Analysing 'Dudus" - 'A master manipulator'

Jamaica Gleaner - "Fear, regret, and guilt are the major emotional themes pervading Christopher Coke's letter (dated September 7, 2011) to US judge Justice Robert Patterson, as he ponders the breadth and depth of a life in a maximum security United States prison. But not from the perspective of sorrow for his crimes as one might assume.

Coke ostensibly fears the traumatic effect imprisonment has had and continues to have on his family, in particular his eight-year-old son and his recently deceased mother. The regret is tangible as he weaves his account of his son's anguish at losing his father's presence and his mother's grief in her dying moments as well as his own sadness at the prospect of missing his mother's funeral."
