Do hitmen make more than $30/hour?

Oregon Supreme Court allows trial of accused hit men
Two men accused of hiring on as hit men for a jealous husband and drug dealer will have to stand trial after the Oregon Supreme Court overturned a lower court ruling.

The Supreme Court ruled unanimously Thursday that police were justified in making the arrests based partly on a vague description of the suspects.

The man accused of hiring them, Joel Sanchez-Jacobo, was convicted last year of aggravated murder for soliciting the killing of Rodolfo Romero-Lopez and of murder in the slaying of Alejandro Sanchez-Hernandez.

Prosecutors said Sanchez-Jacobo, 31, a Mexican citizen, considered the slain men rival drug dealers who were interested in his wife.

Nothing to see here folks. Pay no attention to the horrible violence in Mexico that seems to be spreading north. Please go back to watching American Idol and ignoring the looming danger.

NOTE: Please ignore all 1,652 news articles from today regarding the Mexican violence.

COBURG — Oregon State Police troopers on Tuesday arrested two California residents after finding drugs, guns, a set of body armor and nearly $10,000 in their car.

Juan Francisco Jimenez Jr. and Alenia Rosario Nunez were lodged in the Lane County Jail on several felony charges.

Police said a trooper patrolling Interstate 5 about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday stopped a Chevrolet Tahoe just north of Coburg for speeding.

The trooper checked to see if the occupants — Jimenez and Nunez — were wanted, and learned that Jimenez was being sought by federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

Police said the trooper searched the vehicle and found about 14 grams of cocaine, 8 grams of methamphetamine, two loaded handguns — one of which had been reported as stolen, a set of body armor and about $9,500 in cash.

Jimenez and Nunez face charges of drug possession and money laundering. Jimenez, 34, is also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and a felon in possession of body armor. Nunez, 26, faces an additional charge of carrying a concealed weapon.

Both people live in the Los Angeles area, police said.

How about instead of treating the symptom, we treat the cause, which in this case is Americans' insatiable need for drugs. Legalize "soft" drugs. Develop rigorous recovery programs for addicts. Demand plummets. Folks in Mexico will have to find something else to peddle.

Americans are addicted to their drugs, and American politicians are addicted to their war on drugs. Neither serves a useful purpose.

Too bad there are so many "upstanding" white American citizens (patriots?) who keep these thugs in business. Bunch of worthless fucking junkies thinking they're any better than a Mexican? Hardly.
