Santo Domingo.- Haiti senator-elect Guy Philipe, who's wanted by the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), was arrested Thursday by Haitian police as he was leaving a radio station in Port-au-Prince's upscale Petionville district.

Philipe, a former colonel of the dismantled Army and who became the country's chief of police, was linked to the attack on the motorcade of former Dominican president Leonel Fernandez in Port-au-Prince on December 12, 2005.

He was accompanied by bodyguards when taken into custody, according to Efe reporters at the scene.

Philipe, who made an unsuccessful bid for the Haiti presidency in 2006, has been blamed for several uprisings in Haiti, including his leading role in the 2004 coup that toppled Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

After the DEA accused him of drug trafficking in 2007, Philipe went on the lam until last year when he resurfaced with a call for civil disobedience against the transitional government Michel Martelly left office.

I hope that this piece of S. gets the time that he deserves in jail. He tried to kill our president after all that we have done for his country.

"....make Haiti great again".....did I read that correctly? And pardon the inquiry, but the question begs, "GREAT" about what exactly?

No need to go there. I'm very familiar with Haitian History. But my observation has nothing to do with "arrogance." It is based on the campaign slogan repeated by Trump throughout his campaign as if a parallel and applicable to Haiti. Trump was somewhat justified to say it, but I need further clarification when the adjective "Great" is used to refer to Haiti. Its a bit of a hyperbole. I'm happy to say, one of Haiti's greatest feat was to be the first black slave republic in the western hemisphere freed from its oppressors. But as much as I am glad for the accomplishment, I can't help but be saddened, that same blessing also became Haiti's greatest curse. You have forever been paying a never ending debt for the freedom gained.

It's leaders like this that has caused most of the problems in Haiti . Haiti is a hell hole . It always has been and it breeds men like this in this hell whole . I've alway though that France should chip into reform in Haiti . They made it . What Haiti really needs is outside intervention that will hold it long enough for a real govt. under a different constitution and enforcement until Haiti learns what good governing actually is . Its been so long I don't think Haiti doesn't even know the difference .
Just the blind being led by the corrupt and powerful . Over and over again .
If the DR doesn't like what goes on in Haiti so bad . Three step it ! And fix it . Before some war hawk from America does . It the DR would approach the UN with this . They may go along with it .
Nobody need a Somali in the neighborhood . With no govt. at all . And warlords leading the country .
The pirates will attack any thing that floats for pocket cash . Papa doc returns ? Again ?

They're about to destroy your whole family and habitat :

Santo Domingo.- Government officials including one mayor on Friday announced a joint push to enforce the resolution which bans danny00's black ass from the Ozama and Isabela rivers, where at least two of his family members have already been towed out of the area.
Environment minister Francisco Domínguez and Port Authority (Apordom) director Víctor Gomez headed a meeting with technicians from both agencies, who'll work on towing these rare ugly mammals out of the Ozama and Isabela, to undisclosed dumping sites.

Ozama, isn't that the river u and your wife bath in. the shack u guys live in is it the yellow shack with palm leaves for your roof?! your wife deserves better then that.? at least she has running water and a nice but stinky breeze. did u ever get her the lower dentures she needed for the last 30 years. I remember when she lost the last denture long time ago must have been difficult for her to chew on HARD OBJECTS. HAHAHAHA

Yes, I totally agree. We gotta save him as scrap metal. We will squash him down then send him to the recyclers and perhaps get some cash back for the salvage value, then use the money to buy from the Dollar menu at MckyD.

YOUR also upset because your as tall as Danny devito, and very upset that u was born with an exceptionly small penis. don't be upset with others god punish u from day one. Now your in your golden years and u realize your days are numbered. u all though your life was jealous of others. in high school u couldn't make the baseball or basketball team. they gave u the towel boy position. listen I can understand why your so upset all your life but I can't feel your pain. when I look in the mirror each day I see this good looking very white guy. over 6 feet and built like a Sherman tank. I'm sorry for u and your brothers and sisters. I heard that u hated the nickname SHORTY. I guess I would also if I was only 4'9". I can't believe your so short. the girls don't like short guys

we should become friends AGAIN the dr needs us so many problems they have. we need too stand together and stand true against the Haitian problem. we can defeat if we stick together. I don't want the dr to become a other Haiti. please think about my offer. we do this 4 OUR COUNTRY. I know u got very upset about my post last week ISREAL BUILDING THE TALLEST SOLAR TOWER IN THE WORLD. we together can catch up and even pass isreal in the near future. we Dominicans have the talent and numbers to do this. just think of the millions of young Dominicans who are ready to show the world who we really are. god bless u and all Dominicans.

Dude I am of Southern European ancestry. My great grand parents came from the Andalucía and Canary Islands in Spain. I don't know about you, but that is white enough for me.

How about you? Did your ancestors come from North, South or West Africa? Did they get pulled and captured from out of the jungle somewhere in the middle of the black continent?

B Haitian .. Your right . As long as the DR still goes with the cartel cash .and Haiti is still abandoned as a nation with out good governing . The cash flow for help and assistance will end . Insults won't fix a thing . Look at Mexico and Central America . These people are not crossing the border for any body's jobs . They are on the run . Escaping what they left behind . Where their sons will be forced into working for the cartels be murdered . Or their daughters being sold into the sex trade at a young age .
And yet . It exists with out direct intervention by a govt. I feel for all of these people . The majority of them are escaping . Some come for devious profits . Why ? Ask your selves that . Why ?
You will see where the DR is headed if you do . Already it is considered a drug hub . So when trump changes the allowance to good behavior vs bad . And he will . Where does the DR fit in ? Or Haiti ?
Enough personal insults . Start talking in stead . I'll listen .

This guy is just another bully . He has no plans to govern for the better . Haiti has a trend towards keeping them poor and and barefoot . UN educated and ignorant . Haiti wasn't. Given its independence from resistance ., Haiti was given independence out of abandonment . France was broke . And Haiti wasnt worth keeping . That the bottom line . And ever since then Haiti has still been abandoned as not worth the trouble . The uprising against France came at a time when abandonment was a better solution than standing up to a demand for independence . The history of Haiti represents one thing . No government in Haiti has ever been a good government . Haiti always has and always will be . A nation abandoned . Unless out side involvement globally ,takes over and holds Haitian govt. 's feet to the fire and guidance is installed . Until this happens . Haiti will remain the same . Abandoned to its own ignorance , poverty , and oppression . In fact . This guy likes it like that again
