Khami, stop! Honestly, abeg, stop!!! This isn't making an iota of sense at all! There is room for justice just as there is for compassion.

Compassion is to God and justice is to the state! Give Caeser what is Caesers - I say! Let God and the family do the forgiving and leave the law to serve it's purpose. Now when I say that, I mean fairly and justly not a blatant injustice like this one.

If I have compassion for people, what has it to do with anybody?
And I ask again, can you show me where I said justice should not be served?
Didnt Sola write in one of the post up there that Justice has been served according to the law of the land?......
Incase u missed it let me say it again, I have never said justice should not be served. My position on this is, if IB was your brother, sister, mother or father would you want her to recieve a harsh punishment?.....That, my dear is what I am about on this topic..... If my father killed a million people (DUI..... Though I know he is in the wrong I wouldnt want him hanged, I would still want his sentence reduced...and that, is the position of most humans.... So if I advocate doing or wishing others as you wish urself that does not in anyway mean am self righteous..... but rather stating the ugly facts of life

Its reasoning like this that keeps Nigeria in the dark state that we find ourselves; and also keeps you ""safely tucked away in Holland!


Seriously dude, you need to quietly back away from your computer; you've stopped making any iota of sense!
 
Folks,let us be reasonable here!Sarcasm and name calling cannot remove the miscarriage of jusice in this particular case.I have absolutely nothing against IB,i am not jealous of her-she has nothing that i aspire for-and i am no racist.
A star by Nigerian standards kills a breadwinner under the influence.She-the star-is known to be battling with a couple of stress which to some people,justifies drunk driving or better,makes it more understandable that she drinks and drive.A judge convicts her for manslaughter with seven years and an option of 100,00 Naira which in Euro would be like 550.An unregistered but genuine consortium of Nigerians for Justice confronts also an unregistered but genuine moral/humane experts in a cyber forum called NR over the issue whether justice was delivered or miscarried!!
Where are the movie writers?It would make a thrillersweat:
However,my only concern is that i do not know what it costs the Nigerian government through their prison service,to keep a convict for seven years in jail.If it would cost Nigeria 100 thousand Naira to keep a convict in jail for seven years,then that option of fine is justified.But if not,justice was miscarried.PERIOD
hmmmm you know, you might be unto something here!

it costs the Nigerian goverment less than 20,000 Naira to keep a prisoner... this is an offcial amount, cos a major part of of this amount is stolen by corrupt prison officials, leaving the prisoner in abject hardship and lack throughout the year.. to put this in perspective, there are prsioners that dont wear any item of clothing from Jan 1 to Dec 31 (the very poor ones that is; whose famlies have abandoned them); the walk about stalk naked hiding their privates in tattered remants of rags or cloth scraping they've managed to scavenge; hungry and riddled with disease... Many, to get food, clothing or medicare, join christian fellowships or other religions groups who support their members.... Many kind-hearted Nigerians who donate to the prisons do not know that their "goodwill offerings" never reach the prisoners as the prison wardens steal these from them.... its just sooo sad!

please always remember the Nigerian prisoners with your goodwill.... No human should have to live like they do no matter their crime..

BTW: The maximum jail sentence for any offence in Nigeria is 14yrs... that is; if you are sentenced to life, life sentence equals 14yrs in Nigeria..14 horrific years, which you'd probably not survive...

but I digress....

Jesus Take The Wheel

Jesus Take The Wheel lyrics


VIDEO

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy with the baby in the backseat
Fifty miles to go and she was running low on faith and gasoline
It'd been a long hard year
She had a lot on her mind and she didn't pay attention
she was going way too fast
Before she knew it she was spinning on a thin black sheet of glass
She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn't even have time to cry
She was sooo scared
She threw her hands up in the air

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
And the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat sleeping like a rock
And for the first time in a long time
She bowed her head to pray
She said I'm sorry for the way
I've been living my life
I know I've got to change
So from now on tonight

Jesus take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can't do this on my own
I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I'm on

Oh, Jesus take the wheel
Oh, I'm letting go
So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I'm on
From this road I'm on
Jesus take the wheel
Oh, take it, take it from me
Oh, why, oh

The head of John the Baptist on a silver platter

Compassion is to God and justice is to the state! Give ceaser what is ceasers -



Herod (Matthew 14: 6-12) 6 But when Herod's birthday was celebrated, the daughter of Herodias danced before them and pleased Herod. 7 Therefore he promised with an oath to give her whatever she might ask. 8 So she, having been prompted by her mother, said, "Give me John the Baptist's head here on a platter." 9 And the king was sorry; nevertheless, because of the oaths and because of those who sat with him, he commanded it to be given to her. 10 So he sent and had John beheaded in prison. 11 And his head was brought on a platter and given to the girl, and she brought it to her mother. 12 Then his disciples came and took away the body and buried it, and went and told Jesus.

