FAB-Magazine-Vybz-Kartel-found-guilty-of-murder-charges

In a courtroom in Kingston, Kartel and three co-perpetrators were convicted of murder.      In August 2011, Kartel along with other men conspired  to kill Clive “Lizard Williams” a 27-year-old businessman and local promoter. The juror discovered that Burton was lured by the rapper and his gang into Kartel’s home and then murdered with his body parts minced into pieces.

Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is a popular Dancehall rapper known for his violent and X-rated lyrics. He was arrested in 2011 and charged with murder for luring Williams to his home to answer for two illegal guns that had gone missing. Williams disappeared and authorities never found his body, but recovered a text message from Vybz Kartel’s phone saying that the man was chopped up into “mincemeat.”

The high-profile trial was under tight security, with Jamaican police in riot gear protecting the courthouse and barricading streets outside.

The trial ended with the strangest turn, with a male juror arrested on Tuesday for trying to bribe the jury foreman into acquitting Kartel.

Hopefully the murder conviction for Vybz Kartel can serve as a wake-up call for the violent sort.Especially high-ranking personalities who believe they can evade the law.

The artists are realizing that they cannot be a bad man and an entertainer” said Dennis Howard, author of the book Rantin from Inside the Dancehall.

Vybz Kartel’s, his fans have remained supportive despite the rapper’s murder conviction. Several fans were spotted holding signs in support of the rapper, who has strong followers among the Jamaican slums.

    Hi Damilola Eshun;
    We have no slums in Jamaica as quoted in your article below! We have poverty there just like you have in Africa and we have stupid africans there just like the many in Africa! Vybes is a foolish black man and he needs to be put away because he killed is own brother over guns that no black people produced, not a good influence for Jamaicans and Africans in general. I think you should get your facts straight, pay us a visit and see for yourself how we live. Your British vocabulary is not appropriate in addressing poverty in any society! Vybes Kartel is a very poor excuse as an entertainer and role model just as many advertised on FAB! You’re supposed to be a circle not a square deciss trying to fit into your masters world, embrace your identity as the blessings and not the curse! Long live mother Africa. We are your same brothers and sisters that your forefathers sold to the WEST! Remember that!

    “Vybz Kartel’s, his fans have remained supportive despite the rapper’s murder conviction. Several fans were spotted holding signs in support of the rapper, who has strong followers among the Jamaican slums.” No wonder why this is being happening to us!
