3 {Black Nationalist} Drug Ring Leaders Flee Just Before Conviction On Federal Charges

DETROIT (WWJ) – The leaders of a large-scale drug ring fled Monday, according to federal authorities, before they were found guilty of drug charges in Detroit federal court.

It was one of the largest heroin and cocaine rings in metro Detroit history, prosecutors said, but before a jury handed down guilty verdicts, three convicted in the case — 39-year-old Carlos Powell of Washington Township; 36-year-old Eric Powell of Franklin Farms; and 38-year-old Earnest Proge of Detroit — all took off.

Deputy U.S. Marshall Rob Watson said the three were able to get away because they were out on bond. {Miniscule Amount Censored}.

Here's some revealing facts (LINK):

"{U.S. Magistrate Judge} Murphy allowed each man to wear a fez hat in his courtroom."

"U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Randon released Carlos Powell on $50,000 unsecured bond."

"U.S. Magistrate Judge Mona Majzoub, meanwhile, released 36-year-old Eric Powell and 38-year-old Proge on $10,000 unsecured bond."

"During a raid of Carlos Powell’s home in northern Macomb County, agents found $3 million in cash."

"During a years-long investigation, agents seized 66 pounds of heroin, 12 kilograms of cocaine, 1,000 pounds of marijuana and more than $21 million in cash... $800,000 worth of jewelry, real estate in Michigan and Georgia and luxury vehicles, including two Bentleys, a Ferrari, a Rolls Royce, and boats."

Why did one judge allow the fezes in court and why did 2 judges set the ridiculously low and unsecured (no cash up front) bail from such rich criminal defendents?

Here's the CBS censored background (LINK):

The court had received assertions of "the men’s “Status, and Nationality” as members of the Moorish Science Temple of America (MSTA)" and of the fezes being “religious headdress that must be worn to distinction.” [See also Link]

"So-called Moors are typically black nationalists who... deny the jurisdiction and authority of the government".

Before founding Farakan's Nation of Islam (Black Muslims) Wallace Muhammad stoked his radicalism as a member of the Moorish Science Temple of America.

Once again Chairman Obama's "transformation" of America and the reign of Political Correctness has given radical anti-Americans preferential treatment and the Media has covered it up.

~~~$3 million in cash~~~

I’m slightly under that. Got just under $31 on me, lol.

I must admit I haven’t counted that last bit of change making up the last dollar of it though. I did find a penny yesterday.

Shiny, too.

You would think with all of the world being under constant surveillance that three guys in Detroit would be easy to find. Hmm.

Ironically, not only are their options for nations with no extradition treaties with the US strictly limited, but now they have the US Marshals Service after them.

“In 2012, U.S. marshals captured over 36,000 federal fugitives and cleared over 39,000 fugitive warrants.”

Basically, it is like having a division of Terminator robots after you. And, btw, they are authorized to basically kidnap Americans overseas that have federal warrants out on them.

In the early 1970’s, there was a guy who called himself Colonel Hassan Jeru-Ahmed who was probably part of that “Moorish” group, as he dubbed himself a “Moor.” He snookered Richard Cotten of the Conservative Viewpoint broadcast into supporting him and in the spring of 1971 conned the federal government into a six-figure grant for his “Blackman’s Volunteer Liberation Army,” a private army that he was setting up. However, shortly afterwards, he disappeared from the news.

"Check the judges bank accounts."

But those accounts are across the river in Canuckistan along with the racistly suspected suspects.

I was shocked that no politician was involved. And then I read the story.
“A fourth defendant, 54-year-old Kenneth Daniels — a former State Representative for Detroit Fifth’s District — was convicted of structuring financial transactions for the drug ring leader, Carlos Powell”
My faith in Detroit politics is restored.

And he was the one criminal who showed up.
I guess at his age and visibility, he gave up the idea of running.

Yo, homies! You were supposed to buy the FEDS not the FEZ.

Anyway, looks like the gov got what it came for in any case:

agents seized 66 pounds of heroin, 12 kilograms of cocaine, 1,000 pounds of marijuana and more than $21 million in cash... $800,000 worth of jewelry, real estate in Michigan and Georgia and luxury vehicles, including two Bentleys, a Ferrari, a Rolls Royce, and boats.

"Now get hopping and sling some drugs, we'll come back and seize your assets again in a few years."

AND that doesn't include what had already been seized...

~~~agents seized ... and more than $21 million in cash.~~~

I think we found not only the entire economy of Detroit here, but basically most of Michigan.

The only drug I buy and can afford is a 500-bottle of 325mg acetylsalicylic acid every few months.
