In May, Demco Express, the employer of Jabin "Wrong Way" Bogan was shut down by the FMCSA, and deemed an imminent hazard. Owner Dennis Makenye then forwarded all calls from the business number to the cell phone he has. He called back people investigating the shutdown and the Bogan case, speaking poorer English than usual, claiming that he didn't know who this Dennis Makenye is and then no commenting every answer after that.
You would think that the imminent hazard closure forced by the FMCSA, shortly after Wrong Way found himself on the wrong side of the law with the 268.000 bullets illegally entering Mexico debacle, would have ensured the roads would've been kept safe from the likes of the Kenyan native Makenye and his less than quality drivers. Yet, you'd be wrong.
After paying the fines and tweeking a few things, Demco Express is once again in full operation. Granted that he barely passed a follow-up examination, and that his scores are in the worst ten percentile possible, they were still allowed open.
We all need to watch this company, and ensure that if they are still doing drugs, driving faulty equipment, and other grievances, it will not continue now.
Personally, I truly hope Howie will take advantage of their now operation, and throw Makenye under the bus like he did Jabin. A lawsuit for the lost bullets would certainly finally bankrupt Dennis.
A dedicated father tried everything to search for his children privately. Finally, on Matteo James' 12th birthday, a father went to social media to spread the word of his plight. Stephen James posted the following:
I want to say Happy Birthday to my son Matteo. He turns 12 today. I havent seen him and his little brother Zane in 80 days since they were kidnapped to Mexico by their biological mother and maternal grandmother. I miss them tremendously and
I know my sons miss me as well as being scared and confused. Please share this with as many people as possible in the hope that eventually Matteo or someone close to him will see this. Thank you.
The mother of the children was on a supervised visit when she took the children. It is alleged they ran to Mexico with the children. This case, however, takes legal twists and turns from there. The court granting sole custody to the father, Stephen James, is Bell County. CPS and law enforcement involvement from before the children became missing involves Williamson, Tarrant, and Bell Counties. The father lives in Williamson County, the mother lived in Tarrant County. All these municipalities, including the cities within have a hand in. Then, there are the higher ups, due to the nature of Mexico involvement. The issue within all of these municipalities is no one wants to issue the warrant. Every side is waiting for the side to do so. So, as Stephen waits, his children could be anywhere.
The pictures above are the last ones taken by their dad. The children have been missing for almost three months. Imagine if this were your child. Would you want people to scream it from the rooftops for you? If so, help Stephen by doing it for him! Help bring his boys back home. Zane will be celebrating a birthday in November. He needs to be celebrating it with his legal guardian, his Dad!
The only picture found of the mother, Alma Alicia Gomez James (aliases include Alicia Gomez, Alicia James), is not as recent. She's dropped weight, but facial recognition shouldn't be that difficult.
Un padre dedicado intentado todo para buscar a sus hijos en privado. Por último, en el cumpleaños 12 de Matteo James, un padre se fue a los medios de comunicación social para difundir la palabra de su difícil situación. Stephen James publicó lo siguiente:
Quiero decir feliz cumpleaños a mi hijo Matteo. Él cumple 12 años hoy. No he visto a él ya su hermano menor de Zane en 80 días desde que fueron secuestrados en México por su madre biológica y su abuela materna. Los extraño muchísimo y
Sé que mis hijos me echas de menos, además de ser asustado y confundido. Por favor, comparta esto con personas como posibles en la esperanza de que con el tiempo Matteo o alguien cercano a él, verán esto. Gracias.
La madre de los niños estaba en una visita supervisada cuando se llevó a los niños. Se alega que corrió a México con los niños. Este caso, sin embargo, toma giros legales y pasa de ahí. El tribunal otorga la custodia exclusiva al padre, Stephen James, es Bell County. CPS y la participación policial delante de los hijos se convirtió en falta implica Williamson, Tarrant, y los condados de Bell. El padre vive en el Condado de Travis, la madre vive en el Condado de Tarrant. Todos estos municipios, incluyendo las ciudades de tener una mano pulg Luego, están los altos mandos, debido a la naturaleza de la participación de México. La cuestión en todos estos municipios hay nadie quiere emitir la orden. Cada lado está esperando a que el lado para hacerlo. Así que, como Stephen espera, sus hijos podrían estar en cualquier parte.
Las fotos de arriba son las últimas tomadas por su padre. Los niños han desaparecido desde hace casi tres meses. Imagínese si se tratara de su hijo. ¿Te gustaría que la gente lo grita a los cuatro vientos para usted? Si es así, ayudar a Stephen al hacerlo por él! Ayude a llevar a sus hijos de vuelta a casa. Zane estará celebrando su cumpleaños en noviembre. Tiene que ser lo celebra con su tutor legal, su papá!
La imagen sólo se encuentran de la madre, Alma Alicia Gomez James (alias incluyen Alicia Gómez, Alicia James), no es tan reciente. Ella bajó de peso, pero el reconocimiento facial no debe ser tan difícil.
