Jamaica has the privilege of being home to one of the world’s most dangerous Kingpins: Christopher “Dudus” Coke. No, I didn’t make his name up. The scum has strong influence in the government. So strong that the government fears angering him and dealing with the wrath of those loyal to him which may very well result in the death of thousands of Jamaicans, and transform the country into a war zone.
John P. Gilbride, Special Agent-in-Charge of the United States Drug Enforcement Administration’s New York Field Division (“DEA”), Javier F. Pena, Special Agent-in-Charge of DEA’s Caribbean Division and Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that charges were unsealed against
Coke, also known as Christopher Michael Coke, a.k.a “Michael Christopher Coke, a.k.a “Paul Christopher Scott,” a.k.a “President,” a.k.a “General,” a.k.a “Dudus,” a.k.a “Shortman,” is charged with conspiracy to distribute marijuana and cocaine and conspiracy to illegally traffic in firearms. The United States has formally requested through diplomatic channels that Jamaican authorities arrest Coke and extradite him to the Southern District of New York on the U.S. charges.
According to hypnotikqrew Coke allegedly leads an international criminal organization known as the “Shower Posse,” with members in Jamaica, the United States, and other countries — which he has led since the early 1990s. At Coke’s direction and under his protection, members of his criminal organization sell marijuana and crack cocaine in the New York area and elsewhere, and send the narcotics proceeds back to Coke and his co-conspirators. Coke and his co-conspirators also arm their organization with illegally trafficked firearms. Coke has been named by the U.S. Department of Justice to the list of Consolidated Priority Organization Targets “CPOTs”), which includes the world’s most dangerous narcotics kingpins.
This man has the entire country in fear and has exposed the government of Jamaica for what it is: a cowardly organize that harbors criminals. Allowing this punk to be extradited would definitely be the first step in cleaning up a country that is in dire need of a clean-up (Jamaica averages 140 violent murders per month). The concern is, however, how much of a cost are Jamaicans willing to pay for that well-needed clean out?
