The mainstream media is doing as good a job on this story as the DEA is controlling the marijuana market.

Holy. Fark.

Sue the estate of the driver for theft and damage.

This is truly a f*cked up situation. Who is buying that mexican schwag weed anyhow?
I blame the 'war on drugs' for crap like this. Senseless.

ZAZ: Sue the estate of the driver for theft and damage.


Indeed. The guy was likely running drugs and was caught and offered the opportunity to participate in a sting for lesser charges or other nonsense.

Still, this story has it all. Cops shooting cops, informant getting killed. What a mess.

I never thought about it from that angle but it makes sense. It seems that the DEA would be required to inform or get permission from the business owner before using his vehicle.

The truck's owner is lucky they didn't just take the damn thing and tell him tough luck.

Fark the DEA.
 
2012-07-31 11:21:38 AM  
His company, which hauls sand as part of hydraulic fracturing operations for oil and gas companies, was pushed to the brink of failure after the attack because the truck was knocked out of commission, he said.

Oh well, looks like a little less methane in the drinking water this week.

In the confusion of the attack in northwest Harris County, compounded by officers in the operation not all knowing each other, a Houston policeman shot and wounded a Harris County sheriff's deputy.

Maybe it's not a good idea to set up a sting operation without all the undercover folks knowing each other incredibly well.
 
2012-07-31 11:28:06 AM  
Selling guns to the Mexican cartel AND hauling weed into 'merikuh? Maybe the DEA should review their mission statement?
 
2012-07-31 11:29:16 AM  
This definitely won't cause people to lose more trust in law enforcement. No siree.

FTFA: "How am I - a small businessman, father of three, American Joe from Texas - supposed to make a claim against a federal agency that has conveniently shrouded itself behind a red, white and blue cloak of confidentiality and secrecy?"

Something about that quote makes me want to tell this guy to go fark himself.

At least 17 hours before that early morning phone call, Chapa was shot dead in front of more than a dozen law enforcement officers - all of them taken by surprise by hijackers trying to steal the red Kenworth T600 truck and its load of pot.

I just can't wait to see how Fox News is going to blame this on Obama.

"Our sources say the president shot this truck driver eight times in an attempt to steal marijuana for the DEA. The president has not responded to the charges, but we have it on good authority he's responsible."

Let this be a lesson to all rig owners. Monitor the tracking and fire anyone heading to the border without your orders.

Get the word out and you'll fark up DEA operations all over.

"How am I - a small businessman, father of three, American Joe from Texas - supposed to make a claim against a federal agency that has conveniently shrouded itself behind a red, white and blue cloak of confidentiality and secrecy?"

I sympathize, but I bet if it had happened to someone else he'd have used almost all of the words from this statement in explaining how he runs background checks on all his employees and it's not the red, white and blue governments fault that the person wasn't boot-strappy enough to run their business right, and how if you've done nothing wrong you have nothing to be afraid of.

But they rescued us all from enjoying ourselves, so it wasn't a total bust.

This. I'm not exactly desperate to get my hands on some Mexican dirt-weed. Does the DEA need a bust so badly that they need to stop a product that nobody in this country wants anyway? It's like intercepting a shipment of Busch or Old Milwaukee beer.

Yeah, they could have confiscated it because it was used to haul drugs. Sure the DEA set up the drug runs, but they have done crazier shiat.

"I wanted to keep them young as long as I could," he said. "I've gone to great lengths to keep my son believing in Santa Claus"

These are the people I wanted to hang as a teenager. When I started realizing everyone was lying to me, I shut them all out. My parents haven't been a part of my life since I was 10 or 11; I raised myself, took my meals in my room, got on the Internet and found my own information... I live by my own truths and I don't deal with those people anymore.

I read fantasy novels. They're marked "FICTION". Tradition and festivals can be peddled as amusing entertainment. People are social and want to be a part of it all, children will play along with a known fabrication.

Why? It's not as though what he said isn't true.
 
2012-07-31 11:45:36 AM  
Pointless article is pointless. He send a letter to the DEA saying "can i plz haz 1.5 million dollars? thx" and is surprised they havent mailed him a check yet.

File a lawsuit or stfu and go away.

I doubt he had realizable assets sufficient to cover the loss. I would guess the DEA might have deeper pockets.

The article says the government was paying the driver. I wouldn't risk my life smuggling drugs without enough pay to make suing my estate worthwhile.

Right?!

I suppose the attorney can use this as a way of saying to the judge, "Well, we tried to just ask but DEA said no so we had no alternatives but suing."

Wait'll the IRS sends a bill for the taxes for the weed.

It's the sort of thing a defense lawyer would coach you to say in front of a jury. It doesn't sound at all spontaneous.

This is a photo of Lawrence Chapa, who was working as a government informant when he was driving a truck that was fatally attacked in Houston. Chapa, 53, was from Houston. This shot is from 2/4/2010 when he was arrested by HPD for possession of a controlled substance.

this is why cops suck. THEY get paid to risk their lives. Getting someone to be your informant to do YOUR work just shows what pu**ies the cops really are. You don't know how to do your job? Quit and stop killing innocent people.

I was offered to "work undercover"after being arrested. I told them that I could give a Shiat about Poss of CDS charges balanced against working for them and risking my life. Some of them looked quite shocked when I said no, but that quickly turned to offended when I berated them for the next 10-15 minutes about them being too scared to do their jobs.
