PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - The Haitian judge deciding whether 10 U.S. missionaries should face trial on charges of trying to take a busload of children out of the country says he will recommend that they be released. Judge Bernard Saint-Vil finished questioning the Americans on Wednesday. He now must send his recommendation to the prosecutor, who may agree or object. But the judge has the final authority to decide whether they stay in custody or go free. Saint-Vil told The Associated Press he will recommend that all ten be released. He would not elaborate, and it was not clear whether that recommendation means the charges may be dropped.

All 10 should be sent to jail where they belong.
They kidnapped up to 30 children under the guise of helping the “children”.
Reports said some of the kids were telling their captors that they had parents.
Unless these ten child abusers had legal custody of these children they are child abusers. God only knows what their intent may have really been.
In fact, said the Rev. James Keller, pastor of Topekas Bethel Baptist Church, the group had tried to get the correct paperwork.
In an e-mail from the Idaho church that organized the mission, Keller read that the group tried three times to acquire the paperwork before they were asked to pay $300 a head for the children to cross the border. Culberths group refused, Keller said, and before long they were arrested.

Well in taht case they are stupid but not guilty. Stupid for going there and expecting something different to happen in a country with a history of corruption.
How many others just as naive went trying to help out people in a real crisis without knowing just how things operate there?
Haiti can go ask France and the UN for help now. They couldn’t contain their own criminals who were busy raping and looting the survivors but they could arrest those who were being extorted who went there on their on dime to help their citizens? F’em.
I’ll drink to that. Thanks for the info too.
