Q: 

Mexican Drug Cartel Warns Police Officers in Arizona Border Town to ''Look the Other Way'' What say you ?

A:  I would say that with the dope cartels being armed and on american soil that they should be reclassified as INTERNATIONAL TERRORISTS and dealt with in a severe militant way....... A good reason to send in the federal Marshals.and/or the federal army. Well, this would of never happened if the US fixed its DRUG PROBLEM. Nogales used to be such a nice place to cross into Mexico. I would park in Nogales Az, and spend the night at one of the nice old hotels in Nogales Mexico. Its really sad that Mexico is being taken over by the cartels. I hope Mexico can win this war. I heard something like 15 police officers were murdered in Rocky Point, another great vacation site. (at least at one time it was great) Time for a bunch of armed Americans to...

Q: 

law enforcement career?

A:  Depending on what your assigned duties within the department or agency is, all three could be good choices for you. Don''t limit yourself to those three so soon. There are a plethora of good law enforcement positions. Consider the Diplomatic Security Service. It really doesn''t make such a difference when it comes to whether you work for a police department or a sheriff''s office or department. What police department or sheriff''s office or department you work for makes more of a difference. You seem to be on a great path. Keep it up!...

Q: 

How can a contract be legal?

A:  2 people sign it. For a contract to be legal, there have to be certain elements to it. For instance, something called ''consideration.'' After the involved parts had read it, agree it and sign it. All of the previous posters are correct regarding the elements of a contract, but in order for a contract to be legal (i.e. enforceable), there must a ''meeting of the minds'' supported by consideration. Essentially, there is an ''offer'' and the other party ''accepts'' the offer where the offer has a similar meaning to both parties. Additionally, the contract must be supported by ''consideration'' which is something one party is giving the other party for performance. For example, if you hire a babysitter and give her $20 dollars you are giving up money for her services and she giving you her...

Q: 

Can local police stop a suspected terrorist even though terrorism is a federal crime?

A:  it sounds like that''s the way it should work....(terrorism is not just a federal crime) You can bet that although local police can''t enforce federal laws...if a criminal act has taken place, they WILL act on it...& contact the Feds. I can''t imagine any police service turning a blind eye on a criminal act if it''s a federal offence. Terrorism is an extremely important issue with the country. Again, you can bet the police would not sit idly by & allow anything of this nature to take place. Last I checked - and conservative judges are onboard with this - terrorism involved conduct that could be prosecuted at the local level. Conduct like murder, property damage, weapons possession, or...

Q: 

Would it be legal for me to conduct a Dateline like setup to catch child predators online?

A:  Your local as well as Provincial/State and federal law enforcement agencies have dedicated professionals who not only understand the legally of such actions but are also trained and experienced in conducting such operations. Generally it is best to let the professionals do their jobs on their own without resorting to vigalante activity. However, if you suspect someone in your area is involved in any illegal activities or have other tips that could lead to arrests I''m sure the authorities would be more than happy to talk to you. If you are concerned about predators or what is being done in your area I suggest you visit the local authorities in your area and talk to your officers. You could also talk to or write to...

Q: 

Could Cheney be impeached?

A:  "Timothy" <Timothy.Horrigan...alumni.usc.edu> writes: Could this incident be enough to get him impeached? Politically, this incident isn''t enough, since Cheney & Bush are in firm control of both According to the _Nixon_ case (that''s the federal appeals court judge, not the former president), SCOTUS has declared that determining what is an impeachable offense falls to the Congress to decide. So if Congress thinks it''s enough, it is, and if Congress thinks it isn''t enough, it isn''t. In other words, it''s entirely political. houses of Congress--- but leaving the political thing aside, is negligently shooting a hunting partner bad enough to rise to the level of a "high crime or misdemeanour"? Also, does it make a difference if, (1)...

Q: 

Would the local department be entitled to share in the assets forfeited by the trafficking group.... ?

A:  If the trafficking is interstate, I would say federal prosecution would be the better route to go. First, a federal agency such as the DEA, has more resources to investigate such matters such as personnel in various offices/cities/states where the trafficking is occuring. Second, fed time is typically more severe (at least this is true in my state, California). If you an LEO I would recommend either referring the case to your task force (if one exists) as the task force will ussually involve fed entities as well. If not, contact your local DEA office. There must be a nexus to your home state in order to investigate. Most LEOs that are not Feds are only peace officers in their state. Again i...

Q: 

can local police tap cell coversations and suppena text mess

A:  can local law enforcement do that to use as evidence in a crime? Yes Would they even bother? If they want to do a thorough investigation Of course they can. And it is not much bother. They get irritated when people commit crimes. It might. But according to yourother post what they have is a LIE, not a full confession. If they think you've lied, they will keep looking. You don;t get to make that choice. They will go after the person who did it and you are going to end up in trouble as well. Not a good choice....
