    Wow! Anarchy at its highest peak. Politicans now? Lets see if this spurs the bigger ups to really start doing some serious works, or it will take the tragic ending of somebody bigger before they start to really clean up. And i mean clean up the so called, Dons and the scalliwags around them that they so duly influenced.

  • Cindy Royal says:

    @ Chuet – security, electronic gate, panic alarm, hospital premises cyaah save yuh inna Jamaica if smaddy really wah kill yuh. Worse if is an order set seh dem mus guh fi di smaddy. A jus suh it guh.

  • Tawkchuet says:

    Cindy it look so fi true, boy di place a run a way still I wonder is Wat brought on this heinous action.

  • Cindy Royal says:

    I don’t know what’s going on, but they’ve been killing government workers. 2 ppl – the security director, & the lady who was with him & the PR officer (the body found on Palisadoes Rd) – were killed from Jamaica Post. Now this, in such short order.

  • Tawkchuet says:

    Sounds fishy though Cindy and I guess to how di law enforcement set up we the public will never hear the full story sad

  • Cindy Royal says:

    Oh, Chuet, dem seh due to non payment of maintenance by the scheme’s residents there is no longer security at the security post.

  • Knows it all!! says:

    @ cindy, you hit the nail pon di head. If dem want to kill you a ja only father god can come doqn and stop it. You no see how dem go back fi di bwoy a maypen hospital? Brave badd

  • No Joke says:

  • Taliban says:

    Salt purifies di earth, so it nuh nothin to do wid saltness, it jus coincidential. some people when dem tink sah crosses a follow dem, a sea dem go. and nothin nuh salt likka sea wata

  • Met says:

    salt a like scissors and di lime a like broom maybe………….so when dem cut dem did need a clearance.. ie the lime.. :tkp

  • ... says:

    him know why him give dem di salt inna di fus place, unfortunately it neva did a wuk…shalama shalama :maafaganwati :maafaganwati it is unfortunate but there is more to this

  • Anonymous says:

    Bottom line: It doesn’t take much to have someone killed in Jamaica. The chances of being caught is next to none, so there are a lot of contract killings. The problem I see is that a lot of people are involved in shady (illicit) activities and if the things goes wrong,, you become a target. There are very few random killings in Jamaica and killing of individuals are used to settle scores, even in normal/legitimate business deals. If your business is doing a lot better than the other person, that can lead to your death.

    There is a Medical Doctor that have to have 24-hour security (ex-police officer) becuase of threats on his life. The story behind this is that “some” other doctors think this Non-Native Doctor is getting a lot more patients than they do.

    Do you remember this contract killing and who was behind it?

    bwoy oh bwoy what’s new, i have reached a stage where wen i hear these things i wonder what Jamaica will be like in a few years, anarchy will rule and it will become the place to not live and raise families, sad but a di truth. Met, i like d title and how you played on the salt issue,,,,@ dotty is wat u talking bout him giving salt?, this is just coincidence that he wrked at the ministry and is an isloted case.

  • Cindy Royal says:

    Anonymous, u have answered ur question re Bunny Francis’ murder – “a lot of people are involved in shady (illicit) activities and if the things goes wrong”. While ppl from his circle will publicly say differently, he was one such person. They say don’t speak ill of the dead so all I will say is he was a real piece of work, as several Hondurans & Jamaicans can attest to. I’m not condoning murder, but sometimes they have it coming just from the way the cheat & treat ppl. I see the same glossy arguments being made about someone else who was killed recently, but the streets really know who these ppl r.

    A killing I think should’ve never happened was the killing of Sandra Supersad (Xtra owner). But that’s another unfortunate situation that makes u think b4 reacting when something happens. Shit I just had that moment Saturday when I wanted to react like a mad bull to a situation & I just let it go.

  • Cindy Royal says:

    Incidentally, both mentioned in my last comment were killed while waiting for their electronic gate to open. There was even security on the premises when Sandra died.

  • Tawkchuet says:

    Wow Cindy Wat a vile n wicked nation all woman dem a kill sad bad

  • Cindy Royal says:

    Di criminals/killers dem doe care who u r, wat gender or nutten like dat. If dem get order (paid/contract or from di don), dem a guh fi di smaddy. If a teef dem guh fi teef an di smaddy challenge dem, dem will try kill di person widdout hesitation – dat’s y ppl mus mek a concerted effort fi kill dem first. Is jus a desperado attitude dem have. I remember wen I used to go to Panama often, they used to warn me about that, especially wen going into the zone, cuz di man dem did terrible bad. Used to haffi pay fi put all yuh passport inna safe an a hide up yuh shopping money like mad smaddy. Now a di desperado attitude mi si here.

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    Cindy, bet yu by a mawning all fees due will be paid in full.

  • ... says:

    Riches i was under the impression that it was him handing out the salt, my apologies if I am incorrect.

  • Cindy Royal says:

    Phantom!!!! Mi seh! A di same ting mi fren seh to mi at lunch. :ngakak

  • Riches says:

    @ dotty Met posted the topic earlier in the week they used salt at the ministry for prayers the other day, look through and you will find it

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    But a true, Cindy. Wonda if de victim was one who failed to pay dues?

  • Cindy Royal says:

    I guess it doesn’t matter now, cuz when u’r dead u’r dead. A couple asked me the other day what I thought about them buying an apartment at Abbey Court. I told them it would be a fine buy altho it’s an older building complex, but the luxuries they’ll experience (no noise on wkends, clean pool, hell pool with water in it, maintenance ppl, security etc) comes @ a cost & they won’t get to play with the maintenance payment so they need to factor that in.

  • Anonymous says:

    @Cindy, re Bunny Francis’ murder, I thought it was the long lasting dispute with the “African” which led to his death. But from what I’m reading (between the lines) there was more things involved.

    What is the unofficial “stuff” behind the lady’s death. I read she was shot four times in the head while attempting to enter her gated community.

    BTW, you saw this in the paper today?

  • Cindy Royal says:

    Weh mi comment Met?

  • Cindy Royal says:

    I’m thinking it might be that too Anony, but given his history, unless there’s hard evidence against any 1 person, it will be hard to hold someone accountable when the spread of possible suspects is much wider than 1 person.

    During Fashion Night Out, some guys from Grants Pen were raiding the stores, which was ideal for them to do given the crowd FNO draws. They robbed a reformed bad man now store owner of 1 of the most popular stores uptown. He realised, made a call to the don, the don in turn told them to take back the stuff to him. When he started going thru the stuff he realised some weren’t his, called her & told her to take her stuff & she went off on the thieves, cussing them out & saying she’s going to get them thrown in jail etc. They felt disrespected & killed her days later. Just like that. If anybody know something different they can state it.

    Yeah I saw the story about the Honduras raid, but they haven’t given a name for the person.

  • PhantomPhoenix says:

    Cindy, it pays to live right on all levels. I wish our people would learn to respect the life of others and to know that there are ways to make the country work on all our behalf without the savage behavior coming from a sector of the population that makes progress stagnant.

    wow…it’s good to be on the board and having a resonable conversation *wink*. It’s a good day Met.

  • Belly Bang says:
