Cordel: G.S.U. Accountable for Kelvin

From all accounts, fingers are pointing in one direction in the disappearance of the bright and well-liked Kelvin Usher, the SJC JC student who has not been seen by his family for three nights.  P.U.P. Deputy Leader Cordel Hyde agrees that there are more questions than answers as this ordeal continues to develop. The initial police report issued on Monday was silent on very pertinent points. There was no mention that shots were fired or how many on the morning of September twenty-fourth in Lucky Strike. The police also did not disclose that a second person had fled the area. And there was no information that the mother of the teenager had been turned back when making a missing person report. Hyde says that if something is to happen to Usher, the GSU is to be held accountable.

“And we need answers mein. This can’t be just another case. We need answers.  These kinds of things are happening way too often in our society. If anything happen to this youth, if we noh find this youth or if we find ahn ina wah wrong way, this deh pan the GSU. They have to give a lot of explanation and people who are responsible have to be held accountable. It can’t just be another case of a missing youth and we have all kinds of wild speculation, but nothing happens. That’s why nothing changes in our country because when these things happen, we just continue on our merry way and we overcome it and we forget about it and we move on because some other crisis will come up and some other scandal will come up. This can’t be like that. There are just too many questions. Like how do you approach some young men who you say are near some baby marijuana plants and you come shooting? What gone on right deh soh? And when the mother goes to try to make a report, you say that the last person that was with the kid has to make that report? You lose forty-eight hours. And then when yo do come search, dah noh Ladyville police or eastern division or B.D.F.; dah the same GSU weh mi deh pan the scene of the crime in the first place. Come on mien, how that look? Everything smelly and look bad about this whole situation. And if it looks bad and it smells bad, then something wrong.”
