Is Cochise County Corrupt?
Spencer calls on Sheriff Dever to resign

Malfeasance in Office
Last Friday, an armed man criminally assaulted me in my local hardware store. While I was not seriously injured, the incident could have easily led to my death had I reacted differently to the perpetrator.
I reported the assault to the Cochise County Sheriffs office, but they did nothing. Even after I gave them a video of the assault, they refused to take action against the perpetrator, or take my statement.
I have prepared a YouTube video report of the assault and lack of action by the Cochise County Sheriffs office. It can be seen here.
I am making these facts public only as a last resort. Who wants to get into a public dispute with the local sheriff? Unfortunately, Sheriff Dever has left me no option.
Over the years I have reported verbal and other assaults on my by the person involved in last Friday's assault, but Sheriff Dever's department has done nothing. Those who have visited the American Border Patrol ranch are familiar with the sign on the road leading in that attacks ABP and me personally. The same man erected it. Many who attended a rally at the ranch a couple of years ago recall threats this man made toward them. This guy is a danger to society, but Larry Dever doesn't care.
In January of 2010 I called the Sheriffs Office to report a man approaching my home by foot that I considered a threat. What happened? In a process, which I believe was engineered by the Cochise County Sheriffs Department, I was convicted of assault on this man. The conviction was possible only with the close cooperation of the county prosecutor, who I accuse of malfeasance as well.
In April, Larry Dever told the Phoenix New Times that I am a bigot. I demanded that Dever provide evidence of this charge, but he did not respond. The Sheriff of Cochise County was painting a target on my back for any open-borders nut, but he wouldn't say why he did.
Sheriff Dever has demonstrated a total disregard for the proper enforcement of the law or the truth - and should resign. One shouldn't use the office of sheriff to carry out a personal vendetta.

Latest NAFBPO update from south of the border
Monterey, NL, Mex. -- Violence has closed down many bars, cafes, restaurants and nightclubs which served 10,000 customers every weekend.

The American owners simply closed down and moved back into the U.S. when they were threatened. Many of the owners say the criminals operate with impunity through consent of the local police...

Obama, Napolitano playing a Mexican border shell game, say cops
Following what President Barack Obama's critics call his "amnesty announcement," instead of hiring more Border Patrol agents to cover the U.S-Mexico border, several stations are being shut down, which Border Patrol agents, through their union, claim will make it easier for illegal aliens to enter and remain in the country. In addition, it is a reckless move that makes the U.S. more vulnerable to terrorists entering the U.S... [Related]

Is Mitt serious about Condi?
The first criterion in choosing a vice president, it is said, is that he or she must be qualified to be president. -- Yet there is another yardstick by which candidates measure running mates.

Winning elections requires throwing the Constitution under the bus

Leaders evaluating use of troops along border
Washington leaders are evaluating their decision to send troops to the U.S.-Mexico border. If you go by the numbers, it looks like having the National Guard on the border has made little impact. -- About six percent of all arrests came from their help; Guardsmen and women caught less than three percent of drugs. Some say those numbers are misleading, because the guardsmen's job is limited...
Drug smugglers use private roads to bypass border guards
The roads were built on private lands and ranches to transport heavy drilling and related equipment used to develop the massive Eagle Ford Shale formation, which stretches from Mexico to east Texas. -- Because they are on private land, the roads penetrate deep into Texas well past the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoints set up on public highways. -- The newspaper quotes Dimmitt County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Albert DeLeon...
