    Mexican Drug Cartels Fight Turf Battles In Chicago

    Riley is special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Administration Office in Chicago and in four neighboring states.

    Daily turf battles over drugs and distribution, he said, are turning parts of this Midwest city into a Mexican border town.

    "One of the hardest jobs I've had in the past couple of years is to convince our law enforcement partners that we need an enforcement mentality as if we're on the border," Riley said.

    Miles away, Riley says, Mexican cartels have a significant influence in Chicago's gang violence problem.

    More than ever, Chicago's problem is turning into a Midwest problem. Cartel operations are also spreading to Milwaukee, St. Louis and Detroit.

    I wonder if these are the same "Chicago values" Rahm Immanuel talked about a couple weeks ago?

    Remember the Miller-Budweiser turf wars of '06?

    Oh wait, that's right, it never happened because alcohol doesn't have a 10,000% profit margin subsidized by the DEA.

    No, they aren't.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Okay, what values are they?

    I notice our boy Immanuel has nothing to say. I guess Chick is an easy target and one doesn't have to do the job of mayor attacking a business that employs people. But doing the job about killing people requires effort.

    Al would have loved this.

    Please explain what a mayor's position on a corporate executive stance on gay marriage has to deal with drug cartels from Mexico and drug policy is decided by the federal government.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I don't get it. When a Republican is president - inner city violence is the fault of the lazy immigrants/black people living in the city who don't want a job. When a Democrat is in office, inner city violence is the fault of the Democrat for letting the immigrant people they let into the country. So when is it the fault of rabid right wing Republicans who criminalize the drug trade?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    windy city values:

    4 weeks ago: Rahm welcomes help from Farrakahn, ignores anti-Semitic remarks - Chicago Sun-Times

    no fried chicken sandwiches---but calypso hate is always a help

    free speech, y'know

    odd---calypso louis despises and thunders against gay marriage

    meanwhile americans, between bites of popcorn nuggets, are watching
