Media outlets in DC are reporting that federal authorities charged two men for smuggling drugs from Mexico into Prince William County in semi-trailers today. Details about this case are scant, and WTOP and Fox 5 are both reporting pretty much the same information which strongly suggests both of them are reporting based only on press releases at this point. What we already know is rather disturbing, though.
We know that a man from Manassas and a man from Gainesville were charged, that they tried to run at least three tractor-trailer loads of drugs valued in the tens of millions of dollars into Prince William County from Mexico. One or more of those truckloads was intercepted, and from the language in the WTOP report it seems that at least one of those truckloads was not intercepted. We also know that moving such huge quantities of drugs from Mexico into the United States doesn’t happen without the approval, if not direct involvement, of the same Mexican drug cartels that have murdered 40,000 Mexicans in the past few years.
We’ve seen Mexican drug cartels operating in the area in 2011, had the opportunity to nip this sort of problem in the bud, and apparently failed to do so. Charlie Deane probably was concerned it might make too many illegal aliens uncomfortable if he tried to aggressively contain these murderous thugs who regularly commit utterly disgusting atrocities that make war crimes look like child’s play. With new leadership at the helm of the PWCPD, we have one more chance to get this right. One.
The unanswered questions here are enormous. Drug dealers don’t just park tens of millions of dollars worth of drugs in a trailer behind the local Wal-Mart in hopes no one molests it. They have a secure location, watched over by drug gangs who protect that cargo until it is broken down and distributed to wherever it has to go. That requires a local organization, with ties to Mexican drug cartels to be operating under the cover of the pool of illegal aliens that still plague the county, that manages, protects and distributes these shipments. We don’t yet know how big that operation is, or where it has been operating, but you can be absolutely certain it exists.
At this point the Prince William County Police Department hasn’t said a word about this. A federal drug operation involving wholesale drug shipments from Mexican cartels isn’t likely to happen without the knowledge of local authorities — at the very least local authorities would be notified when suspects start getting arrested. Perhaps there are active investigations still ongoing and there’s some objective reason to try to keep secret that this is going on at the same time federal authorities are announcing these arrests, but it doesn’t occur to me. We need some answers here, and pretty quickly, as residents deserve to know whether the security situation in this county is rapidly degrading because of trans-national drug cartels expanding their operations locally amidst President Obama’s offer of amnesty to illegal aliens.
