Three beheadings in two different states and they happened here in the United States, not Mexico. Former DEA supervisor Phil Jordan says all three beheadings have cartel written all over them. They happened in Arizona and Oklahoma in the past year.

A murder mystery is now unraveling on a stretch of North Reservation Road in Tucson, Ariz. County workers found a headless man lying on the side of the road Jan. 6. The man’s hands and feet were reportedly missing, too.
“It would lead me to believe the message wanted to be sent. This is one of the ways they do it in Mexico, Colombia and other places,” says Jordan. Jordan says the cartels are getting bolder in carrying out their beheadings across the border. He says we only used to see these crimes in Mexico.

“They don’t have any borders,” says Jordan.

More than 600 miles from the border, a 19-year-old human trafficking victim was found beheaded in Oklahoma. Carina Saunders was stuffed into a bag and left in a grocery store parking lot. “People know if they get on the wrong side of the fence, they’ll be dealt with,” says Jordan. The police chief in the area says two men running the trafficking ring killed Saunders to send a message to the other victims. Jordan says the cartels’ calling card is all over this case. Trafficking and smuggling are their top moneymakers. Revenge is the price of doing business.

“Definitely a cartel hit,” says Jordan.

Stop the War on Drugs, and you stop the DEA from providing guns to the Cartels…Vote for Ron Paul, decriminalize drugs…and these guys go away, hopefully assholes like Eric Holder go away as well.

    I too don’t like Eric Holder. But I’m not sure I agree with the logic here. Because, once a criminal – ALWAYS A CRIMINAL! (Hasn’t Eric himself taught you that?)

    You really need to understand that “decriminalization” is not necessarily legalization. All you do by decriminalizing something is wind up stuffing the lower courts with more cases since you essentially just move felony cases over to misdemeanors. Either way, the current drug trade is still going to be “illegal.”

    And as long as there is a demand for an illegal product “decriminalizing” possession, transportation, sale or even consumption doesn’t necessarily mean that any of the criminals are going to go away either. In fact, decriminalization may actually result in an increase in criminal numbers. Because once criminals realize they will never do any real jail time or pay heavy penalties (like they do now) for breaking drug laws more and more of them may decide to try and work the market.

    The only answer is to totally legalize drugs and move it to a safer setting where it can be regulated, controlled and possibly even taxed! Decriminalization is not the answer. Out and out legalization is necessary in order to take the bread (money) out of the mouths of criminal gangs and cartels.

    And quite frankly, if you want to stop the border wars then all you really need to do there is start shooting! (What parts of “invasion” or “war” don’t you understand?!)

    Drugs in Portugal: Did Decriminalization Work?

    The paper, published by Cato in April, found that in the five years after personal possession was decriminalized, illegal drug use among teens in Portugal declined and rates of new HIV infections caused by sharing of dirty needles dropped, while the number of people seeking treatment for drug addiction more than doubled.

    “Judging by every metric, decriminalization in Portugal has been a resounding success,” says Glenn Greenwald, an attorney, author and fluent Portuguese speaker, who conducted the research. “It has enabled the Portuguese government to manage and control the drug problem far better than virtually every other Western country does.”

    Too bad, but we have to do one thing at a time or nothing happens.  Baby step by baby step.

    Step 1.  Marijuana.  De facto decriminalization of  MJ via non-enforcement.  Cops know it’s “illegal” but it’s at the bottom of any priority they have.

    Step 2.  Stop classifying marijuana as a Schedule I narcotic.  It’s not a narcotic, nor does it belong in Schedule I.  Stop calling things by the wrong name.

    Step 3.  Get Jeebus out of our decision-making.  He’s been gone 2,000 years & he ain’t comin’ back.  Besides, He would be indifferent to MJ if He could weigh in today.

    Step 4.  Recognition that MJ is a Good Thing.  “A tokey a day keeps Alzheimer at bay.”

    Step 5.  Recognition by the powers-that-be that marijuana laws are unenforceable & counterproductive.  There’s the tough one.  Thick skulls can take decades to penetrate & generally they need to just die off.

    Cocaine doesn’t need to be illegal either.  Once Step 5 above has been accomplished for MJ, lather rinse & repeat for coca.

    Next up:  magic mushrooms—a wondrous sacrament if there ever was one.

    Outside of the Bible Belt this is true. Inside the Bible Belt, mood-altering drugs are sinful unless they are pharmaceuticals prescribed by a personal physician.

    Step 2. Stop classifying marijuana as a Schedule I narcotic. It’s not a narcotic, nor does it belong in Schedule I. Stop calling things by the wrong name.

    Hemp is the correct name, and it is a useful plant for many purposes.

    Step 3. Get Jeebus out of our decision-making. He’s been gone 2,000 years & he ain’t comin’ back. Besides, He would be indifferent to MJ if He could weigh in today.

    Jesus made wine from water. Wine is a mood-altering drug. Case closed.

    Step 4. Recognition that MJ is a Good Thing. “A tokey a day keeps Alzheimer at bay.”

    Hemp is also an anti-depressant and a pain-killer, among other things.

    Step 5. Recognition by the powers-that-be that marijuana laws are unenforceable & counterproductive. There’s the tough one. Thick skulls can take decades to penetrate & generally they need to just die off.

    It is truly difficult to control a plant that grows like a weed.

      What the frack does MJ have to do with the hard drugs the cartels are moving?

    The only reason we probably don’t hear about this on the mainstream news. Is likely said news organizations have yet to figure out how to spin it, to the political view point they prefer we had. Most likely a “pro-war” one. The same way they helped steer the US into a war with Iraq and Afghanistan, over the actions of a hand full of terrorists, not even from there.

    Why sheepole expect a criminal organization such as the USG( that openly supports narco-terrorism) to do anything as dramatic as solving the “war on drugs” will forever be a mystery of the ages.
    The new game for the future poor will not be “kick the can”, but rather, kick the head down the road…when , and only when, heads of political gangsters , hacks, and filthy rich “capitalists” start showing up under the HOLLYWOOD sign, well then maybe you’ll see a change for the better, but don’t hold your breath. Prayer and voting will not solve this nightmare…

    McCullough–you couldn’t find an image more on point? Or on point at all?

    I am taken by how dramatic your first image was. It was “shocking” and really made this thread stand out in bold.

    Its been awhile–don’t you have the coding to hide the image and you have to click on it to reveal it?===best of both worlds: respecting the sensitivities of many who come here while ALSO respecting the need for relevance of the rest of us?

    Only a little more work. I don’t think there is a right or wrong response/approach to this issue==just an approach that takes a direction. What satisfy a few when you can satisfy almost everyone?

    Let me go look for an image: start 6:08…….6:10. Yep. Googled death then drugs, lots of choices. Then (cartel violence) and every image you DON’T want to see is right there. Like any open air meat market…..and then…..you look more closely.

    Lets see: whats about the only way to make this kind of violence happen in civilized societies? Oh yeah—make drugs illegal. ONly those with high security fences and private guards support programs like this. Rick and protected.

    Really, that boarder fence will not stop them, it’s bullshit.

    To say that cartel violence has not crossed over is bullshit….since the 70’s it’s been here.

    And to call that 19 year-old a VICTIM is bullshit.
