Even though the cause of this murder is not known as yet, Tensions are high in the St Andrew community of Cockburn Pen after it was alleged that police killed a man this morning. Residents set a car on fire and threw debris on to the road at the Waltham Park and Hagley Park Road intersection in protest of the killing. Police have since gotten the protest under control.

Police a gwaan bad, bad man a gwaan bad but a only police alone unno can highlight. 19 persons were murdered over the weekend. Weh the ” bad man a gwaan bad” post dem? Protest peacefully but it’s not right to be throwing stones on people car who a going about them business. Cuz best believe me if all this morning me a drive pass and nobody fling stone pan my car me would a run dem over.
I stand with u guys with protesting against the injustice from the police but please be safe and do it peacefully❤
