So I have been reading these books this year about a technological revolution taking place in the world.
So I have a question for you — since this is a space for truth. Let’s begin with a fantastic supposition. Suppose you were granted a supermajority in Gordon House right now; if you were Prime Minister on Monday morning how would you stop crime in Jamaica?
There are two recent crimes that have had an outsized effect on me – a really personal effect that serves to anger me to no end. The first is the murder of Dougie Chambers. and the second the rash of horrific violence against children personified by the victimization of Ananda Dean. And it is with them in mind that I ask this question.
What needs to be done to prevent the murders, the rapes, the extortion, the petty corruption, the flagrant flouting of the law– what doable and preferably economical solutions are there. I will salt the jar with the first comment on this one.I realize that Jamaicans have been pontificating about these issues for at least 10 years with no improvement in the situation, yet I’m asking you to humor me.
Please contribute: Who specifically (an individual or a type/constituency of people) are the ones causing crime in Jamaica? What are they doing that is making the crime wave worse? How should they be counteracted by the majority of citizens?
