CAMPO - A U.S. Border Patrol agent was fatally shot in Campo near the border with Baja California Thursday night.
The shooting was reported about 9:15 p.m. near the border on Shockey Truck Trail southeast of the San Diego Sheriff Department's Campo substation.
Four engines, paramedics, and a medical helicopter were dispatched to the area, but the agent was declared dead at the scene, according to Cal Fire Battalion Chief Nick Schuler.
Police report that the victim was shot in the head.
just killing the cops Americans won’t kill.
"This area has been a busy drug and alien smuggling corridor for decades. There is not much more than a landing mat fence and a drag road in the area. No further information is available at this time."
We need to take lessons from the East Germans and build a wall...from the Pacific to the Gulf...that is just like theirs.The only difference would be that the machine guns would point outward instead of inward.
I’m guessing there won’t be much news on this since it doesn’t fit the administration agenda.
I’m sure the border cop acted “stupidly”
Well, it didn’t make the front page of the Union-Tribune this morning. However, the harbor seal take over of the children’s pool at La Jolla made the top of the page. The UT doing its best to keep us informed of the issues that really matter. /sarc
Fox might cover it. Page 32 in the L.A.Times
It saddens me that Mexico has serious problems, but dammit, I am sick of DC NOT fulfilling their Constitutional duty of protecting our borders. Innocent civilians are gunned down here in OUR country by these animals, now they are killing Federal agents. I am not sure on the machine gun idea, but I do support the idea of hunting down these animals, put them in prison and execute them. Permanantly rehabilitated. Because of DC’s inaction, I am forced to carry a pistol and them the AG tags me as a terrorist threat. Nice.
Very sad, prays for his family. BUILD THE Damn Wall!
I also support being proactive, this is a huge problem for this country and a major bank buster for California. The only thing about your comment I would change is, hunt them down and then execute them. Forget the prison, that’s already part of the problem.
Thanks for the info.
God Bless this B.P. Agent and may he R.I.P.
.....oh...THAT was good....very pithy!!!