There is nothing new under the sun !!

my dear u hit the nail everytime.everytime!!!grinning:
18 With one voice they cried out, "Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us!" 19 (Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.)

20 Wanting to release Jesus, Pilate appealed to them again. 21 But they kept shouting, "Crucify him! Crucify him!"

22 For the third time he spoke to them: "Why? What crime has this man committed? I have found in him no grounds for the death penalty. Therefore I will have him punished and then release him."

23 But with loud shouts they insistently demanded that he be crucified, and their shouts prevailed. 24 So Pilate decided to grant their demand. 25 He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, the one they asked for, and surrendered Jesus to their will
 
“Render unto Caesar…” is a phrase attributed to Jesus in the synoptic gospels. Jesus gives this answer to the question of whether it is lawful for Jews to pay taxes to Caesar. The full sentence this phrase comes from is “Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s” (“Ἀπόδοτε οὖν τὰ Καίσαρος Καίσαρι καὶ τὰ τοῦ Θεοῦ τῷ Θεῷ”) (Matthew 22:21).

This phrase has become something of an independent aphorism that expresses resignation about the inevitability of submission to authority (akin to Benjamin Franklin’s pronouncement about “death and taxes”), a belief that it is good and appropriate to submit to the State when asked, or that such demands are non-

My dear did u read my post or u were replying to something else?.....
Why are people all of a sudden going off about the word COMPASSION? Does it in anyway imply that I dont want justice served? Did I at anytime said justice should not be served?.... I asked before, and nobody has pointed me to where I said justice should not be served...... Okay take compassion out of my post, and it still does not imply that I dont want justice served...... I have asked a particular question several times that nobody has answered, instead they say I have gon loco..... My question, which is the backdrop of my take on this has been avoided and replaced with a holy khamileon that doesnt want justice but compassion
Have a peaceful day

Its reasoning like this that keeps Nigeria in the dark state that we find ourselves; and also keeps you ""safely tucked away in Holland! Seriously dude, you need to quietly back away from your computer; you've stopped making any iota of sense!
from ur post, it seems you are new here, yet u know so much about me and how I am safely tucked away in Holland. I will advice u stick to what u know. If your aim of Insulting and following me around is to get the same result from me, then I suggest u read the old threads here. There is nothing u can say or do that will make me stoop so low as to Insult you, definitely not in this life time.

If Nigeria is in a dark state, it is because of wicked, heartless and greedy people and not because people wish for friends, families not to be punished severly for their crimes.... That, is the human nature and not a Nigeria thing.... In Holland a footballer killed someone in a car accident and he was asked to sweep the street and in no time was back playing for the country...... YES a life was lots cause he went over the speed limit and YES he is supposed to be punished severly but he was not......But why didnt the country condem this with one loud voice? Simple, because people like him a lot and just want to see him playing football again.

Finally I guess u didnt join this site because of Khami, so there are other intresting things to do here than insult. I am immnune against that, especially from faceless people that I might never get to see. Be well
 
Here's a very recent story incident that occured in England concerning a player who killed an individual by dangerous driving. He signed a football contract 2 days ago and that's after spending 3 years in jail. That is what we in England call "Justice and The Rule of Law".
The guy has decided to do some community work, but that's after he had served his sentence and Justice had been done.

A S Leone example would be more appropriate in this case !!!!



Please I'm not in the mood for your insensitive comments. Does it take a genius to figure out that I reside and study in England?

Last thing I want is to have an argument with you because your posts doesn't make sense at all. All you have done is to insult people when you run out of ideas as is so often the case. I am not interested in anything you have to say.
This incident occured in Nigeria. I gave an example based on my location and where I reside. But I'm not surprised you're having difficulties to grasp such basic information because you focus more on insulting people than making sense.
Don't try it with me.
