Cocaine Suppressed for Language Glitch

CORPUS CHRISTI (CN) – Eight kilos of cocaine the Border Patrol found in a car can’t be used as evidence because the driver didn’t know he could object to the search, a federal judge ruled.

The Border Patrol suspected the driver was smuggling human organs, according to the arrest report . Key to the judge’s granting suppression of evidence was the use of a Spanish phrase by a Border Patrol agent who is not fluent in the language.

Joaquin Vasquez-Gutierrez, of Mexico, pulled his 2014 Nissan Sentra into a Border Patrol checkpoint in Sarita, Texas on Oct. 12, 2014, and agent Lisa Taranto ran the car’s license plate, court records show.

Sarita, pop. 238, the seat of Kenedy County, is about 90 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border.

The Roots of Radicalism We Don’t Discuss

The Roots of Radicalism We Don’t Discuss


Have you ever been so heartbroken that you joined the conservative faction of a local mosque? Khalid did, because he felt he had no other way to cope.

Khalid’s heartbreak happened in college. But the seeds for his slide into fundamentalism were planted before that. Khalid was born to Afghan parents in New York. And his story offers a different answer to the question of why American, French, or British youth from standard, middle class families turn to religious fundamentalism. It’s the holy grail of policy discussions, and tends to yield answers focused on external factors – like economic hardship or assimilation pressures. But a glance at the effect of internal household pressures reveals insights that are just as critical to any future policy solutions.
