Hundreds of defense attornies specializing in immigration matters are converging on the scene.
We can expect quick and thorough justice from the Obama Justice Dept. Probably form a committee to study why illegal Mexicans hate us.
Pray for our Border Warriors. This is awful.
I think the defense law firm of McCain, Bush, Obama and Gingrich should be saddled up by now.
Will surprises never cease? /s
I used to work in this area.
Saw the writing on the wall and got the hell out, back to Texas thank goodness.
The SOBs that did this should be taken care of outside of the “Justice” system.
America is being invaded and Holder and Obama are holding open the door, with the complicity of many RINOs and Big Business. They want cheap, illegal labour and are willing to sacrifice the lives of law-abiding Americans to get it.
I know the Peck Canyon region quite well as a relative lives nearby. For the last three months there has been increased activity in the canyon which stretches from east to west. Gangs have been blocking the entry of illegals and extorting money from them. Other gangs (perhaps the same) are blocking the entry of narcotics mules and confiscating their goods for sale in Tucson. It is literally the wild west, and the few Border Patrol that crisscross this area (usually on horse), are outmanned and outgunned. Frankly put, the United States controls only a few miles of the Arizona-Sonora border.
Agreed. Too many folks confuse the legal system for a justice system.
Illegal aliens. Doing the killing Americans won’t do.
Rio Rico is 10 miles north of the border.
I’m sure our ‘Justice’ Department has mustered every available man and woman to find ways this incident can be blamed on the dead border patrol agent.
Nothing to see here folks.... move along.
Why not? Obama and his leftist media toadies have everyone convinced the law in AZ are just a buncha racial profiling hicks.
My sister lives in Tucson and I fear for her safety in that area of the state even though she lives in a nicer area.
I have a nephew who is a BP agent in the Tuscon district. He patrols in the Douglas area. What you wrote conforms to what he has told me. It ain’t pretty down there.
