Photo credit: Jamaica-gleaner.comKingston, Jamaica – The National Youth Council of Jamaica (NYCJ) is concerned about the unprecedented attacks on youth and children by unscrupulous members of society with the murder of 6 year old Tona Henry of Jarrett Lane of Mountain View Avenue and the heartless beheading of 18 year old Scott Thomas and 19 year old Joyette Lynch both of Spanish town in recent weeks.We condemn these ruthless acts and extend our sympathies to the families, friends and wider community of the victims affected by these dreadful killings. We are deeply disturbed and saddened that in these vicious and inhumane acts, youth are oftentimes both the perpetrators and victims. Consequently, we make an appeal to our young people to disassociate themselves from criminals. Take a stand against crime and violence! PROACTIVE STEPS NEEDED The NYCJ is further calling on the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) to move swiftly in fully implement their Community Based Policing (CBP) concept that will see the Police and Citizens, particularly the youth, working together in partnership to tackle problems of crime and disorder towards building safer communities and restoring trust.We call on the relevant agencies to provide ongoing counselling and support to the traumatized children of 37-year-old Gary Emmanuel Smith of Bedward Gardens in August Town, St Andrew who was also beheaded. This is necessary for them to overcome the traumatic experiences and help them to adjust to the harsh realities.Ryan Small, ChairmanNational Youth Council of Jamaica read more

He also served two terms as manager.‘King Kenny’ won eight league championships, three European Cups, two FA Cups, five League Cups and one UEFA Super Cup in his career at Anfield.He also played a leading community role in the aftermath of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, attending funerals and meeting the bereaved after 96 Liverpool fans were crushed to death at the Sheffield stadium before an FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest.“The leadership and solace he gave to individuals, the club and city as it tried to come to terms with the trauma and tragedy of Hillsborough transcended sporting achievement,” said Henry.“His name is synonymous with our club, with our home and the city of Liverpool. Now it will be as visible as it is palpable.” read more
