Mexico: Prison guards let killers out, lent guns

Mexico: Prison guards let killers out, lent guns

MEXICO CITY — Guards and officials at a prison in northern Mexico allegedly let inmates out, lent them guns and sent them off in official vehicles to carry out drug-related killings, including the massacre of 17 people last week, prosecutors said Sunday.

After carrying out the killings the inmates would return to their cells, the Attorney General’s Office said in a revelation that was shocking even for a country wearied by years of drug violence and corruption.

“According to witnesses, the inmates were allowed to leave with authorization of the prison director … to carry out instructions for revenge attacks using official vehicles and using guards’ weapons for executions,” office spokesman Ricardo Najera said at a news conference.

The director of the prison in Gomez Palacio in Durango state and three other officials were placed under a form of house arrest pending further investigation. No charges have yet been filed.

Mexico: Prison guards let killers out, lent guns

These are civil servants working for the Mexican government. The SAME government that Barack Hussein Obama fawned over, the SAME government that is presided over by a man that stood on the floor of OUR Congress and denigrated Arizona, it’s push for REAL immigration reforms, and America in general, Felipe Calderon.

I am not an alarmist, I am a truth teller.

I have a lot of very strong ideas and attitudes concerning Mexico, the folks that run the place, as well as the ILLEGALS that filter through there and into our nation and economy, but I reserve my most vehement contempt for the government of this United States of America and those in power in Washington, D.C., from the President right down to every Senator and Congressman!

Their utter lack of doing ANYTHING to truly protect this nation from the SCUM that lies just below our southern border, or that which has seeped into this nation and brings us down to Third World status is what angers me the most. That, and the continued stupidity of the Obama Regime as they continually try to foist Calderon off on Americans as a caring, benevolent leader and ally.

Prosecutors said the prison-based hit squad is suspected in three mass shootings, including the July 18 attack on a party in the city of Torreon, which is near Gomez Palacio. In that incident, gunmen fired indiscriminately into a crowd of mainly young people in a rented hall, killing 17 people, including women.

The situation in Mexico brings many thoughts to mind, first and foremost for me being the utter corruption that runs rampant throughout the entire nation.

All levels of Mexican government, the military, Los Federales, Los Policia and politicians, ALL of them are totally corrupt, with a hand out for any form of graft they can find. And Obama seems to be OK with that, from a country he calls a strong ally and friend.

Over the weekend there was a story that went viral on the web, Ranches had been invaded in Texas. The story has so far turned out to be totally false.

There have been a few reasonable blog sites that discredited the story right from the start, this blog was one of them, because, you see, I DO have great resources here in Texas and I was shocked that those sources couldn’t confirm an INVASION. :?

There IS a possibility that a story such as this could actually come to fruition in the near future, a very distinct and believeable possibility, given the weak border defenses we have with Mexico. What this bogus story DID do is point out the possibility of armed invasion as a real threat.

Given the propensity of the Mexican government, the Cartels and many Mexican citizens to break laws, OUR LAWS, and given the obvious lack of *give a damn* exhibited by the Obama regime, it only stands to reason that a corrupt nation such as Mexico could, and probably WILL spawn an armed invasion across our border.

What do you suppose the reaction from the Obama regime would be?

Mexico has long had a problem with investigating crimes, catching criminals and convicting people. Reports estimate less than 2 percent of crimes in Mexico result in prison sentences. But Sunday’s revelation suggests that even putting cartel gunmen in prison may not prevent them from continuing to commit crimes.

GDP: Growing Democrats’ Programs

June 23rd, 2010 . by TexasFred

GDP: Growing Democrats’ Programs

Bear with me as I make a strong and valid point concerning the less than stellar performance of the United States Congress. This is a lengthy post but one I believe needs to be seen.

Let me start by saying; I once had a very high level of respect for my Congressman, Sam Johnson, I had… I pretty much lost that respect after the Mexican president Felipe Calderon was given free rein on the floor of the U.S. Congress a while back.

This is the message I sent to Mr. Sam Johnson, concerning the Mexican president being allowed to tear America apart from the floor of Congress while our Congress Critters sat there and applauded, or did NOTHING to stop this never before heard of debacle:

White House, Democrats Applaud Mexican President

Congressman Johnson:

I wrote a VERY heated story on my blog, http://texasfred.net/archives/6743

I am not at all kind to ANY member of Congress at this time, and Sir, I include you in this.

I have but one question for you Congressman:

WHY IN THE HELL DIDN’T ALL OF THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS STAND UP, FLIP THAT MEXICAN SON OF A BITCH OFF AND WALK THE HELL OUT OF CONGRESS?

