I'll shoot first or join in vigilante justice as I see fit until the leaders of this beautiful country do something meaningful to address the rising crime situation here!

Archie I so agree with you I said prayer is not enough and what you said was totally spot on about everything and I do not believe in the death penalty but these people are monsters.
I don't know where you got the idea I am a Christian who prayers and does nothing and wants nothing but to cleanse the sinners heart....that cannot be done action has to be taken did you not read the petition and what it is asking for.

Archie I so agree with you I said prayer is not enough and what you said was totally spot on about everything and I do not believe in the death penalty but these people are monsters.
I don't know where you got the idea I am a Christian who prayers and does nothing and wants nothing but to cleanse the sinners heart....that cannot be done action has to be taken did you not read the petition and what it is asking for. Us the people need to take back our own country as the gov't will do not squat unless they are embarrassed, Internationally, lose Tourism, and put a stop to ignoring human rights.
Just mek me get 25000 and more signatures and I will go to my contacts in US and UK media...all of FB will be aware as friends from all over the world are signing.

Archie I respect every word you are saying I am going home too.

We need publicity, a forum and representation and the government has to do something they never ever did ACT AS ONE NOT BY PARTY PURE FOOLISHNESS DAT!
I WANT MY ISLAND PARADISE BACK NOT TO END UP LIKE HAITI OR OTHER OBLITERATED COUNTRIES DUE TO PEOPLE NOT TAKING A STANCE...PRAY FOR JAMAICA IS A SLOGAN IT GOES ALONG WITH ACTION AND ONCE YOU SIGN UP A MARLEY VIDEO APPEARS...

I TOO AGREE WITH THE CHURCH PEOPLE SCENARIO THEY HAVE MADE JAMROCK A CESSPOOL BY NOT DOING ANYTHING AT ALL AND LETTING THEIR PASTORS TELL THEM WHOM TO VOTE FOR. THIS HAS TO CHANGE...I AM ON YOUR SIDE ARCHIE...I THOUGHT YOU WERE ONE OF THE NONCOMMITTAL CHRISTIANS WHICH IS WHY I SAID WHAT I DID I DID NOT MEAN TO OFFEND YOU.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AND INVITE 25 PEOPLE EACH AND EVERY DAY IF YOU CAN.

TO ALL THE CHRISTIANS OUT THERE THE LORD CANNOT DO THIS BY HIMSELF WE NEED TO HELP HIM DO HIS WORK BY ACTIONS NOT JUST PRAYERS...AS THE CRIMINAL MIND CANNOT BE TURNED ABOUT OR GIVEN REDEMPTION..THESE ARE SICK NONEMOTIONAL CRAZY PEOPLE WHO DO NOT NEED PRAYER OR PITY THEY NEED PUNISHMENT.

AND WHO SUFFERS THE MOST FOR ALL THIS OUR CHILDREN...

ARCHIE I COMMEND YOU FOR GOING BACK HOME FROM FOREIGN IT WAS A BRAVE WONDERFUL THING TO DO...THAT IS WHAT DEBRA WANTS TO HER COUNTRY BACK AND ALIVE AGAIN.

PLEASE TAKE HEED TO WHAT ARCHIE HAS SAID,...BUT SIGN AND INVITE AND PRAY TOO BUT ACTION IS THE KEY WORD HERE. THESE SICK PEOPLE COMMITTING THESE CRIMES CANNOT BE GIVEN REDEMPTION AS THEY DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT THE WORD MEANS. THEY HAVE NO EMOTIONS, NO BELIEF IN GOD OR JAH, NO LOVE IN THEM THEY CANNOT BE SAVED PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS..

BLESS YOU ARCHIE...KEEP AND STAY SAFE...X

For your information Mr. Watts Archie and I had a private conversation about this and we got along just fine we understand one another and I was not being condescending to him. It was very congenial. As for you, do nothing am use to those with your attitude that rather sit back and do nothing just criticise. I would not even cared if you signed as you are rather artificial and a bully yourself. Rude and crass to, not exactly representing whom we want on the petition. So see ya Errol in a next lifetime. Umoja! Means Unity in Swahili.....

I think this is a great cause. The only thing I don't agree with is hangings. I don't believe in the death penalty. The U.S. has the death penalty and hasn't change the crime rate one iota. There are 2.3 million people presently in U.S. prisons that prove that the death penalty is not a deterrent against crime. The solutions can't be just about punishment. Education, jobs etc will help reduce crime, particularly with young people.

