According to a report by the Gleaner,Mario Deane of Rosemount in Montego Bay was unconscious for three days, battling for his life at the Cornwall Regional Hospital after suffering from serious head injuries he received at the Barnett Street Police Station in Montego Bay just hours after he was arrested for a ganja spliff on Sunday morning.

Marcia Frazer, the mother of the young man told The Gleaner yesterday that doctors at the Cornwall Regional Hospital said Deane suffered multiple brain injuries.

  

Mario Deane arrested for ganja spliff Mobay killed in police stationUp to the time of his death, he never regained consciousness.

“He had a terrible chop over his left eye, one on the top of his head, mark on his left arm, bruise under his chin. Face was swollen, eyes swollen that you couldn’t see his eyelash. His head has grown twice the size it was before he was beaten,” said Frazer.

According to the report, police officers told family members of the young man that he was beaten by cellmates but gave doctors a different story telling them he fell off a bunk bed.

Sergeant Peter Salkey, the liaison officer for the police’s Constabulary Communications Unit in St James, was contacted and stated “We are aware of the incident and there is an ongoing investigation by both the CIB and INDECOM.”

He is my next door neighbor, and I am telling you, he doesn’t trouble people, whenever I see him he is always walking alone. He doesn’t it on the road and smoke or beg. He works hard for his money. I understand that if you are on your way to work, and my any chance police stopped you and find a ganja spliff, sure, charge me. It’s not legal (no more than $100)… BUT!!!!!

I doubt this was done by inmates. A thorough investigation MUST be done and all involved must be brought to justice. #SAD
