Sister of alleged bandit says police did not have to kill him

The sister of alleged bandit, Simeon Joseph, has said that the family of the deceased will be exploring legal options after his funeral.

Joseph was shot dead  on Friday night when he and two other men  allegedly attempted to rob a Special Police Constable who was in plain clothes in George V Park.

Joseph, a Balata resident, is reported to have been shot in the chest.

Miranda Job, the sister of the deceased, told reporters that her brother did not deserve to die that way.

“Everybody in their family has somebody that is not a well being – not a well grown seed, no matter how you try as a parent or as a guardian,” Job said.

“You try your best to have your child grow up in a perfect way but it does not happen  to be the way you want it,” the sister explained.

As far as she was concerned, the police officer could have shot her brother in the leg or arm but did not have to shoot to kill.

“I will not take it lightly as he is dead,” Job asserted.

She made it clear that she was by no means suggesting that the police officer did not have to defend himself.

“But he did not have to kill him,” Job said.

She told reporters that at home, the  family did not know the deceased to be a troublemaker.

“To me he he is a perfect child and knowing it happened that way – the way he died, it is embarrassing but we did not expect him to die that way,” Job remarked.

She disclosed that although the police have spoken to the family, no mention was ever made of who fired the fatal gunshot.

“We just heard from the media that they were the ones who did the killing but we never actually heard from them: ‘This officer did it,’ Only from the media we heard that an officer killed him – the police themselves never told us it was an officer that killed him,” Job said.

She explained that the funeral is being planned for next Friday.

    I agree with the sister, he shouldn’t have been shot in the chest. He should have been shot in both eyes so that he will never be tempted to rob and steal again. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

      You got it, with all she coming deh with. Mate eh die enough with that foolishness. You have the right to use deadly force to defend yourself if necessary. So if he had killed the police officer she would just say sorry and move on and her criminal brother would keep doing his evil deeds? I watch mate picture and he have the signs of doing no good, and they could not see it? Says alot about what is normal for her and her family. One down, hopefully the police will take out many more. Give us back our streets and our homes. (Words deleted)

    Even though the community is over-burdened with crimes we should not harbor this depraved indifference to human life. The officer was fully justified to defend himself. He had to protect his life by any means necessary. My point is this. Too many people seem to be too overly excited for the lost of a human life. We have to refrain from that otherwise our society would descend into quagmire.

    I’m sick and tired of St Lucians encouraging their loved ones in criminality and slackness. It would have better served this woman if she had mourned her loss in silence. What was the police officer supposed to do, what would u or any other indevidual do in the situation. Being stuck up by there men posing a threat to his life. What would your normal human instinct and reaction be. To shot in the direction of whoever is posing the threat. That’s obvious, so now that your loved one has died I’m supposed to feel sorry for him. Girl go and die together with your damned worthless good for nothing brother u worthless piece. Just recently a couple was unducted, the woman raped the man bitten up. Are we not tired of lucians being subjected to a lack of freedom to roam wherever we may. Girl shut your assistance and tell your brother leave and let leave don’t interfere with ppls livity. He has a right to life and so does anyone else. The simplest of animal’s on earth Wil defend their life and property. It’s everyone’s birth right to protect their life and property remember that u idiot. Chooooopsssss

    Yeah, the officer should have shot him in the leg allowing him to retaliate by stabbing the police officer in the chest, a fatal stab. The news would then be that a plain clothes officer had been killed and the killers were at large.

    Since her brother is a perfect child at home, and not knowing that he had committed that crime, I wonder if she would not be saying to persons in her circle that the officer should have shot the perpetrator in the chest instead!

    If it’s my family member who does this sh*t I would wish that he had been wounded and grieve and move the hell on. Choops tann fanm, you do not have children to raise or a husband to occupy your time?

If is money she has so to take legal actions, why didn’t she use it to take care of her brother that did not have and decided to go get it forcefully from an innocent man???

    The fact that you can make a statement and say that “Everybody in their family has somebody that is not a well being – not a well grown seed, no matter how you try as a parent or as a guardian,” suggests that you knew your brother to be somewhat of a “not well grown seed”. No one except the officer and bandits knows the circumstances as to why the thief, your brother got shot in the chest…..could have been the angle he came from or something else. At the end of the day, he had no right attempting to rob someone of their property….that they themselves worked hard for. It is sad that he is dead, but he’s only suffering the consequences of his actions.

    This is a typical reason why there continue to be a high rate of crime in Lucia. Every time it’s their non law abiding relative who gets the other end of the shaft, they all crying out. Today he is a good boy, but out there doing crime. The police should bring your entire family in for questioning, because I certain they know who he left with that evening. We need more boots on the ground leaving an element of surprise that they will not know who’s a cop and who isn’t.

    What the hell was that officer thinking…..doesn’t he know he has to be stabbed and killed by the bandit? And that a gun is just for show? You right sister…..he should have let your brother kill him instead!

    To the sister, i know u are greaving and i feel ypur pain. But im so sorry to remind you of the words of Jesu Christ, in Matt , 26:52. Those who live by the sword will die by the sword. And again in Gal, 6:7, whatever a man soweth that shall he also reap. And then again in St. John, 6:63 says, These word that i speak to you, they are spirit and life. My sister because we don’t read the Bible, we don’t comprehend life. My advice to you, leave this in the hand of the Almighty God. Nothing happens without he approves. Not him doing it, but he is God he knows all, sees all and all power belongs to him. Your brother shouldn’t have died this way but, when one is transgressing of the Law, he must expect consequences. My advice to you is pray.for yourself and the rest of your living family, and help them not to make the same mistake. May the Lord strengthen you and your family, and dont forget on matter what people says u are a child of God. Keep trusting, accept my condolences, God bless!
