KINGSTON, Jamaica — Social media on Wednesday staunchly condemned Tuesday’s shooting death of 31-year-old farmer Kemoy Green and his one-year-old son Alljay on Jackson Road in Flamstead, St James.
Residents found Green’s body, still clutching his slain son, by the roadway following a series of explosions about 8:50 pm.
The police are yet to establish a motive for their deaths and have appealed for anyone with information to come forward.
Images of the double homicide began circulating on social media websites Facebook and Twitter on Wednesday, inflaming even more outrage.
The images show the bullet-riddled bodies of Green and his son.
Many social media users have condemned the sharing of the image, labelling the act “inhumane and insensitive”.
Rico Morgan said on Facebook: “Mi think mi was a strong youth but reading this make me break down, its really sad. The poor baby dead an not even know he's dead, oh God. Fi see them heartless man a pump bullet in the baby God please come for your world because I can't live in it any more.”
The general view is that, irregardless of the reason for harming Green, there is no justification for the murder of his one-year-old son.
While many are concerned about the insensitivity of people sharing the images of the deceased, others are more disturbed by the fact that criminals have become so hardened and callous that even the very suckling are no longer safe within society.
Mwhip commented: “What could an infant have done to be gunned down? Lord, this is too much to understand. Those murderers have to be from another planet and are devoid of human emotions. Rip.” more
