MARCH 24, 2008

Investigators are still trying to ascertain the motive behind the shooting death of a man and injuries to seven others at a British Link Up dance held at the popular La Roose nightclub in Portmore, St Catherine, yesterday morning. The dead man has been identified as 41-year-old Clifton Reid of Anthony Road, Kingston 5. Six persons, including a female, received gunshot wounds during the incident, while two others were injured in an ensuing stampede. The event attracted hundreds of patrons. Senior Superintendent of Police Calvin Benjamin said it was unclear what triggered the altercation. “It happened in the morning. Many persons have left the venue, some gone home, some at hospital. So it will take some time to interview the relevant persons to find out what caused the shooting,” said Benjamin.Sergeant Troy Anderson of the Constabulary Communication Network, the police information arm, said a gunfight erupted between patrons about 7:45 a.m. “During the mêlée, six persons, including Reid, were shot. He died on the spot,” said Anderson.


Ricardo ‘Bully’ Thomas, the man who made Jamaica’s top 10 most wanted list earlier this year, was slapped with a million-dollar fine and put on three years’ probation when he appeared in the High Court Division of the Gun Court yesterday. Police said Thomas, 37, was held on Charlemont Avenue, Barbican, St Andrew on October 18, 2008 with two 9 mm pistols along with 49 rounds of 9 mm ammunition. He was subsequently charged and later pleaded guilty to two counts of illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.
According to the police, Thomas is the leader of a gang in Cockburn Pen, a tough community in Kingston 11 where ongoing warfare with a rival area gang has resulted in the murders of approximately 60 persons. Yesterday, sources said the police were extremely worried that Thomas had to go to court seven times after pleading guilty before being sentenced. The police are also worried that his release will spark a fresh round of violence in the war-torn community.

The owners of La Roose have opted for a new image and name. Now known as the Live Wire Sports Bar and Grill, owner of the establishment, RicardoThomas, says, “We just thought it was time to move away from a certain image. A lot of things have happened in the past where the name became associated with some bad incidents, and we are trying to move away from that.” Thomas also said though the company had been registered as the Live Wire Sports Bar and Grill, they had changed the name to La Roose, but not that of the company. “So right now we are using the name that was originally registered,” he said. Live Wire, which is located on Port Henderson Road in Portmore, St Catherine, has hosted events like Black Scorpio’s 37th anniversary, Vybz Kartel’s Birthday Bash, Black and White Affair, British Link Up and, more recently, Fancy Thursdays. The owners say although they have revamped the name, they will not be excluding their previous target audience – a young crowd with a great love for dancehall music, and have even added a few events just for them. “Some of the things people can look out for is a theme night at Fancy Thursdays starting next week. Every week it will be a different theme with things like foam night, Hawaiian night, Lingerie Night, High-Roller night and that sort of thing. Another event we will also be launching is something called ‘MisMatch’, where people just come out in anything! Red dress with green shoes, yellow scarf and things like that. The worst, the better. The person with the ‘best’ mismatched outfit will win a prize,” said Thomas.

JULY 1, 2009

The identities of four persons shot and killed at Live Wire Enterprise, formerly La Roose, in Portmore St. Catherine on Wednesday night have been established. Police sources are indicating that all four have had brushes with the law. Among the dead are the owner of the Club and his brother. When our News team visited the Port Henderson Road based club in the aftermath of the shooting, the area was awash with blood, abandoned shoes other articles of clothing, telltale signs of the terror which had unfolded hours before. Senior investigators attached to the Area Five Police were busy combing for clues. Those killed are the club’s owner Ricardo Thomas, his brother Kirk Thomas, both of Charlemont Drive, Kingston 6; David Wisdom also known as Biggs of Lyndale Avenue, Kingston 20 and Andrew Walker, whose alias is Mampy Zeeks of August Town in Kingston 7. A fifth man was also seriously injured in the shooting. The police believe the incident may be linked to a shooting which occurred in Olympic Gardens last weekend. According to a source close to the investigation, eight men armed with M16 rifles entered the club in two vehicles, posing as policemen. They then approached the men who were sitting at the bar. The men are believed to have been working with three women who were already inside the club as the women are said to have embraced the men just before the shooting started. The men and the three women fled during the ensuing confusion. When the shooting subsided it was discovered that five persons had been shot, four fatally. During a subsequent search a nine millimetre Smith and Wesson pistol with 11 rounds of ammunition was found on the outside of the perimeter fencing. The Thomas brothers are said to have missed a flight out of the island on Wednesday. A year ago Ricardo Thomas was on the country’s most wanted list. He was nabbed by the police at a house in Barbican, St. Andrew on October 18 reportedly in possession of two nine millimetre pistols and 49 rounds of ammunition. Thomas was given three years probation and fined one million dollars in the Gun Court in December. He was also linked to an 18 month upsurge in violence in Cockburn Gardens in which 60 persons were killed. He was also wanted for the 2004 murder of Devonde Lawla on White Walk, Kingston 11. Mampy Zeeks is reputed to be an August Town area leader.

But funny enough Bully and Waldie was in war and it was a known war allegedly over woman i’m not sure how true that cause of the war is, its said Waldie mek man kill one of bully’s followers / cousin, bully did a reprisal killing but got too personal and killed Waldie father who is alleged to be a beloved, friendly man, and thats how it turned in one big mess and dem murder Bully. Waldie was later held by police i think and i havent heard anything about waldie since then. Bully Have a big house up barbican, a big peach colour house and when him dead his parents was trying to sell the house, and his mother used to bawl and i think his father lost either his hearing or speech due to the trauma, they were veru torn up that his brother ricky died in the messy situation. my brain kinda ole and a couple years ago it happen, so if everything nuh right who have di right info run een!

