While the O-Bomb regime slithers and dithers about the growing threat of drug cartel violence gathering on our Southern borders, Texas Governor Rick Perry has sent in the Texas Rangers for recon and special operations. The Rangers have been a cornerstone of Texas defense, law enforcement and myth since 1823 when they were first established as a unit by Stephen F. Austin. Details of the Ranger mission are unclear, but there are people in the Department of Public Safety who feel that the Ranger presence is having an effect on the bad guys.
Reports on the missions, however, are kept under wraps to preserve “operational security,” said public safety director Steve McCraw. He also said the program doesn’t want to brag. “Have there been arrests made? Yes,” McCraw said. “Have there been drug seizures? Yes. Have there been vehicle seizures? Yes.” But asked for data on just those points, McCraw said, “That’s not how we measure them.”
Heh. Those points used to be measured in ears and scalps.
Asked whether taxpayers might feel unsettled about secret operations by a state law enforcement agency, McCraw replied: “The only ones who should feel unsettled are the (Mexican drug) cartels.”
Legend has it that those who threw down or fired on a Ranger, died with their boots on and there was no attempt to take them in to custody. To the best of my knowledge, that hasn’t changed in 170 years.
