Title: Murder count
Comments: The annual rate of murders on this island is most likely to surpass last year's figure. The police need more well trained officers and is generally lacking in manpower to be able to deal effectively with our habitual and hardened murderers who now kill at random for the joy of it. Politicians here have wiped their hands of the responsibility for crime and has past the buck to the police lock, stock, and barrel thus turning them into a law unto themselves. There is at present no crime plan as the experts here have run out of ideas and are still not facing the reality of the problem. They continue to offer meaningless lip service and are quite prepared to accept the daily slaughter of our citizens without dong anything meaningful or really beneficial to resolve the problem that has been lingering here since our independence. This is despite promises from various politicians for the past five decades to rid our society of this evil practice. Without a deterrent such as the death penalty,and the resumption of hangings, there will never be any let up in the rate of murders on this island.
