White House Removed Vybz Kartel Fans Petition

President Obama and Vybz Kartel

The Obama White House just poured cold water on a petition launched by Vybz Kartel fans.

A day after the shocking guilty verdict in Vybz Kartel’s high profile murder trial, fans of the deeja launched a petition on Whitehouse.org asking President Obama to intervene in what they called an unfair trial.

But the White House has since removed the petition calling it a violation of their Terms of Participation.

The petition launched by ‘We the People’ called attention to aspects of trial they called unfair.

“Jamaican Dancehall Artiste Vybz Kartel did not get the fair trial he deserved. Evidence has been tampered with in his case by the law enforcement of Jamaica. He was found guilty before his trial started. Everyone deserves a fair trial whether they reside in the US or not. United States needs to investigate the corruption in this case.”

The petition only received 480 of the 100,000 signatures needed for it to get the President’s attention.

Vybz Kartel, born Adidja Palmer, Shawn “Storm” Campbell, André St John, and Kahira Jones will be sentence on Thursday in the Home Circuit court after being found guilty of the murder of Clive “Lizard” Williams.

The men are facing a life sentence for the murder.

Clive Williams’ body has yet to be found.

        this wasnt about crime or its location or residency, rather a human/civil rights issue-appealing to usa about it is very common thing. you damn peasant.

      • chercher

        He has never been to the US before his extradition and he has never killed a US citizens. All he was guilty is talking to someone on the phone in the US about drugs and gun running.

      • MusicLandWeLove

      • NYC one

        Porchia I agree ??????some of these people come on here and talk rubbish and garbage .

      • Porchia

        Yeah the mind boggles sometimes when i read some of the comments

      • NYC one

        Porchia they are trying to fit in that’s why . I grow up in music . I have been going to dance when I was 11 yrs old I can’t forget . My mom line us up one behind the other and spanks us for going . I have also attended several stage shows I know some reggae artist very well .

      • Porchia

        Hahaha reminds me of my dad…very strict and even at 18 had to be in by 11.30…was never allowed to go shabeens/dingy dark basement parties…otherwise woop and never grew up on dancehall music and don’t like. I just cannot get my head around these people that wants a murderer free,,,for all you kartel cronies I hope he never see the light of day again…He’s lucky it’s only one murder he is up for….He has gotten away with enough

      • NYC one

        Porchia I agree he put him self in this mess . What was he thinking . I know 2 people who did time where Kartel is that place is a hell hole . He will get good treatment him a artist trust me no one will bother him there . His woman have to bring food for him every day .

      • Porchia

        Prison shouldn’t be a bed of roses. As you said he will be ok…if its any consolation to his fans…The prisoners will be kicking his a$$ so kartel will be in heaven :-) :-)

      • carelessboutpeople

        LOL!!! right now you are the stupid one; you are Jamaican and you do not know the queen is the head of state; you live in England and a person of law but you cannot define law.. please!!! with the CEO talk on the Urbanislandz.com; because, we all know a lot of you ain’t living life like people back in Jamaica. girl the only thing America do for Jamaica is Aid to support the people. I live in America we have a loving president and if he was the head of state for Jamaica he would have take the petition in consideration. “we the people” united we come!!! ‘again’ law personnel they have the right to petition on the England website if they petition to the prime minister and do not get a response. The next in line is the prime minister boss who is the queen..# everyone who have a job knows there is always more than one bosses!!!

      • Gd

        Really we have a loving president ? You are living in a fairytale, Obama is a puppet for wall st and nothing else.more people got deported on his watch than bush,still have not lend a hand to Darfur struggles,but is ready to go to war for Zionist Israel.AND did not request a retrial for a black man that was wrong fully accused and executed by red necks in the south even though blacks protest and ask him to intervene thousands had signed the petition even prominent black leaders it was close to elections and he did not want to piss of whites in the south.

      • carelessboutpeople

        how many voting members are in congress 535. how many are colored 43; one man can’t change the world. if you been here a while, and know the history of the presidents; the 44 president have gotten more than what he had margin for because no matter where he turns hes getting a great fight. he’s not awesome but damn right hes ok. no child that been in america from the age 0-11 cannot get deported; call immigrant and ask about deferred action. if one live here for 4 year and been paying taxes and no criminal record can get working papers. that is why half the jobs in NY, NY, Philly is asking on their application if you will need sponsor. hes doing the best he can..

      • Gd

        If your over 10 and watch CNN and believe everything you are in too deep.
        Democrats and republicans is a show put on for the American people .the feds and the bankers run america and Obama is their puppet playing his part.

    • chercher

      No S***t…..

  • Gq

    If folks can’t speak proper English atleast write it properly…just saying…if black leaders could turn in their grave ,it can’t be for kartel alone, rather for the majority of black statistics that’s immersed in this thing called “hype”,and remember a bad workman always blames his tools….hence Jamaica is blaming kartel for lack of morality,as far as I can see the man is the highlight peak of their immoral practices not the cause, how about the people of Jamaica put corrupted politicians and lawmakers on 5 month trials and make examples of them in front of the world for all the injustice done to people over the years ,rather they pick bones with some entertainer that’s irrelevant and good ole Bruce was made to resign haha…west indies for u….And GOD BLESS AMERICA(due to intelligence)

  • Eeng Jamaican

    This is really stupid. With so much going on in the world today, why should the president of the United States of America get involved in something like this. The man has much more pressing issues to deal with internationally, and at home. Besides, as Jamaican people, we need to do a much better job of knowing which causes to get behind… this is not one of them.

    • chercher

      The fact of the matter is that there is not a damn thing he can do. The only person who can help him today is the Judge Campbell….not even the Governor General can help him.

  • NYC one

    Throw the book at him . I hope he doesn’t get the appeal .

    • Gloria Thompson

      B careful what your wishes r

  • Lynn Eng

    I just cannot understand why these people would think that the US President would give 2 cents, a petition is meaning-less whether it be to England, USA, Canada, France etc….these individuals that break the law in there own countries of birth should be punished to the full and have protest marches etc… only brings the eye of the world onto which shows the jamaican people in a bad light which in turn affects the whole country

    • Porchia

      Because them stupid

  • chercher

    So ignorant…..these people really believe Obama is their president.

  • real

    The whole thing is he is black and so many ppl follow him and worship him you think the white man like that no! The white man don’t want this so it’s time to take him down they say the man body has not been found neither remains so if he was here in the united states he would go free its only logic for all we know the boi could have ran off to another state country anything if he was here so that’s why they write the white house because these ppl have no physical evidence to hold him is this why they pushed back the sentencing date.
