            [post_content] => This past week, a bar in Mayaro named Merry Men was able to capture a robbery involving four bandits that were antagonizing its patrons with a security footage. The security camera inside the bar was able to capture the entire scene with a recorded video.

In the video, the bandits are seen ordering the owner of the bar around as they search the establishment for money and other valuables. While conducting their search, they came across the security camera's recording base in which they tried to destroy.

According to reports, it was around 9:30 p.m. when the four men entered the bar located on Manzanilla Road, Mayaro. As soon as they did, they held up everyone in the place. Patrons were robbed of their valuables and some were even butted in their heads with a gun.

Based on the assessment that was made by investigators, the owners of the bar, Tina Zhang and Ton Chang, were robbed of approximately $20,000 in cash, liquor and phone cards by the men.

The video retained from the security footage was recently released on the internet. You can see the entire incident for yourself in the embedded video below.

            [post_content] => The five cops in Jamaica that were taken into custody on a case that involved a school girl being shot in the head last month were all charged. The cop who was responsible for firing the shot was charged with wounding, while the other four officers were accused and penalized for misconduct in public office. The officers Corporal Kirk Haye, Corporal Shawn Abrahams, Constable Warren Ramsay, Constable Damion Gillespie, and Constable Archibald Wright, appeared in court and were granted released on bail. However, they are not permitted to leave the island while the court still decides their final charges.

On Wednesday last week, the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) issued charges to the five officers who are all linked to the Jamaica Constabulary Force's Mobile Reserve Division. According to a report, further details of Haye's charge state that he was held accountable for wounding with intent and failing to provide INDECOM with statements. As for the other four, they were accused of failing to issue statements to the Commission, in addition to failing to answer questions that were asked during in their interrogations.

While Abrahams, Gillespie, Ramsay and Wright were all granted bail in the amount of J$500,000 (US$3,951); Haye was required to pay up J$1 million (US$7,902) to be released. As they roam on bail, the officers were instructed to give up their travel documents. Stop orders were also put up for each of they at all ports of entry and exit and they must report to the police station nearest to their homes three days a week.

Subsequent to the incident occurring at around 7:15 a.m. on the 30th of June, INDECOM immediately launched an investigation. They found out that an illegal taxi man who was transporting students of Convent of Mercy Academy and St Georges College was stopped by lawmen who opened fire. In the event, one of the female students was struck in her head. The girl had to undergo surgery at the Kingston Public Hospital and is said to be recovering after being released from the Intensive Care Unit.
