The police force is a recruiting “pool” for the cartels and many police officers become violent murderers working closely with the cartels to slaughter innocent people at the request of their cartel bosses (Padgett, T. (2011)). Many people, not just police officers, work for the cartels in order to make more money to provide for their needs, and the needs of their
Forty seven-thousand murders, thousands kidnapped, and thousands tortured surely someone is to blame, and surely someone can stop, or contain the violence. No, in today’s day and age amazingly there is no one, no agency, and no government willing to tackle this problem, as if doing so would be an indication of blame. From the numbers given above one might think I am referring to a large scale war, genocide, or even the Holocaust. The forty seven- thousand murdered people and thousands of others that were kidnapped and or tortured are actually the victims of the Mexican drug cartel violence. Why will the president and congress go to war to protect U.S. citizens from terrorism?
There polices officers that arrested men with weed just to keep it and sell it back to another drug dealer so that they make money off of it. It’s just a lot of crazy under hand work that is going on. Why can’t we just find police that actually do the job and stop beating the system? There are
In the article it reports on the growing violence of drug gangs that are menacing the U.S. - Mexico border. Details of the violent acts of Heriberto Lazcano, how the Mexican government's efforts to stop such activity have failed, people employed by the largest drug cartels, incidents of murder and kidnappings, and the reaction of the president of Mexico Vincente Fox (TIME Magazine). Choosing this source was not hard; TIME has a reputation of reliable information; to withhold this reputation TIME Magazine does not put stories and headlines to spread gossip, rather use their magazine and writers to inform the nation of big events happening near or far away. There is no question that TIME Magazine is one of the most reliable and consistent magazines to read, for the magazines work to distribute story worthy new about past, present and future problems, in a serious and direct manor. The usability of the source for a college level course is the best bet to get information accurately, stray away from gossip and focus on the real issues at
John Dillinger, was born on June 22, 1903 and like any other kid that grew up in a big city like Indianapolis he sought potential and one way Dillinger knew how to get things was by stealing. This man owns some of the greatest robberies that have ever happened. On top of that John Dillinger was nearly invincible, this man could escape almost any situation you put him until he was killed. He was actually well liked by the people because many people compared him to the folktale Robin Hood. By the age of ten he and his buddies were stealing coal they had “pinched” from the Pennsylvania Railroad gondolas.
The Mexican Drug Wars which have brutally caused harm to the people of Mexico are spilling over into the United States through the entrance of illegal immigrants. Contrary to common belief, the threat of violence has infiltrated the country beyond just the bordering states. Violence from Mexican gang members has reached areas as far from the border as Anchorage, Alaska (Caldwell 1). This is a serious threat to all U.S. citizens and could be avoided if the entrance of illegal immigrants could be ended. The Arizona immigration law would be instrumental in helping to keep illegal immigrants out of the United States especially because, “Arizona and Atlanta are seeing the worst of the violence because they are major drug distribution hubs thanks to their webs of interstate highways,” (Caldwell 2).
No one wants that type of police force in their community. People want to feel protected by them, not living in fear that if they do the littlest thing wrong like get a traffic ticket they will get beat. They know in America cases like that are rare and compared to theirs, the government is pure. So why would they not want to come to the “land of dreams”? They have nothing to lose and maybe they want something to
Drug Trafficking in the United States Michelle Patterson Eng 122 Prof. Benjamin Daw October 1, 2012 Drug Trafficking 2 The purpose of this topic is that I want to inform people about the social, and the ethical effects that drug trafficking has on upon our society. From people robbing others to families stealing from each other to leaving children without one or both parents, drugs have affected our daily lives. Some addicts spend so much time and money trying to obtain drugs or under the influence of drugs that they neglect their family, friends, and work. I will show through statistics how drug trafficking affects our economy, and introduce you to some low-level offenders that have had stiffer sentences than others simply
This war has created ripples that are felt in all parts of the criminal justice system. The systematic and aggressive arresting of drug offenders found us having a need to create drug courts. These courts were quickly duplicated and other states created them to help with the amount of arrests. These arrests and long sentences have caused an overcrowding problem that has gotten out of hand. Studies have shown that the aggressive arrest tactics and longer sentences for drug offenses has not curbed drug use and has not made our streets any safer.
Drug Trafficking in United States: Use of Mules During my preliminary search into drug trafficking in the United States, I was shocked to discovered I am living in a high location involved in drug trafficking. Although Texas is identified for many crimes involving the Mexican cartels, one underline fact is the drug trafficking and the use of “mules”. “Mules,” are the use of human or vehicles to transport narcotics into the United States. According to recent reports by the Drug Enforcement Administration or DEA (2012) “recent interagency intelligence assessment approximately 65 percent of the cocaine smuggled into the United States crosses the Southwest borders with the aid of “mules”. The main reason I choose this topic is due to a recent involvement of a close friend of the family.
