Comments on: Washington flatfooted by return of Haiti’s “Baby Doc” Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 By: MDeris Tue, 18 Jan 2011 22:24:17 +0000 Does the Haitian government really want to sent baby doc to prison? What have they really accomplished since baby doc left Haiti?
What are the standards and the morals of Haitian government right now; what progress did they accomplish? I left Haiti 34 years ago, I never heard any progress. With baby doc, there were no burning tires on the street, kidnapping people for money, or raping young children on the street. Fifty percent of the Haitian population does not know how to observe and respect the law, and the government is no different. Haitian government makes and breaks the laws for their own interest. Finally, with baby doc, people did not have any worries with theft, they could walk at any time on the streets of Haiti. Duvalier was truly, truly good, he kept them in line. There are lot of educated Haitian people in diaspora or in Haiti, they need an hierarchy with good structure for my brethren to follow. We need a leader who can take care of the people and create an assembly of an organized government. For instance, in the case of the aftermath of the earthquake, if there was an organized committee delegated to make decisions in times of catastrophe, there would have been a more favorable outcome.
