14 kg Ecstasy Smuggled through YVR by non-white security screeners


Of the two security screeners at Vancouver International Airport facing drug trafficking charges, one has a prior conviction – raising serious questions about how he was able to keep his job.
Screeners Gurvinder Singh Pahl and Ajitpal Singh Judge are among three men allegedly involved in a plot to smuggle more than 14 kilograms of the drug ecstasy through YVR earlier this month.  CTV News has learned that 24-year-old Pahl, a Richmond, B.C. resident, was on probation for credit card fraud at the time. Despite his conviction, he was not fired.

Liberal Senator Colin Kenny says the incident highlights a clear gap in the system that must be closed. He says security screeners are only subjected to criminal record checks every five years.
"An awful lot can happen in a five-year period, and someone who has a clean record this year might not have one two years from now," Kenny said.

He also believes similar smuggling attempts fly under the radar on a weekly, if not daily basis in Canada.
"This is definitely the tip of the iceberg," he said.

The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, which represents screeners at YVR, says the charges are disappointing. They come as the union is working to rally public opposition to Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) decision to lay off screeners across Canada.
"There are 800 employees out here. I hope two don't taint the reputation of the other 798," said union representative Ronald Fontaine.more from ctv

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
