Attorney General Marlene Malahoo-Forte is bemoaning the breakdown of discipline in homes across Jamaica.
Her concerns were expressed in a number of Twitter post from her personal account. In one she wrote:
“There are many homes in Jamaica with modest means and single parents. Yet in them excellence and decency thrive. What is happening in those where criminality dominates?”
In a follow up tweet shortly after she had this to say:
“The society needs to wake up. For too long things have gone horribly wrong in too many homes in our nation. Now taking a life to settle dispute or get even has been normalized and is accepted by too many.”
Her concerns come on the heels of a spike in the murder rates right across the Island with nearly 50 killed since the start of 2018.
