She went asking for help!!!! How could they not look into her circumstances especially as a poor defenseless baby was involved! The lot of then should be immediately dismissed from duties!!! That child could have been alive today!! We need to get rid of the non caring attitude of our J'can police. Do they only jump to their feet if a gun is involved!!! Wake up and smell the coffee officers!!! As a mother it pains my heart to know what that poor child went through at the hands of its mom!!

The police in jamaica are stereotyped as being stupid, this does not help. How is it that a mother can come to surrender her baby and that is considered 'normal'. How could they not take this mother and child in protective custody. Even with no formal training in dealing with people with mental health issues some red flags should have been raised. If they cant use initiative in this area how are they going to solve serious crimes? That is why the country is under siege fron criminals. There is absolute absence of critical thinking from top to bottom. Your role is not just that of executioner.

rip to the little angel ......they should have taken that baby and find out what the problem is because of their nonchalant ways a child is dead.........here in the U.S.A. if you walk into any church,police station,and hospital they will take the child no questions asked.....but i guess its apart of life in the islands ........what hurts me the most is that she knew she had a problem so she went for help .......if its true to the case then..................damn you to the officers.

I am so speechless right now...........at least 2 police officers in each station across Jamaica should have training in counselling. Had any of them had the insight to really hear this woman's painful cry for help, they would have immediately acted. Everybody look like dem working just for the pay, it's not really about serving - just putting food on the table.
It does not take a lot to hear someone's cry - you don't even really need formal training; just be SENSITIVE!! But no, we don't believe in being proactive, we just love to react. From what I've heard on the news thus far, the lady must have realized something going wrong with her again (mentally) so to try save her baby, begged the police for help. Dem cyan bother, so see what happened. Bet you they never expect that. When this lady gets her treatment and realize what really happened, watch her closely so she don't take her own life in despair. Poor little baby; God help her and her family cope with this loss.....smh

Chang raises concerns over JUTC Smarter Card system

Opposition Spokesman on Transport & Infrastructure Development, Dr. Horace Chang, is raising fresh concerns regarding the Jamaica Urban Transit Company (JUTC), this time in relation to the roll out of its smarter card system. In a press release, Chang stated that over the past week the JUTC has further exposed the incompetence of its management, and that Jamaican commuters are paying the price. “Apart from the fundamental insensitivity of the fare increases, they bungled the implementation for seniors, showing that they really had not planned properly for the increase and that there was no need to rush. Now these additional problems at the start of the school term show that those in charge of the JUTC are truly incompetent and continue to bungle the affairs of the company," said Chang. A copy of the press release can be viewed below.
