Bun Batty Man, Str8 Pumz Mi seh .... Facebook anti gay group

The group started sometime today  with only twenty members so far, you are asked to report this group immediately but remember we have removed similar Jamaican groups from Facebook before.

Songs such as Capleton's Battyman Fi Get Boom (gays are to be killed) is posted as captioned in the screen pics above also songs like "Man Nuh Lotion Man" (men do not lotion men - which suggests romantic intimacy between men) as well from Capleton who is deemed the fireman leader against gays with his music as Buju Banton is out of business serving time for his own troubles. 

Act now friends but there is a strangeness to this group as many of the members have been accused of being "closet cases"   which is a fundamental issue not properly looked into that of downlow accusing others of being gay to the point of outright homophobia to supposedly cover their own tracks or to enact revenge on some person or issue they may have had. This dangerous practice if it is that what obtains here can have disastrous effects.

UPDATE October 11, 2011 - last checks reveal the page is gone. The so called "invasion" by gay members of a previous group into a popular T-shirt company's Facebook page is also creating some unease as the activity in that group has since quadrupled literally with heated threads between so called straight members who are upset with reign the gays are given by the administrators of that group and the openness of the gay men on there as well.

Be Vigilant Be Safe

Peace and tolerance

What the heck is up with those lyrics? (what can I say? My mum was raised outside of JA, I am bad with the lingo) if I understand correctly please help me out here, gay men have too much sex with women? (oxymoron??).

JFLAG Excludes Homeless MSM from IDAHOT Symposium on Homelessness

In a shocking move JFLAG decided not to invite or include homeless MSM in their IDAHO activity for 2013 thus leaving many in wonderment as to the reason for their existence or if the symposium was for "experts" only while offering mere tokenism to homeless persons in the reported feeding program. LISTEN TO THE AUDIO ENTRY HERE sad that the activity was also named in honour of one of JFLAG's founders who joined the event via Skype only to realise the issue he held so dear in his time was treated with such disrespect and dishonour. Have LGBT NGOs lost their way and are so mainstream they have forgotten their true calling?

What to Do .....

When Arrested and taken to a Police Station you have the right to:

a. Make a phone call: to a lawyer or relative or anyone
b. Ask to see a lawyer immediately: if you don’t have the money ask for a Duty Council
c. A Duty Council is a lawyer provided by the state
d. Talk to a lawyer before you talk to the police
e. Tell your lawyer if anyone hits you and identify who did so by name and number
f. Give no explanations excuses or stories: you can make your defense later in court based on what you and your lawyer decided
g. Ask the sub officer in charge of the station to grant bail once you are charged with an offence
h. Ask to be taken before a justice of The Peace immediately if the sub officer refuses you bail
i. Demand to be brought before a Resident Magistrate and have your lawyer ask the judge for bail
j. Ask that any property taken from you be listed and sealed in your presence
Cases of Assault:An assault is an apprehension that someone is about to hit you

The following may apply:
1) Call 119 or go to the station or the police arrives depending on the severity of the injuries

2) The report must be about the incident as it happened, once the report is admitted as evidence it becomes the basis for the trial

3) Critical evidence must be gathered as to the injuries received which may include a Doctor’s report of the injuries.

4) The description must be clearly stated; describing injuries directly and identifying them clearly, show the doctor the injuries clearly upon the visit it must be able to stand up under cross examination in court.

5) Misguided evidence threatens the credibility of the witness during a trial; avoid the questioning of the witnesses credibility, the tribunal of fact must be able to rely on the witness’s word in presenting evidence

6) The court is guided by credible evidence on which it will make it’s finding of facts

7) Bolster the credibility of a case by a report from an independent disinterested party.
