Who else from the administration flies out this morning and what is the purpose of the travel ?
Two men were gunned down yesterday afternoon in what is being described as a hit. Its alleged that those killed were part of a group who has been staging a number of robberies in the olympic way area as well as Majesty Gardens aka Back to.
Things however changed when last week thursday a certain individual was relieved of his jewellery as well as money while at the hardware located along Olympic way.
It is further understood that the killers were in the area from as early as yesterday morning waiting on the two guys to show up and as soon as they arrived, were peppered with gunshots from high powered weapons before escaping the area.
I am sure that As far as the cops are concerned that is another set of crime that have been cleared up.
There is no strong consumer advocacy group in Jamaica and the people of the country refuse to have their voices heard all due to narrow political interest.
PNP supporters will not call out for a boycott of anything once it implemented by the PNP and under a PNP government and the same applies for the JLP.
If however the policies are applied by their political opponents you will get some protest before eventually everyone complies.
When one look at countries that are in a better financial position that us protesting for days over price increases of a few cents and which in many cases represent a low % increase, we are like ” a dat dem a protest fah”.
In Jamaica we accept 20 and even 100% increases with a smile because close to half the population supports those making out lives harder and feel a sense of betryal if the protest.
Then there is the big class divide that helps support these no protest. Those Jamaican who can easily afford to say pay the increase for an item, will go out of there way to make it publicly known, that they can afford it. What this does is to help separate them from the rest of the crowd.
We are a people who like to ensure our social status is known and so anything that help us to keep that in place is accepted. Its a case of ” see mi betta dan u cuz mi can buy it n u caan do dat, so u done know say a so we roll”.
Until we change our mindset, the poor in Jamaica will continue to bear the brunt of the increases and become poorer, while the middle class will cease to exist.
Our mentality has kept us back this long and appears set to continue in this direction for sometime to come.
The community held by Member of Parliament and Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller has become a menace to workers who walk from Three miles to their places of work along spanishtown rd.
Last week I reported that at least 6 persons were robbed in different circumstances between the entrance on Marcus Garvey dr and Spanishtown rd.
This morning the Hunts Bay police would have a report of at least two incidences which occurred along the spanishtown entrance to Majesty Gardens where close to 8 persons were held up and robbed at gun point.
It did not matter that the workers were walking in a group of 6 in one case, as 5 men held that group at gun point and relieved them of money and cellphones.
This has now become a hot spot and the police post that was supposed to have been in the area has now been removed, which has resulted in a new spate of robberies taking place in that area.
What is the Hunts Bay police going to do about this growing menace , which is predicted to get worse as it gets closer to christmas?
When will the cops at hunts bay act ?
Andrew Holness and the chairman of the independent comissioner minutes ago, report that the reported, which was leaked to the media is not the same report that was produced and what he has in hand.
The commissioner said the final report was 135 pgs and not the over 150pgs as reported by the two daily papers.
This raises a big question, where did this report come from and why now.
Andrew Holness must accept responsibilty for this mess, had he published the report, this report in the papers could have been dismissed.
What on earth is really going on ?
A JAMAICAN man who allegedly attempted to smuggle through airport security $32,000 worth of marijuana in a cardbox box containing frozen fish, was arrested on Wednesday.
