May the opressed people of Jamaica stand up and declare freedom from any form of tyranny that befallls them. May the opressers recieve Compassion in their hearts and understand their power has with it a responsiblity to all. This is my wish, prayer, and hope. Hpe and faith combined with will can make it happen.

So go waste you time praying until a member of your family becomes a victim of the heinous crimes that are being committed with more frequency here. 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.....

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!

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?

I was called to pray for Jamaicain the mid 70-s and Jamaica is still the land I love. I still believe that the destiny of our country lies in the will of Christians and not in our political leaders. I still believe in 2 Chronislce 7:14 and try to practice it.

“…I WANT MY ISLAND PARADISE BACK NOT TO END UP LIKE HAITI OR OTHER OBLITERATED COUNTRIES DUE TO PEOPLE NOT TAKING A STANCE...”.— - Debra Banks

--I personally view Haiti as the “prototype” of what the neo-colons have in mind for all former and/or “current” colonies. It is also like, “cut the head off, and the rest is all helpless!” – We mustn't forget how HAITI once stood as the BEACON of “FREEDOM FOR ALL PEOPLES”, helping many nations obtain their freedom; even the great US-of-A benefited of the assistance of black soldiers from Haiti under French command on the side of the American revolutionaries. Haitians, who migrated in the south of the United States where blacks were still in bondage, were influential in the rebellion that brought about the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863. Now that Haiti has been brought to her knees, subdued and “conquered” by way of infiltration, deception and division, let no-one rejoice in her demise, nor pity her; au contraire, let’s unite and pray that heads of state and representatives of all neighboring nations in the Caribbean region become enlightened, form a unified front, and be embolden to offer a UNITED RESISTANCE to division, deceit, and the pressure exerted on them by neo-colons! - Prayers more mountains!

By no means, Debra! I am not at all offended! ...Communication is the best learning tool; and we both can learn from this exchange, :)! I will, further, say that our knowledge of/about something or someone often shapes our views and feelings about them! Please, you don’t have to apologize! I believe in the power of prayers of faith; I will join mine with yours, believing that before the return of Christ, the living God, all Caribbean countries will join force to defeat the force of evil...

By the way, I pray that the Lord restore your health promptly! …God bless you and yours!

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS THE JAMAICA, THE LAND WE CLAIM TO LOVE. FOR THE MOST PART IT HAS BEEN THE QUEST FOR POWER MASQUERADING AS PATRIOTISM; NOW THE PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING THE PANGS OF HELL! THIS IS A SPIRITUAL WARFARE SO LEADERS IN THE NATURAL WILL BE MAKING THE SAME BLUNDERS. THIS IS ALSO A PROCESS. IT TOOK YEARS OF BREAKDOWN, SO GUESS WHAT! THE RESULT WILL BE SEEN BY OUR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN BUT THE LONGEST JOURNEY BEGINS WITH ONE STEP; THEREFORE, LET US START STORMING THE CITADELS OF HEAVEN UNTIL WE MAKE A BREAKTHROUGH.
