PHOTOS: Young Antiguan Women shackled

31

Photos of two young women that the police accuse of being behind Sunday’s alleged illegal gathering were pictured today in shackles.

This after the police broke down the doors to their homes in the wee hours of the morning.

The two young ladies were photographed in lock up.

They maintain their innocence in what some see as government and police persecution.

  1. One thing is certain: THE CREATOR SEES AND KNOWS EVERYTHING…even all our thoughts.

    Every man will stand before judgement of the Almighty one day sooner than you think.
    Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he reap.

    Corruption and cruelty will last for a moment, but each will pay for his/her stewardship of this life.

    The inhumane treatment of the young man thrown into the back of a police pickup and the inhumane detention of two young ladies will be all brought to light at the judgement of those who orchestrated these acts. Rest Assured of that!

    The constitution gives the right to all for peaceful picket. That right can NEVER be taken away.

    All who jump high and low to the dictates of political misleaders; who call evil good and good evil: YOUR DAY OF RECKONING IS AT HAND.

    The people suffer not for want of knowledge, but because their hearts are evil, corrupt, full of greed and vanity.

    Mr. police commissioner, attorney general, prime misleader and all those who adhere to the brutality and corruption: Be aware that A GREAT CREATOR’s angels record all the thoughts and actions of man. Nothing is left uncovered.

    WORLD “CRYSIS”: WAKE UP, YOU FOOLS! YOUR VANITIES WILL BE YOUR DESTRUCTION.

  2. Why the shackles? Are these women murderers or high risk criminals? The police are using bullying tactics to brutalized Antiguan citizens. Does Gaston agree with this treatment of Antiguans? We know that Cutie will follow whatever Gaston says. Someone said a past minister under VC Birds government told the police to shoot to kill. He was forever known as shoot to kill and VC government was voted out of office the next election.

  3. Yup! That’s what happens when you BREAK THE LAW! There are CONSEQUENCES FOR LAWBREAKING!!!

    Don’t worry, your supporters will “sort you out”

  4. Stay strong my sisters. This is all part of the ordinary black men / women struggles in Antigua and Barbuda. The puppet commissioner Rodney and his goon squads are obligated to do the dirty works of the politicians. Understand, They must sing for their supper or else they will be fired by Gaston Brown. Rodney has now proved that he is just a clone of Gaston Browne. So many lies in the media! Unbelievable.
    Breaking down of these young ladies doors and parading them around in shackles and chains only prove that law enforcers are weak and strengthen the movement. The protest for fundamental human rights continue! Free all those arrested now!
    Revolution Time

  5. Gaston better pray that the actions of the police do not result in someone’s death. That blood would be on his hands.

  6. “PC Bell Redux”

    Is this Iran? Why are these ladies paraded in front of the media in shackles? The PC needs to be sacked. This is outrageous! Where is the UPP when Antiguans are being abused by this French mountain chicken?

  7. Are we as a PEOPLE BACK ON THOSE SLAVES SHIPS IN ANTIGUA? Why would they be in ankle chains? Are they known as hard core criminals,flight risks? Atlee Rodney,every dag has its day. I do hope when yours come. You would be ready/prepared. Because sooner and or later you would be thrown off that high and mighty horse. Just hope you would be wearing a helmet.There are no reasons.Why they had to be shacked by hands and feet.
    When Michael Browne was arrested and charged with criminality. Did you shackle him by hands and feet? I would guess not.However,you the Police arrested Damani Tabor.He was paraded with hands and feet shackled.Damn double standard inna Antigua.Where are those on REPARATIONS Committee to speak out on the abuse of these two ladies and others.Oh I forgot.They are in Gaston’s closets.Lazy,fat,arses.

  8. What ya’ll need to realise is this was done to send a message. Why shackles? Because they want to silence any opposition to their agenda, and what better way than to lock-up the alleged organizers. The government is creating civil unrest by fighting fire with fire. Let the ppl have a peaceful demonstration and go home, there is no need for show of force to increase tensions. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is what Gaston wants to try to use this to extend his term cause otherwise I do not see how he can win. I am 31 years old, never voted in my life, do not even have a voter’s I.D. and for the first time ever, I am considering it. I just wish the opposition party did not also seem so incompetent. We need new political parties that are ready to take us into the future. Covid shut down world tourism, but countries that have other industries are doing fine. The first thing our Gov’t could announce that they are doing to create jobs is create a State run Hotel(this was back in 2020) and at this point all the hotels on the Island were already nearly empty and this was your best idea? We lack vision and creativity in our leaders, they are to old-fashion and frankly too old. It is time to consider new industries and niche markets which we currently have the ability to do, some I know of, can even be combined with tourism because it does not mean tourism has to go away. We need CHANGE!

