Resident Says Police Ran Through Her Home, Traumatized Children

Any news about police breaking down doors and barging into peoples’ homes unannounced would practically be a non-story – not because it is right, but because it is basically an everyday occurrence. Evadne Scott, who lives on Raccoon Street Extension isn’t prepared to just accept that and move on. She claims that over the weekend armed police ran through her home searching for someone and even went into her daughter’s bedroom. Her daughter was naked at the time, but Scott says that didn’t faze the Police who then, weapons in hand, frightened two very young children in the home. She told us that the incident with Police traumatized her, causing her to black out, and she wants an explanation and an apology.

Evadne Scott, Claims Police Harassment

“We were there; my son come and hail me because we was going out. And he come and I was standing there talking to him when I see the police ina black pass by the vehicle. My son was reversing and the police were reversing too. I wondered what they were reversing for…and when I look, turning around, I see the police run through my yard. And when I come in to see, the next one run upstairs and they said they are looking for somebody that run into the yard with a red pants. And I tell them nobody noh run ina di yard with red pants because we noh see nobody with red pants. And if you di look fi anybody with red pants, yo look ina the yard; yo noh look into somebody’s house. And they went way into my daughter bedroom and she was naked. She had to grab the curtain and put it around her to prevent them from seeing her. So I curse the bad word and tell them they have to get out of the house. And then my granddaughter curse too and then they come down. When dehn get downstairs, dehn say dah ina my house dehn run too…and when dehn gone in I tell them well this dah something else. And I curse them again and I add on more on the bad word weh I give them. I curse them again and said if you di look fi somebody, run ina my yard…you look ina di yard because when they tell me dehn di look fi somebody ina di yard, I come out and I look under the lime tree, I look under the house yah and I look under mi other daughter house. And afterwards I gone out pan di street fi see if anybody deh back ah di yard. So I say dah who dehn di look for cause nobody deh ina di yard. And if anybody mi ina di yard, while they run upstairs—because they run straight upstairs—the person coulda mi come out through the yard, gone bout ih business and walk and gone or jump the fence and gone because dehn neva look ina the yard none at all…they look upstairs. When dehn come and I tell them dehn can’t do this; dehn say we di do wi duty. And I tell them but unu noh di do unu duty because unu deh ina di house. And if dehn mi announce themselves I mi wah could hear the time when I gone up there. But dehn never do no announcement of the sort. And then he have ih gun out and my granddaughter tell ahn like this…how you wah have out yo gun like that and we have children in yah, we have two baby ina di yard?
