5 Gay Men Were Trapped And Barricaded By An Angry MOB: Homophobia In Jamaica (VIDEO)

Anti-gay mobsters armed with bats
The fear of homosexuality and perceived contagiousness as well as communicability resulted in five (5) homosexual men being trapped and barricaded by an angry anti-gay lynch mob at their home.  Community members were deeply troubled by their belief that these gay men are going to spread their homosexuality to vulnerable young boys within the community.

According to CVM TV NEWSWATCH on August 22, 2013 “men said to be homosexuals had to be rescued by a strong attachment of police. The men were marooned in a house after earning the fury of residents. The sleepy community of green gully Manchester was angrily awakens on Thursdays after the actions of an alleged homosexual man. Residence became riled up when the man allegedly made statements which made them gravely concerned. The residence would have none of it. As the story spread like wild fire throughout the community, the residents annoyance spilled over, the five (5) men and a vehicle belonging to them were barricaded.  The five (5) men were rescued and escorted out of the community by police.”

One of the angry residents stated, “we have young youth growing up, and what they (gays) want to do is take them and put them in a different direction. When we can bear the hunger and don't stoop to certain level, the youth really cannot do that. That is what really started all of this.”

One shall question the rationale behind the residents fear; and possibly conclude if their fears are plausible. In what way did the alleged homosexuals earn the mob’s fury?  What were the alleged action and statements made by the accused homosexual man? These critical questions remain unanswered. Yet still, the actions taken by the mob were justified in their own regards.  

The fear, ignorance and misconceptions of homosexuality are the primary causes of rampant anti-gay violence and pervasive intolerance towards gays living in Jamaica. The church sows and nourishes this seed of hatred within our society. Clearly, to impede the cycle of hate and misconception of homosexuals in Jamaica, education and sensitization outreaches are necessary and imperative. Hence the role of the church and family are critical in the fight for tolerance and equality.

Finally, ignorance breeds fear and violence. Relying on the police to save every gay and lesbian Jamaican trapped, surrounded and attacked by a lynch mob across Jamaica is inconceivable, unpredictable and risky. Imagine the outcome if no police officers were in reached to save homosexuals from the deadly force of Jamaica’s anti-gay lynch mobs? “Many more Dwayne Jones (Gully Queen),” is that our answer? Something needs to be done immediately to stem anti-gay attacks and vigilantism in Jamaica. The time is NOW!

    2. I'm so perturbed by our Jamaican brothers and sisters,fighting against gays,we should focus on child molesters,ppl who rape murder,criminal elements,I wonder at times,y we Jamaican ppl has d time to prosecute gay ppl,living the life that been love should not b a burden on ppl how to live or not,we tends to b interested in things that aren't.important.that's d reason y our countries isn't moving forward.what is the prime minister saying on violence against,gays,aren't they citizens of Jamaican society as well,most gays made wonderful contribution to our societies,where is the rights,where is the love,god is love,he's not of violence.we tends to use the bible as an excuse.we should also realise that mankind was the one who create the bible,god is love he's also a god of compassion peace unity.

  6. These incidents are starting to happen too much and too often. I truly share Dwayne's last remarks, "something needs to be done immediately". I live each day of my life wondering when my time will come.

  7. there were similar attitudes here in england in the 50s and 60s but no lynch mobs. The sense of the need for order and the rule of law meant that mob rule was opposed by authority. people dont change their attitudes much. things change as the older ones die and the young take over. my worry for jamaica is that the young are influenced by homophobic music and maybe not much prospect for improvement soon

  8. Education is the key. These people are ignorant and therefore very dangerous.

  9. These groups of thugs who feel that they have the right to physically harm gays because they do not understand or approve of their lifestyle, must be prosecuted. Government leaders must take a stand and let the thugs know that they WILL be brought to justice. ALL Jamaicans have a right to live freely in Jamaica. If those in positions of authority take a stand Jamaica will be a better place for everyone.

  10. Jamaica has a strong cultural homophobia. A friend and I went to an expensive restaurant. He was considerably younger than me, but we were not doing anything to attract attention to ourselves. The waiters clearly did not want to serve us, and we had top ask about three times for everything before they would bring it. If you are gay, don't go to Jamaica or The Bahamas. One gay Englishman in a hotel had his throat slit in his hotel room because he was gay.

    Education may be the key, but there are differing chances that education will make much difference, depending on the country. We have come a long, long ways in the United States. But the hatred of gays is so strong in Jamaica that it would take an enormous effort and a number of generations to tone it down.

  11. i find it interesting when he says basically that as adults they are able to resist the hunger for such these. That puts forward to question that the normal adult man has hunger for such things he is just better suited to resist a man than a someone younger than him who will succumb to this so called hungry. also having a child grow up around gay individual does not mean the child will be gay unless he desires such things its not something you grow up seeing and adopt that is just grass root ignorance. But alas maybe there is hope for the society, this neighborhood man sounds open to the idea of homosexual legality which is a good step forward in the fight for equal rights

    1. The person actually infers to the level of poverty and the inability of the young to resist spoils from those who are gay, in exchange for services. That's what I think it means.

  12. It is time that the gay community fights back. People must understand that being gay is not the same as being a child molester. We are just gays!

  13. "The fear, ignorance and misconceptions of homosexuality are the primary causes of rampant anti-gay violence and pervasive intolerance towards gays living in Jamaica.

    I agree that there is indeed fear, ignorance and misconceptions of homosexuality - largely because though many of us don't understand it, we know it is unnatural. The propaganda from the gay community that the church sows and nourishes the seed of hatred is untrue. The church - many anyway - teach that homosexuality is wrong because it is biblically stated that it is. There are many homosexuals that have received prayer and deliverance in church and have resumed healthy and natural lives. This is not highlighted by the gay community which thrives itself on 'bashing' and labeling as 'homophobic' persons that dare to say their behaviour is wrong. I don't agree that homosexuals should be beaten and killed. That too is wrong but I do believe that both the gay community and church communities have opposing opinions on what God requires for men and women and that is the true issue. If all men and women were gay life would stop as we know it - still I am extremely grateful that many homosexuals are recognising through conviction that they have been deceived and are being delivered. Google it!

  16. The church does not create the word of God. Why should the beliefs and rights of every citizen not be upheld. So I do not believe that man to man or woman to woman is natural. And yes the bible that has been around long before us speaks against it....Should I follow man and forget God? No I stand for my belief in God. I will never harm or incite violence against a gay but I will never turn my back on God even if persecuted by a group of men and women who do not wish there to be any other opinion or voice other than their own. Gays violently kill each other and it is known. Respect is requested when the experience that the average Jamaican has is VERY negative. Not all gays are affluent and established, the people on the street encounter a different set that are very destructive and abusive in the way they behave with others. The fact that many move in groups they behave very badly! So educate the gays who paint a very bad picture of a gay Jamaican. Three sides to every story.....seek truth not hearsay or fabricated stories to fuel disdain for Jamaicans that are not gay and do not share the opinion that the bible should be ignored.
