If we had a POTUS with balls, the military would already be on the scene protecting U.S. citizens with shoot to kill orders.

Why do we tolerate this crap?

GRRRRRRRRRRR!

Investigator’s killing is unrelated to his investigation? Really, then what is his killing related to... bad tacos?

They just pile up the lies.

“Tiffany, says she and her husband were attacked by pirates on Falcon Lake on Sept. 30, while they were returning to the United States from Mexico on Jet Skis. Hartley was shot and presumably fell into the lake.”

So she just left him?

Note that this is an AP story. It’s on a Fox link, but it is an Associated Press story, and the Fox editors were too stupid to change the headline and rewrite the story accurately.

Take note of the AP stories in your local newspapers and in local media.

Note the headlines and content of paragraphs. And note how facts and analyis KNOWN BY THE AP REPORTER is not included or moved to the later paragraphs. And note how AP stories of conservative interest appear two or three days after the events, only after the conservative blogosphere makes it impossible for the MSM to ignore.

Call the news editors of your local media and get in their face about their lack of journalistic competence and integrity, for running AP stories without review, editing, and rewriting with objective factual reporting.

Supposedly there is a witness that saw her being chased after the shooting.

Down there, both she and the Jetski could be of great value.

She circles back & tried to pick up her husband & get him onto her jet ski. She is about 4’10” & he was much taller & heavier.

So, will Fox’s miserable failure and embarrassment, Geraldo Rivera—Gerald Michael Rivera, continue to argue that Hartley’s wife, Tiffany, has been making the story up?

Will Geraldo, an alleged rapist, continue to put American lives at stake, by defending the invasion of our country by illegal mexican aliens?

Meanwhile, Obama continues to hide under his desk and plans for his next vacation.

Mexican authorities stated they doubt the story of the woman who claims her husband was murdered, but they can’t investigate because of the risk of violence by the thugs in the area - now an investigator’s head is delivered to the Mexican Army - Yeah, nothing going on down there at all/s

According to her story she tried to pick him up onto her jet ski but the pirates were continuing to shoot at her so she had to abandon the effort and run for her life.

She got into the water and tried to pull him up on her ski, but she couldn't do it. He was a big man. In the mean time bullets were whizzing around her so she took off. What would you do?

Associate Press Headline and Lead Para:

Mexican Police Official Investigating
Border Lake Shooting Found Dead

AUSTIN, Texas — U.S. and Mexican authorities say
a Mexican state police commander investigating the
reported shooting of an American tourist on a border
lake plagued by pirates has been killed.

Here it is with a proper headline and lead para:

Mexican Drug Cartel Sends Severed Head to
Mexican Army and Message to Obama Administration

AUSTIN, Texas — The severed head of the lead
Mexican investigator looking into the murder of
an American citizen while jet-skiing on Lake Falcon,
was sent to Mexican authorities today. Bearing
all the marks of a Mexican drug cartel message of
intimidation, the severed head sends a message
both to any Mexican officials with thoughts of
taking on corruption in Mexican government, and
the Obama administration and its hands off policy
regarding criminal activity and violence along the
U.S. - Mexico border.

Both ways and they wouldn’t have been on the Mexican side sight seeing and taking pictures. Reckon if the border was closed to commercial traffic that the Mexican gov’t could find a way to help halt illegals and dope from coming this way?

FRiend, have you ever tried to lift the dead weight of a body out of the water and onto a Jet Ski, while you are in fear of losing your own life?

I’ve had to lift dead bodies into boats... it’s not easy and at the time, I was a very strong man being helped by at least one other guy.

She had no choice but to leave him.

No. She actually tried to get his body (about 250 lb. to her 125) onto her jet ski and failed, as shown by traces of his blood on her life vest. If you're curious about my estimates of their weight differnce, look at their pictures, on which I base my estimate.

Wasn’t it just yesterday we were being preached to about how drug use is a ‘victimless crime?’

I hate to agree with the Mexican govt about anything, but we DO have to control drug use in the USA. Its consumption is feeding this level of violent crime.

"Two U.S. congressmen from Texas said they had received grim details about Flores' demise. The investigator "was found decapitated," Rep. Henry Cuellar's office said, while Rep. Aaron Pena said Flores "was delivered by way of a suitcase to Mexican military police."

The Onion carried this story last week wherein every Mexican was killed in a massive shoot-out resulting in some 50 million dead. Started with a drug cartel shoot-out and progressed to there. Southern real estate now cheap!

It looks like it is time for some well trained militia/retired military/vigilantes to go down to the Mexican border and set up a sniper cross fire. Anyone caught on U.S. soil having not entered through proper custom checkpoints needs to be stopped permanently if you know what I mean. This invasion must be stopped. The lawless of the this narco-terrorists will not subside of its own volition. It will spread county to county if there is no repercussions to these heinous acts.

I cannot imagine how devastated this woman is. To see her husband bleeding out, trying desperately to get him up and she can’t do it. Knowing that if she left him he will surely die -and all the while his murderers are trying to kill her, or rape her.

For the rest of her life she is going to be haunted by this.
