US border guard gets 20 years for drug corruption


Martha Garnica
was in league with a Mexican drug cartel and allowed large shipments of drugs to pass through the border, mostly by having her or other corrupted guards at a specific aisle at the check point. Maybe a possible solution to that would be to have vehicles randomly assigned to lanes by a computer using a random number generator. Another, a better solution, is to legalize marijuana. Because she’s not the only one.

And in other corruption news

Former Mayor of Hartford CT Eddie Perez, once a genuine progressive and great hope for that city, got three years for corruption based on the remodeling of his home and cover up thereof.
