EDITOR: What are Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement doing in a situation like this (“ ‘Barrage of gunfire,’ ” Friday)? They are supposed to be guarding our borders and looking for threats to our nation, not making collars for some murder case.
With a platoon of geared-up cops and a tank, three of these keystone cops get shot?
The neighborhood was not cleared. An AK-47 round can go through a couple of houses. They were extremely lucky that nobody was killed in the barrage of bullets. This is inexcusable and put the neighborhood in real danger. Did they expect murder suspects to just do nothing as they bash the door in?
I think this demonstrates the amateur hour quality of our $55 billion-a-year Homeland Security layer of additional police run by a political appointee. They should be out running their entrapment deals, nailing imbeciles or watching our borders. I think they are becoming our own Gestapo. I’d send them home and use the $55 billion to help our existing law enforcement do the job. We know they are professionals.
