Loud Vulgar Music being played in public places

Loud Vulgar Music being played in public places

18/07/16

Good Morning HE. Ms. Carriere,

I am writing to you as the head of Security/Police about the fact of the verbally degrading  sound pollution in public places, especially at times when the public/families are enjoying a swim or socializing on the beach’s, with their young children and family members  eg: Little Bay beach and other public functions, especially on Saturday and Sundays.

The disc jockeys are playing music with Luda; Vulgar and Degrading words  especially targeted to young girls, at very high volumes which is very disturbing, along with electronic sounds of Sirens; Gun shooting and Explosions.

I know we have Laws that contravene this type of music being played in public. I personally witnessed just yesterday Sunday afternoon between 2:30PM and 4:30PM.

A local business man who was so very appalled by the type of vulgar music, went up to the Disc Jockeys and asked them to stop playing that type of music, they just ignored him, so he asked two Police officers on foot patrol to ask them to change their music, I saw them go to the Bar and speak to them, they changed the music for all of five minutes until the officers were out of sight, then proceeded to start playing the same type of vulgar music again.

Ms. Carriere, prior to the Volcano, we had almost three times the population, the disc jockeys only problem was loud music, we all knew that music was for enjoying, not to be degrading women.

Just a few weeks ago, on June 29th. at a Music Festival in neighbouring St. Kitts, an American singer 50 cent was arrested; Jailed and Fined for swearing and using Vulgar language in his song on stage, he was actually warned prior to his performance Not to use any indecent language while on stage, it made the World News..

Until we stop this type of music, young women will continue to be abused, as the men think that if famous singers are doing it, we can too, and now the young children hearing this type of music are beginning to think that it is normal.. NO .. NO.. NO..

Ms. Carriere – Can you Please instruct your police officers to “STOP” this type of Vulgar Sound Pollution on our Beautiful Island Montserrat.

Montserrat used to have a censuring committee, to screen/ban vulgar music from being played on the radio and in public places.

I look forward to your response, as a very concerned Montserratian.

Sincerely,

John Howes, Capt.

The businessman spoke to us on the matter who noted that the disc jockey’s mother is an ex-police, who was at the scene of the behaviour complained of.
