Ricky Trooper the selector was not holding back when he spoke out against the artistes who are breaking the new laws that were put in place since the Covid-19 outbreak across the world.
He remembers speaking up for the industry recently when the noise abatement act was being enforced; and now he believes it is important for him to add his voice to the problems that artistes are causing.
Trooper says, “apologizing for breaking the law is not something he is willing to accept now”. He thinks they don’t have any regard for the lives of others. The judge should use the opportunity to lock up the entertainers who breached the law, for a long time and use them as an example so that other, Jamaican’s will not do what they did.
No amount of money and fame can protect you from this invisible enemy now. Trooper says he is very upset because the entertainers should be the ones who are making songs that would encourage the people to keep the laws.
Now that there are many restrictions placed on the entertainment industry, life is hard on the people who were earning from the many events before Covid-19 started infecting people.
He said, “Jamaica doesn’t have enough health professionals and hospitals to deal with a huge number of sick people like the other countries that he saw where thousands are dying now.” He noticed how packed the hospitals in other countries are. “Jamaican’s need to think about this and stop putting their lives and the lives of others at risk”.
He believes Jamaica could be in a much better position if the people would simply respect the law.
