Jamaican male drug mule found dead in Bermuda - Breaking & Current Jamaica News - JamaicaObserver.com

Jamaican male drug mule found dead in Bermuda - Breaking & Current Jamaica News - JamaicaObserver.com: "Police have warned of the risks of drug smuggling after pellets containing drugs were found in the body of a 35-year-old Jamaican national.
Police believe the drug pellets inside the body of Hugh Melwood may have contributed to his death.
Melwood’s body was found at a house on the central parish of Pembroke a week ago, after he returned from a recent visit abroad.
“Several pellets which contained what are believed to be quantities of controlled drug were recovered from within the body. It is suspected that they may have contributed to his death. The deceased recently returned to Bermuda from an overseas trip,” the police spokesman said.
“The Bermuda Police Service wishes to take this opportunity to remind the public that the penalties for those convicted of drug offences are severe. Additionally, the health risks associated with drug smuggling cannot be understated,” the police spokesman added."

five Filipinos condemned by Chinese courts are the latest high-profile indication of a growing, major problem: Drug convicts now hostages

Bangkok Post : Drug convicts now hostages: "The five Filipinos condemned by Chinese courts are the latest high-profile indication of a growing, major problem. As this newspaper reported yesterday, seven Filipinos have been caught smuggling drugs into Thailand so far this year. They are among 116 foreigners and eight Thais arrested at Suvarnabhumi Airport so far this year for cross-border drug smuggling. An astounding 75 of the foreigners were Iranian. They account for nearly two-thirds of all arrests.
Iran has become Asia's biggest supplier of crystal methamphetamine. Known as ice, it is a particularly evil, addictive and mind-altering drug. Gangs inside Iran produce the ice, hire or coerce the 'mules' and send them off, particularly to Thailand.
Typically, these mules carry three or more kilogrammes, probably on the correct theory that there is no big legal difference between a small or large commercial quantity. As with the Filipinos caught in China, as with Thais caught in Latin America and China, the Iranian couriers caught in Thailand have no human value to the drug gangs. They are criminals, but they also are victims.
The smuggling of drugs into Thailand has exploded in just a few years. The biggest source is Burma, where the pill factories of strongly connected drug lords such as Wei Hsueh-kang churn out millions of tablets for China, India and especially Thailand."

Target in fatal North Oakland shooting had been named in gang injunction - Inside Bay Area

Target in fatal North Oakland shooting had been named in gang injunction - Inside Bay Area: "Gang members aren't just dangerous because they are violent, they're dangerous because they attract violence, proponents of Oakland gang injunctions argue. If those gang members are subject to curfew, they would be kept off certain streets where they may act as 'bullet magnets,' drawing gunfire by luring their enemies.
That theory was in play in an Oct. 15 shooting in the 5200 block of West Street, near Children's Hospital Oakland. Multiple shooters in passing vehicles fired on three men standing together, striking all three, one of whom died of his wounds Monday, and killing an uninvolved woman who happened to be nearby, officials said.
One of the three targeted men was Eric Tullis, 20, who was among 15 men declared gang members in civil court in June, police said. Tullis had successfully evaded being served with his injunction, Oakland City Attorney John Russo said.
Tullis was treated for his injuries at a nearby hospital and released after the shooting. Later, he was arrested in Hayward, in possession of an illegal firearm, stolen property and $3,000 in cash, Russo said, and remained in jail Wednesday on $55,000 bail. He has now been served with his injunction and is therefore subject to curfew if he is released."
