Did Khajeel Mais deserve to die?

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I really can't understand our justice system. After many failed attempts to start the X6 murder trial, at the initial stages, the defence attacked the deceased's character. I don't even know how to describe my contempt of these so-called learned people involved in this case.

The incident happened in 2011, and even the Vybz Kartel case that came afterwards was completed, Justice Campbell putting his foot down and delivering the 'Worl' Boss' to his new home.

So, I cannot understand why Justice Lloyd Hibbert told the grieving family to take down social-media posts referring to the lack of justice for young Mais.

I want to know what Khajeel Mais' behaviour at school had to do with the killer shooting him in a taxi. We all know that the shooting was triggered because the taxi hit an expensive BMW X6.

The defence made it look as if Khajeel's death was justified because he was suspended numerous times from school and had a case in the courts. I can't understand why this judge allowed the defence to proceed on this manner.

COLETTE CAMPBELL
