“We Did Terrible Things”; Court Hears ‘Chucky’ Brown’s Confession Letter

119

Evidence heard in the Home Circuit Court is that in 2014, Constable Collis Chucky Brown, confessed in a letter that he and a Police team did terrible things.

Brown reportedly made the confession in a letter to the country’s then Police Commissioner. The letter was reportedly written after Brown was taken into custody by INDECOM in January 2014. It was read in Court yesterday by INDECOM Assistant Commissioner, Hamish Campbell.

In the letter, Constable Brown stated he had a meeting with the person who was the JCF Force Chaplain in 2014. Brown stated that he told the Chaplain – “Bishop, my team and I did some terrible things.”

Constable Brown continued – “the man of God said to me, you killed some nasty niggers”. The letter said to be written by Constable Brown also stated that the High Command is in the habit of blaming INDECOM and Jamaicans for Justice for low police morale.

But Brown notes that neither JFJ nor INDECOM were present when the police killing squad was being given orders to do what he described as terrible things.

Evidence heard in Court is that in the 2014 letter, Constable Brown commented – “to all my foot soldiers islandwide I implore you to desist from those duties and return to your normal eight-hour duties.”

Brown is before the Home Circuit Court in Downtown Kingston accused of conspiring to murder three men between 2009 and 2012.

This afternoon, the Jury was made to listen to audio excerpts from a video which was played in Court yesterday.
