Mexican Mafia Gives “Green Light” To Kill AZ Sheriff (w/ video)
Eyeblast TV / The Blast ^ | 7/6/2010 | Joe Schoffstall

Posted on 07/06/2010 8:14:16 AM PDT by blog.Eyeblast.tv

The Mexican Mafia has threatened Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu with his life, ordering a “green light” to take him out for his support of Arizona’s new immigration law, SB 1070. A “green light” indicates that the assassin given the order must complete the murder or he will be killed himself, as will his family.

“I understand this threat, yet I will not run in fear or change my support for SB 1070 and my demands for President Obama to secure our border with 3,000 armed soldiers in Arizona and start building the fence again. I’m always armed and as every law enforcement member knows, we always have to be aware of our surroundings and possible threats,” he said.

If this man is killed, Obama will say it was because of his support for SB 1070. And that Enforcing immigration law is impossible.

A convincing argument can easily be made that Obama and the Democrats are directly responsible for this threat. And should this come to pass, they will have blood directly on their hands.

It was the Obama administration who went to China and other foreign contries to publicly decry SB 1070. It was Obama himself who hosted the Mexican President and apologized for SB 1070. They have kindled the flames of hatred and the liberals sit back and watch with glee as their hated countrymen in America stand under threat of loss of life.

It is a sad time in America. We have elected the Marxists bent on destroying this once unique and special land.

This is an act of war and the US has every right to invade Mexico. We should. It is corrupt and will not change until we force them to. We must because until we do we will continue to have the lawless neighbor that invades our country.

If he actually was stupid enough to say that, he might as well say "I will not be seeking reelection."

He will never say that.

Moreover, I seriously doubt the cartels are stupid enough to order the assassination of an American LEO.

That's the last thing they need - it would be much cheaper in the long run to find another sheriff who can be bribed.

Once upon a time, when American politicans still had a full set of b*lls, news such as this would have been the signal for armed incursions into Mexico and a settlement with force against force.

Now... well... whine, whine, whine, UN mealy mouth, sanctions, ACLU, and... nothing gets done.

It’s long past time for Jan Brewer to ask for volunteers to throw Mexican illegals out of Arizona. From those parts of the state now declared “Off Limits” to American citizens, to the border itself, armed citizens should be provided immunity from prosecution and a bounty should be placed on any and all illegals. All but gang members/drug runners would leave the state in a quick hurry. And 100,000 armed citizens would take them out as well. I’d be happy to join.

Perhaps. I'm not sold on that, however. When one looks at all the ill-conceived mutterings Obama has made since Jan. 2009, it's a possibility, IMO.

That's the last thing they need - it would be much cheaper in the long run to find another sheriff who can be bribed.

Judging by the number of assassinations, including those of government officials, in Mexico over the past year or two, I'd have to say their methods don't follow your logic. To a analytical mind, you'd be right. But that's not how they operate. They're scum, and act it out.

In Mexico it makes sense - they have more money and resources than any Mexican state government and they have a chance at controlling the situation politically as well.

Taking on the US government brings it to an entirely different level.

While this President may be a ditherer, if they act they would be guaranteeing that the next President wouldn't be.

Mexico sure is pushing hard for a border war, aren’t they?

Well, the best thing any third world toilet can do is get into a war with us- we rebuild them and give them lots of cash.

In the meantime, maybe it’s time for a bounty on drug runner scalps.

Not necessarily. Remember, Obama promised "up to" 1200 National Guard troops around a month ago. Since then, that figure has been changed downward, and there's no intention to put them on the border itself, or have physical contact with illegals.

The administration is preparing to sue Arizona over SB 1070, perhaps as early as this Thursday. Obama has said the Southern border can't be sealed, and controlling immigration is impossible. The administration has closed federal parks to American use because of the "danger" from cartels. This plays into the hands of the cartels, and gives them further reason to believe this administration is powerless.

Obama is all about making impressions; not doing what's right. The cartels understand this. It's why they think they can get away with making such a threat in the first place.

