Recording entertainers Vybz Kartel and Stylo G have responded to reports of two Jamaica Constabulary Force officers being investigated for listening to their new ‘Touch Down’ remix with Nicki Minaj.
“Jamaica authority no have ntn fi do eno,” Kartel wrote online. The incarcerated deejay also uploaded a video of a member of the US Army listening to one of his tracks, “Wonder if U.S. authorities gonna investigate this soldier for singing Kartel?. . ..nah! They got more #important things to do,” he added.
While Stylo G chimed in saying, “Everybody suppose to sing the new National Anthem 🤷🏾♂️#[email protected] all police a touchdown 👏🏾 #HmmmMmmm.”
In the controversial clip which has since gone viral on social media, a policewoman can be heard singing Vybz Kartel’s explicit verse on the Dancehall banger, “Just touchdown like NASA, Nicki pumpum fatta / While you deh a your job, your girl giving me a blow job.”
The police’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) says the video has been brought to higher authorities to determine whether or not it is a breached any of the rules in the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) social media policy
The JCF social media policy states that “A person identifiable as a police officer who posts offensive, racist or obscene material while off duty on social media sites, could be in breach of the Jamaica Constabulary Force Ethics and Integrity Policy in the same way as if he/she shouted offensive, racist or obscene material in public whilst in uniform.”
It also states that “whether on or off duty, a police employee’s conduct will reflect on the organisation” and that “all employees must protect the reputation of the police service by behaving in a lawful and appropriate manner consistent with the force’s Ethics and Integrity Policy.”
The policy also goes on to state that everything posted on social media, whether it was intended to be private or not, becomes public property and warns officers against posts that may reflect ‘poorly’ on themselves and their organisation if ‘quoted in the media’ or ‘raised in court while they are giving evidence’.
