T&T: Gangsters in Police Service?

Trinidad Express:-Allegations of gangsterism, brutality, bribery and indiscriminate slaughter were levelled against a group of named police officers by members of the Laventille community on Tuesday night.

The allegations were made during a meeting at the Spree Simon Centre, where acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams, Laventille West MP Fitzgerald Hinds and other senior police officers met with residents to hear their concerns over the killing of Mickel “Buckman” Lancaster on Saturday.

Police said Lancaster was armed and was killed in a shoot-out at his home. But Lancaster’s relatives and people in the community are disputing this, saying he was unarmed and was executed by rogue police officers.
