Rolling Stone just did a piece on Chuckie titled â??American Warlord,â?� and it paints him as a frigginâ?? monster who liked to speed through crowds in the Liberian capital, Monrovia, in a Land Cruiser with license plates that read â??Demon.â?� He was in charge of an anti-terrorist squad whose job it was to protect his father. Chuckieâ??s boys used tactics like shocking victims in the genitals and pressing hot irons into their flesh.
Hereâ??s a quote from retired Brig. Gen. John Tarnue regarding how Chuckie would conduct his interrogations as an anti-terrorist military leader in Liberia: â??I want to see blood,â?� Tarnue recalls Chuckie saying. â??In my presence he tortured people. He didnâ??t touch them, but he gave the order.â?�
â??Chuckie was very much like the Hussein sons,â?� David Crane, founding chief prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone, tells Rolling Stone. â??He was completely above the law, protected by his father and his henchmen.â?�
Wonder if he still gets the Evans alumni newsletter?
In an effort to cement his place in history, Chuckie has also released a song. Recorded in Trinidad, â??Angelâ?� is the kind of sped-up, soul-sampling beat Kanye used to specialize in (before he, you know, went crazy) and itâ??s weirdly not bad. He takes a cue from Ja Ruleâ??s thug-love growl, with the added element of a bone-chilling, off-key sung bridge that could be his â??Singing in the Rainâ?� from Clockwork Orange. One can only imagine how many people heard that low voice just before they died.
