Rio Grande Texas: Home of Narcotics Investigator Torched by Golfo Cartel

RIO GRANDE CITY - Starr County authorities say they will not let cartel intimidation tactics get in the way of enforcing the law.
 
Starr County District Attorney Omar Escobar said one of his narcotics investigators was the victim of retaliation from the Gulf cartel.
 
Escobar said cartel members set his investigator's house on fire. The blaze happened at approximately 4:30 a.m. Tuesday on the 200 block of Shady Grove Drive.
 
Sheriff investigators said the house was under construction and there was no electricity service to the structure.
 
"We have information that one of our investigators (was) targeted because of ... his work as a narcotics investigator," Escobar said.
 
"We strongly believe this was basically the Camargo sector of the Gulf cartel that's responsible for this arson," Escobar said.
 
Escobar said they got a tip a few months ago that investigators were confiscating too many drug loads.
 
Escobar said the investigator works the area between Roma and Rio Grande City.
 
Escobar said his office is taking the lead in the investigation. He asked for assistance from the FBI and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Its about time carteles start targeting u.s law enforcement. Thats right have them runing scared

I would urge anyone who knows of a drug dealer, drug safe house or of a person in the illicit drug supply chain to call your local law enforcement tip line as a show of support for our officers. The officer is doing the job of keeping our country strong. Apparany the cartels have too much free time on their hands. Let's give them something to do, like defending themselves in court.

Fair game? Uhhhh...a "fair" game assumes both sides play by the same rules (or rules at all). This is criminals vs. society, not Broncos vs. Seahawks.

All of this could be avoided if the government stopped intruding into people's lives. People want to get high. Let them get high. I smoke weed almost everyday. I'm successful. I don't hurt anyone (directly). I bust rails on the weekends with a cop who's my neighbor and we go about our days like nothing. So really the bigger evil is this government intrusion in our lives restricting our personal freedoms. And unless this stops. This shit is going to go on forever.

oh geez that's a big house for a drug investigator. I wonder what he's doing with all those loads he's confiscating? Could he be selling them to the rival cartel?? or selling it himself?? South tx cops are super corrupt and this is just another typical dirty cop

The Gulf Cartel will find out real quick that this isn't Mexico. Here in the U.S. you don't kill or harass law enforcement and get away with it.

If a drug user new what moderation was maybe they wouldn't be such a problem to society. The problem is many get hooked, then start doing harder drugs. After that they loose self control and many resort to stealing, and a life of crime to support their habit. Just look at all the heroin addicts that started off on an addiction to painkillers.

you people are beyond redemption, just because a law enforcement element wants to make a house with a garage big enough to park a landing strip inside , it is no reason to suspect something shady about his character. besides , the cynder blocks appear to have sustained no big damage, the house will be finished soon as the fire damage is cleaned out, ha ha ha!

"rule number 1. You take my house I'll take yours"

Of course this assumes that cartel shitbags actually have their own house and not one they stold from some innocent or bought with bloody money. If they're trying to dismantle "your house" maybe it's because you shouldn't have it the way you got it. Me explico?

Ohoooo, hoooooo, if the cartels ever messed with us law enforcement, the us goverment woul be like we are comming for you mot@#&kers, with or without the mexican goverment's consent!!!! It's not like the us has never invaded a country looking for someone who was dumb enough to mess with them.

Don't take the drug money if you're not gonna follow directions. It gets your home burned on any side of the border. Fast and furious is proof they want this to happen.

You are making a fool of yourself with the old argument of look what you did to our ppl a hundred years ago. Make something of yourself and fight back from a position of power. Become a lawyer or something. Quit playing the victim card. Do you really want to play 'no-rules' with law enforcement agencies. They have tanks and aircraft. If they sneak up and torch your house, you might not like it. The vast majority of American LEO's follow the rule of law and have multiple layers of oversight. What they don't have is a bag of chips, a computer from mom and a corner of mom's basement from which to espouse a GTA view of the world.

burning the roof of a concrete block house is no big deal, the US has erected a brand new skyscrapper to replace the twin towers, drug traffickers will be having a hard timefor a little while, that's all; the US military will not invade mexico over this, mainly because they don't wanna start a good big war all over the continent, even if they could win it, they have invaded and controlled whole police departments all ober the country since they helped mexico start their shock forces with the pentatlon olimpico militar, that was nothing but a tool to create the leftist guerrillas
that they went on to destroy swftly. the mexican intelligence and police institutions like the mexican government, belong to the US, but covertly,and the US, directed by the merceneries from blackwater under any other name, has people doing their bidding all over latin-america, with US agents lording it over their latin-american counterparts, directing all the murdering of the poor peasants; the creation of the steel courtain to prevent the mexicans running from the terror in mexico from invading the US, way before the terror started, is a clear indication that the US knew of what was coming to the US and why, they planned it impeccably, such refinement can only be expected from the US, no more we hear "tear down this wall misterl
president"...

i'm sure that house had a lot of cooper wiring, plumbing and conduit, if it is gone, that would prove the gulf cartel did'nt do it, any crack head worth his salt will strip a house for the next hit, if they find some popo in the kitchen or the sala, other than the toilet, ican swear it was a chilango who did the deed, that is the way the chilangos sign their masterpieces, they are not mexican, but extra-terrestrials, and hellbent on invading the US, they will make the US armed services soil their avoirdupois, if they could not win a couple of little wars against a bunch of wooly heads armed with rocks and handfuls of sand in ten years,and 12 in afghanistan,(with the help of the
british army, the ONU etc,) having to lead and pave the way for the private military contractor merceneries of the US is not easy nor leads to victory...
