Simpson Miller deplores brutal killing of 3-year-old girl

News post July 11, 2016

KINGSTON, Jamaica – Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller says as the wave of murders continue across the country, Jamaicans must be particularly incensed that children continue to be among the victims of these vile and senseless acts.

In a statement today, Simpson Miller deplored the killing of a three year-old girl in the Orange Hill Community of St Ann’s Bay, St Ann and expressed concerns about the wave of murders. “I grieve with the parents, family members and the entire community at this senseless killing of one so young. I convey my sincere condolences to her parents at this time of great pain and loss,” Simpson Miller said. The Opposition Leader said the killing represents a loss of potential as no one knows for sure the positive impact the young victim would have had on the society if she was given the opportunity to develop into an adult and contribute to the building of her community and nation. “All well thinking Jamaicans must deplore and speak out against these gruesome acts of brutality against Jamaica’s children,” Simpson Miller added.
