VIDEO: UTECH Guards Brutally Beating Gay Man In Jamaica

Yesterday a video surfaced on YouTube showing a gang of security guards at the University of Technology UTECH in Jamaica brutally beating a gay man in a classroom.

The video sent social media sites Facebook and Twitter into a frenzy.

The student seen in the video was caught in a bathroom with another man in a very compromised position. The other man escaped the wrath of the mob and the guards but this one wasn’t so lucky.

The video shows the guards draping, kicking and punching the man while shouting gay slurs. Luckily for this guy, they shielded him from an angry mob waiting outside.

“Send dem out security, unuh alone waan have fun a beat dem,” one onlooker shouted.

Today Urban Islandz learned that the University administration is in damage control.

According to reports, Marksman Limited, the security company that employed the guards, has fired all the officers involved in the fiasco.

“The security officers acted outside the scope of their duties,” Marksman said in a statement. “The actions of the security guards are not in keeping with Marksman Limited’s contractual arrangements and on-going mandate to protect and secure life and property.”

The National Youth Council of Jamaica (NYC) has also issued a statement condemning the incident.

“All forms of abuse must be soundly condemned regardless of an individual sexual orientation. We must be resolute in championing the rights of every single Jamaican,” the NYC said in the statement.

    Gays will never be accepted in Jamaica so why they keep pushing their luck.

    those Security Guards have simply proven that there is little Customer Service Training being given to prepare them for the worst case scenarios. Now two households face the consequence of the absence of income. Homosexuals need to concede that they have an obligation to control their desires for moments of privacy and that public spaces can ever be considered private for sexual intercourse. It is public space. Jamaica needs to begin a media managed layperson program on the law and jurisdictions, this is not better or worse than vigilante justice and both need to be controlled. Our sons and daughters need to stop a minute and check themselves and determine what it the trigger hair on their propensity to violence and senses that makes their public behaviour so boisterous…is it hollywood proving there is a streak of violence in all of us? Or is it us refusing to find the root cause and taking control? What makes some do and others don’t?

    This video is disturbing on so many levels. All people should be accepted regardless of race or sexual preference. You would think that university students would have enough common sense to understand that. It is time Jamaicans mature and stop behaving like thugs and criminals.

    this is y they r not goin away, people like NYC of jamaica come up wit this f–kery bout “All forms of abuse must be soundly condemned regardless of an individual sexual orientation. We must be resolute in championing the rights of every single Jamaican,” an so because of that they r basically protecting them…an while they under protection, they multiply, an because their numbers are gettin larger plus dem under protection, dem start get bright an strt do them f–kery inna public more often now, I can promise u that this whole gay thing with the world is goin to end very badly unless somebody step up an do something about it….F–K U NYC your doin a sh–tin job so far (my opinions).
