Murder Tales

Monday, May 03, 2010
by Man Eegee
We've been hearing for over a month that the murder of rancher Robert Krentz, whose property is adjacent to la frontera in Cochise County, was the headline reason to pass anti-migrant/anti-Latino legislation such as Arizona's Shame: SB1070. Well, Brady McCombs has a bombshell in today's Arizona Daily Star:

The killing of a Southern Arizona rancher that sparked an outcry to secure the border was not random, and investigators are focusing on an American suspect, the Arizona Daily Star has learned.

High-ranking government officials with credible information spoke to the Star, citing a desire to quell the fury over illegal immigration and drug smuggling set off by the shooting death of longtime rancher Robert Krentz on March 27.

They said Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever is investigating a person in the United States, not in Mexico, in connection with the shooting.

Of course, if the American turns out to be someone with brown skin, then it won't matter to the haters. They're hoping that the "attrition through enforcement" campaign works for all of us. If the killer turns out to be white, then I expect the same reaction from the Russel Pearce Fan Club as was expressed when the Flores family was slaughtered:
