Dancehall Reggae Music Been Blamed for High Crime Rate In Jamaica


The police high command in the western side of the island Jamaica have placed a hold on the issuing of permits for dances and parties.


They are saying that due to the high crimes rate they are not allowing any form of gathering to take place.

The world renown 'Dancehall Queen' which is held at the Pier One Complex in Mobay was not held this year 2016, as the promoter for the event said he was not granted a permit.

The question is, why are sound systems operators, DJs, Selectors, promoters, vendors and patrons been punished for the crimes rate in the country.

I have heard in many discussion that Dancehall/Reggae music are helping to promote violence in the society. Do you agree?

And there are double standard to this, as the saying goes in Jamaica, there are two different type of laws. One for the rich and one for the poor. Reason, the rich people can still keep their fictions, (REGGAE Sumfest)was not suspended.

I think they should stop using Dancehall and Reggae music as the reason for the high crime rate in the country (Jamaica).
