            [post_content] => The five cops in Jamaica that were taken into custody on a case that involved a school girl being shot in the head last month were all charged. The cop who was responsible for firing the shot was charged with wounding, while the other four officers were accused and penalized for misconduct in public office. The officers Corporal Kirk Haye, Corporal Shawn Abrahams, Constable Warren Ramsay, Constable Damion Gillespie, and Constable Archibald Wright, appeared in court and were granted released on bail. However, they are not permitted to leave the island while the court still decides their final charges.

On Wednesday last week, the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) issued charges to the five officers who are all linked to the Jamaica Constabulary Force's Mobile Reserve Division. According to a report, further details of Haye's charge state that he was held accountable for wounding with intent and failing to provide INDECOM with statements. As for the other four, they were accused of failing to issue statements to the Commission, in addition to failing to answer questions that were asked during in their interrogations.

While Abrahams, Gillespie, Ramsay and Wright were all granted bail in the amount of J$500,000 (US$3,951); Haye was required to pay up J$1 million (US$7,902) to be released. As they roam on bail, the officers were instructed to give up their travel documents. Stop orders were also put up for each of they at all ports of entry and exit and they must report to the police station nearest to their homes three days a week.

Subsequent to the incident occurring at around 7:15 a.m. on the 30th of June, INDECOM immediately launched an investigation. They found out that an illegal taxi man who was transporting students of Convent of Mercy Academy and St Georges College was stopped by lawmen who opened fire. In the event, one of the female students was struck in her head. The girl had to undergo surgery at the Kingston Public Hospital and is said to be recovering after being released from the Intensive Care Unit.

69-year-old Manning who was the longest serving minister for the twin island up until September last year, died less than 24 hours succeeding being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia on the 2th of July. An announcement which shared that a regional fund will be established to offer housing for low income people throughout the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), the Dominican Republic and Haiti, was made in his eulogy done by his son, Brian Manning. The fund will bare the name "Patrick Manning Development Fund" and it will be housed at the International Financial Centre. The young Manning also called for the reorganizing of the Divine Echoes Orchestra that was demobilized by the People's Partnership government when they replaced the administeration lead by Manning in 20120. The younger Manning also called for the re-establishment of the Divine Echoes Orchestra that was disbanded by the People’s Partnership government soon after it replaced the Manning administration in 2010. He said that his father always believed that music was a great way for young people to express their energy, spirits and lift lives. Manning went on to say that his father was never an accumulator of wealth but a man that "lived a life of love and service". “He was a father to many and touched many lives. He always led by example,” Manning said, adding that the policies of his father’s administrations were aimed at alleviating poverty, improving education and providing housing to all people. Some of the attendees of the 3 hour and 15 minutes long church service were the President of Dominica, Charles Savarin, the prime ministers of St Lucia, St Kitts, and Grenada. Former Bahamian prime minister Hubert Ingraham was also among the mourners. Manning who served as the Trinidad and Tobago's fourth and sixth prime minister, was born on August 17, 1946. He is survived by his wife, Hazel, a former education minister and two sons.
