wow! MADNESS!! The rum drinking start early this year?
Two armed robberies in as much nights? Gun rentals? Crime crime crime. the Jamaicans crime and gun culture is here upon us and is growing more brazen by the day. It’s only time before they move on to the coastal areas where the tourists play. After Irma and Maria all we need is one tourist shooting and its goodbye for our main revenue earner. Fire the incompetent commissioner and the AG please mr PM. We are competing with the jamaica for being the Crime power house in the Caribbean. Please take us out of our misery before its too late.
This doesn’t Sound like a “normal” robbery. This is like the days when wanton violence against the poor was used in Jamaica to destabilize the country.
Police, please do us a favour — find ALL the gunmen and bring them in NOW — DEAD OR ALIVE!
thanks Jamaica keep them coming
I am antiguan and i find it very unfair for you guys always putting the blame on jamaicans or the foreigners as we call them and forget we have them in our own backyard the antiguans broad daylight two antiguans try to rob a supermarket in potters people see them and they were caught please tek the yampe out of our eye first before we start these accusations, just like the attorney general making accusation against the opposition of the bomb threat again get the facts, antiguans been doing alot of stupidness and we blaming foreigners, not saying jamaicans,guyanese, dominicans,Spanish dont do things they do alot alot but as soon as a robbery or a shooting we say its a jamaican they are human beings just like us antiguans they are good and bad all over the world.have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed 2018.
they will be caught. ..who steal phones yout will be tracked …..then some one innocent can get jail time …
Something wrong with some of you people. People getting robbed and y’all worried about rum drinking? Isn’t anyone suppose to have a good time without being threatened? I see no shake from the police force I swear they just stand on the side of the roads and harass people to stop their cars which makes no sense. Get down into the nitty gritty parts of the island and handle the situation. Are y’all scared of getting shot? Cuz last time I checked y’all here to serve and protect…..
This country has an army and a police force and yet still the government isnt putting them in good use, they shoukd be collarborating today to fight crime, more patrols all over the island. The government has alot of vehicles so at least three police officers and three soldiers should be using pickups to patrols the streets ofmeach community everyday and night, they are getting paid by taxpayers who demand their service. Use unmarked vehicles, patrol the villages and beaches. Lazy ass security forces in Antigua, not even foot patrol they do, use plain clothes officers and soldiers to be around bars, hotels, beaches, hide in the dark even allu want to but do something to help fight crime, do frequent road blocks and search vehicles, nah man these people at the top can do better than that to help fight crimes and find criminals. This country also has ah set of lazy youths who find that security work dont pay enough so they rather sit and do nothing but crime when so many security companies on this island need workers. Antigua youths are too lazy and stop blaming foreigners when you all lazy kids are the ones doing the crimes. I am a Dominican and i say no Dominicans don’t come here and go around robbing people, we all work hard for our money to drink our rum except those that sit down by the market begging for money to buy rum, lol
