Update: 44 Dead In Jamaican Drug War With Police [Video]

 

At least 44 people are feared dead in Jamaica as supporters of suspected drug lord Christopher “Dudus” Coke continue to lash out at police.

As previously reported Jamaicans in Kingston barricaded the kingpen’s neighborhood with barbed wire and set cars and police stations on fire after hearing that Dudus faced extradition to America.

He faces charges in the U.S. with drug and arms trafficking and is set to be extradited after a 9 month delay where officials debated whether his inidictment was based on illegal wire tap evidence.

In retaliation, masked men went on a rampage with malatov cocktails and fire power leaving two members of the police force dead on Sunday and a State of Emergency declared.

Jamaican officials still do not have Coke in custody.

The U.S. State Department tells The Associated Press that it’s “the responsibility of the Jamaican government to locate and arrest Mr. Coke.”

A U.S. Embassy spokeswoman also went on to deny rumors that U.S. officials were meeting with Coke’s lawyers.

Jamaica has one of the highest murder rates in the world and reported 1,660 homicides in 2009 alone.

    There is far more to this than what the U.S. is revealing. This is not about the war on drugs. If it was actually about drugs, the U.S. would also be going after other international drug cartels. This is all about politics. This man is a savy and educated drug cartel who is very active in the Jamaican government. His influence has interfered with the the set up of the typical puppet government that the U.S. and England would like to achieve.

    This and the whole ordeal in Mexico is about drugs. The USA wants to control the drug trade and all of the independants from Jamaica and Mexico are making it difficult for them. Mexico now has it’s own poppy fields, which used to be only found in Afgahanistan.
