Men under threat - The Promise, The Perpetrator, The Plundered

Published: Sunday | December 6, 2009

It is a truism often repeated but it is worth repeating time and again - Jamaican men are fast becoming an endangered species.

Between January 1 and November 30, almost 1,230 men were murdered across the island, and this does not include those killed by members of the security forces.

In fact, the latest figure released by the police show 1,504 persons killed, with 1,275, or almost 85 per cent, being men.

Last month, 118 males were murdered while a further 19 were killed by the police, some in questionable circumstances that residents claim were extrajudicial killings.

Checks by The Sunday Gleaner have shown that neither age nor geography made a difference in the month, as the victims in November included 12-year-old Anthony Durant, who was killed in Portland, and 93-year-old Albert Milliner, murdered in St Thomas.

Almost every other parish lost two or more men to crime during the month.

Men, though dying in large numbers, continue to hold key leadership positions in the private and public sectors. Equally, men, many in the 15-25 age group, are over-represented among persons involved in criminal activity.

To underscore the clear and present danger facing the country, The Sunday Gleaner presents a compilation of the Constabulary Communication Network's (CCN) releases on the males killed in November. The listing reflects the date of the CCN release and the places where the killings took place.
