A Former Officer Says LAPD Hiring
Now Diversity-Driven At Expense Of Catching Criminals; etc.

From:

Re: Brenda Walker`s Column:

The Thin Blue Line Is Compromised At The Top

I applaud Walker`s article on illegals murdering
police officers. Her insight on political influence and
decision making by scum

like Los Angeles Police Department Chief William Bratton

is accurate.

If William Parker, LAPD`s ex-police chief who purged
the department of corruption in the 1950`s were alive
today, he would go into convulsions.

Bratton is a pure politician of the worst kind.

District Attorney Steve Cooley
isn`t far behind. 
Cooley could have indicted

Roger Cardinal Mahony
for harboring of pedophiles in
the Catholic Diocese of Los Angeles. Instead, he
attended masses Mahoney led.

I worked at the

LAPD
for years. I was there when

Special Order 40
was invoked. During that time,
however, officers were
concerned more for their country than LAPD policy. When

criminal aliens
were discovered, we contacted the

INS
(now

ICE
) who promptly responded and removed the
subjects. The result: a sudden drop in crime rates. Duh!

Today, LAPD hires functional
illiterates
based upon

skin color
and
sexual deviancy
. It lives on a reputation made by
officers from an earlier era with character and
conviction…in other words, true heroes and not

politically correct
cowards.

Jim worked for LAPD on a
special assignment where he and his fellow officers
hunted, captured and brought to justice violent serial
predators. Send him mail c/o

A Texas Reader Worries About Ron Paul

From:

Tim Stefanini

Re: Peter
Brimelow`s Column:

Ron Paul: “I Believe In Nation Sovereignty”

Paul`s answer to
Brimelow`s question asking what he thinks of the H-1B
program is truly troubling.


Paul
:
“I`ve supported it because it`s legal” 

What America has done
from 2001 to 2006 is taken two million of our

best and brightest citizens
in the technology
industry, many with master`s degrees from top
universities, and

thrown them onto the streets
.

Foreign-born, mostly
from

India
, have replaced Americans. They often

fake their credentials
and their degrees. A
six-month certificate program is frequently called a
masters degree. A three-week training stint is mocked up
as four years of experience. The few real investigations
done show shocking levels of fraud (the INS study found
47 percent fake credentials). The body shops who place
the foreigners are scam artists looking to avoid paying
taxes. 

If you are a new
graduate lucky enough to land a job, you have a $50,000
student loan debt. But you`re sitting next to an Indian
engineer who paid $40 for his six-month course. Is this
fair?

What do these H-1B
visas say about the

American dream
(for Americans)?

Borrow tens of
thousands of dollars for a top university education,
work hard and make sure you are the best and the
brightest, only to get discarded by our society that
values

actors
, models,

singers
,

sports stars
, and

television personalities
.  Look at the

wealthiest Americans under-40
list to prove it.

The career of last
resort for educated Americans is to practice law.
Luckily for lawyers, the U.S. has the most lawsuits of
any nation and ten times more lawyers per capita than
European countries.

This is America`s
future: lawsuits and

pop stars
.

Stefanini has worked in the
Silicon Valley software industry for over fifteen years
as a technology manager. He recently traveled to India
and came away with this conclusion: “People who don`t
see first hand the massive IT employment in Indian tech
centers have no idea the scale by which we have lost
jobs
.”

A Florida Reader Says Paul Misses The Consumer-Immigration
Connection

From: Doug White: (e-mail
him)


Peter Brimelow
asked:

"But the question is,
whose interests are you going to go with? The interests
of the worker or the interests of capital?"

Paul responded:


"A free market always
goes with the interests of the consumer…Everybody`s a
consumer"

Paul implies a conflict of interest between worker and
consumer.  This is a false dichotomy. 

People are both workers and consumers.  Reduce wages by
flooding the market with cheap labor, and you reduce
consumption.  It is two sides of the same coin.  As
worker/consumer, I want immigration curtailed—even if it
means higher prices for lettuce.

Two Asian immigrants
replaced White after his seven-year career as a database
administrator in Orange County, Florida. According to
White, whose supervisor was a high school graduate who
knew nothing about IT, management wasn`t looking for
cheaper employees but more docile labor. White sums his
experience up this way: “I`m distressed to be looking
for a job, but happy that I didn`t become a toady for
management.”

