Christopher Coke sentenced to 23 years

Remember Dudas (AKA Christopher Coke), the Jamaican drug lord? He was sentenced in Manhattan (though most of his criminal acts were in Jamaica). When he was holding out in Tivoli Gardens, I did not think this he would ever be sentenced, much less by a US court.

I wonder if life today is better or worse in Tivoli Gardens without Dudas. Seriously. Seems like an important question to ask.

I'm not familiar with Dudas's crimes, but it's tough for me to imagine that his extradition was worth the body count. Not impossible to imagine, but tough.

Thanks for the link. I was out of the country and missed it.
