gfid: Seriously, just say "no" if someone offers you a free vacation
IRQ12: PunGent: IRQ12: PunGent: IRQ12: AngryDragon: Is it so hard when the security agent asks "did anyone else pack your bags?" to just say "yes, i am acting under duress"?Pretty hard when you packed your bag full of drugs and are not acting under duress.Unless the cartels made credible threats against their families. Those guys go in for beheading; you think a little blackmail is above them?/Drug Warriors have a lot to answer forNo I don't doubt that is plausible but the "free trip and X$" mule thing is a lot more plausible seeing as it has been done a lot. There's even a link above with pretty much the exact same story where the person admits to the scheme.If there was an coercion it was probably them trying to back out after they were there. Just guessing but I think what the person above said is the most likely scenario, they've done it before and are just using that as an excuse because what else is there?Yeah, I'd go even odds on the whole blackmail vs. willing accomplice thing. Just wouldn't want to discard it out of hand.Why? One is a well known scheme and the other is something two people are saying to try and save their ass. You give equal merit to both possibilities?
