According to a release from the MCJ, the recent killings of medical personnel in Manchester, St Elizabeth and St James are terrible reminders of the culture of violence that has descended on our country. "Too many lives have been shattered by violence, and every sector has been touched," said the release.
It added: "We mourn with the families of Dr Phillip Chamberlain, Dr Clinton Lewis and Dr Barrington Dixon. But even while we mourn their loss, we are confident that, despite these attacks, dedicated members of the medical community will continue to offer the best care to their patients and see to their well-being."

"Persons who display such callous disregard for the sanctity of human life deserve to be punished, for, to do less will embolden them to continue their brazen attacks on innocent people," said the MCJ.
The council said the activities of these criminals continue to threaten the very life of our democracy, and they should be stopped.
