The Jeff Cumberbatch Column – The Forgotten Prisoner of Dodd’s

When reading comics as a young boy, the lure of monsters and bogeymen proved irresistible. There was the mummy, still wrapped in his now tattered burial shroud; the obligatory skeleton that somehow or other drove fear in the hearts of men of flesh and blood; and the zombie with his mottled bleeding flesh evoking repulsion in the pursued, lest he should grab you and do to you whatever it is that zombies do. In those days, with the emphasis on the shock value of the dead coming back to life, the monster that intrigued me most was one, seemingly caught forever in the penumbra between the dead and the undead; the forgotten prisoner of Castle Mare.

Back then; I had no idea of the genesis of this creature. I have since learnt that the image of the forgotten prisoner preceded the fictional account of his existence. From one internet source, “According to Greenberg’s Guide to Aurora Models, Aurora’s Bill Silverstein made a deal with Warren Publishing to create and promote new monster related kits, and in 1966 the Forgotten Prisoner was introduced. Later, in 1970, issue 34 of Creepy Magazine features a comic story of the Prisoner. Shane Johnson described it this way on the Aurora mail list:

The story is something of a retelling of Poe’s ‘The Cask of Amontillado,’ and tells of a Baron Sorgi and his archrival, Lord Basti, who were vying to tax the same small populace. One gets the other drunk, chains him to the wall of a hidden wine cellar, and then is killed himself as he tries to leave the room. Both men are forgotten, and never seen again. 

I was reminded of the forgotten prisoner of Castle Mare during the last week when a story, only slightly less wretched, appeared in another section of the press. It related that a local man, Mr. Winston Agard, having been charged with theft, and perfunctorily placed on remand to await trial, spent the period of a decade in custody before being eventually afforded his day in court last week.

That there could have been such an occurrence in 21st century Barbados that boasts ever so often of punching above its weight globally beggars belief; that no heads have rolled in a system that claims adherence to the Westminster system of governance is even more astonishing; that is, at least until one recalls that ours is a mere export-model of Westminster and that the virtue of voluntary resignation is not one ordinarily to be found or practiced among the members our public service.

The Attorney General is right. The entire affair is “totally inexcusable”. And it is owed to a failure or a congeries of failures of the entire system. Of those who would have diarized the date for the resumption of his matter after the initial period of remand and then made no further inquiry as to his non-appearance on that date; by those who would have been responsible for his physical reappearance after remand; and by those in whom no suspicion would have even been aroused by an individual on remand for such an extended period, the observant prison officer who reported the anomaly excepted of course.

It seems stranger than fiction too that Mr Agard himself never raised any query as to his situation during all this time, although I do concede that I am ignorant of whether any facility existed for him to do so.

That he may be legally entitled at least to monetary compensation from the state for the great tort that has been done to him seems beyond dispute; I can think of no fewer than four of his guaranteed fundamental rights that were arguably and unjustifiably infringed in this episode: his right to personal liberty (s.13); his right to freedom of movement(s. 22); that to secure protection of the law (s. 18) and. finally, probably the right to protection from inhuman treatment (s.15).

All that remains for final determination is whether Mr Agard should be compelled to seek redress ex propio motu [of his own accord] or whether the State, despite its relative penury, should charitably make an offer of compensation to him as an admission of its vicarious snafu.

The latter seems only right.

    What about his constitutional right to a speedy and fair trial?

    Everything nowadays is reduced to dollars and cents on the mistaken belief that money solves everything!!

    I am not for one minute saying the “victim” should not get just monetary compensation but for me the bigger issue is the name or names of the people who let this happen.

    If solely monetary compensation for the “victim” is considered as a solution a whole set of criminals is left on the loose to create other “victims”.

    Does a lawyer or a judge swear an oath to protect the rights of those they serve?

    A judge who does not produce a decision in a timely manner does the same sort of an injustice as was done to this man.

    As we see from discussions on outstanding decisions, the problem is endemic in the system from the very top.

    The person or persons involved in depriving this man of his rights need(s) to be purged from the system and an example made of them.

    Perhaps another monetary solution worth consideration is to fire any offending public servant(s) with a loss of pension rights.

    Something like this cannot be allowed to happen.

    Like the Dean and many others I also wondered why “…Agard himself never raised any query as to his situation during all this time”…or maybe he did and was simply ignored!

    We euphemistically pass off this system as old or inefficient when in fact we KNOW that we are talking about men and woman who go to work daily after hugging a spouse or child or maybe greeting a neighbour or doing a task for an aunt or friend…or arguing, or scolding or being scolded…in sum, living life with all emotions … that these our fellow citizens simply saw Mr Agard as less than deserving humane compassion!

    Until one man said -to paraphrase a recent popular retort – No, not AGAIN today!

