Rocks, Rifles and Illegal Immigration
With all the uproar of the Israeli commandos killing pro-Palestinian activist off the coast of Gaza I wonder how soon will our media along with world opinion start to protest the killing of a Mexican invader by our Border Patrol agents.
One thing is for certain, Mexicans have learned the fine art of throwing rocks at armed militia from the Palestinians. For years I often wondered why any half intelligent human being would stand in front of a group of men armed with assault rifles, shields and riot gear and throw rocks at them. Unless you are a baseball player the accuracy of throwing a rock pales in comparison to a highly trained marksman with a rifle.
A group of Mexican invaders were stopped while trying to enter this country without proper documentation by U.S. Border agents and obviously illegally. But in a move more likened by the Palestinians, these Mexicans start throwing rocks.
Rocks versus guns and you can guess who wins this one! A Mexican teen aged invader is killed after being ordered to stop throwing rocks. Instead of the Mexican government supporting our agents for defending themselves and the laws of this nation they are trying to make this some sort of international incident, a la Israeli commando killing of Turkish activist.
The great thing about both these incidents is that there is video to support the defense of what actually occurred. And both groups were forced to use lethal force to defend themselves.
Crossing the border without permission is a crime. Intentionally assaulting a U.S. citizen and law enforcement agent is a dangerous crime. We do not want to import crime. We already have enough of our own. So if you want to come here, use the proper channels and enter our land legally.
I have one suggestion for other potential Mexican violators; "Sticks and Stones may break our bones but if your choose to throw stones our Border Agents may shoot to kill!" Graveyard dead!
These are my words! Please post yours!
The teen that was killed is a known human smuggler and was on the "most wanted" list of juvenile smugglers. Mexican security forces have trained their weapons on the FBI agents investigating the Border agent shooting. Like I said above, the Mexicans are trying to make this into an international incident which it is not when their citizens continue to violate our laws and enter our country illegally.
