    Mexican Drug Cartel Allegedly Puts a Price on Arizona Sheriff's Head

    Mexican Drug Cartel Allegedly Puts a Price on Arizona Sheriff's Head

    On the day parts of Arizona's immigration law, SB 1070, went into effect, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is in the news for another reason: there's a price on his head - allegedly offered by a Mexican drug cartel.

    The audio message in Spanish is a bit garbled, but the text is clear.

    "It's offering a million dollars for Sheriff Joe Arpaio's head and offering a thousand dollars for anyone who wants to join the Mexican cartel."

    A man who wants to remain anonymous says his wife received the text message Tuesday evening. It also included an international phone number and instructions to pass the message along.

    "She showed it to me..I was kind of disgusted..I reported it to the Sheriff's department yesterday..they said they were going to direct the threat squad on it."
    Obama will probably remain completely quiet on this. Of course, the sherrif is a Republican, so who can blame him.

    A huge part of this illegal immigration law in AZ is designed to stop the massive amounts of drug trafficking that is being ignored from coming across their borders.

    Just another bullet in the chamber of what is going to be a helluva fight in the coming days. And as always, the liberals are on the wrong side, this time aiding and abetting the types that make threats like this.

    That's probably the best news scumbag sympathizers have heard.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Doing the right thing often carries a price.

    That's frightening. I hope they can trace the source through the international phone number. It would appear the Mexican drug cartel may be upping the ante. That would most likely be a very big mistake.

    Its physically, the sheriff's head. To earn the million, the sheriff's head must be chopped off and sent to the cartel

    I don't think that'd be any problem if it's true or, the greater tragedy, if it's NOT true, but someone does it anyway. Ever hear of the Columbian Necktie?

    A Colombian necktie is a method of execution where the victim's throat is slashed (with a knife or other sharp object) and their tongue is pulled out through the open wound. It was a frequent method of killing during the Colombian history period called La Violencia that started in 1948 after the leader Jorge Eliecer Gaitan was murdered.

    Yes, I'm very familiar with that of type of necktie.

    The issue here is that, the cartel with up the stakes (1m to 2m to 3m, etc, etc) until they get results

    Hell, even the sheriff's friends or family may be tempted to do the deed

    If this can be traced back to the cartels and anything happens to this man, they may well have brought the wrath of God down on them. If the U.S. wakes up and decides to devote real resources to solving this problem, these cartels will be swatted like a mosquito on an elephant. Personally, I kind of doubt they are involved. It would be SUCH a stupid thing to do.

    The Cartels knows it's safe till 2012. Right now, if someone... does the deed, the OBama Admin might sue the Arizona PD for investigating the issue... afterall, that might result in "racial profiling".
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
