Kill Them before they kill you – Reneto Adams style of policing
This controversial former senior superintendent of police, Reneto Adams is still making the headlines in Jamaica. He’s been talking about the killings in the Tredegar Park area of St Catherine, where eight men and women were shot by gunmen.
So now he’s been saying two things …first
“My policy is that where criminals are concerned, we are to identify them and treat them like the ferocious crocodiles and alligators, having them killed in the eggs before the are hatched”
So he’s saying kill criminals before they have committed the crime or when they are young?
“Anywhere you see the alligators and crocodiles, have them killed before they devour you.”
And here he is saying kill the criminal before crime gets out of control?
I know there are people who agree with this style of policing and when things are tough it’s hard not to look at possible solutions like this. But this has been a style of policing in Jamaica for decades now and it is not working. The murder rates speak for themselves.
