Let me start by saying I have a lot of admiration for our brothers (yes, no more women) who live on the continent and join us in cyberspace. I salute you all.

Bagaman is not a man known for spewing the usual illogical rantings of some SILERs. However, his posting on LL makes my head spin.

Bagaman's thinking is the unidirectional thinking that has sealed the fate and doom of Black Africa.

Bagaman says the West's prisons are full because they have problems, problems that we in Africa don't have. It's true that Western prisons are full and even some die hard conservatives are calling for reforms to reduce the numbers.

However, has Bagaman considered the fact that we in Africa live in total freedom, jungle style, where no laws are enforced and life is short, brutish and nasty?

Has Bagaman considered that if modern laws were applied rigidly in his village, his own village CHIEF might go to jail for marrying an under age girl or making her pregnant? IT IS CALLED STATUTORY rape in the West here. That adds to the prison numbers.

Has Bagaman considered the fact that anytime he separates two youngsters going at each other in his village with whatever weapon (stones, sticks etc) they can find, in the west here that would send those youngsters to jail?

Has Bagaman considered that in the West here if your own wife says, honey I am NOT in the mood tonight and you forcibly sleep with her, you can go to jail. Imagine, how many Burkinabe men would be languishing in jail just because of this offence.

Has Bagaman considered that if you speed and hit someone or destroy someone's property that could land you in jail? Recently, a Somali woman who was issued a Learners permit, drove without a substantive driver by her side, hit a woman pushing her 4 month old baby and killed the baby. Back home, the elders would have gone to plead for this Somali woman since she was a learner driver. Guess what, she is going to jail even though she is still breast feeding her own child.

When will we stop being UNIDIRECTIONAL in thinking?

IF YOU LIVE IN A JUNGLE WHERE JUNGLE LAWS RULE, LIFE CAN BE GREAT ALBEIT BEING SHORT, BRUTISH AND NASTY!!!!

I AM BECAUSE I THINK!!!
