Quite why the Jub Jub trial ended up as the media circus it became maybe a topic for another day, but when the verdict was read out this morning I expected rolling news channels to get legal professionals to explore his options. I was too optimistic, as it turned out, the opinion of some rapper by the name of Slikour was deemed to be more valuable by ENCA.
I don't know what's worst, having this guy on or having the semi-literate anchor attempt to quiz him on what should be done to prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future. If you can't get through the hot air, here's the punch line: It's not Jub Jub's fault that he killed kids, it's the society's fault because we don't train people how to deal with success. Sending a convicted killer to prison constitutes two wrongs because "what human wants another to be locked up". You couldn't make it up.
As if that was not enough, he then proceeded to take his crusade to twitter where he was rebuked.
Prayers for jub jub, sympathy for the families in my opinion as painful as it is two wrongs don't make a right. Good luck brother

A quick search reveals that this guy is a renowned attention seeker and it all begins to makes sense. He was invited in hope that he'll say something stupid and he didn't disappoint. A few years ago this would have prompted outrage, but the lack of outrage may be the new outrage.
