EAST END, Tortola, VI- With police already under fire from the public for their recent tasing of a young man who went to get drinking water during curfew hours in East End and also a homeless man in Road Town, Tortola in April, another video has surfaced showing a young man being tased while in the vicinity of the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge today, May 17, 2020.

According to reports reaching our newsroom, the young man tased was with a group of persons returning to Tortola from the Long Bay Beach on Beef Island around 1:00 pm when they were pulled over by police just after crossing the bridge.

Reports also indicate that the same police patrol was on the beach and may have been observing the group of persons, who were packed up in a small vehicle on their return from the beach.

Tasing incident

Our newsroom was also told that police then attempted a search of one of the young men when they were met with resistance.

In the video police appear to be trying to arrest the young man, amidst a vocal group of persons; however, the man resisted by either walking away and even re-entering the vehicle he was in. At one stage one of the officers attempted to restrain the man but was pushed away and almost tumbled to the ground.

The young man was then tased from behind and collapsed to the ground where he was then handcuffed and taken away.

United Kingdom national and Commissioner of Police Mr Michael B. Matthews, who has repeatedly defended the actions of his officers, had not responded to our request for a comment on the incident at the time of publication.

More details to follow.

    Society need to respect and obey orders from the police. If they feel that during such time their rights were violated they have a right to redress. Base on this video footage I observed that the police action was justifiable.

        @ Yes... They are NOT dealing with a bunch unruly "Animals", but a bunch of unruly "People". We hated the En-slavers. They treated us less than their dogs and other animals. Get rid of words, like Nigger, Nappy Heads, Monkeys, etc, because they love to laugh and see us using their words to belittle ourselves more. Don't you see how angry they got when they said no dogs are allowed on the beaches? They chose their dogs over us, who needed to heal in the sea, sun and sand after being locked down for so long. We would be better and stronger if we just take the time to think and break mental slavery that some of us suffer from. These unruly People, need to learn respect for themselves as well as the police.

      You sound dumb. Last time I checked The Virgin Islands werea group of islands. Some of them are inhabited by people. The people of the Virgin Islands are Island people. All of the Caribbean islands is one. Just like when they captured us from Africa and spread us all over into captivity, the hatred against our own people they created is still alive in you. What makes VI people not Island people? US dollar? UK? I'm from here and I need my people to stop thinking they are not Island people and thinking they can ill treat nationals of the islands. VI people sound so dumb and ignorant. And some of them want to go independent. Go independent lose US money real quick. Nothing to export. Nothing to manufacture. As tourism is not in swing, please think about something that can produce money and jobs instead of this stupid talk. Half of you ain't worth the sperm and egg that made you. Lord I done

        In essence we have no natural resources. ...the other islands have gold silver oil, fertile soill but they are poorer than dirt and all because of their lack of human character. Noooo we are not one set of people. We are not in another mans country,up de islujn,squeezing and begging for job while our faces are allover the worlds communications broadcasting bad behaviour every week,in an effort to chase away that country' s economy. Demons are real. Repeat. Demons are real.We are not all the same and cannot be one. We need to curse and dismiss what is cursed and despicable. The VI is a blessed place and a curse will continue on those who continue to defile and villifyy the VI. Nothing good will come from It has always been that way. Our resource is our Character, Not only has it served us but has done the same for the up de islun. May God continuue to Bless us and cast out the demonic and the demons which continues ito inhabit the souls and minds of those to whom we have given a life.

    We will not encourage wrong!!! I don't know the background, but based solely on the video the young man resisted arrest and assaulted the police officer. That's two offenses right there!! From what I saw it appears that the officer's actions were justified, and he used reasonable force in the circumstances. Did anyone else notice that other than the officers no one else was wearing a mask? I'm not even going to comment about the indecent language.

    People are missing the point. This is not about the officer being pushed, which was after the fact though we are not condoning it.

    That officer was set on tasing that fellow from get-go, which is likely why he was in the car to avoid being tased ...but all people seeing is an assault on an officer and not provocation and willfull misuse of a weapon by an officer.

    Police should be held accountable when they act in an abusive or unprofessional way. Clearly, this is not what happened here. We do not know what occurred before the camera started to roll in this incident but according to this news site, we could assume that the Police incepted a small vehicle that was packed with a group of persons. Since we did not hear from them [the Police] one could assume that this was the cause of the stop. The subject, in this case, was seen entering and exiting a small vehicle. It appeared that the Police were attempting to take him into custody. At one point while standing outside the vehicle, the subject assaulted a Police Officer almost knocking him to the ground. It was at that point he was tased. At no other stage during the video, it was shown the Police was in any other Physical contact with the now suspect. Hopefully, this video will be played in a Court of law. It was sensationalized by the screaming young woman and this news site. I was rather embarrassed that this editor attempted to reach the Commissioner of Police for a comment in this matter. Furthermore, it is obvious that professionally he should not make a public response to the incident since he may not have viewed the video, received a report from his Officers nad the matter has to be investigated.

