THE EDITOR, Sir:
I have read the two letters commenting on Jah Cure's celebrity, notwithstanding that he was convicted of raping a woman - a total stranger - at gunpoint.
The fact that Jah Cure rose to fame while serving a seven-year prison sentence for this brutal act speaks volumes about our society. In most countries, convicted rapists are at the bottom of the totem pole in the ranks of prisoners, just above child molesters. In our society, one can be convicted of rape, deny it in court, and then release a song and sell millions.
What does this say about us as a society?
