Dear Editor,With a La Penitence Market vendor nursing injuries after being shot to his head on Easter Monday, reportedly while trying to ward off four bandits from robbing his wife as stated in the press, whilst a company of unarmed and hapless City Constables screamed for help, speaks volumes of the profound mismanagement of the Georgetown Municipality.What is the use of deploying unarmed City Constables in a crime ridden city? It shows a clear lack of trust and respect for their officers that they are not allowed to carry a firearm. What is the City Police Department doing with the firearms in their possession? Only making them available to the bodyguards and residential security that protect the King and Queen of the City.Just look at the City Constabulary training complex on Water Street which is in total ruins, but which was supposed to be rehabilitated since 2016, with a promise that emphasis would have been placed on recruitment and training. One could have only hoped that this facility would have been used to provide Police self-defence training to their recruits as a vital component of The Basic Recruitment Course. As a matter of fact, in order to be prepared for today’s dangerous and unpredictable world, City Constables need to learn self-defence for both armed and unarmed encounters. And what about the promise that they would have been sending batches of ranks for overseas training? Was this just another pie in the sky pipe dream by the Town Clerk?Arming the City Police would be an effective deterrent to criminal behaviour in the markets and around Georgetown; most cities in Europe and North America routinely arm their Police Officers, in part to deter criminal acts. Armed criminals operate in many wards in our capital. Given this, a failure to routinely arm the City Police gives armed criminals a strong advantage in terms of their ability to threaten and commit violence without any corresponding risk to themselves.Is it not time for the City Council’s Legal Affairs and Security Committee to make this rag tag disrespected poorly trained, poorly uniformed outfit into a professional, effective and esteemed Police force?Sincerely,Modi Sankar
…perpetrator to also face child rape chargeA mother and her older daughter, who physically assaulted the alleged rapist of their 15-year-old relative before stripping the man and forcing the wooden handle of a hammer inside his anus are expected to be charged for rape committed on the alleged rapist.The female duo was arrested in Bartica, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), on Wednesday morning shortly after the incident took place but they are presently on station bail.Meanwhile, the 28-year-old alleged rapist, a miner, who was hospitalised after the assault and rape, was discharged from the medical facility and taken into custody.Police Commander of Region Seven, Senior Superintendent Linden Lord, when contacted told Guyana Times on Friday that the file about the incidents has been completed and will be dispatched to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) on Monday.He stated that in the meanwhile, the two women and the alleged rapist were placed on station bail, pending the advice that comes from the DPP on the way forward.According to Commander Lord, in light of the actions of the two women, the recommendation by detectives is that they be charged with rape committed on the alleged rapist, however, the final say is with the DPP.On Wednesday the alleged rapist had the tables turned on him after the sister of the underage female with whom he forcefully had anal sex teamed up with her mother to reportedly teach him what they described in their statement as an “unforgettable lesson”.He is the boyfriend of the young girl’s sister and is said to usually visit their home in Bartica.Reports are that in the wee hours of Tuesday, the alleged rapist was at the home with the 15-year-old girl consuming alcohol.The teenager, who ended up sitting at the edge of her bed at some point, became intoxicated and it was then the miner reportedly took advantage of her.Hours after the ordeal, the teen contacted her mother and after notifying the woman about what occurred, she along with her older sister met with their mother.The alleged rapist was also requested to meet them. As he turned up at the address, he was invited to sit on a chair.Guyana Times understands that the 15-year-old’s mother bluntly asked the suspect if he engaged in anal sex with her younger daughter and the man denied. This newspaper was told that his teen girlfriend left her seat and dealt several punches to his face before lashing him repeatedly about his body with a mop stick.While this was happening, the aggravated mother went to her kitchen, retrieved a knife from the cupboard and dealt the miner several chops about his body.After the beating, the suspect confessed to having sex with the 15-year-old but claimed he had “oral” sex with the girl and not anal sex.The man’s girlfriend then left the room and quickly returned with a hammer.Not satisfied, the women then allegedly threatened to kill him. Less than a minute later, the woman and her older daughter teamed up to rip his clothes off and forcefully insert the wooden part of the hammer (handle) into his anus.
