Another British twit extradited to the USA

The extradition of 65-year-old retired British businessman Christopher Tappin to the USA last Friday sparked off the plethora of nonsense in the British media that seems to rear its parochial head whenever any Brit who wears a suit to work is accused of a financial crime overseas.The story almost always seems to go like this: Honest Brit sent to hell-hole U.S. prison where he/she faces imminent death from prison gangs and, if he/she survives that, will spend the rest of his/her life in prison on baseless charges trumped-up by U. S. prosecutors. News organizations will often shamelessly campaign on behalf of the defendant, ignoring any evidence of guilt, no matter how incriminating.
