Did Rev. Miller get justice?

I must agree with Robert Dalley (Gleaner, July 24, 'Al Miller's guilty verdict grave injustice '), in which he wrote that Rev Miller being was asked by Christopher 'Dudus' Coke to transport him to the United States' embassy in St Andrew for extradition not wanting to surrender to the Jamaican police for fear of being murdered.

I could understand Coke's thinking at that time and there is nothing unlawful in him asking Rev. Miller to safely take him to the United States embassy in 2010. Coke was surrendering to the United States authorities through Rev. Miller.

I bet if Coke was apprehended alone driving to the embassy we would have heard from the police that he engaged them in a shoot-out, firearm taken from him and in the exchange of gunfire was shot dead.

We are a dishonest and unreasonable set of Jamaican people, especially the police. As Dalley wrote, Miller should instead have been congratulated for taking steps to carry Coke to the embassy. A grave injustice carried out on Rev. Miller. Justice was not served in this case.
