The Natalie Crichlow Video

This video shared widely on social media raises doubt in the minds of some that the truth surrounding the death of 44 year old Natalie Crichlow is being suppressed by the authorities. The Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith confirmed in a press release no accelerant was detected from the post mortem process and  likely cause of death was as a result of a gas cylinder which exploded.

Further comment is therefore required from the police to clarify the matter.

  • There you go backtracking. Your statements are there for others to critique. Are you so arrogant to admit if wrong?

    The blogmaster is not an apologist for a boy or girl. What we will not do though is follow hair-brain conspiracies by some who want to promote all negative about the island.

    Up to last week the gofund established by the relatives had raised more than enough money to pay for the return of the body. The blogmaster is willing t bet the government as a gesture of goodwill will pay for the return of the body, if they don’t many will be disappointed given the circumstances.

    The blogmaster’s comment about the matter are there to reread. The CoP has some work to do to address weaknesses in the communication so far. This does not translate to cover-up.

    I do not think you are that clever, if not I would have accused you of deliberately misleading people. Where and on what am I backtracking? Elaborate for the readers? Is it that the British diplomatic mission s called a high commission, this is an elementary fact.
    Otherwise all the other waffle has had nothing to do with me, unless you want to pin it on me. Re-read the blog. What am I wrong about. Tell me and I would apologise.
    You are an apologist because you believe, and want the blog to believe, that the statement by the commissioner of police is the truth and the whole truth.
    I am more sceptical that is why I posed a number of questions that relatives and friends of the dead lady, and the local press should pursue – and anyone interested in social justice. Where I come from that is called journalism.
    In the meantime, plse show the blog where I have been backtracking.

    Thanks. There is a composite of behaviours which I call the Bajan Condition. Here are some: if someone poses an uncomfortable question you go on the attack; if they insist, you become foul-mouthed and abusive.
    Or, if they are discussing ideas and you find yourself in a corner you talk about your qualifications, that you have a PhD or are a lawyer; it is intellectual intimidation, meant to close down a discussion. Another one is to start an argument then walk away when things are not going your way.
    These are old Bajan discursive tricks, the old rum shop. You may recognise them as ‘shoo, man’; ‘you may have the last word’; ‘don’t mind he, I know he’. There are lots of them. There are all the refuge of the dishonest and fraudulent. Or, you make an accusation without details: like backtracking.

  • We have to bear in mind that the lady’s children have to basically do this on their own, not easy while sick, vulnerable and trying to grieve. Don’t think the office or whomever handles such will continue to be uncooperative because everything is now in the spotlight, so some more time will be needed to see what process they had to endure.

    For those not aware a placard protest was mounted in front the Barbados consulate in UK last week in regard to this issue, photos were on FB.

    I have had a young relative die suddenly, and tragically. if you live long enough, the same may happen in your family. At that time you also will grieve, you may be vulnerable. But it did not in my case, and will not in your case relieve you of the responsibility of arranging the last rites for your beloved.

    I don’t know where the got the idea that lady’s children are sick. I trust not from the same place where you found the misinformation that the Barbados officials had tried to cremate the lady’s body without her family’s consent.

  • When I was young de ole man was not a child of privilege so clothes were a pass me down commodity

    Education was by proxy and exposure to those who knew therefore knowledge of the contents of a book came purely by exposure to the owners of the books.

    Third Party Contact to the Content

    And one such novel was To Kill a Mocking Bird

    De ole man is not at all literate nor can I tell wunna bout Atticus Finch or Scout, Dill and Jem but the name of the book elicited a feeling of similarity of how one, being under the influence of our own characteristics, can “kill” a subject of such value MUCH LIKE THE INNOCENT RAPE ACCUSED TOM ROBINSON was shot and killed while escaping the jailhouse after being sentenced.

    “…Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy.

    They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us.

    That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird…”

    De ole man is much wiser nowadays than in “times aforetimes”.

    One “sees” things long time before they happen but one prays that, with time, some enlightenment comes to the parties involved “so that they rise to the greater good”

    When that DOES NOT HAPPEN, like a sniper scope, one recalibrated one’s weapon, and you shoot again.

    We, not being Christ, must have a spirit of charity, to overlook much AND TRY, CONTRARY TO OUR CARNAL NATURE, TO FORGIVE MORE.

