Jamaica To Extradite Drug Suspect

U.S. President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder

The Jamaican government has agreed to extradite drug suspect, Christopher "Dudus" Coke and a manhunt is currently underway, which could result in a massive standoff, as police attempt to apprehend him in Jamaica. The case has caused turmoil in Jamaica, as the Jamaican government contends, the U.S. Department of Justice, headed by Obama's reckless Attorney General, Eric Holder, illegally wiretapped Coke's mobile phone, in a bid to gain evidence for an extradition.

Many Jamaicans have complained, when the extradition hit a snag, due to the illegal wiretaps being rejected as evidence, as retaliation, the U.S. government began arresting Jamaicans in America for the least little thing, such as traffic violations which were previously not considered arrest worthy offenses, canceling the visas of Jamaicans in America and denying Jamaican businesspeople entry into the United States for standard business trips.

The Obama administration discriminatorily and unjustly reasoned the way to get what it wanted in this case was to punish innocent Jamaicans that have nothing to do with the Coke case and do not support the accused, when hundreds of thousands of lawful Jamaican citizens in America voted for him in large numbers during the 2008 election.

Already Mr. Holder's poor handling of the extradition, has cost a Jamaican civilian her life, which is what the Judiciary Report feared would happen. But such incompetence is to be expect from a man that went into the U.S. Congress as the nation's top lawyer, condemning the unjust Arizona immigration law, without even reading it first, causing great embarrassment to himself and all associated with him.

Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding

Two months ago, the Judiciary Report warned that Mr. Holder engaging in such severe criminal negligence and violations of international law, in demanding the Coke extradition using illegal wiretaps, would lead to tragedy and that is exactly what has happened this week.

The Judiciary Report also previously expressed, law and order is important and all criminals should be held accountable, but authorities must follow the rule of law. Mr. Holder didn't and a Jamaican woman paid for it with her life this week.

For weeks people were also stating, if Prime Minister Golding gives the go ahead for the extradition, under the illegal wiretap evidence, he would be signing his own death warrant. The Prime Minister's safety has been placed in danger as well. The Department Of Justice could have handled this matter better than this.

Had Holder gone the standard international route, of getting witnesses to testify against a drug suspect, rather than resorting to illegal wiretaps, this would not have happened, as there would have been no room to move for the suspect.

However, the Judiciary Report firmly believes this was an attempt to disrupt and topple the Jamaican government, which is not new territory for the U.S. government.

A number of nations such as Haiti (the U.S. government forcibly removed Jean-Bertrand Aristide from office, by kidnapping the Prime Minister and depositing him on the other side of the globe), Panama (the U.S. government invasion in 1989 left 4,000 dead and the government toppled), Grenada (In 1983 the U.S. government invasion left 25 locals dead and the government upended) and Iraq (the U.S. government invasion in 2003 toppled the Iraqi government, executed its leader Saddam Hussein and left 1 million civilians dead in an ongoing war being fought for oil) have been subjected to the same treatment in previous incidents, with the desired goal of destabilization, under someone's political agenda. So much for world peace.

Sadly, in each of those cases, lives were lost as well, during the ensuing turmoil. The Judiciary Report doesn't believe for one minute this is the way the American people want the U.S. government to represent the nation in the world, as that's about politics and not people.
