This article is well sourced and is very interesting. However, there are gender and ethnicity fault lines throughout the article because the only time a female was interviewed (Rosa Rodriguez) the journalist did not ask her about her opinion on what had happened instead they told her just to state what she knew. In addition, as a minority case (Puerto Rican ethnicity) this article only addresses how corrupt the Puerto Rican officers acted. Only in one sentence were 63 heroes congratulated. In my opinion they should have elaborated on how some Puerto Rican officers were working to stop the drug trafficking and have successfully done so since the FBI states that it’s the biggest corruption case. All in all, I felt like some officers needed to be congratulates as well as some needed to be accused.
