Today's Milenio poll;
EPN 48%, JVM 26%, AMLO 21% GQT 5%

Note: Today's Eagle Pass Daily has some interesting stats from
Sheriff Tomas S.Herrera who is running for re-election. ( in
english) Don't know how to copy it to this format.

Note: for the locals, an important hit. The drug gangs have taken
quite a few losses over the last few months in this area. Have also
heard that couple of the local army commanders have been re-
assigned. No big busts in the area for several weeks now. Higher
ups betting on PRI regaining the presidency?

Former sheriff's deputy gets prison in drug conspiracy

McALLEN — As he stood in federal court facing judgment Monday
morning, Omar Salazar had only one word to describe what drove him to
toss his law enforcement career away:

The former Hidalgo County sheriff's deputy admitted to a marijuana
trafficking conspiracy and testified against his onetime partner in
burglary investigations — and selling drugs.

Flipping on Heriberto Diaz, 43, a former investigator himself serving
an 11-year sentence for the crime, led Chief U.S. District Judge
Ricardo Hinojosa to sentence Salazar to two-and-a-half years in
prison — less than half the typical minimum sentence for a marijuana
conspiracy case.

"You are paying the price for your decision — you admitted it,"
Hinojosa told Salazar, 44, at a sentencing hearing Monday morning in
U.S. District Court. "So after the price is paid, you can go back and
serve your community once again."

For Salazar, that service won't be in law enforcement. He told the
judge he has learned a new trade — cutting hair — that he said he has
performed on other inmates while awaiting sentencing.

Monday's sentencing hearing marked the latest high-profile case
involving Rio Grande Valley law enforcement officers betraying fellow
officers and the communities they serve.

"It was a real tragedy all the way around — a tragedy in that they
betrayed the public and the badge and now his kids are going to be
without a father for a while," Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño
said Monday. "The guy messed up, the guy got adjudicated and now he
got sentenced so he can go pay for it.
"It's a done deal."

The case traces back to late 2009, when a Mission police officer
responded to radio traffic and found Diaz and Salazar inside a
residence with 354 pounds of marijuana inside. Loading the bundles
into a pickup truck were Joel and Jorge Duncan, father and son drug
smugglers who tipped off the deputies to the drug load and stood to
benefit from the scheme.

Hinojosa sentenced Joel Duncan to 98 months in prison Monday afternoon.

Unlike Salazar, Diaz maintained his innocence through a jury trial
that ended with a guilty verdict and a sentencing hearing in March
that gave him more than a decade behind bars. Agents said Monday that
unlike Diaz, Salazar did not fail any lie detector tests administered
when investigators unraveled their drug trafficking scheme.

Clad in a powder-blue, collared shirt with trim black hair, Salazar
learned his sentence Monday without any family members present in the
courtroom. His body occasionally shook as he looked at the floor
awaiting his turn to go before the judge.

Salazar's apparent nervousness showed before Hinojosa, whose incisive
questioning left the former deputy to respond with fragmented, quiet
responses barely audible in the courtroom.

"Were you ever tempted to say anything to stop or not do this?"
Hinojosa asked.
"I never wanted to do it until it happened," Salazar responded. "I
didn't want to do it."
"But you did," Hinojosa said. "How much did you get paid for this?"
"I don't know," Salazar responded.
"So you were greedy, but you don't know how greedy?" Hinojosa fired
"No," Salazar said.

Salazar claimed the decision to act on the Duncans' tip that
marijuana could be found at the Mission residence happened on a
moment's notice, so much that it turned him into "a different person
for 20 minutes."

"This wasn't just a 20-minute thing," Hinojosa said. "Let's face it,
"No, sir," Salazar mumbled.

After about half an hour answering the judge's questions, Salazar
learned his cooperation with prosecutors and FBI agents would prove
beneficial, with a prison sentence less than half the recommended
amount under federal guidelines.

"There is no doubt that during the time you did this, you stepped on
what you did in public service your whole life," Hinojosa said.
"There is nothing that will change that day. There is nothing that
will change your prison sentence."
