Mistreatment of El Chapo serves no one
As I previously stated, mistreating of El Chapo diminishes all of us. The United States is filled with extremes. On one hand they have this wonderful Constitution protecting civil liberty for all and on the other hand they have dirty dogs trampling the Constitution from within.
El Chapo has been in solitary consignment for two and a half years. His lawyer has asked that he be allowed to purchase some bottled water, have a little bit of fresh air and proper ear plugs. All of which are very reasonable requests. El Chapo is housed at a notorious Manhattan prison that has been compared to Guatanamo Bay. That is nothing to be proud of. As I've previously stated, Norway has the best prison model in the world. The United States does not. The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world. Even more than China and Russia.
As I previously stated, El Chapo should be pardoned in exchange for his testimony against the CIA. That would be in the public's best interest.
Compare the treatment of El Chappo, Manuel Noriega and Oliver North. Again we see the sad saga of unequal protection of the law emerge. Colonel Edward P. Cutolo testified that in Operation Watchtower the planes loaded with cocaine landing in Panama from Bogata were met by Col. Tony Noriega and CIA Agent Edwin Wilson. The CIA made Noriega president because of his drug trafficking on their behalf. He worked for Oliver North. Oliver North was pardoned and became a Fox News TV host. Manuel Noriega died in an American prison.
Operation Fast and Furious was a CIA operation where the ATF sold the sinola carter guns and brought back tons of cocaine into the United States as payment. El Chapo had a .50 cal sniper rifle from Operation Fast and Furious. Hilary Clinton was the author of that operation.
