchan, also known as Abba of Norman Terrace, were shot dead by gunmen at a bar in the community.
When the Jamaica Observer asked why the men were killed, the residents said the gunmen shot them to send a message that no one should resist their demands for cash.
They explained that the killings did not necessarily mean that the three men were approached for money, instead, the gunmen were sending a warning to the community. more
