Death penalty is what we want

THERE ARE TIMES when one needs to stand-up and be counted.

Having read the views of the Attorney General Freundel Stuart I want to reply to his statement that said, “Everybody… believes in the death penalty until their son is involved – then they want the best lawyer and they want the system to be kind to them.”

Mr Stuart also went on to say that the death penalty was a solution for some and not for others because “it was a divisive issue”.

Well I want to enlighten the minister.  We the people educate you, we the people elected you. And it is we the people who are asking for justice.

We are a democracy and we are the ones who want justice.

There is an old calypso by the Mighty Sparrow that says: “Where ignorance is bliss, it’s folly to the wise, it took a dumb boy and a parrot to open me eyes.”

Well permit me to be the “dumb boy” here. There is no law that is a deterrent to anyone.

If that was so we would not have had 1 000 plus persons at Dodds. You say it is an issue of values. So was the insider dealing that led to the financial meltdown.

A crime that is committed is not only against the person, but against society. Government is to protect, as well as administer justice.

There are many who are the enemies of the state, and from time to time they rear their ugly heads.

Society cannot allow the lives of one or even six murders to go unpunished. Enough is enough.

We call on all in society to start a campaign for the death penalty for the murderers of these women and all future murders.

There has never been a referendum in this country, why? We need more than an election to vote out and vote in people who blatantly overlook the will of the people.

This is a warning to this Government, if you do not act in the best interest of the masses we have no other alternative but to remove you.

You would have lost all integity and not deserve a second term.
