PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad — A violent protest over the police elimination of a well known hoodlum and menace to society caused mayhem in the city of Port of Spain on Monday when friends, neighbours and family members of hoodlum Akeil ‘Christmas’ James (22) was killed by members of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) in the early hours of Monday morning on Calvary Hill, Laventille.

James was said to be a main gunman for the very disruptive and unruly Port of Spain gang called the Rasta City Gang on the hills of Laventille. James was reported to have been responsible for the recent killing of Prison Officer Davindra Boodooram.

Boodooram was shot several times in his car whilst stuck in traffic after leaving work in front of the St Mary’s College for boys on Fredrick Street in Port of Spain.

A disturbing audio note apparently made by a member of the Rasta City Gang was shared via social media in which a man threatens to kill members of the TTPS. The man in the audio encouraged his mates to “kill out the police”.

An autistic man was said to have also been killed in the mayhem on Monday.

  4. Very sad that people’s lives are being taken. However, this gang used the name “Rasta” without knowing what it stands for. Rasta does not represent “hoodlum” nor murderer. Condolences to the prison guard and the young man who lost their lives.

  5. Those are not rastas learn your culture rastas are peaceful Jah followers who are non violent I swear American changes stories in other countries just to make them look bad. And I’m a trini Rasta so I should know. Dumbass America.

  6. Total BS!! Correction, police entered and a known criminal home in the earlier part of the morning and took matters into their own hands, they shot the unarmed criminal in his back multiple times, numerous witnesses saw the incident. The kid with autism was also shot and killed by police as he was arriving home from work,he was also unarmed. No police is a judge or have the right to take matters into their own hands, thats total lawlessness and premeditated murder!!

  7. Also it was clear to known officers in higher authority that the criminal killed was not the killer for the prison officer who was murdered. Ian Alleyne on crime watch spoke on the killer and the valid evidence that he was given and also assure that the man murdered by the police is not the killer! So again the riot in POS Trinidad was based on officers taking matters into their own hands, stepping above the law, mudering an unarmed man,criminal or not! Thats the reason for the riot+ the factz that the officers also murdered an autism young man. And yet the officers are not being held accountable!! Factz

  8. Utter ******* written here. Only to gain likes and shares. No 2nd man was killed, he was shot in the leg. You prefer to base your story on rumors and voice noted that was PROVEN wrong. What kind of ******* “news agency” is this. Total shameful!
