The Dudus Connection

Things are starting to unravel in Jamaica, as the drug money link between dons and politicians,  starts to get the media attention it deserves.

The United States want Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke – the notorious don man of Tivoli Gardens, West Kingston for trafficking drugs and guns.   But will the ruling Jamaica Labour Party give him up?

The connections are many.   They are outlined here and include,

a construction company called Incomparable Enterprises, where Dudus is a partner was awarded three govt contracts by the JLP valued at $ US  400 thousand.

Another contract worth a $US 150,000 contract, was given to transport materials to Riverton City landfill.

Dudus heads up the entertainment company Presidential Click which organises the very popular Champions In Action event.

Police say that Dudus also owns several residences, including this house in Plantation Heights, Red Hills, St Andrew.

This is Dudus's house in Red Hills

This is Dudus's house in Red Hills- looks real nice

This house is a far cry from the living conditions of the residents of Tivoli Gardens, people are said to fear him and love him.  I’ve written more about passa passa in this blog post - a dance he keeps which is not subject to the 2am noise laws.

Living conditions in Tivoli are not so lavish

The former national security minister – Peter Phillips from the opposition Peoples’ National Party has spoken up on the issue, predictably saying the government should give Dudus to the Americans.

So what’s stopping them?  Dudus’s money has bought him alot of power in the JLP, will it be enough to protect him?

    I AM A JAMAICAN LIVING IN NORTH AMERICA FOR MANY YEARS,WHILE I WAS LIVING IN JAMAICA I HAD CLOSE TIES WITH THE THEN RULING PNP PARTY.I HAVE FOLLOWIED THE POLITICS IN JAMAICA MOST OF YOUTHS WERE ARMED BY THE SAME POLITICIANS THAT IS PUTTING THEIR HANDS IN THE AIR AND WONDERIGING HOW COULD JAMAICA HAVE REACH THIS STAGE WITH THUGS ROAMING THE STREETS WITH GUNS.THEY THE POLITICIANS ARE THE ONE WHO CREATED THESE MONSTERS.I DONT THINK JAMAICA SHOULD HAND OVER DUDDUS,IAM IMPRESS WITH THE WAY HE CONTROLS HIS ENVIORNMENT.I THINK HE SHOULD BE THE PERSON RUNNING JAMAICA.I HAVE NEVER MET HIM,BUT IAM VERRY IMPRESS WITH HIS LEVEL OF CONTROL IN THE GARRISON COMMUNITY OF JAMAICA.WHO WOULD THINK THAT THE DAY WOULD COME WHEN YOU COULD LEAVE ARNETT GARDENS AND GO TO TIVOLI TO WATCH A MATCH WITHOUT ENDING UP DEAD.

      Shut your mouth the man is a dangerous crimminal who is liable to kill and rape your mother and daughters.

    • angry jamaican on

      this person is actually a complete and bloody idiot who has not a clue or is involved in the criminal activity themselves. do you live here in Jamaica and see everyday the death and misery caused by these heartless criminals. please shut the fuck up and stop talking all that bullshit. You are one of the people that give others the reason to think that Jamaicans endorse criminality and death.

    • TheGreek on

    • mountblu on

      It would appear you have not met a good teacher.Writing,grammar,spelling is learned in elementary school and it would be a good place for you to start.
      These thugs are armed by the same politicians seeking to kill him(Dudus)If the government had any spine they would simply mow down these thugs and make the streets safe again.
      Jamaica was once the pearl of the caribbean and these crooked politicians have reduced it to a joncro beed.
      I will pray for Ja. continuously.

    I understand that you appreciate the security that a man like Dudus provides to the local area.

    But at what cost? Is there a wider picture here that you should be taking into consideration?

    Why is Dudus feared? What has he done to get to where he is today? Should his bad man status make him untouchable? should any corruption and collusion with the politicians be overlooked? Just so you can watch a football match in peace?

    • dasimms on

      I think you miss the point i am making.We need more people like dudus in jamaica.Do you understand that every youth in Jamaica wants to be a moviestar,the country is at point where no one listen.Just imagine a company without a manager.

      • Maliki on

        You really have no point. You’re just making silly comments that have been birthed out of ignorance. Managers don’t kill their works and push fear into their hearts so they get the work done. If you want Jamaica to be like Cuba then you go live in Cuba with the damn cubans! But not even fidel pulls the crap that Dudus and his gangs do!

      • peace be unto us on

        There is logical point to what you’re saying. How do you think for a moment that this man run the country in a positive way for the kids to be like him when they grow up? How is it possible that some wanna be bad man hide behind human beings to live longer? if he is bad why dont he apply to go to IRAQ and prove to his fellow men that this is what you do to be that moviestar you want to be? The hard work you have to sacrifice in life to be where you want to be.
        Jamaica need right now a strategy like Sadan & Castro. No man hold my country atbay> no man has the power to tell anyone in my country to use the bathroom and when or why to kill anyone unless they have been found guilty by a jury of they’re peers. With all respect to you sir/madam, what you’ve said is pure garbage and it’s people like you makes it hard for me to go back to my homeland and raise my kids. Just trying to get away from the things we have to encounter in the USA (GOD BLESS USA)you and your counterparts (like buju)makes hard work seem like a death sentence.

      • Sickle on

        Agreed.

        Jamaica.. The Caribbean On A Hole Needs Persons Like Dudus To Rule Instead Of The Incompetent Politicians In Some Islands.

        To Maliki.. You Dony Seem To Get The Point… IF EVery Youth In Jamaica Wants To Sing And Be A Movie Star.. Who Go RUn The Banks.. STart The Buisnisses N Maintain The Jamaican Economy?

      • Kimberly Covington on

        With the title of manager he should have control of his country. The destruction of the only real resource (the tourist industry) should be considered. In the past few weeks I was considering enjoying the sunshine in Jamaica but because of the nonsense in Kingston I will go to Bermuda in October. Thanks allot!!!

  5. muchuwife on

    I THINK THEY SHOULD LEAVE DUDUS IN JAMAICA WHERE HE BELONGS….WHAT IS JUSTICE IN AMERICA IS NOT JUSTICE IN JAMAICA!THEY RELEASE RAPIST LIKE COMMON SHOPLIFTERS BUT THEY ALWAYS WANT TO PUNISH EVERYONE ELSE(ESPECIALLY JAMAICANS) TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW FOR ANY CRIME THEY CAN PIN ON YOU!!!!IF AN AMERICAN MAN WAS TRAFFICKING DRUGS AND GUNS TO JAMAICAN, AND JAMAICAN DEMANDED AN EXTRADITION…..AMERICA WOULD LAUGH AT THEM, THEY PROTECT THEIR OWN AND WE SHOULD TOO

    • american leader on

      WHAT ALL OF YOU STUPID ASS PEOPLE FAIL TO REALIZE IS KILLER DUDUS CAME ALL THE WAY FROM JAMAICA TO KILL MY SISTER AND HER BOYFRIEND IN FT.LAUDERDALE. THEN HE PUT THEIR BODIES IN THE TRUNK .. NOW U TELL ME WHY THE HELL WOULD U WANT MORE MEN LIKE THIS IN YOUR COUNTRY???

