Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke arrested in Jamaica

Alleged drug kingpin to face charges in U.S.


 

Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke, the alleged drug lord and gang leader in Jamaica whose supporters launched violent attacks after authorities set out to arrest Coke, is in custody. Coke was taken in peacefully by Jamaican police on Wednesday and is expected to be extradited to the U.S., where he’ll be accused of running an international drug ring. U.S. efforts to detain Coke has strained relationship between the U.S. and Jamaica after they exposed a longstanding partnership between drug dealers and the Jamaican country’s political leaders.

  1. I'm opposed to the U.S. demanding the extradition of citizens of sovereign foreign countries for crimes they have not committed on U.S. soil.
    If Dudas Coke is a Jamaican criminal, it's up to the Jamaicans to deal with him. I suspect the U.S. is bullying Jamaica with $$$'s.
    Likewise, I object to Canada not protecting Mark Emery.

  2. jah love fi ruhl

  3. Dude – he was selling his drugs in America

  4. @ Tru Dat : so does the CIA……….

  5. End the war on drugs and treat drug addiction as a health problem.

    Take the money out of vice by decriminalizing.

    I doubt Mr. Coke was selling drugs in the U.S. He may well be a foreign source of drugs in the U.S.

    I'm not ready for world government.

  6. The USA has plenty of blood on its hands from its own actions round the world
