This story is absolutely disgusting. Whats even more disgusting is that people are using it to hurl childish insults at each other. Does anyone even doubt a story like this is real? Has anyone seen the level of violence along our Borders? This isn't a race/class issue. Put aside conservative vs. liberal for a second and just try to see throught the BS and realise this is a huge problem. All I'm sayin.
Well said, marinejcksn - but the obvious racially charged "headline" of this thread is just simple sensationalism.
My point in all of this is simply put up - or shut up.
Even an admitted piece-of-shit like Nancy Grace won’t touch this "non-story."
LinkThis story was originally reported on by a Bradenton Herald reporter, from and interview with a woman from an anti-human trafficking organization.
In that interview, the women discussed two separate incidents to which the reporter, when writing the story, decided to take it upon himself to combine the incidents into one story, thereby getting the whole thing wrong.
This was, in turn, picked up by the Florida counter terrorist agency who reported it to Stewart who then testified.
So it turns out that the events did not take place as originally described. However, the fault was that the original reporter intentionally combined the stories to sell newspapers.
Ah, the state of journalism today.
BTW, I contacted the AG office myself and they confirmed this series of events.
Seems to me the prudent course of action is to ensure the facts are straight before reporting this. I recall vaguely a certain Liberal who desperately wanted to report something derogatory on national TV about a certain highly elected official's military service that turned out to be false.
