Riots Break Out in Lousville and Cities Across the US Following Breonna Taylor Grand Jury Decision to Not Charge Officers with Murder

Protests erupted across the country Wednesday night after a Kentucky grand jury announced its decision to not bring murder charges against officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor. The democrats, the media, including sports coverage, and late night hosts had been pushing a false narrative for weeks following her death. The Democratic candidate for president, Joe Biden, and his running mate, Kamala Harris, tweeted the street slogan, “Say Her Name,” amid a wave of raucous and sometimes violent protests from coast to coast.

The media claimed Breonna Taylor was shot during a “no knock” warrant – False.
The media claimed Breonna Taylor was shot in her bed – False.
The media claimed Breonna Taylor was murdered – False.

Everything the media and lawyer Ben Crump claimed about the death of Breonna Taylor and the circumstances around her death was based on lies.

The truth had finally emerged about Breonna Taylor’s death 6 months earlier in March 2020.  It turns out (surprise!) that the Democrat party — in Congress, in the media, and on the streets — had been lying.  Taylor was not a completely innocent woman whom racist police slaughtered in her bed during a no-knock raid.  Instead, she was the victim of her poor choices in men: her friendship with a local drug kingpin justified the raid, and her boyfriend’s decision to open fire on police who had knocked and identified themselves led to her shooting.  That certainly doesn’t mean she deserved to die, but it explains why she did.

The case begins with Breonna’s ex-boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover.  The Louisville Courier-Journal delved deeply into that relationship, while the following is a summary. Glover is an accused drug-trafficker who is believed to be part of a large drug-trafficking and weapons-trafficking ring in Louisville.  According to an affidavit, Glover went to Taylor’s apartment in January, left the apartment holding a package, and went straight to a “known drug house.”

That wasn’t Glover’s only trip to Breonna’s apartment. Police had placed a tracking device on Glover’s car, which showed he made frequent trips to her apartment, leading police to believe that her apartment was a holding place for drugs and money.  Glover was also heard telling someone that Taylor handled his money, although there is no evidence that this statement was true.

Taylor also seemed familiar with Glover’s world of drugs.  When he was arrested in January, he called to ask her to locate an associate who could post bail.  She answered that the associate was “already at the trap,” slang for a drug-trafficking house.  On another occasion, Taylor posted a $2,500 bond for Darreal Forest, another man who police suspect was involved in the drug ring.

The Courier-Journal has still more evidence of the close connection between Glover and Taylor.  That’s why the police got a warrant to search Taylor’s house. Whether or not Taylor was involved in the drug and weapons ring, she ran with a bad crowd.  She would have done well to heed Aesop, who warned, “If you choose bad companions, no one will believe that you are anything but bad yourself.” Taylor didn’t choose any more wisely when it came to her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker.  He was the reason the police shot Breonna.

Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron held a press conference on September 23rd, explaining all of the grand jury’s findings.  The most important one was that the police did not do a no-knock raid.  That was what everyone was told to justify why Breonna’s boyfriend, Walker, shot at the police when they entered the apartment:

Evidence shows that officers both knocked and announced their presence at the apartment. The officers’ statements about their announcement are corroborated by an independent witness who was near in a proximity to apartment four. In other words, the warrant was not served as a no-knock warrant.

When Walker and Taylor did not answer the door, the officers broke the door.  Sergeant Mattingly entered, saw Walker with a gun pointed at him, and felt himself get shot.  It happened that quickly.  Walker confirmed that he fired the first shot, and ballistics shows his bullet wounded Mattingly.

At that point, all of the officers opened fire.  As a reminder, they did it because one of their own had taken a bullet, and they all knew that they were in a kill or be killed situation.  Moreover, the barrage of bullets they fired (32 bullets) was appropriate.  The magical single shot that takes out the bad guy in Hollywood movies doesn’t exist.  Once you start shooting, you must shoot to end the threat completely.

