Jamaica: "Hip Cop" Fights Crime with Hip Hop

Controversial Jamaican Senior Superintendant Police Chief Reneto Adams is adding hip-hop to his flashy get up of aviator sunglasses and black combat boots.  He's hitting the airwaves with anti-crime raps warning gangsters to stop ruining lives, stop taking over the island of Jamaica, or "feel the full extent of the law." Criminal rights groups have lashed out against Adams, calling his raps "irresponsible, frightening, and distasteful."  Adams is said to have led raids that resulted in dozens of deaths.  Just days ago, he was acquitted of murder charges related to these raids.
