Well, this has finally boiled down to the ‘straw that broke the camel’s back.
Jamaica in a state of anarchy and under curfew. I did not believe that I would ever live to see that in my life-time. It just goes to show that one cannot really predict what event can catapult a country and cause it to be in the state as Jamaica currently is.
I find it even offensive that some of the news courage of Jamaica is calling the sections of the country as ‘slum’. that is the level at which the international world is now seeing the country.
Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke as bring together a section of the community that would never have come together before. His problems with the US has caused gangs to unite in a manner that has never before seen in the country, and it makes one wonder what could Mr Coke has that is so important to these individuals that they are more than willing to lay down their very life to protect him.
It is commendable that the Jamaican government and it’s arm forces are doing all they can to quell the level of violence that is gripping the country. However, they need to find ways of stopping people from seeing Mr Coke , as a God-like individual. Because until they do that country is heading for it’s darkest period in history.
The problem with the US, Dudus situation could have been dealt with differently and if Mr Golding had been honest and up front with parliament and the Jamaican people then maybe there would have been no need to have armed security personnel patrolling the streets of Jamaica.
From all the news report, I personally believe that the situation will get worse before it gets better and the only way that this feud between the security services and the gangs can be peacefully settled is for Mr Coke to do the decent thing and give himself up to the authority.
If he loves his country at all he must see that the current crisis have the potential to rip the country apart and caused the lost of many lives, he really need to put an end to this saga, he his the only person that has the ability to ensure that there is no more lost of life, due to him. If he’s as great as people make him out to be then he needs to stop thinking about himself and think of the greater good of the country.
