  1. US Must Do More Or JA Fi Stand๐Ÿ†™๏ธOn Their๐Ÿ‘ฃ& Stop Being LickyLicky Why Would The US Do That๐Ÿค”They Wanna Be Able To Say JA In๐Ÿ”25 Drugs/Guns Countries Acting Like Ya'll All Ain't In It Together Get Outta Ere๐Ÿ˜ด

  2. The illegal guns, and drugs that America is shipping into Jamaica through the Chinese owned border of Jamaica. Tell Chang to tell is source to tell the gun Smugglers to stop it. Black people wake up, you're being set up buy wars, and rumors of War. violence and rumors of violence.

  3. The Beast America create this violence. in your country and you're looking to the devil to help you with the problem he created, talking about allies. you're not allies to America your subject to America they own you. And while you're at it ask America to get the whitetail deer out of Jamaica that America brong in. it's just destructive as the guns to the ecosystem they are destroying Jamaica for what purpose. Read the imperialism Charter.

  4. I have said this many many times for a number of years. The foreign affairs minister needs to lodge a Complaint through diplomatic channels instead of staying silent. This foreign affairs ministry do not look after Jamaicans abroad so what is it's role. The Government of Jamaica needs to tell USA or the President of USA to stop the exporting of their arms of destruction to Jamaica and the Caribbean.

  5. Peter Bunting needs to go and check his history before opening his mouth. He needs to go back to the year of 2004 when the then so called Minister Philip Paulwell did the deal on the cockpit country which went horribly wrong with bauxite levies. The then Prime Minister of the time PJ Patterson described it as "youthful exeurbance ", at the time, and as we can see till today Paulwell is still sitting in the house of representatives. Added to that we are still trying to grapple with mining in the Cockpit country. Has everyone notice just how quite Phillip Paulwell has keep on this issue.

  6. Are you kidding? U. S. Probably the ones bringing them in… You haven't heard what they did to America's ghettos? Y'all act like ya don't know but we know y'all know… Ya need that American dollars tho.. Don't it?

  7. after so many criminal gangs are now armed to the teeth , after thousands of jamaicans are dead , after so many decades , they are just seeing this ? lol

  8. TVJ needs to start live streaming the news or at least delay it. You can delay it and add the same YouTube ads. I guarantee you would getter better numbers and subscribers than with one stop media

  9. Americans are getting massacred by guns in America and the American government does not care . Now why would America care about Jamaica's gun problem ? Remember now we all just a bunch of ……

  10. Everyone concerned about the guns alone? Where the criminals get the bullets? Gun alone doesnt kill, bullets does. The same corrupt jamaican policemen supplying criminals. Crime will not stop until the force is cleaned up

  11. The US is reluctant to do much about their own citizens shooting up the place due to the relaxed gun laws, and we're over here telling them to fix out gun problem? No. It's our responsibility. So the government body in-charge of this kinda thing needs to get their shit together.

  12. Nasty peice of shit dem, is Jamaica fi protect what comes into Jamaica and do something about their own crime, Politicians are deadly.

  13. The US will not intervene because that's the way the NRA makes their millions. Every weekend there are many gun shows in South Florida and it's easier to buy guns than it is to buy cigarettes

  14. … years waiting for JPS to fix the street light at my gate, and the ones up and down the road, and the others throughout my community.
    At night my community looks like 1989, no street light!

  15. Blah blah blah!!!How the U.S. must do more to stop the illegal gun's from leaving their shores and the Jamaican government are a puppet to the U.S. government!!!…. both J.L.P. and P.N.P.๐Ÿ˜’

  16. Once you are a puppet to the U.S. government. worse you are depending an them they don't give a damn if a whole arsenal of weapons leaving their country to Jamaica!!!!and that's for sure!!

  17. Have you seen the mass murders in the US? They won't help their own people, so who are we? Don't hold your breath.

  18. no gun no mek a Jamaica…the shottas can't Import them so smady know how they are Coming in, the criminals are not only the ones shooting…who is Handling the Logistics?

