Lured by a paid informant he had known for years who promised to repay an old debt, Borjas agreed to bring a satchel filled with $23,000 in cash to a parking lot and, when he got there, he walked straight into a trap, Borjas said.

if my own father said to me, "son, i need you to take this duffel bag full of cash to this deserted parking lot and hand it over to these guys you've never met," i would run away as fast as i could.  and i like my dad.  nobody in their right mind would walk into that situation and expect to walk out alive or not arrested.  i don't care how long they've been your friend, you are walking into a goddamn trap.

The One True TheDavid: How exactly is this benefiting the residents of Sunrise, Florida?


Their police services are funded by individuals flying in from out of state with large bags of cash.

Silly_Sot: And some people still wonder why they get called "pigs"...
Because they arrest people that break the law? Isn't that what they're supposed to do?


Somewhere police stopped keeping bad people away from good people, and turned on 'civilians'. See the 81st, Adrian Schoolcraft. Instead of focusing on actual crimes, they started on non-quotas, juking compustat and using variations of the broken windows theory to get to zero tolerance. Management started focusing on revenue, looking for drunk college student and squeaking every last cent from DWI's. Rapes get reclassified as other crimes, while they look for bottom of the barrel criminals using questionable tools like baitcar to generate stats.

Your reponse is why people think you are too supportive of police, to say it politely.

If you think a police officer is anything other than a gang member with diplomatic immunity, you haven't been paying attention.

That article never mentioned crack.


Good point, but a large purchase of cocaine and crack are pretty much the same.

Spend 10 or 20 K on coke, boil it with baking soda, no dangerous or hard to find chemical like the production of meth. Just be careful not to spend the rest of your lifetime in prison when an ex-friend or neighbor turns on you because of jealously or profit.

But if someone can get away with this, they are set for a while.

devildog123: FTA:  Gus Borjas, a nurse by profession and a father of four from Homestead, Fla., got caught up in one of the Sunrise Police's cocaine stings. Lured by a paid informant he had known for years who promised to repay an old debt, Borjas agreed to bring a satchel filled with $23,000 in cash to a parking lot and, when he got there, he walked straight into a trap, Borjas said.

Because I know tons of nurses with 4 kids that have $23,000 in cash.  And why the fark would you need to bring that much cash to have someone else pay you money.  I can't think of any situation where a briefcase full of cash in a parking lot is for something not shady.  The cops may do lots wrong, but I have a feeling they busted the right person in this case.


Yes, they got the right person, I think.

At any rate, I think the bigger issue for the local community is that cops are literally creating a drug market, and luring criminals INTO their community. I'd be upset if it was my local police doing this.

Of course, the idiot mayor has no issue with it - it is filling their coffers with cash, eliminating the city budget as a problem. Lowering property values, increasing petty crime, and probably increasing burglary rates in town, along with the potential of a deal turning into a firefight can be ignored when you are suffering from severe short-sightedness.

Kalashinator: I only skimmed, but nowhere did in the article did I see that police actually handed somebody an eightball and receive payment for said product. Just stings and asset seizures, which--call me crazy--might also take place in jurisdictions across the entire country.


The gist I got is once this Borja fella got to the meeting place, a second paid informant aggressively coaxed him into the meeting area, took his backpack, removed the money, and placed the drugs into the bag.  She then handed the bag back to him and he was popped for possession.

Granted, who carries 23,000 in cash with them in order to get more money owed to him?  That does indeed sound a bit fishy especially when the suspect is a nurse with 4 kids.
