Operation Safe Streets

On March 7th, Macon County Sheriff's Deputies were joined by detention officers, detectives, patrol officers, tactical officers, K-9 units, I.C.E. Agents and officers from the North Carolina Probation and Parole Office in Operation Safe Streets.
The one day surge in law enforcement action netted 21 arrests, 8 of them for immigration charges. The suspects arrested on immigration charges have since been transported to Charlotte for deportation hearings.
Charges ranged from no operator license and DUI to 1st degree rape of a child and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Phase I netted 17 arrests on January 11th. There was no word about when Phase III might occur.

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