“Vanessa is a great player, so I understand why she plays, I just want to be able to help when I have the chance,” Starling said. Cal Poly interim coach Michelle Fortier said that the Broncos let Starling get to the line too much. “We needed to pressure the ball more, and we left Ally (Smith) in a bad position,” Fortier said. It was a tight game throughout the second half, and the controversial moment came with 46.4 seconds remaining in the game, the Coyotes (13-6 overall, 9-5 California Collegiate Athletic Association) protecting a 54-52 lead and inbounding the ball underneath their own basket. One official whistled a five-second call and awarded the ball to Cal Poly (5-14, 4-10). San Bernardino appeared to call timeout after the five-second call, and the Broncos didn’t find out that the timeout was awarded to San Bernardino until after they went into their huddle. “No. 44 (Starling) stepped up her game and took Wilt’s place basically,” Cal Poly junior Porsche’ Kirksey said. Starling, a senior, was 6-of-11 shooting from the field and 10-of-15 shooting from the free-throw line. SAN BERNARDINO – The mission for most teams when facing the Cal State San Bernardino women’s basketball team is to shut down leading scorer Vanessa Wilt. Cal Poly Pomona did exactly that by holding her to 10 points, but Mariqueta Starling filled the void, scoring a career-high 22 points and grabbing a game-high nine rebounds off the bench to lead the Coyotes past Cal Poly Pomona 57-53 at Coussoulis Arena on Tuesday night. “It’s frustrating because I thought we had put ourselves in a position to tie it,” Fortier said. Cal State coach Kevin Becker said the official closest to the Coyotes bench, Debbie Kotani, heard his timeout request before the official on the baseline gave the five-second call. After retaining possession, the Coyotes’ Ashlee Ford scored on a layup with 27.3 seconds to play, making it 56-52 and putting the Broncos into desperation mode. A trio of players led Cal Poly in scoring, with Jessica Hopkins, Ashley Moody and Lauren Kitaguchi scoring 10 points apiece. The game started off sluggishly for both teams, who just finished a grueling trip to Humboldt State and Sonoma State on Saturday. Cal Poly shot 22 percent from the field in the first half, Cal State just 29 percent as the Coyotes led 24-19. Cal State held Cal Poly scoreless for more than eight minutes after Cal Poly led early by nine points. “They’re athletic. They gave us trouble with their pressure and took the lanes away,” Becker said. But it was Starling, Wilt and the Coyotes who were able to avenge a loss at Pomona in December. Becker, who missed the trip north after breaking bones in his face two weeks ago, was glad to have Starling. “She (Starling) has sacrificed more for this team than anyone else and she has done it with a smile on her face,” he said. “We told her she would have her time.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arsenal and Liverpool target Alexandre Lacazette says he has not made his mind up about his future – but it would be hard to turn down Barcelona or Real Madrid.The striker was in stunning form for Lyon last season, finishing as the top scorer in Ligue 1 and attracting interest from all of Europe’s top sides.The 24-year-old is expected to complete a big money move this summer but at this moment he admits nothing has been decided.“I have not made my decision. I will go on holiday, leave my agent to discuss things, for him to look after all that,” Lacazette told Le Parisien.“I am not worried. It won’t worry me at all. As soon as I have decided, I want it all to happen quickly.“When? That is the question. I could stay at Lyon next season and have a terrible season, I could leave and have an incredible season.“Everything depends on the destination. It would have to be for a Champions League club. Barcelona and Real Madrid – you don’t reject them.“But today, between leaving and staying, it is not 50-50 – it is zero. I am not thinking about it. I am going to enjoy the national team and I will think about it after.” Alexandre Lacazette 1