    • where is beautiful Jamaica on

      you go & protect him so he can kill you child or parent when ever he feels like it. America punishes their own, Jamaica didnt. He is living like a king & not being punished for what he did.

  7. andrew on

    if this man leaves jamaica,our economy will continue drop because crime and violence will increase and if something was wrong with, then so many people would’nt be on his side. face it, this man does more things for the country than the politicians so what will happen without him.

    • Maliki on

      So many people are on their side because Jamaica has fallen into a state of stupidity! a state they need to fall out of of it. I can’t believe the country i’m so proud to say that is my home thinks this way.

    • where is beautiful Jamaica on

      the country was doing great before was even known. he helped the country to drop so the stupid Jamaicas can depend on him. it people like you that makes me regret being a Jamaican.

  8. RRRRR on

    Love All, Hate none.
    What are you referring to as mental slavery, think about the millions of people Dudus has enslaved by running a communism within jamaica, are you even privy to what’s taking place behind the walls of TG. The Jamaican government has created a monster which has single handed infested the country with major corruption and all you can think about is the freedom to watch a football match. What about the freedom for contractors to bid on jobs and not have Dudus’s so called contractors have all the jobs because of the fear he drives into people…what about the freedom to have “u ooman an dudus an him fren dem nuh sen man come fuc har because he’s the so called don” These are the type of things and many many many more acts of evil that takes place in TG and around Jamaica by the hands of Dudus. So stop follow the hype and sit back hold a medz, per say and consider the greater good. Taking Dudus to face the music won’t solve all the issues Jamaica (MY COUNTRY) has but it will surely be a step in the right direction. What ever happened to promoting the greater good?

    • mm on

      mi linky,according to your opinion that you stated earlier, am 100% supportive of it because our country and our standard of living is very low in terms finacial income and acdemical wise and to see a man ruling people and telling them what to do, is like the slavry days has’nt gone as yet but fi real as a prime misnister he should know that the people who live in various areas are facing difficulties by paying money for notthing and residents of different community of to work hard for their money and to just give him just like that, thats madness and a matter a fact mi beter left it deh soh.peace out

      • Tammi on

        People dont seem to realize that this is slavery. All they have done is replce the white masters with blacks.Its ignorance pure and simple. Ignorance to the point that you don even relize you are in chains. At least the slaves rose up against their masters.

    • daniel on

      You say all this like the americans,you have no prove but accusation can you prove all this allegations..the americans just accused him just like you do,but the hundred of people who support him are not fouls,let the americans prove thier case thats all

  9. garfield on

    wake up my people ,and face reality jamaica is heading in the wrong direction.from ever since we get our independence.we don’t have a government that have things in control,more than these monsters who have killed people throughout the island for years. first thing the police force is corrupt whichsoever party is in power they only pay attention to their party supporters while the others perish,and the country go deeper into poverty

  11. Todd on

    people don’t be fool the boss bigger than the prime minister and the govern general if unno want Jamaica to be like Gaza or Haiti touch him lolololololololol ahhhhhhhhhhh sah

    • Maliki on

      I’m sorry to tell you Mr. Todd but I actually think Jamaica is already mentally like Gaza and Haiti. And actually now that i’ve read all this nonsense i’ve begin to think that Haiti and Gaza probably are smarter than all of you. Because “dudus” is not the boss, God, our lord and saviour is the boss and when Dudus has to answer to him come his time, I want to see who ends up being the boss, and see if his “boss” mentality doesn’t burn in hell

      • beauty on

        yes maliki ur common was one of the most that made sense.Father God is the boss he run things and watches over his people.some of these people act so stupid praising man.i dont praise man i praise God.Todd why would u call a man a boss they kill and did so many wrongs to people.Todd ur an idiot.

      • YardMan on

        God don’t exist. And if he did please read the entire Bible, from Genesis 1 to Revelation and tell me how many people God killed, also tell me which race God kills the most. Please read the Bible. Dudus and God kills for the very same reasons. That is reasons with an s on the end.

    • where is beautiful Jamaica on

      with ur boss in power Jamaica is worst off than Gaza & Haiti put together. & ur just a damn fool. thats y you will never be a leader & will always be under dudus ass.

  12. dave rose on

    who in the PNP to say this gov. should give up dudus. didn.t they denie knowing Kennet Black? what happen to Tony Brown and George Flash when they where wanted

    • where is beautiful Jamaica on

      its not just the PNP. its us the people. my mom is living in fear beacause of dudus. Jamaica will do better with out him.

  13. mario239303 on

    dave rose – two wrongs do not make a right, we all know the PNP have no right to say anything as their hands are just as dirty as JLP – no difference there, but no good can come out of blaming one or the other.

    • where is beautiful Jamaica on

      I agree, but the blame right now is on dudus & bruce

There is no comparison, how much black people did Marcus murder?? You are not worthy of calling yourself a Rasta. Where in the teachings of His Imperial Majesty does it say you should worship murderers and gangsters??? Bun fyah pon man like you and Dudus. You did say you gon die for him right?? Well maybe you should.

    ras you are so full of shit its a disgrace to see you comparing the right hon MARCUS GARVY TO DUDUS A OUT RIGHT known killer i think you sould be the one sent to school so what if we have 100 dudus would that save our lovely country

  18. taurus on

    Dudus a di bosss!!! bless him up! there are three parts to jamaica. the good, the bad, the ugly!!the bad was created by all the politicians in jamaica from the early 80′s till now..both pnp and jlp. both governments armed the garrisons fi mash dem works!!! (used the youths dem) then the same politicians play games fi get rid of the same youths dem.!!!
    the good: Dudus send nuff youths to school, bring peace to “Jamaica” and is the “the real government” he has done more for communities than any politician in jamaica!!! There is a saying ” only the elites want to conquor the world, by any means” and a this rast a tell people from me a bwoy!!!!!
    the ugly: the same people who want dudus a the same people who created him for there use.. now them dun with him!!!
    Big up Dudus!! nuff respect and belssings!!!

    • Real Rasta on

      Another ignorant Yaady. Its because of people like you why JA ranks high on the illiteracy list. I think JA is second to some African country. How could Dudus have brought peace to JA when JA stays close to the top if not the top of the “Murder Capital Of The World” category? To the people on here bigging up dudus, I can only surmise you are profiting from his despicable activities. Otherwise why would anyone with a functional brain in their head would want to applaud and support a lowlife like Dudus?? I was in JA recently and I know things are hard, (I paid JA$1,000.00 for 4 mangoes)but sometimes you have to just do what’s right in the sight of the Almighty. And that sure isn’t supporting the likes of Dudus!!!! I Man no yaady but I Man Caribbean Rasta same way seen? I Man grandfather was a Yaady who left JA 80 somthing years ago and came to Belize. I still feel the connection and have been a Rasta for 30 years and feel the pain of my JA Family when people like Dudus murder another Jamaican. By the way I have been trying to find my JA family but have been unsuccessful so far. Anyone with the last name WARREN reading this please email me at [email protected]. I would love to hear from you. Jah Bless!!!

