Cartel Related

Rick Perry when asked about the shooting of the Kaufman Co. D.A. 
“We know the drug cartels are very, very active in this country,” the governor said. “It goes back to the whole issue of border security and the failure of the federal government ... to expend the dollars necessary to secure the border with Mexico.”

Not since the days of "Bordertown: Laredo" have we heard a public official make a reference to cartels when a crime occurs.  LaSanbe is not sure if Rick Perry was a fan of the A&E series, or the "cartel related" lament that the officers were so prone to use.  Nevertheless, that was the approach he decided to use when asked to speculate on the recent killings in north Texas.

Too bad Ron Paul wasn't nearby to help him along with the interview.
