QUESTION - Now that the protest is over, what next should Jamaicans do to end violence against women and children?
People need to cooperate with the police and to stop turn a blind eye on crime. It is obvious that crime against women is on the loose, and at times, we are our worst enemy, as we side with corruption. We have to protect our women and children by reporting every incident of abuse, any level of intimidation and threat.
I would like to see the churches come out and talk more against violence against women and also fast and pray for it to stop, because people look up to church people. The community should also come together with the police and intensify community policing and the Neighbourhood Watch Programme.
We should lobby for the reinstatement of corporal punishment to include whipping. This would make these heartless persons think again as to the consequence of committing violence against women and girls.
I would love for Jamaicans to lobby for hanging to come back, so all those thinking about raping and beating girls and women would know that they would be hanged if they commit this act.
I think they should resume hanging in Jamaica, it will help. The man dem too wicked, dem fi dead.