That’s the question asked on my blog, and some of my readers are getting very graphic in opining as to all the reasons why!

Sincerely,
TexasFred

Mexican prez slams death of migrant at US border

Mexican prez slams death of migrant at US border

MEXICO CITY (AP) – President Felipe Calderon said Monday that the death of a Mexican migrant after being shot with a stun gun by a U.S. immigration officer was an unacceptable human rights violation.

Migrant Anastasio Hernandez was shocked by a Customs and Border Protection agent May 31 at the San Ysidro border crossing between Tijuana and San Diego. A U.S. coroner has ruled the death a homicide.

Calderon said he wanted to repeat Mexico’s “energetic protest of the torture and death of Anastasio Hernandez, a Mexico who died at the hands of North American migration authorities.”

He later added that authorities would have to clarify whether the death involved torture or took place while bringing Hernandez under submission.

“But a death with that degree of violence is a truly unacceptable violation,” Calderon said. “We need to raise all our voices, not only for Mexico but for human rights, because the cause of migrants is a cause that affects us all.”

I have a personal message for Felipe Calderon, one that our president and Congress were too gutless to express!

Drug-torn Mexico favors scrapping municipal police

Drug-torn Mexico favors scrapping municipal police

MEXICO CITY (AP) – Mexico’s president is urging approval of a plan to replace local police departments with state forces so the government can better fight unrelenting drug violence that has claimed nearly 23,000 lives.

Part of the goal is to root out corruption by replacing generally low-paid, poorly educated local police, who are seen as more susceptible to bribery and intimidation by the powerful cartels.

Full Story Here:
Drug-torn Mexico favors scrapping municipal police

If the goal is to root out corruption, forget about it. Mexico is the definition of corruption.

It also aims to streamline operations and improve communication between police, President Felipe Calderon told a public safety commission Thursday before it approved the plan at the end of a three-hour session.

And it will expedite the movement of money through the hierarchy of Mexican government.

“We want a safe Mexico in which there is no room for the fear, violence and impunity that we suffer today,” Calderon said.

Sounds great Mr. Calderon, a safe Mexico, something that has NEVER before existed. Ever!

Mexico’s Public Safety secretary first floated the idea last year, but it received a lukewarm response because some officials worried that it would be hard to police many of Mexico’s 2,439 municipalities if local departments were eliminated. Only 12 of Mexico’s 31 states even have their own police forces.

Mexico’s idea of State Police is an infusion of Federales. Mexican army troops. Supposedly ones not yet fallen into the clutches of the cartels. Supposedly.

What I see in the making is a federalization of the Mexican police and a military buildup that will, in many cases, be very close to our border.

OUR border! A border that is already terribly undermanned and poorly defended. The inclusion of 1,200 National Guard troops along our border, unarmed troops I might add, as proposed by Barack Hussein Obama, will do NOTHING to alleviate the dangers we face from Mexico already, never mind the idea of Federales running wild along our borders as well.

There are already stories in the news of Mexican army troops making side trips over the U.S. border SOURCE 1 SOURCE 2 and confronting a U.S. Border Patrol agent. SOURCE 3 SOURCE 4

This is NOT news, it happened in 2004, 2005, 2006 and quite likely is still happening if the media were allowed to make a full and unbiased report.

So far, the military and federal police have led the war against drug cartels launched shortly after Calderon took office in December 2006.

Hot damn, they have led the charge and waged the war. Can anyone tell me what progress has been made? Does Mexico have any less drug traffic or cartel violence today than it had prior to Calderon taking office? It seems that the cartels are going outside the normal channels and are getting themselves some hired help, some type of mercenary help perhaps? SOURCE

And to give further citation to my belief that there isn’t an honest cop or soldier in Mexico, many troops have already made the change over to the other side. Money, food, luxury, those are some serious motivation for a Mexican army trooper, even Officers are moving over to the side of the cartels, the incentives are just too good to pass for them! SOURCE

A recent high-profile campaign to fight extortion and kidnapping by compiling a registry of cell phone users around the country ended up going awry, however, after the users’ personal data turned up for sale on two websites.

Prosecutors are investigating, Interior Department spokesman Luis Estrada said Thursday.

Prosecutors are investigating? That’s funny, I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there!

Mexican prosecutors can’t find a tortilla in Juarez. The list from the registry was probably sold, by someone already working for the Mexican government in conjunction with the cartels, if not actually working FOR the cartels and doing the old Double Agent thing too.

The mayor of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico’s deadliest city with 2,601 drug-related killings reported last year, backed Calderon’s proposal and said municipal police are often easy prey in small, close-knit towns.
