The Editor,

To be alive in Jamaica is like a miracle.
Life is becoming more uncertain in Jamaica now, more than ever. And the question that is so often times being asked is: "Who next?"

Jamaica is in a class by itself when it comes to chopping and stabbing people to death. Jamaica is in a class by itself, when it comes to kicking down people's door and murdering them like ferocious animals. Jamaica is in a class by itself, when it comes to using knives and machetes to butcher people, like animals to the slaughter.

Jamaica is being rated third as one of the most murderous countries in the world. (I read it in the foreign press some time ago). And I heard it being said that, the people that are mostly feared in this world are Jamaicans. And that goes for the warmongers who are bringing down our country and giving it a bad reputation.

The killing of a mother and her child, son or daughter, has become a norm in Jamaica. The killing of a woman by her spouse has become a habit in Jamaica. The slaughtering of tourists, visitors and business owners has become a regular practice in Jamaica.

It's being said that we must be careful with words — and should not use them to class or to belittle people. But how should we describe these dog-hearted criminals, who are slaughtering us — even in the most frightening ways? Even a little child?

These perverts, these hooligans, these dog-hearted monsters, should either be hanged by the neck, be given the death penalty — or be put before a firing squad and be wiped off from planet earth. They don't even respect the God who created them.