  9. Tabor and Chaku to the rescue. Don’t worry ladies. You’ll be out very soon. And when you have to answer before the judge, just tell them who send you. Like the Trumpers who tell the judges now that Trump tell them to go to the Capitol.
    Reminds me some years ago they encourage Ineta to sing a calypso implicating Gaston in her song. She was forewarned, but they UPP encourage her tell her they will pay her legal bill. It is very quite now around that, because she has come to realize that she is left alone in her trouble. And now she has reach out to Gaston for a settlement. And knowing the big heart of this man, he has agreed to this. I would have taken her straight to the cleaners and made her an example for others.

    • Gaston goes to the Wesleyan Holiness Church so maybe he still has some of his Sunday School lessons in him. You on the hand should stop edging up to Gaston for some crumbs, and go back where you come from.

  10. The Chinese young man that burned down XPZ, never saw him in shackle. I guess Antigua 🇦🇬 people get different treatment.

  11. Do you know which government created the public order act? Do you know which government created a law that radio stations have to pay thousands of dollars to operate? Do you know which political party have as their MO is to caused their blind followers to disobey Lawful orders? They have done so from the late sixties to present when they are in opposition. This is classic UPPITES operations.

  12. Many of you blogging on here …..FAILED TO SEE THE JAMAICAN MURDERER WHO KILLED ALTHEA HENRY ISNT IN ANY HANDCUFFS OR ANKLE CUFFS AND HE IS BEING CHARGED FOR……1st degree MURDER !!!!!!

    TELL ME HOW IT GO…..EVEN IF THEY BROKE THE LAW WHAT CAN EQUATE THEM BEING IN SHACKLES WHILE A MURDERER WALKS FREELY ….UNRESTRAINT…..LIKE SERIOUSLY…..DOWE HATE OUR OWN AND.OVE FOREIGNERS MURDEROUS FOREIGNERS……

    I SWEAR ANTIGUA IS UNDER SEIGE /DEMONIC ATTACKS..
    PRAYER WARRIORS NEED TO SOUND THE ALARMS.

  13. Soon from now we won’t be able to walk the streets in this continues. Antigua right now a no fu black people. If you say anything the government use the very same black people fu tek advantage of its people. This “house slave” mentally need fu tap. Our poor ancestors put up with shit fu we come and tek shit too?! We need a change and right now anything/anybody betta dan dis ya!

  14. Clearly this is a publicity stunt to intimidate, dissuade and put fear in society. I have seen many individuals to include the “Vampire Killer” brought before the court without restraints. Leg restraints are reserved for individuals during transport from a penal institution, jail to a court hearing, medical appointments and in the rare case hospitalization. Usually extradited individuals are restrained in this manner when the transportation is provided by the government.

    This is all show. A heavy handed approach. Which will backfire on the sitting government and the police department sworn to protect its citizens from all enemies foreign and domestic.

    The detained posed no threat of escape, damaging government property or to the officers under there control.

    In the midst of all this. Those that may find themselves free today will one day find themselves in such a predicament.

    They will become high priority extradite. Then you will see a white unmarked plane on the tarmac at VCBIA. With the alphabet boys escorting them to there seats in leg irons, belly chain, handcuffs, black box with a padlock.

    • UPSET putting an accused in hand chains and in particular foot chains is reserved for UPP known supporters as a way to humiliate and demoralize. It is pure political persecution and not prosecution. It will not work just like it will not work with the two lady Freedom Fighters.

      • DONETTE SIMON is not a pup supporter. A ABLP she be. SHAME SHAME ON EVERY ONE THAT THINK THIS IS RIGHT. SHAME I SAY SHAME.

  15. The amount of people talking about they deserve it can’t see beyond them self I guess everything this government say u all drink up like u all can’t think or do anything for ur self throughout my life I have come to notice that when one government is in power what ever they or do is ok but when the next one is in power everything they do is wrong when alp is out of power rape robbery murder all kinds of shit happens but as soon as they get in power it all stops can someone educate me on tht plse

  16. Let’s see if they shackle anyone at the upcoming state funeral since there will be more than 50 people gathered. I want see if they will fire teargas and rubber bullets too.