    • angry jamaican on

      Its hard to think that some of you so called men are so weak and stupid. Have man a tell you how to live. have you all a float like some bitches and dudus is your pimp. It would not be surprising if bad man a sleep with your women and you cant say nothing. worst yet since most of these criminals are now gay who knows what they are doing to you men who worshiping them. Punk ass bitches. Stand up for once in your lives and defend something that is right and stop condemning our island to be infested with shit i.e. drugs, guns, dons and extortionist.

  19. ESTEBAN AGOSTO REID on

    Interesting comparative images of Dudus’residence and the stalls of Tivoli Gardens !!

    • MAd on

      Those stalls are not of tivoli. they are of the the nearby coronation market area

    • Jayselle on

      @Esteban – yes, I’m laughing at them too. I would expect that the image for Tivoli Garden would be a house in any form – not a market stall.

  20. willyboo on

    dudus is the man who control the youth them from not killing each other ,thing the US goverment should leave him alone because what they are saying is not true.we need prove ,dudus is the real big man & we love him.

      blasted dunce. you do not deserve to breath air how yu one fool.

    I LEFT JAMAICA WHEN I WAS 8, BUT STILL SEE MY COUNTRY AS YESTERDAY. I DONT KNOW ALOT ABOUT DUDUS, BUT IF THE MAN HAVE TINGS UNDA CONTROL WHY TROUBLE HIM NOW. IT MUST NE SOMEONE IN HIS ORGANIZATION WHO DOES NOT WANT PEACE GIVE HIM UP. WHEN YOU INNA GANG SOMEONE ELSE ALWAYS WANST YOUR POSITION, BUT SAYING THAT TG UNDER CONTROL, PASSA PASSA NICE UP,(NO GUNSHOTS UNLESS AH DUDUS MAN DEM AH BUSS IT) I LIKE THAT IT SHOWS CONTROL. YOU LOSE HIM YOU LOSE THE CONTROL AND FOR SURE JAMAICANSWILL BE AT NO MECRY TO ANY GANG WHO WANTS TO MOVE IN. WHATEVER HAPPENS I HOPES IT FOR THE BEST. GOLDING I HOPE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DOING

      Let me ask you this then…have you gone back to your country since all this Dudus shit? I bet you fear your country like everybody living it because of all this Dudus shit.

    what is golding waiting for why this criminal is not arrested yet
    army and police your job is to provide security for the country security forces do your job help the jamaican people

    • Proud Jamaican on

      Wow I am reading all these different opinions and viewpoints to this case. What I don’t understand is why all you people that live in America but come from yard act like seh unnuh betta than the rest a dem out deh… You want Jamaica to send Dudus back to America to stand trial for crimes that the average American only get a few years in prison for, most with early parole for good behaviour and other such things…America is going to put this man away for life. Not excusing his crimes but from what I know and have heard this man is actually helping by employing people to work in many of his business ventures, so there goes a handful of people that will lose their jobs when he gets extradited back to the US, especially if there aren’t any strategic measures put in place to safeguard his companies from going belly up. He helps to send youths to school…wow why should you all care who pays or how the school fees are paid, just as long as the kids get an education. People Jamaica is what it is and always has been, before Dudus, it was Deebo, and Jim Brown and many others before him and there will be many others after him. Sending him back to America will not do this country any good, sometimes we have to protect the ugly and the evil for a greater good and yes the road to peace and comfort is not always a smooth journey.

  23. truth on

    It is very sad but it is true that politics has made this happen. However, people who say Dudus controls the crime in downtown Kingston maybe right. But on the other hand Dudus send the criminals elsewhere to rob and kill other people in places like Montego Bay and Clarendon. So the crime rises at an alarming rate. I feel very bad for the people in mental slavery that actually think that Dudus could rule Jamaica and stay and do what he has been doing. Remember Jim Brown he was burnt in his cell who do you think was behind it? The real “BIG MAN” not Dudus or any little shotta youth, the men who run Jamaica who decide when you come and when you go. Dudus time now!

    A lot of you guys making comments about this situation never been in the garrison community on a day to basis to know how these places run.If the Jamaican police can restore law and order then how comes so much people is dying daily.Mark my words take away dudus and see what the west will look like.There will be no law and order and because their is so much copycats ,every community is going to want to be namebrand.

    Dudus is no different a man than george washington (1st US president). Back then in 1775 “they” called GW a rebel an outlaw, is the same title them want to place on dudus. but a the best thing, why? bcuz a di same way GW did set fi him ting a di same way Prezi run fi him ting.

    an fi everybody that argue over the inequality between him an the ones that follow:

    IF U DONT WORK/HUSTLE/JUGGLE/DO SOMETHING U DONT GET PAID. it simple as that.

  32. X on

    Seriously, every order have a price. Talk about the greater good? Why not have all the bad man dem a eat from one source. Let them out make dem eat a road everybody suffer. Been To TG have fren deh. Leff me car open cause music a play and alarm will go off. nuff times. nobody no trouble you. Mr coke does nothing that the politicians themselves do not do. sorry except making promises and not fulfill them. Politicians do more harm than he does. and i am sure there are more politicians that deserve to be sent to the gallows before you even think about touching Mr. Coke. Crime will always be a monster and we do not have the resources or a proper police force to maintain calm and peace at the grass root level. But you have a man like Mr. Coke that set the order and maintain it and you want to give him up. At what price? we need to be careful.

    So we have a problem with fear. Fear of what? fear of order.
    If a man step out a bounds there are consequences. Will a man step out of bounds? no. Me naw violate cause you know say u mustn’t violate or else.
    But if you know you might get away, you might try.

    You know what we need to take this man from TG, for real. lets send him to Gordon House..

    I think they should turn this guy over to the US. It’s people like him who distroy our country. I am from East kingston and I have a daughter who’s grown and has never been to Jamaica. I am shamed I am can’t go back to my home town and show her where I grew up. The schools I went to just because of a few degenerates. Jamaican have always think we are better than everybody else. I think it’s time we take a look at ourselves.

    • kimchie on

      i agree with you. i have been out of jamaica for 7 years now and i’m so scared of all the curruption and violence that i dont want to go back. The original plan was to build up myself and return to build my home and business for my family there but i cant even do that. Instead i’m working on extraditing my family.

