Gunshots at Manning Cup match - Is it safe to play in Jamaica?
« on: September 19, 2007, 10:30:38 PM »
 
Shots fired at Manning Cup match in Arnett
published: Wednesday | September 19, 2007


Violence reared its ugly head in Arnett Gardens yesterday, forcing the abandonment of the Manning Cup match between Charlie Smith and Denham Town at the Tony Spaulding Sports Complex in St. Andrew.


During the half-time interval of the game, in which Charlie Smith was leading 5-0, a group of men was seen adjacent to the gym, near the main entrance to the compound.


The men suddenly bared handguns and started firing at each other, which sent a number of students and teachers scampering for cover.


They then fled the compound. However, when the shooting stopped, women were heard screaming, and a man was seen running towards the entrance with a little boy in his arms. However, up to press time, it was not known whether the boy had been shot.

JA have 3 mil plus people, murder rate abt 1,000 plus per year is similar to tnt murder rate based on murders per million people,also economic condition in tnt far better than that of JA,so if tnt was to be in JA situation our island could even be worst off than JA, keep in mind for an island with only one million plus people tnt is a world leader in many fields because of of our small population.....

Tony Spaulding Sports Complex is situated in an area known for gang activity. Surprised that they are still holding schoolboy football games in that area.

Forget press time, when shots started firing the journalist knew what time it was and got the f**k out of there...I sure he didnt go back and check  :rotfl:

I am not aware of any safe place in the caribbean. We have long lost our innocence. Rapes, kidnappings, armed robberies occur more and more frequently throughout the Caribbean. I was reading a Kittitian paper and was surprised that their nation of just a few thousands people is also struggling in the fight against violent crimes.

My initial question was just about football. In fact, that last gunfight in Jamaica came just a few months after a previous gang-related shooting around a soccer field. So, I would like to know if other Caribbean teams can safely play Jamaica in Jamaica.

On D block, u ever been to Ja?
Their population is just under 2.8 mil, a little more than twice ours of 1.3.

Our highest murder rate in history was last year 2006 with 368.
That is 28 people per 100,000 population (the statistic they use to compare places in the world.

Jamaica hit 1600 murders 2 years ago. That equates to 57 people per 100,000.

That is double the murder rate we have in T&T.
Just imagine that.
Last year people was killed like rain, T&T was on the verge of total anarchy...So imagine Jamaica.
This year they are on target for a 1600 again.

The press there even tried for a couple years to stop publishing murder figures in an attempt to somehow shield the public from the carnage, thinking that the reports fuelled more violence.

T&T is very bad, but nothing like Ja.

Imagine as a country Trinidad is known for carnival, and steelpan.

Ja is known for reggae, bob marley and badmanism.

Man, I was jez listening to this real audio choon by Chalkdust which gives some probable insights into the root cause of the problems in the West Indies.
Seriously, dem damn politicians doh want to focus their attention on what needs to be done to stop all this violence. they are doing nothing.
Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

I lived in yard for a short spell. crime in yard is concentrated to only small areas, primerily in kingston, these pockets of criminal activity in kingston does not affect the whole of Jamaica, mainly kingston, but in select areas such as east kingston , down town kingston , west kingston , st Andrew which is not really kingston geographically but it's considered to be kingston, in comparison to T&T it would be like POS and barataria. but these little areas is where most of the criminal activities are perpetrated. a lot of Jamaica's murders are as a result of  political strife. only  about 40% of murders are actually of a non political nature. but when i was there you had to be very careful of where you go especially at night.

 one thing i could say about that place, there is no law and order whatsoever, it's  the most worthless police force in the world IMO, the police are rotten to the fackin core and it's nothing for them to kill a decent law abiding citizen for no reason at all. that place is a facking mad house if you ask me, and it's the politicians to blame. that country need's a serious coup or a divine intevention. BC of these crooked politicians and law men, i fear that Jamaica would not know peace unless they clean up their police force, and the politicians have to come to some sort of amickable agreement to work together to clean up the mess they themselves created over the years, but until then is chaos.

 trini on the other hand don't have that callousness as of yet BC it's just taking root, remember when we was enjoying peace and safety Jamaica was going at it hard. but if we don't clean up our police force and start getting serious with criminals of all sort, we might end up worst than Jamaica. remember this , our politicians are just as corrupt, the only difference is , we don't tout the gang leaders to do our dirty work in order to stay in political power. lets hope and pray that doesn't happen.                                        positive.
