Wow, this agent shot this guy through the fence. These guys who are attacking BP do so to avert their attention from smugglers. I think they think they are safe as long as they are on the other side of that fence, I hope this shooting sets a precident and our agents are allowed to defend themselves cross border. Hey, if their military can cross our border and hold our agents hostage, then those attacking from their side of the fence should be fair game.

I tend to agree.

A rock is a weapon and a firearm is a justifiable 'next level of force' in response IMHO.

I agree 100%, hisgirl.

This PC crap at the border has got to stop. Our Border Patrol Agents are being attacked constantly and our Border Patrol Vehicles are being destroyed by these goons on a daily basis while we continue to "look the other way" and do nothing.

It's about time we GET SERIOUS and begin protecting our Agents and Property!

I only hope that this does not become another railroading of our border patrol guards for doing their jobs and protecting themselves. God Bless all our border guards.

The Mexican military has deliberately come onto American soil on more than one occasion. Their nationals are allowed to invade and destroy our country and kill our citizens; they have more consulates on US soil than any other country, and their nationals are being allowed to attack our border patrol with zero repercussions.

Yet we continue to allow this insanity. At what point do we defend ourselves?

The border patrol should go to jail. He shot the person through the fence.

The person was no danger to him he did not have a gun. Rocks do not go through those fences.

I hope he is arrested and sits next to the other 2 border guards currently in prison.

Thanks for posting the article, but you made a mistake in your reading of it that makes this incident even more justified. The rock thrower was on the U.S. SIDE OF THE BORDER!!! He then fled back to his country after assaulting our brave law enforcement officers.

From the article.
"The victim was able to make it across the border and is being treated and Mexican hospital.


I also noticed something that is despicable. NBC calls an illegal from another country who attacks a United Stated Law Enforcement Officer on U.S. Soil “THE VICTIM!!!
We need an Emote for throwing up.


Keep posting the news, your work is apreciated.

Sorry, Achury, your lack of knowledge is showing!

Have you considered a quick visit to the Southern Border before making such idiotic and uninformed statements?

Those goons frequently throw large rocks upwards to the size of basketballs, not just little pebbles, OVER the fence at our Border Patrol Agents and their vehicles trying to divert their attention while a Gaggle of Goons INVADE our country. However, in this particular case, it appears the goons were on this side of the fence and once our Border Patrol Agents began defending themselves as well as EVERY U.S. CITIZEN, they immediately returned to Mexico.

A rock can be deadly, therefore a deadly weapon, just like a vehicle. So you think these illegals should be able to assault our officers with a DEADLY weapon and our officers cannot defend themselves? I know which side of the fence you belong on.

Why don't you educate yourself a little before making an ignorant statement that rocks don't go through fences.
