13 of the murders for 2019 are related to alcohol consumption. The Compol said that it’s time for the police officers to put an end to public drinking because it’s against the law. He said officers need to step up patrols of night clubs and discourage loitering but it seems that the Compol is about to wage a war on liquor license holders. He says he’s willing to shut down establishments who break the law and the police themselves need to be weary of drinking the quote “dutty fire water.”
The most recent killings which were also not classified as murder, the death of Malcolm Leslie and and Leevan Lewis at the hands of their cousins are believed to involve alcohol consumption at family related gatherings.
