Recruiting Smugglers via Social Media

Nothing much surprises me anymore. This story doesn’t as I’ve seen it on the local news, fairly often in the last year or so. I just cannot believe there are young people, like this story mentionsm as young as 14 not only willing to risk their lives, but when caught (notice I didn’t say “if”) their future is over because, they’ve just become felons for a couple thousand dollars. We’ve all been stupid at one point or another in our lives but this type of risk, nowadays? It ain’t playing cowboys and Indians. These kids are dealing with cartels who don’t give a damn about any outcome as long as they collect their money, first. Using amateurs makes it easy to distract law enforcement from some of their drug smuggling operations. We have limited resources and in reality, they don’t.
