Yet Another Casualty of the Illegal Alien Invasion: Deportee Murders Heroic Cop

Yet another tragedy of the illegal alien invasion, another murder which could have been prevented, if we had tighter borders and someone running Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) who really meant business:

Phoenix police Officer Nick Erfle survived two bouts of cancer to put back on his uniform and patrol the city’s streets.
On Tuesday, a jaywalker shot him in the face and killed him.
“He’s a hard charger. Even though he had a serious illness, he came back to work the streets as soon as he could,” Sgt. Joel Tranter said.

“This will affect the officer’s family and the Phoenix Police Department forever. . . . It will always be a loss.”
The gunman, an illegal immigrant who had been deported last year, fled after shooting Erfle, commandeering a stopped car at gunpoint and ordering the motorist to drive. About an hour later, a Phoenix police tactical team surrounded Erik Jovani Martinez, 22, on a west Phoenix street and shot him dead as he pointed a gun at the hostage. The hostage was not hurt.
“The city of Phoenix, the citizens of Phoenix have lost another hero in our community,” Assistant Phoenix Police Chief Michael Frazier said, announcing Erfle’s death. “He died a hero doing the job he loved doing most.” . . .
Martinez, who had three children, was a gang member with a history of drug abuse, police say. He was convicted of theft in 2004 and served a short stint in prison in 2006. Immigration officials confirmed he had been deported in March 2006. . . .
Roger Elliott, who works nearby, came outside after a maintenance man told him to dial 911.
“Oh, my God, there was just blood all over the place,” Elliott said. “I can’t even describe it. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
“There was no movement at all. . . . I’m sure he was dead.”
Elliott said it took three officers to pull Rodarme away from his partner. Paramedics pumped on Erfle’s chest before whisking him away in an ambulance.
“It was just a feeling I will never, ever forget,” Elliott said. “I just cannot believe it. . . . It’s such a stupid thing.” . . .
Erfle had been an officer for eight years. He was pronounced dead at 9:30 a.m.
In Erfle’s north Phoenix neighborhood Tuesday night, Tiana Iannuzzi, 17, tearfully remembered the officer as a playful and patient family man who never raised his voice. Iannuzzi baby-sat for Erfle’s two sons, ages 3 and 5, and said the officer was “a great guy.”
Erfle had twice battled testicular cancer.
“We miss him a lot,” said Tiana’s mother, Carmella Iannuzzi. “He was just so strong during his cancer treatment. It’s just very sad. He was just an all-around good guy.”

Yet another life snuffed out by an illegal alien killer. Amnesty, anyone?

Gosh, when will we actually send them away when they are suppose to go? They’re NOT citizens!!! Here’s two more that were shopped to a clueless representative. And we know Columbians are our friends…

Debbie it’s not gonna matter to the politicans on both sides. The death busters wanna screw america, so they’ll screw america and tell us to fuck off.
No matter how many stories we’re gonna keep hearing about illegal aliens commiting crimes and stealing jobs and such, it’ll never get through to the enemies within our own government.
So, this is now the time that we americans need to run this country ourselves. It’s now the time to kick the death busters out of our goverment and NOW. Anyone with me?? Anyone ready to join me in kicking the illegals back to the ratholes they came from??

“Blogs for Borders” gives a weekly update on the senseless murders, rapes and dui deaths all caused by these third world a**holes. This is one more for the list!
Democrat and Republican alike are doing nothing that the American people want in regard to our border security. How many more American citizens must be murdered before we march on our local statehouses and demand action? Action now and not four years later!! Our leaders do not fear the American people. Expressing our anger through the voting booth has no meaning. We vote one rat bastard out and vote another rat bastard in to take his place! What good does that accomplish? We have a Constitution and Bill of Rights for a reason and if we choose to not stand on our statehouse lawns and read these documents to these morons through loud speakers and let them know that their gig is up then it is our fault for letting things get worse. We must draw a line in the grass now.

As much as it pains me to read of this, it comes as no surprise. I’ve seen it happen time and again; prior deportees, especially aggravated felons, reenter the country or get let out of detention due to “lack of space” which is psycho-babble for lack of diligence to duty.
As I’ve stated before, it won’t change until ICE quits fucking around and gets serious about weeding out all these pukes and CBP starts shutting down the borders. No more pantywaist politics…if the whiners cry foul and wimper about racism, fuck ’em and feed ’em fish heads!
There should be an open season on these criminal assholes starting NOW!

1shot1kill on September 19, 2007 at 5:25 pm

Hey 1shot1kill, I hope you are not naive enough to think ICE and CBP can actually decide whether or not the border is shut down. This decision rests solely on the shoulders of our politicians. You could put every ICE agent and CBP employee on the borders tomorrow, and it still won’t be enough people to make a dent. It would be one of the most massive tasks this country has ever seen, but one that is long overdue. This is one ICE agent who would willfully go to the border if the politicians in this country would stop screwing around and SHUT IT DOWN!! They can grant amnesty every week, it is not going to change crap until the border is closed.

Mega-kudos to the hero on the Phoenix P.D. who shot that piece-of-shit criminal illegal alien. More of the same, please.
Target practice at the border, anyone?

theendisnear on September 20, 2007 at 12:11 am

I can’t wait to hear how the nations leading bleeding heart, Geraldo Rivera, tries to rationalize this one away. Someone at FOX (or anywhere) PLEASE hold his feet to the fire on this murder.

