UPDATE: $15,000 bail for Tino Victor

Tino Victor was granted bail in the sum of $15,000 when he appeared in a Roseau court on Friday.

Victor, who has been relieved of his duty as a special constable, was recently arrested and charged for possession of a firearm and ammunition without a valid license.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge.

His father, Augustus Victor, stood as surety.

As condition of bail he is to report to the Portsmouth Police Station every Monday between 7 am and 7 pm.

The matter is set for November 22 in Portsmouth.

Victor is being represented by attorney Wayne Norde.

The matter surfaced on September 4 when Glanvillia resident Davan Paul was hauled before the court for possession of a firearm.

The court was told that the police found a 12-gauge shot gun in the trunk of Paul’s car.

Paul subsequently told officers that the gun belonged to a policeman called ‘Tino.’

Paul’s attorney, Zena Dyer, told the court that “Tino” admitted to the other police officers to owning the firearm and that he had not returned to take the gun from Paul because he was in an accident.

Paul was eventually fined $6,000 after he pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm.

    He was not an enlisted Officer. He was appointed as a constable (contracted police). In some places they are called “Fake Police” or “Auxilliary Officers”. He is fund of hunting, and I suspect this was his hunting rifle. My question is why was it not licened? I also think he blundered by loaning that firearm to the man who was caught with it. That was not intelligent thinking for an Officer aspiring to become.

    I agree totally, If it was the poor man on the street the woukld have sent him to stockfarm headfirst. Allu Dominicans too mauderer…poor tino my foot, he was a good officer my big toe, if he was so good he would not have given another man his gun. Be sensible Dominicans what good for he gooose good for the gander if it was another man allu would say send him up. So I totally agree the fine should even be higher…for a man of the law he ought to show example…..by the way I went to school with him he doubled 6 times how did he even manage to be constable….whoosh food for though….. oonly in Dominica..only here I say

      People must not be rude to the police. They must be obedient and respectful to the police. Some people want to be wrong and strong on it. Ask yourself. Would the police pull out his gun on the man for no reason?
      I reside in a country where many West Indians of all, mostly men and young ones at that have been in trouble with the Law in many ways. Never have I been in trouble with the Law. On the contrary, I respect all police. Whenever I see them I smile to them and greet them and they do likewise. If they are near me I talk to them. This is how to live, by the Law and to be respectful of the police and other people. In so doing, you will never get into trouble with them and with others. Then, if you innocently of all find yourself in such trouble, simply walk away. As you do, pray to God to protect you from harm.
      There is something good and wonderful about being a peaceful person, upholding the peace, living at peace with others and generating it to others. What goes around comes around. Peace perfect peace.

    the man was wrong to be giving the man his gun, but you have to take in consideration that he was actually in an accident recently which could have been a reason the guy still had the gun, how you can fire the man and charge him for having an a shot gun, all police have those type of guns, is the poor man child that will always suffer, why is one set they arresting….. if they arresting tino for that why they not arresting all that doing that.. it have a saying for dominicans does never say rubbish smelling unless it in their backyard..once it not in theirs or it in someone else’s own they cannot be bothered…. case in point… FAIRNESS TO ALL. THAT CHARGE WAS HARSH

    The rule of law, also called supremacy of law, means that the law is above everyone and it applies to everyone. Whether governor or governed, rulers or ruled, no one is above the law, no one is exempted from the law, and no one can grant exemption to the application of the law.
    In the case involving the Corporal which was in the similar situation as this I hope he is fired from the force and arrested also. Re: Ashton Telemaque of Wesley- Telemacque was arrested at the Wood Bridge Bay Port on Friday after one sub-machine gun, 24 rounds of 9mm ammunition, four 12-gauge rounds of shot-gun ammunition and one round of .45 caliber ammunition were allegedly found in the vehicle he was driving. ALL OF WHICH BELONGS TO A POLICE OFFICER!!! ….A man was who was arrested on Friday when a sub-machine gun and ammunition were discovered in the vehicle he was driving, has been charged with possession of a prohibited firearm. .”If it is prohibited it cannot be licenced.

    I have said it before; these are the issues that Charles Saverin must speak as they are directly related to national security. It reasonable to conclude that there is a wild west type gun ownership and distribution right within the police force. The rookie police officer who was dismissed by Carrette was only doing what he probably thought was routine within the police force. There were other cases swept under the rug at the headquarters- that is for sure. Since the introduction of the stock from Venezuela guns went wild. The gun of the minister’s father that was stored in the government armory was used in a crime. How did that gun got on the streets?

    Tino was a good worker and not too long he was commended by the judge for giving evidence in the high court something members of the tax force has never achieved..they’re afraid of court but poor tino with the advise of the commisioner tino own country man together with the pm they choose to target him…it hurts me to know thats how they run the police force but im pretty sure nothing last forever and just look at the previous commioners they all run overseas when age catch up with them and they have no where to go so take note mister..i’m not surprised at ur actions bcuz thats who u are but the powers that be is making a huge mistake in having u to run an already sensitive police force..shame…smh..

