  1. Don't young people know that there will know longer have a generation if you do not stop killing each other! Well if you do not know then I will tell you. you need to stop or else you will no longer hurt your enemies but hurt your brothers and sisters. And then will come your mother and father and your children. God created you on this earth to make more of your own kind and to love one another.

  3. Don't think its about Kenny. Its about our priority as people. If people are not divided by being for one or the other party then everybody would speaks to things that would generally affect us. We have tried everything from national consultations, enquires, killings, neibohood watches and have blamed everything from King, Kenny, Devil and even god.

    What if we insisted on everybody doing their job effectively. Having a good justice system sufficently staffed, crime lab so there is less reliance on eyewitnesses, properly managed police force and effective penal system (complete with counselling and rehabilitation). What if we allowed the politicians to do their jobs by finding investment opportunities to fund and implement all what i have mentioned. Would that be a solution? To the pessimistic people: have we ever tried this? I'll tell you one thing we would not be able to blame anyone but ourselves. So today let us insist on the government doing its job in order for us to do ours or else they will be redundant.

    • Say something about what? Kenny coming onthe radio/tv to talk about crime isn't going to change anything. Citizens telling what they know to the police will help reduce crime; keeping your young children off the streets will help reduce crime; you as parents doing your job AS PARENTS will help reduce crime. Stop blaming Kenny and the police for crime being comitted.

  6. All crime is crime. We should address criminality in high places too. What gives a white collar person more rights to commit crime than the average malaway? Is it because his crime is nicer, more lucrative, covered effectively and journalists are silenced? Crime in high places has the double impact of being transferred to the people at the bottom. Utility and Commercial entities taking unfair advantages of the malaway. The government then extorts the same people who elects it and impairs the people rights to justice by leaving the court office closed for half day and enabling incompetent officials. At least 1 person is dead from a gunshot has a calculation been done as to how many are dead as a result of VAT on medication & food?Isn't that CRIMINAL?

  12. where were all the police officers who usually patrol Chaussee Road (usually at least 6 at any one time)? Didn't they hear the gunshots to investigate what was happening?

    • What if they did? Would that have saved the victim from being shot and killed? Don't u think we need a state of emergency to give the police time to do house to house search and ride the country of all gangs and guns?