Six of the bullets struck Breonna.  It’s telling that none hit Walker.  Had he run away or hidden behind her?  Or was she just very unlucky?  Cameron doesn’t say.

Concerning the fatal shots, Cameron debunks another lie.  The media claimed that Breonna was in bed, implying a passive figure whom the police massacred.  In fact, Taylor was standing at Walker’s side, and she knew or should have known that Walker was armed:

Sergeant Mattingly identified two individuals standing beside one another at the end of the hall, a male and a female. In his statement, he says that the male was holding a gun, arms extended in a shooting stance.

Both Cameron and the grand jury showed real bravery in refusing to indict police officers who did everything by the book, only to find themselves under fire.  Although she did not deserve to die, the fact is that Breonna made terrible choices when it came to the men in her life.  These choices started a chain reaction that ended with her dying almost instantly from one of the six bullets that hit her.

One officer, Brett Hankison, who did not shoot any person, was charged with “wonton endangerment” for haphazardly firing 10 shots that entered the adjacent apartment unit. A week earlier, the city of Louisville said it would pay $12 million to Ms. Taylor’s estate as part of a legal settlement with her family. The agreement also required the city to implement policy changes, including a mandate for police commanders to approve all search warrants in spite of the fact that the officers did everything by the book except one officer had to fire in defense from an angle that endangered an adjacent apartment.

Worse, we have a Marxist media (outside of Tucker Carlson and a few) who have withheld the facts and lied about the situation because they, or the owners of these paid propaganda outlets, want to create race riots to divide America. Divide and conquer. Rebuild, not from the bottom (people) up (elected officials), but from the top (authoritarians), down (slaves). Officials in Kentucky allowed months of false claims to be made surrounding the shooting without correcting the media reporting.

As with the Trayvon Martin case…. and as with the Michael Brown case….. and as with the Freddie Gray case…. everything pushed by the media about the Breonna Taylor case was based on lies.  The media will now refuse to admit the truth and will now spin the narrative to claim they never reported incorrectly.  Absolutely ridiculous.

Violent protests erupted in Louisville, Kentucky in the wake of grand jury’s ruling. Officers in Louisville declared the protests as an unlawful assembly stating, “There will be officers here until you fully disperse. If you do not do so, we will release chemical agents and you may get arrested.

As objects continued to be thrown, someone shouted, “Get em’! Fu*k em’ up!” Rioters took little time to begin targeting local businesses in Louisville. Rioters were seen knocking over umbrellas, chairs and tables over at a local business. During that time someone yelled, “No, no, no, no, don’t vandalize it! No!”

The Louisville police conducted nearly 100 arrests overnight as protests engulfed the city. According to a police statement cited by AP, protesters attempted to wreak havoc in the city, loot local businesses and jump on city vehicles. Several protesters were arrested for curfew violations after refusing orders to disperse, the statement adds. Linda Sarsour was one of the riot organizers.

The police also said that the lives of the two officers shot during the demonstration were not threatened. The BLM violent rioter was arrested the following day. Reuters responded to news of cops being shot by claiming the Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots were “mostly peaceful” protests until gunshots “rang out” in the midst of a “skirmish” between “protesters” and “heavily armed police.” One could read such a line and assume it was “heavily armed police” who attacked and shot “peaceful” protesters which would be untrue.

National File reported that an employee of the Bail Project, Holly Zoller, was caught handing out shields and other equipment to potential rioters from a U-Haul truck in Louisville just prior to the announcement to not prosecute the officers for murder.

The organisation that Zoller works for, the Bail Project, opposes cash bail, and claims that paying bail for those in jail is an “act of resistance against a system that criminalizes race and poverty.” The Bail Project has been funded by the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey. In June, Dorsey’s #startsmall intiative teamed up with Rihanna’s Clara Lionel Foundation, to donate $11 million to organisations that “advance racial equity, with a focus on criminal justice and policing reform.” The Bail Project was a recipient of these funds, along with Black Lives Matter.

