Public Relations Consultant Jerry George is of the view that crime is not a governmental issue but rather a community one.
George express such view on his Up Early in the Morning, which is done live on Facebook.
There has been a spate of killings lately here in St Vincent with Brenda Layne, a security officer who was stabbed in the neck becoming the 21st murder.
On Wednesday evening Evelyn Dublin a 79yro woman was found dead in the Northern Village of Byrea, Police have not ruled if peters death is a homicide.
George said that in many instances people want to blame the police and urged Vincentians to dismiss such a notion.
“ We want to say is the government, let me say something straight up here, because it’s something I have said in the past, any government that wants to come to office and tell you they can fix crime don’t believe them”.
George said the reason is clear, crime is not a governmental issue, crime is a community issue, George lamented.
“Let us stop looking elsewhere for answers and holding other people responsible, look outside your door”.
Recently Opposition Leader Godwin Friday said the government’s responses to crime have taken the form of a seemingly garrulous presentation on the sociology of crime by Dr. Ralph Gonsalves and what may have been a street-level analysis from Julian Francis – who essentially told law-abiding Vincentians that they were safe once they walked on their side of the road and let the criminals shoot and kill on the other side of the road.
