Get your act together, Jack
THIS is an open letter to Jack Warner. Sir, what is really going on with you? What is your agenda? I guess any publicity is good publicity for you. I don't understand you at all. Do you think before you open your mouth?
You didn't want the police to report the crime statistics and now you are sorry? Mr Warner, the report reached BBC, Washington Post, ABC News, Fox News and counting in a flash. What is a PNM murder? What is a UNC murder? Please explain those terms to me, a grassroots woman, because I am not sure what they mean, I never heard of them in my life.
You need to get your act together. I understand your point of not wanting one area to be seen as a crime hotspot.
But putting police on every corner in that area where many angels fear to tread is not solving crime. Those young black men need to give up their guns and seek a better lifestyle. They shouldn't just be given any job on a silver platter. They need to go out and learn a skill or a trade.
Many of these young men have no ambition, they live fast, smoke weed, die young, harass people's young daughters, get them pregnant and then are on to the next available woman.
Also, during the State of Emergency, why weren't the big drug lords and mafia men captured? No one knows who the big fishes are? Yeah right.
I know that there is no need to sensationalise crime in one place but in no way should the media be muzzled. I am already imagining the themes for ole mas for 2K13 Carnival.
