Taking back Jamaica

Published:Tuesday | January 10, 2017 | 12:00 AM


I can understand why, at the start of a new year, there have been so many calls for the Government to come up with a solution to Jamaica's crime problem. At the start of a year, we, as humans, normally try to get control of our lives. Sometimes, we pledge to lose weight. Other times, we decide that we will quit smoking. This year, by the looks of it, it appears that we have decided that we will call for a lowering of our crime rate. This is wonderful, providing we stick to it. Will we still be as animated about our crime problem in June? What about September? We need to ensure that we put action to words. Let 2017 be the year we the people of Jamaica decide that enough is enough and take back our country from criminals! It can be done. Let us do it!