      Jamaica needs to look a the big picture and the long term benefits that handing over dudus will bring.
      1. send him to the US and risk a turf war while making a possitive step to crack down on curruption…(which like in the past we’ve recpovered from)

      2. KEEP HIM AND WATCH HOW THE US SLOWLY RETRACT ITS SUPPORT FOLLOWED BY CANADA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD’CAUSE THEY DONT WANT TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH CURRUPTION..TOURISM DECLINES…THE ECONOMY SUFFERS…DRUGS, GUNS,VIOLENCE AND DEATH INCREASE.
      CANT WE SEE THAT EVEN THE LITTLE COUNTRIES LIKE TRINIDAD ARE ALREADY BANNING OUR ARTIST FROM ENTERING THEIR COUNTRY BECAUSE OF ALL THE GANG VIOLENCE AND CURRUPTION? WHEN WILL WE STOP BEING SLAVES TO OUR OWN IGNORANCE?…. I’M ASHAMED.

        see that is the problem i dont support this dudus guy but why should the smaller countries bow down to the U.S. everywhere they go they want control, cuba cut ties with them and their tourism strives so what if canada cuts ties too its time we show the U.S to mind their own bussiness, where ever u go there will be fear there are serial killers pedofiles, murders and all in the u.s, u should be more afraid of living in the u.s they treat immigrants very unfairly, and they claim to have a justice sytem when they let these ppl out back into society to live next door to you, at the end of the day you know u can always go back to homeland

    Yow a which dudus dem a talk a nuh my king a couldn’t shortman highly unlikely dem a try tek garden man lightly dem better mine dem overcrowb dung a maddon

  37. MAd on

    the reality is that Dudus drives fear into the people around him to maintain his power. i cant respect a man who deals drugs and guns while he himself and his henchmen defiles young girls who are as young as age 12.

    my family had to leave our home in tivoli. we moved out of garden but rented the home we worked damn hard for to an old lady. Jah T (Dudus brother) seized the house for one of his woman. When we went to the most corrupt the hon. Edward Seaga for assistance he simply asked us who told us to leave tivoli. I have personally witness the murder of a friend by men from tivoli because my friends father is from matches lane they accused him of being an informer due to where is father lives.
    what about the woman who asked dudus to simply lock up her son for a time in one of the prison cells because her son was being rude. her son was taken from the cell and killed by dudus hench men who were coming from a raid and didnt know why he was in the cell. the cell he was placed in was the death cell. i.e. anyone placed in that cell was due to die.

    people may believe that there is law and order in tivoli…there is only fear….yes you can leave your car unlocked, no one will trouble it…..because people are well aware that if you steal in tivoli the perpetrator will be beaten or killed.

    I have see too many mothers having to send their teenage daughter to dudus because he or his men demand sex.

    What about all the business owners that are being extorted by dudus in the cross roads to down town area?

    dudus may run tivoli but his power spans most major garrison areas of the country this is due mostly to his ability to distribute drugs/guns coming in from the kingston wharves where 2/3 of the workers there are from tivoli and the former police commissioner can sign clearance for recent shipments of ak47s to enter the island without being checked. kgn wharves is a few meters from tivoli.

    has anyone even looked into the fact the the prime minister of this country is not allowed to occupy the jlp constituency office in tivoli. the doors are chained and only edward seaga is allowed to enter. The prime minister had to have his office located in payne land.

    rumours which are actually true:
    Dudus sent men to KSAC making threats….desmond mckenzie came out saying that it was untrue when the employees of the KSAC themselves had to call the police for protection. but then again D Mckenzie is from tivoli.
    Vivian Blakes brother was recently killed by thugs from tivoli under the guise of a robbery.
    today dudus has sent threats to the media houses to desist from carry the extradition in the media.

    there is a lot more to be said about tivoli and dudus….the politicians (seaga, desmond mckenzie etc) but not now.

    There is only three known avenues that can be taken.

    1. the corrupt politicians will find a way to kill dudus before extradition happens to protect themselves……this will cause war within the country and fall out with the US
    2. dudus will be extradited after police/military force battles his hencemen across the island
    3. dudus will decide to leave the island on his own and peacefully…..leaving a successor

    The most honorable Edward seaga must be shaking in his boots. It must be bringing back memories of 1992, like father like son, as just like his father dudus is wanted by the united states. It was feared that if dudus father sang like a bird then names like Edward seaga my form some of the beautiful melodies! So what did the minister do? He did wat anyone in his shoes would he captured and had dudus killed? Think of it, a day before he was supposed to be extradited, he was killed. Who gains? Seagas old ears must be ringing a loud melody in fact he must be very torment thinking of how he can help his buddy from being extradited or how he can let the same fate that befalled dudus father befall-ed dudus as well! Certainly for all the wrong Mr seaga did in his days he should pay for some before judgment day! building and Maintaining Garisons Supplying and Distributing Guns. Killing innocents an not so innocent people, you name it. The united states should pressure us to give him up infact they should give us a deadline!

    No wonder the Island is the way it is when you have people who suppose to know better or so we thought is bigging up a well known criminal,it does’nt matter how much good he’s done if his means are ill gotten the he should face justice. Have any of you ever stop to think how many lives have been ruin by drugs and gun think about it because the next one could be yours or someone close to you, he should be put to trial and if found guilty should be put to death.

  43. Jaime on

    What kind of people are the ones who say we should not arrest Dudus and extradite him. In the USA he will be tried under a sysytem where he will recieve no special favor. Some of the people leaving comments here obviously, don’t have a job or are educated enough to know how badly the international community, including tourists and most importantly foreign governments and INVESTORS are looking at this issue after the JLP promised transparency and change.The man is a known criminal.
    How many deaths has he been responsible for? Let us not continue to be known as backward, criminal-loving people.
    If he is not surrenderes to the US, the USA should refuse to issue any new visas to ANY Jamaicans.

    • mimi on

      Did you bring up TOURISTS… Let me tell you something honey, if there is turmoil, keep your ass at home. How this effects tourism is the LEAST on a residents mind. Yes, the country wont make as much money come tourist season… but these people will have to live with the consequences of what is done with this man on the DAILY. You think they give a shit what a tourist thinks?? You can’t lay on a Jamaica beach then take your ass to Miami!

      Honestly, EVERYONE makes some important points. You cannot call someone ignorant because they want this man to stay in Jamaica. If their neighborhood’s peace was orchestrated by this man, then maybe he did something no one else could do. Give them piece of mind.

      NOW! The most powerful reply was “MAn”s where we were given a description of the backlash to his power. this is somehing that no one else has touched about. You can’t shout yes or no without a reactionary excuse.

      My opinion, it’s never a good thing to have one person have so much power. That person becomes a tyrant— which from replies, I see that he is. He has mastered influence and power… no matter how you look at it, that is great.

      But to MAN’s comment. It is a shame in Jamaica when you have an issue, you do not go to the “real” government but to people like Seaga and Dudus. If this is the case, then extradicting him MAY NOT be agood idea, because the streets control the streets. And since thats teh case, even if the hierchy is maintained with violence, it has to be maintained.

        It is ignorance. what else is it? would you prefer for us to call it straight up being dumb as hell? Ignornace is the prettiest word to hide stupidity.

