Border Patrol Agent Killed by Fleeing Car

A border patrol agent was struck and killed by an illegal driving a car who entered the US illegally:

Witnesses told the Yuma Sun newspaper that agents were chasing a Hummer and a Ford pickup on Interstate 8 when the vehicles turned into the dunes and fled toward Mexico. The agent was trying to place spike strips in their path and was struck by the Hummer, they said.

"Mexican authorities are using every means at their disposal to arrest the people responsible" for the slaying, said a statement released Saturday night by Mexico's Foreign Relations department.

I don't get any comfort from what these Mexican officials say. I don't trust them as far as I can throw them.

Given that the Mexican government has actively provided advice and assistance to aspiring wetbacks, to trust its statements on this subject would be insane.

At some point, Americans have to grasp that our neighbor to the south regards us as an exploitable resource. Certainly it doesn't respect our sovereignty.

I have to think about that statement a bit. I know it's an old phrase but what does it mean exactly? Do you trust big, fat guys less than you trust little, skinny guys?

;-)

Regardless, I don't trust Mexican officials either.

No more spike strips.

Next time, sniper rifles and shotguns.

And maybe an M60- or at least a SAW.

That means grabbing another cerveza.

Fabulous.

Where's Johnny Sutton? I'm sure the agent taunted the poor disadvantaged criminal initiating this justifiable response.

PissedOff LEO:

I don't understand how this Border Patrol Agent did not use his weapon. Never mind, probably the last thing that came to his mind was if I do my job and defend myself I will probably end up with Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean. He would have probably been arrested and prosecuted for shooting a drug smuggler and the drug smuggler would have probably been given papers to come into the U.S. legally to testified against him. And the worst thing would be that a jury of "AMERICANS" would have convicted him. If you don't believe this can happen just look up Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean. These things are happening because all law enforcement agents are second guessing themselves and are afraid of the consequences for doing their job.
