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.
