The Crocks And Con Men Shouldn’t Hold Their Heads High: By UA
If kidnapping pays this much why am I wasting my life on a desk struggling with computer codes – gibberish that few sane people appreciate? Why am I not out on the hunt for victims to rob, extort and terrorize. Why am I here where I will never get my name in the newspapers for good or notoriety?
Truthfully, I am here behind a desk in a cubicle for two reasons. Firstly, I am not criminally inclined and I take pride in what I do. Secondly, I wouldn’t like a blemish on my name.
You may not want to believe it, but some do not care about blemishes; in fact if the culture in which they live in do not frown at it, anyone in such culture would be foolish not to participate; after all, it is their way of life.
Studies have established the fact that one’s culture is one of the most potent of determinant factors in how we speak, how we understand spoken words, how we navigate the world and whether or not we do certain things.
So I ask: What about The Society that Created Evans?
I am yet to do any detailed study of Evans – the kidnap kingpin who we have learned lived the princely lifestyle many aspire to – a lifestyle that would be enviable if his wealth were from the good means – means of wits, determination and fortitude – means of sweat, tears and blood.
The crocks and con men shouldn’t hold their heads high.
We should adhere to all that’s just in this space we’ve carved out as ours -none crocked should find comfort in our mix, we should at the very least isolate them and not hold them in reverence if we can’t prosecute and imprison them.
We should never complain nor cry if we are passive participants – we should not cry nor beg the con man to sustain the day-we shouldn’t cry, nor complain, for we are at fault – we all groomed and nurtured the Evans among us.