    Jamaica is in serious problems. we all should be aware of the fact that Dudus isn’t the only don in ja that traffic drugs and gun in and out the country. if the man done good for the ppl of TG give him the honor, but they shouldn’t try to send HIM alone to the US Feds. they need to fine all drugs kartels in Jamaica and send them too.

    Yo everyone a talk about the “peace” but has the murder rate declined in JA at all?

    We had the same thing in Ireland with the IRA controlling areas of Belfast where the cops couldn’t go in. Same story people a say they’re heroes cos they stop a little youth here and there for rob this and that and hold down a little order. But they do this by terror & intimidation which only sets people back, meanwhile they’re the ones doing all the big drug and gun deals and making serious money.

    It’s funny everyone who defend Dudus a burn fire for the politicians but they’re one and the same no?

    Respecting Dudus? Loving Dudus? Saying that this what Jamaica needs is why the country that is so bountiful with beauty and has so much potential has resulted in the ways that it’s in now. Dudus is not a man to be revered upon because he places fear in the minds and hearts of jamaicas. The only way to deal with such ignorance, and violence is to hand him over to the American Government because the jamaican government is doing nothing about it. Killing several hundreds of people and getting away with it? ridiculous? is this the same country that birthed the peaceful Bob Marley? What hyprocracy. I honestly hope mr. Dudus and all those other damn “DOn”s of jamaica continue to kill off all of your stupidity because thats clearly what you all want for jamaica!

The prime minister needs to govern, get the jdf with some police and go get dudus. this goon(dudus) is not doing anything for jamaica. go get him.

    When Seaga came out and condemned Dudus it simply was that we had reached the limit.

    If it wasnt for Omar Davies the barrier between Arnett and Tivoli would be still there and that did not involve no donmanship.

    bless up all i am not going to try to defend dudus because i do not know the guy but what i am proposing is this whether or not he has done the things he is being alleged to have done then who is to say , show me some evidence . i do get the point that some of you guys are supporting that we simply cannot allow a don to take over our capital city but i for one would like to know that as a borned and raised jamaican living in the us right now were to have being still living in jamaica and the u.s wanted to extradite me for alleged crimes then my government to whom i pay taxes and to whom i elected would not just allow them to wisk me off to the u.s to answer these charges without the due process of law . as a person who has lived for many years of my childhood in kingston and a lot of my life in st andrew i was used to not being able to go to school because of voilence and having to duck bullets or walking for miles because of bus strikes and such . and now most of that are just things of the past now everyone who are against this man if you were living in these communities you might have understood what these people are trying to tell you the protection and security that this man is offering is better than the governments and until the government which is ran by dishonest politicians and crooked cops (which i must add are all on the take) are cleaned up then kingston will have to be ran by duds or someone like him. rebellion is what gave us our independence from england and we will always need freedom fighters when the powers that be are oppressive ,when new kingston doesn’t want anything to do with kingston except to take it’s moneyand when there is two kinds of justice for the rich and the poor. please open your minds and name calling will not win an argument it only stirs bitterness keep the debate clean we all love our country and mean good for it the only thing is e want to go about it in different ways but the system doesn’t work . when some of you are detained for just going to a dance or wlking on the streets late or for living in a certain area , going to the shopping arcade s , when you have to be hugging a utility pole in downtown kingston for hours because the police told you to or lay on your face fretting that they are going to kill you then if you have ever suffered such indignities come back and tell me that the security forces hld better peace than dudus in downtown kingston.

        Thats OK. You can keep DUDUS. We have Buju Banton. The Due Process is innocent until proven guilty. All we are asking is for DUDUS to answer to the alleged alligations. If he has nothing to hide, comply with the judicial system. We have no problem issuing a bail and he will not be convicted until the case is tried/ and or presented to the jury. I am afraid to say that DUDUS has something to hide and is running. Not only that, he is being protected by a corrupted government system where there is no hierachial level of leadership. Don’t worry, sooner than later America will capture DUDUS and Jamaica. Apparently, Jamaica is lacking leadership and cannot direct herself. She needs a sense of direction. Enjoy your independence as long as you can.

      Embrace your intelligence. Even if Dudus is innocent he still needs to face the court system. If his allaby is that he has never travelled outside of JA-Present the evidence. Dont be a coward. Come prepare.

  61. so sad on

    first, i want to say, dudus is not some great man, he is not marcus garvey, prophet, president, or whatever u chose to call him, he is a KNOWN criminal, murderer, rapist, and drug dealer.. The power he has now comes from all those things mentioned! years of murders and drug dealings have made him who he is! So now that he has all this money and so called power, and this SUBTERFUGE control over the country, doesn’t make him a good person!..THIS POWER JUST PUTS HIM IN A BETTER POSITION TO CONTINUE DOING HIS DIRT..

    Second, men like dudus is not what jamaica needs! if u subtract dudus and his counterparts and every one like them, and replace them with good hearted and intelligent leaders, you will see the difference.

    third, its really sad to read most the comments here. you guys that say big up dudus, and he is what the country needs…its just testimony that we need new leaders to set a better example for the youths, so they can understand that what dudus have done and been doing is pure crime.. not some prophet-able act! simply put.

    and last, i hope america goes down there and take him out of the hole he is hiding in..like saddam..and if there is any resistance, (which wont last too long), just a plane bomb over TG will settle all nonsense….and i hope american military settle in and forcefully demand peace and control….in all those so called bad areas..
    this might allow the county to start over and be what it is capable of being..a beautiful island of sunshine and green land…and beautiful black people…

    I would not want to be in Mr. Cokes shoes if and when the US Marshals are given orders to bring him to justice. The Marshals will not be intimidated by pseudo bad men who can’t shoot straight. Any resistance will be met by overwhelming force. Or they could simply take him in a quiet unguarded moment.

    I was born in Jamaica, but left at a very young age, over 50 years ago. It is truly a shame what has happened to the country. We used to visit every couple of years, but due to the crime, corruption, road conditions and general air of incivility, we have not been back since 2001.

    When my parents pass on, their house will be sold and we will no longer have any connection to Jamaica.

    People get the government that they deserve and a corrupt people should not be surprised that their government is corrupt to its core.

    Maybe if Jamaica is nice to England, the English government will consider recolonization. That seems to be the best hope for a beautiful island, populated by people who are rapidly losing any sense of hope.

    America pays the cost to be the boss. They will have their way no matter what Bruce she or try. Dudus is nowhere close to the status of Manuel Noriega or Pablo Escabar and look at them now. America backs the IMF funding that our goverment live on. Money is power-America is money. We may not like it but that’s the way it is. I suggest Dudus take a trip to Cuba if he want’s to survive this. In times like this, he needs a friend like Castro.It will cost him dearly, but he can retire comfortably there as long as he can pay his way. In no way am I condoning what he does, but there is a people factor that needs to be considered. Anarchy will ensue and political war will escalate over this if wih nuh tek wih time draw wih hand outa lion mouth.

    It is a sad day, when we Jamaicans should look to the devil for peace and security. Jamaicans have always been a GOD FEARING PEOPLE.