Intelwave, the account that exposed Zoller initially, was temporarily suspended from Twitter for identifying her, with Twitter determining one of his tweets violated their rules on “posting private information.”

National File also noted that the group has ties to George Soros:

The Bail Project also has ties to George Soros, the founder of the Open Society Foundation. At least two employees of the Bail Project are or were “Soros Justice Fellows.” According to the Open Society Foundation’s website, “the Soros Justice Fellowships fund outstanding individuals to undertake projects that advance reform, spur debate, and catalyze change on a range of issues facing the U.S. criminal justice system.”

Riots also broke out in other major cities that have experienced continued protests. A building started to burn in Portland and a police headquarters entrance was on fire in St. Louis. In Denver, a crowd of rioters swarmed around a car yelling ‘get this mot*erfu*ker out of here!’ and things started to escalate as someone kicked the side of the car and the people inside drive off. A Black police officer was confronted by 2 masked protested in Los Angeles who were pointing in the officers face and taunting him. Calling him a ‘bit*h’ as well as stating, “You nervous, ni**a? You a bit*h!”

3 Mothers, 6 Children Slaughtered in Mormon Settlement in Mexico Near Border

A deadly massacre in Mexico of three mothers and six children with Utah ties sparked strong reactions nationwide Tuesday, including from President Donald Trump, who said the U.S. is ready to wage war on drug cartels.

The women and children — including 8-month-old twins — were murdered in ambush attacks about 5 miles outside of La Mora, a decades-old settlement in the state of Sonora founded by early members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, about 70 miles south of Douglas, Arizona. At least five additional children were transported to a hospital in Tucson, Arizona, for treatment, according to Mexican Security Secretary Alfonso Durazo.

In addition to the nine who were killed, family members said six other children were wounded — including a 9-year-old girl who was shot in the arm and found hours later — and two who escaped unharmed, including a 7-month-old girl who was found still in her car seat in one of the vehicles that was riddled with bullet holes.

Durazo said the gunmen may have mistaken the group’s large SUVs for rival gangs, something relatives of the victims have also said in social media posts.

Trump said on Twitter that the United States stands ready to battle the drug cartels with Mexico.

“A wonderful family and friends from Utah got caught between two vicious drug cartels, who were shooting at each other, with the result being many great American people killed, including young children, and some missing. If Mexico needs or requests help in cleaning out these monsters, the United States stands ready, willing & able to get involved and do the job quickly and effectively. The great new President of Mexico has made this a big issue, but the cartels have become so large and powerful that you sometimes need an army to defeat an army!” the president said in a series of tweets.

Mexico President Andrés Manuel López Obrador declined Trump’s offer on Tuesday, saying during a news conference, “The worst thing you can have is war.”

”We declared war, and it didn’t work,” López Obrador said, referring to the policies of previous administrations. “That is not an option.”

A relative living in Herriman, Taylor Langford, described the victims as members of a “fundamentalist” group that practices polygamy. Langford, who grew up in the Mexico community and now lives in Utah, said his family has had roots in La Mora for generations and traveled the same road countless times without issue.

Jhon LeBaron posted an account of the tragedy from his cousin, Kendra Miller, on his Facebook page.

Three women and 14 children were traveling in a caravan of three vehicles in the mountains between the Mexican states of Sonora and Chihuahua. Many of the family members were born in Mexico and have dual citizenship.

Two of the vehicles were headed to Chihuahua to see family members while the third was driven by Rhonita Miller, who was going to Phoenix to pick up her husband at the airport, according to Langford and Kendra Miller’s lengthy social media post.

Rhonita Miller was killed and burned, along with her four children, including twin babies.

“They were ambushed by the Mexican cartels; shot, burned, and murdered in cold blood,” Kendra Miller said.

While authorities had not confirmed Tuesday who was responsible for the attack, Durazo said the families were “ambushed” starting about 1 p.m. Monday by an “armed group.”

