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.
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.
