Police Officer allegedly terrorizes family on New Years

In the south, a police officer in Independence Village stands accused of terrorizing the family of Richard Logan on New Year’s night. The cop, Logan claims, was intoxicated and was looking for his nephew with whom he had a confrontation several months ago. The rampage started at the home of his niece, whose house was damaged before she and her children were threatened. According to Logan, the officer then went to his house, where he too was threatened and his family was endangered. Today Logan contacted News Five via phone to make his story public because he says the officer is a known trouble maker, who harasses residents whenever he drinks.

“Even though he has threatened you, what made you decide to come to the media?”

“Well, I si nothing noh di happen and he di threaten me so I want everybody be pan alert. Dis di happen fi too long now man. Everybody dah bally beat up so I decide well I have to go so if something happen to me well at least I done report I know weh di go on cause if I report to di police dehn and dehn noh do nothing den nobody wah know di man di threaten me.”

“Do you know if he has found your nephew—the one he was looking for—since this happened?”

“Every day he pass bally right front ah ih face but only when ih drunk ih go look fi bally. But I ask di inspector personally if dehn got any charge fi dis young man back deh, ih seh no we noh got no charge fi he. Ih look like dah wah old beef, few months ago weh he and bally got, he di try use ih job fi get to bally.”

The officer’s name is being withheld because when we contacted Independence Police, we were told that no one was available to comment on the allegations or any official investigation into the incident.

    Crispin is their boss, why has he not responded or sent Fitzroy out to stand there & talk but say nothing. If this story is true & it has a ring of truth to it, that Officer needs to be fired & prosecuted. We cannot have officers who believe they are above the law policing any community or they are no better than the thugs who now terrorize our streets.

  2. Robert says:

    Badges and booze don’t mix. Doug Singh must clean up all the police formations, get rid of the bad apples. Or replace him with someone who will do something positive.

    YUP but yet our foolish lawmakers want to pass laws that will make this corrupt PD have more powers and the citizenry just be like sheep…

    Hey man call steven seagall he will fix all those police madafires who think they are above the law including high ranking officers or ministers/ oh pardon me (sinisters)

  5. aha says:

  6. jose says:

    all a them da the same that is why he had not been arrested and charge. the same thing the go on with san ignacio prosecuter

  7. vigilante justice 316 says:

    I believe what this man is saying. Some police da Dangriga take bribe and payment from certain bar owners to harrass people they have beef with. If they don’t pay them with money then they give the police free drinks when they go to the bar/club. No wonder this officer is an alcholic and a bully. Not only that but he is a criminal with a badge and should be taken out an whipped then sent to jail. How dare he say he don’t give a F* if he kill people picney that maddaF$%&&a!
