KIDS BRUTALLY BEAT THE HOMELESS on Fri Jan 01, 2010 3:44 pm

Homeless people in downtown Kingston and Montego Bay, St James, are being brutally attacked by kids.

Checks by THE WEEKEND STAR revealed that at least seven homeless persons, three in Kingston and four in Montego Bay, have been injured recently.

While some of the cases have been minor, there have been life-threatening instances. In one of the most recent, a 30-year-old man's head was bashed in with a concrete block while he slept along Duke Street in downtown Kingston on December 21.

The Kingston Central police said witnesses claimed to have seen a group of about a dozen kids running away after one of them dropped the block on the man's head. Help was later sought for the unconscious man by the witnesses.

Corporal Peter Wellington of the Area Four police said in attacks such as these kids are usually known to be the suspects.

"Especially like now when they are on holidays, they can wreak havoc on the streets ... . You know the saying, the devil finds work for idle hands. Well, this is something like that ... ," he said, adding that he was also aware of other cases of attacks.

sleep in peace

In pointing out other cases, Special Corporal Clive Benjamin of the Island Special Constabulary Force said that the homeless men and women "cannot even sleep in peace" in Montego Bay.

He said while patrolling downtown MoBay in the Christmas season, he encountered two incidents where homeless men were complaining they were attacked by children while sleeping.

"... I was on patrol and saw two of them after they were attacked and trust me, they got it really bad ... It was a sight not any and anybody could stomach," he said.

Both men, he said, were beaten with pieces of boards and metals by the kids. They were reportedly hit all over their bodies, leaving them unable to even walk as they had to be lifted into police vehicles which transported them to hospital.

Witnesses later told police more than eight kids were seen beating the men.

Police warned that if caught committing these act, the kids can find themselves in trouble with the law.
