THE JUICE WITH JEM
Last week, Jamaican police officers armed themselves with paintbrushes to paint over the graffiti of Waterford, Portmore, St Catherine (commonly known as “Gaza City”) and any further trace of convicted reggae and dancehall artist Vybz Kartel.
Authorities who worked hard to secure a conviction for the former Portmore Empire head, hope to rid the community of violence and of Vybz Kartel’s followers.
“No more gaza city,” one cop told reporters. “It is also signaling the end of certain gangs in this community.”
Officers also said that several of the graffiti are of men allied to the Vybz Kartel gang, that were either killed by police or other rival gang members.
Kartel, is currently serving a life sentence following a guilty verdict early last month, will be eligible for parole after serving 35 years. According to Jamaica-Gleaner.com, Kartel could be locked behind bars for the next three decades and by then the Jamaican landscape will be strikingly different.
