Mayor of Portsmouth Cleve St Jean has described the violent murder of 22 year old Tyson ‘Boyee’ Thomas which took place in that town on Tuesday afternoon as “disgusting”.On Tuesday, Tyson “Boyee” Thomas of Zicak, Portsmouth was fatally shot by a masked man whom the police have not yet identified.“It is really something that is disgusting, and the police and the community need to come together to help one another, to prevent these kinds of crime, be it just petty thieves, murder or another crime in the community,” St. Jean said.According to the Mayor, the entire community needs to play their part by providing information to assist the police with their investigations.“In order to solve any crime you need the community and you need information. As much as the police are playing their part in terms of investigating, we need to bring institutions close to the community and make people feel they are party of everything, because in order to solve any crime we need information from the community. We need to institute programs that the community is going to feel a part of the police and the police feel part of the community, so we can get information in solving crimes.”The Mayor further stated that one person’s action can affect the safety of the entire town and therefore calls on perpetrators to cease from committing these criminal acts.“We cannot have a town where persons can feel they can do anything; we cannot have a town where persons can feel they can murder or cheat or steal and it’s just ok because it’s not ok. One person affects the whole town. We have tourist in the town and besides tourist we the people need to feel safe.”The Mayor therefore calls on the perpetrators to “stop because their action is affecting everybody”.