Family members have identified the deceased as Rhonita Maria Miller, 30; Howard Jacob Miller Jr., 12; Krystal Bellaine Miller, 10; and 8-month-old twins Titus Alvin Miller and Tiana Gricel Miller.

“It was awful seeing the babies’ little skulls just sitting there on the floor of the car burnt and broken,” Kendra Miller told NBC News.

Langford said the other two cars, which had been about 10 miles down the road, were attacked next. One of the women was shot after jumping out of her SUV “waving her arms to let the attackers know that it was women and children in the vehicles,” according to the Miller post.

Christina Marie Langford Johnson, 29, had her baby in her car; Dawna Ray Langford, 43, had nine children in hers. Both mothers were killed. Trevor Harvey Langford, 11; and Rogan Jay Langford, 2; were also shot to death, according to the family.

Amazingly, 7-month-old Faith Marie Johnson was found alive and uninjured in the vehicle riddled with bullet holes, still sitting in her car seat, the post states. Family members believe her mother put her on the floor to protect her while being fired upon.

Devin Blake Langford, who is 13, “hid his six other siblings in the bushes and covered them with branches to keep them safe” while he walked 14 miles back to La Mora to get help, according to the family.

“Devin’s uncles armed themselves with guns and returned to try and find the hidden children, knowing many of them were injured. They didn’t get far before realizing they would be risking death, since there had been continual shooting for hours, all over the mountains near La Mora. The group of men waited a while for reinforcements, and around 7:30, found the hidden children,” according to the post.

Kendra Miller wrote about the conditions of the other children: Mckenzie Rayne Langford, 9, was found after a four-hour search with a grazing bullet wound to her arm; Kylie Evelyn Langford, 14, was shot in the foot; Cody Greyson Langford, 8, was shot in the jaw and the leg; Jake Ryder Langford, 6, was not injured; Xander Boe Langford, 4, was shot in the back; Brixon Oliver Langford, 9 months, was “shot in the chest, open flesh wound, bullet graze on wrist.”

By 5 p.m., members of the Mexican militia and National Guard were positioning themselves in the region, Durazo stated, with patrols starting by 6:30 p.m. By 7:20 p.m. the attorney general of Chihuahua sent troops to Janos, Chihuahua, and government officials began an official search effort by 8:30 p.m, according to Durazo.

The Mexican military assisted in transporting the wounded children by helicopter to the Tucson hospital Monday night. Five siblings remained hospitalized late Tuesday. Relative Aaron Staddon, of Queen Creek, Arizona, said they were all in stable condition and recovering, but the child who was shot in the jaw will need extensive plastic surgery.

He said the family expects the children will be transported to a Phoenix facility Wednesday.

Austin Cloes, who lives in Herriman, says his extended family members who were killed loved their children and enjoyed quiet lives based around a successful pecan farming operation.

Cloes said Tuesday that he saw all the victims at a family reunion in Mexico last summer. He knew his cousin Dawna Ray Langford best, calling her a loving and caring woman who took pride in her children.

“There’s obviously no words to describe the pain of the situation that everyone is feeling. Everyone is shocked and scared to go home for funerals and wondering what to do. It’s honestly really chaotic right now,” said Emily Langford, who lost her mother, Dawna Langford, and two brothers, Trevor and Rogan.

Trish Cloes, an aunt to Dawna Langford, who also lives in Herriman, said the family has nothing to do with the drug cartels. She described the victims as simple farmers who stick to themselves and never look for any trouble.

“How is it even possible that a needless act like this happens, a needless murder? These women and children were slaughtered. The families are devastated and we’re all just coming together,” she said.

Utah Gov. Gary Hebert tweeted, “Devastated to hear of the cold-blooded attacks in Mexico. I am heartsick for the victims and their families. Together, we must find a way to end the callous and cruel violence cartels inflict on innocent victims.”

“We are heartbroken to hear of the tragedy that has touched these families in Mexico,” Eric Hawkins, a spokesman for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said in a statement. “Though it is our understanding that they are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, our love, prayers and sympathies are with them as they mourn and remember their loved ones.”

