BREAKING NEWS: Deputy Puroll LIED! Law Enforcement Source Says Evidence Doesn't Support Account Puroll Gave of Border Shooting Incident!

Breaking News: More evidence that Deputy Puroll LIED! A top law enforcement source says evidence does NOT support the account by Puroll.
ITWAMA is covering this story because the ANTI Immigration Reform forces are using this story and the Rancher Krentz murder (which has 0 suspects) to scare the American Public into thinking Drug Cartel Violence is running rampant in border states and therefore there is a need for racial profiling laws like sb1070. The reality is this so-called crime was STAGED to scare people and in 2010, Phoenix has the lowest rate of violent crime in years and much lower than other American cities.
PNT reports:
Law Enforcement Source Says Evidence Doesn't Support Account by Wounded Pinal County Sheriff's Deputy
Mum has been the operative word in recent days about the April 30 desert incident involving Pinal County sheriff's Deputy Louie Puroll until NOW...

Now, a top law enforcement officer familiar with details of the ongoing Arizona Department of Public Safety probe of the incident says, "That whole [crime] scene was just not right," adding that investigators "found zero evidence supporting [Puroll's] recollections of the incident."
People familiar with the case are saying:
. no shell castings from the AK-47s have been found. Open desert. No way to lose these shell castings.
. Purcoll made a call to 911 and did not use his own police radio to contact dispatch
. though helicopters were immediately on the scene, no suspects were found in a 10 by 10 mile search even though Puroll reported they had no vehicle. (see above picture which shows an open area of desert; nothing for miles to hide behind, just tumbleweed)
. Being an ex Marine Viet-Nam-combat-veteran and an ex MP after my tour of duty. The report of this shooting hit me very wrong for a number of reasons. Number one: I know first hand the damage that an AK-47 round does, an AK-47 round spins as it travels and even if it grazes the target it would do major damage (it would have ripped out half his organs on the side that was hit). Number two: As an MP (Military Policeman) I learned that you do not make contact with a suspect/s without first reporting to headquarters. The cop in question was not a rookie, he should have known this. I also have to question his calling 911 vs calling his own unit for back-up. This entire incident is suspect and since there were foreign nationals involved, the FBI should investigate. For the the Sheriff's department to investigate would be like putting the fox in charge of the chicken coup.

The Coyote that was going to shoot a Mexican Lady in Arizona, because of Mercy, Compassion, Commiseration with her suffering - Stories of the Desert

Life and Death on the Arizona Border

Margaret Regan has been covering immigration for over a decade for the Tucson Weekly and other publications. Her book is “The Death of Josseline: Immigration Stories from the Arizona-Mexico Borderlands.” She talked to NAM editor, Sandip Roy.

Life and Death on the Arizona Border

Some excerpts :

Marta Garcia was an impoverished woman from Honduras. She had two children. Her husband had disappeared in his efforts to cross into the U.S. She believes that he is dead. She made the decision she would have to make this dangerous journey. She left the kids with the in-laws, rode up by bus, contracted with a coyote. Very often these people are lied to, told this is a very short walk. This is a person who has a little bit of extra weight, was not used to vigorous hiking. The coyote had said it would be a few hours.

After eight hours they are still hiking very rocky trails that are so easy to trip on. You trip on the rocks because you are looking overhead so you won’t crash into the cactus. She fell and broke her femur. She said the coyote was going to shoot her. His idea was to put her out of her misery since she was sure to die out there. And he got out his gun. She pleaded for her life. He finally said, “your choice.”

There she was alone. She was freezing at night. She lay there all night in excruciating pain thinking about her children. With the morning light a Mexican family crossed up the hill to where she was and found her and said, ‘we are going to help you.’ They gave up their own chance to get into the United States in order to save Marta’s life.

One of them, a genial fellow named Raul, stayed with her. The rest of the family went out to the road, flagged down the Border Patrol and took them back to Marta Gomez. She was airlifted to Tucson. I was with the group rescuing her and this migrant man, Raul. And I asked him “Why did you do it? Why did you give up your chance to save this woman you don’t even know?” And he said, “I had to. I had to save a human life.”

CNN : Cesar Chavez "The Boycott gets into people's hearts and minds, like writing a good poem or book -- if you keep at it, it will come." - Remembrace of Chavez - By Princeton History Professor

Some excerpts :

The boycott was also central in the fight for labor justice and union rights. In 1965, the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee, under the leadership of Cesar Chavez, launched a national boycott against grapes. The five-year boycott, called "la huelga," placed immense pressure on California grape growers to recognize the union. The boycott drew national attention to the plight of unorganized immigrant workers in low-paying and dangerous jobs.

What we are seeing are the first rumblings of a potential movement in favor of immigrant rights.

"Go to the public," Chavez told workers, "and tell them what it is that we need, and get them to help us. ..." The union floated balloons in Toronto, Ontario, supermarkets that said "Boycott Grapes" and organized postcard writing campaigns to A &P grocery offices in major cities.

Chavez once said the boycott "gets into people's hearts and minds, like writing a good poem or book -- if you keep at it, it will come." Chavez was right. On July 29, 1970, 26 grape growers in California signed contracts recognizing the union.

Sometimes boycotts can temporarily stave off action. After the House passed a stringent anti-immigration measure in 2005, immigrants conducted a one-day boycott in schools and businesses to demonstrate their role in the economy. The boycott helped persuade the Senate to reject the House measure and propose a more liberal alternative, although that never passed.

The most effective boycotts find strategic and charismatic leaders to articulate the goals and aspirations of its supporters. They are able to focus national attention on the contributions to society of the people who are the target of certain social practices or legislation. They are also able to demonstrate enough economic muscle so that their opponents, and those who are not particularly invested on either side of the issue, see a clear economic cost to the continuation of the status quo.

Hispanics, the fastest-growing voting bloc in the United States, could soon start to show just how much economic and political muscle they have.
