That's funny how our current D.A. was indicted for laundering money for a kingpin. Our P.D. and Sheriffs dept. take payoffs from the Latin Kings, La Eme, and La Raza Unida. Go to the bar known as "The Spot" and you'll see high ranking law enforcement rubbing elbows with mafia guys drinking and snorting. This town has a long way to go to get the corruption out.

Just read the latest article in the Caller: http://www.caller.com/news/2010/aug/18/former...
You know his employees should definitely get indicted too cause they were lowly secretaries that knew their $29k/yr jobs didn't come with six figure bonuses!
Fuck, to think the voters of Alice put this guy in office...! Tell me, how does that shit sandwich taste now???

How ironic could this be. One day you have a bird nest on the ground, then the next day your a bird that lives on a nest in a caged prison. How ironic, one day you look forward to blowing your wad in Vegas, then the next day you hate the thaught of someone blowing their wad from their Vergas. It could not have happened to a more deserving person.

so who is going after Barrera? everyone knows he is crooked. since he entered office his main and only job was to find a way to discredit the previous DA. all of this regardless of what happened is costing the taxpayers money. he needs to get to work prosecute who he needs to prosecute. and by the way he gets Roger Saenz to do the audit. who is going to check his work. we all know what he did at his previous job(bank). it is all a vicious circle. one criminal working for another checking on another. who can you believe?????? it was a conflict of interest for roger to get hired being that his wife works for Barrera. it just keeps going..........
