Operation Perfect Storm ?

It's odd that a recent story concerning the selling of drugs and guns by members of some in our military even made the national news.

I grew up in Southern California - and at the time we were surrounded by military bases.
Southern California is the perfect mix for events such as this.
Mexico is just a short drive from most SoCal cities.
Nearby ports are filled with contraband shipments.
Military bases are filled with lonely, underpaid soldiers who may become enticed by the more glamorous entertainment lifestyle common throughout much of Southern California.
The mix of drugs, weapons, money and murder were common in some circles - and those in the military were easy recruits into the underworld lifestyle.
Back in my day, one could procure anything from a slingshot to an RPG - just by knowing the right people.

'Operation Perfect Storm'?.... Pa-lease...
Wait until they discover the network of those in law enforcement doing the same things.

Really? No more Philly? What city?

They bust cops in this area all the time for running and selling drugs. I guess the ones in this area aren't good enough to not get caught. Lol.

What is that saying. "Every man has his price"

How was it that all those people, don't wanna mention names but we all know who, made their millions and rose to power, or rather bought their way to power, during prohibition? By illegally bringing in the liquor.

Every man has his price
