BIG BIG OUTRAGE IN JAMAICA: Man accused of impregnating teen three times charged.... She is currently pregnant with her third child for the accused, who is believed to be in his early 50s.

THE police unit responsible for investigating sexual and other abuses of children have arrested and charged a man accused of impregnating a teenage girl in the Lawrence Tavern community of St Andrew.
The accused was charged by officers assigned to the Centre For Investigation Of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) with having sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 16 years.
On Friday, Detective Inspector Anderson at the unit told the Jamaica Observer that the man was granted bail, but that it was not known if he had taken up the offer.
He made his first court appearance on July 14 after being arrested in June. He is to return to court on September 13.
The Observer first reported the story on June 12 after the aunt of the teen disclosed that she had been impregnated by the man at the age of 14.
The woman also said her niece was forced to lie about her age whenever she visited the clinic. She is currently pregnant with her third child for the accused, who is believed to be in his early 50s.
“She tell them she was 17, which was not true, and now she is pregnant again for him at 17, but a tell people she a 21. She not even giving dem her real name, so you know that child won't even have her right name on the birth certificate. I tell my sister to leave but she said she not moving to country. So that is the result,” the woman told the Observer in June. CISOCA was contacted by the Observer about the matter, an investigation was launched and the man taken into custody.
Anderson, however, pointed out that the outcome of the case is dependent on whether or not the victim is willing to cooperate with the police.
“She is his babymother, so I don't know which way the halls of justice will swing. Oftentimes when you have cases like this, it's all dependent on the complainant. Every action that police take is dependent on how interested the complainants are,” Anderson said.
The teen's mother, who, it is alleged, was aware of her abuse, has since fled the community, fearing that she, too, could be arrested and charged by the police.
“She say me bring down problems inna her life and she don't talk to me now. She leave too, because she don't want dem lock her up,” the aunt told the Observer.
She said her sister hadIn the meantime, the woman is to receive a two-bedroom house after she was forced to flee the community after the accused in the aforementioned case and his cronies allegedly issued death and rape threats to her and her 13-year-old daughter.
The mother of 10 had shared with the Observer in June that the accused and self-proclaimed area don allegedly attempted to sexually groom her child who was only nine years old at the time. She said the incident was reported to the police, which resulted in a court case. The woman said nothing came of the case, which was followed by consistent threats from men in the area who are said to be a part of this so-called don's entourage. insisted that she was not willing to report the matter, which she believed would've disrupted her life.  more

UPDATE : Condemnation for Mickolle Moulton's murder....Window through which she was shot...Police have no leads regarding the allegations of the motive for the murder.

 Wednesday, August 09, 2017

The brutal murder of 17-year-old Mickolle Moulton at her home in Arnett Gardens on Sunday morning triggered condemnation by government officials, the police, and citizens.
The 17-year-old, who was a Meadowbrook High School student, and her 12-year-old sister were shot in their bedroom by someone who pointed a gun through a window.

National Security Minister Robert Montague, in a press release, condemned the brutal killing and extended condolence to her family, all families affected by crime and violence, and pointed out that the murder, committed as Jamaica celebrated 55 years of Independence, is a harsh reminder of the realities we face as a nation.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force, he said, has assured that no effort will be spared to bring to justice the criminal who carried out this dastardly act.
Opposition Leader Dr Peter Phillips also condemned the murder, labelling it “savage” and appealed to the Arnett Gardens community to work with the police to identify and bring those responsible to justice.

