Gun-related crime in the Caribbean
Early this year, when I was at the Leewards Times newspaper in Nevis, I attended a press conference with the U.S. Ambassador to the Eastern Caribbean, based in Barbados, who was on her inaugural tour of the region. Mary "We didn't know a lot about the Caribbean so my husband and I went to Barnes and Noble and got some books, and decided yes, we'd accept the appointment..." Kramer, I asked her a question about the summary deportation of criminals back to their home countries in the Caribbean. Guyana, already strapped by a crime problem, was asking the U.S. to sign some kind of agreement with them over the management of these cases so it was less like just dumping people there, some of whom had never in their living memories lived in Guyana.
"We don't deport American citizens," said Mrs. Kramer, who had been most admirably coached in all of her lines. (Who writes this stuff?)
Well, Mrs. Kramer, I think I may safely speak for the people of the Caribbean when I say, "We don't manufacture guns."
