Since a Parish Judge handed Al Miller his second criminal conviction, he and pal Herro Blair have circled the media wagons to convince us “a nuh nutten”.

Fair enough. However, the sight of normally cynical media practitioners drinking Al and Herro’s Kool-aid by the bucket makes me ill. Al and Herro’s excellent adventure features Herro’s wild, unsubstantiated and unworthy allegations against the JCF.  Nobody has held his feet to the fire.

Al alleges Police Commissioner approved his plan to surrender “Dudus” and gave him the option of delivering “Dudus” to any police station or US Embassy.  Al says Dudus chose the Embassy because he was fearful police would kill him.  Trevor McNaughton, Tony Brevett and Brent Dowe (The Melodians):

I have a little nut tree.
Nothing would it bear for me
but a silver nutmeg
and a golden pear alone…

Let’s examine this utter rot which media has failed to convert into the Swiss cheese argument it really is.

  1. No police commissioner can give any Jamaican an option to break the law. With a warrant issued for Dudus by a Jamaican Judge; with 73 Jamaicans already having died in genocidal attempts to execute that warrant; only a lunatic would purport to “offer” the fugitive the unlawful “option” of surrendering to the Embassy;
  2. So it’s an impossible offer from the get go. Were it to be attempted, you’d think everything would first be tied up with a bow at tri-partite meetings among Commish, Embassy and Al. Nothing such is alleged.
  3. Embassy immediately denied any arrangement with Al. Commish refused to testify. Al’s Defence elected not to subpoena him.

If you listen closely you’ll realize the alleged “discussions” Herro keeps talking about took place BEFORE the Tivoli invasion.  This isn’t contentious.  At the Enquiry, Golding and Ellington admitted being contacted by Al who said he was trying to convince Dudus to turn himself in.

However, Al’s continuing fantasy, rejected by the Judge, that weeks later the Commissioner gave Al options for his Driving Miss Daisy routine, is something Herro didn’t witness personally.  He certainly didn’t give any such evidence at Al’s trial.

When persons of interest are surrendered by intermediaries, precise details of where and when are pre-arranged. Why wouldn’t Commissioner tell his policemen Al was on an approved mission?  If everything was pre-arranged, why was the fugitive disguised?

One lonely night in June
when my tree began to bloom
I saw in front of me
a girl just like the Queen of May

This isn’t the first time a Judge has rejected Al’s claims in response to a criminal charge.  Charged with criminal negligence causing his firearm to be stolen, Al’s excuse was he was distracted by picking plum (plum?).

To my surprise, she was to be
what God wanted her to be.
She was to be my lover, you see,
so that’s how it will be

The Judge rejected his unsworn testimony to which Rev Al was quoted as saying;

I think the judge made her decision based on information that she garnered, albeit inaccurate….but it raises the whole question of the system.

After his sworn testimony was AGAIN rejected in the Driving Miss Daisy affair, he repeated similarly garbled allegations before getting help sounding like a comic-strip Chineyman answering the phone “Herrooooooooooo!”  Thereafter, the duo’s comedy shtick’s premise has been “Al can’t be to blame”. Remember, Al’s perfect. He once wrote (Gleaner; January 13, 2013):

The Church and its representatives…are the primary carriers of the mind of Christ in the world and it’s through them Mr Robinson and all men need to be guided. Mr Robinson, you cannot get around us, as we’re the only true, authentic reps on [earth]. I, for sure, and many others have the history, evidence, lifestyle and character to back it up…

Al should count his blessings. James Forbes was fined $800,000.00 for a first offence related to a traffic ticket. Constable Lyn Sue (first offence; fabricating evidence) was sentenced to six months in prison. Al was caught ferrying Jamaica’s most wanted fugitive, in disguise, allegedly to an institution with zero right to receive him.  His alleged enabler repeatedly denied him.

So, one of the most indecent arguments being put forward is to compare Al to Jesus Christ “the most famous criminal convict”. But Jesus WANTED to be convicted. He refused to defend Himself. Jesus’ conviction, death sentence and execution were all part of Divine plan. Al’s Driving Miss Daisy charade was another very smelly kettle of fish.

Peace and Love

    It makes me want to puke, too. Herro Blair inserting himself into this farce is even more nauseating. And most of the media, it seems, have given Al a “bligh.”

    […] So Reverend Al Miller now says he will appeal his sentence for perverting the course of justice. He did not do any jail time, but quickly paid his J$1 million fine last month. The more I read about the tragicomical “Driving Miss Daisy” episode, when Miller drove a wanted man in disguise allegedly to the U.S. Embassy after the Tivoli Gardens massacre of 2010, the more disgusted I feel. I would recommend you read The Terrible Tout’s hard-hitting series of blog posts on the matter, starting with “Al and Herro’s Excellent Adventure”! […]
