Recovery, rehab, treatment, & addiction are important parts of this story.

What part of the story is missing?

Has anyone ever seen the press question the US Dept. of Homeland Security/CBP on their role in keeping heroin away from the Puget Sound area?

Massing US Border Patrol agents at the southern edge of the Strait of Juan de Fuca fails to keep heroin out of Port Angeles.

Love to see newspeople schedule interviews and go ask some questions.

In the news- Heroin overdose update:

March, 2017-

Port Angeles police report 18th naloxone save

“Last year, U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer called on the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to expand grants and programs that make naloxone more available in rural areas such as the North Olympic Peninsula.”

Feb, 2016-

U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer calls for greater rural access to opioid overdose antidote

“…Clallam County’s opioid overdose death rate is nearly twice the state average…”

“While opioid use has no boundaries, limited public transportation, a lack of treatment facilities and long distances between health care providers can make it difficult for those who live in rural communities to access necessary drug treatment,” Kilmer wrote in his letter.”

Interesting that limited public transportation does not seem to slow down the folks who move heroin past a $41.2 billion US Dept. of Homeland Security and into local communities.

Congressman Kilmer,

Could a larger US Border Patrol force keep heroin out of Port Angeles?

More manpower, gear, enhanced facilities, a bigger budget?

 

No limited public transportation here:

What role do 1,200-horsepower Border Patrol Interceptor boats play in keeping heroin away from Port Angeles?

2011-

“… their main interaction with the boating public: Boarding boats and checking for ID, getting a “vibe,” as Jeff P. called it, for what’s up.”

2013-

Heroin epidemic gripping Port Angeles

2015-

Has the Port Angeles Border Patrol been able to intercept any inbound heroin?

Newspeople remain silent.

 

Why did the Blaine Sector Weekly US Border Patrol blotter go extinct?

When is the last time the Port Angeles Border Patrol made an arrest of any kind?

Any arrests connected to the US/Canada border?

Any arrests connected to a Homeland Security mission?

Are fraudulent overtime claims still the norm at Port Angeles?

Border Patrol whistleblower pays price for refusing overtime pay

Newspeople remain silent.

 

If you run a government operation- these are the reporters you want to see on interview day:

 

Two total cross-border arrests.

No cross-border USBP arrest has happened here in more than 6 years:

No arrests linked to the US/Canada border since May 31st, 2010.

In the news: Federal authorities to announce racketeering charges against 7 Baltimore Police officers

“Federal authorities are set to announce racketeering charges against seven Baltimore Police officers, with accusations including robberies, filing false affidavits, and making fraudulent overtime claims.”

 

US Border Patrol, Port Angeles, WA-

July 28th, 2011:

Border Patrol whistleblower pays price for refusing overtime pay

Public agency in question makes an inside deal- like negotiating a record contract or signing a business executive-

Seattle Times:

“terms are confidential.”

Deal results in further suppression of information.

Oversight? Checks and balances?

Reporters asking questions? Not a chance.

Zero reporting on the following questions:

Are fraudulent overtime claims the norm at Port Angeles?

Does the practice still continue?

How long did it go on?

Our Washington State Patrol opened a criminal investigation in a similar case:

Ex-trooper charged with official misconduct for overtime pay

We can see that other LE agencies take the issue seriously:

Detroit:

Investigation into Overtime Fraud at Detroit Police Department Expanding

Fort Worth:

Des Plaines:

13 Des Plaines officers suspended in fraudulent OT investigation

Where is the US Border Patrol blotter?

Newspeople,

Why did the Blaine Sector Weekly US Border Patrol blotter go extinct?

Has the Port Angeles Border Patrol been able to intercept any inbound heroin?

When is the last time the Port Angeles Border Patrol made an arrest of any kind?

Any arrests connected to the US/Canada border?

Any arrests connected to a Homeland Security mission?

 

Newspeople,

Please do a story describing the working relationship you have with the Washington State Patrol, local sheriffs departments and city police departments. Any denied FOIA requests generated by these agencies? Please compare to the Border Patrol at Port Angeles.

