It's paramount that I shed some light on my problems.
I am a wannabe Jamaican-American citizen. I have been making an effort to establish myself on the island for the last 11 years by purchasing a beautiful property in Green Acres, St Catherine.
That's when the problems began. I had 10 home robberies, losing of millions of Jamaican dollars in value, coupled with more than US$500,000.
This year, I have suffered three robberies while paying a security company to watch my premises. The last robbery was on November 4 and the bandit had time to take out two windows from the wall and flee before the security company's staff arrived.
I haven't got any help from the Spanish Town police.
When I complained, one officer asked if I was dating the robbers and the rest had memory loss.
At one point, they had arrested someone and later released him based on chain-of-command orders.
I am tired and don't know where else to seek help. I left Jamaica 43 years ago and it's sad that I can't return home.
My financial loss is so great, I just need some light to be shed on my case.
I thought Jamaica was my home. In America, they call us 'foreigner' so where do we belong if our own country vandalises us so badly?
In the next few years, I will be retiring; being a social worker, I would love to give back to my homeland.
Now this gives me second thoughts.
