Jamaican security forces continue their operation in Tivoli Gardens
Operation in Tivoli - West Kingston Jamaica

The Jamaican security forces are continuing the operation in the west Kingston community of Tivoli Gardens, attempting to remove alleged criminal elements and restore governance.
Right after prime minister Bruce Golding gave permission for the proceedings to begin for Mr. Christopher 'Dudus' Coke to be extradited to the USA, it was reported that elements opposed to his arrest had reportedly blocked entrances and exits to the community, and, up to yesterday engaged the security forces in standoff.
Outside of that area - and the general downtown Kingston vicinity, the rest of Jamaica remains calm and business as usual.
What's your take on all this though? Is this an example of the loss of control of the state, or a prime example a people used and now abused by the political system?