Sharon I feel the same way you do, however many of mates feel by bringing back hanging it might help but an end to some of the bizarre and horrible things happening in Jamaica. I do disagree. Albeit, these people and teens many of them cannot be taught as they have no conscience, emotions or know what love is. I believe in Teach one Reach One but it does not work in every situation, I truly do not know what the answer is maybe tanks on the streets for a while with a curfew....but no...

There are too many children being abused sexually and physically along with woman and man.
That is a scar for life...
Hope you signed the petition and are recruiting family and friends as many as possible. Also do not forget your twibbon...1Love and Bless...

Yes, I did sign the petiton. All children are born with a clean slate. So if they have not learned to have empathy for others, then you need to look to the caregivers. The problem may be that the caregivers were raised the same way and do not have the proper skills themselves to teach the children proper social behaviour. These chiidren then become teenagers and then young adults with anti-social behaviour. These problems are generational and will continue unless the social issues that...

These chiidren then become teenagers and then young adults with anti-social behaviour. These problems are generational and will continue unless the social issues that are causing them are dealt wiht. Poor education, lack of jobs, lack of extracurricular activities to keep the kids occupied and stimulated, which in turn keeps them out of trouble. Never ending poverty which leads to feelings of hopelessness, frustration, anger, resentment etc. etc. Showing aggression by the use of tanks will inevitably cause more violence, which is what you want to avoid. As for hanging young people the idea to me is repulsive and contradicts the idea of reducing violence. Meeting out violence for violence I don't believe is the answer.

Yes they have infiltrated the entire Caribbean. However this is a much more personal matter having to do with us Jamaicans not politricks,,,'

Handel Daddy-Mystro McNeish

We ALL agree that something has to done to restore SANITY and more peaceful living in JAMAICA! But I don't think HANGING has to be re-instituted! Had a DEEP conversation with my best friend recently and we concluded that Jamaica has lost a generation or two, and the problem has to be ADDRESSED from a much younger age, say from around 5-6 yrs old, to CONSCIOUSLY INSTILL VALUES in them! It seems that a segment of the Jamaican populace, has sunken into SAVAGERY! SO, SO, SAD! JAH, help my likkle island!

Blessed love to you all.....

Tracey, it's so SAD you'd have to ask that question, eeh? One would think that responsibility would AUTOMATICALLY fall on the adults! Ironically, many of these adults are not even EQUIPPED to do so. It's a SAD, SAD, situation!!!! It seems like a DIRE situation, but between the parents, well meaning adults, school system and law enforcement, something MUST be done!!!!

1. Lack of capital punishment emboldens the thug.
2. Where are the parents? Remember the days when parents would clap you upside the head, in public or in private, if you acted untoward? When youngsters were not even allowed to be around adult conversation? WHERE ARE THE PARENTS?

FB CAN BE BOTHERSOME I AM WELL AWARE OF THAT. HENCE CLOSED WALLS LEAVES LESS SOCIAL INTERACTION AND THAT IS BASICALLY WHAT ITS PURPOSE IS.

THIS PETITION IS OF THE UTMOST URGENCY AND I THINK WE CAN OBTAIN WELL OVER THE AMOUNT OF SIGNATURES WE ARE AIMING FOR THE MORE THE BETTER.

PASSIVE RESISTANCE MAY WORK. NO NEED TO BRING IN OTHER COUNTRIES THIS IS OUR PROBLEM AND WE MUST BE TALLAWAH AS WE ARE KNOWN TO BE. JUST MAKE IT UP IN YOUR MIND THAT THIS MAY BE DONE, EVEN SOONER THAN LATER. WE JUST HAVE TO PUT OUR HEADS TOGETHER, REFLECT, PRAY AND HUSTLE TO GET SIGNATURES ON THE PETITION.
HAVING SOME CONTACTS IN MEDIA HERE, WE MAY FORCE THE GOVERNMENT OF JAMAICA TO FINALLY TAKE A STANCE AND SUPPORT ITS PEOPLE FOR A CHANGE.

AS I ORIGINALLY SAID THIS IS NOT A MATTER OF POLITRICKS OR PARTY LINES, RATHER ALL WORKING TOGETHER AS HUMAN BEINGS TO SOLVE A CONTENTIOUS, HORRIFIC SITUATION WE HAVE LET THE COUNTRY PUT OURSELVES IN FOR NOT SPEAKING UP AS A WHOLE...NO MATTER IF YOUR EITHER PARTY THAT IS NOT OF IMPORTANCE, OUR CHILDREN AND LIFESTYLES ARE.

SO PLEASE LET US PRAY, SIGN AND INVITE FOR THE GOOD OF JAMAICA!

I THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME,
