Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announces cancellation of fence project along border at a time when Violence in the southern border states has reached a higher rate, with violence on both sides of the border, is this the best time to cancel plans to secure the border?
It is really the time to be canceling border safety projects?
Many people have to wonder, if she is really the right person for this very serious position of responsibility, with what allegedly could be considered mistake after mistake, the people of this nation are not allegedly safer now than before.
So here is the thing, if you have someone in charge of keeping people safe, and then you see this Arizona thing happen, you have to question just how safe are people in the US, when you honestly answer that question and you look at the record of this agency you have to come to one conclusion, allegedly, we need a new person who has more experience in security matters.
We need someone that has a long and valued history of providing a secure environment.
As difficult as that may be to believe it is none the less the truth and we need to asses that consideration in the very near future.
The border is not secure and we are not secure, even though there were signs that the alleged shooter in the Arizona crisis was mentally ill, no one took action, not the Sheriff, not the deputies, not even the boys parents or teachers, no one did anything to stop this, add to that the very real problem of no security on site at this time and you have the disaster that took the lives of so many fine people, it was not a political problem it was a security problem.
The Pima county Sheriff allegedly failed the people and allegedly all other agencies also failed in their duty to keep personal safe.
It is a sad truth that we need security at public events involving public attendance, it was a hard lesson to learn but we must find that lesson in the future or else we will face this terrible tragedy again.
While some irresponsible people attempt to blame politics for this problem the real issue is security it should have been provided or contracted.
