'Drop Chris Brown' - Facebook page against R&B artiste being on Sumfest













A Facebook page has been created to protest Chris Brown's upcoming performance at Reggae Sumfest in the summer, but the promoters of the event are not deterred.
The page, 'Boycott Reggae Sumfest 2010 Unless They Drop Chris Brown!!!', was created last week after it was announced that the R&B singer would be on the show, which takes place in July. Almost 300 people have joined the page since its creation.
"We understand that people make mistakes and CB (Chris Brown) is probably a better person now. But during these turbulent times in Jamaica, the country needs good influences. There may be a time for CB in Jamaica, its just not right now," the creator of the webpage said about Chris Brown, who was sentenced last year to serve five years probation and to spend more than 1,400 hours in "labour-oriented service" for assaulting his former pop star girlfriend, Rihanna.

9 picked up in East Kirkland Heights in St.Andrew

AS the security forces continue their search for Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, nine persons were picked up in a massive operation in East Kirkland Heights, St Andrew, this morning.
Two of the nine persons are known to be very close to the West Kingston fugitive.
The pre-dawn operation comprised of soldiers from the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) and police officers drawn from several formations including NIB/Kingfish and the Organised Crime Division.
Senior detectives will interrogate the nine individuals, all of whom are from West Kingston addresses.

Dudus Coke Life story-

THE diminutive don was furious. Christopher “Dudus” Coke, known to his Jamaican followers as “Bossy”, or “the President”, had spent more than a decade nurturing the political and criminal contacts who had allegedly helped him to turn a Kingston slum into the fortress base of a gangland empire.
Now everything was threatened by what the 5ft 4in godfather described in the local patois as an “eejit ting” — an idiot thing. His younger half-brother, Leighton “Livity” Coke, had gone to war with the police.
A round of tit-for-tat killings in the spring of 2005 was threatening to get out of hand. Three police officers were dead and reports were beginning to leak from the Coke family’s Tivoli Gardens stronghold of a dangerous rift between the two half-brothers.

Entertainers mourn as Voicemail's Oneil Edwards dies

The entertainment fraternity is in mourning over the passing of Oneil Edwards, a member of the dancehall trio, Voicemail. Oneil, who was shot on May 9, succumbed to his injuries yesterday afternoon, while a patient in the Kingston Public Hospital.
 Immediately following his shooting, artistes had united for vigils at the Mandela Park in Half-Way-Tree and then at the KPH. Chief convener of the vigils, Mr Vegas, noted at the time that "the reason so many artistes have turned out at such short notice is simply because Oneil is a good guy. He isn't mixed up, he doesn't sing gun lyrics and he doesn't preach violence. The fact that this has happened to Oneil means that it could happen to any one of us."
