    Hope he’s OK. I have a guess what happened.

    This sort of news bothers me a lot from a lot of perspectives. How does someone, likely new to the country, disappear from a busy train station? Hopefully, multiple security cameras around the station reveal what happened. I will keep my secondary commentary to myself until more info is garnered.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close bad cases.

    The DOJ (Department Of Justice) have been using torture to help fabricate evidence and punish suspects for many years.

    Torture has been used for twenty to thirty years before it became reported by mainstream media in the U.S. after 9/11. This is the worst kind of torture since is used on Americans in America in blatent clear violation of the Bill of Rights.

    The DOJ commonly use sleep deprivation, drugging, humiliation, physical stress positions, threats of violence and threats of death to reduce suspects. Reduced suspects respond better to suggestion and hyptotism which in turn make for higher conviction rates.
