Subject: [actionla] outrage in cochise country!
please take action below!
Not only has the vigilante, white-supremacist group, American
Border Patrol set up shop with a 501(c)3 non-profit tax status
in my home county of Cochise, but some Cochise County sheriff
deputies DROVE THE BODY OF A DEAD MIGRANT WOMAN TO THEIR OFFICE
TIED TO THE HOOD OF THEIR SUV two weeks ago! When I called and
spoke with Carol, the Public Relations person at the office,
she confirmed that the officers, who had hiked in to retrieve
the body, had chosen to put the body on the hood "in hopes
that they would see contacts from the local morgue at some
point". They didn't, and so according to Carol, the body
stayed there until the morgue workers picked it up.
Carol seemed unsure why I or anyone else would think it undignified and
disrespectful to do this. Rather than speak on behalf of those
of you who do feel this way, I would like to encourage you
to take action on your own.
Please let the sherrif's office know that you are outraged at
this action and any other action that does not fully respect
the dignity and human rights of all people!
Call them at:
Cochise County Sherrif
520/432-9500 (a non-emergency number, although many of us can't figure how it could be any more of an emergency!)

actions, please contact South West Alliance to Resist Millitarization
