Scores of Jamaicans, angered by the Monday’s gruesome attack and rape of five females, including an eight-year-old child, yesterday protested across the island and called for the death penalty for criminals who rape and abuse children.

“How can a man rape a woman much less a child; this has to stop, and the Government need to re-introduce the death penalty,” said Velma Peart, a black-clad, placard-bearing protestor who was among a group of approximately 100 people who marched from Half-Way-Tree to Cross Roads in Kingston, the Jamaican capital.

In downtown Kingston, Youth and Culture Minister Lisa Hanna, officials of the Child Development Agency (CDA) and the Kingston and St Andrew Corporation joined protestors in that section of the city who pleaded for an end to abuse against women and children.-From The Jamaica Observer
