Topic: Extra judicial killing in Jamaica
Audience: General Public
Purpose: To inform my audience of the many innocents lives that the Jamaica Constabulary Force takes on a yearly basis.
Thesis: Extra judicial killing lead to a large number of innocent deaths

I. Extra judicial killing have lead to a rapid increase in civilians death. A. Statistical reports show that over 1422 people have lost their lives innocently by the Jamaica Constabulary Force between the years 2000 and 2007. (Office, I. P. 2008) B. 22 year old Errol Spence was also killed innocently during the Tivoli incursion by the police authorities. (Fahim, 2010) II. This insufferable act is wrong and causing other civilians and family members to fear life. A. According to Smith 2012, “it is very hard for persons with family members or friends allegedly abuse to trust the Police authorities”. (smith, 2012) B. Robert Hill’s wife a victimized civilian left the country after her husband death because she feared the police would kill her next. III. It is even against the law of God to kill.

A. (Exodus 20:13) “Thou shall not kill.”
B. The bible also says that it is wrong for a man to judge the appearance of another man. (John 7:24)

Conclusion
However, it is only important and prudent for the authorities to know and taking the lives of civilians blatantly without a cause is egocentric. Nonetheless, they should seek to enhance their motto which clearly states, “We serve, we protect, we reassure with courtesy, integrity and proper respect for the rights of all", and cease to taking the lives of innocent civilians.
