VIDEO: Point Resident shot by rubber bullet after refusing to leave home


The man was shot after a long stand-off with police.

Watch the footage showing the man refusing to leave after several attempts by the police.

Houses in that area are being cleared to make way for a new Chinese funded housing complex.

Although most residents have left the area, the last remaining residents are not leaving without a fight.

Watch the fight here:

Further reports indicate Heavy-duty machine operators ran for cover as a group of angry Point residents threw stones and other missiles at them and their equipment.

Scores of residents were outraged over the manner in which a Booby Alley resident was extracted from his home by police, who allegedly showed up with a warrant for the occupants to vacate the premises, in order for the house to be demolished as part of government’s urban renewal plan for the area.

  2. You reap what you sow.If you sow corn, you cannot get rice.Who would be the recipients of said homers when they are finished. Let us all wait and see, for time would tell.That area is near the proposed expansion.Does anyone thinks those folks would be resettled there.

  5. Looks like the guys that used the same tactics on women and children on that terrible and eventful day on Teargas Sunday!


  6. The police demolishing property. Is the house and land owned by the individual? If the man owned the property did Gaston provide him with land to move the house to? Or was he paid for property. The house maybe a plywood house but that’s all poor people can afford. You can’t mash down a man’s house and put him on the street.