    The man made a mistake and gave a dude a firearm n that i blame him for totally n the man is convicted and fined,so why do u guys still ramsacked the young man home and charge him for the same firearm another man was charged with already,something isnt right..there are so many big guns dealing drugs and have guns that u guys know about but bcuz its you guys friend n playing politics u have to ensure that tino be dealt with accordinly..you suspend him but it wasnt enough..we all we’ll see the rewards of ur stupidity when officers decide not to work and u guys will be left on ur own.something isn’t right in this country and if something drastic doesnt happen sooner rather than later then we’re doomed to fail.mr pm plzz fire the commisioner,minister of national security,president now before u lose the country that we so love.

      ‘beat’

      Despite what he did to you and your feelings about him, do not hate him. Wish him no harm. Our Lord said, “Love your enemies…Do good to those who hate you that you may be called children of God.” It is difficult to do and to forgive. However, after all is said and done, we are to obey if we expect the Lord to forgive us our sins.
      There are some people when they are well and times are good to them, they think that they own the world, can do anything and no harm will come to them. God knows better than that. Those who are enlightened know better. It is only a matter of time that they will pay for their sins, for their actions, right on this earth.
      As people nurse their hurts, they must leave everything to our patient God who knows, sees and hears all things and with the words of Our Lord, “Vengeance is Mine, says the Lord. I will repay.”
      People do not realize that when they find themselves in a predicament, God is telling them something and it is to change. I hope in time he will change and become a better person for his mortal and spiritual benefit.

      What is so surprising about that? Is it because it happened in Dominica and it is a small country where most people know each other?
      The police are expected to uphold the Law and must uphold it.
      This happens elsewhere in the world specifically in big countries. The Law is the Law and if they disobey the Law they must be arrested and charged. Depending on the type of crime, they could be given a desk job or leave with or without pay until the case is called.
      When it is called, if they lose their case and are sentenced, they will be officially dismissed. It has happened in Canada and the U.S. and no doubt in Europe. There are good police and bad ones everywhere.

    Tino is the cream of the crop in Portsmouth police and this is how they treat him just because of a little mix-up?! I hope when they say he has been relieved of his duty i hope they mean that he has be temporarily suspended and not dismissed (fired).

    Tino is destined for bigger better things, so this will just be a small distraction on his path to greatness!

    • Justice and Truth
      September 14, 2012

      @ Mystical

      When people are relieved of their duty, it means that “they are fired/dismissed”. It is a diplomatic way of saying, ‘You are fired and no longer can retain your position and will not get it back’. If per chance he wins his case, then, he could be reinstated. He would have to fight for it in that, obtain legal means to assist him.
      Dominica does not have a similar Labor Law System and Human Rights as progressive countries.
      Check your dictionary or the Thesaurus or computer research for the meaning of the word ‘relieve’.

      This is happening worldwide. Was it not a policeman who shot Dorothy Prince in Antigua and caused her death? May her soul rest in peace.
      Times are changing. Today, they are not receiving preferential treatment from their own. In years gone by there were too many cover-ups. Considering the ever-increasing crimes, people are frustrated and angry and are also speaking up. Finally, they are being listened to and action is taken also to alleviate crimes.
      Consider too, some people may join the Police Force for a secure paying job and this is as far as it goes.
      The authorities must conduct a thorough investigation of their profile prior to employing them. The Police Force should employ people of integrity. The people expect this of their Police Force.

    So the police was relieved of his duties because he left a gun with someone else. I agree that was wrong, Bad move! But fired!

    A police steal $16,000.00 from the Melville Hall Airport, found guilty in court and got a promotion after that.
    Police pull a gun on an armless man at Convent High School, he still working!

    Bubbles pulled and gun (unlicensed) on some folks by the Villas and he got a slapped on the wrist and even had his Gun back before the case was heard…

      This man gave years of service to the Dominican people! Sleepless nights with less pay, risk as a driver for less pay! Are you getting it! He could have been charged…I agree but dismissed? No.
      This was a very hard way for him.
      Any police or member of public who has done nothing wrong cast the first stone!!
      i am waiting for your comments!

        Once employees commit a crime and are arrested and charged they will lose your job. This is universal. There are no ifs and buts about that. It is a just dismissal. He is a policeman and he should have conducted himself with integrity as expected. He can no longer serve the public. This is the way it is.

        I agree totally, If it was the poor man on the street the woukld have sent him to stockfarm headfirst. Allu Dominicans too mauderer…poor tino my foot, he was a good officer my big toe, if he was so good he would not have given another man his gun. Be sensible Dominicans what good for he gooose good for the gander if it was another man allu would say send him up. So I totally agree the fine should even be higher…for a man of the law he ought to show example…..by the way I went to school with him he doubled 6 times how did he even manage to be constable….whoosh food for thought.

