    Clean up the entire island and get rid of all the drug dealers there so our beloved country can go back to the glory days.

      Yeah...the glory days of Prohibition! Get outta here! Let the people who want to smoke grass do it. America needs to stop worrying about policing the world for drugs/drug dealers. We cant even fund our own schools. Do you know how much we spend, annually, on the 'War on Drugs'? Staggering. When will we realize that tolerance is the most effective way of controlling our drug problem?

    Get your facts straight. Everywhere in Jamaica is not called Kingston. He was not caught in Kingston

    In no way do I condone dealing, but Chris Coke: can there be a better name for a dealer?

    Keep in mind there are 20 -30 Mr. Cokes in every major American city. Now 80% of the worlds drugs will stop going to America, the war on drugs in America is officially over. America is no longer a drug dependant society.

      For real, he was better able to deal with order in the country than even the so called state.

    He is simple a product of the society and if there was not an avenue for him to do all that he is alleged, he would not have done it

  15. Mr common sense

    Glad to see that we brought another drug dealer to answer to justice. Never mind the fact that America uses more drugs than any other nation. Maybe we should do something about Americans who buy the stuff, but that would be the end of drug dealers as we know it. That wouldn't be the most intelligent way of fighting this problem would it? Heck! the way we fight drugs would calculate the winning factor to around "never".
