first_imgChuck Urges JPs to Visit Lockups JusticeOctober 21, 2011 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail KINGSTON — Minister of Justice, Hon. Delroy Chuck, has urged Justices of the Peace (JPs) to visit the jails regularly and demand that they are kept in proper sanitary conditions, and that inmates are rightfully detained. Mr. Chuck, who was speaking at a Special Meeting with JPs in Toll Gate, Clarendon on Wednesday (October 19) at the Juici Patties office, emphasized that when they visit the jails, theys must pay careful attention to the station’s logbooks, to ensure that persons are not detained beyond the time for which the law provides and that the jails are habitable. “I want you to work with the Custos to ensure that the jails are habitable places for human beings. We have to clean up these jails cells, it is human beings that we are putting in them and we must treat them like human beings,” the Minister said. He noted that anyone can end up behind bars, and if they even have to spend just one hour in there, at least, it should be pleasant and decent. “I am going to make sure that we can really move out injustice at every level of our criminal justice system. It is important for all of us… let us do justice in our court system and (our) justice system,” he told the audience. Mr. Chuck said that keeping the jails clean was one aspect of delivering and ensuring justice to accused persons, and the vigilance of the JPs can help to improve the infrastructure. “Between the Ministry of National Security and the Ministry of Justice, we want the courthouses and the police stations to be places where you don’t have to hold your nose, or close your eyes, to visit. They can be attractive places,” he stated. Advertisements RelatedChuck Urges JPs to Visit Lockups By Garfield L.

Pure Fix unveils three track racing Keirin setups

first_imgStep up one level to the Keirin Pro, and for $580 you get the quicker handling frameset with more aero tube shaping. It also gets so small component upgrades to drop weight further and zip you around the race course faster. At the top though is the Keirin Pro Elite, still for just $970. It builds off the same aero frame as the Pro, which a big spec upgrade. The Pro Elite includes Pure Fix’s new all carbon fork, plus Miche and Deda components to be ready for proper elite racing right out of the box. Like the Pro, the Pro Elite also is available in three colors: a simple shiny black, raw alloy, or the shimmery duochrome that changes color depending on the angle light hits We previewed Pure Fix’s 6061 Keirin Pro frameset at Interbike last fall, and now the brand has pulled the curtain off of three complete builds of the bike. Each of the three builds starts off with a track-specific alloy race frame ready to hit the banks of a velodrome, or the sketchy urban turns of events like last weekend’s Red Hook Crit. In either case the Keirins deliver race performance at three options under a grand. Take a close look at the bikes after the jump…center_img The base level Keirin complete will set you back just $470 and is hard to beat as a proper track racer. Available only in black, this entry-level race bike is put together from budget-friendly, mostly house-branded components, still up to the task of battling on the boards or the mean streets. It uses a slightly slackened seattube, a bit longer wheelbase, and a little less refined heavier frameset to deliver comparable performance at a lower cost.last_img read more
