More outraged civilians and soldiers are once again at the centre of a dispute that is making rounds on social media. In this altercation, a team of police officers are also present and they are accused of being the gasoline to the burning anger of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF).
The video shows a member of the JDF punching a man in the middle of a crowd. The soldier is dragged away from the man shortly after, seconds later a soldier strides up to the crowd, gun in hand as he appears to be charging at someone.
As the video continues, he is subdued by his colleagues and the residents continue to argue with one particular female shouting, “the police dem come give him strength.”
The location of the altercation and the time has not yet been confirmed, but the footage was dated June 28.
An investigation has been launched into the circumstances of the situation as, according to Loop News, sources from the police high command confirmed that they have a copy of the footage.
Several weeks ago the JDF started probing another dispute that occurred at a checkpoint in the Denham Town Zone of Special Operation. The altercation that happened on May 4 was also caught on camera, showing soldiers in an argument with a female and after shoves were exchanged, the situation escalated to the point where the soldiers began beating civilians with their guns.
A day after this video surfaced another video also was released, showing a soldier and a pregnant female arguing in the same area. The pregnant woman was eventually kicked in the belly by the JDF member during their dispute.
