    In Jamaica, NO, tell me it isn’t so, young men with guns, NO it cannot be.

    Jamaica, where laws are strictly enforced, where our leaders are moral, upstanding civil servants, where our residents have total utmost respect for their community, where a community board would never let dozens of homeless shelters pop up, where an area like South Jamaica, would never be turn into a ghetto battle field, where men do not hang out in front steps of apartment building, in front of delis and our upstanding citizens of their community.

    I am SHOCKED, I tell you, SHOCKED…………………………………..that it was only two.
