What’s that fuss; prisoners brawl on the prison bus

Norman McKenzie

It was an unusual spectacle at the Magistrate’s Court this morning when a fight broke out on the prison bus. Prison officers could not diffuse the situation and police officers posted at the court had to intervene. The reason for the brawl is not known, but the situation became dangerous since several of the prisoners onboard the bus are facing murder charges. Among them were Christopher Sosa and Ashton Anderson who are both on remand for murder, Guishany Wagner who was on remand for an aggravated assault with a firearm, Owen Parham who is charged with attempted robbery, a minor and as many as six other prisoners.

While being escorted off the bus, however, twenty-one year old Norman McKenzie was still attempting to attack a minor who was involved in the fight and had to be restrained by police. McKenzie came to court today to apply for bail for the Attempted Murder of Keon Johnson that occurred on July fourth. While Johnson that alleged attempt, he was murdered on Saturday evening. McKenzie was granted bail of two thousand dollars, but before it could be met, it was discovered that he had breached the terms of parole for a previous conviction of attempted murder of his brother-in-law, Simon Castillo. His next court date is set for November twenty-sixth.

    Should have let them kill each other-we are now barbarians anyway.

    Should have locked up the bus and not open till everything was quiet.

    Hang them all

    So it’s just a joke to the authorities that these dopes commit assaults on the way to court?
