Soldiers use tear gas against starving Haitians
The World Food Program, which is in charge of most of the food distribution and has collected billions in donations, finally got around to trying to deliver a small truck full of beans rice and oil.
The Haitians were told that they would not receive anything unless they filled out long and intrusive data collection forms. Many of the starving Haitians pointed out that they were illiterate.
The World Food Program then took back by force the small number of boxes they had started to hand out, loaded the truck, and left. "If the Haitians will not cooperate with our requirements, then we will not give them food."

"They were going to get the medical attention they needed. They were going to get the clothes and the food and the love they need to be healthy and to start recovering from the tragedy that just happened," said the kidnapper, Sean Lankford of Meridian, Idaho, who was caught attempting to illegally sneak a truck full of terrified children across the border.

Can you imagine a bunch of Chinese appearing in Louisiana after Katrina, collecting hundreds of children, forcing them onto a boat, and then taking them to China to be "adopted so they will receive the care and love they deserve"? Without even checking first if their parents were still alive but separated?
Why not collect children from the mall that are separated from their parents. You could even establish a "church web site" as a front for your trafficking operation.

With this last idiot, maybe he is well intentioned, but how would anyone know? He has no documentation for what he is doing, what he is doing, kidnapping a truck full of children and crossing national borders, is not only illegal but an extremely serious international crime that InterPol investigates.
A pedophile would use the same method, and would probably have the exact same cover story if caught.
He probably expects since he is american he can do anything he wants. He has NO respect for Haitian sovereignty or law, he considers himself a law unto himself.
He claims to be doing this on behalf of a Baptist church. If he is really Baptist, his entire attitude of being above the law is typical of them.
If this was legit, there is NO reason whatsoever why he couldn't first confirm that their parents are dead and then arrange for them to be adopted, in accordance with the local law.

Look how threatened you are of facts and the truth.

Threatened by the news tear gas is being used for crowd control? Oh hell, tear gas is used all the time in the US for crowd control. Even been near by its use. It works and it doesn't kill people. I say use more of it!

>>> Look how threatened you are of facts and the truth.
No, everyone's indifferent to your wild exaggerations.
Speaking of truth, what type of boat did you sail around the world and when did you do it? Did it have a full keel?

> Did it have a full keel?
Only until the whale ate half of it.

Space whales! With photon flippers!
(The story was covered up by the government, of course.)
