More Guns And Ammo Found At The Wharves…

The Jamaica Constabulary is report­ing anoth­er major gun and ammu­ni­tion find, once again com­ing through the ports.
According to the Police, 19 firearms, includ­ing six high pow­ered rifles, and just over 470 assort­ed rounds of ammu­ni­tion have been seized.

The police report­ed that the find was made at the wharf in St James on Monday, January 12th. We con­grat­u­late the police on the find, even as we are left won­der­ing about the inves­tiga­tive tech­niques the police con­tin­ue to use in try­ing to root out those responsible?
They report­ed that the
They say a major mul­ti-agency inves­ti­ga­tion is now under­way as inves­ti­ga­tors seek to iden­ti­fy the indi­vid­u­als responsible.
However, we are left won­der­ing at the wis­dom of reveal­ing the find when the inves­ti­ga­tions are still underway?
It seems that announc­ing the find and sub­se­quent inves­ti­ga­tions, helps those respon­si­ble to take cov­er, rather than it helps the investigations.

The Jamaican Government must demand that the United States Administration takes the influx of guns into Jamaica as seri­ous­ly as the United States took Ganga arriv­ing in the United States from as far back as the 1980s.
The American Government was not shy about seiz­ing Ar-Jamaica planes on which Ganga was found. Those planes were not released to Air Jamaica until the humungous fines the Americans levied were paid.
No coun­try, Jamaica includ­ed, should sur­ren­der its dig­ni­ty on the altar of expe­di­en­cy, or affil­i­a­tions. Jamaica must demand to be treat­ed like a sov­er­eign nation, the lack of size or the fact that Jamaica bor­rows like oth­er actions do not mean sur­ren­der­ing its autonomy.
The American Government is no more respon­si­ble for the guns enter­ing Jamaica, than Jamaica was for the Ganga enter­ing the United States.
Notwithstanding, the National air­line, and, by exten­sion, the Jamaican tax­pay­ers paid a hefty price; those fines no doubt [helped] force the air­line into its demise.
