  1. i said it over and over and will again say it if u dont have connections to port of entry / exit you cant ship illicit drugs on such a large scale..on the basil williams – winston felix tape it clearly shows how they were going to use the status to plant illicit drugs on a citizen when she shows up at the airport..there are many illegalities you can use your status , power and authority to perpetrate ..the beauty of this is a police officer whom swore to uphold laws and to protect and serve..he protect and served the the wrong citizen alright..he should do life in prison so as to set the agenda for those who are doing same as him and the would be criminal police who join the police force thinking they can get rich quick.
