Mexican drug cartel threatens to harm U.S. police officers who bust drug shipments while off-duty
Mexican cartels added a new twist to the drug war this week by threatening to kill U.S. cops who seize their goods.
Nogales, Ariz., Police Chief Jeffrey Kirkham said his officers received threats a couple weeks ago after off-duty police busted a pot smuggling ring.
"America is based on freedom. We're not going to be intimidated by the threats, but we are taking them seriously," Kirkham told CNN.
"I've told my officers if they venture into that area off-duty to be armed," he said.
Just which cartel made the threat remains unclear. Violent warnings toward American police are not new, but the Nogales incident marked the first time U.S. officials confirmed a threat.
Kirkham said the turf war between the Sinaloa and Juarez cartels have escalated tensions in the border region.
The police chief told the local newspaper his officers were threatened with sniper fire if they continued to seize drugs when off-duty.
The Santa Cruz County sheriff said there had not been threats against his department.
"They seem to respect an officer who's doing his job," Sheriff Antonio Estrada said of the drug gangs, "but when you do it as a civilian, they really take offense."
Mexican law enforcement endured a deadly week last week as 12 officers were killed in a shootout after an ambush. Federal police also killed 15 gunmen during a shootout at a safe house.
Since the Mexican government declared war on drug gangs in 2006, more than 23,000 people have been killed.

If this filth starts attacking our police officers like they do down in Mexico, the war is definitely on.

Do they really want this? I wonder. You would think they would settle for what they got in the US already, which is plenty. All the wealth and power they have in Mexico is paid for by its much more stealthy presence in the US enable largely by pro-illegal immigration sentiments.

If they start conducting open warfare against our police officers, they could lose everything. I think there are more sober minds among the cartels who have already considered open warfare against US law enforcement and realize there is nothing to win and everything to lose.

Maybe there are less intelligent, more aggressive gangsters on the rise. Guys who think they can pull the same stuff here in the US that they do down in Mexico. Certainly there are enough Mexican "communities" entrenched in the US to make it easy to convince themselves.

Why wouldn't the cartels think that the tactics that work so well in mexico wouldn't work equally as well here? Have they ever gotten any kind of message that such behavior was unacceptable and would be met with force including OVERWHELMING FORCE?

No.

They got 3500 acres of our national forest. They got draconian prosecution of US agents enforcing US laws.

What the cartels got was an engraved invitation on White House stationery to do whatever they want.

You're so correct on that one!!! And if it comes to civil war or a war with Mexico, MANY of the Mexicans here will fight for Mexico, they openly admit is and say it with pride, especially the anchor babies.
