The Jamaica Constabulary Force, JCF, says it’s investigating what it’s calling the improper conduct of some of its members.
This, after a video, emerged on social media of a man in handcuffs following what’s being described as an altercation with a crossdresser.
The man in handcuffs appears to be mocked, assaulted and forced to expose himself.
William Mitchell reports.
It’s unclear when the incident took place.
But a 40-second video of the incident has been viewed thousands of times since it appeared on social media, yesterday.
In the video, a man with locks is seen handcuffed.
He’s heard insisting that nothing happened.
But, the men who had him detained told him to remove his pants.
In the video, the handcuffed man’s genitals were exposed.
A condom that the handcuffed man was wearing is also inspected by the others in the video.
A person who appears to be a male crossdresser is also seen in the video saying a variety of sexual activities occurred before he and the man who was in handcuffs were interrupted.
A marked police vehicle can clearly be seen in the background of the video.
In a statement today, the Constabulary’s Inspectorate and Professional Standards Oversight Bureau, IPROB, confirmed the police were involved.
IPROB says it’s aware of the video being circulated on social media where the police intervened in an altercation between a male and a person it describes as a ‘cross-dresser’.
The re-branded inspectorate of the constabulary says the conduct of its members seen in the video isn’t in keeping with JCF protocols and procedures.
IPROB is appealing for witnesses or anyone with information about the incident to make contact with Bureau at 876-838-3084 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
