In Haiti, an attempt to pump fatal shots into nation President close friend body, that of convicted criminal Ronald "Roro" Nelson


By Yves A. Isidor, Wehaitians.com Executive Editor 


NASHUA, NH, Jun. 1 - After making a habit of punching, slapping and leaving partially toothless untold number of his fellow Haitian compatriots, including those he assumes to be against the dictatorship-in-the-making of ill-repute President Michel J. Martelly, since the latter assumed the office of the Haitian presidency in May of last year, an attempt to fatally terminate the life of convicted criminal Ronald "Roro" Nelson in the Port-au-Prince wealthy suburb of Petion Ville Thursday failed after one of the three armed men who first pretended to be in search of employment opportunities, in the immediate aftermath of partially penetrating the felon's (he is still on probation in the state of Massachusetts) residence, was gunned down by security guards, and the other two arrested - all security officers, members of the marked for death Mr. Nelson's recently formed private security firm.

The more than brigand, excitable, if not, too, "bloviating ignoramus" (coined by United States conservative intellectual George Will) Mr. Nelson who now sits on the throne of opulence, wealth and power, as hundreds of thousands of his fellow Haitian brothers and sisters continue to sleep rough with sky their only cover, endure the indignities of crushing poverty, apparently suffers from a psychological condition that is known as "folie de grandeur" or delusions of grandeur. It certainly has psychological manifestations. "The news media news media," he said late this week, "is trying to vilify me the same way it made vicious and defamatory statements about former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the same manner it maligned the Haitian army."


And what other way to understand Mr. Nelson's dangerous behavior? Since no judges, no duly elected officials and appointed public servants, especially those in position of command, and a significant number of politicians have yet to loudly say a big "NO" to his comportment of dictatorial nature, at least to force him into reverse, their unexplained silence continues to suscitate hostility from bodies of voters, it sure gives Haiti's constituencies a feel that nothing has changed for the better, except that citizens comprising of the constituencies of the same have once again been betrayed. Sadly, Mr. Nelson's murderous behavior is impervious to judicial subordination, it is incapable of being affected by political interference.
