Deming Police have nothing else to do then search for people with warrents. Are you freaking serious. There are so much other stuff they need to be doing like getting the drugs off the street. I'm telling you what a joke our police are in Deming.

Why do you expect them to get the drugs off the streets. In over 40 years no one has been able to do it. We have spent over a trillion dollars and they are cheaper and easier to get than ever.

Deming police and other agencies are only doing one of their jobs, which are all part of their duties. Catching people that aren't complying and shouldn't be getting away with not paying fines, failure to appear, etc. they've broken the law and got caught. We've seen articles in the paper about drug busts, arresting people for crimes they commit, etc. this is all part of the big picture and many different jobs they have to do so don't be so quick to complain they aren't doing what's important, you know it's not an easy job, so give them a break.

''The Luna County Sheriff's Office, said Lt. Gary Leyba, had six members of its staff working eight hours a day on the sweep. That does not include Reserves.''

Don't most people who work full time work eight hours a day? So is this an unusual practice for the LCSO?

Actually, deputies work 10-hour days, four-day weeks. Those used for the sweep were working in addition to deputies working regular shifts. Thus, OVERTIME.

What's taken so long for them to do this? Problem is not so much the police or S.O.'S deputies, its the damn court's. This happens throughout the entire U.S. Heck I worked in law enforcement for many years in California and seen Peace Officers stop vehicles for whatever their reason was, and the driver/s had outstanding warrants and had to let them go cuz either they were out of state or different counties and can not be extradited unless the warrant says...and even then the place who wants these people will say do not hold these people because we have one to pick them... so they are let go...this happens over and over. Now this maybe off the subject somewhat, but what does bother me is seeing the law speeding down the roads in the cities, inter-state roads and hiways, NM State P.D. are the biggest offenders, and they are not running code as they are suppose to if it is an emergency or urgent call. Also take a look at some or our law enforcement officers homes.. they looks like dumps.... they should be fined by the city or county depending where they live, example Rockhound Rd just west of Mccann rd, a Deming PD car in front of his home, he lived in the lot next to where he lives now, had a manufactured home put on the new lot and left the old lot all trashed out, Huge pile of dried weeds and trash all over the lot, its one, a eye sore, two. it is a big fire hazard..... the law must set the example for one to follow!

Thank you for bringing this part up because it's been an issue with me, but it'sthe BP flying by me more than other officials I've noticed. I go 55 or 60 mph. depending on what part of Hwy. 11 I'm driving, and BP are passing me up and are way over the speed limit, no sirens/lights going either, and at times they pass me in "no passing" zones. One time a car was coming out of a side street and the BP had to gun it to get in front of me, that could have been a catastrophe. I've complained on this Forum several months ago and I did notice they got better, at least for awhile, so I'm asking them again to please follow the speed limit like the rest of us are supposed to, I'd like to get home in one piece thank you very much.

I want to commend this combined operational task force for their efforts to clear up a lot of unrecovered fines & to also rid Luna County of bad actors. I saw one of the teams after hiking, last week, & sensed something positive was up. Having seen some drug & illegal immigrant activity last week in the Whetstone Mountains, & being a long time hiker in the Floridas & Tres Hermanas, as well as the Cooke's Range, I've seen evidence of immigrant camps. These are our wild areas, & I want to urge all residents of our various Southwest New Mexican counties: Doña Ana; Grant; Hidalgo; Luna, to urge their congressional representatives & senators to move on Comprehensive Immigration Reform. That needs to happen, so the influx of illegals can be slowed to a trickle. Resetting the "default" on a computer is one process that's an analogous exercise for Border Reforms. Silliness re: to deport between 11 - 20 MILLION illegals of all nationalities, is pie-in-the-sky. Not even considering the horrible image that many people flowing to the borders day after day, for several years, would destroy our credibility in the world. There are ways illegals can stay; pay back income & social security taxes; register w/biometric data; initiate proceedings to either become citizens, & begin that long process, and absolutely go to the BACK OF THAT line; agree to immediately begin steps to either leave within 9 months; or, begin citizen ship processes immediately. The U.S. Marshalls and other law enforcement can keep drug cartelista connections off balance, with such operations. Recommend to your congressional representatives, too, that Republican proposals to cut 1000 Border Patrol & ICE positions is stupid. We're just getting the Border more manageable. The Republicans who called for Border Security yet want to cut 1000 positions, are hypocrites of the first order. Our Border Patrol & ICE, as well as U.S. Marshalls, need to stay @ robust levels for 4-5 more years.

Concerning Tres Hermanas: I was told this about 10 yrs. ago when I decided that I wanted to get some nice rocks in this area. I was warned against doing so by friends. There are lots of mines there that drug smugglers use. They lower drugs into a mine shaft by rope and leave. Next person to come along is the person that will pull it out of the mine shaft and if you're at the right mine at the wrong time it could spell disaster for you. My friends were doing just that as 2 BP agents on horseback saw them and gave them that speech, that's what made me re-think about going there alone. These drug smugglers have many clever ways of passing these drugs from one dealer to the next, so one has to be very careful in the surrounding mountains. Safety in numbers and carrying a weapon wouldn't be a bad idea either if you're in these mountains.

I wonder if anyone with the last name of Vega was arrested in the southern part of the county. Scam master needs to be jailed and disciplined.

Lets see how the new $ 10,000 dollar computers at the LCSO can round up the bad guys.
