Tucson Sheriff Authorizes Use of Mass Lethal Force Against Drug Suspects
Phoenix's Sheriff Joe Arpaio may have a rival in the category of worst Sheriff in America. Pinal County (Tucson)Sheriff Paul Babeu has announced his department will institute a policy authorizing (mandating) the use of lethal force against suspected drug smugglers.
"I've given specific instruction, no less than lethal force is going to be used. It's all lethal force only and we go into that environment knowing that we're likely expecting an armed threat from these people," Babeu said.
Good thing for this Sheriff's deputy, he's in Texas and not Tucson. [More...]
[Former Cameron County Deputy Sheriff]Jesus A. Longoria pleaded guilty on Friday. He admitted to attempting to allow a load of semi-automatic firearms to be unlawfully exported into Mexico in exchange for money. He said the weapons were on their way to the cartels.
Whatever happened to "serve and protect"?
