The Editor Speaks: Crime is topic of the day again


Pin It

There was some encouraging news to report today. Justice Charles Quin on Thu (23) found Raziel Jeffers guilty of the murder of Marcus Ebanks and guilty of the attempted murder of Rod Ebanks, Joe Bush, Jose Sanchez and Adryan Powel. Jeffers was one of two gunmen who shockingly discharged their guns on a group of young men as they sat in a yard near the Bonaventure Boys Home in West Bay and missed their intended target of Jose Sanchez. Instead they killed Mr. Ebanks and seriously wounded two other persons. One of the persons, Adrian Powel, is a teenager who was only 14 at the time of the shooting and is now paralysed.

After the verdict RCIPS Supt. Kurt Walton praised his officers. I praise everyone, including the legal department and Justice Quin who sentenced Jeffers to life imprisonment. Jeffers was also convicted of the possession of an unlicensed firearm.

Another feather in the cape for the RCIPS is the arrest of two men, also on Thursday, in connection with the gang related killings last year when Robert Mackford Bush was shot dead in West Bay on
13th Sept.

What is so sad is the two men arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder are only 17 and 18 years of age! What a start to their adult life and especially so if they are convicted.

And finally we have yet another robbery and again in West Bay. The name ‘Wild’ will soon be penned to this district and I’m sure the law abiding residents there must be more than fed up with what is going on.

But time is running out for this scum and after a slow start the RCIPS are getting their man (or men). Everybody has had enough of violent crime and our patience runneth over. The rewards for the amount of money involved is a pittance for the time you WILL be spending behind bars.
