March 24, 1999 BAJAN NEWS ---------- MINI VAN MADNESS ---------------- You can hear ZR139 coming long before you see it !... so says Roy Morris. ... and so popular is it with the school children that he shows us a picture of an Ellerslie student with his feet hanging out of the rear window and exposed to oncoming traffic... the ZR139 has redefined the meaning of the word "capacity"... and as the children push and jostle each other to board it... some boys have adopted the technique of taking a flying leap through the windows... hence the "dangling feet" syndrome....the vehicle is already full.... totally ram.... and an unconcerned driver stops to pick up another ten passengers... he really doesn't care how they fit... once they appear to be attached to the vehicle in some way... off he goes again. Meanwhile, transport board buses pass by empty... but the students are not interested in them.... ZR139 is their bus of CHOICE. According to Mr. Morris... it appears that the OWNER of ZR139... is a former LAWMAN... an ex-policeman... and the success of ZR139 is apparently based on the fact that it routinely breaks the law and serves up popular music at ear-splitting sound levels ! He then goes on to report how a woman told a little six year old boy to tie his shoe lacings... when the lad told her "NO"... she told him he might fall and knock out his teeth... the boys mother then pipes up an tells her child "TELL SHE DUM WOULD GROW BACK !" GUNS, GANJA AND COCK-FIGHT ! ---------------------------- LAWmen swooped down on the small village of Paradise, near to Market Hill, St. George... where an illegal cock-fight was being held... reliable sources tell us that illegal cock-fighting is not new to this country, indeed it has been going on for a long, long time.. however.. More than 40 heavily-armed members of the Task Force and Serious Crime Unit engulfed the tiny village around 2 p.m. on March 21.... and carried off 29 fighting cocks, 2 guns, some marijuana, camouflage gear and some other items.... witnesses at the scene tell us that bets on the cocks were ranging from $3000 - $5000... and a large and hostile crowd quickly converged... but they could not prevail against THE LAW. Six men have been brought before Magistrate Valton Bend, charged with encouraging cock-fighting, they were convicted and placed on a bond to keep the peace and be of good behaviour for 12 months Nobody was charged in connection with the guns and ganja... since it was not certain who the items belonged to... they were picked up off the ground. COPS CHARGED ------------ Criminal charges have been brought against 5 policemen who caused serious bodily harm to several Puerto Rican suspects who were held for questioning after the big bank heist at Oistins... remember, they used explosives to get to the ATM through the wall of the laundermat... just like they do it on TV !!!! There was a Cony Island running at the time and police were sure these Puerto Ricans who came in with it, must have had someting to do with the bank job... and they used a little too much force trying to get it out of them... they never had enough evidence to make it stick... and the whole incident sort of just blew up.... in their face !! Students have SEX in the Stadium -------------------------------- I reported an incident previously, where students were having sex in a mini-bus.... waistline moving to bassline style! Now last week, at inter-school sports.... it seems some students were having their own kind of "sports".... high up in the back of the stands at the National Stadium..... and the papers are full of it... as everybody carries on over the loss of moral discipline.... mind you, I had sexual encounters too, when I was at school... back in 1971. I CONFESS it is quite exciting... lef it at dat... somebody goin buse ma tail again if I say any more I gone.
