It is funny how a lot of police critics...those who cry they are victim's of police rudeness, brutality, and so on are actually dope heads who despise any kind of authority. In Las Cruces there are quite a few who cry about the police picking on them yet they smoke dope. What is sad is that one of the Las Cruces City counsilors is one of these losers who cries about police treatment yet he has a past skeleton with the law. He is one of these police critics who has no business pointing the finger. Dopeheads, TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS AND PUT THE PIPE DOWN. QUIT CRYING AND BLAMING OTHERS. THE GOOD CITIZENS ARE SICK OF YOUR CRYING.

Told ya. Thank you DT for bringing this article to the attention of the citizens. Thank you local and Federal law enforcement for your efforts.
Although I don't agree that the "organization has been brought down", this is a positive step toward the attitude we, as citizens, need to take. Mata's just a minor peg in the war against meth. It's been a long time coming, and I assure you, the homework was done and will continue to be done in the effort to bring these scum in our local community to justice. Next step...attack the gang laws. It must change. We must educate our citizens and our state inhabitants as to the national "joke" we've become. Two strikes and "move to New Mexico". We need to take a stand. It's not a crime to be a member of a gang. It should be a huge crime. Our choice is at hand. We need to make our stand, our voice heard! We need to change the current laws regarding gangsters, drug dealers, illegal aliens. Two strikes and "AVOID New Mexico". That should be the national rumor instead of "Two strikes and move to New Mexico". Laws must be changed. In order to do that, we must elect officials who take a STRONG stand against drugs dealers, cartels, illegal aliens, etc. We all should know, that with the influx of drug dealing comes property crimes, crimes of violence (kidnapping) and crimes against children. Pornography, child abuse, property crimes, robbery, shoplifting, corruption of law officials (policemen) and a general rise of tax dollars devoted to re-active law enforcement cost us all dearly. We have the power. All we have to do is VOTE. Please, educate yourselves. Mr. Mata is one of a hundred. He's a little peg in a huge wheel. Let's break it off in the cartel's source of income.

These fine citizens of our community have obviously been framed.....NOT!!!! For those who do not understand the feds, they do not prosecute unless they think it is 1)either a sure-fire victory and/or 2) necessary to prosecute for the better of the community. In this case both reasons fit. See you boys!!! Don't let the prison cell hit you in the rear, because somebody else is waiting for your rear when the jail cell closes.
you are soo right.......

For those of you that think you need to criticize people for things you have heard about them, i have one thing to say to you all, GET A LIFE! As for those of you defending Juan Mata, thanks. He is my friend and a very good man, if you really knew him you would say the same. He is not a gang banger or a drug dealer, so before you go pointing fingers at people maybe you should get your facts straight. The only reason any of you say bad things about him is because you read it in the paper or heard it from someone else. You are the people the community nids to get rid of, the ones who judge people they don't even know. If you people knew anything you would know he is a good man and takes care of his children and attends college. Seems to me he's a good man trying to better his life.
Obviously you forgot to say "NO" to drugs. Good riddance, Mata!

Funny how that Daily Times reports this story as any other story. Why don't they print a summary of all of their past articles where they defended this wad like he was truly a victim?? How they attacked officer Briseno like he was picking on Mata? How they relentlessly harassed Farmington PD to defend their buddy? Because that would be embarassing and they would have to admit that they were wrong - ONCE AGAIN. DT is a joke.

first off she did leave him she lived with me when he harrassed her!! she lived with her family and he ran them off the road! and when the divorce was final he harrassed her day and night! they would call me and her family all hours of the night! ya she had a lot of kids by him and we wouldnt change that for the world! we love those kids and they are so much happier with out the mata family! and FYI barb went to the police several times and rene got off cuz he knew the dam cops! and if shes so messed up in the head why she own her own business now? why are her kids doing better in school? why are they happier now? ya so messed up that the state, the child services and everyone who knows her knows she IS BETTER THAN that scum bag rene!! shes happily married and is a proud mother of 6 beautiful kids that my family loves more than anything! and what the hell do those kids have to do with rene and juan and Junior and jeremiah being scum bag drug dealers?? nothing cuz obviously you aint got nothing to support you so called family's good reputation! the mata family needs to go back to the nasty hole they came from!! so u can kiss my ass!! u aint worth my time or anyone elses! so grow up and deal with the fact that ur tio jaun is just like his brother and is a scum bag dealer

Bottom line all...back to the subject at hand. The FPD, Region II, FBI, DEA,(sorry if I miss an entity) did a wonderful job in this case. Thank you to all the brave officers involved. We know how many hours were spent, away from your families...to bring these criminals to justice. Not just Mata, but the other criminals mentioned in the article.

Thank you DT for presenting the information professionally.

...And to the innocent family members of the accused, my heart goes out to you... Law breakers never seem to take into consideration the devastation they cause the innocent family members. Our prayers are with you as well.

Juan is bad! Take that sack of crap and put him in jail where he belongs. Keep him in there... let him sell his crap to the other pieces of crap in there. Hopefully they'll destroy each otehr in there!