Damien O’Hara’s star studded ‘Damo’s Dream’ side recaptured the Arranmore Challenge Cup for the first time since 2012.In another superb weekend of top-class football it was Damo’s Dream who came out on top after a dramatic penalty shoot-out against Real Lypis. Real Lypis reached the final courtesy of comprehensive 3-0 victories over The Rebels and Clannad Celtic respectively.However, Bernie Lenty’s side needed a dramatic last minute header from John Sweeney against The Saturday’s in their final group game just to advance to the knockout stages.Damo’s Dream strolled through the group stages, but narrowly overcame a spirited Barhale side 1-0 in the quarter-finals thanks to a goal from player-of-the-tournament Paul McVeigh.However, in a thrilling semi-final Damo’s Dream overcame FC Palatico on penalties after the game finished 2-2. In a scoreless first-half the game sprung to life after the interval and FC Palatico took the lead from a corner.McVeigh hit back but Kyle Black look like he had won it for FC Palatico when he scored an absolute screamer with a few minutes left to play.However, Damo’s Dream showed great character and Davitt Walsh was awarded a contentious penalty after Con McLaughlin adjudged Paul Sweeney to have bundled him over in the box.Walsh dusted himself down and converted the penalty to send the game to a penalty shoot-out.Damo’s Dream advanced to set up a cracking final with Real Lypis.The game ended 1-1 after normal time, Davitt Walsh fired Damo’s ahead in the first-half, but Damo’s roared back and equalised from a corner when Brian ‘Chucky’ McQueen headed home. Lypis looked the more likely to win it, John Sweeney hit a stunning strike which struck the inside of the post but it agonisingly rolled across the line and out to safety.The game went to penalties and when Real Lypis player Shaun Thomas sent his effort over the bar the cup was back with Damo’s Dream.Both sides have dominated the competition over the last number of years and have now played each other in three finals in the last five years.Damo’s Dream have won on penalties twice (2011, 2015) while Lypis defeated them 3-2 in 2013. It’s also the second year in-a-row that Lypis have heartbreakingly lost the final on penalties and the third year-in-a-row they’ve contested the final.They lost last year’s decider on penalties against Finn Harps.However, they haven’t lost a match in the competition in THREE years but that will be scant consolation to manager Bernie Lenty who was devastated to miss out on the title again.Early’s Bar was rocking into the early hours with Jerry as always providing top quality entertainment and banter throughout the night as all the teams joined together in celebration of a superb weekend.Sean O’Hara who had a superb tournament at the back for Damo’s danced his socks off all night and looked like the happiest man on the island having finally won back the Arranmore Challenge Cup.Known locally as ‘púca’ O’Hara did resemble a ghost early on Monday morning and seemed to be suffering badly from the effects of the excessive celebrations.The strong winds that lashed the island also made Paul McVeigh’s trendy haircut resemble Bobby Charlton’s comb-over from the 70’s.There was also widespread panic among the Scottish lads when they realised the exchange rate had plummeted over the weekend.Thankfully, members of the squad had brought the expensive Scottish vino ‘Buckfast’ with them and the emergency was averted.Daniel ‘Rocky’ O’Donnell was impressive all weekend on the pitch but it was his shirt on Sunday night that really turned heads.His Hawaii style shirt really stood out and completely overshadowed Christopher McGlynn’s ‘double-denim’ combination which clearly annoyed the Sligo IT student.Shane Elliott was as always dressed in his traditional Finn Harps clobber and was overheard telling a few impressionable young women on the island that his name was Kevin McHugh. 🙂As always it was another unbelievable weekend of football and craic and reiterated yet again why it’s regarded as one of the best football tournaments around.Well done to the committee and all involved with Arranmore United FC for yet again putting on a superb tournament.On a side note a special mention must go to Noel Early, this was the first year he had missed the tournament because he was doing the Cork marathon and his absence was felt.Noel a multiple winner of the Arranmore Challenge Cup over the years completed the marathon in a time of 3hrs and 55minutes.Well done Noel and well done to all the teams that participated in the competition.The countdown to JBH 2016 has begun. 🙂O’HARA’S ‘DREAM’ COMES TRUE AS THEY RECAPTURE ARRANMORE CHALLENGE CUP was last modified: June 2nd, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Arranmore Challenge CupJBHnewsSport