    First off the story is wrong. The police didnt stop the jeep it was already park up. Plus with the 15 that was on the bridge out of 10 was family that live in the same yard. Next thing people saying their didnt had on mask why where a mask coming from the beach in open air being round people you already live with. Out of all the 15 person why pick on just one. It was 3 officers and 1 man why not try hold him down. I saw the video and you and clearly see a fire was shown he open the door even before their can say you are. All when he run from one side to the next you can see a next shot fire now if some one else was shot with that. Everyone saw when he push yes that wrong but to tase WHY.

    I see why young people in this place are so lawless. The parents and adults who are enabling them. The police officer did nothing wrong. In fact, the officer was assaulted which justified the use of a taser. The other persons in the video were totally hysterical and fueled this situation. When they die on scooters and die by gun and senseless violence, the enablers cry their crocodile tears. Do better by your children. Teach them obedience.

    Good job RVIPF. I’ve never seen you all working this hard before. However, I would like to suggest some tactical training. That was a very sloppy arrest..

    Did u see how the "youth" shove the police officer??
    Stop behaving like they are some little harmless innocent children. They are big hard back man and woman that know right from wrong. They are just darn disrespectful.
    I have to deal with them in the school system and it's the same way they behave - rude and disrespectful. You mustn't correct them because they have a right to do whatever they feel like doing.
    I will keep saying this: If u don't give the schools the authority to fix these indisciplined children, this is what the society is going to become - lawless.

    Closing back the beaches is not the answer or the solution, reopening up will not be perfect but we will have to fix and adjust as we go along,, This issue clearly highlights a problem that needs fixing and it is going to get fix. This will not happen again..The beaches are going to be better managed..

      first the police use to put you in choke holds. now the police full speed using tasers; down the road the police will use guns: when there are certain incidents they must be a board that is independent of the police department to find the facts: can some on here ask the commissioner whatever happened to the body cameras the members of the royal virgin islands police force must be wearing while on duty...set of crookedness

    Oh God have murcy on our young people. Weeping weeping some how we have gone wrong as a people, as a territory, as parents as churches as a society. Would to God we would go back to basic the rod of correction let it help to drive out the foolishness that's is bound up in some of our younger. Some pass that stage but if we pay attention to the younger ones we can save many to come.

      Faded her for what did she do something.

      This about the young man why you jumping on what she doing and not doing. How are you so sure she ain't taking care of her kids. Just mind your own business and keep to what the story about. And yes if you want to know this is one of her sister.

      No one is perfect only God can judge us.

    I passed the Beef Island Bridge yesterday and I am certain about 50 or more persons were there on the bridge, no spacing no mask no regard for social distancing. The hurtful thing a lot of you on the police case when some of you had your young primary school children in that crowd exposing them to the risk of infection to COVID 19. I was there and the police warned that young man too many times for his behavior and the police was correct to disperse the crowd.
    I support the police on this time

      What 50 people can you count. So on the beach where everybody was under each other was any different. On the beach had more people hug up drinking and playing that was on the bridge you could say it was close to 20 person tops. Warned him for his mouth if their was warning him as you said why wait for him to reach into the car to come and get him tell me that. Like you ain't see the part where them walk up to the car to get him. You support the police cause you is one sound like one.

    Only Tola! I could tell you. First of all they only started recording when they felt it would be in their favor. Secondly, why in the world they didn’t arrest/charge that young lady for her disrespectful behavior. OMG who does she belong to??? Loud! Loud! Loud! It was so annoying. She’s lucky they didn’t tase her as well. I’m so tired of seeing our youths behave in this manner (especially the girls). Thirdly, which part of the world do you see people chucking off an officer and don’t get some lead up in them? Only Tola. He’s lucky he only got tased and he’s alive to have chat and strength for another day. Sometimes it’s the way we behave and handle ourselves is what makes things worse. I know that officers can over do in situations at times, but if we act like this all we do is make things bad for ourselves.

    Why tase him if his back is turned? They could've subdued him, other than trying to look tough in a badge.
    Send the cowards to another country to try their stunts.
