Here's scary thing to ponder. What does one do with 11000 unemployed former DEA agents?


Slide them over to TSA, they will do much better than the former Walmart cashiers and stockers they employ now.

ps I hate the TSA

That's 11,000 people who would be great at working violent and/or financial crimes... you know, REAL problems in our country.

We could use them at the border, just shooting at the cartel pukes. Place one about every 250yds or so.

Anybody keeping track of just how diabolical the cartels are getting?

Houston Chronicle reports that they are kidnapping people and entering them into gladiator fight-to-the-death style games in order to train up-and-coming assassins:



Unbelievable.

Either that article was deleted within a minute of you posting...or it was a bad link.

Either way... sounds pretty comically (as in comic book sense) ridiculous

Ok, the link works now. Man that was a crazy article. Those people are insane, but I guess that's what it's like when there is a very low rate of law in the country. I remember going to a vacation part of Mexico over 5 years ago when things were "ok" and the police still all carried AK-47s (I really don't know my guns though, but looked like that type of model.)

Really...if their military isn't even working, the only good solution would be to legalize it in the US. And take out the Zetas.

Avert! How dare you express a practical idea?!

(mutters to self - Weinergate, Jennifer Aniston's new bob, LeBron, Katy Perry, NFL lockout, "The Voice", Facebook likes, pippa, Pippa, PIPPA....)

Feeling better. What were we talking about?

I read another article recently about a town where literally NOBODY would step up and run the police department. Everybody bailed... or was dead.

The mortality rate (in general & among police) was so high it was practically suicide to take the job.

Finally, a woman right out of college stepped up and took the reigns. She had her criminal justice degree and that was it. Just her in the big old empty police station with a single cruiser. 22-24 years old.

Sounds like a premise for a promising film, doesn't it??

Well, a premise for a promising short anyway.

that'd actually make a cool graphic novel/comic book series...Buffy meets High Noon.

(damn it, L.A. ruined me...)

High concept schmuckery! (is welcome round these parts)


Found the article!!!

Part One.

"Like winning a tiger in a raffle." I love that phrase.

Part Two.

No surprises there.

I think I became most passionate about this issue when I learned that the US is arming the cartels.

Alcohol Tobacco Firearms specifically...

We've turned an individual's personal choice (with possible harmful effects) into the imperialistic neglect of & slaughter of helpless people. We're more concerned about Mexicans escaping across border into the US. But jeez, can you blame them? Lawmakers in the US do everything they can to make life in Mexico miserable.

Yeah, well we armed the Taliban, too. Back then we called them "freedom fighters".

The enemy of my enemy is my friend, or so goes the logic.

Busy news day. The leader of the Zeta Cartel got gunned down. RIP "El Verdugo." Oh, and if it wasn't bad enough for you, the Zetas are using 16 year old girls as killers.


Still, no Jean Reno sitings.
