Illegal Alien Story 1

Have you noticed yet that, though thousands (yes, thousands) of illegal aliens live and work in the Low Country, they never appear in the Newsless Courier? How could that be? Oh, yes, I forgot. The Newsless Courier's policy is not to identify them.

Such is the case with the first article in today's local section. A body is found roadside on Wadmalaw Island in the wee hours of the morning:

"Man found dead on roadside leaves big mystery for police"

How could this story have any connection to illegal aliens? Read on.

The dead man, Maynor Gomez, died of his injuries "either hit by a car or [fallen] from a car or ... thrown from a car on the Maybank Highway." Mr. Gomez "had been living in the Charleston area, though his exact address was unknown." Unknown by whom? Need I spell out that the area where the accident occured is heavily populated by illegal aliens? How do the police or anyone else determine who are the criminals among them?

Please do not insult my intelligence by suggesting that there are no criminals among illegal aliens. Of course, as far as we know, they are a small minority, as they would be in any other group of poor people. Still.

This victim, a Hispanic man in his early twenties, alien or not, may never be avenged. Sheriff's deputies are asking for information on the case.

Here's the most interesting part: they are also looking for a van he may have owned that sheriff's Capt. John Clark stated is "not at his house." That would be the house where "the exact address is unknown"? [Editor, where are you?].

So, we have a mysterious death of a victim who had been seen driving a mysterious van that was usually [but not now] parked at his "unknown" exact address. Got that?

Illegal alien story #1. Prove I'm wrong.