The plain reality is u refuse to here the plight of those who have been raped, killed and robbed so this man could live like a KING. He (Dudus)will continue to feed some of u misguided fools sweet Karrot Juise that will poison u in the end. It is so true that every dog have his day and some of the politicians in Jamaica who created this mess; there time will come.

    Jamaica no man is greater than the creator, have some faith and do the right thing. I understand their is a price to pay, but u cant built on a foundation of lying politicians and crimminals. Jamaica, the God we serve is talking to US, please!please! just listen.

    How can you embrace a man that uses 12 years old girls for his optimum sexual pleasure to say the least.This man is not a “president”,he is a disguised criminal.Away with him and his condoners.

  72. Coruption on

    Hmm i find this info on the net. Plz read!!!!!

    his is a copy of the famous letter which issaid to have started the DOJ investigation.

    Re: Violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA)

    Attorney General of the United States of America
    Honorable Eric H. Holder
    United States Department of Justice
    950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
    Washington, DC 20530-0001

    Dear Mr. Holder,

    I wish to share with you a matter that appears to be a violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) of 1938, 22 U.S.C. § 611 et seq.
    This matter has potential significant implications with regard to National Security and thus my desire to share the pertinent facts with you.

    Specifically, I am making reference to registration # 5864 filed by Manatt, Phelps and Phillips on behalf of the Government of Jamaica (GOJ) through Mr. Harold Brady, of Brady and Company, Jamaica with the National Security Division/Counter Espionage Unit of the US Department of Justice.

    The contract which is of public record was executed on Oct 1 2009 and it was filed on Nov.2 2009. The signatures were Susan Schmidt, Partner of Manatt, Phelps and Phillips and Harold Brady acting as a Consultant to the Government of Jamaica (GOJ).

    The parties mentioned appeared to have violated the FARA by not declaring the extent of their lobbying activities and also the source of the funds for their lobbying efforts.
    Based on evidenced gleaned from a private investigative service, it would appear that the lobbying effort was financed by Mr. Christopher Coke (a.k.a “Dudus”) who has been named by the US Department of Justice to a list of “consolidate priority organization targets” which includes persons the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) says are the “world’s most dangerous narcotics kingpins”. Mr. Coke is a US fugitive and he has been indicted by a Grand Jury in the Southern District of New York. (Please see Exhibit 1- Indictment of Christopher Michael Coke)
    The apparent criminal violation of the FARA is also suggestive of money laundering as the senior partner in the Manatt, Phelps and Phillips law firm, Susan Schmidt visited Jamaica in 2009, met with Mr. Christopher Coke knowing he was a US Fugitive, the Hon. Daryl Vaz- Jamaican Minister of Information and Mr. Harold Brady. The law firm Manatt, Phelps and Phillips then received from Mr. Coke the sum of US $49,892.62 as an installment towards their legal lobbying fee of US$400,000 per annum. This installment was given to Manatt by Mr. Harold Brady who was then promoting himself as a consultant to the GOJ.The funds originated from Incomparable Enterprises Limited a Jamaican Corporation owned by Mr. Coke and was laundered through the “Tourism Enhancement Fund”. This amount was issued on a check drawn on a Bank of Nova Scotia Account.

    Ms. Schmidt thereafter met with the Hon. Bruce Golding- Prime Minister of Jamaica at Jamaica House. The signature of Ms. Schmidt on documents filed with the US Department of Justice cross reference to the signature of a similarly named individual in the Protocol Directory at Jamaica House.
    It is apparent that Mr. Christopher Coke is very benevolent to the GOJ and its members.
    Indeed Mr. Harold Brady hosted at his home a party for the Jamaican Attorney General the Hon. Dorothy Lightbourne, with the source of funding for the celebration being Mr. Coke.

    Based on evidence gleaned to date and my enquiries with the Southern District of New York, this case may be currently subject to an “Obstruction of Justice” Investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.).

    Manatt, Phelps & Phillips is a large sophisticated “AV” law firm and is certainly aware of the intricacies of the FARA. How could they have claimed to be an agent for the “GOJ” when the so called consultant, Harold Brady is denying his association with the law firm?

    Further, the attached newspaper articles demonstrate that the Jamaican Prime Minister- the Hon. Bruce Golding was unaware of the fact that the Manatt, Phelps and Phillips law firm was representing Jamaica and lobbying on behalf of Mr. Coke.
    You will note the Observer Newspaper article of 3.18.10 that indicates the Jamaican Minister of Information- Hon. Daryl Vaz, as being perplexed about this contract between the “GOJ” and Manatt, Phelps & Phillips in which he suggested that no contractual relationship of this type exists.(Please see Exhibit 2- Jamaican Newspaper articles).

    I would like the Manatt, Phelps & Phillips law firm specifically Charles Manatt and Susan Schmidt to be sanctioned for the deliberate misstatements to the US Department of Justice and for Mr. Harold Brady to be investigated for criminal violation of the FARA.

    It is unacceptable, unethical and dangerous for a Manatt lawyer to have met with Mr. Coke in Jamaica knowing he is a US fugitive who had already been indicted by a US Grand Jury. Also, of paramount concern is the fact that the law firm Manatt, Phelps and Phillips did not sufficiently declare the nature and focus of its lobbying efforts on behalf of the “GOJ”.
    It would appear the law firms real client is Mr. Christopher Coke who has been charged with conspiracy to distribute cocaine and marijuana and conspiracy to illegally traffic in firearms.

    so you rather innocet people to be killed, kids holding & shooting guns, Jamaicans living in fear just so you can have the LUXURY of watching a football game two blocks away from you? you must be one of dudus goons.

    Hi I personally think that the whole of Jamaica should be run by the briish queen .Else it would not be corrupeted by the two parties that are fighting against this man.Yes there is wrong and right. I usaully rest in tivioli and it’s not a problem. I do feel sorry for the poor locals who as to go and rob other people in other community for food. leave dudus
    in jamaica.As a jamaican living in u.k. I am married to someone frm gardens.most of the poor area of kingston needs a face lift.PNP JLP fixe up jamaica. you make white man an chinse an indian want to run business in a lovely country that belongs to the natives . leave dudus alone .

  75. ms british on

    Yes i guess every day another young youth is dying in kingston or adult as a cross fire. Each community is fighting
    against each other we are now living in the 21st century. please stop this war. yes it’s bad that dudus as a lovely house up in red hill’s. but what about the rich people who could’nt give a dam about the poor . yes god is powerful but. jamaica you really. need a good government to run that country. look i am jamaican parents an i have travelled global world wide an it’s bad to see other caribbean island that is well clean up an not corrupet like my own island jamaica.PNP JLP make jamaica a better country for ur tourism.

