UPS: Brownshirts Block Federal Drug Smuggling Investigation

By Debbie Schlussel
UPS is at it again. First, I exposed the shipping company’s Package Apartheid policy of not delivering to Jews–but only to Muslims–in certain politically incorrect areas of Israel. The company backtracked and changed its policy, while pretending it never had such a policy.
Now, federal agents inform me that UPS is blocking a drug smuggling investigation. Read this e-mail and learn what Brown doesn’t do for you:

UPS: What Brown Won’t Do For America

Debbie,
We have been attempting to conduct a narcotics operation involving drugs that were shipped from a foreign country via UPS. The contraband was intercepted by CBP [DS: Customs and Border Protection] in another city and forwarded here because the address is located here. The general idea was to enlist the assistance of UPS to either deliver it with one of us in the van or to borrow a uniform and make the delivery. Once delivered and signed for, BAM! We have done this in the past with FedEx and DHL and they have always stepped up to the plate and helped in any way possible. Not UPS…those spineless creampuffs start whining and back-peddling, making excuses about their company policy and putting their workers in Harm’s Way, ya-da, ya-da. We went all the way to the head of security and got the same BS. As far as I’m concerned, their lack of assistance and indifference to the fact that dangerous narcotics are being smuggled into the United States by their carrier service leads me to believe they condone it. God forbid they should do their part to secure this nation. We’ll get it done without those mopes.
And, that’s “what Brown can do for you!”.

Yet another reason NOT to use UPS. Go for Fed-Ex, DHL, and the good old-fashioned U.S. Postal Service, instead.

Another company put on my boycott list.
If they were really concerned about their employees safety, they would comply with law enforcement’s request. Imagine: A drug smuggler ships a drug shipment using UPS and has the tracking number. Using that number, he could track where the parcel is. He then could hijack the truck as it leaves the facility for delivery and possibly hurt or kill the driver.

Luckily, as consumers we now have choices for shipping….DHL, FedEx, Airborne, etc. I’ll vote with my checkbook and refuse to use UPS from now on, in my business and personally.
Americans should treat UPS like they treat other useless, unpleasant, malodorous objects…..Flush Them! Down with chUmPS

Why doesn’t the CPB just arrest the UPS delivery man?

I quit using UPS years ago because their station staff was arrogant, and their rates went above USPS rates after their drivers last went on strike. The drivers who deliver to my home seem decent. (Their commercials, calling the company “Brown,” make no sense to me whatsoever.) But thanks for the “head-up,” Debbie. I’m forwarding your piece to all my buddies.

I think you are being unjustly harsh on UPS , I know for a FACT that they do cooperate with local , state and federal drug enforcement units . Your example may have been an isolated case , not unlike those you so often report on from all levels of coperate and governmental America . Don’t go off half-cocked over a complaint from one individual . Otherwise I am a big fan , and check your site many times daily .

The vicious, anti-semitic hate group International Solidarity Movement (ISM), dedicated to the destruction of Israel and in league with Hamas and Fatah Jihadists, is on a US speaking tour.
The goal: convince American students that Israel is an evil aparteid state.
Jewish students like Mr. Rister who have attended and dared ask if the ISM supports terrorism, have been set upon by ISM goons and been beaten:

Next week the pro-Jihadist thugs are at St. Mary’s College, San Jose State University, and UC Berkeley.
Notice that the St. Mary’s event is sponsored by various departments (usual suspects: History, Sociology, Women’s Studies, etc…). This is sickening official support for cold-blooded murder.

If you’re in the area, please don’t let them get away with the homicidal lies. Be advised: bring some big friends for protection, because these guys tolerate no dissent.

I like UPS because they don’t lose my packages like the USPS, and they aren’t as expensive as FedEx. For those reasons, I will not be boycotting them any time soon.

Isn’t UPS the same company that will not ship weapons or parts for weapons, no matter the legality. Seems just more of the same from UPS. It also seems they and Bank of America think along the same lines. Disgusting.

Debbie, feds like Johnny Sutton in Texas actually protect illegal alien drug smugglers and convict hard-working Border Patrol Agents and cops who seek to keep drugs out ofthe country. Besides that, UPS’s transgression is small potatoes. As a private company, it has NO enforcement powers. When the U.S government is serious about enforcing our drug laws, then it will have the standing to go after scofflaws like UPS.

If they are not part of the solution, they are part of the problem. RICO:
The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly referred to as RICO Act or RICO) is a United States federal law which provides for extended penalties for criminal acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization.
Do we need an Attorney General to “talk turkey” to Big Brown?

Dr.Dale on February 22, 2007 at 11:45 pm

Wow, that’s alarming. I’m going to have to push to use another carrier for our shipping.

Boycott them! See what you can do to Brown!

That must be butt-snorkler code talk for sphincter because thats where your head’s buried. Whether or not it’s an isolated case is irrelevant; the fact that it happened, and will continue to happen, is a travesty and proof that “Spinal Missing-duh” is rearing it’s ugly head. By the way, I have it on solid, factual intel that it’s their lily-livered policy across the U.S. not to get involved, that coming from their high-ups in corporate.
Seems all that “Brown” CAN do is shit in their own messkit.
You’re dismissed, Dirtbag!

That must be butt-snorkler code talk for sphincter because that seems to be where your head is. It’s not an isolated incident; that happens to be their corporate policy nationwide. I have it on solid, factual intel through reliable contacts. It’s evident that a catastrophic outbreak of SM (Spina-Missing(duhhhhh) has taken over. All they care about is the profit line; never mind if it drugs are something far more threatening.
Looks like all “Brown” CAN do is shit in their own mess kit!
You’re dismissed!

The only people who are anti-drug are uneducated laymen with an IQ of 5. Simple economics proves that when you make a commodity such as drugs illegal, you create a black market. You cannot affect the demand for drugs, all you can do is cut the supply and make the drugs more expensive and cause individuals to look for substitutes, such as Meth. Once again it is only the laymen who donít realize why prohibition didnít work. Go to college all you laymen who are ignorant and just talk nonsense. The war on drugs has created a dangerous black market which is exactly symbiotic to prohibition. Take a history class on the years surrounding prohibition and research how corrupt the government was during those times. As with many uneducated individuals ignorance is bliss. As a free country founded on the rights of life liberty and the pursuit of happiness, where and when did we ever give the right to the government to tell us what we canít consume. The old United States that was founded for the people has swept away and has been replaced with Nazi Germany. We are outlawing smoking in restaurant (it should be up to the owner, customers can go somewhere else), trans-fat. What is the United States turning into? Brown is looking out for the people rights.

Thank you kain for the only educated comment on here! These people are all a bunch of uber conservative old fashioned anti drug nuts! I bet they are mostly right wing supporters, I bet they are very religious also. These are the demographics of the type of people who post comments like them. Thankfully they are all older in age and are dying off good thing the world is changing the way we think about draconian drug laws! One more thing, f*ck the DEA!

Yoseph on August 2, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Listen up all you uninformed people. First the war on drugs is fueled by the govt and is a complete faliure. If you dont beleve me I wont even bother explaining the why’s and how’s you can do your own research. As for FEDS going under cover as UPS workers, THIS PUTS UPS WORKERS AT RISK..! VERIZON the telephone company USED TO let cops go undercover as telephone workers to get closer to drug dealers and such in South Side Jamaica Queens NY and after a while the drug dealers started to take it out on the REAL VERIZON TELEPHONE WORKERS. Why should UPS men or VERIZON workers jepordize their saftey for a miserable excuse for a “war on drugs”.
