'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Info aids criminals

Regarding the news story “Berlin officer dragged by car saves herself, woman; pushes driver out, hits brakes within feet of pole” (March 6 and TribLIVE.com): I certainly admire and applaud the professionalism and bravery exhibited by Officer Michelle Piscitella, as related in the story. And I'm truly glad that she and the driver were not injured.

However, I wish it had not been revealed that only one officer is on duty at a time in Berlin Borough, Somerset County, and that at minimum, backup is 12 miles away. Releasing such information only benefits criminals.
