In an appearance on "The O’Reilly Factor" on Tuesday Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) offered a strange defense of a stringent new Arizona immigration bill that could lead to racial profiling.
When asked by host Bill O’Reilly if he was comfortable with the possibility of racial profiling, McCain said he wold be "very sorry" if it happened, but suggested it’s justified because of "the people whose homes and property are being violated. It’s the drive-by that — the drivers of cars with illegals in it that are intentionally causing accidents on the freeway."
McCain added: "Look, our border is not secured. Our citizens are not safe." But the Arizona senator did not provide any additional details to back up his assertion about cars carrying illegal immigrants "intentionally causing accidents."
Crime rates in Arizona at lowest point in decades. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), the violent crime rate in Arizona was lower in 2006, 2007, and 2008 — the most recent year from which data are available — than any year since 1983. The property crime rate in Arizona was lower in 2006, 2007, and 2008 than any year since 1968. In addition, in Arizona, the violent crime rate dropped from 577.9 per 100,000 population in 1998 to 447 per 100,000 population in 2008; the property crime rate dropped from 5,997 to 4,291 during the same period. During the same decade, Arizona’s undocumented immigrant population grew rapidly. The Arizona Republic reported: "Between January 2000 and January 2008, Arizona’s undocumented population grew 70 percent, according to the DHS [Department of Homeland Security] report. Nationally, it grew 37 percent."
Crime rates have dropped during past decade in other border states. The BJS data further show that violent crime rates and property crime rates in California, New Mexico, and Texas dropped from 1998 through 2008 — the most recent year from which data are available:
My Bold Liar! Senator McCain has a Senate staff to research and fact check for him. I’m a blogger with 45 minutes to kill. Why can I find these facts and John McCain’s Senate Staff couldn’t?
Arizona rancher Robert Krentz was known as a Good Samaritan who would help injured illegal immigrants he encountered on his 35,000-acre ranch near the Mexico border.
He would give water to the migrants suffering from their arduos desert trek in 120-degree weather.
So it was a shock to those who knew him to learn that the 58-year-old was found shot to death over the weeknd — and the suspect is an illegal immigrant.
Krentz’ death is stirring intense outrage and has led state officials, includuing Sen. John McCain, to issue calls for securing the border.
My Bold Immigrants talk, they call back home they warn each other about the Border Patrol, the Minute Men and talk about Border Angels who leave water for them.
Krentz had a 35,000-acre ranch and left water for immigrants you tell me that did not piss off the Minute Men!
A drug dealer killed him why was Krentz inspecting immigrants backpacks for drugs? Not Likely!
Mexican drug dealers talk to immigrants to see where its safe to cross why shoot a guy leaving you water or maybe even offering you a ride when your in the desert?
The most likely suspect Jon McCain is the Minute Men they have a history of violence Duh!
Sorry readers the list of Minute Men violence that follows is so long not that Jon McCain is doing anything to stop this violence!
On June 11th, three Mexican citizens were shot and injured near Campo on the Mexican side of the border. According to SignOn San Diego, an e-mail between San Diego Minutemen Founder Jeff Schwiilk and an associate indicated that local Minutemen were in the area when shooting broke out.
On June 13, white supremacist leader Hal Turner, described by some web postings as as “an associate of Simcox and Schwilk,” took credit for the attacks in a blog post in which he stated, “Got 3 more! At Least Three Shot Trying to Cross U.S.-Mexico Border. Our People are now actively shooting illegal aliens and we will continue to do so….When planning this activity, it was decided that the shootings would take place on the Mexican side of the border since law enforcement in that nation is so ill-equipped, the chance of getting caught is zero.
Two days later, on June 15th, four migrants were killed with AK-47s in Tecate, just south of the border after refusing to give up belongings to robbers, a Mexican news outlet has reported (http://www.oem.com/mx/elsoldetijuana/notas/n746226.htm. The murders occurred the same weekend as water stations were slashed and the Campo Minuteman reunion was held at Camp Vigilance in Boulevard, an event confirmed by the Orange County Register and the Backcountry Messenger, leading to suspicions by Latino activists of Minutemen involvement. However, two Mexican men have been arrested for the crimes, El Solde reported, while three other assailants named in the report remain at large.
My Bold It seems this is not the first time the police have framed Mexicans for murder.
Minutemen America Defense leader accused in Arizona murder
On June 14, 2009 Shawna Forde, leader of Minutemen America Defense(M.A.D.), was arrested in Pima County Arizona in connection with the Murders_of_Raul_and_Brisenia_Flores. Ms. Forde, Gunny Bush (M.A.D.’s national operations director), and Albert Gaxiola were each charged with first degree murder in connection with a home invasion and double murder. The trio were alleged to have been dressed in law enforcement gear when they gunned down Raul Junior Flores and his 9-year-old daughter, Brisenia Flores.
August 2007 fake murder video
In August 2007 the Southern Poverty Law Center reported the surfacing of two videos which appeared to depict the murder of an illegal immigrant along the Mexico/California border by two Minuteman vigilantes. These videos appeared briefly on Youtube but were removed. In this video, a figure is videotaped in night vision being shot while two narrators exchange obscene comments expressing satisfaction about doing so.
A few days later, Minuteman representatives confirmed to a San Diego TV station that the videos were made by members of the Mountain Minutemen group and that they were fake
My Bold Any definitive proof these filmed murders were fake?
The Nazi’s used Kristallnacht as an excuse to begin herding people. Jon you make these accusations but you have no suspects in custody, you have no evidence, you ignore the likelier suspects the Minute Men.
Why because you are a weak man desperate for power you hugged George Bush after he started a rumor that your step daughter was your bastard.
Jon you are a failure as a father and your own step daughter is now at risk to be pulled over if she ever forgets her papers.
Kristallnacht was triggered by the assassination in Paris of German diplomat Ernst vom Rath by Herschel Grynszpan, a German-born Polish Jew. In a coordinated attack on Jewish people and their property, 91 Jews were murdered and 25,000 to 30,000 were arrested and placed in concentration camps. 267 synagogues were destroyed, and thousands of homes and businesses were ransacked. This was done by the Hitler Youth, the Gestapo and the SS. The Kristallnacht also served as a pretext and a means for the wholesale confiscation of firearms from German Jews.
While the assassination of Rath served as a pretext for the attacks, the Kristallnacht was part of a broader racial policy of Nazi Germany, including antisemitism and persecution of the Jews. Kristallnacht was followed by further economic and political persecutions. It is viewed by many historians as the beginning of the Final Solution, leading towards the genocide of the Holocaust.[
one of the German undercover units was not informed and carried out its attack on a German customs post; several Germans were killed before the incident ended. The operations were carried by agents of the SS and the SD. The German troops, dressed in Polish uniforms, would storm various border buildings, scare the locals with inaccurate shots, carry out acts of vandalism, and retreat, leaving behind dead bodies in Polish uniforms. The bodies were in fact prisoners from concentration camps; they were dressed in Polish uniforms, killed (often by a lethal injection of a poison, then shot for appearance) and left behind.
Authoritarian hate groups love to fake evidence remember Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction? Remember Saddam’s ties to Ossama?
The Right has graduated to Nazi killing people and framing people for murder.
No Suspect in custody, No Evidence needed to take away our Rights! The Racists hope that hysteria will give them cover for taking away our rights.
They want to repeat history bad economy find a minority scapegoat but please don’t blame the businessmen. Scrotmunchers…*^&%!!!
