Several residents of the Jamaica took to their official Facebook accounts and expressed their views and opinions on the news.

Another person with a Facebook handle Anthony Forrest commented the following “Crime ad taken a different turn because he could never want to help! I wonder if he was carrying some grievance for that man for a long time?
