Did you seek permission from REDUX???

What Redux ever done for the Guyanese community in RH? All he does is lip service. The man is down right dirty the way he communicated with other members. He has a lot of personal issues and he need to checked himself into a mental hospital.

Jet Blue offers free flights for the funeral for officers wishing to attend the funeral - Associated Press

 

JetBlue Airways says it will offer free flights for police officers who want to attend the funeral of slain New York Police Department Officer Randolph Holder.

The company says it is honored to help shuttle the officers wishing to pay tribute to a fallen comrade.

Holder will be buried in Georgetown next Friday.

JetBlue said it would offer free flights to police officers who wanted to attend.
Jet Blue extended the same offer for the funerals of slain NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos who were killed in the line of duty last December.

Holder was shot in the head Tuesday evening as he responded to calls of shots fired and a bicycle stolen at gunpoint. Holder and his partner chased the suspect, who opened fire.

Police Commissioner William Bratton said at a news conference Wednesday that funeral arraignments for Officer Randolph Holder were still being finalized.

30-year-old Tyrone Howard was taken into custody after the shooting and is expected to be charged Wednesday. It isn’t clear whether he has a lawyer who could comment on the allegations.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the fatal shooting is another example of the growing crisis of gun violence.

Cuomo told reporters Wednesday that the slayings of police officers “has to stop.”

Holder, a native of Guyana, had five years on the job and worked in the anti-crime unit of PSA no. 5, a command that polices public housing developments in East Harlem and Harlem.

His father and his grandfather were both police officers here and Holder joined the NYPD after he moved to New York.

 Vishnu according to New York Times

 

http://caribnewsdesk.com/news/...ana-emphasizes-unity

Reproduced from New York Times by Liz Robbins

 

For the 200 or so.....

(a) family, friends, (b) officers and (c) passers-by (Liberty Avenue Shoppers) who gathered in the triangular intersection off Liberty Avenue in Richmond Hill, a neighborhood known as Little Guyana,

 

Further according to NY Times.....the modest vigil underscored a powerful message. “Unity is strength,” Mr. Holder said.

 

 

The area there is predominantly Indo-Guyanese, the majority ethnic group in Guyana. Late in the week, (1) the event’s organizing group asked (2) State Senator James Sanders Jr. of Queens to invite Mr. Holder, whose family is Afro-Guyanese.
When Mr. Holder accepted,.....(a) family, friends,

he brought 50 relatives and friends in several vans with a police escort. Together, the groups mourned by candlelight, dismissing ethnic divisions that have long marked their homeland.
“This has become an opportunity for us to become Guyanese all over again,” said Vishnu Mahadeo, the president of the Richmond Hill Economic Development Council, which organized the vigil.

“One of our own was shot down and we need to be there for each other.”

If as Guyanese ....we were trying to be there for one another....why do we Involve James Sanders ....when there are many Guyanese Officials and Groups we can work with?

 

 

(c) passers-by & Sybils Customers....another 50 Gloria Jardine, 58, came from the Bronx to shop for traditional Indo-Guyanese items. She learned of the vigil from a handwritten sign in Sybil’s Bakery and then stayed, she said, just to shake Mr. Holder’s hand.

 

Officer Holder’s death has resonated back in Guyana, and some diaspora leaders see a boomerang effect. Six months ago the country formed a new coalition government with leaders from both Afro- and Indo-Guyanese parties.

 

 (b) officers.....about 40

(d) Rickford Burke group another 50

“The country has been coming together, there has been a sense of healing, of reconciliation, of national pride,” said Rickford Burke, president of the Caribbean Guyana Institute for Democracy, based in Brooklyn. “And that has affected the way people are approaching this tragedy — that period of oneness that has taken hold.”

 

 

Question besides the .....

(a) family, friends,(60)

(b) officers (40)

(c) passers-by & Sybills Customers (50)

(d) Rickford Burke Supporters (50)

 

where was the following or supporters of

(1) the event’s organizing group

(2) State Senator James Sanders Jr. of Queens.

 

Richmond Hill needs to Unite....

“Unity is strength,” Mr. Holder said.

Guyana Elections Over....PPP Lost...

Support and Promote your own Guyanese not James Sanders...

 

Or Rickford Burke and others

 will continue to highlight our Failures

in our own Back Yard.

President David Granger has extended sympathy to the family of the Guyanese born, New York Police Officer who was gunned down while in the line of duty earlier this week.

The 33-year-old policeman, Randolph Holder, was in his fifth year in the New York Police Department, when his life was cut short by a gunshot from a robbery suspect.

President Granger telephoned Holder’s grandmother, Elizabeth Lovell, who raised the young man and who still lives in Guyana, to express his sympathy.

The President said the young man was in the prime of his life.

The grandmother expressed appreciation for the call and said Holder was always a disciplined and ‘mannerly’ child. She told the President that because of the field of work he was in, he had always said that should anything happen to him; he would like to be returned to Guyana and buried with his mother.

His mother died when he was 16-years-old.

The fallen hero’s body will be flown into Guyana next Thursday, escorted by members of the NYPD for his burial. Funeral services will take place in both New York and in Guyana.
