Gang members who once ruled Haiti's largest slum with violence and intimidation have returned to the streets after stealing guns from prison guards at the collapsed National Penitentiary and destroying all records of their crimes. More than 3,000 inmates broke free from the prison after the earthquake hit last Tuesday, brandishing assault rifles and mounted on motorcycles, before returning to the Cite Soleil shanty town.

It doesn't sound like they're looking for honest work, and this time, they won't be sent to prison. I don't think destroying their records will alter their fate.

Among the escaped prisoners are men so violent that tales of their crimes have become urban legend and feature in popular Haitian rap songs.

No doubt we'll see them in Hollywood and at the MTV music video awards before long.

It has been interesting to notice that the British press have been reporting more violent incidences in Haiti than most of the US MSM.

Well sure. Our MSM are Obama worshipping zombies who only report what their master tells them to report. Besides that, they couldn’t see the truth if it bit them in their asses anyway.

“Obama will welcome them to Florida with free homes, free food, free voter registration cards, and free government checks.”

Well sure, because he knows all those voodoo heads will vote Democrat.
