The shooter or shooters may have fled across the border.

*Snort* Which way?

Prayers for the officer's family. Prayers that our national case of cranial rectumitis will be cured before it becomes terminal.

No matter how you may feel about our borders...this man’s family needs our prayers. And all of our border agents need prayer that this never EVER happens again...

Thanks to the Freeper who alerted me about this...

I knew this was going to happen at Campo one of these days, and it could have been my boy who was killed if he hadn't transferred out of there a few years back. I consider this an act of war, but I;m sure Obama won't. Who will avenge the blood of our patriots? The brave men and women of the USBP serve just like they do in Iraq and Afghanistan, and with much less armory or support.

This is incredible! I am that worked up about it. Nevertheless, my prayers are for the agent, his family, and for the Patrol, and of course, for the country. We cannot survive long if we allow this to go unanswered. Put those returning Iraq troops on our California border.

Oh no .. how horrible.

He’s out there defending us from
illegals trying to criminally
enter our country and gets killed?

Lord, rest the soul of this brave
man .. embrace his grieving family
with Your comfort and mercy. Bless
and protect all in this dangerous
job.

And Lord, please wake up the people
who are in control of the policies
that control our border protection.

WAIT and see if Obama says anything about this, or will he ignore it like the killing of an Army recruiter by a moslem extremist.

Obama’s heart right now is in Assachusetts. He head is up his ***.

What else can I say?

If obumber says anything it will be that the officer acted stupidly.

I hope this is the last patriot to die under obumber’s watch, but I fear it is not.

I don’t think Mexico ever handed over the last BP murderer, and there was no US retaliation for their crime.

The Democrats and their RINO brethren said we couldn’t afford the fence. Dead Americans, that they can afford.

I have a radical solution to this problem: Put 100% of the border Patrol Officers on the Canadian border and pull our troops in Europe from NATO to put them on the Mexican border with state of war Rules of Engagement.

My prayers are up for the slain patriot's family.

Eisenhower solved the problem pretty well (but I bet you knew that, Soldier)
Ike was serious about a solution.

Obviously neither of the political parties today are, so 'we the people' will have to insist.

Well according to Obama those border patrol agents were just “acting stupidly” while carrying out their duties.

THANK YOU for posting this! Hubby and I heard about this from a Sheriff friend, last night, as it was going down. Hubby was one of the first group of MM in AZ.

This morning, Sheriff friend wanted to know how it was covered in the SD Union Tribune (we no longer get the liberal rag) and found the article...not on page 1...BUT ON PAGE FOUR!!!!

I was going to post it myself because...I WANTED THIS TO BE ON THE FRONT PAGE SOMEWHERE!

A previous poster is correct...This IS an act of War!

God bless this brave American soul, and give comfort to his whole family...despicable!

If we had a real president, the border would be locked down tight immediately.

Be careful out there, my friend.

Thank you for the ping, BG, and Amen to the sentiments about praying for this man’s family and all our border agents.

God bless these brave agents on the front lines of our home security. They deserve and need much more support than they are getting from our government.

So the Narcos are testing to see what kind of resistance they get. If they can kill a BP agent, and the Kenyan starts babbling about how this agent was "stupid" or something, why then they'll know: the weaklings can be pushed.

After that, the tidal wave.
