Fight back against killers

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE ED­I­TOR, Sir: THIS TSUNAMI of homi­ci­dal in­cli­na­tion has now over­come and flooded our homes with grief all across the na­tion.

The re­cent killing of a school­boy for his watch and phone can only be ar­tic­u­lated as an act of de­prav­ity. All at­tempts by well rea­son­ing Jamaicans must be made to de­ter it from be­com­ing an ac­cept­able re­al­ity. Re­gret­tably, a young and bright life was lost in an act so unimag­in­able, un­ex­plain­able and de­spi­ca­ble.

Let us as a peo­ple re­deem our­selves. So­ci­ety’s as­sailants must be stopped. We must fight back. One too many lives are be­ing lost by these de­praved acts.

One hopes that the of­fender will not present a de­fence that in­sults the very na­ture of com­mon sense. CHRIS BROWN christo­pher­stp.brown@gmail.com
