Roy examined the Petition for Bail and read the Memorandum of Reasons submitted by Magistrate Judy Latchman. He expressed disquiet with the application of the law in light of the findings of fact made by the learned Magistrate.Dawson was then admitted to Bail in the sum of $50,000 and ordered to lodge his passport within five days of his release from Prison. He is also required to attend Court on every day that the Appeal is being heard.He was also admitted to bail in the sum of $75,000 by Chief Justice Ian Chang after another Petition for bail was heard on Friday last.It is alleged that on February 18, 2013, whilst performing duties, Dawson, then a serving rank of the force, entered the Globe Yard on Waterloo Street and approached a group of men.The rank walked up and held on to one of them. Phillip Small noticed what had happened and intervened by speaking to the rank about the way he handled the man.Dawson reportedly became annoyed and cuffed Small who returned the favour. Dawson then discharged three shots from his gun – two hit Small on his right leg.The bulletproof vest which Dawson was wearing that day was later observed to have had several cuts about it and he was subsequently charged with damaging the force’s property.The force had revealed that Dawson was issued with a pistol and 15 rounds of ammunition but when he returned after the incident,Wholesale Stitched NFL Jerseys, the gun had 14 rounds. They contended that the rank should have returned 12 rounds, since three were discharged in Globe Yard.Two matching spent shells were recovered from the scene and the two extra rounds were suspected to have been illegally acquired. Following a four-month probe,Cheap Jerseys From China, three charges were instituted against the cop who resides at Murphy Street, Good Intent, West Bank Demerara.Dawson was accused of discharging a loaded firearm at Philip Small,Cheap Jerseys Authentic, with intent to maim, disfigure, disable or cause him grievous bodily harm on February 18,Wholesale NFL Jerseys China, at Georgetown. He was also charged with having two live rounds of 9mm ammunition without a licence.Dawson was also accused of unlawfully and maliciously damaging the $245,000 bullet proof vest.For shooting Small, the Magistrate recalled that Dawson,Wholesale Cheap Jerseys, in an unsworn testimony, had claimed that Small attacked him and attempted to stab him with a scissors.Nonetheless, Magistrate Latchman said that a firearm should be the last resort of any police rank and noted a court ruling where it was explained that the fact that an act was considered necessary does not mean that the resulting action was reasonable.The Magistrate said, however, that one shot was enough to restrain Small and that a member of the TSU should not have acted in that manner. She noted that Dawson shot at Small twice and ruled that the rank did not act out of self-defence but rather with intent.During mitigation, Defence Attorney Lyndon Amsterdam urged the court to consider that Dawson opened fire during the execution of duties and in the heat of the moment rather than in a coldblooded, contemplated moment.He added that as it related to discharging the firearm, his client was in the situation where he was required to execute his duties. Amsterdam said that Dawson had been present at all sessions of his trial.The lawyer requested a suspended sentence. Amsterdam asked that the cop be spared incarceration and not be sent where he could be harmed and exposed to “criminal elements.”Recently, a number of policemen have been Charged and placed before the Courts for various acts committed during the execution of their duties and most of them have been found guilty by various magistrates.