Rich B on September 20, 2007 at 2:09 am

Isellers….you of course, have a valid point. but, hey, you could start shooting illegal border crossers in the butt, providing you like going to jail. Not a choice I’d make either. Your political bosses, like many of mine before I before I took a buyout and left DoD, have now substituted the “process” for the “product” …e.g., it’s all about “how” you do things, not whether you get a damn thing done.
This must change or we are all in deep Kimchi, as the saying went….or Menudo, or Schwarma (sic?), if you will.

All good posts here. It is so infuriating. The link to the story by ezranter how Dodd and others want to award freaking special benefits for illegal “minors” is like an extra insult. DREAM Act my a__!
I talk to people every day and I don’t know anyone who thinks like Geraldo–that it’s not their fault–we should give them amnesty. Geraldo is idiot like the above poster said–we know he will excuse illegals for any crime as though they are the victims. We saw a groundswell against amnesty for illegals that they were all set to jam down our throats this summer–but these are an extraordinarily determined bunch of pols who try relentlessly to give our country away and to empower lawbreakers who only deserve deportation.
The fact that this murdering POS came right back in the country after being deported once shows that simple deportation may not be enough–but of course until we actually police our borders–we will see this stuff go on and on.
Keep up the good fight DS bloggers. Each one tell 10 or more–word spreads and we will force them to deal with it. We can’t let these bastards wear us out. There is too much at stake.

BB on September 20, 2007 at 6:41 am

Our country is now in a state of anarchy! I would never have thought I’d ever say these words.

etruth1 on September 20, 2007 at 10:57 am

Nick was a fine looking young man with a beautiful family. An asset to our community destroyed by illegal immigration.
And our stupid a**hat governor, Janet Napolitano, said in a presser this week that illegal immigration had nothing to do with it.
She’s also the one who said if we build a 14 foot high fence at the border, the illegals will build a 15 foot high ladder.
She should be impeached. She absolutely does not want to do anything about the overwhelming crimes of violence committed daily here in the Phoenix metro area BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS!

kozanne on September 20, 2007 at 1:22 pm

Janet Napolitano declared an emergency at the borders yet still has refused to deploy the national
guard at the border.
Another empty promise by the open borders Gov. that lies through her teeth,
Too bad we cannot sue her for aiding and abetting and contributing the death of this cop.

ScottyDog on September 20, 2007 at 5:00 pm

And when we’ve gotten rid of all the illegal Mexicans, can someone please do something about all the illegal Irish? There are so many in New York it would make your head spin. And they are DEFINITELY taking jobs that Americans want.

LoveAManInAUniform on September 20, 2007 at 7:59 pm

Just to set you at ease so you won’t suffer any sleepless nights, no I’m not naive by any notion to believe shutting down the borders is a decision left soley to ICE/CBP. I’m well aware that the inbred finalists we have in Congress play a major role in deciding how far to bend us over the barrel. Bear in mind also that they are the same arrogant twits who play just as much a part in political appointee hacks like Myers, Chertoff, and the rest of “Our Gang” being placed in positions to make those decisions. Enough said on their qualifications.
The whole system needs a complete overhaul/house cleaning but I don’t see it looming on the horizon anytime soon.

1shot1kill on September 21, 2007 at 3:32 am

**LoveAManInAUniform…..those Mick’s swimmin’ over eh, trying to make NYC a suburb of Dublin, huh? Irish Sharia is awesome, I know, but come on….you relly think it compares to Mexican and Mid-Eastern illegal immigration?
Hell, just put up those old “Help Wanted” signs, you know…the ones that said “Irish need not Apply.” Don’t see too many of those for Mescans or ME Muslims do you? Go figure.
Zoyadog (Celtic in America since 17th century on one side, 19th century on the other….and fought in every war since arriving….mine was Vietnam,TYVM…even Irish wear the Uniform ya know) a.k.a Aridog.
(I’ve no idea why Type Key didn’t accept my regular Nic? Maybe my endearing charm, eh? What the heck, “Zoya” was my favorite dog ever, may she RIP)

Zoyadog on September 21, 2007 at 6:50 am

Excuse me “BB”….
>>I talk to people every day and I don’t know anyone who thinks like Geraldo–that it’s not their fault–we should give them amnesty. Geraldo is idiot like the above poster….
And just how do you devine that from my posts? Since I am the “above poster” to your screed, I’d suggest to you anyone comparing me to Geraldo is the idiot. I’d prefer Wonder Beaner have been lost at sea on his last sailing trip around the world….at least we’d have been spared is angst meltdown in New Orelans cum Katrina. Failing that, I have to assume he’s Fox News “token” difrel, since they have other excellent Hispanic news casters.

Zoyadog on September 21, 2007 at 7:01 am

You people don’t want to be ‘racist’, and you’ll cry if someone like me is. So, deal with the racist, Hispanic invasion of your country. You’re getting what you say you want; a “diverse”, “non-racist” country.

steve ventry on September 22, 2007 at 5:53 pm

Let us not forget that AMERICANS ARE IMMIGRANTS TOO.
