This is an angry piece

Dear Editor

Re: Something is wrong when a criminal stands up to His Honour the Chief Justice

Keni, these are our people, human beings you are talking about here, and they should have rights to have their voice heard, don’t you think? 

This is basic human rights 101; they are entitled to this regardless. 

Are you implying that their human rights be stripped from them because they are known to be criminal in nature? 

Now, let’s think about this a minute and explore everything that is wrong with your article. I like reading your stuff; I think they are mostly well written. 

But this opinion piece is too angry. 

You sound like a dictator. 

Don’t you remember when NZ thought all Samoans were criminals at one time which justified there stripping of all Samoans from being NZders and then under such justification striped a large number of New Zealand citizens from their citizenship. 

I am reminding you of the balance of thought my friend; we must stay tuned and know which side is Godly and which is not. We must learn the line that must not be crossed. 

People miss the mark, sin, repented but never forgiven, that is the society we are in today and that is the real “pathetic”. Let’s just hope God is not equally as hush with us in the day of the final judgment. Peace!
