Prominent businessman robbed, beaten downtown Kingston
Thursday, May 02, 2013 | 1:06 PM

KINGSTON, Jamaica – Business operators in downtown Kingston are urging the police to carry out speedy investigations into this morning’s incident where a business operator was robbed at gun point.
Reports are that the victim, said to be a brother of Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, was at his place of business early Thursday morning when men entered the premises and attacked him.

He was beaten by the men who escaped with an undetermined sum of money.
“Police need to step up their presence in the area this behaviour from criminals is unacceptable,” one angry business operator fumed.
The businessman, who out of fear asked not to be named, was supported by several other people who said the occurence has left them concerned.

  • Too much says:

    Morning everybody……Bwoi I don’t know what to say…..should I be happy that everybody is feeling it, or sad that the crime scourge spreading like wildfire? What I can say, is yesterday I was reading some blogger responses to this very story. And one person said, “they shudda cut his throat”. Now mi was jus in shock and amazement that somebody even had that thought, because at the end of the day, this could happen to any of us. All mi cudda think is if people could actually like such a comment, we in a worst situation than i thought. The fact that it start reach Portia, I don’t know what diffence it make cauz she see the crime stats everyday just like the rest of us, she probably gets more info than the media gets. So is not even who in govt can fix this. It start with us and the things we sometime glorify and turn a blind eye to. God help we…..cauz trus mi it baaddddd

    U know, ppl have been criticizing her for not mentioning any actions to be taken to stem crime in her budget debates & 2 days later, her brother got robbed & beaten like many ordinary citizens in Jamaica. I naw put my mout a grung an tawk, but mi glad a him it happen tuh. Di only ting cudda betta is if it happen to a top government minister, cuz wid dem private security guarding dem yard, or JCF appointed body guards dem feel dem untouchable suh dem nuh care wah happen to we. Dats y mi neva have no sympathy fi Peter Bunting weh day. kmt.

  • ace says:

I mean this is happening in most countries but Jamaica has been on this path of violence and mayhem for far too long and the elected officials don’t seem to have a handle on the situation so what the hell are they getting paid for? and why broadcast it like he is exempt from crime and violence ( kiss me damn teeth).

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    Cindy and ace, I do concur with both of your statements. This is a message to the “poor people” lover that poor people still await pon har love. She gi Bunting position that he isn’t suited for, she nah call fi death penalty (which would bring a few permanent job positions) she a raid NHT, nah address the issues of life and death. Not even the school violence she nu address…shit, obama address police and citizen at war an all have a day fi dem meet and drink beer…NO PORTIA a RASS! not one redstripe she nu offa nubaddy.

  • Cindy Royal says:

    True that Bebe re “today for me, tomorrow for you”, but a long time regular ppl suffering at the hands of criminals & these ppl don’t care so ppl find it hard to have sympathy for them or theirs. It sad, but a just suh it guh wen things happen to them.

  • honeybee says:

    @Cindy wey u sey Portia doe watch tv? Well I hope she read the papers because this no normal at all.

    I was talking to ma self the other day (no mi no crazy) and I said to self: The Minister of security and the PM for the “poor” wont do a damn thing about the crime wave until crime reach one of them doorstep.

    Portia is no different from Bruce when it comes to not speaking up on issues affecting jcans such as crime, Bruce was not verbal either, so one isn’t better than the other.

    Right at this moment Portia is a very bussy lady…..NHT money is on her mind! When Bruce wanted to use NHT funds Portia said NO, now look what she’s doing she using that same funds to build houses for folk in her constituency. So only the the poor folks who wave the orange flage need houses, FU*CK the green flag poor folks. Bwoy, jamaica will never betta because people in power only look out for their people!

  • All me can doe a read and laugh, @ obs, yuh u bad to di bone, it does’nt matter which government in power, Jamaica is always a country of violence.

  • Real says:

    well portia seh shi nuh watch news………… i guess wen she get diphone call shi find out wah gwaan a Jamaica……………shi can go tell him seh a lie him a tell
