things what I’m saying is what is the value what is the cost of reporting on
those things but veteran journalist and CEO of the Western mirror Lord B Smith
says what should be done is a rebranding of hoe Jamaica’s tourism sector is sold
to visitors and investors I think our tourist industry has made us a nation of
schizophrenics we are bipolar because on the one hand we want to kowtow to the
tourism industry because that’s what brings in the money yes but what about
the natives why are we afraid for example if there
are problems in the tourism sector why we are afraid to expose it but but but

  1. Keep on telling them what them put up cctv all over country and that will cut crime in jamaica have someone monitor the cctv 24 7 ..give the police more vehicles so them can catch the wicked criminal killing people and getting away with

  2. This is total nonsense not interested in the cost of we report things, it is utter nonsense this man is talking. We have a very very serious problem with crime in Jamaica, it is not negativity it is factual. I am surprised that the tourists industry is functioning as it is all throughout this high crime rate.

  3. Returning resident spend LOTS of money wen they return.
    Some, VIA their pension
    To my knowledge a total of 42 returning resident got killed in JA
    Between 2017-2018. 99% from England, now all that pension. "Money" stays in England no one gets it.
    Monies that would spend locally in JAMAICA. That Would boost the economy some..wat
    Let's average SAY 3000 pound a month × 42.
    Not to mention the many who got killed in the past.
    We could easily do 1million pound a month.
    But you knw who is LAUGHING?
    THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT OF COURSE! they dont have to pay that money out anymore.
    Those big guns wah unnu gi di "SATAN" dem really works.
    Now even the babes has to cry..out for help, wen they should be in school.
    OH' sorry we tried our best.
    Well buy the guns from these CRIMINALS & destroy them.

    Well good idea, but we dont have the money! Knowing we would have to pay them well.
    Ok' propose it to the general public wat your intentions are, also to 'parliament'
    an other necessary branch of GOV.
    Then make a vote on it, and let's see what happen.
    The vote would be to raise taxes for a while, so we can "allocate" the money to address such matter!
    I think the public would go for it,

  4. So MR Chuck i have traveled for the last 20 years move from part of the island to another . How will i set up accounts etc. When no one truly knows me.

  5. That's mean the j p must know the old Jamaica for him 2sing that makes no sense mr government look at what you are doing 2the people country

  6. This whole entire JP referencing system needs to be disbanded because I do not personally know any justice of the peace and I don't go to church and I do not have a personal doctor I don't get sick like that so no I don't have a personal doctor I it's really hard to conduct business in Jamaica because all of these requirements are ridiculous if I bring my passport obviously there is a process that you go through in order to get the passport so why do I need a justice of the peace or a notary public why

  7. If the media stop reporting the murders in Jamaica the government will not do anything about the current murder crisis on the island are u going the wait until there is a high rate of tourist murder then do something about it since the tourist industry doesn't want the media to report the crime situation invest in fighting of crimes with the billions of US dollars you all are making annually

  8. foreign government should not invest in jamaican government unless shown what there money is spent on to develop the country because they have no morals are value to the people of there country not even taxpayers have a say of what Goes on in this Country police should be payed very well because there job is very risky there health should be check up regular police Gear and Uniform should be upgraded Yearly for comfort and to protect them from criminals so they can't imitate police officers



  11. So if the police is working in bad condition can you Imagine the condition the Prisoners or in the JLP is perfect for Economic Growth but when it comes to Human rights and protection of citizens the JLP doesn’t care about anything els just Growth from JLP comes in power the most people die in Jamaica but every one would say the JLP is good for Jamaica but no it not because of Corruption and every side we need to have a Minimum wage that encourages everyone to work it is way too low and that is one of the reason y crime is so high So much returning residents and people who is working so hard last there lives because of growth we care about Tourism and Chinese investors more then any Jamaican Citizen

  12. Go suck oun mother a the same thing two blood klatt j.p do to me . and my blood klatt case a run almost three years…. A hate oun a who say a two year a case if try …

  13. Some of these JP's are even asking for money in order to sign your documents. There was a time when JP's would walk there communities and interact with the residents, that has stop and when you visit their office they're telling you that they don't know you.

  14. The United States ambassador to Jamaica should be barred from the country, she is very, very rude. Her job is to issues visas not to interfering in the country personal business, how she is going to tell Jamaica corruption. While the United States is committed the corrupted government in the world, their President is trying for impeachment. For trying to bribes foreign country to investigated one of the candidate, who is running for the president.
    That ambassador must remember that the most guns crimes is committed in the United States everyday,she needs to sent back to the United States. She is very, very much rude, she is using tatics about corruption to interfering with Jamaica business.
    Only because she knows that the Jamaican government is very weak, because the politicians does not want their visas to be taken away.
    So they are afraid to asked Washington to take her back home, and warned the United States embassy workers to stayed out of Jamaica private business.
    Because Jamaica is a very much a sovereign country ,it is not one of the state of the United States.
    Where Washington having any form of jurisdictions over it,so if she wants to remain in the country.
    She needs to shut her mouth, or else she will be sent back. The government of Jamaica must tell Washington that the country has been sending our resources there ,from 1958 to help built their economic growth also development.
    So they owned Jamaica a lot, also our lime stones from Rock Fort plant been going to the United States. Where they used to build houses, and other buildings with. Because they used it to make sheetrock, which they used on the inside of the buildings.
    The ambassador to Jamaica is very, very rude, the government does cares about black who was not born in the United States more than the ordinary. So she must not come to Jamaica trying to pour out her frustration on the people, her job is to run the embassy and .Not to interfering with Jamaica business as usual, they are using their bullism on every country they entered. It is full time that the government of Jamaica must put a stopping to it, Jamaica is just 550 miles from the United States. Based on geography Jamaican shouldn't need a visa to enter the country, because Jamaica is north America continent just like the United States. I want to know with all the educated people in Jamaica, also the United States. They does not know that there is no country named America,it is a continent. Where there are two continent north,and South Americas.

  15. Listening to Delroy Chuck about that the police officers is signing blank forms,he does not understand the intricacies about police works. When they are doing a road traffic duty, where they are going to get JPS those ours of the day to be with the team. He is so fool,fool,I hope the next election, that fool would not be in office. Just like how he was blaming the police officers for arresting his thieving labourites minister of education Ruel Reid and companies. For stealing the education taxes money for the poor people in general children, a man like Delroy Chuck is not fit to served the public at all. Because he is condoning with thieves to poor people in general, out of their education,it is full time to go.

  16. I am asking Dr Fenton whatever he want to named,what happened to those land leased that PNP party government gave to the people. I know a certain JLP party government minister who was MP in St,Thomas during the 1980s, he did want to take away the land from the people. I guessed he should asked that former minister JLP MP,about the land grabbing he did .When his government was in power, and he trying to take away all those land. He should checked on him ,and see how many actres of land he took. Then he could distributed it amongst the other farmers who was robbed, by that MP he knows himself.
