Asberth News Network has received yet another report of alleged “police brutality.” One sibling shared her concerns when her brother turned up with wounds across his body which he claimed was inflicted at the hands of multiple police officers.
According to the unconfirmed report, Courtney Quammie and Bronson Parris were on their way home from work, at about 5:30 Monday afternoon, when a vehicle drove passed them where the Thomas’ Apartments complex is located in Diamond.
The car passed so close, we were told, that one of the men shouted at the driver and asked “if they can’t drive on the road.” The driver reversed the vehicle and two men alighted, “the taller one showing his gun.”
None of the two pedestrians recall either the driver or the passenger actually identifying themselves as police officers dressed in plainclothes. Independent sources, however, have confirmed that at least one of the two men seen searching Quammie in a 20 seconds video is in fact an active member of the Rapid Response Unit (a.k.a Black Squad) of the Royal SVG Police Force.
Having found a less than ticket-able amount of cannabis in Quammie’s bag, the supposed peace officers confiscated the ganja “along with his scissors and let them leave [but] as they were heading in their gap the Black Squad police came up and started to accost them and then took them to their base ”
Both Quammie and Paris were then driven up to the out station where they were allegedly beaten “viciously with steel baseball bats, plywood and gun butt.”
Evidence of swollen faces, bruised body parts and what looks like a bleeding wound in Quammie’s head was captured in a series of photos that were shared with ANN.
We were told, “it’s the whole team beat the two of them at the base.” Our source estimated as many as 8 officers who allegedly took part in the beating.
One of the police officers, allegedly, went as far as to “put a gun in Quammie mouth.”
Paris and Quammie were released, having survived the ordeal. It is unclear whether they would pursue criminal and or civil charges against the so-called physically violent peace officers.
Efforts to ascertain the veracity of these allegations continue.
