Well, like any tool, it's not inherently evil, it just depends how it's
used.  And in all likelihood, if it's used with respect to England,
in all likelihood it'll be used in moderation, since England has some
political visibility of its own.

The problem that I've seen in the work I do overseas is the coercive
methods and the economic side-effects thereof which the US State
Department use to affect these agreements in countries which have less
visibility than England.

So I don't support this sort of non-reciprocal extradition agreement.
Largely because I find it offensive to reduce or circumvent the
constitutional rights guaranteed by other soverign nations to their
citizens.
