Students Working Toward Homeland Security and Criminal Justice Degrees Dabble In Dirty Deeds

Even though only a few of the students that were arrested in connection with a major drug bust at San Diego State University were majoring in criminal justice and homeland security, the fact that any of the drug dealers had such majors is interesting. Well I guess they were doing some research on the criminal element….

So the university and the DEA launched a sting effort called Sudden Fall. They re able to recover 50 pounds of marijuana, four pounds of coke, 360 ecstasy pills and a few guns. Of the 100 or so people that were arrested in Sudden Fall 75 of them were students.

An investigation was spurred after an overdose death last year at a fraternity house. It seems that the frat brothers had a special kind of brotherhood that included dealing drugs. One drug dealer was going to have his Master’s degree in a month in Homeland Security. Another drug dealer was dealing coke and working for campus police. The story just gets worse as it goes along. Student who are suppose to be going to school to learn how to enforce laws are dealing drugs. Not that law enforcement officials are always honesty and loyal to what they believe in but I would like to believe that crooked law enforcement agents do not start off that way. However, the notion to study fields that deal with criminals probably appeals to those that are headed for criminology and those sworn to uphold it.

I am not a big fan of fraternity and sororities because they tend to lean towards the follow the leader policy. Not only that, they are all about who is “cool” and who is not. Personally, I like to make friends naturally, not pay for them and perform silly acts to get into their club. Anyhow, that little rant leads me back to the drug dealing that these fraternities were doing. So, how did it began? Did the president, or whatever the leader guy of the frat is called decided one day that they were going to sell drugs? Did the subjects follow and fall in line with their leader and dispense poison to fellow students? When the first overdose occurred last year did they blame it on the person the overdosed? I know it may seem like being in a fraternity has nothing to do with the drug dealing but most fraternities are similar to gangs or clubs that have no direction. Drug dealing could have worked to fill the time of bored, privileged young men.

It will be interesting to see what type of punishment these young men get for their drug distribution around San Diego State University. It seems that these entrepreneurs were offering a sale on cocaine that they were stupid enough to send out a text message about it. It amazes me that people have not come to realize that you need to find a better way to transmit your sinister deeds than text messages or the Internet. Don’t people know that when they get caught these electronic messages can be used to prove them guilty?
