[VIDEO] Rampant Corruption by the Jamaican Police Force Exposed

This is truly sickening and saddening. Who will stand up for the rights of the ordinary citizen? When will enough be ENOUGH? How does a governing body of a nation with less than 3 million people stomach the truth that they have one of the highest murder rates, per capita, of any other nation and seemingly stand by and do nothing about it?

Yes, I am biased. I am Jamaican. We are BRILLIANT, but we cannot seem to figure this one out.

Here's a start. ILLEGAL FIREARMS. ACCOUNTABILITY. CORRUPTION. Address them. Find solutions and stop trying to pull the wool over peoples eyes. A criminal in an Armani suit is STILL a criminal.

This rampant self-loathing is unbearable.

We are to love ourselves before we can love our neighbor. Action speaks louder than words, thus the underlying truth is that we despise ourselves. WHY? How did we get to this point and how do we reverse it?

LEADERS STAND UP. If you are not a part of the solution YOU ARE A PART OF THE PROBLEM. I hear initiatives to control gangs and reduce crime have been introduced. Well, it's TIME to roll up our sleeves and get to work. As Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. so eloquently put it, change is the result of choice, action.

"Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability. TIME doesn't bring change. People bring change over TIME."

What is done in the dark shall come to light.

While some Jamaicans will be embarrassed by this exposé, I am glad it has come to light, again. This corruption needs to be addressed, theses hard issues need to be tackled and if Jamaica's dark secrets need to be exposed on a global platform in order to get the ball rolling, then SO IT MUST BE.

And mi naw put mi mout a groun fi say it.
