The police force, perhaps unwittingly, has given the best argument against the much talked about proposal for ‘preventive detention’.

Last week, the police released the names of 77 of the most wanted men in Kingston and St. Andrew alone. That’s a whole lot of wanted men walking about free among us, and when we consider that these fellows are drawn from only two parishes, the figure is even more alarming. Some 36 of those men are said to have committed dangerous gun crimes since the start of the year while the remaining 41 are wanted for crimes committed last year.
