That Arizona Governor Sure is an Asshat

Imagine a governor saying something as ridiculous as implying that Mexicans behead people. Pffffft.

The Houston Chronicle:

Policeman possibly linked to Falcon Lake case beheaded

The head of a Mexican police commander presumed to be investigating the reported pirate attack against David Michael Hartley on Falcon Lake was delivered to Mexican military, sources said Tuesday.

State Rep. Aaron Pena, D-Edinburg, said he was told that Rolando Flores’ head was delivered Tuesday in a suitcase.

Ruben Rios, spokesman for the Tamaulipas state prosecutor’s office, told the Associated Press that Flores is the head of state investigators in the border city of Ciudad Miguel Alemán, a small city directly across the border from Roma, Texas.

Just a small nitpicky writing thing, Houston Chronicle. Stop saying he was the” head this” and the “head that” when the story is about him losing his head. Say he was “in charge.” You’re welcome.

Lesley Lopez, a spokeswoman for U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Laredo, said the head was delivered in the vicinity of Miguel Alemán.

The area is known to be under control of the Zeta drug cartel, which fiercely protects the remotely populated ranchland lining the Texas-Mexico border, as well as the Mexican side of the vast Falcon Lake reservoir.

Rios also told the Associated Press that the killing was unrelated to Hartley’s investigation.

Hartley has been missing since Sept. 30, when he and his wife took their personal watercraft into Mexican waters to photograph a partially submerged town.

Investigators have been hampered on this side by an inability to cross the border. Mexican investigators have meanwhile expressed fears of searching in Zeta turf.

The violence is entirely overblown and overstated. Anyone that is afraid of these barbaric maniacs is just a racist. Just ask a progressive.

    MSNBC reports that Obama says the Mexican police commander acted stupidly.

    If you don’t like being murdered you’re a racist.

    You know the last time things got really out of hand with Pancho Villa and his revolutionaries causing trouble on the US side of the border the president sent Black Jack Pershing into Mexico with 4500 men (including George S. Patton) to do something about it while the National Guard continued to battle it out on the border. What is being done now? Not a damn thing I would guess.

    Snipe….. Snipe….. SNipe….. SNIPE.

    I call bullshit on an inability to cross the border. And it’s very sad that the Mexican government will let someones death go uninvestigated out of fear of a drug cartel.

    Screw Mexican Sovereignity, they don’t really have a country any more anyway. An American citizen has been murdered. Send the freakin US Marines, a few thousand of them, in to secure the area for 20 miles or so around the lake until the search can be completed. Any “zetas” who decide to interfere may be freely turned into a smoking hole in the ground. Anything that moves within the corridor will be assumed to be a “zeta” and shot on site. Make it clear that any other crimes against Americans will be treated the same way.

    Johnny F – I like the plan. I’ve been thinking the same thing before but with Somali “pirates”. They don’t seem particularly well armed, and what with their spoils from previous heists, I bet we could get a pretty good ransom for any survivors!

    Prediction – we will have to send troops into Mexico within 5 years. Not occupy the country, mind you, but to create a “DMZ”. No choice, regardless of who is in office, public opinion will force it as violence spills over the border.

  13. [...] Then again, if one questions these Mexican barbarians and want to protect American citizens, you are called a racist. There is a larger issue here than just a case of a the murder of an American citizen, as if that [...]
