Mexican drug lords have a negative effect on millions of
people. I don’t think that they even
know how many lives that their actions effect.
Most of the drugs in America enter the country from Mexico. Thousands of people have died in the drug
wars of Mexican cartels. These are
reasons why people like Mexican drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero should never be
released from prison.
Americans are proud of our justice system, which promises
everyone a fair trial. Yet our system sometimes makes mistakes. When a reversible
error occurs in an American trial, someone who has been convicted improperly is
entitled to be released, pending a new trial. Mexico is also a country of laws.
There, Rafael Caro Quintero was found guilty in federal court of crimes that
should have been tried in state court. His murder convictions were therefore
improper. Out of respect for its system of justice, Mexico was forced to release Mr. Quintero, after he had served 28 years in prison.