    To Dean Jeff, I am surprised by your remark that “… although I do concede that I am ignorant of whether any facility existed for him to do so”

    You know our legal operational system much better than I ever could but don’t they have various people affiliated with “human rights care” groups who visit the prisoners (by request, I presume) and advocate for individuals? Surely Mr Agard could request such a visitor or ask some family member to do so on his behalf…at minimum, not so!

    Seems to me that the system may have attempted (ridiculously so) to simply hide and forget Mr Agard…I cannot perceive that all along the process line of his life in jail that NO ONE save one corrections officer who finally said ‘my career be damned’ was ignorant of this man’s plight. That makes absolutely no sense to me.

    As the Blogmaster has noted in these pages for over 10 plus years … the people in our legal system deliberately maintain this broken process…he quoted now deceased Sir Frederick ‘Sleepy Smith back in 2010 on the failings and I’m sure he could have quoted Sir Fred during his heyday decades previously as AG on the failing then too.

    So Dean Jeff, when you say ….“The Attorney General is right. The entire affair is “totally inexcusable”. And it is owed to a failure or a congeries of failures of the entire system” and added that it “beggars belief; that no heads have rolled” I smile …

    We have to be careful that the head that rolls is not that of the compassionate prison officer…because surely which official will quietly take the fall for this …well unless they get a nice posting somewhere else!

    Mr Blogmaster, let’s call a spade a spade and BS just that: BS.

    There are about 900 guests of the state at Dodds It is one campus for adult males…they are those convicted and those on remand. The latter is some percentage of the total…

    There are about the same number of students at HC, or maybe more… they are some in lower school and some in grey and white of upper school.

    In 1970s or so when a group of your bloggers were guests at that institution (HC, that is) and there were no computer databases as they are today do you believe that the administrators couldn’t keep proper track of their population?

    Do you believe that the folks at Glendairy were unable to do the same with their “stone age system” of log books and paper files?

    Are we REALLY thus debating that this is a problem of equipment/darptabases! BS BALDERDASH!

  • We are indeed grateful to have the legal luminary, Jefferson Cumberbatch, on our side of this issue. For there could only be one side, despite the vagaries of law.

    But we have to go deeper. And instead of seeing this as the obvious tort it has been we must now properly locate it within the a broader narrative of the penal system.

    Our master narrative has long been that the prison industrial system is a representation of a modern day slave system.

    Within that system there are not only the violations to which Cumberbatch so eloquently adumbrated but much more, much more grievous violations. Violations equal to those the slave system that it is.

    We have citizens who are made to work, against their will, for a pittance with the unusual large surplus created by their labour being diverted elsewhere. If this is not a modern slave economy, then tell us what is. Indeed, during the Transatlantic Slave Trade returns as high as 1700% were quite normal. The convergence of capitalism and slavery at Dodds may very well be equally that benchmark. It is regrettable that we currently have a PM with a cold streak, a woman who ‘violently’ built this prison and has always seemed committed to the incarceration of people, as norm.

    In addition:

    We have many and sustained denials of right to undergarments, personal care items, adequate medical attention etc

    We have a continuing dehumanizing of inmates and the promotion of a prison culture of unlawful sexual activity and the sex trade inside.

    The incarceration system promotes alternative market for drugs and other items of tradeable value pipelined into the prison, and as controlled by the jailers.

    Dodds serves as an incubator for the rising culture of violence we are witnessing in the murder statistics at the level of the masses. And at the other end, the more brutal white collar crimes we all are being subjected to by elite formations.

    And we could go on and on.

    Given these circumstances, it should become clear to the independent observer that the introduction of prison systems into the human family has been and will continue to be a mistake.

    That this modern slave system where citizens are warehoused in slave ship-like conditions are not dissimilar to those from which it sprang.

    What this all means on a more profound level is this: the WHO will change all the official writing or regulations regarding Marijuana – that includes the removal of whole-plant marijuana and cannabis resins from the “extremely restrictive” list of substances logged under the heading Schedule IV in their official database. All THC-contaminated substances or isomers as they’re called in the scientific community will also switch over to a less restrictive category – to match the U.S. Government’s Schedule I categorization.

    Is this not a conundrum, re “The system isn’t broke, the people are!!”.

    1.The people make the system thus there are at one with it… when it’s broken so are they and when it works then so are they working…

    2.But yet the system and the people are separate… just as the state as statehood is separate from the state of citizens… ergo: if the people determine that it is systematically correct to say The system isn’t BROKEN.. but many prefer a process which accepts The system isn’t broke…, then is that not a NEW working system rather than a broken old one! 🤣😎

    Tong served as president of Kiribati, a country made up of 32 atolls, from 2003 to 2016. Over that time, he watched as erosion damaged food crops, seawater flooded freshwater ponds and residents were forced to retreat.

    He has become outspoken in describing the “existential threat from climate change” his country faces.