  19. When is the Government going to stop selling off our blessed JA. We don't want dem dutty Boxite. Wid all dem big brains, dem must caan find another way fe de country fe earn money. By de time Boxite done JA will be one big rockstone. I will hate any Party who allow this to happen

  20. Why would they stop it? When they don't have to hang us anymore. They realize that we have a appetite for guns plus we don't love our brothers n sisters neither ourselves so give us guns to kill ourselves they won't stop it

  21. Why would they help with the flow of gun in Jamaica when the president of USA is telling people to go back to they crimes reading Country,, they should have ask five years ago when there was a good president in the White House.. not this punk who looks like he still have is white treat lock up in is suitcase

  22. Government officials is not understanding. Word to the government of Jamaica or analyst .all 1st world continues don't want to see other countries develop. It's going to take away from their economy. Nuff 3 world countries can capitalize off those 1 world countries because nuff of them is starting to crumble and people are going to look for other countries to live by developing countries you will see greater growth

  23. These governments in Jamaica are really behind time, please wake up "Black people, it's a third world country, you all really think they're going to detect what ever harmful to whoever in Jamaica are any other third world countries, black people neglect themselves, what's nice to Y"all is sour to the "Almighty. Am here trying to make sure my "Soul be accepted, hey, hey!!! They make sure it reach there, kill each other off, go prison mad out and all these things.

  24. The US have thier agenda, when they knowingly flood poorer African and African descent countries , they know exactly what they're trying to or are achieving.

  25. The guns are not the USA problem, the guns is Jamaica problem. The guns are coming right through the wharf, and whatf workers are turning a blind eyes, and I think they are getting paid to do just that, and I tell you y I say that if send a borrel with a few cans of corned beef they can tell me how much corned beef I have. I bet if the government terminate those workers at both port, and put some new workers on good security measures in place all the guns stop come in to the island it's just common sense

  26. You all hear what the US talking about marijuana coming from Jamaica they're not talking about the guns that is coming from the u.s. to Jamaica look what they lack up the man for Honey Honey look at Honey and call it drugs and have the man in jail for all most 3 months yet they have guns flooding Jamaica Lord the prime minister Andrew take over from Porsha Simpson and doing the same things selling out Jamaica he is licky licky

  27. Check all them big boat them that out a sea coming to Jamaica who using the gun can't bring them in too much corruption

  28. Jamaica need a tougher law for the gunmen " more time and harder time in jail , in America if you get hold with a gun and don't have a license 5 years off the top , Jamaica need law's like that


  30. Truth, theres corruption in the government's over the years crime benifits both parties, but if someone has the whill to do it it can be done , as a sovereign state we do have the right to change laws and that we should do .

  31. The U.S. must do more the headline days. I hate to laugh but that's funny dont hold your collective breaths. It big business for the U.S. to spread death and destruction abroad, that's one of its major exports. How are you going to ask them to stop something they have been doing since their inception.

  32. Why would anyone in the right mind listen to a politician whose main aim is to create drama not having people interest at heart

  33. Washing dirty linen in public mr drayton shows the public the PNP is divided. Now how could u not agreed with the mass when they say both parties are very similar. I doubt you can brush a side the obvious the peoples observation. Shameful.

  34. So jamaica nah stop tek money from china and a put the country in more and more dept, when they should be putting more investment in the education system and the health system, AND DO MI NO WAH NO ILLITERATE FOOL SEH NTN…!!!!

  35. Customs and Jamaican police should conduct searches of all incoming ships and air planes on August 29th, 30th and 31st. Criminals may attack police officers during this period. Police raids on establishments of illegal activity should conducted during this time. The Jamaican police will notice a high occurrence of robberies and killings during this time period also. But most importantly, search all incoming ships and planes. Security check points on major roads in Jamaica should also be conducted. Coordinate this suggestion and police will see improved results in seizures and arrest of suspects.

  36. It's our own buying and exporting these gun.not U.S. we jamaican need to do better.every man is responsible for his actions
