Online news outlet raises new questions about ‘Pony Trail’ killing

On the

A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent is being investigated on possible corruption charges after running an informant network that has imploded throughout the El Paso law enforcement community, a Mexican law enforcement source in Juárez said this morning.

It’s a mess. Was this ICE agent, the handler for snitches, in fact a snitch himself, one working for the Juárez cartel?

Does ICE really believe that it’s practical, even moral, to run killers as snitches on drug traffickers? It appears the agency does think so, yes. It’s how we’ve ended up with the situational ethics quandary we’re in today.