    After reading this blog I realize that our problems are much deeper than we think.Mad I strongly agree with every word you say and its good to know there are still sensible Jamaicans.The minds of the people are so corrupt and enslaved that they thinks a man that gave their kids guns to go out shoot fellow Jamaicans,rape innocent young girls sell drugs to youths, is a president or compare to Marcus Garvey or God.Those people need to read the bible and take note to what happen when people start worshiping false God and idols.What happen in Hati is the least to what will happen in Jamaica.

    The only thing can save us is prayer.

  79. Ms God Bless on

    You guys could say all you want to say, lets face reality USA wants Dudus, So unless Jamaica is producing not just guns and bombs but war planes big like the USA wise up!! cause alot of innocent people are gonna die when they come to take him. Yes whatever you guys want to say about him being president, send the kids to school, make you guys eat, an all is quite interesting but what do you think it means to a big country like the United States Of America? Nothing. So everyone will have to give account for his or her own life, my suggestion make God the head of your life cause nobody is next to him. He rules, reigns, conquers shut down who he wants to shut down whenever he wants to shut them down. Be bless!!

  80. Craziness........ on

    Dudus should be sent to America, no questions asked, and be put in front of a firing squad……

    He needs to be used as an example for all those who thinks they are bad and above the law.

    The crime rate in JA would drop if the so called bad men realized that it will not be tolerated.

    Send Him……

  81. susan brown on

    It is sad that these criminals are allowed to take over this beautiful country, burn down police stations and hold people against their will.The polititions should all be put in prison, they ar the ones who built these areas,supported them with the ” ammunition” they need to succeed in their criinal act.Now these built criminals are turning against them. i think we should do all we can to rid theociety of thes hoodlums.

      Good at least dudus and his followers will be made to pay dearly for the crime they have committed in my country. This man is evil and should be put to rot in serpent prison for ever and ever. I ask dear lord that this man be cut off from the luxuries of his good living and that his days be short, and that his foot soldiers may be cut down from their ruthless quest to destroy good people in Jamaica and I pray that dudus ill-gotton gains will perish before his very eyes. I also pray that all the pain that he and his followers have inflected on other will in turn be their pain that ultimately lead to their demise. Lord do not forsake Jamaica in our need and ask that you answer the pray set before you …. thank you lord.

  83. maggie on

    First @ may pen on November 29, 2009: you are an IDIOT.

    IF the things they say about him is true…Doodoo is more psychologist than most of you realize. He KNOWS his people in Tivoli Gdns. He has studied them; his father was part of it (& DIED due to the same stupid belief that he was ALL). Doodoo KNOWS that when people have NOTHING – ANYTHING you give – no matter how harmful, small or of low value – it magically earns value. People in Tivoli admit they have been lacking in even the basic necessities – food, shelter, schools and most importantly, necessities for their children, they will show gratitude to whomever they BELIEVE provides it. Few will look or CARE where or how he gets the money to provide it. We can ALL sympathize with wanting to feed one’s children. However if what they are saying is true…to pretend that he is a good man is a load of crap & therefore, Doodoo is not being protected by anybody so much as he is a coward hiding behind people who are starved of any type of opportunity to provide for their families. He provides them with a roof for their shanties (he’ll make sure they NEVER leave Tivoli or get enough opportunity to get out – after all he needs to be BIG man in town!!!!) and they oblige by making him a “President” they fear) And with all the talk and rationalization – All the residents of Tivoli & wherever else DooDoo operates, know wrong is wrong. They can’t admit it but they are ALL afraid – just as the prime Minister was Afraid before he was forced to do the right thing. And pretending that you are not selling yourselves and your children is true Mental Slavery. Doodoo is NO Marcus Garvey. When your children, your food, your women, your ability to provide is being held hostage by ANYONE, people do what they have to do. It is easy to say what needs to be done by the residents, it is a whole other thing when it is your home, your children, your community in the direct line of fire. For some one – in fact a whole group of people to call a mere criminal “President”, it means he owns them, their men, their women, their labor, their daughters…!!!! Talk about mental slavery????? I don’t want man – be he white or black – to force me into slavery in such a way that I begin to defend his right to mistreat me, brutalize my community, rape my children and hold it over the head of my man. I don’t want slavery to be so sweet that at the end of the day of being beaten, I thank my slave master, agree with everything he does, stifle my conscience and participate in the ruin of my children and community. In other words – I don’t want to be ignorant & look like a clown; have my children forced to lie WITH him and at the end of the day – continue to live in the very SAME slum he found me in. Doodoo will get 2 or 4 out of Tivoli, then set them up to become criminals destined for jail & illegal execution just like his father was. Stop fooling yourselves. Everything for a time. He needs to give himself up before he puts the rest of you fools in jeopardy. If what they say is even moderately true…They will bomb you all out when they come to get him – Just for spite & for your foolishness! If DooDoo has all this money – how come Tivoli still in so much poverty. Oh! I forget – you can watch football!

    All of you who backing dudus are idiots, i want the americans to tie him to the back of a truck and draw him for miles, he is an extortionist, killer rapist and all that does not fall into the good category. He is a cretin and so is the people who are backing him including the police and the politicians. I hope they all die supporting a murderer.

    Well said every body but lets ask our self this question,where is the prove,the Americans cannot just other that the jamaican government hand over her citizen just like that,america will never hand over it,s citizen to nay country in the world by speculation.let they bring the prove to jamaica because they are also courts in jamaica that can try and persecute him,nobody should accelpt that we are all equal and created by one God why should americans be special always thats not fair,we should stand up to that.if dudus has committed any criminal act he should be judge and punish by the jamaican government not the Americans.Respect Jamaicans..

    The Dudus saga and more so how it was handled by Bruce Golding and his government is of great embarassment to our country.

    Bruce Golding and his little minions should resign and Dudus should face the courts of the US. If he has done no crime then he and Bruce Golding and their other minions should have no fear. Dudus and his lawyers will have the opportunity to prove their case. If there is no evidence then he will be set free but if there is mounting evidence he will be locked away for life.

    Dudus should call out the names of the shameless politicians and business people who are in drug conspirators who have tried hard to block the extradition against him. This includes first and foremost the most dishonorable Bruce Golding who should RESIGN right now. He is not only a politically incompetent individual but he has no credibility left.

    Golding is a big embarassment to our country and his actions show how corrupted our political culture is. Our politicians are in bed with drug dons!!

    Dudus should give himself up to the Americans so that he may live to expose our sweating politicians and business people who are involved in drugs. Stop the killing of hard working Jamaicans! Give yourself up Dudus and save our country from more mayhem and blood!

    I am a Jamaican living away from home and I am as mad as hell with the PUNKY PM for his incompetent handling of the Dudus matter.

