Everyone knows the demand for quick and easy adoptions is high. It's also a business for those who can make it happen. In my view, these people had the good intentions to deliver kids to needy and good homes (much better than Haiti) however it's coming to light that some of these kids weren't orphaned. No matter where and under what circumstances, you can't just walk away someone else's kids.
Not sure where this is going but I wouldn't want to be doing years of prison time in Haiti. What a nightmare that would be.
On the other hand, who knows what was intended by these attempted kidnappings.... (especially with the vast number of religious loopy-loops residing south of our border).
"They would have been taken to a ‘Christian’ orphanage and brought up to be good little Fundamentalist Christians, with the same hatreds, biases and prejudices of the religious right, and a loyal voting block of the Republican Party."....
A fate worse, than if left alone in Haiti, in my opinion.
Stealing children used to be a hanging offense. I guess their not worth as much these days.
If again, interfering with the judicial system and laws of another country in this manner is ok with you, then fine. The kidnappers were charged with committing a crime. Why not allow justice to run it`s course? Pleading ignorance (especially after numerous warnings) is no reason the crime should be over-looked because of the criminal`s nationality, imo.
What if they hadn`t been caught in the act and were successful in displacing the children without permission of the Haiti gov....would that have made the crime less offensive?
What judicial system? Donít confuse our judicial system with that of a third world, dirt poor country like Haiti. In many third world countries, the standard of proof is very much different from us; it is a totally different judicial system.
And trying to get the release of prisoners by bribing (or giving a donation to the relief effort) forms part of the justice system over there.
Since Clinton will be dealing with Haitian government, there is no way he can do anything illegal and get away with it. Presumably in Haiti, what the government does is legal.
Indeed, that is how things are usually done in third world countries. Islam even officially sanctions it. In Islam, if a man commits a murder, he has the option of making a payment to the relatives (male relatives, of course). If the relatives consider the payment sufficient compensation, then the man is not charged with murder.
So if Clinton bribes the Haitian government (as you claim), it wonít be anything out of ordinary.
What judicial system? Don’t confuse our judicial system with that of a third world, dirt poor country like Haiti. In many third world countries, the standard of proof is very much different from us; it is a totally different judicial system.
5-15 sentence in a Hatian jail would be worse than hanging.
2100+ Kids go missing daily in the US of A, over 80,000 year.
How many do you think are sold and how many are used in rituals?
Keep in mind 1% is still 21 kids per day.
In my honest opinion that is far far more devistating they ANY terror attack and yet very little is done.
If indeed the US is able to buy/bribe justice for these criminals through monitory means from this desparate poor country says very little about thier own morals, let alone the Haiti gov`s. All the more reason the world has, to dispise the US and it`s hypocritical actions, don`t you think?
