Eston Young

In previous states of emergency, there have been reports of several individuals being caught in the dragnet used to take gang members off the streets. Eston Young, a father of two young children, feels that he will now be a target of the police department; that even though he is a law-abiding citizen, he will be profiled as a member of a gang.


Eston Young, Claims Police Profiling

“Mister Williams yo need fi do yo job di right way. And you can’t just di pick up anybody or make your police dehn di pick up anybody. You need to know who di do this or get yo proper information before you go for anybody. That dah all I want because I want that when yo see me pan di street, unu please noh harass me because I dah noh wah threat.  I dah noh wah gang member so I noh want be a part of that state of emergency, I noh do nothing fi be a part of that state of emergency.
