My Unlawful Detention at Salem Police Depot


Dear Mr. Editor:

On April 10, at about 12:30am, I was on my way home on the Airfield, just three blocks away from the Police Depot  and came in contact with two vehicles parked on the road with no place for commuters to pass. I waited for two minutes for one of the vehicles to move so I could go home, but to no avail.

I finally touched the cars so that the occupants could be aware that they had blocked the road.

Nine years ago, I had the opportunity to visit a distant 13 year-old relative who had a cardiac problem at the Peace Ward at JFK.  However, next to her was another child of the same age and same diagnosis.

Dual Citizenship: Liberians Everywhere Take Pastor Kortu Brown to Task

The Pastor of the New Water in the Desert Assembly (NWIDA), Reverend Dr. Kortu K. Brown, in an article published on our front page yesterday and in our online edition, called on “ordinary Liberians” to stand up against dual citizenship to avoid what he called “recreating the age-old Americo-Liberian Country divide” that plunged the country into a bloody coup and a devastating civil war. But Pastor Brown received swift reactions from Liberians at home and abroad as the following Letters to the Editor from the paper’s online edition indicate. —Editor.
