It looks like they just want us to kill each other. Which isn't really a surprise...
As the Obama administration cracks down on smuggling firearm into Mexico, Jamaicans fear that even more firearms will reach the gangs whose turf wars plague the island of 2.8 million people.
X-ray scanners were installed at the Jamaican harbor ports to track illegal importing just two years ago, but the gangs use bribery and intimidation to get their shipments past inspectors.
In April, a newly hired customs supervisor had his tires slashed and days later was shot at on his way home from work, authorities say. The man was known for his strict scrutiny of cargo coming into a gang-infiltrated warehouse on the Kingston wharf.
The United States doesn't care about items that are exported but requires imports to be double and triple checked for drugs coming from Jamaica.
Besides coming in on freighters, authorities say, guns are stolen or purchased from crooked police or in 'guns for ganja' deals by fisherman, who bring homegrown marijuana to nearby Haiti and return with pistols, revolvers and submachine guns - many of them believed to be from the U.S. as well.
Come on Obama! I know you're up in the big house working hard for us but don't let the livelihood of the people living in the Caribbean slip your mind. Thanks!
