Woman who threatened cops online makes court-ordered apology

Jodie Miller

Nassau, BAHAMAS- A student has apologised for a profane rant against police.

Jamie Miller’s court-ordered apology came one day after her guilty plea to threats of death.

Miller expressed her anti-police feelings on her Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt on April 6 directed the University of The Bahamas business major to apologise on the same social media platforms that she made the offensive posts.

In order to maintain a clean criminal record, the 21-year-old had to make a public apology for her remarks by midnight April 7.

Additionally, Miller has to complete anger management classes and personally apologise to WPC D’andre Cadet at her next court appearance on August 6.

Please forgive me

On her Facebook account, Miller said, “On Sunday April 5th 2020, I posted on Twitter and Facebook certain remarks referring to police officers. My sentiments were highly offensive and threatening to WPC D’andre Cadet and members of the Royal Bahamas Police Force. The remarks that I posted were out of character and that type of behaviour should have never happened.

“I grew up in a family, where I was taught that the police are our friends; they are our protectors; and they are to be respected. To the commissioner of police, all of his hardworking and dedicated police officers, inclusive of WPC 3912 Cadet, my family members, friends, and all those who were offended by my posts, I sincerely apologise from the bottom of my heart for what I have done.”

Bad memories

She made the threatening posts after a video of two police officers arresting a man in the Kemp Road area on April 5 went viral. A group of people tried to prevent the arrest and an officer fired several shots from his firearm.

Miller posted the video on her Facebook account and commented: “That’s only two police. They should have killed them.”

Then she tweeted, “Nassau police so f*** up. I don’t know why people just don’t start killing them for nothing. ”

After viewing the video and Miller’s, WPC 3912 D’andre Cadet made a complaint to the Central Detective Unit saying that she feared for her life.

Police arrested Miller at her home. When they asked her why she wanted police dead, Miller said that’s how she felt after she saw the video.

Attorney Lennox Coleby said the video brought back memories of a painful encounter that Miller had with police three years ago.
