Italian Mafia 'regrouping' in Australia - Australia may be the new hub for worldwide narco trafficking

The Australian arm of the Italian mafia has resurfaced as a key player in a $A38 billion cocaine trafficking operation, Italian authorities say.

The Calabrian mafia in Australia had played a key role in helping to create a criminal network, shipping drugs around the world from South America and laundering the proceeds through banking schemes, a News Ltd report said.

The claims are made in a report to the Italian parliament by the Anti-Mafia Commission, News Ltd said.

...

Former National Crime Authority chairman John Broome told News Ltd there were reports the mafia was regrouping in Australia.

"I have certainly seen references in more recent times to a resurgence of Italian (organised) crime," Mr Broome said.

If we reformed the drug laws, you would not have this kinda of traffic. The drug war is a losing war, just like probation. It won't stop unless we change the laws and not make this kinda of business so Lucrative.

America needs to do this, and any other country that has harsh laws for non-violent drug offences. If there is violence involved than that is another story.

With millions behind bars and the toll mounting every day, the war on drugs has

slipped the reins of metaphor to become a literal war, with civilian casualties.

And the Australians are allowing these narco trafficking terrorists sanctuary in their country.

Despicable!

Are you aware of how mafia operates ? They have their way of convincing people to accept what they do.

If we had a drug reform, that takes away the profit factor, just like probation. Of course it won't stop all crime, but there would be a lot less crime.

Do you see them committing crimes to obtain alcoholic, when was the last time you went to an underground place to get a few beers? What we have now is not working; I work in this field, so I am close to this issue. I have seen people with violence offences get early release because we don’t have room for them. The prisons our overflowing with non-violent drug offenders. Have you been to drug court lately? It is a nightmare, even law enforcement and judges are starting to understand that probation is not doing it. Throwing a drug addict into max prison is not the solution. I came in to the field with a different view, but after what I have seen, heard, and work with, my views have changed. Go and spend a day in criminal court, masses of masses of people, and 9 times out of 10 it is for non-violent offences. I find it hard to swallow that a murder can get less time than a person that gets arrested for cocaine. Yes it happens, sadly.

News media play up public fears to sell copy. Politicians sell themselves as being "tough on crime." Every year, they ban more activities, and pass longer prison sentences, more forfeiture laws, and higher enforcement budgets. The next year they repeat this same ritual. Well paid bureaucrats scrutinize the legal system for glimmers of compassion, discretion and freedom to close the "loopholes." Drug warriors write Anti-This Acts and Omnibus That Laws and forbid discussion of reform. Human rights violations and conflicts of interest within the prison and law enforcement industries are accepted as a regrettable aspect of doing war. Another record size property seizure; more mothers in prison; one marijuana arrest every 49 seconds with over 11 million busts served; the biggest law enforcement budgets in history, the most sweeping and intrusive police powers ever.

Our government shows advanced symptoms of being addicted to its own Drug War. Politicians habitually increase their drug law dosage. Constantly looking for a stronger fix, they spend the nation into debt without getting satisfaction. Our leaders refuse to admit the destructive consequences of their behavior. Drug enforcement agents abuse the public trust. The media reinforce the negative behavior while living in morbid denial of their own role, like a co-dependent partner.

Lost in the frenzy is a simple fact. Illicit drug users are people, too. Most casual drug users are peaceful and productive members of society until they become casualties of the Drug War.

dregs of society? I consider pedophiles, murders, and a lot of politicians, someone who has and a substance abuse problem are not a dreg of society.
