Crackdown on Drug Cartels Underway:  The recent arrests of 23 cartel operatives along the New Mexico and Texas border with Mexico is an indication of things to come regarding border enforcement.  Joseph J. Kolb of Fox News reports that members of the Sinaloa Cartel, once headed by Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, were caught with 64 kilos of meth, 30 kilos of heroin, 20 kilos of pot, and 17 kilos of coke, along with firearms, vehicles, and over $100,000 in cash.  At a press conference announcing the bust, Doña Ana County Sheriff Enrique Vigil said to cartel leaders, "We're going to make sure that you're always looking over your shoulder.  We're going to be knocking on your doors soon--it's just a matter of time."  Vigil reflects the new attitude of border state law enforcement and ICE officers who now believe that the new administration has their back.

Celebrating the LA Riots:  Twenty-five years ago, after a trial jury acquitted four officers of using excessive force on Rodney King, angry blacks set fire to several blocks of Los Angeles, looting and burning businesses and attacking non-blacks.  The Rodney King riots resulted in 50 deaths and destroyed $1 billion in property.  Heather MacDonald has this piece in the City Journal reviewing how academia, the media, and some of the former rioters are marking the anniversary.  One thing we did not know is that UCLA has a Vice Chancellor of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion making over $350,000 a year.