Curiosity killed the cat. I'm not a cat though. When I wrote Don't Free Jabin Bogan, exactly what I thought would come of it did. Either people loved or hated me for my bluntness. Then, George came in. Whoever this mysterious George is, thank you. You made me dig deeper than I ever have. george 06/07/2012 13:27 well i grew up with bogan from elementary through high school and he seems to always find him self at the wrong place at the wrong time.. i hope he gets out.. Recently, I tried to contact Mekenye, whom had no comment. He was unwilling to speak of anything after the FMCSA shot Demco down. Some of the bigger violations included drivers that weren't licensed to drive CMV's, and no insurance, so a big shock he chose not to speak to me. Then, onto Spector, who was supposedly representing Bogan. He can't represent Bogan due to the fact he's licensed to practice in the United States, not Mexico. Spector was the proverbial snake in the grass. He's a lawyer who helps Mexicans come to the U.S. He saw a chance for infamy, and he ran with it.Lastly, I spoke to the one victim in this whole case, Howie Glaser. He's the guy who's ammo will probably never be turned over. After promising him several times that I did not work for Mexico Trucker, although Porter and I are friends, and ensuring him I worked for myself, he opened up. (Howie, sorry for waking you up.) Howie is to the point he wants to move on. I haven't showed Howie everything yet, so Howie will read this when yall do, with his jaw most certainly hanging. Yesterday's news re-affirmed that Porter and I were right. Bogan chose to take the toll lane straight into Mexico, and was directed by the Mexican Border Patrol to the vehicle check station after he tried to pull an illegal u turn. He never spoke to U.S. Border Patrol, like so many who weren't there (I do not believe they need to be mentioned again) tried to claim. The first thing they asked him for was his papers, and that's when all hell broke loose for Bogan. For more of the actual events, as told by the actual people there, click here.For the last few weeks however, my mind stays on one thing. The comment George made about Jabin always being at the wrong place at the wrong time. I kept thinking that if this were true, there's other crimes. So, I went looking. This man isn't innocent by any means! A breakdown of Jabin Akeem Bogan, born 07/05/1984. I'd give more, but I'd prefer not to have the poor boy's identity stolen while he sits in prison in Mexico.

Were all these also mistakes? Wrong place, wrong time, wrong turn, wrong country, wrong load, wrong story. When will it ever stop being a mistake? Make him man up. The American judicial system has failed us with this man. Maybe, just maybe, the Mexican judicial system will not fail us on this note. Alas, Jabin is not the innocent man everyone has made it out to be. Councilman Carl Robinson, for your blind efforts with your stand, I hope your town is smart enough to boot your ass out of your seat during the next elections. Do your research before opening your mouth!!
Everything is eventual in the end. I'll leave you with that thought.
How does one miss this?
What a clash the trucking industry is seeing. On one end, you have the blind leading the blind. In we bring Hotels 4 Truckers, Allen Smith, Dan Fuller, Todd Dills (I'm sorry Todd, but I truly believe you're too much of an ass kisser to tell the real news...........just sayin), and a new guy on the scene, William Stewart, who claims a website. You see, he claims it, for www.williamstewartonline.com is listed on his Facebook, but if you click it, what do you see? (Thanks for the free advertising deary!)
On the other end, you have the voices of reason. Porter Corn, myself, and a few, rare others.
"We all take wrong turns" declares the blind. Yes, everyone, no matter what you drive takes wrong turns. They figure out how to "flip a bitch" somewhere, and get on the right track.
If he would've been chastised for making a u-turn, even I would speak up. Yet, he ILLEGALLY entered another country with ammunition, carried in ILLEGALLY. The man did not have milk or cat food, he had AMMUNITION.
He then LIED to federal agents, saying he had nothing to declare. Not only do they ask if you have anything to declare, they go through the list. So, it's not like he wasn't asked about money, drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, weapons, ammunition, etc. It was that he felt it was appropriate to LIE, which is also ILLEGAL.
So, yes, originally, he made a mistake, but instead of LEGALLY correcting said mistake, he broke several laws, making him a FUGITIVE. This is where the difference between innocent mistake and illegal activity and blatant disregard of the law comes into play.
And, this was if he had entered where he claimed he did. I've hinted to this, Porter from Mexico Trucker has hinted to this, and now in the El Paso Times, a man much more knowledgeable on this kind of law has hinted to this: HOW DO WE KNOW HE DIDN'T SNEAK ACROSS? Read:
One of many signs upon entry to Juarez. Apparently, part of Jabin's mistake was not being able to read the English language.
Regardless of Bogan's intentions, René Jáquez, former assistant country attaché in Juárez with the ATF, said that U.S. customs officers should have intercepted the cargo.
"In my opinion, the real question to ask is how is it that our customs agents with all heightened security were able to miss this type of shipment going into Mexico? How was it that this truck was able to get into Mexico with all those ammo?" he said.
And if the cargo was indeed legitimate, Jáquez said, U.S. customs officers should have been able to see the ammunitions, check the paperwork and steer the driver in the right direction.
(Click here for full article.)
This shows where the driver had an intersection to turn around at before the bridge, had he came in on the bridge. Thanks again Porter!
So, here is my main question. If this had been a Mexican trucker bringing the ammo into the U.S., would the blatant disregard of the law be a mistake? If this was an American going into Canada will all that ammo, would you still sing the same tune? If this was one of the very apparent Muslim immigrants in Canada bringing this load into the U.S., turban and all included, would you be singing the same tune? Where do you draw the line at stating this is not just a mistake. It may have started off as a mistake, but if this was a mistake, I'll give you another mistake:
The next time, wrong turn might be a dynamite load that Jabin takes. That load would end up right in front of a school, him hit the wrong speed bump, and the explosion would kill hundreds of children. But, he just took a wrong turn and make a mistake.
Do I need to further make my point on the moronacy of "just a mistake?"
I don't know how it's possible to miss so many signs. Especially, when you notice they're no longer in ENGLISH.
Do I need to post more pictures to get people to understand there are dozens of signs making sure you don't "accidentally" go to Mexico?
