Leave it to California to defund law enforcement while doubling down on support for cartels.
In some situations, the state may well achieve both at the same time.
As reported by The Blaze, a deputy in the self-proclaimed sanctuary state of California has been busted with (what else?) aiding and abetting Mexican cartels.
“A California sheriff’s deputy was charged with two felonies on Monday after it was discovered that he was reportedly carrying more than 100 pounds of fentanyl in his vehicle. Prosecutors allege that the deputy may have ties to a Mexican drug cartel …
Jorge Oceguera-Rocha, 25, was charged with one felony count of possessing fentanyl for sale and transporting narcotics … He was also charged with being armed with a firearm during a drug offense, which could mean that he faces more time in prison if he is convicted,” the outlet noted.
Well, how about that.
Seems that this police officer received a relatively low number of charges relative to the high amounts of fentanyl he had with him.
Then again, what else is to be expected from a state that prides itself on no bail, as well as effectively no enforcement of serious criminal offenses?
Heck, California can’t even bother to secure its border, which appears wide open on a daily basis for receiving Soros-funded illegal migrants.
Who benefit handsomely from “deputies” such as Oceguera-Rocha, who obviously has a rather lucrative side gig going on with China-originated fentanyl.
Effectively, this arrest reveals that the “Golden State” chases out just about every decent cop through its horrifically aggressive “Defund Police” policies.
Then, the state takes it upon itself to employ police officers who have dubious backgrounds, to put it mildly.
But don’t worry! At least the cop apparently wasn’t smuggling drugs into local jails, which the press release from Riverside was sure to emphasize.
“After a K9 alerted to the presence of narcotics within the vehicle, a search was conducted. Located in the vehicle was more than 100 pounds of packaged fentanyl pills (M30’s). Also located in the vehicle was a loaded handgun. Oceguera-Rocha was arrested and subsequently booked into the Cois Byrd Detention Center. During the investigation, it was determined that Oceguera-Rocha was not smuggling narcotics into the Riverside County jail system as previously stated in un-verified news articles,” the police department reported.
Well, that’s just swell!
Good to know that the Mexican cartel-affiliated police officer isn’t trafficking illicit substances in the local county jail; he just carries 100+ pounds of it instead.
Whether or not he’ll actually face any serious repercussions for his charges remains to be seen, especially since many of his “employees” are likely the illegals driven on a huge scale to the state in the first place.
One can only hope that 2024 will usher in a presidential candidate who is actually serious about border security.
