Mayflower residents get searched; one person claims abuse

But even before patrols begin in the crime ridden areas, there are serious allegations being made following a search of a house on Mayflower Street as police crackdown on crime in the south side hotspots. At about two this afternoon, uniformed police, the anti-crime unit and the B.D.F. were in the neighborhood of Mayflower Street. About twenty officers locked down area which is known for sustained gang activity. Searches were conducted on persons and houses and according to a resident of the area; her granddaughter was sleeping at the ground floor of their wooden house when police conducted a search. One of the officers she claims fondled her thirteen year old granddaughter as she was being padded down. The grandmother and the minor spoke to the media off-camera about what transpired.

 

Voice of: Mayflower Street Resident 

“Ih noh really di affect me ina that sense deh, but dah the way how the police dehn come just now. My lee thirteen year old daughter mi deh down deh di sleep and two W along with three male officers gone in there, wake her up, tell ahn take off all of her clothes and push ih hand ina ih bread; ina ih vagina then. And I think it is totally uncalled for. What can a twelve year old do? That da craziness mien.”

 

Voice of: Minor

“The police gial take down my clothes when I mi di sleep and haul down my panty and then ih take wah gloves pan ih hand and shove up me.”

 

Daniel Ortiz, 7 News

“Miss that seems very irrational that police officer would just do something like that.”

 

Voice of: Minor

“She asked weh part my ma deh and I tell ahn my ma noh deh yah. Ih ask weh part my pa deh and I tell ahn my pa deh dah work.”

 

Mayflower, which considered a gang ridden area known as Ghost Town, has not yet been designated as a crime ridden area.

    It will probably take a while for the police to be expert in the correct protocols, and for the law-abiding citizens to know what to expect. But it is a necessary program. I just hope the police and BDF move quickly to round up the worst offenders so the streets can return to a better normal soon.

    BS!!! that’s what I say, we complain when the police don’t do their job and when they do it we still bloody complain! We have to realise most people in these areas would rather not have the po’po there, as they all have a code of silence and would rather keep things the way they are. I say crack down on the people who are known gang members as most of us can point them out ourselves.;

    Just keep going strong BDF!! Dont worry about what these people complain about. Its most likely a sour spot that you hit dat da why den di bawl!

    This is what your neighbors have brought unto you and what you get for not doing your part to report what you see to police to rid your neighborhood of scumbags.

    When ever police officers are granted rights to search without a warrant they will become part of the problem instead of part of the solution.

    Why do we have to keep doing things that other countries have tried that dioea not work? The world already know it does not work: “Power corupts and ultimate power corupts ulitmately”.

  6. Carnal Knowledge says:

    I wonder why no one is talking about it. Just imagine a police officer in your home sexually abusing your daughter while she sleeps. Is that not sick or what?

    at thirteen no girl is supposed to have fingers up their ……’s no matter how bad they are supposed to be! I am appalled by the comments saying to go ahead and not worry about the complaints.. WOW.. I hope nobody goes to YOUR home and sticks a finger up your daughter’s …….
