Haiti: No Justice?

As an ex-priest is extradited to Canada to face charges of sexual abuse of minors in Haiti, The Haitian Blogger says: “The international community has evidently concluded that there is no justice in Haiti. Sexual predators who have been operating with impunity in Haiti are being extradited to their countries of origin to face criminal charges.”

  • I’m a Haitian living in the U.S. From my point of view, I just think that the same way I see they treat Haitian people in U.S, whish is usually underestimate them or purposely try to make them feel low, maybe to take advantage of them.

    I have had that myself many times, where one time I was forced and admitted to a psychiatric against my will because I was complaint about abuses against me by people in workplace, that later turned to be evewhere I go like someone who has been put on a spy list. Since than I have become to believe that the U.S.A, like country such as Iran, North Korean has no REAL justice too. Most of the U.S. laws are on a paper. In the U.S.A, Human Rights abuses keep quiet, and if one is from a poor country, such as Haiti, it is even easy for those abuses to go unotice because many people only see Haitians in U.S.A as some people who from a desperated country that as long as they can get food, their human rights is no issues. You just have to pretend that you are fine.
