Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

The first rule for potential fugitives

Never hide at a family member's or girlfriend/boyfriend's home. From the Bradenton Herald-

Authorities with the Manatee County Sheriff's Office arrested a fugitive reputed gang member Monday at his girlfriend's home.

"Pistol" Pete Garcia has been on the run since earlier this year from racketeering and drug-related charges. Garcia's girlfriend told authorities he returned to Manatee County on Sunday. He was arrested at her home in the 4500 block of 11th Street Circle West, according to authorities.

On Feb. 7, 2006, Garcia was arrested with Jose Lois Rodriguez. Both were charged with trafficking more than 400 grams of cocaine. Rodriguez pleaded guilty to the drug charge and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Garcia, 23, was set for sentencing March 6. On Jan. 18 of this year, his supervised release was revoked, according to court records.

Garcia is also one of nine reputed gang members who face racketeering charges. If convicted of conspiracy to commit racketeering, he faces 4 to 30 years in prison, prosecutors said.

'Pistol' must not be too loaded when it comes to brains. He can take some remedial fugitive living classes when and if he is a free man again.
