thats speculation. it doesnt have any factual basis, it is just your pure opinion.

If he wasn't an illegal alien then he wouldn't have to shoot the officer? Come on you got something better than that
the threat of prosecution and subsequent action makes it so people are more desperate to avoid being captured. if the illegal immigrant received nothing more than a small fine (as opposed to deportation), there is a much more realistic chance that he would not have found the need to use deadly force.
thats a no-brainer.

It is to reveal the dirt they piled on themselves, nobody said citizens dont shoot cops. Yes sadly he was in the USA

Why have any laws at all, then? Let's get rid of all of them for law enforcement's benefit. That would make their jobs super easy!

Beg to differ with you on that.

It is a shame - The guy was deported once and managed to sneak back into the United States. When will they learn that we need to secure the border and deport those that should not be here.

There's a reason why this thug was here in the first place, and it wasn't to make an honest living. When they come across the border illegally, that should give somebody a clue on how much respect illegals have for our laws.

I'm sure the majority of Hispanics that come here illegally do so for legitimate reasons, but I think an effort should be made to crackdown on what's coming across the border, and who's here already. I can guarantee you that you'll find many illegals with a previous criminal history. The Mexican government wants to get rid of their "unwanted" citizens, and they don't want to do anything to stop the illegal immigration, and our government is helping them.

This is not an act of desperation. This is an act of a cowardly criminal who thinks he deserves to be here.

Prayers to the officer and family.

We post things like this to show everyone that not all illegals are here simply for a better life. Plenty of them are criminals and this is just another of many crimes that would not have occured if this person was not allowed to come into the country illegally....again
