The number one problem in most countries across the world is that of fighting crime. It is like a cancer and like cancer we can’t seem to find the cure. We are now in the month of August and in Jamaica the number of people murdered since the start of the year is over six hundred. People ask what is The Government doing. Here in New York City gun crime is at a high and people ask what is the Mayor doing.

Ironically people do not seem to understand that maintaining a crime free society is not just the job of The Government or the Mayor, we all have a part to play. How much are we as citizens are doing to raise children who will not one day become a menace to society. Most of these criminals come from a home. Some have mothers, brothers, sisters, girlfriends and wives who are aware that they have guns and are involved in criminal activities. In certain communities people know those among them who are involved in criminal activities so why is no one doing anything.

People cannot continue to shield criminals, wash the bloody clothes, lie for them and enable them to continue in a life of crime. Those who do are no better than the criminals. Parents must take their responsibility of parenting more seriously. Many of these criminals are products of poor parenting. Instill values in children, encourage them not to join gangs and to respect people’s lives and property. The fight against crime should not rest solely on The Government or The Mayor. It should begin with us.