Christopher James Blythe, religion scholar at BYU’s Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship, has studied the interwoven history of different religious groups in the northern Mexico area.

”This is a group of independent Mormon fundamentalists so they don’t label themselves as a specific denomination of Mormon fundamentalism,” Blythe said, including the well-known Fundamentalist LDS Church or the Church of the Firstborn of the Fulness of Times, which established Colonia LeBaron.

A sizable community of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which has been in northern Mexico for generations but is not affiliated with any of the offshoot sects, also remains in the area today, according to Blythe.

The U.S. State Department said Tuesday it was aware of the situation in Mexico.

“The safety and welfare of U.S. citizens abroad is among the Department of State’s top priorities. When a U.S. citizen is missing or passes away overseas, we engage with local officials at multiple levels and provide all appropriate consular assistance.”

Christopher Landau, the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, tweeted Tuesday in Spanish, “The safety of our fellow citizens is our top priority. I’m very closely following the situation between Sonora and Chihuahua.”

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, also commented about the killings, saying on Twitter: “Deeply saddened by the horrific news out of Mexico this morning. Our prayers are with the families of the victims of this senseless tragedy and I hope the Mexican government will work with us to bring the killers to justice.”

Rep. Ben McAdams, D-Utah, said in a statement: “It’s outrageous that mothers and children cannot drive in the area without being gunned down by these violent criminals. I learned from my recent visit with Republicans and Democrats to border facilities in McAllen, Texas that the drug cartels operate with near impunity and are a threat to the safety of U.S. and Mexican citizens, to asylum-seekers from Central America, and to our border security. My deepest sympathies go to the family members and friends of the shooting victims.”

Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes tweeted, “The violent murders of nine Americans in Mexico — including six children — are nothing less than horrific and despicable. Our hearts go out to the families and loved ones and our office pledges to continue fighting against the addictive and deadly drugs that drive the cartels.”

GoFundMe campaign was started by family members to help raise money for medical and funeral expenses.

Offshoot sects of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the region have been the targets of extortion attempts and victims of violence in the past. In 2009, Benjamin LeBaron, 31, was shot and killed after denouncing cartel members who had kidnapped his brother and demanded $1 million, which he refused to pay.

In this incident, however, there could be serious consequences to believing the wrong thing. There are many other American-Mexican Mormons living in the area, part of a community that has been growing in the area since the 1940s. And apparently almost none of them believe the government’s theory that the attack was an accident.

“It was no accident. It was deliberate,” said Loretta Miller, 53, the mother-in-law of the victim Rhonita Miller and grandmother of her four dead children. “We just don’t know why our family was targeted.” – Wall Street Journal

The victims, who were buried on Thursday, included three women and six children, some newborn babies. They were traveling in a caravan of three vans when suspected cartel gunmen rained down a hail of gunfire.

Eight other children survived the attacks, many with serious gunshot wounds.

100s of community members attended the service for one of the murdered mothers and her two young sons, forming a long line at the funeral parlor in the mountains of Mexico’s Sonora state. The eulogies for Dawna Ray Langford caused many the audience to tear up.

The Wall Street Journal reports –

Many hugged each other tightly. Sons, a daughter, her parents and other relatives, many in tears, eulogized Ms. Langford, who had 13 children and two grandchildren. “She never once made a selfish decision,” said Crystal Langford, her daughter, in tears. “It was always for her kids and her family.”

“She was a fighter,” said Karen Woolley, her mother, as she remembered the day she gave birth to Ms. Langford.

Services for another six victims – four children and two mothers – were being held here, but their remains will be taken back for burial at Colonia LeBarón, a community formed decades ago by a dissident faction of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Services for the other six victims will be held during the coming days. Some of the speakers, particularly relatives of the deceased, angrily called on all Mexicans to resist the cartels.

