Speech
Prime Minister the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller.

I condemn in the strongest manner the latest act of senseless violence perpetrated upon a family. This evil act has taken from us six Jamaicans, including two innocent teenagers and their mother.

Life is too precious a gift for it to be so wilfully, maliciously, and brutally snuffed out.

Too many among us are inflicting pain, hurt and even death as a means of resolving differences. Such acts defy comprehension and especially when carried out against a family and our young, innocent children, robbing them of the opportunity to contribute to the development of their community and country.

I appeal to anyone who knows anything to come forward and assist the police so those responsible can be swiftly brought to justice.

I offer my deepest sympathies to the family members left to grieve and the quiet community of  Logwood whose tranquil way of life has been shattered by this criminal act. I wish for those injured in this vicious act of criminality, a full and speedy recovery.
