JFLAG DISOWNING DEM OWN?

Rowdy gays upset J-FLAG
Lobby group says it does not condone criminal behaviour
Sunday, January 27, 2013

THE Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All-Sexuals and Gays (J-FLAG) has declared that it will not accept responsibility for the rowdy, and sometimes violent behaviour of a group of gay men said to be wreaking havoc in a section of the country’s capital.
The group’s statement comes in response to public outcry over the behaviour of the group of men who are based in New Kingston, and the admission by the police that they are having difficulties dealing with them.
The premises of the Kingston headquarters of Jamaica AIDS Support for Life and the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All-Sexuals and Gays where a ban was imposed on rowdy, violent gays for bad behaviour.

“We want to make it absolutely clear that while J-FLAG advocates for the rights of all Jamaicans, and, in particular, members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, J-FLAG does not condone any form of misconduct, violent or criminal behaviour. In addition, while these individuals may be members of the LGBT community, J-FLAG cannot be held culpable for their actions and behaviour,” read a section of a statement released by the organisation.
“J-FLAG, as communicated to the police on many occasions, is fully supportive of their efforts to resolve the issues created by homeless gay men. J-FLAG agrees it is necessary to apprehend and incarcerate persons who commit crimes and understands the necessity of mitigating the impact of lawlessness on business people, residents, employees and commuters. J-FLAG does not in any way consider the police undertaking their duties as homophobic or being anti-gay. This has never been the position of the organisation,” the release added.
The organisation says it has made several attempts to intervene but has been unsuccessful in its bid to rein in the culprits, some of whom are involved in frequent internal fisticuffs as well as criminal offences including robberies.
“J-FLAG has met and collaborated with a broad range of stakeholders, including the police, the member of parliament for the constituency, the mayor, the Ministry of Health, the councillor, the Child Development Agency, church leaders and representatives of the business community but the outcomes have not been significant enough to address the behavioural issues from which these issues stem,” the organisation explained as it highlighted the need for the homeless gays to be assisted through a residential rehabilitative care centre.
“Regrettably, despite the efforts of staff of both J-FLAG and Jamaica AIDS Support for Life and our partners, we have been unable to secure a property to undertake the intervention. In most cases, proprietors are reluctant to sign a lease agreement with us because of the fear that incidents such as that which occurred on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 (will occur),” the group said in reference to an incident in New Kingston in which rowdy gays set fire to and blocked a section of Lady Musgrave Road during one of their regular internal feuds.
Last year in a Sunday Observer undercover report, several homosexuals who had been cast out of their homes and communities and were living on the streets of Kingston, including some with the dreaded HIV virus, were banned from the Kingston premises of these two prominent advocacy groups for bad behaviour.
These males, some of whom are commercial sex workers, complained that they no longer had the full support of advocates J-FLAG nor JASL, charging that they had left them defenceless against attacks from hostile ‘homophobes’ and even police officers bent on getting them off the streets.

    If these criminal are locked up and put in regular population which might beat them to sickness, you’ll see how fast JFLAG protests about their rights to be protected in lockup. Why doesn’t jflag build its own lockup for these criminal so the police can do their jobs? In business there exists supply and demand. When they get these criminals (supply) off the streets they can then start prosecuting the more powerful (demand) ones like the lawyers. What ever happened to the peter king tape? They know who the higher up ones are. What ever happened to that JLP (Jamaica Labour Party) politician charged with buggery, who Police reported that he and another man held down a man at his St Andrew residence and sodomised him. The injured man reportedly made a report to the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offences and Child Abuse (CISOCA) and nothing came of it? JFLAG, CISOCA & our government (any party) will FAIL to act when some of these people are in the wrong.

    JFLAG IS THERE TO HELP THOSE IN NEED. SOME OF THESE BAD BREED SERPENTS THINK THEY CAN GUH USE TO PEOPLE DEM FACILITY FI DO THEM NASTINESS AND THEY (JFLAG) MUST COMPLY WITH THEM.

    JFLAG CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE, RULES ARE RULES. IF YOU CAN’T ABIDE BY THEM THEN DO YOUR NEXT BEST. IF YOU PREFER MAKING YOUR MONEY ON THE STREETS THEN SO BE IT. BUT JFLAG SEH DEM NAH SUPPORT DI CRIMINAL ACTIVITIES. SUH DEM COWARD BWOY NEED FI STOP USE THE ORGANIZATION NAME AS EXCUSE FI DEM NASTY DUTTY LIVING.

    I AM NOT IN SUPPORT OF THEIR LIFESTYLE, BUT WHILE THERE IS HELP FOR THEM THEY MUST ABIDE BY THE REGULATIONS SET. LOCK DEM UP WHEN DEM COMMIT CRIMES ETC. JFLAG SEH A NUH FI DEM RESPONSIBILITY. END OF STORY. I WONDER IF DEM KNOW WHAT HELP IS BY THE WAY.