Members of the community lived peacefully alongside the cartel for years, passing through cartel checkpoints has become a fact of life for many. But some of the children who survived the massacre described how Christina Marie Langford, one of the three mothers killed, jumped out of the car with her hands up, but was shot down anyway.

Whatever happened that day, many of the residents of La Mora and Colonia LaBaron, the villages where the community lives, are contemplating moving back to the US.

FBI Busts Massive Fentanyl Ring Running Out of Dept of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs in D.C.

(ActivistPost) Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided a government agency last week to execute a search warrant looking for evidence of a fentanyl drug ring. During the raid on the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, FBI agents found the fentanyl they were looking for and discovered a massive heroin and fentanyl ring being run out of the government building just a few feet from an elementary school.

According to investigators, undercover agents caught Darrell Marcellus Pope operating the massive drug ring in which thousands of dollars of fentanyl and heroin were being sold. The FBI reported that the drug ring stretched over multiple states from Woodbridge, Virginia, to D.C. to Pope’s Clinton, Maryland, home.

According to court documents, “Pope was observed outside his office building on foot and walking up to meet” the undercover officer. On multiple occasions Pope sold the detective varying amounts of fentanyl or heroin and fentanyl—some transactions were for as little as two grams, and one was for as much as 30 grams, the affidavit says.

As NBC4 reports:

The operation employed drivers who regularly drove people from Prince William County to D.C. so they could buy drugs from Pope, according to court documents. The drugs were sold at $100 per gram. In at least one sale, Pope was seen with a Glock 9mm pistol.

FBI agents found an ounce of the deadly drugs at Pope’s home and also found fentanyl at his workspace inside DCRA headquarters, where Pope was arrested. When he was taken into custody, Pope had 30 grams of fentanyl on him, according to court documents.

Although fentanyl was discovered in locations inside the agency at which other employees had access, the FBI announced that they did not think the entire agency was behind the ring.

“Yesterday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Washington Field Office executed a search warrant related to an ongoing investigation,” Deputy Mayor for Operations and Infrastructure Lucinda Babers told DCist in an email statement. “The search was executed at the employee’s work station at the District’s Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs. The employee was placed on administrative leave today. The search warrant is not related to any agency operations.”

The idea that the FBI discovered a drug ring operating out of the DCRA is incredibly ironic given the agency’s mission of “protecting the health and safety of residents.” However, it should not be surprising. Government agents are often times the largest offenders in the State’s war on drugs.

As TFTP reported last year, a New York Police Department officer was arrested after she was caught running a massive cross-country heroin trafficking ring, all while using her badge as a cover to keep police away from the operations.

The Drug Enforcement Administration began investigating NYPD Officer Yessenia Jimenez, 31, in January 2018 after they found the phone number of her boyfriend, Luis Soto, 33, on the cell phone of a narcotics trafficking suspect.

The investigation concluded that Jimenez and Soto were conducting a heroin trafficking operation that stemmed Mexico to New York. The New York Daily News reported that the pair was arrested after they made a trip to Massachusetts to meet with a heroin trafficker.

Before that, a massive raid was carried out by the FBI of the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Hammond Police Department. The raids were part of a year-long investigation into a U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency task force accused of a massive conspiracy to rob drug dealers and profit from selling the stolen narcotics. Two entire police departments were shut down after they were implicated in a multi-state drug ring.

As the Free Thought Project reported before that, a California police officer was busted after driving 247 pounds of marijuana all the way across the country. Yuba County Deputy Christopher M. Heath was caught in York, Pennsylvania with a shipment of marijuana that was worth over $2 million.

These people were responsible for putting nonviolent people in prison for using and selling drugs. Meanwhile, they were all selling drugs and taking part in the same actions for which they advocated locking people up. State hypocrisy at its finest.

China Caught Shipping Enough Fentanyl To Kill More than 10 Billion People

Mexican government authorities reported a seizure of approximately 25.75 tons of powdered fentanyl in the port city of Lázaro Cárdenas, in the western Mexican state of Michoacán — and it came from China.

