Par­don Al Miller, the sac­ri­fi­cial lamb

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION & COMMENTARY -

THE ED­I­TOR, Sir: A STRANGE para­dox, shades of Ge­orge Wil­liam Gor­don, while the Gov­ern­ment is pre­par­ing an apol­ogy to the peo­ple of Tivoli Gar­dens. The courts have sen­tenced the Rev Al Miller to a fine of $1 mil­lion or 12 months in prison for bring­ing in Dudus, the cause of all the may­hem, with­out fur­ther blood­shed.

Al Miller is now the sac­ri­fi­cial lamb for oth­ers who should be wear­ing short pants. What if he had sought refuge in the US Em­bassy? We await the back­lash to see who will lose their visa.

Rev Miller is the only per­son be­ing pun­ished for the Tivoli Gar­dens mas­sacre. He should be hon­oured.

Min­is­ter Chuck, do not de­lay while pre­par­ing the apol­ogy to the peo­ple of Tivoli Gar­dens. Grant a par­don to the Rev Al Miller im­me­di­ately. KEITH HOBBINS khob­bins@cw­ja­
