Jamaican poll: Drug lords suppress crime

UPI.com: "KINGSTON, Jamaica, June 15 (UPI) -- Extradition of alleged drug lord Christopher 'Dudus' Coke is likely to be followed by a crime wave on his Kingston turf, Jamaicans tell a pollster.

The poll, done for The Daily Gleaner, indicated a majority of those surveyed would be happy to get rid of Coke. But 69 percent said they believe theft and rape are likely to rise in Tivoli Gardens once the neighborhood is no longer protected by him."
