WashingtonPost: She had come to feed the dogs and chickens Friday morning but instead found the blood, then the bodies.

They lay strewn on the floor, her brother-in-law and cousin, limp inside the rural Ohio trailer home on Union Hill Road.

“There’s blood all over,” the breathless, frantic woman told a 911 dispatcher in a recording released over the weekend.  more

  1. Mexican cartels, illegals of course, have operated n that area for 3-4 years. The growing operations at the 3 farms are reportedly very large. The latest, aerial evidence of dog fighting rings and a family member states a large number of pit bulls on the property.

    Just your every day nice decent folks here in Ohio. C’mon Piketon is a town of 2,000. You mean no one had a clue what these people were up to? Dog fighting alone is a lucrative business in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. Messing with those people, not to mention the drug business, can get you killed.

    But hey it’s all about the evil of guns and nothing else according to liberals.

  2. I watched the press conference live (this is very local to me,just a few miles away from my country house) and the sheriff and the AG just sort of threw out this marijuana growing stuff at the very end, almost like throwing a dog a bone to get its attention.
    I’m going out on a limb and thinking they might have introduced this as a red herring to keep the press busy.
    They might have been growing weed but with 100 plus people in their extended family it could have been for personal use. The guy also raised fighting cocks (illegal to fight, but legal to raise)
    These are the kinds of people who may be breaking all kinds of laws, but would stop to help you change a flat tire along the road..

  3. The cartels financed the liberalization of pot laws here in CA, now the cartels are fighting each other here rather than in Mexico. They are also battling the native growers.
    Legalization does not end the cartels, it just brings them into your neighborhood.

    But drugs are benign …

    Drugs are not benign, of course. Drugs are just chemicals until you do something with them, and what you do may be good or may be bad.

    Govt prohibition of drugs, on the other hand, represents what you do with govt and laws, and in this case, banning drugs has cause immeasurably more harm than the intended good. And the intended good was neither achievable nor a use of govt power that recognized the relationship between free people and would-be rulers.

  5. Obama’s open borders invitation to criminals is the cause of the cartel battles we are just beginning to experience. Wait until the terrorists start their full on attacks. Pay homage to your president, if you elected him.

  6. Agreed Al. Iused to be against legalizing drugs, but the more crime and mayhem I see as a result of the trade, the more I am for legalizing it and let the free market find the price.

    Chicago calmed down after prohibition ended. It took a new vice to bring it back.

  7. UncleAl banning drugs has caused immeasurable more harm than good?
    Can you document that?
    Unless you think a person is better off dead than incarcerated and that children pushed into drug dependency is OK, you will have a hard time doing it.
    Societal costs have to be factored if one wants to live in society.
    I would have no problem with creating a preserve, say in new mexico where adults could become mental vegetables and die. I just don’t like it happening on the sidewalk in front of my house.
    We could empty the jails if only we got rid of laws against rape, assault, theft, well the list is obvious.

  8. I’m so glad they put Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul on generic TV. They’ve done so much to improve American culture.

    It is very surprising to see you make such an out-of-character incredibly stupid statement. It appears your emotions have overridden your reason.

  10. @Mr. Mxyzptlk That’s true they would be the first to help. During bad flooding in Morgan, Monroe and Washington Counties a decade a go I was traveling for my job. Similar people fed me bowls of deer chili and offered cold beer. I minded my own business, did my job and went home.

    Too bad this family didn’t stick to the usual lucrative ginseng growing and having a couple side of the road beer stands.

  11. ” Legalization does not end the cartels, it just brings them into your neighborhood. ”

    No seriously, if you just legalize all drugs, nothing bad will ever happen, ever, cuz I’ve been told that over and over.

    What all the subversion going on in and to America now, HowTH can anyone not think that the “War on Drugs” wasn’t subverted all throughout the Clinton dynasty and his leftovers during the W admin ?

  12. Thank goodness this happened. Now we will have the motivation to legalize criminal drug activities and we can all get high together with sweet, benign and harmless homemade chemical potions and start killing each other. It is great that our generation came along when we did with our higher level of knowledge and understanding of what is right or wrong and what is simply harmless self fulfillment and self indulgence!

  13. @Uncle Al: You actually read his shit? I quit weeks ago, skip every one of his posts. Not worth my time. I wholeheartedly recommend the same to all.

  14. UncleAl I was being sarcastic.
    The societal costs of drugs are increased with legalization.
    I did note that you didn’t produce anything to back up your claims.
    Every country that liberalizes drug laws reverses course within a generation. That is happening currently in the European states that tried it.
    Back when we didn’t give addicts money and healthcare, basically let them to starve or die, there was no need to regulate these things. Nature did it for us.
    If we are to remove nature from the equation, it needs to be replaced with something else.
    It is morally indefensible to remove the consequences of actions like drug abuse.

  15. @JohnS:

    The societal costs of drugs are increased with legalization.

    I call bullshit.

    Legalization removes almost all of the enormous profits possible to those criminals willing to risk arrest and imprisonment to supply the demand. As the penalties for drug dealing are so severe, adding murder and general mayhem to those activities represents a very small incremental risk. Given the piles of money, it is unsurprising that violent means are commonly used to protect or take over markets.

    That river of money has also corrupted police, courts, legislatures, whole countries at a time. Have you any concept of what the societal costs of that are? As you said to me, I did note that you didn’t produce anything to back up your claims. You are looking at the small part of the situation that pleases you to examine. Given the scope of that situation, you are being very foolish.
