Marcus Jones the protectorate

The match that everyone in the crowd was anticipating was the debut fight for former Tampa Bay Buccanner Marcus Jones. The crowd went absolutely nuts when the announces introduced Marcus Jones. I remember seeing Jones play on TV and I remember him being a monster with long dreads. When Marcus Jones entered the ring I was shocked at what I saw.

Marcus Jones has obviously been getting good training because he made quick work of his opponent who tapped out after he was taken to the ground an pummeled for 58 seconds. Marcus Jones was so excited about his victory you would have thought he had won the superbowl. He thanked his trainers at Gracie Tampa which I have learned is one of the premier places to be trained in the art of MMA.

In a very forceful argument, Marcus Jones listed several points which undoubtedly lend credence to the view point that it was a conscious or deliberate - rather than an accidental- policy of the colonial administration to keep the Krios of the Colony and the inhabitants of the Protectorate distinctly apart. He observed that no lawyers from the Colony were permitted to appear in the Court of the Protectorate without special permission even though a more legal system was being introduced.14

Markin Kilson forces one to believe that "evidence of the prevalence of a democratic heritage in British West African colonies was apparent at the very start of the constitutional development."34 Marcus Jones' brilliant summary of the governor's powers for instance belies Kilson's assertion that "the governor had the right to nominate and appoint whomsoever he pleased...He could summon, adjourn, prorogue or dissolve the Council at will.
