The once rising star in the GOP, OC Sheriff Mike Carona has been indicted on conspiracy charges involving schemes to enrich his family and mistress. Often readers of this blog assert that America is a nation of laws, especially when attacking illegal immigrants. But it is kind of difficult to argue for law and order when those who are supposed to enforce it so blatantly break it. Recently, Carona was praised for his efforts to combat illegal immigration by Congressman Dana Rohrabacher. As I have expressed before, most people would probably state that they don’t like illegal immigration. However, doesn’t it become more difficult to argue that we are a nation of laws when our own law enforcement cannot be held to the standards that they are supposed to uphold and enforce? What kind of example is this for any resident illegal or otherwise?
