At the San Benito Rotary Club meeting held inside the Municipal Building on Thursday, guest speaker Miles Hutchinson, Supervisory Senior Resident Agent of the Brownsville Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) office, found himself in a familiar position – discussing the violence in Mexico.
Hutchinson gave a presentation on the ongoing drug war, internet hackers, and drug trafficking among other topics. But it was the former that produced a bit of eyebrow-raising.
“Today we talked about the threats that we face here in the Rio Grande Valley, with the principal threats emanating from the drug cartels operating in Mexico,” Hutchinson said Thursday. “Whether it is actual drug trafficking activity itself, or the violent crimes associated with drug trafficking, or the public corruption threat, it’s that kind generated by the drug traffickers trying to compromise public officials.”
