Canadian Drug Kingpin , Jimmy Cournoyer, with Ties to the Rizutto and Bonanno Crime Families, the Hells Angels and the Mexican Sinaloa Cartel Plead Guilty in 2013 to Narcotics Trafficking Crimes Carrying Sentence of 20 Years to Life and $1 Billion in Forfeiture.

He will discover his fate on August 20th when his sentence will be handed down.

However, U.S. feds are now seeking a 30 year sentence, arguing that a lighter sentence would amount to little incarceration time for Cournoyer, due to the fact he has elected to spend his sentence in Canada. Canada has a very liberal probation system that would drastically cut actual time spent behind bars.

Pointing out that Cournoyer "had a cadre of high-priced lawyers in Canada and the United States working to intimidate and threaten underlings into not cooperating with authorities. Various lawyers helped monitor several criminal cases related to Jimmy Cournoyer's massive cross-border drug trafficking network, probing for tips about investigations, warning co-conspirators against testifying and even offering 'bribes,' pay-offs and implied threats of harm to themselves or members of their families," say prosecutors. . .

Oh, the irony.

Fed crim-thug persecutors are squawking about too little jail time for a guy intimidating witnesses...

Perhaps someone could explain to them with a nail-studded baseball bat that they are the same guys who intimidate witnesses...

Canada will probably mess with him for a while and find a way to hork him across the border to the U.S. to get rid of him.

Wow. Apparently, it really cheeses off our Owners when a peasant can see their bottomless taxpeasant checkbook and raise them an eff you.

The Feds are criminals, too. The Founders had experience with criminal .gov types...

If he ever gets to the U.S., the first thing will be a dinner with odumbo and the “First Cow” in the White House and then he will be set free. Odumbo needs those drug people here to keep the U.S. “economy” numbers up.