“This brutal killing of the 17-year-old and the shooting of her younger sister signal a new low to which our society has plunged in relation to crime and violence,” Phillips said. “Here is a girl who has committed herself to her academic studies so she could make her contribution to her family, community and country. She has been brutally cut down before she could fulfil her potential.”
“The community must work hand in hand with the police and spare no effort in bringing the perpetrators to justice. I offer condolence to the family, community, schoolmates and teachers; and pray for a speedy recovery for her sister who suffered injury in the attack,” he added. Senator Mark Golding also condemned the act and said the “callous depravity of this incident has shocked the entire community and left residents with a deep sense of despair and sadness”.
“I wish to express my heartfelt condolence to the family, who were already grieving the recent passing of the girls' grandmother. Mickolle had a bright future ahead of her, having just graduated from Meadowbrook High, and it has been tragically cut short in this most vile manner. The police must spare no effort in finding the perpetrators of this heinous crime. It is also critical that the community give the police their full cooperation in the investigations, so that the case can be solved and justice is done,” he said.
Golding also called for those communities with warring factions to end the violence, embrace unity, and work in harmony to build an economic base for the future. “Let us come together. We can strengthen existing businesses and start new ones, work with agencies to improve infrastructure, take advantage of educational opportunities, and generally empower ourselves in a positive direction. That must be the new way towards a future with hope and opportunities for progress,” he said.
The officials' condemnations, however, did not impress social media users.

“With due respect we are tired of this song you love to sing, that dub plate scratch... only once in a while her name will be mentioned, namely when another mom cries out,” one user commented.
“Condemning does not strike fear into gunmen and won't bring the victims back. Action is needed,” another wrote.
“For decades now, when these situations take place all I can hear is the same old sentiment, 'we are sorry' and then nothing is done,” another said.
Regarding the allegations, Detective Inspector Derrick Abbison at the Centre For Investigation Of Sexual Offences & Child Abuse said the unit has received no such report and will have to await findings from local police before they can investigate it. more

Skinny repeal bill fails in the Senate 49 to 51. McCain voted NO ....OBAMACARE STILL STANDS.

Senators killed the GOP’s “skinny” Obamacare repeal bill, called the Health Care Freedom Act of 2017, in a 49-51 vote early Friday morning.
The bill would have eliminated the penalty on people who decline to get insurance, thereby removing a piece of Obamacare that has long drawn conservative ire. It also would have suspended the medical device tax for three years while allowing greater contributions into Health Savings Accounts.
Sen. Mitch McConnel
And the bill would have made it easier for states to get waivers from the federal government, giving them a little more leeway to redirect money that’s supposed to help people buy health insurance. The precise effect of that particular provision is a little unclear.
GOP leaders tried to assure caucus members the point of the bill was merely to push the process along ― to get the debate to the next stage, so that House and Senate leaders can negotiate and come up with a bill that’s acceptable to both chambers.
But that promise wasn’t enough for three Republican senators, including Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who cast one of the crucial no votes that doomed the bill.

HUMANITARIAN: Shaggy Gives Back To Children through his Make a Difference Foundation. Shaggy has donated more than US$US1.6 million (JA$201.5 Million) worth of equipment to the hospital.

JANUARY 6, 2018 — that's the date for next year's staging of the biennial charity concert, Shaggy and Friends, organised by Shaggy through his Make a Difference Foundation.

The concert is staged in aid of the Bustamante Hospital for Children in St Andrew, the country's lone paediatric facility.
He was unable to give details, but said there are big plans in place and his team will now have to get down to working out logistics to ensure that this year's concert tops its predecessors.
Shaggy and his foundation were at the hospital on Wednesday to hand over equipment, furniture, parts and accessories with a combined valued of more than US$529,000.
Executive director of the foundation Rebecca Burrell said this is the first of two handovers, with the second one set for September this year.
Shaggy and wife Rebecca share a moment

For Shaggy, this stage in the process is always fulfilling.
“It always confirms how much it is all worth it. A lot of people don't know the inner fighting that takes place and the tension that goes into getting it done. The money from the last two concerts went into providing equipment for the cardiac lab, so we haven't been able to give anything over that period to the hospital itself, so to be able to do this is great,” he told Splash. Shaggy disclosed that the cardiac facility for which funds from the 2012 and 2014 concerts were designated should be ready by later this year.

“Once it is done, that will be a whole other level of joy. We will be able to provide cardiac surgery free of cost for Jamaican babies. It's been a long time coming, but it will happen. The building is ready now; we are putting in the plates and we are aiming for about October.”
Since starting the initiative in 2009, Shaggy has donated more than US$US1.6 million worth of equipment to the hospital.