        What do you mean? You typed an exclamation mark and not a question mark.
        Did you mean that the person did not learn at school or they never learned at school because they were not properly taught?
        If you mean the first, I can understand. If you mean the latter, this is not true. I attended elementary and high school in Dominica and I can vouch for this. I had dedicated and intelligent teaches all the way.
        Life is an ongoing and learning process. As we grow older we should learn more by reading and listening to certain programs, the manner in which educated people speak, correct English. We also learn more especially for those who reside in a progressive country. This is, if they open their minds and are interested in learning.

      Are you trying to say : The Police Commissioner (Head of Police ),should look into what goes on at the district or village Police stations? Or are you purposely writing like this? I’m going to believe the latter because I had no inclination that a Dominican would mutilate the English language to that degree. I was told, we drag words and sing our pronunciations but being incomprehensible was never mentioned.

      For my own reasons, I’ll believe you are only messing with the blog and if you are not, take your time with your next contribution. Shalom

    Is that the same machine gun incident or another incident. If not then do we expect another police officer to be arrested? Daniel I am slowly gravitating towards favoring you as police commissioner. If you can genuinely finalize the electronic forensic analysis on the Sicko Secko case I will be your biggest supporter. If another administration comes into power I will be batting for you as my police commissioner. You have a chance to make history in Caribbean Mr Carbon – you will be known as the top COP who stood up against his political director in the interest of justice for the people. Let the chips fall where they may even if lawyers and senior counsels go to jail for obstruction of justice and even money laundering- No name no warrant.

    This arrest raises a lot of questions. I know Tino very well and surprisingly he is from Viellecase, the home village of PM Skeritt and acting police commissioner Mr. carbon. In fact Tino and Carbon served at the Possie station together just before the latter was pronoted P.C. and were both very close friends and supporters of the PM. Let’s see how things will unfold.

    These days the police seem to be very lucky in searching with success cars with guns driven by civilian. Paul was driving what appears to be his own vehicle when a gun belonging to a police officer was found by the police, while last week it was Telemaque who was found driving a car with a machine gun belonging to an unknown police officer. What’s happening guys?

    Strangely enough though, Tino was aressted and relieved of his duties for a gun which I supposed was licensed and was not pointed at anyone, while Bubbles was found guilty of pointing an unlicesed gun at someone, and some how the gun was returned to him without any arrest. Can police spokesman John Carbon, who is from that same area and was serving at the Possie station during the Bubbles sagga tell us what he knows about it?

      When one door closes another is open for you Tino. We all know, in and around possie, how hard-working you are when it comes to your job…u don’t mind doing it for even less pay and sleepless nights than those who sit their backside in d office because u love what you do….Keep your head up my brother, you will make it through….one love

      Is Bubbles a police officer who knows better and should up-hold the law at all times? Y not use another incident as an example? Has to be Bubbles because he is close to the DLP and the PM. Get of it and move on man!

    big deal in most developed countries a shotgun is a sporting firearm used for hunting once it is designed for hunting and not a tactical shotgun…
    if this man is guilty then 90 percent of the police force that hunt have an illegal firearm…

    The right to bear arms is critical to any freedom loving nation, we must abolish all laws prohibiting the use of a firearm, Gun ownership is the very foundation of personal liberty that is why Patrick Henry fought for it, when the citizens armed Tyrants worry, when the state is armed citizens worry. :mrgreen:

      @ Morehei

      Why do Dominican civilians of all need guns? When I was a child and growing up in DA as many others, we never heard about guns. Such innocent years. There was hardly ever a murder, probably one in 10 years and it was not with guns. As I recall they were lover’s quarrels and jealousy. Why all of a sudden Dominicans have guns and which they use during a robbery and to kill including those who are drug dealers and pushers?
      For a Christian country, people who were baptized in the Faith, go to Church and pray, what is happening in Dominica? What caused this, that so many guns are in Dominica, a nation which does not have a gun store, that some nationals think it is nothing to use them to shoot, injure and murder their very own nationals. This should not be so. Something has to be done to restore Dominica to what it was before, a safe country where nationals and visitors could walk around, go on a picnic and bathe without they being accosted by criminals, young men with a face mask and guns.
      Then there are young men who murder young men. When I lived in DA this was unheard of. Those young men should be in school and continue their schooling in order to obtain a legal paying job for their benefit and that of the DA society.
      In addition, there is drug trafficking. Some of them grow marijuana even though they are aware that it is illegal to do so. They defy the Law and expect to be vindicated claiming that they are unemployed and have children to feed. I will say no more on this matter.
      All these criminal activities are shocking for a once peaceful country which only had petty criminals and nothing of what is currently occurring in Dominica. Do you see what those criminals have done to Dominica and its reputation?
      Let us promote love, harmony, peace, safety and security in Dominica. This is what the new Commissioner is trying to do. He needs the support and cooperation of all nationals. May God bless Dominica and its nationals.
