Would it be legal and moral for the sheriff to shoot the damned thing down?

I could understand being in hot pursuit, but they should have radioed ahead.

We sent Stingers to the mujaheddin in Afghanistan in the ‘80s. Why can’t we do that now in South Texas?

‘Bush’s fault’, said the White House Press Office.

“I an trying to determine why our Air Force didn’t shoot it down.”

Or at least forced to land, chopped up and shipped back in small boxes.

I’d shoot the foreign aircraft down. It’d be interesting to see who our gov’t sides with.

Witnesses there say the chopper hovered over a home that used to belong to a drug dealer before flying back to Mexico.


Who owns the home now?

Sorry but since when does the Air force shoots down foreign planes and helicopters “only” because they cross their air space? As long you are not at war with this country it´s pretty normal just to “intercept” them and then escort them out of the Air space.

Is it legal to shoot at or shoot down a aircraft that is not authorized to be in this country by Joe Sixpack?

My guess is one of their drug dealers tried to flee the country without the proper government payoffs, so they were trying to “extradite” him back.

Bush had 8 years to build a fence.
I’ll leave it at that.

You could launch a rocket at it carrying a wire cable so the cable will tangle in the main or tail rotors.
