Borderland Beat reports Chicago’s Little Village is a distribution hub for the primary recipient of guns provided by ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious.
Briefly quoting the Borderland Beat item linked above:
Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood is home to more than 500,000 residents of Mexican descent and is known for its Cinco de Mayo festival and bustling Mexican Independence Day parade. But federal authorities say that Little Village is also home to something else: an American branch of the Mexican Sinaloa drug cartel.
Members of Mexicos most powerful cartel are selling a record amount of heroin and methamphetamine from Little Village, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration. From there, the drugs are moving onto the streets of south and west Chicago, where they are sold in assembly-line fashion in mostly African American neighborhoods.
And Chicago, with its Combine of youth gangs, the mob, and the political machine, is a “closed town.” A town where things are handled “The Chicago Way,” with at least the approval of the Chicago Combine.
Insiders who get too pushy and outsiders trying to muscle in on gang or mob territory are generally found under a bridge somewhere, with a .380 in their hand and a bullet in their brain. The cause of death is determined on the way to the crematorium, the death certificate written as the trolley with the body slowly rolls toward the flames. And what was a problem yesterday is forgotten today.
But we know there is no connection between the Sinaloa Cartel and the Chicago Combine. And since there is no connection between the Cartel and the Combine, there can be no connection between the Cartel – and those who authorized the various ATF Operations.
