    • lol you continue to make no sense. it’s amazing. Yes, you have the freedom to have opinions (even if they make absolutely no sense, just like yours), and you also have the freedom to voice them…but WE also have the freedom to explain to you using, what’s called “objective logic” to disprove any ridiculous point that you make.
      You have the right to say he belongs in jail. And we have the right to point out that all of your reasons for him going to jail would pretty much be a human rights violation…Because he has a devil tattoo and sings about slackness? I thought you were just sticking up for freedom of speech? Yet vybz kartel doesn’t have freedom of speech? LMAO.
      Also, because he bleaches his skin, he deserved to be in jail? If you were to run a country it sounds like it would be very similar to Adolf Hitler or Joseph Stalin.
