You are pretty close, Angry Voter. If they had not been caught, a train could have been wrecked, possibly with chemicals on board. While the RR claims that was a little used section of tracks, what was to prevent them from going on to more active tracks had they not been caught. The sad part is that if the illegals are deported, they will be back inside a month. Wonder what all the warm fuzzy feelings people say about these two "just trying to make a better living"?

You assume too much "sandy" and you know what happens when you assume things. I live near Mars Hill, in Buncombe County, and am a college educated professional in my late 50's. I would not know what meth looked like if someone placed it in my hand. Perhaps, before you single out a poster to call them a meth head, you should know more of what you are talking about. Do YOU speak from experience?

chill out professor i really didn't mean you in the sense of a personal attack. I simply mean random candler meth heads. I just used your quote because of your unique racist views regarding the fine folks of Mexico. So to sum up you are not a meth head, just another tight ass racist a hole,my mistake.

"Random meth heads"?
'fine folks from Mexico'?

How in the world do you get from being an illegal alien to fine folks from Mexico? Illegal aliens come here from all over. Its just some folks who are ignorant think that all illegals are from Mexico and make it a racist thing. Illegal aliens have no business being here and our top notch government is slack in enforcing it's own laws.

His comment is not unique. Lighten up and look around for yourself.

Now, what is a random meth head?

Nope Sandy, I don't see nothing racist in this comment. Another chit-stirrer floats to the top.

Fine, I'll put in an observation, knowing you can't drop the "r" bomb on me without looking truly stupid.

The point of posting this particular piece was to highlight the failure (difference) in reporting of FACTS when it comes to the media and their political/social leanings. I have no interest in the country of origin only that these men were and are illegally in the US. That alone is a federal crime and they compounded it by stealing metal to trade as scrap which could potentially put many legal citizens in danger of injury or death.

I find the argument mind boggling that you would praise those committing multiple felonies for their industrious efforts to commit those crimes. Are you honestly saying that if a criminal worked hard to steal, con, extort, injure, or murder that we should cut them a break because they worked hard to accomplish it?

As to the "meth", well I have to agree with the learned poster previously, I have never seen or touched meth personally. I have seen it in pictures and video as well as knowing the basic recipe and stupidity involved in creating it. I would know it on sight and steer way clear of ever letting some idiot put it in my hand (no offense Slingblade). Oddly Sandy, you seem to draw the conclusion that meth is a solely Caucasian epidemic. I hate to break it to you but illegals have been arrested for making/selling meth as well. That kind of blows your argument and insult to pieces.

Please note that my point had been the failure to report honestly, all the facts. Also note that the person making this racial, unlike those just venting frustration about illegal immigration, argument is the far left pro inclusive yet intolerant poster.

Maybe #1 was too long. Lets try again in pieces.

"His company won't buy anything that looks like railroad property without a letter, Cloninger said.
“We turned away a guy yesterday that came in with an old piece of track,” he said.
Henderson County Sheriff's deputies this week arrested Cruz Mario Carnacion, 37, and Jose Luis Trejo-Yanez, after someone called 911 on Sunday to report suspicious activity along tracks near West Blue Ridge Road.
The men were found with the spikes, which either were pulled from railroad ties or found nearby, Sheriff Rick Davis said."

"Illegal Immigrants Caught Sabotaging American Train Tracks

March 3, 2009

Contact: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is requesting that Federal authorities charge the illegal aliens caught stealing over 500 railroad spikes in North Carolina with terrorism charges, since they entered America illegally and worked to sabotage train tracks in a way that could have resulted in mass casualties.

"We are at war with terrorists and stealing train spikes, which is likely to cause a train to derail is an act of terrorism," said William Gheen of ALIPAC. "The Obama administration must admit that their failure to adequately enforce our border and immigration laws is putting American lives at risk of terrorism."

The Asheville Citizen Times reported on March 2, 2010 that police had arrested TWO ILLEGAL ALIENS, Cruz Mario Carnacion, 37 and Jose Luis Trejo-Yanez for being in possession of more than 500 STOLEN 7-inch spike's that were taken from the railroad tracks owned by Norfolk Southern Railroad.

This latest incident is similar to arrests of illegal aliens stealing railroad tracks and spikes from railroads near Yuma, AZ, which was reported by US Customs and Border Patrol on March 11, 2008.

"We believe that this documented pattern of illegal immigrants stealing railroad parts from tracks and putting American lives at risk is a form of terrorism that will likely not be reported by the national media,"said William Gheen. "America and Americans are under attack in our own nation and many times illegal aliens are engaging in domestic terrorism against our citizens and nation."

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is warning Americans of these illegal alien terrorism attempts through an massive online network of supporters and blogger. Activists across the nation are being encouraged to contact their local talk radio shows and elected officials to share this information about the illegal aliens stealing railroad spikes. Activists are also being asked to call their members of Congress and Janet Napolitano at the Department of Homeland Security to ask her to focus on enforcing our existing immigration laws, instead of focusing on trying to pass the current AMNESTY legislation active in Congress."

Stealing spikes out of the RR is no different than tossing rocks from an Interstate over pass at the traffic below. These people should be charged with one count of atttempted murder per spike. Enough of this garbage. And to those who removed post # 1...... looks like you were unable to stiffle the truth as much as you try, shame on you for pretending to be journalists and censoring facts.

No, putting a penny on the tracks won't derail no train, but pulling spikes from the tracks will. If the train is going fast enough, don't be standing nowhere near, because the impact of the wheels going at speed could melt the coin, and the hot metal could hit you.

Where do you get all your idiot information?
