There's a reason they call it...

...the third world...insert alt text here

According to crime statistics from the Jamaica Constabulary Force, shootings in Montego Bay and its surrounding communities are up 32 percent over last year, and murders 45 percent. Robberies and home invasions are out of control. They’ve gone up 213 percent and 106 percent respectively over last year.

About 40 percent of the population in the Caribbean believes crime and security-related issues are the main problems facing their countries, even more so than poverty, the economy or inequality.
Another vacation spot struck off the list... sigh.

Markland Anthony Campbell, also known as Jahiant Janh, was shot around 9 p.m. as basketball fans crowded into Byward Market bars to watch the Toronto Raptors game.
Smell the "professional" journalism...
“Markland was maliciously gunned down defending the principle of righteousness he lived by.”
Which, apparently, precluded calling 911. The myth of the "bulletproof rapper"... debunked yet again.

The "third world" is not a place, it is a type of people.

Some of us older folk can remember when a socialist government (Manley?) in Jamaica introduced "total" firearms bans several decades ago.

They instituted special "gun" jails for anyone caught in possession.

Obviously worked a treat.
