Taming the Crime Monster – Part two.

In the previous post I spoke about and will continue here on suggested strategies..

GPS Tracking and Counter Intelligence


Once a container on the wharf has been detected that contains contraband, this container (be it in a barrel, package whatever) should be fitted with a miniature GPS logger, voice recorder and covert miniature camera.

This will allow officers of the intelligence agency to not only track these weapons to their destination but more importantly will soon get the real mastermind behind these finds.

This will allow them to build a solid “bullet proof” case, complete with voice recording, video images, shipping details, items shipped, which would make it difficult for our skilled lawyers to get him/her off that case.

The only way I see for us to tame this monster is with the use of technology, we can no longer can we rely on eyewitness accounts to solve a transnational problem.

We have some top notch lawyers in Jamaica who can run rings around the local cops who lacks the investigative and evidence gathering skills and well as knowledge of the laws.

We do not have a system in place in Jamaica, which forbids the use of funds from the proceeds of crime to pay lawyers, and as such Mr. Biggs will splash down millions on millions to ensure he never spends a day in jail.

With so many lawyers being a part of government and with our close proxity to the USA, you would have thought we would have enacted such laws, where the accused has to prove the source of funds (SOF) for his criminal trial is not tainted.

Well think again, what happens when these politicians are kicked out of parliament, where do they go, well , straight back to their law offices where they can continue to rake in millions while keeping many of the purveyors of death on the streets.

Folks its no coincidence that we do not have “biting” laws in this country that works, its all a part of the design to ensure that those who seek to lead us can continue to live big, whether they are in or out of office.


Shock and Awe


Our Minister of National Security as well as our commissioner(s) of police I find spend too much time talking about what they plan or don’t plan to do, rather than just doing what they actually planned to do.

Appearing on National television to announce a crime fighting plan or strategy is plain NONSENSE and partly the reason why every last one of these strategies ALWAYS (barring none) as ended in abject failure.

How often have we heard  ” We will be flooding the communities with police and soldiers and will not leave until we root out these criminal elements”?

Months later you hear of the situation like what happened on Friday, August 13, 2010 in Tregedar Park and ask, Hey when did the security forces leave”? Did they ever flush out the criminals, get them arrested and charged and seized the guns?

How can Jamaicans be satisfied with the half hearted approach to crime fighting from our leaders, and not take steps to demand performance.

Shock and Awe in my mind comes about after the intelligence gathering has been completed and during this process the army, a special tactical team supported by the paramilitary unit at Harmon Barracks complete decisive and multiple simultaneous raids driven by the intelligence that has been gathered.

Those targeted in his shock and awe campaign should include but not limited to politicians who have been fingered in or associated with illegal arms trade, the Mr. Biggs of Kingston and St Andrew, Montego Bay, Manchester, St Catherine and Spanish town.

These persons must be declared enemy of the state and special court convened to get them early trail. The legislative arm of the country would have already enacted the necessary laws that would make it extremely difficult if not impossible for local top notch lawyers to represent these guys unless then can prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that they are using is untainted money.

Immediately after the arrest the local law enforcement officials should move quickly to seize every single asset that have been previously identified as part of the intelligence gathering process, this will ensure that no lawyer can be given the authority while these guys are behind bars to move, transfer or dispose on any of their assets.

In tandem with the move, the intelligence until should seek to place a stop order at the ports of entry/exit to ensure that the others who may have escaped the dragnet cannot leave the country either via private airline or otherwise.

More to follow ….

  1. Anti gang legislation contains many of the proposals I made here.

  2. It seems I was on top of by game from back in 2010, with commentary like these.
    I wonder who was in power when this was written ?

  3. @ K Smtih,

    You may want to stop and think for a second and then read these two post. I know they are cerebral in nature, but you should still be able to understand where they are headed.
