Re:9946/9937 - Tension in Petit-Goave
    As another in the journalism field (and for a
long, long time), I believe it to be imperative that
the journalists reporting and commenting on the recent
events in Petit-Goave should first get their stoies
right and check on the background and the events which
developed into a deplorable and sickening murder. The
USA is out to get Osama bin Laden "dead or alive", and
they are actually trying as hard as possible to "get
him dead". Why? Because he masterminded and applauded
some terribly horrible/heinous activities which need
to be stopped and the perpetrator(s) punished.
   This is not too different from the attrocities in
Petit-Goave. Lindor's death was horrible, wrong,
criminal, but I think responsible journalists have an
obligation to look more deeply into what provoked that
unconscionable act. Don't take what the opposition
would like you to believe; look at the whole picture.
That's what shows the difference between a journalist
and a reporter! 
   Again:: when is the oppposition going to begin to
call for the extradition of Emmanuel Constant, and (to
agree with Pierre Jean) all those others who have
commmitted terrible crimes against Haiti and the
Haitien people? (Cedras, Michel Francois,
Elysee, et. al)
