September–let’s remember: Close to seven

It’s a stretch to say that the time is nigh. Night draws in. It’s close to 7. Jamaica is looking into a dark tunnel that has been dub by crime, and whose dirt has never been properly cleared away. The tunnel looks like it may soon cave it. But, will it happen because eyes have been wide shut for too long? Will it be because hands tied behind their backs have been the MO of our police force?

When politicians only talk about priorities but never do things to make those real, it cannot end well. Check my blog post from today, Crime in Jamaica: A visit to the Twilight Zone.
