Border Patrol fired upon from Mexico

Tuesday, two Border Patrol agents investigating four bundles of marijuana, totaling over 300 pounds, piled on the banks of the Rio Grande near Donna Texas were fired upon by smugglers firing from the Mexican side of the border. The agents were able to find cover and return fire. It is unknown if anyone was injured on the Mexican side (Border patrol needs to send their agents back to the range for more practice if you ask me.) This is on the heels of a similar shootout back on January 17th in the same area. I wonder if Johnny Sutton is going to prosecute these guys too....

I'd say they were firing at "river-rats". Target practice!

If they hit any of the smugglers they can expect to be prosecuted for violating their civil rights.

Jason, that is exactly what worries me. Cops aren't stupid, it doesn't take too many cases like Campion's and Ramos' to get the message across that cops are to just sit in their vehicles and not prosecute these thugs or they'll end up in the hoosegow too. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. OR ELSE. That is exactly the WRONG message IFAIAC.

What that is telling me is that the ungodly amounts of money that are tied up in the drug/human smuggling trade is making itself felt in every level of government. The smugglers have bought enough politicians, up to and including the chief executive, to grease the skids. Our government is now no better than the Mexican one, bought and paid for by the criminals.
