Six(6) year old Teonia Henry found dead on a plot of land that has been relegated to being used as a make shift latrine. Hands bound in front of her little six year old body, which had several stab wounds and might have been sexually assaulted, Teonia's lifeless body was discovered early Saturday morning.
In an unrelated incident, a taxi carrying passengers, allegedly bumped into a BMW X5 on Highland Drive in my community of Havendale. The driver of the BMW thought that the best way to handle the matter was to pull out his/her gun and shoot INTO the taxi. Seventeen years old, Khajeel Mais, an innocent passenger, who was on his way to a school fete at the Meadowbrook High School died at the Kingston Public Hospital while receiving treatment for a bullet to his head.
...And a family in Clarendon awakes to find a chilling note from thieves who entered their house by night. While the thieves made way with about $200,000 the firearm of the husband, who is a soldier and the family's passports what they left behind tells the tale of how different the family's fate could have been. Thinking that the husband was a police officers, the thieves explained how they could have killed the man but decided againt it.
This, folks, is the nation that prides itself as being a Christian nation. This is the Christian nation where marijuana cannot be dicriminalised (so that Rastafari can conduct their religious right in peace or the poor man can sell two spliff and make a money to feed himself and his family or a young professional like myself can enjoy a blunt just to hold a meditation [pon a level]). This the Christian nation where a young lady/man cannot get the freedom to engage in transactional sex to be able to subsist. This is the Christian nation where it is NOT ok for persons to express themselves freely especially when it does not fall into the acceptable constructs of gender performance. Thi is the Christian nation that is so concerned about what happens in the confines of the bedroom of two consenting adults. THIS is the Christian nation that wont relent in ensuring that there is NO allowance for horse racing on Sunday, The Lord's Day or for gambling, period! After all, this is a Christian Nation where the Christian church is the moral police aka guard DOGS in society and will make its voice heard on the aforementioned issues. This is the same Christian nation where the Watch DOGS remain silent on the three incident that I had reported earlier.
1. Where are those who are suppose to have their fingers on the pulse of the goings-on in the country to send out releases, condemning such heinous acts? Or are those not important enough for their commentary ?
2. Where is Shirley Richards with her Lawyers Christian Fellowship (LCF) members to lobby for legislation which will allow for a registry of child sex offenders and stiffer penalties for same? Is that not a kind of sexual behaviour that hurts others. Is she just concerned about the bedroom affairs of gays and lesbians? Is this not an issue for the LCF to become impassioned about? I am sure "Betty" over at Hear the Children's Cry can use the solidarity in fighting that cause.
3. I am waiting to see the prayer vigils and breakfasts and crusades that will help fight the monster of crime... After all God is powerful and crime is unnatural or is it?
