Teen Cyclist Dies in Hit-And-Run, Take a Look at Who Was Driving

Published

One of the most controversial hot-button issues raging in America right now is that of illegal immigration. Liberals, true to form, are totally for allowing folks willy-nilly into the country without a single care of who they are or what they have done in the past.

The problem, of course, is that tons of violent criminals have been leaking into the country as a result of our nation not enforcing its immigration laws, leading to drug problems, welfare fraud, and violent crime running rampant.

A good case in point is the story of a teenager riding his bicycle who was killed in a hit-and-run where an illegal immigrant was behind the wheel. This is becoming a regular occurrence in our country and it’s time to stop tolerating it.

Trending: Biden Comment on Chauvin Trial Stuns Legal Observers

Miguel A. Ibarra Cerda, a 21-year-old Mexican national who was working at a Burrito King in the area, pleaded not guilty to reckless driving causing death and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Cerda, driving a Honda Odyssey minivan, struck 14-year-old Justin Lee as the teen was riding his bicycle. Credo was reportedly driving in excess of speed limits and was on the wrong side of the road when he hit Lee. Witnesses say he sped off immediately after the accident.

Police tracked down and arrested Cerda in Lansing, Michigan, and they believe he was trying to get back to Mexico.

Lee was a student and football player at Walled Lake Western High School. He had dreams of attending University of Michigan to play football and study forensic science.

Is it really all that surprising that Cerda was breaking the speed limit and then ran off, leaving the victim to die in the street? Of course it isn’t. This man didn’t even respect our laws enough not to cross the border illegally. Why would he have any sort of respect for our other laws?

This sort of scenario is becoming more and more common, which is a shame on us as a country, as we have placed the rights of illegals above those of citizens, which simply isn’t right.

This doesn’t mean Americans are anti-immigration. On the contrary, we want folks of every nation and culture to come here and contribute to making America the best country in the world. We just want those folks who desire to be part of our society to respect our laws. That doesn’t seem like a whole lot to ask.

Putin Puffs Out His Chest: Crossing ‘Red Lines’ Will Prompt ‘Asymmetrical’ Response

Putin has been extremely antsy as of late.

Russia

It appears that US President Joe Biden is really getting under the skin of Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin. These leaders of the world two preeminent superpowers have been trading barbs for weeks now, and on a range of subjects.  The latest focus of their fury has to do with the Kremlin’s continued aggression against Ukraine, where Russian military forces are lining just over the border, with “invasion stripes” painted on their vehicles to prevent friendly fire. This is a tacit admission that there will be fire, and Biden isn’t going to stand for it. The US first sent warships in the direction of the Black Sea in an attempt to deter Putin from poking the bear.  The Russian government responded by blocking the entrance to the area and warning that America’s maneuvers were “adversarial”. Biden responded by sanctioning Russia over a major hacking attack that took place months ago. Now, just ahead of what is believed to be an inevitable Russian invasion of Ukraine, Putin is once again puffing out his chest. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his annual State of the Nation speech, warned on Wednesday against provoking his country, promising a swift retaliation against anyone who crossed “red lines.“ Moscow will respond “harshly,” “quickly” and “asymmetrically” to foreign provocations, Putin told an audience of Russia’s top officials and lawmakers, adding that he “hoped” no foreign actor would cross Russia’s “red lines,” according to a Reuters translation. Russia is also facing international condemnation for their treatment of journalist Alexei Navalny, who is believed to be at death’s door at a Russian prison hospital.  Joe Biden has said that Russia would “pay a price” if Navalny were to perish in custody of the government.

DOJ Opens Investigation into Minneapolis Police Department

The investigation will feature the department’s civil rights division.

On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd. Chauvin was seen on video kneeling on the neck of Floyd for nearly 9 minutes as the restrained man slowly suffocated, in a moment that has haunted our nation for a year. Now that Chauvin is off to prison, and a likely, lengthy appeals process, the Department of Justice is now hoping to find out exactly what went wrong in Minneapolis, and whether or not there is some systemic issue with the police department itself. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Wednesday that the Justice Department will be conducting an investigation of law enforcement in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd. The announcement comes one day after a Hennepin County jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second degree murder for killing Floyd. “Yesterday’s verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially systemic policing issues in Minneapolis,” Garland said during a press conference. Garland said the probe will be a “fully comprehensive review” that will look into whether the Minneapolis Police Department has a “pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing.” He specificed that this includes “using excessive force, including during protests,” as well as “discriminatory conduct and whether its treatment of those with behavioral health disabilities is unlawful.” The DOJ will utilize their civil rights division in the investigation, and the Attorney General said that the move could protect “good cops” from their not-so-pristine peers in the precinct. “I strongly believe that good officers do not want to work in systems that allow bad practices,” Garland said. “Good officers welcome accountability because accountability is an essential part of building trust with the community and public safety requires public trust.” Chauvin was moved to prison on Wednesday, and promptly…
