US Marines accused of cross-border trafficking

20
The Marine Corps, in criminal proceedings, has charged 13 junior officers arrested in July at Camp Pendleton, California for trafficking in human beings in exchange for "private gain."




The Tribunal will have to deal with the criminal actions of corporals from the 1th Marine Division, which include: failure to comply with orders, drug-related offenses, threats, theft, false testimony and transportation of illegal immigrants.

The group was exposed after 3 on July three American Mexicans who did not have the documents required to stay in the United States were spotted by American customs and border guards patrolling the border east of San Diego in a car with two marines. All five were detained.

Three weeks later, 16 marines were arrested and eight more were detained for their alleged involvement in the smuggling of people and related crimes, including drugs.

One of the suspects is accused of embezzlement of military equipment, which he equipped with the delivery of illegal immigrants - four smoke bombs, 20 blank cartridges of caliber 5,56 mm and a parachute type flare. At the military base, he illegally stored the 9 mm SIG Sauer pistol.

The fact that the marines transported illegal immigrants from Mexico suggests that the “Trump wall” is unlikely to help to curb illegal migration traffic. The issue of corruption comes first.

    And what did they expect from the Anglo-Saxon bandits? The Anglo-Saxon civilization has as much morality and peace as there is compassion in the alligator.

        And what does "human trafficking" have to do with it?
        They helped illegal immigrants, but did not trade them.
        In vain they got in touch with drugs. The CIA does not tolerate competitors in this lucrative business. Therefore, they got burned. Otherwise, why would a patrol decide to check a car with marines?

      And why did you decide that these are bandits?
      If Biden wins, they'll be called heroes. All charges will be dropped and awarded. Compensating for lost profits. They will make millions from their memoir How I Fought Trump, and Hollywood will make a movie about them.

      According to some experts, the CIA somehow controls almost the entire Afghan and Colombian drug trafficking.
      And this is with the approval of the government and some congressmen, since colossal expenses for covert operations cannot be financed from the budget - evidence and a thread can be unwound.

          Well now it’s clear why in Ukraine they built a wall between Ukraine and Russia.

    I immediately remembered a good comedy thriller "Buffalo Soldiers", quite accurate portraits of the most enterprising Yankees in the US Armed Forces, as it turns out in reality. laughing

    Normally, they performed like that. They took two - in three weeks already 16. The guys didn’t lock themselves, courageously leaked everyone laughing It would be necessary for Pan Rudenko to record this news on the channel, let him comment. As unbiased as he can. And so they got stuck in full. If they have a "dismissal without honors" for violating a contract without a crime, in fact, a wolf ticket. Hang yourself immediately. So what will be for these arts?

    Combine military service with business? And why not if the United States is the freest and most democratic country (I warn you right away - the irony). They have generals in corrupt relations with large defense industry companies, and what remains for the junior officials? Only steal and trade what you can.

      Standard journalistic trick. If the headline had written "A group of marines in the United States accused of transporting illegal immigrants," no one would have paid attention to it.

    Everything is natural. Why is it possible for any congressmen and senators to lobby for the interests of companies and entire countries for a fee, while the marines should not carry illegal migrants and sell drugs?

    If we start planting such carriers, how much cleaner it will become in the cities ...
    And then it’s constant: Gaster works at the construction site, then a message arrives that there will be a SUDDEN check indicating when and what time. On this day, the construction freezes. 10-20 Russian works, the rest are not.

    In Afghanistan (and not only there) under the control of the CIA, drug production on a large scale has been established. What can we say about these small pranks of the defenders of democracy. :-)
