Title: Crime Prevention

Comments: The announced proposal to release 1300 prisoners held charged with committing the offence of kidnapping could only happen in a democracy such as ours administered by a bunch of idiotic politicians. How on earth could this contribute to helping the police to combat the crime of kidnapping and other crimes here which is at present booming?. The mentality and logical reasoning of these citizens in the corridors or power here are astonishing. Just unbelievable. They are just a complete bunch of nutters and should all be immediately confined to St Ann's mental asylum.

Comments: [In my opinion… ] The ordinary citizens of this nation may well be alarmed and somewhat immune to the crime scenario here, and are most helpless to stop the galloping crime rate here. However relying on politicians and senior police officers here to help to reduce our crime rate is pointless .These guys are helping to ensure that the situation remains the same or even get worse. I refer to the case of Police inspector Michael Seales who is charged with the criminal act of sedition and has now been elected as president of the Police services social and welfare association by what could only be considered members of a corrupt Mafia gang. What has gone wrong with this nation when citizens in positions of status and positions of authority cannot tell right from wrong? In my opinion they are only wearing masks of respectability and are have the mentality of the pimps and thieves you find hanging around Frederick street.

Title: Murder rate here

Comments: Doing a quick calculation and making a prediction bearing in mind the rate of annual murders so far this year. It looks like we are going to end up with another annual rate at around the 400 mark. A definite sign that we have made no progress where stemming the flow of murders are concerned. The crime scenario was suppose to have changed with the appointment of Mr Williams when he replaced Mr Gibbs. The pundits here said that the appointment of a local senior policeman to replace Mr Gibbs as commissioner was the solution to our crime problems. Well how wrong they were, as they usually are.. Things have in fact got much worst and there are no signs of any let up. The truth is we just haven't got the calibre of senior policemen with the required experience ,honesty,sense of duty,self discipline and morals to meet our needs and to make a difference to our crime problems here.

Title: Crime pays here

Comments: One of the main reasons for the high rate of crime here is because crime pays big money here. The potential and hardened criminals are well aware of this. They know this by what is going on at the higher levels of our society. They see how many overnight millionaires have been created by dabbling in corruption and kidnappings, and how many criminals including murderers are escaping the arms of the law, and escaping the associated punishment. A good example is despite the fact, that almost all the crimes of corruption on this island have been committed by citizens of status none are behind bars. The strange thing about it, is that they are even allowed to keep the loot and never pay any form of retribution. Two crimes that have now become accepted here because of their frequency of occurrence are corruption and kidnappings. Murder of course is even more frequent ,but because this is linked with death it is difficult to make it acceptable to all citizens. However, it would now appear that the punishment for committing murder here is gradually being minimized and in some cases suspects are even allowed to walk free.

Title: Crime

Comments: It would appear that because their is so much serious crimes and corruption here, certain crimes are now no longer treated in a serious manner and has become acceptable. These include corruption and kidnappings. Last year we had 98 kidnappings [Newsday: 12 January 2016] yet the majority of the public knew nothing about these crimes. Now murder has become so common here that citizens have become immune to its effects on the nation ,and gradually this crime is begin to be treated with less significance by the police and the judiciary. I imagine in a couple of decades from now if the situation continues as it is now ,the crime of murder will also become non punishable or its retribution seriously minimized, and to some extent treated as acceptable on this island. The writing is on the wall.