  91. angie from st maarten on

    what is going on our beautiful island is a shame and disgrace. Every country have their own little sores to deal with. Some of the comments made are from ignorance and without proper thought to the repercussion and how irrelevant issues as these have on our island. Many fail to comprehend true peace will only come into effect when Yahshua establish His kingdom. Some people do have dudus as god but there is only one true Elohim and the first commandment declares thou shall have no other elohims before me. He also said my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Every man that rise and think he is great must fall. Lets look at a few, Belshazzar, Alexander, Hitler,Moussilini, Charlemagne,Saddam, Milosovic,etc. All of them thought they would last forever but Yahweh only allow man to go thus far. If dudus was doing all good his alms would appear before Yahweh and he would be covered. But his bad deeds must now come to an end. Sad to say many will be affected but if they look to the one who created dudus their needs will be supplied. It is the end of time and more and more upheavel is on the rise this is just a shadow of what is to come. I will end in saying my cousin died by dudus as he said he was an informer to the enemies and the rest of the family had to flee Denham town and the house taken. Yahweh is good let us trust Him that this will end and soon.

  92. John on

    When corruption invades a country, it is worse than any foreign enemy. Remove corruption from the politicians and most of society will live by the law created. This is not a one man problem, but a result of a system. The British rule was not the greatest, but the local government had a higher power to answer to. Without accountability you have corruption. Perhaps Jamaica’s solution can not come from within, but with help from others….

  93. phillip lyons on

    “I too weep for Jamaica”. I left Jamaica in 1971 to seek a better life, but my roots are very very strong. My family has been in Ja for more than 500 yrs, that’s more than many can claim – so I am very Jamaican. I grew up in a tropical paradise, crime was almost non existent, my own children will never know the beauty of THAT Jamaica.
    So I too weep when I see politicians recruiting gangs and criminals, just to seek power for their votes.
    If only Jamaican politicians could be voted in on their merit, their policies and their individual performance.
    Come on people, put all energy into creating prosperity – then there will be no need to break the law just to get along or to be powerful.
    Live by the gun… (you know the rest).

    In black slave society every slave had a place to sleep, had food to eat, could sleep with their doors open if they had doors or comfortably in haysacks. Of course themaster could do what he wanted withthe.Yes the slaves had “rights” acording to Massa’s will, puropse and pleasure.
    I have a feeling that the people who are dazzled bythe “goodness” of Dudus are the ones we hear from time to time aplauding the goodnes of our past masters.

    i am a Jamaican, i dont agree in drugs and murder, but we are all innocent till proven guilty. The American government are far worst murderers than Dudus could have ever been. they should leave other peoples country alone and worry about their own. Dudus is in Jamaica he should not be extradited .. why is the whole world afraid of the Americans, is it because they are wicked murders. to date 100persons that was electrocuted in America has been proven innocent… they need to address the flaws in their justice system..

    Hello greatings
    I left Jamaica as a eleven year old child i use to walk home from school in Kingston i lived in prembruecall i hope i am spelling the name right my school was on sourh camp road some times i would eat my lunch money and eat JOS was the bus system at that time anyway i would walk home and people would stop and give me a ride i never had a problem on the street with anyone now i here cheldren are been killed by gan 227 people kiled in 6 months. Jamaica now has no law people use to send there money home they dont anymore beacuse the bank is sealing there money, there is no real law in jamaica like the old days when people went to jail in the old days they dont come back to the area they were ashame now they put it on there foreheads. this what i feel should happen any one caught with a gun shoot them on the spot and anyone with heavy drugs more than weed gets life. looking back the worst thing that happen to jamaica was independence, jamaica is the greatest island well used to be now the trene owns all the important companys in jamaica

  105. bigjoe87 on

    as for Mr Coke we all must pay for our crimes he made mone from drugs then stop take your family and send them to school so they dont become you but greed got the best of him so now its pay back time and some people got a problem with that and blame the US if you cant di the time dont commit the crime dont kill people the person you kill is some one else child but gangs dont care so why should we everything he owns should be sold and the proseeds go to the police officers that got killed in the line of duty the rest goes to to higher new officers for the force and police cars

  106. Nubian on

    It was right to extradite Dudus to America. If he stayed in jamaica he would have been killed by those politicians wanting him to keep their secret (like his father before him). Think – he may now be able to speak out against the corrupt rule of Jamaica, and perhaps the process of healing the great nation might begin.
    We are calling for politicains, England even Jesus to intervene and bring peace to JA, when it was our bad minded, greedfilled enslaved selves that began the mess we are in. Jamaican are not poor people. They just by generations stop caring for there own. Allowing the bitterness and greed to sweep in and overrun their communities. Then they erected churches to try to control (remember how we got the bible) it was when we were persecuted as slaves we were bought religon to smooth us into submissiveness. Think. Good people will do good bad people will do bad but good people need religion to do bad.

    We need to go back and stand up as 1 nation, to get rid of the dons from the parishs, look out for our neighbors chiildren. Grow then like our own. Take jamaica back to basics to rebuild it before we are overthown and once again brought under rule.
    I travel the world and I’m free to walk around, but when I hit jamaica, I am forced to live in fear and curfews. What happenend to our independence. What did we fight for. Because its not Jamaica as it is now.

    Noone is bigger than jamaica not Coke, Seaga, Golding.

    We need to take our country back!!

    It is easy to say u support dudus when he is paying for your childs school fee or putting that roof back on your board house. But has anyone of yu stopped to think where this money is comming from and how maney lives it has ruined. Drugs hurt people, families ,communities, countries do I need to go on. So you are saying its ok for dudus to sell drug and run guns to other criminal just as long as your child school fee gets paid. I forget whose quot this is but it goes something like this “No man is an island. No man stands alone. Each mans joy is joy to me. Each man grief my owwn.We need one another so I will defend, each man as my brother each man as my friend.” What does that mean to u people out there that praise dudus. Is it ok to hurt one family so u can uplift yours.There are so maney things I can do for a living that would provide me with much more money than what I am doing now but some of those thing would be illegal and immoral and unethical. They sa money is the root of all evil=that coupled with illiteracy and despear.He is playing on the despearation of a people Yes he will do such and such for you but at what cost.Do you people really care about your fellow country men. When I first move back to this country I had so much hope for this country. My cousin that lives here always discribed jamaicans as being like crabs in a bucket. I didn’t understand until lately. They don’t care about each other. They don’t care about other peoples pain. They just want to crawl out of the bucket even if it means crawling over others and leaving the others behind.Why did Jamaica want independence They were not prepared.Look at it this way.

  108. General Tacky on

    One Rootical Love to all of my people of Jamaica there and abroad. To all of you who love Jamaica and contribute through offering solutions I say ’nuff respect’!!! For those who would rather blame Dudus or ‘men like him’ as the real problem in Jamaica or for those who think the answer is in having a ‘Dudus’ lead Jamaica I say you are all the problem Jamaica has had from before Independence up until now. The very fact that you do not blame the same minds who were against Garvey, Democratic Socialism and Rastafar I and do not look to these models for your answers to our socio-economic woes speaks volumes. You will still praise Che Guevera and rebels in other countries while mocking and dismissing your own. These were movements based on true love, faith and respect for our nations’ spirit. You are cowards beyond reason and should stay away from Jamaica as long as you can so as to not add to the poison we rebels will have to clean up. It’s clean up time are you ready? The revolution is just getting started.