No, I don't see the cartels believing they have much reason to fear federal response to any great degree. Not to say it wouldn't happen, but the cartels are given little reason to expect it.

Not to mention, there will come a time when the violence WILL spill over to American soil. It's already happened (to a small degree) in El Paso, where gun rounds from a shootout over the border hit city hall. What's to say this won't be the first of it here in America?

Perhaps they didn’t find a sheriff they could bribe and they feel that O and his Justice Dept minions would “look the other way”. I pray for this man and his family and hope that he has security. The left doesn’t want to admit that we have lost control of our border states and the good citizens of those states are left swinging in the wind. I never thought in my life that I would see an American, especially an American law enforcement officer, threatened and have the government ignore it. Sad, sad, sad.

Stunning that this should break on the very same day that Obama SUES the state that has thrown up it’s hands and is taking up the slack of the US government.

Saying the feds WANT Arizona LEO’s to die is certainly going too far, but sadly the charge is no longer totally nuts.

The minute we don’t tolerate assasination of LEO’s by drug barons we become XENOPHOBES...?!

That was Columbia, where the government finally got serious in going after Escobar after the assassination of a presidential candidate. America joined Columbia in the operation, and Escobar was finally brought to justice.

This is Mexico, where the government is clearly inept (or worse) in handling the drug trade, and supportive of illegal immigration to America. We also have a much more pliant administration in office. I harbor serious doubts of what effective response we could expect from this administration.

The cartel’s mistake is that O will be around for just two years. After him will come the “reconciliation of accounts”.

The cartels just signed their own death sentences.

The “Mexican Mafia” is a prison gang. They are also in most local county lockups in So Cal, Ariz, N Mex, Tex, and Louisiana. The “MM” run drugs and guns for the Juarez Cartel. I believe this to be the most true.

This intel has probably already been passed on to the FBI, if it did not already originate there. If this man is assassinated, there will be a task force organized and La Eme, if they even did originate the threat, will wish they had not.

I suspect a big mouth underling. If he heats things up so that the whole organization is threatened by the above task force, he will be one of those headless corpses found in some mine.

The cartels wield the power to arbitrarily kill government officials south of the border with impunity. They do not have it here.

Yet.

Folks, there may come a day when a senior police official calls able bodied people to come to city hall and bring your weapons.

So you can be deputized.

I would hope your belief is correct. I'm not so sure. We have Obama admitting that controlling the border is unsustainable. We have the Justice Department refusing to act on Black Panther intimidation at poling places. We have Phoenix which, I understand, has the highest rate of kidnappings in the US; accountable to the operations of cartel drug activity.

Cartels may not have "impunity" yet, but they already deal quite openly, making our Southwestern states unsafe as Arizona has pointed out. And while we may have members or offices within our federal government willing to go after them should they act this out, will they be given a green light, based on the administration's admitted sympathies with Mexico, up to and including a federal judge allowing Mexico as a plaintiff against the State of Arizona?

All I'm saying is, what existed yesterday (in terms of obedience to the rule of law) doesn't necessarily exist today. It's a matter of will, and responsibility to America and Americans. I, for one, don't count on our federal government to do what's right. Not by a long shot...

It is time to declare the Border a free fire zone. You attempt to cross you get one warning shot. You keep coming or brandish a weapon you get shot. Period.

Given the number of armed drug gang members coming across the border, it's long past time for Gov Brewer to declare Arizona to be under invasion, demand the federal government act to fulfill its obligations under Article IV, section 4, and order the AZ National Guard to the border to repel invaders, with orders to fire upon any armed persons coming across the border.

Yes. We are talking about the same thing, only you are unfamiliar with the Spanish. The Mexican Mafia refer to themselves as “La Eme.” That is their initial, in Spanish They are in prisons all over the West.

Oh, I don’t know. I don’t think the cartels fear the US Federal government one bit. Although if something happens to the Sheriff, all hell is going to break loose in the 70-odd percent of the population that supports AZ.

