My heart aches and a drowsy numbness pain my sense. I use this poetic phrase to enhance the above caption. Since the year began the senior citizens in the Happy Hill Community have been plagued every weekend by the “Sugar Palace Bar” with very loud music from between 4-5 p.m until the wee hours of the morning minutes to 2 a.m.
The worse of these sessions was the weekend of March 20th & 21st – 2 nights in succession. The latter ended after 1 a.m Sunday morning. The Police and the Minister of National Security who is the Prime Minister have been told on several occasions about this selfish, inconsiderate and diabolical behaviour and the responses were I or we will look into it.
This brings to mind the care, concern and appreciation for senior citizens who have a right to life as any other person in the community but what is worse is that the motto of the law men is and I quote, “To protect and to serve”.
There is also a law which states that no person or persons should be disturbing the peace to the annoyance of other people in the immediate surroundings. Apart from this, Shakespeare’s Macbeth puts it quite plainly that Sleep, after Food is Great Nature’s second course.
I would like to state further that it would be extremely disrespectful to the dear mother of the Minister of National Security who does not live in the immediate vicinity and is in her nineties. Added to that he also lives far away. The most annoying thing is that the said proprietor received an Independence award – I keep wondering if it is for disturbing the peace on weekends.
Mr.Commissioner of Police, stop allowing yourself to be used as a rubber stamp thus giving me the impression that the operators of Sugar Palace Bar are untouchables. I am also getting the impression that something else goes on other than the sale of Carib, Stag and Guinness.
We the senior citizens of the said community make a special appeal to the relevant authorities to have this matter resolved as soon as possible.
