Open Border Blood

Fox News is reporting about that little boy was kidnapped in Las Vegas:

LAS VEGAS — A relative of a boy allegedly kidnapped by men posing as police officers may have owned a Mexican drug cartel, FOX News has learned.

Police said the family of 6-year-old Cole Puffinburger was involved in the illegal drug trade.

The Mexican citizens have had to endure these kinds of kidnappings for while.

Back in August I wrote this post:

I have been hearing about these gangs in Mexico that are kidnapping wealthy people for ransom. More than 430 abductions were reported in 2007, up 35% on the previous year. The report I heard on TV suggested that the police may be in on it.

We may think this doesn't affect us, but Mexico is right next door and with our open borders, it's only a matter of time.

So when I saw this article I was sickened. Mexican hitmen kill 8 at prayer in rehab centre. They seem to think that former drug dealers were being hidden there. But the war is over turf for drug running. Where?

Here, of course:

Some 2,000 people have died this year in a drug war, mostly between rival gangs, for control of routes into the United States.........Mexico's most-wanted man, Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman, is fighting local drug baron Vicente Carrillo Fuentes, boss of the Juarez cartel, for control of Ciudad Juarez and its lucrative smuggling corridor into the United States.

Things seem to becoming more and more violent in Mexico over turf and getting the drugs to the United States. How long will it be until that bloody violence increases to that degree here? Not long I imagine.

What is it going to take for us to get serious about this? Will it take these drug thugs killing innocents in mass across the border on our side?

Americans need to wake up and realize that their casual drug use is rooted in violence, murder, and blood. Good God, isn't this something we all can agree on?

Well, the kidnappings here have begun. Are we going to wake up?
