Phoenix Police Officer Daryl Raetz's Body Circled by Nativist Buzzards

The anti-immigrant crowd salivates at tragedies like the killing of PPD Officer Daryl Raetz

The nativists are a parasitic lot. They gloat when someone is murdered by an "illegal immigrant," or any kind of immigrant, actually.

In the Boston bombings, they made a feast of the two brothers, the alleged terrorists: one a naturalized U.S. citizen, the other granted asylum.

Suddenly, the brothers Tsarnaev became Chechen-born poster boys for those opposed to comprehensive immigration reform, the reason why the 11 million to 12 million who pass background checks, pay a fine, and jump through 13 years of hoops to become citizens under the Gang of Eight's plan should be sent packing instead.

Now, there's the suggestion that the person who may have been driving that green SUV that hit and killed Phoenix Police Officer Daryl Raetz might be in the country illegally.

We don't know for certain, yet. We may know soon. The owner of the vehicle, Jesus Molina, has been arrested on unrelated charges.

For the haters, it's time to get the lynch mob fired up. They can't get to Molina, but rhetorically, at least, they'll lynch all of the undocumented and likely throw in all other recent arrivals -- as well as all Hispanics -- while they're at it.

Is it okay to blame an entire class of persons for what a few have done? The myth of illegal immigrants spiking the crime rate helped kill immigration reform in 2007. And it helped pass Senate Bill 1070, Arizona's ethnic-cleaning legislation.

It might work again. It's one of the oldest tools of propaganda and control, used to inspire pogroms, whip up hatred, play on ancient fears.

The "logic" involved is that of a child's. All of the undocumented bear the sins of one or a handful. The fear has often been more general, a fear of foreigners, a fear of anything not like oneself.

What about this murderess Jodi Arias, proof positive that all who hail from Salinas, California, are maniacs? If she had just stayed put, Travis Alexander still would be alive.

Or John Walker Lindh, the "American Taliban." Baptized a Catholic, I hear. Well, that explains everything, doesn't it?

All of your great serial killers -- for the most part -- all white dudes. Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, BTK.

Those ofays have a monopoly on crazy; e.g., Jim Jones, David Koresh, Marshall Applewhite, and so on. Mass murder? With Joseph Stalin and that swastika guy on the History Channel in the Caucasian camp, other races and ethnicities don't stand a freaking chance.

White people, they're evil.

It comes to my attention that no results from an INVESTIGATION -if there's any at all- has been made public, yet everybody are already comming to conclusions. What if the Officer was at fault, like beign in the midddle of the street where He could've been unseen due to poor light conditions...nothing, no details about how it happened. Not knowing if the individual who was driving the car is an "illegal" I wouldn't get to conclusions. I think that's the proper way to go about.

And don't take me wrong, it's a real tragedy that officer Raetz was killed, RIP.

Ancedotal evidence is still evidence.  Stephen, you use individual stories that support your agenda as headlines almost every day, in order to make your argument. 

What's good for the goose...

It's tragic that this Officer was killed.  It's infuriating that the person who killed him had no business even being behind the wheel of the vehicle he used to execute the Officer with.  This suspect is the perfect example of failed immigration policies.  He is a convicted criminal and illegal alien who REMAINED on US soil because our Government FAILED to have him removed. 

You are an open borders advocate.  You own this.  Wear it proudly.  Tell us, stephen, how this guy deserves to be here, and how his previous brushes with the law indicate he is a victim of circumstance, and it's our fault he isn't a productive member of society.

Hmmmm.  The "anti-immigrant crowd."   Oh, wait.  You judiciously left out one key word, as liberals always do:  ILLEGAL.  This tendency is yet one more strong indication that "progressivism" indeed is a brain disease.  How else to explain how liberals literally to a man or woman will drop the word ILLEGAL from all references to, well, ILLEGAL immigrants.  Is there a doctor in the house?

And the person who wrote this has politically biased

Motivations towards just letting people with documentation no record to pull so police can see if they are a threat or not just run wild . Yes there a lot of good

People who deserve to be here but this story shows that

It's not that simple there are a lot of people who should not be here as well RIP officer Raetz

Yeah this a hole who wrote this is very out of touch And is biased towards just letting undocumented people's Trample all over phx not everyone is a criminal who is undocumented but it seems eeryte we have something like this happen I hear undocumented immigrant . I'm tired of these crimes continuing in our city and the lack of response to the root cause of these crimes . I want our political leaders to stop worrying about voter demographics and do something about this . I used to love this city but now I'm just plain concerned RIP officer Raetz

Dear Stephen Douchebag Lemons: It is the fact that these violent crimes are very preventable. This dirty scumbag was arrested 3 times. He had cocaine on him when he was arrested this time. That officer would still be alive today if this country didn't take such a PUSSY liberal approach to dealing with illegal immigrants. No other country does this shit. Liberals want them here at any cost - because they think they will vote for corrupt Democratic administration after corrupt administration.

I think they should give this guy US Citizenship since he is an outstanding law abiding catholic.  This guy loves Jesus and he loves the US.  We need more of these types of stand up people in our communities, they make this country so much stronger.

wtf...

Of course everyone gets a pass when you're white, you can mass murder children in schools, political events, movie theaters, government buildings, churches etc etc etc.. and nobody points fingers at those of white descendants ... great article.

I hope everyone is paying attention to the current US Senate mark-ups of the pending immigration "reform"legislation. This is classic neo-liberalism. peace

Thank you Mr. Lemons, for once again writing an excellent and very enlightening article on the racists who keep calling themselves by other names (Tea Baggers) so as to try and fool people by doing what they're doing here in our beautiful state of Arizona ! We're not going to let them take over our state without a non-violent fight anymore ! They had their bigoted reign of power now..it's time to learn about Karma.

Sad but true how can this message or the concept of dealing with our problems in this country be listened to it Can not be heard or acknowledged unless first our leaders and legislators guide this nation in a direction that is clear straight forward and adapts and progresses with changing times . Until then voices will be faint whispers falling upon deaf ears.

@leonardclark You won't allow all of those dangerous, evil conservatives take over this state... but you'll let killers, rapists and drug smugglers from Mexico take over the state. Sounds reasonable.

@swmkm @leonardclark Your absolutely right swm, Compared to the type of conservative which currently infest Arizona, the latter group is a better class of people. At least the immigrant criminals don't wear badges.
