On Thursday, two shootings took place in Washington, D.C. that saw two people die and seven get injured.

The next day authorities were searching for a pair of suspects from one of the attacks who were likely armed with rifles.

During the first attack, one man was slain and five other people were wounded in a drive-by shooting. Two of the wounded were left in critical condition. Metropolitan Police commander Stuart Emerman claims that the victims were standing in the courtyard of an apartment complex in the Columbia Heights neighborhood.

The two suspects were spotted driving in a Nissan sedan and used an “AK style rifle,” according to a police statement.

“Detectives are interviewing witnesses and looking for camera footage,” Emerman commented.

About 30 minutes after the first shooting, three people were shot in the northeastern part of D.C. One person was killed in this incident. However, there was no sign from the start that these two shootings were connected, per NBC reports.

On Twitter, DC Police confirmed that the second shooting took place in the 1400 block of Rhode Island Avenue south of the Brookland neighborhood.

Recent waves of mass shootings have made gun policy the #1 political debate in America.

Although there are massive calls for gun control, legislation may not be a cure-all for places like Washington, D.C.

After all, D.C. features some of the toughest gun control laws in the nations such as universal background checks.

Despite these laws on the books, criminals still find ways to acquire firearms and commit heinous acts of violence.

For many politicians, this does not register and they continue to push for more anti-gun measures that inevitably leave the law-abiding defenseless and the criminals at a major advantage.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
