Deputies Beheaded Near the Border in San Diego County, California-Fiction!
Summary of the eRumor: The forwarded email says there
is a media cover-up of the decapitation of three Sheriff's deputies in
San Diego County, California. The facts came to light during
testimony at a Congressional hearing on Border Vulnerability.
The Truth: This eRumor is a forward of an
article written by Rodney Stubbs on NewsWithViews.com. He says
there is a media cover-up of the decapitation of three Sheriff's
deputies in San Diego County. He references a video of a
congressional hearing in which Congressman William Bilbray questioned
San Diego Sheriff William Kolender about the killings. Bilbray
asks "Do you want to break the news about three law enforcement
officers concerning an incident that took place about two miles from
this location in the last couple of weeks?. Kolender says
"They were killed." Bilbray follows up with, "They
were not only killed, they were decapitated, weren't they?"
Kolender replies with a "Yes."
We've not found any evidence of the
deaths or decapitation of Sheriff's deputies in San Diego County.
On Wednesday, July 5, 2006 a hearing
was held at a Border Patrol station within sight of the Mexican
border. It was led by Republican Rep. Ed Royce from California,
who is chairman of the subcommittee on international terrorism and
Three Mexican policemen were found decapitated in June, 2006 in Rosarito
Beach, about 30 miles from where the hearings were taking place.
The heads of the victims were found in Tijuana, Mexico, which was about
2 miles from where the hearings were being held and is probably what was
referenced in the remarks by Rep. Bilbray. Mexican Attorney
General Daniel Cabeza de Vaca said the beheadings were being
investigated as acts of organized crime, not terrorism.
A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
MEDIA COVER-UP BLOCKS MAJOR NEWS STORY OF 2006
March 18, 2006
Normally, watching CSPAN you will often come across
tidbits of good information. Through their search engines, it is
possible to review the hearings especially those programs involving
hearings conducted by the United States Congress. On July 5, 2006, a
hearing at the border guard station in San Diego, California caught my
attention. Several prominent Republicans and Democrats were on the panel
concerning Border Vulnerability. They were interview panels of selected
individuals including a panel of county Sheriffs who are responsible for
controlling aliens once they cross the border.