    “In the near future, communities may have to relocate,” he said. “When it hits you directly, it’s very difficult for you to deny it.”

    Tong has good reason to be worried. As human activities continue to alter the environment, islands are increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of the planet’s changing climate.

    In October 2018, Hurricane Walaka washed away a remote, 11-acre Hawaiian island as the storm barreled through the Pacific Ocean. Several months before that, Russian scientists reported that a small Arctic island had disappeared, saying that only vast, open water remained at the site. And near the end of 2018, a local newspaper reported that an uninhabited islet off the coast of Japan could no longer be found, presumably because it had sunk beneath the water’s surface.

    In these recent examples, the islands were small and uninhabited, but scientists say the fate of these tiny pieces of land could be a harbinger of what’s to come.

    “With some of these small islands, maybe it’s no big deal to the average person because they’re uninhabited, but you’re going to see these same processes happen on larger islands and populated ones,” said Curt Storlazzi, a geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in Santa Cruz, California.

    Storlazzi has conducted research on coastal erosion in the tropics. He says that one way rising sea levels can redesign coastlines is by generating bigger waves, adding layers of sediment in some places while causing erosion and flooding in other areas.

    “If sea levels continue to rise as projected,” Storlazzi said, “there’s going to be even greater change.”

    Singapore abolishes school exam rankings, says learning is not competition

    Whether a child finishes first or last will no longer be indicated in primary and secondary school report books from next year in Singapore, – a move which Education Minister Ong Ye Kung hopes will show students that “learning is not a competition”.

    Report books will not just stop showing a student’s position in relation to class or cohort. The information to be dropped includes:

    Class and level mean
    Minimum and maximum marks
    Underlining and/or colouring of failing marks
    Pass/fail for end-of-year result
    Mean subject grades
    Overall total marks
    L1R5 (English plus five relevant subjects), L1R4 , EMB3 (English, maths, best three subjects) and EMB1 for lower secondary levels
    The Ministry of Education (MOE) said on Friday (Sept 28) that the change is to allow each student to focus on his or her learning progress and discourage them from being overly concerned about comparisons.

    From next year all examinations for Primary 1 and 2 pupils will also be removed, and whatever forms of assessment they have will not count towards an overall grade.

    The MOE said that teachers will continue to gather information about pupils’ learning through discussions, homework and quizzes. Schools will use other ways like “qualitative descriptors”, in place of marks and grades, to evaluate pupils’ progress at these two levels.

    For older students in primary schools and secondary schools, marks for each subject will be rounded off and presented as a whole number, without decimal points – to reduce the focus on academic scores. Parents will continue to receive information about their child’s progress in school during parent-teacher meetings.

    In an address to some 1,700 school leaders earlier this week, Mr Ong said: “I know that ‘coming in first or second’, in class or level, has traditionally been a proud recognition of a student’s achievement. But removing these indicators is for a good reason, so that the child understands from young that learning is not a competition, but a self-discipline they need to master for life.

    “Notwithstanding, the report book should still contain some form of yardstick and information to allow students to judge their relative performance, and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses.”

    We hear that in the US news today the presstitutes of all stripes are busily talking about Trump’s ‘freeing’ of 1000 people who, 92% of whom are Black, who in some cases, spent decades in jail/prison, in a crass political maneuver to chip away about 10 percent of the African-American vote.

    The bigger picture that those in media will never approach is the underlying history of genocidal treatment of the Afrikan-American people by all stripes of the political system, regardless of persuasion or identity, as they see it.

    The so-called ‘progressives’ have had no interest in the iniquitous actions of Bill & Hillary Clinton who continued to pass laws to incarcerate Black people in droves, as recently as the 19990’s.

    Nor bulling Barak Obama who pretended to care but did nothing about the inordinate numbers of Black people in America’s dungeons. Maybe he presumed that everybody was like him and that Black people in jail were glad to be digging up in shite, like he is known to.

    Now we have this Jared Kushner being deified with a hagiography which only media whores on Fox News, CNN and MSNBC are capable of.

    Rooted in our history with this brutal and ruthless empire, which has done the opposite of what its faux history is suppose to be about. How else can such a history produce a Donald Trump or Kushner. Gerald Horne, the preeminent American scholar has told us that the whole historical narrative has to be re-written, to account for the production of a Trump. And he’s quite right!

    The big picture is that all the currents within the American establishment, in every environment, continue to use a defenseless Black population to serve their interests.

    Black people represent up to 70% of people in prison, largely because of unjust laws targeting them by a White occupation police force. So instead of dealing with the racist causation, trinkets of ‘just us’ can be dispense from this racist Trump administration.

    We will expect the Trumpeteers here to see something good about their patron-saint’s actions.

It would have been better to say that he was going to re-examine his position in light of strong representation from women and come to a conclusion by the end of the campaign.
