Just when you thought it was safe to read the news again, more Kartel drama dominates the headlines.
Created just days ago, a new Vybz Kartel Facebook fan page – rich with “suck yuh madda” comments – has already amassed well over 6,000 likes. This Facebook page, however, is not what you think it is. It seems to be aimed at waking up diehard Kartel fans from their slumber of hero-worship by posting numerous and provocative pieces of precious information that link their dancehall hero to the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams and other illicit activities.
Release of Information
Following his sentencing, convicted killer Adidja ‘Vybz Kartel’ Palmer has been dogged in the media by the repeated release of confidential evidence that was used prior to and during his murder trial. The leaks could have only come from those closest to the case, and in this instance all roads of speculation lead to the Jamaican Constabulary Force (JCF).
While the content released on Facebook has roused the court of public opinion, and may have an impact on Kartel’s pending appeal, the new revelations look worse for JCF than it does for the newly convicted Worl’ Boss. I don’t know if I should be more concerned about Addi behind bars or the person who created the page.
The content on the salacious Facebook page seems to support parts of a recent report in the Jamaica Observer that indicated Vybz Kartel’s badness has definitely reached the ten stage of evil.
‘We badness reach di 10 stage a evil
Ah nuh nuttin fi wi murder people
Get di guns, call di thugs, blood ah run
When wi pull up inna wi unmarked vehicle
7, 8, 9, 10 stage a evil’
– Ten Stage a Evil, Vybz Kartel
According to the Observer, Kartel apparently told his rags to snitches story on where to find certain career criminals and their tools in a last ditch effort to walk away from murder charges as a free man. Even if it is true, why would law enforcement reveal who gave the information? But JCF yuh nuh easy! #WhereTheyDoThatAt
When did we start publishing the names of informants? At least in the States they get anonymity, immunity, and in some cases, a new identity. JCF snitched on their own snitch? I doubt they’ll EVER get anyone to willingly come forward with information ever again.
If recent ‘leaks’ are to be believed, Kartel may be safer inside than outside. I believe if you dig long enough and hard enough you can trace his alleged Klansman activity back to both JLP and PNP. There is more in the mortar than the pestle, and if we’re going to release criminal information, we have to release ALL of it including how gangs are able to operate virtually untouched and so very well-armed while Jamaica’s body count continues to rise. It is not a secret how politics fuels and manipulates Jamaican gang violence to its own end. LEAK THAT.
The Actual Content – Vids and Pics and Pings, O My!
Anyone who is fluent in patois can parse out the text for themselves, if not, you may need to ask a friend for help cause Google translate will not work for you here. They make the former Alliance protégé look guilty as sin.
Then there are the hundreds of photos that are seriously damning to say the least – a headless body, a body-less head, a mini arsenal of various weapons, and personal photos with lovers, friends, and cronies. All of this combined really make you scratch your head with wonderment. But then again, if you pair all of this with his dj catalogue, it really paints a vivid and undeniable picture. But who painted the picture? Was it Kartel, with his own bloody hands, or was it JCF with its partially corrupt staff? I don’t think Dudus’ case had this many twists and turns in it – ah bwoy!
