Help! Too many murders

Friday, May 19 2017

THE EDITOR: Where is the outcry from Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley and National Security Minister Edmund Dillon about the outrageously high number of murders every single day in this small country? The murder rate has long surpassed the number of days in the year so far and I canít believe the seemingly uncaring attitude of the people who are supposed to be protecting the citizens of this nation.

Please, Mr Prime Minister, get up and do something. In a civilized country this would not be tolerated and people responsible would have long been fired.

This is not a country anymore but a slaughter house where everyone lives in fear. How can we call ourselves civilized or leaders and watch these young men brutally murder each other and other people with impunity? It is quite clear that the Ministry of National Security and the Police Service are not up to the task of stemming the killings, not to mention improving the poor detection rate.

I call on the Prime Minister to seek help from other countries (England, US) that can seriously do the work that needs to be done to combat these gruesome killings. How long is the PM going to allow the slaughter to continue? How many more citizens must die? We are too small in population and size to accept so many murders.

Mr PM, stop trying to pacify the citizens with lip service and actually start doing something, Bring in help, we need it.
