Should have Called ICE Before You Let This Guy Out.

A 20 time deported felon sat in the Multnomah County, OR, (think Portland) detention facility.  This jerk had a number of felony convictions, not only from OR but from TX and CA.  The usual crapola, drugs, vehicle theft, burglary and domestic abuse.  He is an admitted meth abuser and uses daily.  Hey, no biggie says the Sheriff.Sergio_Jose_Martinez_31

ICE had a detainer on his funky butt.  All the Sheriff had to do was notify ICE that he had served his time on the state charge and would be released on a specific date.  Just notify them, not hold him beyond his release date.  Phone, e-mail, smoke signals, carrier pigeon..anything.  Hell, if I can send an e-mail surely someone in the Sheriff’s office can.  But Noooo, we can’t do that says the Sheriff.

OK, so this guy gets kicked loose and he goes on to do great things to the benefit of humanity. Wrong.

What he does is smoke a quantity of meth and kidnap and sexually assault two women.  One being a 64 year old grandmother.

Oh, he’s back in custody and facing some extremely serious charges.  Did it have to come to this.  No.  All the Sheriff had to do was contact ICE and let them know he’s due for release.  This would have made the area a bit safer…sure enough for the two victims.

After all it’s the Sheriff’s job to make the citizens safe from this kind of animal.

in this case the Sheriff flunked.  Let’s get back to PROTECT and SERVE…everyone, not just the illegal felons.
