A widow’s cry

Social Share

MARLEEN KNIGHT WANTS to look into the face of her husband’s killer and ask him, “Why?”.

Nine days after Selwyn “Blues” Knight was fatally shot while chasing a burglar in what police acknowledged to be a police-involved shooting, Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith paid her a visit.

But Knight took cold comfort in the words of condolence from the police chief and yesterday rejected the offer of counselling.

“If you want to do anything for me, let me face the killer . . . Let me face him and ask him ‘Why you kill my husband, why you put two bullets in my son and I got to bury my husband now?’ ” the widow told the MIDWEEK NATION a few hours after the police departed. (AC)
