Not matter their excuse is they intentionly broke the law.Its like robbing a bank to pay off someone elses bank loan.To try to do right in the wrong way is still wrong.I guess what enrages me the most is because the word Christian is involved they get pity.If I attemped such a thing Id be locked up for a long time and hated for it!Everyone should get equail justice but I do not see it.They will have many helping them to get out of this,but the average person would not and that makes my blood boil.
Ignorance is not protection from the law either. Either they were extremely dense or they intentional chose to break the laws of three nations including our own. Either way is not an excuse, to intentionally be ignorant of the law is both arrogant and stupid. Just tell that police officer you didn't see that stop sign and see how he responds to your ignorance of the law.

I see The Haiti 10 are released.I could give children from Haiti a better life to.I only want 16 year olds,they can run better to escape border guards and preform Christian Sex to.Im sure their life would be better here even as a sex worker.Im sure backing can be found to support a secret mission like this.If you are caught teams of attorneys will get you released.Right?

Suppose you tried to do something or go somewhere. You set about getting together the required paperwork. After doing the best you can under unusual circumstances you proceed. When you arrive at the place where you are to present your paperwork. Ah but lo and behold you missed something and it's significant enough to stop your participation. Most of us would simply return with the required paperwork and all is well. Suppose instead you are immediately presumed to be perpetrating a fraud. Now you'll never get the required paperwork...cause you're in jail. Bet you wouldn't be so judgemental then. Moot point though since it looks like a Haitian Judge has decided they aren't traffickers, and should be released.
I would be willing to bet that in a Latin American country in the midst of turmoil,$$$ is what gets you out of prison the fastest, faster even than in regular times. In some Latin American countries, bribing police is just a matter of course. I definitely wouldn't assume them being released is an indication that the judge doubted their guilt!
