Family of Mexican drug dealer who overdosed get $1 million from US taxpayers



The family of a Mexican drug mule who tried to smuggle narcotics across the border received 1 million dollars in a settlement of a lawsuit over the incident.

Cruz Velazquez Acevedo began convulsing shortly after he drank the liquid methamphetamine he’d brought with him from Tijuana, Mexico.

The 16-year-old had just crossed the U.S.-Mexico border to San Diego and was going through the San Ysidro Port of Entry. He was carrying two bottles of liquid that he claimed was apple juice. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers told him to drink it to prove he wasn’t lying, court records say.

The teen took four sips.

Then, he began sweating profusely. He screamed and clenched his fists.

In a matter of minutes, his temperature soared to 105 degrees, his family’s attorney said. His pulse reached an alarming rate of 220 beats per minute — more than twice the normal rate for adults.

“Mi corazón! Mi corazón!” Acevedo screamed, according to court records — “My heart! My heart!”

He was dead about two hours later.

So what's the problem? In my opinion, drug dealers should be executed. Instead, his family walked away with a million dollars.

The family’s attorney, Eugene Iredale, acknowledged that the teen did something wrong when he tried to bring drugs into the United States on Nov. 18, 2013.

“But he’s a 16-year-old boy with all the immaturity and bad judgment that might be characteristic of any 16-year-old kid,” Iredale told The Washington Post. “He was basically a good boy...

A "good boy" who was smuggling methamphetamines which could kill Americans. The "good boy" knew what he was being asked to drink. All he had to do was tell the truth. Instead, he decided to do something stupid. What's outrageous is that the US government paid this amount in a settlement. This "good boy" wasn't even an American. He was a foreign drug dealer. He had no rights under the US Constitution. By other accounts, the "good boy" volunteered to drink the liquid without any prompting.

Acevedo died from the very poison he was trying to peddle to others. How could that be anything other than poetic justice?

Trump Admin. promises to do nothing about the national debt


One of the most popular things to do in Washington D.C. is to come up with a "plan" to eliminate the deficit in ten years. For some reason politicians always come up with a ten year plan. I think they pick ten years out so it is short enough to take somewhat seriously, but long enough for a politician to serve in Washington and then to leave before the ten years are up. In any event, people forget about the ten year plans relatively quickly so in two or four years a "new" 10 year plan to eliminate deficit can be created, even before the old one has "come to fruition".

Are women with two last names modern, or mean?


Women with two last names, their maiden name and the name of their husbands (sometimes connected with the dreaded hyphen), used to be almost exclusively strident feminists who felt they were losing their identity by taking their husband's last name while discarding their own. Hillary Clinton always became Hillary "Rodham" Clinton after she won an election; and Debbie "Wasserman" Schultz always used both names even as people parodied her as Debbie "Was a Man" Schultz. But women other than hardcore feminists seem to be using two names as well.
