David Salgado remembers when, as a 9-year-old boy, he would head out at 4 a.m. to pick up newspapers for his south Phoenix delivery route.
Most mornings, the Phoenix police officer in charge of patrolling Salgado's neighborhood was there, too.

"He would be parked in his car, and it gave me a good feeling knowing he was looking out for me," he said.
Now a Phoenix police officer himself, Salgado, 51, patrols the Phoenix streets just a few miles from where he grew up and where his mother still lives.
The officer has worked to establish relationships and trust with the majority of Hispanic residents in the central Phoenix Garfield neighborhood.

Quote:
"The problem is this is an immigration-law issue, and for me to enforce immigration is going to be difficult because of training," Salgado said in an interview with The Arizona Republic. "It's going to take away from me concentrating on more serious crimes."
Salgado's lawyer, Augustine Jimenez, said he expects the new law to be found unconstitutional.
Jimenez said the law creates an environment in which people will think they are being racially profiled.
"Even if an officer acts in non-racial terms, you're going to get lawsuits," Jimenez said. "People are going to feel profiled."

Don't worry Salgado, legal hispanics will have nothing to worry about. And apparently the law won't have any effect on you since it's evident that you aren't going to arrest any of your illegal relatives. If we can document your refusal to arrest deserving illegal aliens though then maybe we can get you kicked out of LE. I guess that when tribally ethnocentric legal hispanics allow illegal alien infestations to live right in the middle of the hispanic community uncontested there's bound to be some repurcussions.

However, I dont think the other article stated the officer's story regarding his own experience when he was a child.

His childhood experiences have nothing to do with upholding the law that you signed up for and pledged an oath to do so. He can go sit on the UE line now or go back to where he came from and sue his home country for the reasons why he left.

After he gets fired, he'll probably file a lawsuit claiming he was let go because of dsicrimination. Another media junkie who was afraid he might have actually had to do his job.

LOL That cop reminds me of the slackers I work with in the factory. Same lame excuses. Oh I can't do that job I need more training. Oh I can't do that job it will distract me from doing my other work.
Well then why is it that 95% of the other guys on the job CAN do it and with no additional training? Why is it that the other people on the job CAN do it and not let distract them from their other duties????
Because Officer David Salgado is making excuses and doing his best not to admit that he supports illegals and doesn't want to enforce any law that would hold illegals accountable.
Officer Salgado Please, Please do your community a favor and resign from the job you obviously are no longer qualified to do.

Ah be fair now. There are plenty of Hispanic border agents and police who are doing a fine job. Salgado only speaks for himself. He is either a lazy inept police officer or a corrupt police officer.