You make excellent points.

I would argue that Escobar got his start as a serious druglord in 1978 when he started moving serious weight. It wasn't until 1982 that the Colombian cocaine wars got seriously underway, with multiple cartels murdering rivals and LEO's in the streets of Medellin and Cali and Bogota. After five years of street warfare, Escobar finally consolidated the whole Colombian cocaine industry.

Only then, when he began ordering targeted assassinations of anyone at all who displeased him did the Colombian electorate start to react. It was largely because of him that Colombia got a new Constitution in 1991.

Only after that did the Colombian government go full-force after Escobar and enlist the USA's assistance.

Mexico has yet to reach that stage - Mexico is in the 1985-1986 stage where there are still two main cartels (arguably three) vying for supremacy.

The news source presents this as if this sheriff asked for it by being out spoken against Juan’s McLame’s friends across the border. They claim that Mexicans in the US are threatening the sheriff as well.

Any arrests? Has Juan or the FBI said anything? Ofcourse not. They could care less if they get Americans slaughtered.

This is the way communists and their criminal thugs play together for power. O’Thugga needs to be held accountable for this, up close and personal.

I hope the law enforcement officers of Arizona do a pre-emptive strike on every known Mexican Mafia animal in the US.

We are going to end up at war with Mexico on US soil thanks to the representatives of Mexico in the GOP and DNC.

That's correct. Yet assassinations have gone on for over two years already. That's why I make the point of Mexico's inability (or worse) to deal with the situation. They may be in the 1985-86 stage, but are showing little sign of movement.

I just finished downloading/watching the video linked through this FR thread http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2547764/posts. It shows citizens who've taken action on their own regarding border incursions. This is what we've come to, and much of it due to the federal government's outright refusal to deal with the problem. A cautionary note; the video loads very slowly. It's over 122Mb in size, so resources can be an issue.

Obama, such as in his 6/15 Oval Office speech, loves to tout American ingenuity when it suits him. Yet he also openly touts our inability to control issues (such as the border) when that also suits him. The border can be closed and controlled. The border must be closed and controlled. Yet if Obama is unwilling to act today, will he and his administration be willing to step up should an elected official of one of our sovereign states be assassinated tomorrow? I surely hope so. I also surely have questions.

Recall rancher Robert Krentz? We already have a precedent set, albeit of a different magnitude. Yet what has been done by federal authorities to date...?

Indeed I do.

Sadly, the MSM spin is that he was murdered by some random illegal immigrant, not that he was specifically targeted for retaliation by an organized cartel.

That would be a much tougher sell if the target were a sheriff.

I agree, both on the spin and the "sell". Watching that video I referred to, the citizens who were featured, and who live with this daily, state unequivocally that the "breed" of illegal coming across the border today is much removed from the typical wannabe migrant worker.

Today, they're seeing a much more advanced, political incursion. These people are coming across with a purpose, and it's not employment. And that's because the cartels have gained control over the operation. This has truly become an invasion.

The media can spin all they want. Videos such as this tell the true story. And that story belies how safe the administration wants us silly poop heads to believe it is. It also is a heads up to what we can expect from these invaders.

Which would be the job of governor Brewer (since the feds have failed to act). There are a lot of dynamics at play here. SB 1070 to begin with. The administration's lawsuit against that bill yet inaction to fulfill its obligation to border security. A threat to a prominent county official. The State of Arizona sovereignty issue.

If something does happen to this officer (I pray it doesn't), it will be a catalyst. of what remains to be seen...

They are stupid enough. Consider US news from the eyes of an outsider. They see us as WEAK. Now is the time to strike us, now is the time to extract all the pain they can from us because they will never get another chance at all the cheap shots they can take.

Not that “unfamaliar” with La Familia “La Eme”. I believe their sign is both hands about mid-chest with the last three digits pointing down, on each hand, and both hands almost touching at base of the thumbs. I am no gang expert by any means, but I have been at the park near our house and have observed a few different fellows meet and greet each other.
