Enough is enough!

Extraordinary problems require extraordinary solutions. I suggest that in order to help tame or defeat the murder monster in our nation, the government should issue a call to all murderers to turn themselves in, confess, and get a chance at making a plea bargain, within a certain time frame, failing which the police and army will take a zero-mercy approach to ensuring they will be permanently incapacitated from 'plying their bloody, cold-blooded and brutal trade'.

Those, who, turn themselves in and, who, confess, could be given a reduced sentence. Another 'no questions asked' gun amnesty should be organised for a set period of time. The year 2017 and, thus far, 2018, murder rates, for Jamaica, were/are embarrassingly and outrageously high.

Why should any well-thinking Canadians, Americans and English people want to come here, for their vacations, when they have the wherewithal to visit safer and secure countries?
