Crime thrives on acquiescence and fear.
This means if you are deemed to be fearful those who smell the fear will keep taking advantage of you.
This means you are seen as receptive, tolerant, or friendly to criminal conduct.
Across Jamaica and in communities in every country, criminals set up shop in places where residents show fear and demonstrate tolerance to crime.
This is particularly so when residents have options to report criminal activity yet chooses to remain silent.
You do not get a free pass from criminals simply because you remain silent.
Most criminals are cowardly predators who do not care who they exploit and abuse .
Today it’s someone else tomorrow it will be you.
