Montague’s ‘chosen by God’ claim laughable

THE EDITOR, Sir:

An article in the Sunday Observer in which Bobby Montague claimed that he was chosen by God to tackle crime would be laughable if it were not so serious.

Montague uttered such rubbish after proclaiming that he did not want the job in the first place.

I have to wonder, however, if when he made mention of God he was referring to Andrew Holness, as many in the Jamaica Labour Party seem to think that the installment of Mr Holness is akin to the next coming of Christ.

It is a shame that God choose him for the position, but forgot to give him strong arms to tackle the job.

For Montague to even suggest such rubbish in the midst of the many lives that have been lost due to the upsurge of violence in Jamaica is truly heartbreaking and shows, in my opinion, the lack of respect and empathy for those who lost their families to crime and are still in mourning.
