Mom of Smith Hill shooting victim to gunmen ‘Come to me and say sorry’


The mother of Jude Joseph, the 12-year-old boy who was shot by gunmen last Wednesday in Smith Hill, Carenage, is calling on the men who shot her son to come forward and apologise, and even assist her in taking care of the child who is still in critical condition.

Joseph’s mother, Camille, told Newsday the boy, while still critical, is responding more than before and is slowly showing signs of recovering. But she said even if he recovers from the shooting, he may suffer permanent damage.

“A lot of vital organs were damaged,” Camille said. “His urinal tract and his pancreas were seriously damaged. That gunman has to come to me and apologise to me and do something for my son. Even if he gets arrested that won’t do anything for my son. He is lying in a hospital bed fighting for his life now, and if he survives, his life would never be the same.”

Why don't you add every murder for June to your last end of month figure and see what you get,it would even be less! That's what you get for being so depraved hoping for the worst..

Murders to date 211.


Plus ?

Police statistics report a total of 167 murders for the period January to April.

De ex-con death announcement on the newspaper hours now and this dutty murder count ain't update yet?

Ask him why he prefer leave 12 than to add the new one,maybe it's because he'll be further exposed and have to make the twelve into nine,so what he'll do now is wait for it to reach 12 and then post his best '13th' murder for June,but at this rate he will have to wait till Wednesday Thursday,and then magically the thread will reappear again with 13 +..

NATIONAL Security Minister Stuart Young has accused the Opposition of a plot to promote xenophobia towards Venezuelan migrants.

He was responding to an urgent question in the House yesterday from Oropouche West MP Vidia Gayadeen-Gopeesingh on what measures had been implemented to address the increase in robberies involving Venezuelans.

Young replied: "There is a very disturbing occurrence from those members on the other side. There is no doubt in our minds whatsoever (that) what they are promoting is xenophobia."

He said yesterday morning in his meeting with the heads of national security he told them, "There is a specific plot by certain persons...."

Yes ass-tick..

ATTORNEY General Faris Al-Rawi says an increase in crime and murders has been reported due to this country's migration situation.


"It is a fact, having spoken with the Commissioner of Police today (Tuesday) that we have had a serious uptick in certain types of the crime as a result of immigrant issues.

The Commissioner can speak to that for himself. But suffice it to say that the numbers of murders have been noticed to have risen as a result of some our migration issues. I am not talking only about Venezuela, I am talking about other positions."


In Parliament on Monday National Security Minister Stuart Young said Venezuelan migrants were not the major source of crime and accused the Opposition of promoting xenophobia after asking questions about Venezuelans with HIV and malaria and about a reported increase in robberies involving Venezuelans.


That happens when yuh copy and paste like a silly whore..it was your opposition that made the accusations in the first place,the Minister was just doing his brand of opposing their xenophobia and mischievous agenda,clearly he didn't handle it too well and made a fool of himself and you,but you used to that I suppose.. ..

Full-circle is sooooo easy here..pity only Beatdball would see this because nobody cares about this thread.

To me, the JLP of Jamaica, is the only party in the Anglophone Caribbean that is getting it...litter free capital city, getting tough on vagrancy, professional law enforcement - cops & traffic agents; service oriented govt office workers - friendly with a 'can-do' attitude. That's the only way to modernity. Mih seh suh. But, of course, when the more socialist oriented party gets in power...these policies are never sustained. So, of course, the country doesnt gain grounds, but, just regresses back to bland socishitism. For there to be physical security, there has to be a holistic approach to law enforcement - enforce the laws on the books!

Amputee thrown out wheelchair robbed and beaten lives in fear

AN amputee who was thrown out of his wheelchair and beaten for hours with a cutlass by bandits at his Diamond Village, San Fernando home said he played dead in order to stay alive.

Kelvin John, 51, said the attack occurred in April and two months later, the police have not made any arrests, which leaves him worried that the bandits could return to finish what they started.

“They wanted me dead. I had no choice but to play dead because had I not done that, I would not be alive today and talking with you,” John said as he wiped away tears.

He said he remembers the ordeal as if it happened yesterday. "I lay on the ground, closed my eyes and did not move even as they continued beating me with the cutlass. I heard one of them say, 'he dead, leh we go fast (sic). They then ran out of the house."
