St Lucia: The Order of the MTTOs and the Decent and Respectable Drug Smugglers

In St Lucia the focus is on Gangland and gun violence as crime and violence in St Lucia is acutely politicized, which is an ongoing attempt to mystify reality on the ground to mask the complicity of the decent and respectable people, their involvement in and sale of impunity to the Colombian Capos of Bandas Criminales. The fact that the son of a Capo walked out of Bordelais Correctional Facility taking his entourage with him was a message to all and sundry on the impunity they wield in St Lucia. What has to be understood is the Colombian business model created by the Valle Norte organization which allowed citizens of St Lucia to purchase a load of kilo bricks and then pay Colombian smugglers to move it to Europe where the owner sold it to European cocaine brokers. These loads were moved via St Lucia and the rest of the Caribbean. These smugglers are shakers and movers in St Lucia, decent, respectable and outstanding citizens whilst their Colombian business model spawned a form of gangland noted for endemic violence as there was no Order, no discipline driven by a war for supply and dominance. The Mexican Transnational Trafficking Organizations (MTTOs), not no CARTELS as this is a white mystification of reality as the Medellin Federation and the Cali Organization were both under the Rule of the MTTOs with Mexicans on their Board, moved into the Caribbean took control as they have their own supply in Colombia and they control entry to the European market. They don’t sell their product to persons outside of their organization and their affiliates and the globalized organization includes European transnational organized crime that controls entry to Europe. The smugglers of St Lucia are then faced with a grave problem of supply and more importantly of entry to the favored European market. The MTTOs faced with an adversary noted for indiscipline and individual interest before organizational interest, they simply apply the rapacious strategy of informing on the whereabouts of their enemies’ shipments at the ports of entry and outside the ports of entry in Europe. This is the extent of this grave crisis that has has now enveloped the decent and respectable drug smugglers of St Lucia and drives the violence in Gangland. The MTTOs don’t need the services of these drug smugglers of St Lucia, they are of no strategic importance to the MTTOs, they are now dinosaurs as a failed order is replaced by the most potent order ever erected in the history of smuggling in the world. The change is now apparent in the emergence of the new Gangland in St Lucia where the Gangland affiliates of the MTTOs will grow rich and powerful through smuggling within this globalized transnational organized crime networks. The threat posed is organically different and unique in the history of drug smuggling in the Caribbean and the politicians are now faced with a new reality as this threat is simply not interested in purchasing impunity, as state capture is much more sustainable in the long run.
