The dancehall deejay came under scrutiny from the highest level in the police force last month after releasing a short film for his hit single “After All.” The video features police officers wearing uniforms with a marked police car in the opening scene, and in another scene Alkaline and his crew toting high-powered rifles and handguns. The cops in the cut are also facing disciplinary actions and could be fired from the force.
Sources told Dancehall HipHop that Alkaline and his manager/sister Karina Beckford were both questioned by cops in the presence of their attorney and was later released. “They were cooperative in our investigation and assured us that they will make themselves available in the future if necessary,” police sources told us.
The National Security Minister Robert Montague also chimed in saying that actions will be taken when the investigation is completed. The police vehicle in the music video is also registered with the government and that could be problematic for the cops involved and the music video producer and director. The cops did not get permission from the force to take part in the music video or used a state-owned equipment.
