Mortgage fraud is terrible, but as crimes go it is a sign of how peaceful so much of the world has become:
A man once convicted of heading up a ruthless Haitian death squad that
is blamed for raping and killing political rivals has been convicted of
carrying out a mortgage fraud scheme in the United States.
Emmanuel "Toto" Constant, 51, former leader of the Front for the
Advancement and Progress of Haiti, or FRAPH, was convicted Friday of
arranging millions of dollars in fraudulent financing for three
Brooklyn properties, according to a statement from the New York
attorney general’s office.
