    Cartels are using the shrimp industry to hide heroine, cocaine, ect., because of the ability of shrimp and other fish products to hide the odor of illegal drugs;

    With the weakening shrimp industry caused by foreign imports, some probably fronts to bring Asian heroine, and other drugs, has had a Catch-22 effect, resulting in our domestic wild shrimp industry succumbing to cartel pressures to take control of the most successful means to bring illegal drugs into the United States, and in LARGE quantities;

    With using GPS to make off-shore drops and pickups, and so many boats with such large cargos, moving in and out at all times of the day an night, in so many miles of shoreline--in Cameron County alone;

    And, in my opinion, with the Cameron County law enforcement probably on the side of the cartels, because they pay better, it is easy to see how our border in Cameron County is over run;

    The Cameron County border has become an attractive place for many mafia / criminal business investors, often purchasing legitimite companies as fronts to launder cash and have a justifible reason for lots of merchandise movement back and forth;

    Most of these businesses use illegal immigrants to do their legal work, as well as their illegal tasks, because these workers are easy to manipulate and will do a lot for very little money.

    7 jailers suspended amid probe of inmate beating

    Allegations of prisoner abuse prompted Cameron County Sheriffs Department
    officials to suspend six county jail guards and a supervisor over the past
    2 days.

    Sheriffs Department officials said the Sunday evening jailhouse beating of
    federal inmate Javier Alejandro Garza, 20, remained under investigation
    Friday but a sergeant and 6 guards were put on paid leave on Thursday and
    Friday.

    Garza told his attorney and family that he was handcuffed, dragged out of
    his jail cell and beaten by guards outside the view of security cameras
    sometime after 6 p.m. Sunday.

    Garzas attorney Rene DeCoss told The Brownsville Herald on Tuesday that
    his client sustained a broken jaw and possibly a broken rib and was not
    able to eat on his own after the thrashing.

    Although he could not identify the guards or sergeant, Chief Deputy Gus
    Reyna said they were all hired during the administration of former Sheriff
    Conrado Cantu.

    Federal officials moved Garza from the Carrizalez-Rucker Detention Center
    in Olmito on Thursday to a federal detention center near Raymondville.

    U.S. Marshals spokesman Gene Diaz told The Brownsville Herald on Thursday
    that his office, the FBI and Sheriffs Department are investigating Garzas
    claims together.

    Diaz said 325 federal prisoners are housed in the Carrizalez-Rucker
    Detention Center, but there appeared to be no need to transfer any of
    them.

    According to federal court records, Garza was sentenced to 18 months in
    prison and 3 years probation in December 2003 for a federal drug charge.

    U.S. District Judge Hilda Tagle revoked Garzas probation in March after he
    tested positive for drugs.

    Family members said Garza has drug problems, but is not a violent person
    and has never been involved with gangs.

    Reyna said the investigation could be concluded early next week.

    If any guards are found guilty of wrongdoing, Diaz said they could face
    federal criminal charges.

    Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio was keeping mum following Thursday’s free speech lawsuit in state district court against the county.
    Former jail chaplain Gail Hanson filed the lawsuit, alleging the county, through Lucio, violated her right of free speech when he banned her from the jails in retaliation for criticizing conditions.

    Friends don't let friends eat farm raised shrimp--one thing we can do is agree to pay a little more, and buy domestic shrimp; at least more of the money stays in the US;

    Broke shrimpers are bad for American security; broke shrimpers become tempted to not be broke and to use use their boats for illegitimate means to survive: in the Port Isabel / South Padre Island / Brownsville / Cameron County area this means transfering illegal aliens and illegal drugs across the delta from Mexico to the United States.

    All the US shrimpers want to do is survive in a tough economy, where competing with farm raised shrimp from China is impossible: Washington politicians created this situation by failing to protect our domestic industries in favor of corporate America being able to sell a cheaper product to the consumers;

    (FYI: Walmart is by volumne the largest importer and distributer of foreign farm raised shrimp in the US).

    Letters show strong support for ex-captain: Law officials send judge uniform message about Rodriguez.(Letter to the Editor)
    The Brownsville Herald (Brownsville, TX)¬*|¬*January 01, 2006¬*|¬*Copyright

    Byline: Emma Perez-TreviNo, The Brownsville Herald, Texas
    Jan. 1--Support for former sheriff's captain, Rumaldo Rodriguez is strong in Cameron County's law enforcement divisions. Letters of support from officials --including some once part of former Sheriff Conrado Cantu's scandalized administration --were sent with pleas for leniency for Rodriguez, who was sentenced in December to 14 months in federal prison for racketeering as part of Cantu's criminal enterprise.
    Cantu was sentenced to 24 years and two months after pleading guilty to a federal racketeering charge. No letters of support for the former lawman were found in the public record. The former sheriff was named the ringleader of an organized crime operation that catered to drug dealers, among other illegal activities. U.S. District Judge Hilda G. Tagle's court received several letters on Rodriguez's behalf before his Dec. 13 sentencing. Cantu and three others involved in the case were also sentenced the same day. Tagle was not available…

    When certain families are the ORGANIZED criminals literally being the owners of illegal casinos and illegal drug distributers, and also being the judges and law enforcement, how can citizens of the United States expect illegal immigrants to not pass through this corrupt first line of defense?

    These "guardians" of our society in Cameron County cannot even police themselves, and you expect them to keep out hordes of illegal immigrants?

    http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/PL3P3PE5AO7FJXL4TIA2CSXWNI


    It is difficult to find a higher concentration of PUBLICIZED moral indecencey, incompetence, greed, and dishonorable behavior than Cameron County law enforcement--do you think these cops realize how embarrassing they are to the rest of us when they actually attend state and national events, such as the police games?

    Please, spare us what little dignity our county has and don't leave Cameron County--especially in uniform, and as representatives of the rest of us;

    We already are subjected to your shake downs, assaults, humiliations, abuses, and flood of NARCOTICS--spare us the indignation of pretending you are Olympic athletic hero cops running the race of justice for Cameron County and the home team;

    You are not heroes, but cartel collaboraters. . .

    . . .and traitors to America.

    Respect is earned--and lost.
