Published

on

A Houston woman shot and wounded an assailant who tried reaching for her purse, law enforcement officials say.

ABC 13 reports that the incident took place around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday on Creekbend at Fondren in southwest Houston.

According to law enforcement reports, Lachelle Hudgins parked her vehicle outside of her home when two men reached into her driver’s side window and grabbed her purse. Before they could take it and run away, Hughes instantly reached into her bag and grabbed her gun.
“I couldn’t do anything except scream. At one point, they told me to stop screaming, and he reached his hand inside my car,” Hudgins commented.

Officials claimed that she fired two rounds and the men ran off.

“It was all I had in my gun. I shot until I couldn’t shoot anymore,” Hudgins stated.

Shortly after, authorities received a call about a man with a gunshot wound on the other side of the complex.

The robbery suspect went through surgery and is now expected to face aggravated robbery charges.

Hudgins expressed her disbelief to ABC13 and was still in shock after she survived an attempted robbery without any bodily harm.

“I saved my life,” Hudgins proclaimed.

Hudgins’ case is one of the many cases of defensive gun use that occurs on a daily basis. In states like Texas, citizens are allowed to use firearms in self-defense when confronting criminal threats.

Thankfully, the media covered this instance of defensive gun use. It usually opts to either downplay defensive gun use cases or focus its attention exclusively on high profile mass shootings.

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.
