  1. Police cant help bad parenting from the family unit come everybody g@n boys, corrupt politicians, police even the taxi man that choose to over charge a customer…we have bad family value

  2. To get rid of the criminal in Jamaica you have to lock up the women them because is their son, their nephew,,their brother or their man the women them know but the political parties don’t have the will because they are the ones that start getting their supporters guns

    1. Not really, that’s the style international journalists have too. He’s driving home a point….that she was defenseless.

  3. Very sorry for this very tragic and terrible loss of a bright life ahead , this seems to be a constant pattern . I have been a gun victim myself , I very nearly ended up in a similar situation . Water is such a scarce commodity in Jamaica so why did the reporter let the tap run .

  4. I have so many questions. If the killing was done in open view for every one to see. Why aren’t there witnesses identifying the individual? Secondly, if the accused is known to the young lady and there is picture evidence. Why isn’t the public made aware of what this individual looks like so that they can do their due diligence in reporting the matter? Thirdly, mommy I understand the discourse around this individual being your “belly pain” and all the semantics around it but are you waiting for him to kill you before you call a spade a spade?
    When will it end?
    There are so many things to unpack from this little clip.
    Why the continued animosity? What is the root cause of this violence? Are these individuals innately crimogenic? Are they just a product of their environment? Is it a nature bs nurture component?
    No sah. Bun dung it claat. Bun eh dung. Unno caan a gwaan so!

  5. What tough measures is expected.
    Police can’t lock them
    Police can’t chase them
    Police can’t shoot can’t them
    Anything that the police do they are going to have some politician, some group somebody is going to take issue with what is done

  6. Tear down the zinc fences…a few years ago they blew up ghetto buildings in Newark NJ and that made a difference so that the criminal element could be exposed..they replaced those buildings with family homes.

  7. THE YOUNG IN JAMAICA DO NOT LIVE LONG! MURDER IS JUST TO MUCH! SO SORRY
    FOR HER FAMILY! CITIZEN’S MURDERING! POLICE MURDERING!
    THERE JUST CANT BE ANY PEACE!! SHEER HELL!!
