OMG! Good thing this guy was caught! I had no idea we had heroin users. We don't need to add heroin addiction to the mess we already have in this country.

Assuming he was leaving Nassau, he likely purchased the heroin from one of the many Haiti-connected drug smugglers in Nassau who are trans-shipping tons of this stuff from Central American countries into the U.S. and Canada through our country via Haiti. LMAO

Exactly! This story does not answer the basic question of whether this smuggler was entering or leaving the country. It is sad and incredible that day after day The Tribune’s stories fail to address such simple but important questions. Just terrible, terrible journalism.
