Retraction Needed Now Mr. Bailey

Retraction Needed Now Mr. Bailey 

Tuesday, July 12, 2011, Kingston, Jamaica – Jamaicans For Justice (JFJ) is in full support of the release attached which was issued earlier today by Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All Sexuals and Gays (JFLAG) in response to the awful, distasteful and discriminatory remarks of Senior Superintendent Fitz Bailey of the Organized Crime Investigative Division.  The sexual orientation of alleged criminals is irrelevant.

The JFJ is deeply disappointed that a policeman as senior as Mr. Bailey would make such incendiary remarks, unsupported by data or reasoned analysis, which have the potential to result in harm to decent law abiding citizens.  These remarks need a retraction and an apology not a weak attempt at justification.