    If you guys are going to give out info, you need to enlighten the rest of us as to who these individuals are, how they came by their money, etc. Who is Waldo/Waldie? Penco/Pence? Who is Bully? Are they somehow associated with the British Link Up crew? We need background information to make sense of these killings.

    Ricardo ‘Bully’ Thomas, was fined $1 million and given three years probation when he appeared in the Corporate Area Gun Court.

    Ricardo ‘Bully’ Thomas, was fined $1 million and given three years probation when he appeared in the Corporate Area Gun Court. Bully had pleaded guilty to charges of illegal possession of two firearms and 49 rounds of ammunition. News emerged last week that before his sentencing, a senior cop gave character evidence claiming that Bully had helped the police to solve crimes and find illegal guns. The executive director of Jamaican’s for Justice, Dr Carolyn Gomes, said there are clear questions that must be answered. The public is not allowed to observe the proceedings in the Gun Court. The police are raising concern that Bully’s return to his community could result in more violence there. The police said Bully’s gang in Cockburn Pen has been in constant war with another gang led by a man identified as ‘Waldie’. According to the police, the conflict between the gangs has resulted in the murders of 60 persons in the past 18 months. Bully’s case was called up seven times since he pleaded guilty, before he was finally sentenced on Wednesday.

Naaa… Boss did know seh people were coming for him from all angles.

    Leave out di Boss name out a you negative comments!

  • Detective Chris Porter says:

    Wow!!! Reading some of these comments shows how the Jamaican people’s mind warped with madness! Why would someone glorified or worshipped someone responsible for killing others in the community and not doing something constructive for the youths?
    I know all of these men that they are writing about and it is sad how they’ve taken the wrong path in life instead of using the money to uplifting things.
    I am not going to comment about the men’s background, and before they migrated and made money, then they returned to Jamaica wanting others to fear and worshipped them. The reason why most people behave like that it is because if low-self-esteem, lacking love, and wanting to be mini-governments without elected.
    If these men and others who want to be like them, look at the result for all of them? DEATH!!! Who in their right mind thinks that living like that is cool and something to glorified?
    Whenever, a gunman or don is killed the illiterate, licky-licky, amoral, unethical, and lacking decency and empathy people revered, celebrate, and lauded these killers.
    I know “Honey and Carlos,” very well. As a young man growing up, I knew Honey’s babymother “Myrna,” his sons, “Paul, Markie, and I can name more.” Honey’s babymother and children used to live along Portland West, Waterford, St. Catherine beside my late uncle and they are friends of my family. Both brothers (Honey and Carlos) when they found out that wanted to be a police officer when I grew up. Carlos told me some pointers and how to deal with gunmen….
    To most ghetto youths, I know that people like me is NOT a role model to them or want to emulate me, is because they would see me as an enemy (informer) of the poor and criminal minded people.
    I used to work at Hunts Bay Police Station as a Detective and I know all of these men, including Bitty’s cousin “GO-WEST or Raymond,” also the late “James Hinds,” and I can go on and on!!!
    If these young boys mothers and fathers do NOT interject, take charge, guide, and let these boys know that crime doesn’t pay and the only sure thing is DEATH at a young age. Then the cycle is going to continue of death, maiming, or jail then prison!
    When you are dead, no ghetto accolades, respect, or lies can bring you back to life, because you’re gone! The stupid, illiterate, and licky-licky people are praising you a “dead man,” for harming the fellow man in your community or neighboring communities. How does that help your life when you are gone?
    Some of these fools who are talking about “Waldie, Bully, Bitty, and others who are dead,” is this kind of don and that do and who is the more prominent don…that is so stupid because at the end of the day, they are all dead, and the reason is because of the life they choose.
    Now, what benefit it is when they killed someone from the community because of a disagreement? Our people are so illiterate that they can disagree to agree? As anything they want blood to run and someone dead? But, these same people who support and cuddles shooters or themselves are gunmen whenever they are staring down the barrel of the gun and realize that they are going to DIED, they always SHIT UP themselves, still!!! I remember back in the ’90s there used to be a don who lived on Maple View Road, Kingston 11 and he and “Bitty,” gang in war. And he was killed by men from Top Waltham Park Road (Tenor Fly) and one thing i give him credit for is that the people never used to kill each other and he used to encourage the youths to go and stay in school.

    I did my years in the police force and resigned, I migrated to America, joined the military, served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and now I worked with the Department of Defense doing things that I love….One thing that I hate as a Jamaican by birth are “gunmen,” especially the ones who are cowards and are responsible for killing others in the community.
    I do support PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKES against criminals, as the American military does overseas. You don’t have to be a physical threat to us, but you’re considered a threat, and we send in a drone and blow you up. That’s how the gunmen should be treated….Cockburn Pen/Cockburn Gardens was one of the most beautiful places during the ’90s when other communities were at war with each other and this low-self-esteem, lacking love, and seeking attention men created artificial border lines in the communities.
    Indian Peter from Maverly who was involved in the bank robbery I knew him too!!!!!! He used to come to my house in Jungle!!!
    How many are more youths going to waste their lives because of some stupid, short term thinking, and want others to respect and fear them?
    When you are educated like me, with your degrees and have access to rub shoulders with people others only see on TV, which path would you want to choose? My way of being a top man? Or the guys these people calling Don this, don that and how many people they killed and they are all dead?
    EDUCATION!!! Read, read, and free yourself from mental slavery because the late Marcus Garvey did NOT want Jamaicans to live like this!
