…But, Will Douglas Grant Still be Charged for Firearm Offense?

Chester Williams

The complaint by Ferguson was withdrawn on Tuesday evening after he agreed with Grant not to proceed with the criminal matter. This afternoon, ACP Chester Williams explained the possible scenarios.

 

ACP Chester Williams, Regional Commander, Eastern Division South

“Well, the truth is that a person who is the victim of a crimedo have the right to decide whether or not they want to pursue that charge or charges before a court of law. If the victim in the matter decides that they do not want to pursue, the police has one of two options. One, the police can still proceed with charges and have the complainant go to court and withdraw the matter or the police can get a further statement from the complainant, attach it to the case file  and sent it to the D.P.P. and let her decide whether or not they will still continue the charges against the individual.”

    So in other words Chester is not going to do a damn thing. It is a violation of the law to threaten someone with a firearm whether or not the victim chooses to file charges. Oh I forgot, politics involved here. Sickening.

    there is a charge for discharging firearm in public… so dont feel like if there is no charge for the man… dont think that people are dumb… that man can still be charge,,, it will be the police against the accuse. no complianant nedd.. so dont think u can smart the public stupid chester.

    There are other offences that could have been levied. You all know for a fact that one should not be armed with a firearm whilst drinking. How can alcohol play a role in having someone pull out a firearm. The least that should be done is the revocation of the license.
