hahahahaha!!! and we somehow think we're going to fix the problems of criminal activity and drugs, by building bigger, better, more, prisons. hahahahaha!! the prisons are just another profit center for those who created the drug laws, to provide the huge fortunes they're accumulating and protecting. those in the prisons, are collateral damage of the rest of the system. it's the opportunities for corruption, built into the law, and those standing in line to take advantage of them, that are the corruption we must address.

Panama | Underground Rears Its Ugly Head. Guatemala Parlacen underground operation for institution infiltrations has its origin. Panama Papers was the beginning of that origin. A disguised German with Guatemala nationality and passport living in the U.S. Link of description below: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/06/03/us/document-von-der-goltz-mossack-fonseca.html Some foreign nationals are complicit with the goal of obtaining control of other nations for purposes of financial and political leverage. Political leverage is mainly possible through control of a nation's economy usually through forced manipulated economic declines through debt. Political leaders like former Panama president Ricardo Martinelli has performed this astoundingly well with his cohorts, henchmen (National Assembly) stripping away at the critical state funds. Martinelli established his connections with the purchase of Israel's Pegasus spy equipment using Panama's state funds (PAN) of $14 million provided his initial clandestine operation. Martinelli used his status as Panama's president to join Guatemala's Parlacen for his impunity. Martinelli used his status...to pardon and release hundreds of prisoners for his critical connections. Martinelli was ready to incorporate his sons into the infiltration of higher government agencies and meld the underground into a smooth disguised legitimate operation. Martinelli was be ready to expand his operations further with links to the Mexican drug operations with their links to Guatemala' Parlacen underground operation to find illegal profit schemes spearheaded into the United States. The Underground German Operative: Harald Joachim von der Goltz is best known as a Boston financier who invests in early-stage companies. But he has also been a longtime client of Mossack Fonseca, which helped him create a web of interlinked offshore foundations and corporations with assets totaling as much as $70 million. The following documents illustrate how Mossack Fonseca established the accounts using Mr. von der Goltz's Guatemalan nationality and passport, even though lawyers with the firm knew he actually resided in the United States. The information of the link provided above is a perfect example of the underground connection involving financial experts working to infiltrate high banking institutions all the way to the linking of the Panama Paper...Mossack Fonseca! Mexico former president Nieto was handed $100 million from none other than...El Chapo! China has a major bank in Panama and was working very closely with former president Varela. Soon after the $50 million restaurant scandal broke out in connection with a fourth bridge canal proposal with hardly a word of any effective investigations. The underground connections for the infiltration of of government, state agencies, businesses, financial institutions with resources of skilled talents and drug operations was reaching its apex with former president Ricardo Martinelli when he joined Guatemala's Parlacen and fled for the U.S. only to return stronger with his goal of re-entering the election campaign for the Panama presidency and take total and complete control of the state with his sons. Panama Constitution lacks the basic impeachment article to preserve and defend its tenants for the preservation of a free democratic government and is now vulnerable to the whims of a charismatic dictator with broad underground connections with an empire of financial expansion. Panama president Cortizo solution is to basically replace those in these institutions for not doing a good...job??? It gets crazy...BELIEVE IT OR NOT!
