Reggae singer Luciano charged - harbouring a fugitive

By Kon-Vick Writer understands that Internationally acclaimed reggae singer Jepther "Luciano" McClymont also known as the Messenger was charged yesterday by detectives from the Half-Way-Tree police station for harbouring a fugitive.

Luciano was arrested on Friday following allegations that he was sheltering a wanted man who is responsible for the death of several police officers. He was however released on bail Monday afternoon after his lawyer Delano Franklyn filed a writ demanding that his client be charged or released.

On Tuesday March 24, cops invaded Luciano's residence on Westminister road in search of a fugitive named Andrew Senior aka Conqueror who engaged the cops in a bloody shootout that lasted for more than two hours. The wanted man was found dead while three cops were injured during the process.

I can't believe him really put up a criminal like that. Lord give you strength, what the hell you was thinking? Did he threatened you? Or you thought no one would find out he was hiding out at your home? What inna dark must come a light, especially inna Jamaica. Then again, show me your friend and I'll tell you who you are.

Ah SO WHAT. Did Luciano do some thing to you or what. How do you know what is and what is not. The police tell lies the news reports only what they want us to know, any one with two sense knows that the news is not one hundred percent the truth. Here sa and go so ah two different ting FOOL!!!!!. I being married to an artist for many years now so I can say this. Some times you don't have to go looking for people, when situations arise bad man come look for you and offer their services to you. Who can say that Luciano even knew this name was a cop killer, how do we really know since the man is dead now and can not speak for himself. In a society like Jamaica with corruption at every level we can not be sure of every thing the police say because they do tell lies and they do break the law them selves. I can go into details with facts about that part. Big up your self Luciano ah wa dem tek rasta fa dem feel sa we ah pussy fi Babylon come tex set pan we. Mek nassie nega go way from round here. When time come fi defend it then ah dat we ah go do, and to hell wid bad mind people inna bad min world. Luciano defen di ting we all will keep the fire blazing. Nuff Love

The 1/2 has never been told. Yes Luciano made a mistake..but we dont know the circumstances. Like Vanessa D said, at times inna JA, a Bad man wi just Draw fi you. in this case the Bad man hear sey smaddy beat up Luciano and just decide on his own to be Luciano's protector. Is Luciano right, no..but he is human and maybe at the time he was experiencing some fears (because he is human) because someone recently beat him up. Also, just suppose being the spiritual man (what i see) Luciano is, suppose him did ah work (Advice) this Bad Man fi the man turn himself him or Luci just feel like he could have counselled the man so the man can changed his ways.

All i am saying is that we dont know the circumstances and its not Luciano who was firing any gun or killed was a man that was in his house so should we really crucify Luciano for that?

It's really a sad day when a man like this feels that it's necessary to harbour a known murder like this for protection... TSK TSK.... I figure it was fear that cause him to make such a wrong decision, after getting attacked maybe he had this man stay with him because he was afraid of a repeat of what happened at the gas station. He knew this man was a murder, no one can tell me otherwise, this man was wanted for at least 8 murders and he was on the country's list of wanted men, Luciano does live under a rock or in a cave so he was aware of the man's deeds and maybe that's why he had him there to protect him and his family. With that being said he put his child and Empress in harms way, they could have been hurt in the shoot out.. This was a stupid move on his part and I hope he learns from this.....

Bwoy, breda Luci what goes around comes around, u memba the statement u mek when the gun dem was found at breda Sizler's place. This is jamaica wa every man fear fi dem life n which ever way u can protect it u will try, a one life u get. U ca sa anything till u fin u self ina the same spot, the Police and the Government ca protect the people so the people ha fi protect them selves. Dem fi legalise the gun is only the man wa coward like mi n u n no wa go a jail no have no gun.
Condemn no man and let no man condemn you.
Blessed is the man that walket not in the council of the ungodly nar sit in the seat of the scornful can u do that?

@vanesa Duncan, luciano know the man was wanted, is he living under a rock b*tch? i live in america and i know about this killer.
2)your so quick to say your married to a jamaican artiste for years...if i were you i wouldnt be so quick to own that, because those rastas and ball-headed artiste that uno think is a saint, come here and eat every pussy them get them mouth on and use half them stage show money fi buy gal things, oh yes i know because am one of them lolo, lots of gucci and shit. and lots of pussy eating. they are scared to do what they desire best in jamaica because the girls there talk alot and its too close to home, so they fulfil there fantacy here. quiz you ma, tell him you have proof and he will maybe fess up, uno love pickup fi man too much and love save the crime and spoil the child.

A long time now Lucianno a harbour fugitive & criminal minded people inna him camp. Anyone who knows him know dat. That's why him get him an a*s whooped the other day a di gas station. I cant understand the reason for a so-called rasta man to be encouraging so many criminals around him, leave dat to we bald heads that the rasta them always a judge. And nothing nuh wrong if we judge him pon dah site yah cuz when Sizzla did inna fi him passa passa wid police & bad man, chatty mout Lucianno did a talk up a whole heap a sh*t bout Sizzla. Him is such a spanish machette, cuz out one side of him mout him a blast Sizzla & outta di other side him come a Welcome to Jamrock a big up rapist Jah Cure inna di same time period. It just prove that rasta are just like the fanatical christians dem - always wanting to judge other people, but can't stand up to judgement.

Plus, him not so wonderful. I know a girl weh him used to deh wid & him used to beat the sh*t out of her just for f**king being in his sight. Big up to you J. for finally walking out of that mess.

Me nah ask nuh body, cuz fi mi family inna every money making ting inna Ja & mi know weh mi si & mi seh Lucianno deserves to be charged & hopefully do time. Dumbass, harbouring a fugitive that uses your kid as a shield against bullets. Yeah a so mi seh.
