Attorney General Gary King is cracking down on the seething, Mafioso cesspool in New Mexico by taking a trip to Italy next week. Granted, King has been working with law enforcement officials from Mexico as of late to combat crime that is trickling over the border, yet is it really necessary to go all the way to Italy to learn about ways to combat organized crime? I figure he would do just as well going to Jersey and hitting up Tony Soprano and Paulie Walnuts for that info, so he could come back and spend more time in New Mexico.
I’d also figure the Attorney General would want to experience the entire week-long conference, seeing how much he wants to learn about fighting organized crime, instead of the mere three days he plans on attending (here and here). For anyone who’s attended long conferences like these, you know the first few days are mostly full of jet lag, intros, and mixers anyways.
And it’s obvious that other border states are just as interested in learning about Italy’s infamous crime fighting ways as the other state AG’s who are attending are from Idaho and North Dakota. It definitely makes me wonder why AGs from border states California, Arizona, and Texas decided not to attend. Perhaps they figured out that they could get the same information from an upcoming and very similar conference being held by California’s Attorney General. Or shoot, why not even take the two-hour flight to, I don’t know, how about Mexico, to learn about border crime.