A
Hispanic Reader And Animal Lover Challengers Brenda
Walker; Brenda Replies

From:

Dani Sartori

Re: Brenda Walker`s Column:

They Kill Horses Don`t They? (Mexicans, That Is)

Every culture will have good and bad people, period.
Judging a whole ethnic group based on the actions of few
individuals is unfair and takes attention away from the
real problem.

We need to educate humans that treating animals kindly
is just a matter of compassion.

Killing horses as well as dog and rooster fighting are
not exclusive to Mexicans

Witness the

Michael Vick
case. Vick doesn`t represent America.

Or the incident in San Jose, CA during which animal
control apprehended 100 roosters raised for fighting.
Those aren`t American values.

[“Cockfighting Raid Shocks San Jose Neighbors,

Joshua Molina, San Jose Mercury News, August 27,
2007]

I would never evaluate an entire culture based on the
actions of individuals like

Vick
. Why does Walker feel she has the right to do
so?

I am not Mexican but I am Latin American. I would never
buy a

dog
, or a cat at a pet store chain because I am so
profoundly opposed to the puppy mill industry. I have
adopted a puppy mill bitch that today at 14 is my best
friend. I just recently adopted an

Australian Shepherd
with a leg malformation who
would certainly been put down.

I have adopted

several dogs
and cats – lots of them since I tend to
adopt senior animals nobody wants. I also sponsor
undernourished horses.

Am I the person Walker is writing about?

Animal cruelty occurs on both sides of the border. Hate
speech like Walker`s only promotes hate. In order to
stop animal cruelty we need love. You can`t love animals
without loving humans.

Would Walker see me, a foreign-born Latina, as someone
who doesn`t respect American values? I would appreciate
an answer.


Brenda Walker

replies:

There is no question that Mexican culture does not
condemn animal cruelty to the extent that American
society does. As I noted in my column, Mexico has no
laws against cruelty to animals.

Horse tripping, a rodeo event

enjoyed by many Mexicans
, is illegal in several
states in America.

Mexico`s national sport,

bullfighting
, is the ritualized killing of an animal
for entertainment. In America, that does not compute.

A
Pennsylvania Reader Reports Californication In Her Rural
Neighborhood

From: A.M.S.

For 21 years, I have lived in a small rural neighborhood
near the Pennsylvania/Delaware border. I have watched

my neighborhood
change dramatically in the last few
years as it has been overrun with

Mexican aliens
renting houses on my street.

At present there are 50 percent renters, and they have
multiple families living in one dwelling. Their children
are overburdening our local school and people are
enrolling their children in charter schools to avoid it.
My son couldn`t get into summer school when he was
failing a grade, yet all my Mexican neighbors got picked
up each summer morning for classes. Isn`t this reverse
discrimination?

Our borough counsel will not put a moratorium on
renting, and will not hold landlords responsible for
their tenants. Recently we have experienced crime on our
streets that did not exist before—gang
graffiti
, car break-ins, slashed tires and drivers
leaving crash scenes because they have no identification
or insurance.

Our

hospitals must admit
and care for them, our schools
are at a loss, and law enforcement is weak.

Once, our community was a beautiful scenic countryside
until greedy council members allowed mushroom "farmers",
(and I say that with a grain of bitter salt) to cover
the countryside with stinky mushroom houses.  Compost
facilities border our town.

Several years ago, local state representative Art
Hershey (RINO)

helped draft
a document that exempts the “farmers” from the
Clean Air Act, calling them an "agri-business”
[E-mail Hershey

here
]

Consequently the mushroom industry attracted illegal
Mexican farm workers to shovel the muck. They in turn
encouraged their illegal cousins, and then President
Ronald Reagan made the unforgivable mistake of granting
them amnesty.

Once they became legal, more relatives followed.

My uninvited neighbors are cheeky, do not abide by the
law, and are a general nuisance.

We look like a border town. The Mexicans hang sheets in
their window, if the glass is not broken, drink in
public, trash their houses and yards while those of us
who own our homes have spent time and money improving
our properties. Last year, the man across the street
hung the

Mexican flag
in his front window during the week of
9/11.

I am sick of it. I don`t plan to cave into a migration
of illegal cockroaches in my neighborhood. We are
upstanding, tax-paying citizens who have had enough.

AMS is married to a legal immigrant from New Zealand who
underwent a six-month FBI check before he was allowed to
come to the U.S. The couple lived in California for the
first years of their marriage. She hopes that the rest
of Pennsylvania does not become like


California
…and her formerly quaint town.
