Jamaica’s Security Chief Calls Crime the Nation’s 9/11

Jamaican National Security Minister, Peter Bunting, spoke out about the country’s out of control crime rates by likening the crisis to the U.S.’s Sept. 11 terrorist attack.

"We have been so inoculated to our high levels of crime that we don't even recognize how bad it is," Bunting said. "If you just look at the numbers murdered each week in Jamaica and compare the size of our population to the United States, what it equates to is us having a 9/11 type loss every week."