 

Newspeople,

Why are we told that Port Angeles Border Patrol arrest statistics must be kept secret? This is not standard protocol for American LE agencies.

Arrest statistics are secret:

US Border Patrol, Port Angeles, WA-

Aug 2010-

A US Border Patrol spokesperson tells the press:

“Border Patrol spokeswoman Jenny Burke said Monday that the agency will not release any information on the number of arrests made by agents who work out of the Port Angeles station, the names of those arrested, what they were arrested for and the disposition of their cases”

“The number of arrests for Port Angeles’ or any other station is “law enforcement-sensitive,” Burke said.”

“The names of those arrested and other facts about them are not available for release under the 1974 Privacy Act, she said.”

Aug 2011-

“In March, Supervisory Border Patrol Agent Richard Sinks declined to release statistics on apprehensions or detainments made by the Port Angeles station.”

“Disclosure of the arrest statistics from the Port Angeles station would provide those interested in crossing our borders illegally with information that could aid their strategic targeting of potentially vulnerable areas along the border,” he said in an e-mail. “To maintain operational security these numbers will not be provided.”

No secret arrests here:

US Border Patrol, Port Angeles, WA-

A new, $11.9 million, 50 agent facility, secret arrest statistics, denied FOIA requests, heroin in the community & a Border Patrol whistleblower investigation Re: fraudulent overtime that resulted in further suppression of information- keep the focus on asking questions in these areas.

No cross-border USBP arrest has happened here in more than 6 years.

Accurate reporting allows people to learn how to prevent future incidents.

Anytime there is a plane crash- a thorough investigation takes place. Lessons learned are used to prevent future accidents. Was the aircraft fueled with opioids before it crashed? Was it running on heroin?

DSCN5999 The post-911 surveillance state (fusion centers, war on terror crime fighting tactics, license plate scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, and social media sites, no fly/terror watch lists, Real ID, tracking of cell phones, use of drones, etc.) appears to have played no role in preventing the crimes described below.

If the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it- surely, these powerful crime fighting tools will be used to shut down gang and cartel activity, heroin trafficking, bank robberies, airport & mall shootings, child abduction, etc.

Elsewhere on the crime scene, authorities need your help to track down violent criminals:

Questioning failed programs and wondering why newspeople remain silent.

More reporting please.

15 years past 911:

The US is in a life-and-death struggle with some folks in Yemen, while heroin trafficking cartels move product into local communities.

In the news:

Heroin overdose deaths spike nationwide

The Cartels Next Door: Mexican drug lords corner meth market

“Now, law enforcement estimates that about 90 percent of the meth consumed in the United States comes across the border.”

Washington State:

The US spends about $41.2 billion each year on the US Dept. of Homeland Security.

If the State Patrol was awarded many additional millions of dollars each year to go after drunk drivers- & the problem got worse- would newspeople ask questions?

Would any investigation take place?

Recovery, rehab, treatment, & addiction are important parts of this story.

What part of the story is missing?

Has anyone ever seen the press question the US Dept. of Homeland Security/CBP on their role in keeping heroin away from the Puget Sound area?

Americans are constantly praising & thanking The Troops for keeping us safe.

Still trying to figure out how sending US troops to Iraq & Afghanistan was meant to keep bad people from coming here to do bad things.

Terrorists don’t seem to try very hard.

What prevents the badass terrorists we are supposed to stay scared of from blowing themselves up in a crowded airport just short of the screening checkpoint?

Ditto for hundreds of events nationwide each year at rock concerts, baseball games, basketball games, pro sports events, college events, etc.

Heroin traffickers lead the way.

We know that the people who move heroin into the US do so free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, paperwork reviews, etc.

Love to see newspeople schedule an interview with the US Dept. of Homeland Security & ask:

Are passports/enhanced/Real IDs effective in keeping heroin out of local communities?

Standard driver’s licenses have not been accepted at the border since 2009.

Wonder what was happening at border crossing inspections during the almost 3 years these folks were under investigation. Do the good guys who made the local bust notify the good guys at the border about the weak links in their process?

