?as Caribbean leaders look to tackle crime, drugsPrime Minister of Jamaica, Bruce Golding, warned his fellow Caribbean leaders on Sunday, to step up job creation and opportunities that offer hope or else the Caribbean would be filled with ?a new, smarter generation of criminals.?Leaders of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) are meeting in Montego Bay to discuss ways to clamp down on crime and the drug trade.Golding said that crime does not exist in a vacuum,Wholesale Jerseys China, but thrives in an environment in which poverty is prevalent and hope and opportunities limited.?Let us also be clear that fighting crime is not just a law enforcement exercise.
