Munroe: No Sense In Counting Murders Year To Year

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Amid a 61-percent increase in murders, National Security Minister Wayne Munroe says the focus really shouldn’t be on counting murder after murder, but rather getting to the root of the problem. This as he revealed he is personally looking into the Jerome Avenue shooting that left six men dead six months ago.

NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Amid a 61-percent increase in murders, National Security Minister Wayne Munroe says the focus really shouldn’t be on counting murder after murder, but rather getting to the root of the problem. This as he revealed he is personally looking into the Jerome Avenue shooting that left six men dead six months ago.

Kyle Walkine has the story.

 



With murders up 61 percent, compared to this same period last year, National Security Minister Wayne Munroe says there’s a deeper issue than just counting how many murders occur from year to year.

Munroe added while police must do their job and prevent crime from happening, intervention must occur at a social level by addressing the issues that lead people to commit crimes.

Though overall crime is down by two percent, crimes against the person are up 25 percent.

On Wednesday, Police Commissioner Paul Rolle revealed that some suspects in the Jerome Avenue shooting that left six men dead and a woman and toddler in hospital, have since fled town and one has died.

Munroe says he still has questions surrounding that case.

Munroe says he’s also going to look into the treatment of one of the victims- Renardo “crack teeth” Bastian and complaints that he may have been denied medical treatment immediately after the incident.

Munroe says as the member of parliament for some of those families, he has a duty to look into the matter.
