Jamaica Gleaner Letters
published: Wednesday | November 26, 2008

LETTER OF THE DAY - Gladiator contests for death-row candidates
The Editor, Sir: I just had the pleasure/nightmare of spending six months on a project in Jamaica. While I had a rather pleasant experience over all, I have to comment on some problems. What is wrong with the majority of good people...

Break their necks publicly

The Editor, Sir: I think it is full time for the judicial system of my loving country to retake the reins of justice, honour, dignity and service for the good of the fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, wives and husbands, who mourn, every single day,...

Defending gay view on families

The Editor, Sir:It was with a great sense of pride that I completed reading your editorial of November 20. As a gay Jamaican I suddenly had a sense of pride and renewed faith in our local media. The headline and content of that article resonated...

Christianity and death penalty

The Editor, Sir:I suspect that by the time this letter has been printed Parliament would have already decided on whether to uphold the death sentence or not. Generally, the Bible is not clear cut on whether persons should be executed by the state or not.

Last-resort status of Carib Court

The Editor, Sir:In response to the column, 'Patrick Robinson and the Caribbean Court', by Rev Devon Dick, please note that Judge Patrick Robinson and Yugoslavia Tribunal are in The Hague, in The Netherlands and not Geneva, Switzerland...
