3 more persons shot, including 2 women

Hours earlier on Friday night, two women were shot around ten-thirty while socializing with a group of men reputed to be gang affiliates in the Yarborough Area. Eighteen year old Renesha Pitts and twenty year old Carly Cardinez were with in front of Wesley College when a lone gunman came from Dickenson Street and opened fire. While Pitts was shot to the left side of the abdomen, Cardinez received several shots to the buttocks. Within five hours, shots rang out once again in another area of the City. Twenty-three year old Sheldon Sosa was walking on Iguana Street when at the junction with Elston Kerr Street; he was shot once to the left shoulder and twice to the right arm.

    Say, Hon. PM, how is that gang truce going? Are you getting your money’s worth from the tribute you have been paying to your overlords?

    What can be expected when the government put assasins on payroll. There is an old saying, “you lay with dogs, you get up with flees.” The government is getting exctly what they are paying for, more violence. Take that money and pay a hang man, it is time that an eye for an eye be enacted. Take these criminals and devise a killing game, put the gangs together in a fenced in arena with no way out but to face the opponent. Allow them to kill each other in a controlled environment and spare innocent lives. Never thought I would even think about such a thing, but drastic measures is necessary.
