Haitian Diaspora’s Defense of Guy Philippe is Deeply Misguided

By Garry Pierre-Pierre Two days after Guy Philippe was arrested in Haiti by Haitian police officers and extradited to Miami on drug charges, I received an email urging Haitians to sign a petition calling on the U.S. State Department to release him to the Haitian authorities. Philippe, who has been wanted by the U.S. Drugs and Enforcement Agency for more than 10 years, was nabbed on Thursday, Jan. 5 outside a radio station in Petion Ville minutes after he gave an interview.
