"(CNN) -- A sheriff's deputy in central Arizona was shot Friday afternoon by a suspected drug trafficker, authorities said.The shoot out had nothing to do with the recently enacted anti-illegal immigration law since that law doesn't go into effect for 90 days. Pima County is a busy entrance point for drug traffickers.
The Pinal(sic) County deputy, who was not immediately identified, contacted authorities after being wounded in the desert, saying he had been shot by an illegal immigrant with an AK-47, said Lt. Tammy Villar, a sheriff's spokeswoman.
The deputy radioed that he had encountered five men, some wielding long guns and handguns, and said they were carrying a large amount of marijuana."
"The deputy was shot in the left abdomen and suffered a superficial wound, law enforcement sources said.Well wishes and prayers for the Deputy's speedy recovery, and the capture of the violent criminal who shot him.
The search for the shooter continued into the evening."
Although, such a capture maybe unlikely based upon the corrupt comments from the Sheriff whom that wounded deputy works under, only for the fact that the Pima County Sheriff seems to think he can pick n choose which laws he enforces.
From the Jawa Report: Pima County Arizona Sheriff Clarence Dupnik Refuses To Enforce "Racist" Immigration Law.
Sheriff Dupnik is a democrat. He is up for re-election in 2012.
But, wait. There's more!
Sheriff Dupnik isn't the only democrat who is hesitant to aggressively defend our porous southern border against the bloody banditos who traffic in drugs and humans.
In this video, Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) spewed his open borders vitriol and calls a CNS reporter "punkish" for asking about sealing the border against drug smuggling.
These democrats, and their seditious 'open borders' philosophy are dangerous.
