When was the LAST TIME you called a MEETING with REPRESENTATIVES of ALL STAKE-HOLDINGS in JAMAICA to resolve this Crime issue?
Those would be,
LAW ENFORCERS from the rank of Commissioner down.
and even some of the Men you have locked up in PRISON.
BEFORE it was announced that MOCA would be formed, I would wake up to LOUD EXPLOSIONS which I would later learn were Shots from HIGH POWERED WEAPONS and see the headlines that somebody was murdered ,,,,
I had done some Ghetto Investigations and came to a few conclusions.
1. We NEEDED to stop the Lotto Scamming
2. We NEEDED to get the GUNS out of the hands of the youth
who bought guns as soon as they got their first scam money.
I posited HERE in this VERY SOCIAL MEDIA SPACE that we could NOT do it in a SINGLE FACETED way and we HAD to be CAUTIOUS in OUR APPROACH.
First I suggested that we MUST embark on a SERIOUS PRESS BLITZ of a PUBLIC EDUCATION CAMPAIGN teaching people about the PITFALLS and other DANGERS of engaging in SCAMMING or other illegal activity. (Making that SACRIFICE even for a YEAR or TWO until)
Secondly, USE the MONEY, WE BORROWED, to INVEST in EMPLOYMENT ACTIVITIES and not just JEEP-LIKE BS, GET the YOUTH GAINFULLY EMPLOYED in what would have been MORE LUCRATIVE than any form of scamming (even while we sweetened that deal we would have been taking the Guns from them with LIMITED Casualties)(making that sacrifice)
Thirdly, offer incentives and AMNESTIES to have them Give up the guns.
THEN when we saw that we HAD ENGAGED them , we would have implemented a STRATEGY to SLOW down then EVENTUALLY STOP the SCAMMING.
ONLY THIS WAY WOULD WE HAVE PREVENTED SO MANY MURDERS.
However, I am no PHD nor have I PROVEN that I am any Financial Wiz so instead of taking my suggestions which they SAW, they chose to ride my FB PAGE everyday and sit and chat CRAP (oh I wish I could curse) among each other looking for things to CRITICIZE instead of CONSTRUCT from.
I am sure someone is making a KILLING off all these killings, so they continue to sit by and count the bodies piling up.
I am out.