The Secretariat of the Navy of Mexico intercepted the fentanyl shipment which originated from Shanghai, China and was bound for the Sinaloa Cartel home base of Culiacán, Sinaloa, as reported by local media outlet Tobasco Hoy on Saturday.

Investigators discovered the fentanyl aboard a Danish vessel in a cargo container whose manifest indicated a shipment of calcium chloride.

When the Mexican Customs laboratory tested a sample of the contents, investigators found the powdered substance tested positive for fentanyl. The customs investigators went on to seize 931 sacks of the same substance, amounting to a weight of 23,368 kilograms (about 25.75 tons). Initial reports on the total weight of seizure are still only an estimate as authorities are still determining the total amount of captured fentanyl powder.

The seizure was the result of joint efforts by the Secretariat of the Navy of Mexico and customs enforcement members from Lázaro Cárdenas.

The most recent seizure comes just days after the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration announced a cumulative seizure of over a million illicitly created fentanyl pills, by the DEA’s Phoenix Field Office and various Arizona law enforcement agencies over the course of the 2019 fiscal year. The 1,138,288 pills are nearly triple the 380,000 fentanyl pill seizures estimated in fiscal year 2018. The high yield of captured fentanyl is an even further increase over just 20,000 fentanyl pills seized within the state of Arizona in the 2016 fiscal year.

Breitbart News’ Texas news bureau reported the dismantling of a Sinoloa Cartel lab fentanyl pill lab in Northwest Culiacán, Sinaloa last week. Some 2,500 fentanyl pills were discovered at the lab and authorities seized a pill press used to make “M-30s” or “Mexican Oxy” derived from the powdered fentanyl.

Investigators also determined the lab to be a training site for other cartel drug manufacturers. Breitbart reports that fentanyl has become a favored drug of production, lucrative to the Sinoloa Cartel due to its easy production and accessible trafficking routes across the Mexican border into the U.S.

In April, Mexican media outlet Excelsior reported significant fentanyl seizures related to the Sinoloa Cartel and discovered an active Sinoloa Cartel fentanyl lab, seizing 33,000 pills and 25 pounds of powdered fentanyl in the process. Mexican government authorities at the time also found 13 pounds of heroin and chemical precursors at the cartel lab.

Fentanyl has been determined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention to be between 50 and 100 times more potent than morphine and has been a major contributor to opioid deaths in the United States.

Feds announce seizure of enough fentanyl to kill 14 million people, 35 arrested

A multistate investigation involving more than two dozen law enforcement agencies led to the seizure of enough fentanyl to kill more than 14 million people from a drug trafficking ring operating out of Virginia, federal prosecutors announced Thursday.
During the raids, dubbed “Operation Cookout,” officials seized 30 kilograms each of fentanyl and heroin, 5 kilograms of cocaine, 24 firearms, and over $700,000 in cash.
The more than 30 agencies involved worked three days to arrest 35 of 39 defendants in Virginia, North Carolina and Texas for their alleged roles in the distribution operation based in Hampton Roads, according to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia.
G. Zachary Terwilliger, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District, said that amount of fentanyl alone is enough to kill 14 million people.
“This operation, through its seizure of scores of kilograms of illicit narcotics, saved lives in the Eastern District and elsewhere,” Terwilliger said.
A 106-count indictment, unsealed Thursday, charges the defendants with conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute cocaine, heroin, cocaine base, and fentanyl; conspiracy to launder money; felon in possession of a firearm; maintaining a drug-involved premises; use of a communication facility in furtherance of drug trafficking; interstate travel in aid of racketeering enterprises; and illegal re-entry by a previously deported or removed alien.
The drug trafficking conspiracy began in 2016, according to the indictment. The defendants are accused of buying the drugs from Mexico, California and New York then moving them around Virginia using “hidden traps” in various vehicles, according to prosecutors. They carried out and planned for drug deals in various locations throughout Hampton Roads, including houses, parking lots and businesses.
