An autopsy report can reveal how often some other person fired a gun? Do they mean she was hit 10 times? That seems improbable.

More bad journalism. These articles are painful to read.

The autopsy report says her blood had some methamphetamine.

"some methamphetamine"?

And she is the victim? Pure BS.

“Some methamphetamine” as opposed to “more” or “all” methamphetamines....

Sounds like the agent was justified.
It’s not nice to run people down and not render aid.

"mother of five"

That's a lot of kids. Explains the need for the meth.

10 shots from a govt agent firearm never equal 10 bullet wounds on the target fired at.

And she was definitely not the victim here.

Sounds like the Agent needs some range time. One shot to break the wind shield and one head shot to take her down.

...saying the agent had a long history of misconduct in a previous law enforcement job and should not have been on the street.

He wasn't on the street. He was on the hood of your mama's car.

CASE DISMISSED!

“Mother of five” The Agent knew this as she was trying to murder him? Should he have allowed himself to be run over because his would-be killer was a mother? What bastards these journalists are. I rejoice every time I read of another one being laid off.

Salon.com is liberal, what else do you expect. The mother of 5 really meant to kill the border patrol guy is just lucky to be alive.

Typical FR comment... Seriously, go ahead and practice that shot from the hood of a car as someone attempts to run you down. I don’t know how range time gets you ready for that.

To borrow a phrase from Capt Malcolm Reynolds, “If somebody tries to kill you, you try to kill them RIGHT BACK!!”

I don’t think they know the details based upon the info from the article which stated there were 14 gunshot wounds to her upper body and that some bullets may have caused more than one wound.

Want to bet that we paid for the birth of all five and California is paying for their welfare now? I wonder if that money was used to buy meth?
