Memo Warns of MS 13 Plans to Kill Police Officers
team4news.com ^ | Oct 9, 2005 | Ray Pedraza

Federal agents believe they've intercepted intelligence from the notorious Mara Salvatruchas gang who seem to be planning to assassinate federal and local police in the coming days.

They have forwarded a safety memo to area authorities.

In the intelligence bulletin obtained by Action 4 News, a confidential informant in Virginia claims the Mara Salvatruchas have designated October 30 as "Kill A Law Enforcement Officer Day".

The memo cites the informant as someone who's provided reliable information in the past.

Reliable or not, Valley police aren't taking chances. In Hidalgo, chief Vernon Rosser believes everyone has their guard up.

"Along the Mexican border, I feel very comfortable that not only this agency but all the other agencies are paying attention to these bulletins," Rosser said. "We pay a lot of attention to the fact that we do have people that are in close proximity that are possible terrorists, or on death wish missions."

Rosser says the threats on officers safety are common. He says the best way to be ready is to train officers that every day is "kill a cop" day... saying even a traffic stop warrants the highest level of caution.

"And so people that are being involved in traffic stops, they should understand a lot of times they deem the officer of being aggressive but he's really being cautious because he has no idea who he's dealing with. It could be someone that's trying to fulfill October 30th, death day."

Rosser also believes that the date on the bulletin could be a deterrent. While his town could be a target he believes the Mara's will go elsewhere to carryout their threats.

"I feel that if something like this were to happen, it's probably gonna happen in a larger area where it's easier to do something like this and you can conceal yourself with a heavier population."

The bulletin originated with an agency called Federal Protective Services.

They say the MS 13's want to kill officers because of the pressure they are under from U.S. Customs agents "Operation Community Shield" - a nationwide initiative targeting violent street gangs.

Pretty good rule of thumb. Some folks are just itching for the chance, MS 13 or not. Be prepared, not paranoid.

This begs the question-

If MS-13 is a violent criminal organization largely made up of illegal aliens, why hasn't Homeland Security taken them apart like a cheap watch?

Four years since 9/11. . . still waiting. . .

I have read news reports where they are trying to do just that - however much of their operation is in Latin America.

I have also seen news reports where MS-13 may be engaged in helping to smuggle would be terrorists and explosives across our southern border for a large fee

LEOs have been putting a lot of pressure on the MS-13 gangs with all the sweeps, and the arrests/deportations that follow. They're cutting into their drug profits. I feel sorry for the beat cops. They've ALWAYS been sitting ducks.

And here our ultra-liberal county govts. surrounding D.C. are building nice comfortable illegal day-worker pickup stations for these nice fellows. Too bad they don't want to put that money towards throwing them out of the country. But, what's a few dozen police officer lives when it comes to showing liberal compassion toward illegal aliens...

Here in Houston, today there was a killing of a city police officer, in an office of an apartment complex in the southwest part of Houston. Could have been related.

There are gangs operating in this particular part of town and in that particular apartment complex.

IMHO, ICE and the military should join forces and take MS-13 out. Permanently.

I would imagine if MS-13 were to take out a few cops, there would be a very large number of MS-13 members getting killed while resisting arrest

I seem to recall a quiet ultimatum that J. Edgar Hoover gave to the Mafia when they were targeting Federal agents.

I really can't understand why we tolerate this scourge in our midst. Everyone will agree it's bad for the country. Why waste, time, energy and resources trying to control it? It can be eliminated fairly easily and quickly. Every police department in the country should develop a list of known gang members and declare open season on them.

Premptive Strikes will work just like with terrorists operating in Iraq and Afghanistan. Identify them and "pre empt" them.

Because of we didn't allow it, lettuce would be $10 a head. Or whatever other BS explanation it is that this administration is peddling this week.