Imagine that LE authorities observe a shoplifter or bank robber in action. Instead of going in to make an arrest they back off and conduct an investigation that goes on for almost 3 years. What if they applied the same tactic Re: crimes involving arson, terrorism, child abuse, DUI, etc.

If you run a government operation- these are the reporters you want to see on interview day:

During the last Republican administration:

In 2008, the US Border Patrol came to Jefferson County, WA and set up suspicionless checkpoints and bus boardings- away from border crossings and ports of entry.

At a local Border Patrol forum a lady asked:

“What is the penalty for not identifying oneself to federal agents at an internal, suspicionless checkpoint?”

US Border Patrol said they would call in the Sheriff when a person refused to identify themselves.

Sheriff says they will not respond to a non-emergency situation involving a person peaceably refusing to interact with federal agents.

Island county to purchase new patrol boat to help with Puget Sound security:

Federal grant money goes to “…gain a better grasp on cross border activity and to prevent illegal crossings.”

“Funding for the boat was issued through the Homeland Security Grant Program under Operation Stonegarden.”

If public meetings were held on Whidbey Island & people were asked to state their top law enforcement priorities- would a Homeland Security-funded patrol boat show up anywhere on the list?

If the Sheriff was interviewed & asked for his wish list- is there any possibility that it would include a Homeland Security-funded patrol boat?

Took a quick look on the web to see if there is a post 911 history of maritime “cross-border activity” on Whidbey & could not find anything. If anyone has info, please post in comments.

Recommendation-

Let the Sheriff & the people he serves set funding priorities for the Island County Sheriff’s Department.

U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer calls for greater rural access to opioid overdose antidote

“…Clallam County’s opioid overdose death rate is nearly twice the state average…”

“While opioid use has no boundaries, limited public transportation, a lack of treatment facilities and long distances between health care providers can make it difficult for those who live in rural communities to access necessary drug treatment,” Kilmer wrote in his letter.”

Limited public transportation does not seem to slow down the folks who move heroin across US borders and into local communities.

DSC_0258 Sen. Angus King calls on military to help stem flow of heroin across southern border

“In testimony provided to the Senate Armed Forces Committee in March, Kelly said there is little the U.S. can do to prevent drug traffickers from entering the country.”

“They just pay the fare. No one checks their passports … they don’t go through metal detectors. No one cares why they are coming. They just ride this network,” Kelly said. “And the way the network stays in place is drug demand – primarily drug demand in the United States and then the unbelievable profits that come out of drug demand.”

“Until we really get around to the drug demand issue, there’s not an awful lot we’re going to be able to do to that network,” he said.

Homeland Security Vote of Confidence-

“Kelly testified that 100 percent of the heroin entering the U.S. is produced in Latin America, about half in Mexico.”

dsc_0009

Wasn’t the purpose of the post-911 wars to keep bad people from entering the US?

The US Marines thought so:

“We fight over there, so we don’t have to fight here”

These guys are risking their ass in the War on Terror to keep the US safe? How does this work while heroin traffickers cross into the US free of screening, scanning, pat downs, special IDs, inspection of personal items, etc.

 

Heroin traffickers are frequently successful at what they do. If terrorists were just as interested in entering the US- it appears that federal departments and agencies would have no way to stop them.

“Curry said that meth and heroin use is on the rise among adults in Flathead County and most of it is coming from Mexico and South America.”

“However, the crackdown on supplies and ingredients like pseudoephedrine has not reduced the number of users and now more meth is coming north from Mexico and South America.”

“The disadvantage to that strategy was that it created a big market for Mexican drug cartels,” said Amy Rue, executive director of the Montana Meth Project.

Sheriff: Meth, Heroin Use on the Rise in Flathead County

“Curry said that meth and heroin use is on the rise among adults in Flathead County and most of it is coming from Mexico and South America.”

“However, the crackdown on supplies and ingredients like pseudoephedrine has not reduced the number of users and now more meth is coming north from Mexico and South America.”

“The disadvantage to that strategy was that it created a big market for Mexican drug cartels,” said Amy Rue, executive director of the Montana Meth Project.
