  1. To everyone that’s here i’ll like to firstly say that if in any way that your accusing Vybz Kartel don’t, simply because no one here know’s for a fact whats up with this intire thing he could be innocent, “well to me he is” yet still i’m still not one hundred percent sure, why if im a singer big entertainer, go to do something stupid like this to spoil my reputation and get lucked up?” Vybz Kartel” is a very intelligent man, in school he was very bright he got his passes and from then he went on to doing something good with him self. I highly doubt that kartel will do something like this. Don’t mind some of the music he sings so what he have a lot of good music, (i love them all though) like Bad Reputation, Slew them like Jason, Yuh Love, School, Mama and a lot more. Vybz Kartel (Addijah parmer) sings the songs he sings because that’s the sort of music goes now and music is music whosoever lets that create their out look or influences then is very weak in mind or just dumb. We are not to judge but to me i say they should free up “kartel” because dancehall is missing he is dancehall, and everyone around the world not only in jamaica is missing him.

  2. kids what the hell wid u

  3. People would risk their life in ja for money r visa da police pro lay promise him visa, informer must dead,he wanted to duh road so live by da codes of da road. Dey tried to violate da man tings an dats how thug life guh. He his involve in gun argument do u think he is a saint.gaza mi she all da way.

  4. I can see why people don’t like Lamar he was Shaw Storm friend . This Lamar guy is a leach also they want passport and visa to travel when u mixed up with liars , losers and illerate that’s what u get . If the jurors don’t believe Lamar Kartel will be a free man

  5. god not sleeping he is the only judge and laywer

  6. Kartel has blood on his hands, he may not have committed the crime but he ordered it. Good on Lamar for standing up for what he knows happened, No one would risk there life for a lie, as we all no he will suffer consequence for his actions. Kartel is a nasty piece of work hiding behind a dirty industry.

    Murder he wrote…

  8. So him bring the man who kill his friend to di hospital what a sh-t story

    • live (pon dat) and ignore the rest of the story. Don’t use your own brain and try to work out what really and truly happened

  9. I see this case is very contradicting it has no base and no merit. If you see your friend lifeless body and aware that your life is in danger, why would you turn back to help someone who is trying to set you up and possible kill you?? Somebody is lying. Again why are two friends saying one give 3000 and the other give 1000? The only way someone would burnt down their house is unless you are hiding something or possible to kill evidence; otherwise, why would u do such a thing. There is no doubt in my mind that the Lizard person is missing/dead but unless they do have solid evidence, the forensic lady better be careful and the police of accusing Kartel of murder because the way I see it they do not have enough evidence to prove that Kartel committe murder. He did not committe the crime, but he sure no something about it and he could easily placed as an accessory or conspiracy to the murder. And people, if you going to comment, please check your spelling or else no one will take you serious. Thanks!

    • committe?? You should check your spelling, and while you’re doing that, check your grammar as well. That is if you wish to be taken seriously.

      • committee or commit that’s not a problem splinta as long as we are getting what he is saying

      • fu– u bi–h the fu– wid ur spelling

      • you should check your thoughts and realise you are a dumb bias fool who refuse to see sense from nonsense its the way you reply to comments shows how far your stupidity can extend. my question to you is do you really live good with your self knowing you’re showing the world how stupid Jamaicans can be

    • I here what your saying and what your saying sounds like an intelligent person or a person with common sense wrote this comment. Despite the grammatical errors I like the fact that you use your own discretion and point out some key points, however. fear can make a man react in certain ways that don’t always make sense. I came to a few conclusion about the case and thought maybe he was trying to win there trust by showing an act of compassion to prove loyalty and commitment to win there trust because he is friend or was a friend, and there is no need to commit a gruesome act upon him and maybe to place the blame on the guy taking a nap on the floor at the present time.

    • way to go lena world boss innocent

  10. If Kartel walks free . It seems like Shawn Storm knows something about this guy murder . Shawn Storm is very talented and it’s sad to see talent goes in the toilet . Let’s hope Shawn know nothing about it .

  11. Kirkland Jason Edwards

    If the star withness chow is somewhat telling the truth, then kartel, his co-accusers and his lawyer need to pack up. But somewhat they commetted a wicked acked and they should pay for it.

    • kirkkland you are an idiot

      • Listen you’re making yourself look like a idiot you are on line, if bleach face boi’s guilty he will pay for it. If you ain’t got anything constructive to say i suggest you fu– off, FOOL !!!

  12. Kartel had no right getting involve in this mess . Some one kill this guy . Jamaica needs to do better lots of people are missing u here nothing about them .

  13. If your guilty you will pay
