Unnecessary Use of Force by Police in Ladyville Shooting?

Tiffara Tillett

Police say that a criminal and internal investigation has been launched into this shooting incident. Usher remains hospitalized and is in need of surgery. But before he does that, he needs four pints of blood. Tillett made it clear that even though they were involved in a domestic altercation, she was not pressing charges and believes unnecessary force was used.

“We were fighting yes, so I called them to assist me so that I could move from the house and I was at my neighbours house that they found me and remove me from there. I already had my stuff dem pack and ready to go. So, the point is it still nuh come up to why they use wah weapon; why they use wah gun fi shot he. I nuh di say defend miss. I just di say pahn my behalf ih neva right that they shot ah and even if he mi di give trouble to the police, hand cuff ah and ker ah or fire wah warning shot so he know that he deh pahn warning but not even that he do. I ask dem what unu wah do with he afta he get betta and deh say deh have wah charge fi he. I ask dem fi what cause he nuh do dem anything and charge he fi what and fi why.”

“Maybe for assaulting you? Or you don’t want to press charges again?”


Tiffara Tillett

“But….miss. I told them I am not pressing anything no charges against him. I just wanted to leave. To my case, I would prefer they be penalized.”


Andrea Polanco

“Some might say, Tiffara deh police gone out deh gone help you?”


Tiffara Tillett

“Yes, ma’am deh gone help me. Inna my case deh did gone help me but deh neva have to use a weapon.”