    The precision of topics like these DEMAND THAT ONE IS FOCUSED and that one does not lose sight of THE MOCKING BIRDS On our landscape of intervention.

    Natalie Critchlow is one of society’s most vulnerable WHO, NO LONGER HAVING A MOUTH TO SPEAK, needs an Atticus Finch to speak out for her.

    And when the crowds come to lynch the Tom Robinsons of our society, or when the Bob Ewell’s come to torment the poor and defenceless widows or when they come to beat the Jem and Scouts among the populace, then, like the Atticus ‘ s and Boo Radleys WE NEED TO STAND UP AND DO THE RIGHT THING.

    Few will understand the importance of Atticus Finch giving accurate information for Tom even though Tom is found guilty at the trial.

    Fewer still will understand that even in the face of such guilty verdict, Finch vows to seek a further trial for Tom.

    But what many understand is how noble the title of “ni**er-lover” is when you review Finch’s actions TO DO THE RIGHT THING in this ever repeating story of life at 2019.

    Decomposed bodies of two women found in Christ Church

    The decomposed bodies believed to be those of an elderly woman and her daughter, in her 50s, were discovered in Christ Church on Saturday, police say.

    Investigators say that around 1:30 p.m., police accompanied a concerned family member, who was visiting from the UK, to a residence in Regency Park, where they found the bodies.

    Police are at the scene and investigations are continuing.

    Hal, your resilience in prosecuting this matter ALONE, is commendable!

    De ole man will provide my customary “other perspective” for your consideration.

    I copied this internet article to make my point about this purported Murder Case.

    “…Police’s role in criminal cases is investigation of the offence.

    The investigation includes
    1.seizure of articles/documents,
    2.questioning witnesses and
    3.recording their testimony,
    4.arrest of the accused (if necessary),
    5.protecting the Complainant etc…”

    The issue with this high profile suspected murder IS NOT SO MUCH HOW THE ROYAL BAYGON POLICE FORCE did their work, it is how the information related to the “non essential information ” has been mismanaged

    What do de ole man mean by non essential information?

    We the public dont need to know about the accelerant found in Natalie Critchlow’s clothing.

    That is NOT OUR PORTFOLIO!

    However, in these circumstances where such controversy obtains one would thing that belligerence IS NOT THE MODUS OPERANDUM to be adopted by the powers that be

    The fact is that there is no one who is responsible for issuing a public statement when a black woman from the UK dies in suspect circumstances

    HAD THIS WOMAN BEEN WHITE de ole man respectfully puts it to you Hal that THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A SPEED TO BOTH IDENTIFY A SPOKESPERSON as well as AN ONGOING CHAIN OF INFORMATION DISSEMINATION throughout the entire process.

    This is a “high profile case” with some disturbing images, evidence and mismanagement.

    By now, there should have been a comprehensive review and denouement that served to dispel ALL THE CONCERNS OF A PUBLIC THAT IS SCARED SHITLESS BY CLOSE TO 50 MURDERS!

    But then again, Barbados is a BANANA REPUBLIC AND ALL THESE THINGS WE ARE CANVASSING FOR will be A Bridge Too Far

    I have been accused of criticising the local media by David BU. This is far from true. Any intervention on the quality of local journalism on my part is simply, with the best of intentions, with a view to assist in improvement.
    Let me talk about my trade: the most important tool in a news editor’s armoury is a diary. It is his/her map as to what is taking place, what we call a diary event.
    Barbadian news editors do not seem to have diaries, and if they do, they do not use them effectively. On numerous occasions they publish the beginning of stories but fail to follow through. The case of Natalie Crichlow is just one of the most important.
    Occasionally I refer to others: PC Gittens, who shot his neighbour; the woman who claimed she was kidnapped and taken to an ATM; the man who was remanded for ten years; the prison officer facing charges; I can go on. There are numerous political examples.
    It appears as if they think their readers should no longer have an interest in the outcomes of those cases.

  • What is not news is that the quality of local journalism is poor. They print one side of a story. They do not attempt to verify what sources say. They quote one source and care not for the source’s credibility. They do not follow up on stories. There is very little investigation.

    That’s why I read the newspapers at the library or online.

    And as for the broadcast media – CBC News Night – pure piffle. I no longer watch.
