….Welcome to JamDown!
Poor people a dead at random,
Political violence can’t done,
Bare ghost and phantom….
Damien “Junior Gong” Marley, lyrics – Welcome to JamRock
I wish the Jamaica media would clamor for the full repeal of Jamaican oppressive sections of libel laws with the same zest and zeal that they advocate for the summary execution of those Jamaican citizens who are caught red-handed being poor.
For example, Brianmax posted a video of JLP councilor Rosie Hamilton tracing off a PNP councilor Angela Brown-Burke in the Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation (KSAC) meeting. Watch the video.
Whoa! Murder! Poor Desmond McKenzie has to keep order.
At 2:07 into the video, the TVJ’s Archibald Gordon says there are statements that cannot be repeated for legal reasons. Why bother even showing the video if they won’t show the whole thing? Who is to say what the CVM portion left out?
We need greater freedom of speech in Jamaica, there is such a thing as the marketplace of ideas and I have a high degree of confidence in the ability of Jamaicans to pick sense outta nonsense and come to their own conclusions. We need to remove some of the smoke and mirrors surrounding our political processes and personalities. I want to hear why, how, who, when, and where Rosie Hamilton was shot. Does she believe Angela Brown-Burke is aware of the reasons for her being shot, or is familiar with the assailants? I want to hear that, don’t you?
All these secrets are killing us, we need to exorcise the demons, too many ghost and phantoms. Out in the street….
