This is a question asked by many Jamaicans both local and abroad. One big example are the members of the police force and the Transport Authority have come under fire from a Senior Magistrate who has accused them of leaving the Half-Way-Tree commercial district to criminals.
|Senior Magistrate Glen Brown did not mince words Tuesday when he accused the Police and transport officials of allowing "rapists" masquerading as taxi operators to roam the streets in Half-Way-Tree.|
I fear especially for the school children. It was not like that when I was going to school in Jamaica. We had many people who looked out for us. Taxi drivers weren't trying to kidnap and rape you. I don't know all the recent event over the past years in Jamaica have made me sad. I know many people only want to hear or read (in this case) the good news, but unless people acknowledge the bad, then nothing will ever get done.
The most recent event was Omar Myers, who was charged by detectives from the Centre for the Investigation of Sexual Offenses and Child Abuse charged bus loader, Omar Myers, with assaulting a 15 year old girl. The student reported to the police that over the past several months, Mr. Myers had been making sexual advances at her and reportedly threw water in her face when she resisted in the Transport Center.
This was just ONE of the stories from this locality reported. According to the investigator, CISOCA is now probing several cases last month where women who boarded taxis in the busy commercial district were abducted and raped by criminals posing as cab drivers.
Why are people ABDUCTING, RAPING AND KILLING PEOPLE IN JAMAICA? This has GOT TO STOP!!
