  1. Is there any cameras in the cells? Where were the officers?Is this not a good case to file lawsuit against the police? You are responsible for the man safety once you took custody of him and there aught to be a serious investigation as to how this heinous act was carried out without right under the police nose.that no one was alerted that Caesar

  2. How the hell could you put two men who had an altercation into the same cell? There is a Calypso entitled:Only in Antigua. The Family of the deceased should hire the Law Firm of Watt and Dorsett to handle a lawsuit against the Police Commissioner and the Ministry of National Security.

  3. Nowhere in the above story does it say that the deceased and the alleged perpetrator were detained for a fight between them. What is stated, is that both men were detained by the police and placed in the same holding cell, whilst there they got into a fight which resulted in the deceased being found unresponsive and upon examination was later on declared dead.
    Now, does this raise questions? Of course it does. This happened on Wednesday but there has been no follow up story up to now. Perhaps we have to wait to hear what, if any charges are to be laid on the other inmate. A man has died. Irrespective of what caused him to be detained it should not lead to his death. His family and indeed the rest of our society needs answers.
