New emerging dancehall artiste Brysco, who is trending at number 1 in Jamaica for his raunchy single ‘Code’, has been detained on the side of the road during his Livestream, which captured the incident.
The video was posted online showing the singer in a confrontation with two police officers who were not pleased with him recording them even though the female officer had her device out doing the same, which it would seem, prompted Brysco to start the Livestream.
Brysco was ordered to hand over his phone by the male police officer, but he initially refused to comply as he objected that they were only recording him to spin a narrative that they “style” him and lock him up.
“No yuh can’t tek mi phone from mi bredda,” Brysco constantly refused, and he was warned by the male police officer, who was insisting on confiscating the device, to not make things get “worse”.
“Yuh under arrest, pass di phone,” the male police emphasized reaching to take the phone away just as the video ends.
While the reason for the arrest has not yet been revealed, the short video has started a debate on Instagram by persons who were more siding with the “Code” singer for having the right to video the officers, especially since the police were also doing their own recording.
Ssussjamaica believed officers who exercise unjust behaviours should be “removed from frontline duties”.
“WHAT RIGHTS DOES THE POLICE HAS TO CONFISCATE PERSONS PHONE?” Ssussjamaica inquired, “THIS IS UPCOMING ARTIST @brysco_music _MUSIC BEING HARRASSED AND MANIPULATED BY MEMBERS OF THE @jamaicaconstabularyforce THIS IS WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS….. WE ARE CALLING FOR THESE OFFICERS BE REMOVE FROM FRONTLINE DUTIES.”
thick_mamiii26 felt the fact that Brysco is an artist is making persons react “bias” about the situation, and stated, “Mi say Jamaicans ppl yuh see unuh fuck up unuh bias yf a tru him ah artist Mek him move him blc.”
“Dat nuh right harassment to a citenzen this y ..the security officers notl all of them ..k I’m saying in general… at unprofessional bcuz some of us felt the justice system is too teire…. party….use of unecessary force ..result in fatality could b avoided some.. case..need proper training ..n category,” one_wurld said.
“The things that mashing up Jamaica is us the ppls two wrong caah mek right and we need to stop buck fuckery that why Jamaica not going to get better because 1 set saying the popo right and the other saying the civilians right so how we going to have properly balance when it comes to the right theirs a right way and a wrong way police is their to protect all if us not just middle class and rich and poor ppls get to handle any way and civilian need to have a little more respect because if the officers is going to approach a person in a negative manner he or she going to react the same way so pick a side,” carlenelewis390 commented.
User me_upset_ppl had an interesting opinion, which has always been speculated by Jamaicans, stating that dancehall artists who sing about illegal activities and crime are an easy and frequent target for law enforcement.
“Can’t sing bout murder and cyber crime and expect to not be harassed by the cops. Just saying,” me_upset_ppl said.
