Jasmin Brown has the story.



As murders continue to rise, the Free National Movement (FNM) leader says it’s time for the Davis administration to do more than just talk.

Pintard calling on the government to convene a crime summit where leaders and members of various criminal groups.

Pintard says put bluntly, politicians are likely well aware of who are members of their constituencies and helping during their campaigns.

During the weekly Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) press briefing on Thursday, Prime Minister Davis announced several measures to stem the escalation of murder, including saturation patrols, an increase in drones and Shotspotter technology, the creation of a new police task force and the constitution of the national security council.

The PM’s the announcement came after five men were murdered in separate incidents between Sunday and Wednesday and hours before another man was killed on Andros Avenue, pushing the murder count to 44.

Pintard says he could not weigh in on the pm’s most recent pronouncements as he has not had a chance to go through it, but he reference the crime conclave held by the PM late last month.
