I wonder if the Mexican police knew who they had captured this time or if they were notified by the media who this guy was.. Either way, that's great news, one criminal at a time..

Either "El Grande" is truly huge or those Mexican Marines that captured him were tiny. Time to get the Mexican Marines to the training tables and bulk them up....

Ever wonder why EP Times Forums sometimes appear with the ability to (Type in your comments below) and other times it does not.

This is called media control. This privilege to write and express ourselves is protected by our Constitution. So why is it that EP Times only let selective forums to be address? Mr. Chavez is dead, in reality, innocent until proven guilty. Never did Mr. Chavez ever claim his innocence. So?
El Grande and Chavez are scums to me. Now if only El Grande shoots himself, one less problem to be.

Now I believe, EP Times will remove this forum within the hour.

Kindly disagree, from lessons learned in Vietnam, lean and wiry equals quick with considerable endurance in the chase, in flanking moves, or with the didi mou moves when yer do-do gets strung out. In terms of light infantry; like Marines, beefed up and bulky is a real handicap when the troops you are up against are small, wiry and quick.

The reason they limit the user's ability to post comments is because they are mostly racist BS that don't add up anything to the discussion. If you notice, most if not all of the execution news won't allow you to post crap... I believe it is to give some respect to the families of the people slain in the mexican drug war. I recall the last crazy guy writing in a news article about a hanging body from a bridge ,that "everyone from jz must be decapitated because they are worthless" or something like that. It was exactly things like that, that made EP Times moderators stop letting your brothers from EP sister city being insulted in that way.

You must be a stupid moron, someone is writing about free speech, and you are accusing someone of not joining the armed services.

What does your accusation have to do with the comment made by the poster?

You probably are like O'reilly who never served a day in the army yourself, but want everyone else to go to war, anyone who disagrees with you must "Shut Up".

You're correct, the freedom to express ourselves is protected by the Constitution. What the Constitution does not do is require a private enterprise like the El Paso Times to provide you a forum for, or fund, your speech. The El Paso Times can do whatever it wants with its forums.

You want to speak/write freely and unfiltered about any topic of your choosing, go start a blog. You want a megaphone? Go buy one. Don't ask the Times to buy one for you.

Why doesn't the Huaman Rights Commision concern itself about the Right to Self Defence, the most vital of all human rights,without which no other rights are possible?
