After Judge Susan Bolton blocked the most controversial parts of SB 1070, essentially taking out all real power from the bill, a group known as "Freedom for Arizona," committed an act of domestic terrorism by spreading out over 15 tires connected by rope and covered in tar, a banner, brown paint and shards of broken glass across I-19 in Arizona, a busy interstate with a 65 mph speed limit covering approximately 70 miles between Tucson and Nogales.I don't know that I'd call this terrorism, but it's definitely loony. If it weren't so sick it would be funny.
This action not only stopped all traffic flow, but could have killed innocent people in the process.
The goal of the tires, glass and paint was to stop all deportations back to Mexico as well as stopping all capital flow to damage the economy. The banner placed across the interstate read, "Stop All Militarization! The Border is Illegal!"
Wars in the Middle East are the reason for mass emigration from Mexico? Land legally purchased over 150 years ago from Mexico and incorporated into the United States for a century has an illegal border?
These people are not only lunatics, they are - as is usual with this type - indifferent to facts. With luck the perpetrators of this horrific stunt will wind up in jail for reckless endangerment.
