Another Day in Mordor

From the the Washington Examiner:: "The garbage truck driver who struck and killed a bicyclist in Dupont Circle in 2008 has been sentenced to two years and seven months in prison for illegally re-entering the United States after having been deported for an aggravated felony.

Marco Rosendo Flores-Fuentes, 48, was deported to Mexico in 1994 after serving more than two years in prison for a marijuana importation and distribution conviction. He illegally re-entered the United States a few years later, court records say."

What of the hauling company who hired Flores-Fuentes, a man with such a checkered past?

The cyclist was Alice Swanson (pictured), a vivacious 22-year-old who worked at the International Research and Exchange Board, a non-profit organization. Ms. Swanson was also a 2007 grad of Amherst College. She was remembered here and here.
