Ninja Dan freed – Jubilation outside courthouse

Jonathan ‘Ninja Dan’ St Rose and his co-defendants were today set free by the High Court, sparking scenes of jubilation outside the courthouse.

An eyewitness told the Times that ‘Ninja Dan’ was in tears.

St Rose, Mervyn Nelson and Lynden Blasse were charged with the February 14, 2009 murder of Dwayne ‘Chubby’ James.

James, of Maynard Hill, succumbed after being stabbed.

The mother of the deceased told the Times there was nothing she could do about the new development in the case, as she was expecting the release of the three defendants.

St Rose and the other defendants had done some eight in prison.

    Dan, we heard recently — all the best on your recent engagement to one of your posse. It is truly wonderful to see someone with the courage to, like the rest of the world, show we Looshans that same-sex relationships are acceptable and should be celebrated.

      The family would be better served focusing on living their own lives to the full, relying on Jah to have the real culprit dealt with in due course for their heinous act.

    This is where the family can make an example by filing a civil suit or a tort for compensation for the loss of their loved ones, it’s time the precedent is set that after the criminal proceedings you can still make people pay.

    What a judgmental society we live in. St. Lucians are always judge and jury eh. Where any of you there when the tragedy occured?Do you know the details leading to their release? People in this place always look at things with emotion rather than simple facts. I would hate to ever be accused of any crime in your country. You all would hang me even before the situation came to the courts! DISGUSTING!

    That’s why they like to say St. Lucia is sweet, I keep telling them what makes St. Lucia sweet to some people is that fact that St. Lucia is easy. You can kill,steal,rob,rape,deal drugs and get away with it. These guys being released are guilty as hell. But they murdered a man and now they are free, you might even see ninja Dan on stage again.

    I don’t think it’s fair to the victims family ..he murder someone and only eight years in jail …he coming out rejoicing …there no joy there that’s injustice…he didnt see life was so sweet when he was killing the man …he should have nev er been set free
    ..never…if the man has children they should make him pay children support…remember karma knows everyones address.

    Lucians change the way of thinking.The justice system did wrong but are we to rejoice due to be returning to socal? Nothing can replace a soul that was murdered.Final judgement belongs to god but we can judge based “on their fruits.”stop putting God in wrong thinking because he has set laws such as though shalt not kill another human.So didn’t the victim deserve a second chance? God judges and he also punishes,it is not a free for all.People can judge but both families are hurt but is it one family that should rejoice.Wake up people and stop justifying and making excuses for wrong doing!!
