SANTA MONICA, California (CNN) -- A prosecutor in the Ennis Cosby slaying case said Tuesday that jurors' names should be kept secret to protect them because the Ukrainian immigrant charged with the crime is a member of the Mexican mafia.
Superior Court Judge David Perez rejected prosecutor Anne Ingalls' bid for secrecy. He said California law requires jurors' names to be public unless there is a compelling reason to keep them secret.
Ingalls suggested that jurors could be in danger of retaliation from supporters of Michael Markhasev, who is charged with killing the son of comedian Bill Cosby. "My information is that he is a 'made' member of the Mexican mafia," Ingalls said of the 19-year-old Markhasev. "We are concerned about that."
A "made" member is one who is formally initiated into a gang. Markhasev's lawyer, Henry Hall, protested Ingalls' remarks, saying, "That's the biggest bunch of nonsense I've heard." However, he agreed that jurors should remain anonymous. (full text)

Narcoregime in Deep Crisis
But Washington Still Underwrites Militarization
By Bill Weinberg
The fall of Mexico's Drug Czar is but the latest development in the wholesale takeover of the Mexican state by the drug cartels. The selfimplosion of the Mexican elite in a string of bloody narcovendettas reaches the highest levels of power. Yet Washington keeps pouring your taxdollars into the regimeto fight drug traffickers! ...Or to prop up NAFTA and suppress revolutionaries? On February 18, the Mexican Defense Ministry announced that Brig. Gen. Jesus Guti?rrez Rebollo, Mexico's top military Drug War pointman, had been arrested on charges of receiving payoffs from Juarez Cartel kingpin Amado Carrillo Fuentes (aka the "Lord of the Skies"). US Drug Czar Gen. Barry McCaffrey had weeks earlier called Gen. Gutierrez "a guy of absolute unquestioned integrity." The Clinton Administration admitted that Gen. Gutierrez, as head of the National Institute to Combat Drugs, had received highlevel intelligence briefings in the US.
