The body of a U.S. marshal has been discovered in Juarez, Mexico, according to the U.S. Marshals Service -- the latest discovery in a wave of violence that has gripped towns along the U.S.-Mexican border in recent months.

The body of Deputy Marshal Vincent Bustamante -- who was the subject of an arrest warrant accusing him of criminal theft of government property -- was found in Juarez on Wednesday, said Marshals Service spokesman Jeff Carter.

Chihuahua state police said the body had multiple wounds to the head -- apparently consistent with an execution-style shooting, according to Edgar Roman, a reporter with XHIJ television in Juarez.

A federal law enforcement source said Bustamante appeared to have been shot in the back of the head.

The drug money is so huge, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to learn that this corruption is widespread within our federal, state, and local governments and law enforcement.

I sincerely hope you're not right. But, it would be naive to believe otherwise.

Yeah there have been a few cases over the years that I remember. Seems that there was an illegal alien smuggling sting a few years back that caught several border and customs agents.

Just last year an albanian illegal was caught after he signed up to be a border patrol agent in the Detroit area. It was found that he had previously been ordered deported.

“...who was the subject of an arrest warrant accusing him of criminal theft of government property...”

Now, I bet he was supplying U.S. weapons to the drug cartel.

January 22, 1998 NYT:

44 Officers Are Charged After Ohio Sting Operation

In what may be the largest and widest ranging police corruption investigation in the country in recent years, 44 officers from five law-enforcement agencies were charged today with taking money to protect cocaine trafficking operations in Cleveland and northern Ohio, Federal authorities said.

The arrests were the result of a two-and-a-half-year Federal sting operation, which started out as an inquiry into organized crime in Cleveland, officials said. Along the way, investigators discovered a large ring of police officers and sheriff's department corrections officers who readily hired themselves out to be escorts and security guards for people they believed to be cocaine traffickers, but who were really undercover Federal agents.

''It's the largest I'm aware of,'' said Tron Brekke, deputy assistant director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Office of Public and Congressional Affairs in Washington, who until recently supervised the bureau's police corruption investigations. ''There are other cases that may have dragged on for a while and may have had as many officers involved. For a single day arrest, I don't recall anything even close.''

Mr. Brekke said he believed there had never been a police corruption case involving officers from so many different agencies.

The Cleveland case is the latest in a series of police corruption investigations that have struck cities across the country in recent years.

From 1994 to 1997, 508 officers in 47 cities have been convicted in Federal corruption cases, F.B.I. figures show. In many cases, not only has the police department involved been forced to overhaul its operations, but arrests made by the corrupt officers have been tainted and criminal convictions they helped secure have been overturned.

''What we're seeing is this pattern of greed and corrupt conduct, and it's happening all over the country, from the Southwest border to New England to California,'' Mr. Brekke said.

-snip-

But in a different way, the corruption that has emerged in recent years is also a sign of the times, experts say, driven by the emergence of the drug trade and the vast sums of money it generates.

''There is a new form of corruption,'' said William Bratton, the former Police Commissioner in New York City. ''It used to be cops took payoffs to look the other way, for what was usually a more benign activity like gambling, prostitution. What we're seeing now is the insidious aspect caused by the drug problem. There is more and more crossing the line to get involved in that business.

Either they provide protection or, as in New York, they would literally steal the drugs and then sell them themselves. Also what we're seeing is cops as criminals engaging in very significant violence to support their criminal goals.'

Where I live that's consistent with being in the wrong yard after dark.

They did like the shotgun, though.

Exactly. They use tunnels, subs, ultralights, helocopters and any other means to get drugs into the country.

I often wonder why they don't secure the border with troops. It would be so simple yet so effective...

—well, well—when I lived in New Mexico just north of the border thirty years ago, the deputies in law enforcement classes at the local junior college used to supply their girlfriends and classmates out of the sheriff’s dep’t stash of confiscated marijuana-—

When do we get to declare war on Mexico?

I've been saying this for years!!! Follow the money! Money that is laundered in this country, check out who the bankers are, who they are connected to, who to contribute to.

The 'drug smuggling' problem in this country could have been solved decades ago IF the feds were serious about it.

Maybe just a case of accidental aggravated suicide. We had a medical examiner in Harris County some years ago that would have so ruled.

There was also a BP in California that was discovered to be an illegal from Mexico- and had used false documents to become a BP.

Wasn’t there a cop in Chicago who was an illegal using his legal dead brother’s name?
