Another argument against illegal immigration

A gang of robbers used fake police lights, sirens and badges — and real handcuffs and guns — to pull over and rob more than 100 drug dealers of cash and cocaine in New York and elsewhere up and down the East Coast, federal prosecutors charged in an indictment unsealed on Tuesday.

8 Men Are Accused of Abducting, Torturing and Robbing Dozens of Drug Dealers

After identifying themselves as police officers and handcuffing the drug dealers, the thieves interrogated and frequently tortured their captives, beating them, dunking their heads under water and threatening sexual mutilation, documents filed with the indictment in Federal District Court in Brooklyn said. The men stole about $4 million and 750 kilograms of cocaine, prosecutors said. The police seized more than 20 guns, prosecutors said.

Five of the eight men who were arraigned on Tuesday were already in jail or prison on unrelated charges.

If convicted on all counts, they face minimum sentences of 40 years, prosecutors said.

Most of the defendants also face deportation if convicted. At least one is an illegal immigrant, prosecutors said, and some others are not United States citizens.

Dirtbag on dirtbag crime...and we are the ones who pay police to protect them all. Great city we have here.

Maybe "Johnny Law" has been allowing these illegals to operate as their "death squads"
for covert "wet work" to get drug dealers off their cities' streets.

A crazy idea? You never know!

"Deport" 'em? Hell....execute 'em!
Then you're sure these criminals won't come back to commit their crimes all over again!

Robbing drug dealers - another job Americans are no longer willing to do!

Come now Crappy! Why highlight all the bad things about our "vibrant diversity"? We all know these poor individuals were forced into robbing drug dealers due to systemic and endemic racism perpetuated by people such as you and me (I’m making a “big assumption” that you are part of the heritage of “Dead European Males”). If it weren't for people such as us, these folks would be running hedge funds and donating the profits to cyclone victims in Myanmar, conducting physics experiments with particle accelerators, creating SUVs that get 250 miles from a liter of water, solving global warming, creating a vaccine for HIV, etc. So stop posting these negative articles, and embrace the "vibrant diversity"!

Drug dealers are vermin anyway.

So if one bigger rat bites the head off another rat "society" benefits!

Then the 'authorities" can shoot
the remaining rat.

Now isn't that "justice" for you?

The cops aren't too busy robbing drug dealers these days.

Maybe in Flushing they take a little "off the top" (at least from the madams of Asian whore houses).

message to our friend: people are no longer watching the Dukes of Hazzard, Welcome Back Kotter, or doing the Disco.

Welcome to the 21st Century. Once you can get your bearings, maybe someone can help you review the other decades you missed.

Sock it to me! Far out man! Groovy!

U.S. citizens don't deal drugs or commit robbery? Are you judging an entire group of people based on this particular news story? Should all Italian-Americans be investigated because of the actions of the ones in the mafia?

Seriously, WTF?

I grew up in Queens, and if people spoke this much shit about something they deliberately choose to misunderstand, I'd beat the crap out of them and steal their cocaine.

When one is talking about the price of mangoes in Sumatra one should not pretend they're talking about the temperature of spit in Wichita.

My family weren't 'illegal' back in the 60's and 70's when they first came here, but it doesn't take a lot of compassion to understand that when lumping good people with bad doesn't accomplish much of anything except the appearance of activity. At best.
