looking at all we can change the law so that deserving cases are expunged not
100% expunged especially for the violent crimes they will next punch so that they
can have a clean record because there are many persons who when they were in
their teens or early twenties committed crimes and they after they tell me you
have to middle line to get that job the justice minister explained that the move
comes amid complaints from persons who have criminal records from as far back
as twenty years and aren’t able to get a job because of their criminal past some

they lose the work or they can’t get a job because they have a criminal record

pray and there’s no work there will still be death and if I spirits we say
we just pray and we don’t watch our children and ensure they don’t become
delinquents I don’t turn to crime there will be death 1004 sports two-time world

  1. Lady: I know of a case in vineyard town here People: Waaah 😂 lol

  2. you are gong to pay teacher more money

  3. These people want to come out and make their voices heard in the same way outside Gordon House in demonstrations against corrupt politicians. They should let their voices be heard in the same fashion. One of the top London Hospital, St Thomas is at present being used to quarantine someone who has the virus. You don't hear demonstration in London about it. They the residents needs to direct their energy towards the crime and violence and corruption.

  4. The murdering gunmen will kill more than the corona me

  5. I'm super embarrassed at the stupidity of these people. There has to be a suitable place for quarantining the people and it seems that this hospital is one such place. I'm bored already. If it was a criminal amongst them they would not be this concerned. A criminal is more of a threat than the damn coronavirus. Sheesh.

  6. This simple shows that a pure deaf people leading us. Imagine him in important meeting partially deaf…Lord have mercy on us.

  7. nuh sah mr minister this is a virus by air contact,, the board house nah help, you need fe call for help,sos

  8. mr gov stop the bull,, jamaican people nuh dumb again.. corona virus .play wid, if the lady wrong why the hospital..

  9. These politicians are behaving like fowls without head when they have to deal with challenges.

  10. Take the quarantine facilities to the goat island it must not stay on the main land Jamaica is a small country the government must be very careful with that deadly virus , the goat island is the best place for quarantine of deadly virus.

  11. Why they don’t Bring it up town where they live why they want to bring it down town to kill we people

  12. Jamaicans more people will die from the Flu than the Coronavirus. That's the reality of what we facing right now. Both can be treated with success when the appropriate protocol is put in place.

  13. Check the deporties tommorow Chinese dey a jail a England

  14. You cannot know who has the coronavirus. Because the person mate might not have the symptom in 24 hours.

  15. Up up keep up the good work mr. Pm new Jamaica blessings

  16. Love the new jamaica

  17. the PNP will politicize every thing…they are up to no good for Jamaica…why is their general secretary Robinson at this meeting scaring and dividing out people..OUT OF MANY ONE PEOPLE…WE LIVE BY IT WE DIE BY IT..THIS IS JAMAICA

  18. Gov ago use the Corona virus to purge out Jamaica that's sad

  19. going forward long term we do need well guarded but comfortable quarantine areas away from the general population to be put in-place…fort Augusta was once used as a quarantine area… it is a female adult correctional centre today..

  20. That Man is too lie

  21. How can anyone believe the government dont want the virus to spread?

    So why are they using SOE to mess up the young men record more?

    Everyone talking now police need more salary too. The Commissioner is so useless. He couldn't be paid for his work.

  22. What about the people that they take to the university hospital in papine

  23. These leaders need vision, they are confused and blind to the future of this country.

  24. I don't know why Jamaican people is so indiscipline about everything, with this disease named coronavius. It is nothing new, it is nothing but a fever like Hay fever, Hong Kong flu,and the malaria fever,if we went through those times with less technology equipments and. Now is much more high tech, I don't see why with all the excitement about this coronavius.
    I remembered when those came out in Jamaica in 1960s and early 1970s, people useto used several bushes, or herbs to counteract the fevers. Nowadays Jamaican people got too sophisticated to used our local herbs for their health, they relying too much on the United States for everything now a days.
    They got too lazy because Jamaica have several herbs to cured every kinds of sicknesses, but they are relying too much on the pharmaceutical companies for medicines. So watching those people in Vineyards Town behaving so erratic against the speaker, they have no form of respect for the chairman of the meeting. Anyone who is at the meeting does not likes what am saying about their abnoxous behaviour, they can reply, or respond to my comment. Those people at the meeting must learned to respect themselves 1st, before they can respect anyone else.Their conduct at the meeting was very out of control, I hope those people in Vineyards could sees this video, and seeing themselves how they are behaving so erratic.
    They should have be a shamed at their dam selves, as some decent people in general, they should have shown some better self control.

  25. So out of quarantine people in that hospital and leave them to go home and be going up and down . which one they prefer?

  26. Jamaican government ah fuckary to bc lie

  27. Gunshot mi seh boom down kingshouse & house of Parliament
