    Thursday | Jamaica Observer

    DEPUTY Commissioner of Police Glemore Hinds said yesterday that the wider society is to be blamed for the West Kingston community of Tivoli Gardens becoming an enclave controlled by criminal elements who operated it as a country unto itself. "As a country, most of us in this room - I think the only person who can claim exception is Sir David Simmons -- are a part of the problem, including the security forces," said Hinds during his second day of evidence at the Tivoli Enquiry being held at the Jamaica Conference Centre in downtown Kingston.

  10. The Tivoli time bomb had to be defusedRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 16, 2015 | Jamaica Observer

    As I continue to listen to evidence coming out of the Tivoli Enquiry, and especially that from former Commissioner of Police Owen Ellington, I am convinced that the security forces had no other option but to storm into the barricaded community in May 2010. When I recall the conversations I had with people either inside Tivoli Gardens or those closely connected with the political side of that "state within a state", the knowledge that it had amassed a formidable arsenal of weaponry over the last 14 years and the raw power wielded by 'The President', one may not have thought that the structure would have been dismantled in such violent fashion but, for the good of the country, it had to go.

    The brutal hacking to death of a 14-year-old schoolgirl two days ago in St Thomas is either indicative of the mindless brutality of a mad man or, more realistically, a nation filled with too many underdeveloped people whose struggle with themselves and others places extreme violence as a regular tool of social interaction. As much as complete strangers are prepared to shed tears over the untimely death of little Kayalicia Simpson, the terrible truth is, we have been here before and, as a nation, we seem not be learning anything from the tragedies.
