The War on Drugs is acquiring new meaning as the Mexican drug violence spills across our unsecured border.

Bag their hands to see who has powder residue on them.
Shooting at an aircraft should be an even more serious offense than shooting at one person.

I think this was ground patrol but nonetheless.. Why don’t the Sheriff’s vehicles (or Sheriff’s) have GPS on them? (maybe costs are an issue) It took over an hour for authorities to locate him.. He could’ve died in that time.

You are permitted to summarize a story whose source will not allow excerpts. In this case three of the arrested match descriptions of the perps. The deputy has been released from the hospital. Choppers participating in the search for the shooters took fire from the ground.

some ‘border crossing experts’ (illegal aliens) are about to learn the difference between shooting a cop in Mexico and shooting an LEO in the USA.

Shooting at the copters? Plural?

This is an act of war. The druggies have declared war, thus the area is a battleground. Same rules should apply by Arizona law agencies until the border is secured. Innocents? Stay out!!!

FTO: “Three of those captured overnight Friday matched descriptions from the wounded Pinal County deputy and were being questioned Saturday, sheriff’s Lt. Tamatha Villar said.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I wish we could have seen them captured, as our POTUS continues to ridicule Arizona on national TV!

Isn’t this the SAME county where the Sheriff won’t enforce the new law and blasted the AZ governor and legislature over the bill? His deputies should arrest him for STUPIDITY!

This is Pinal County different Sheriff. Sheriff Dupnik (DumbPick) is Pima County; that's the one you are thinking of.

Bump to your summarization.

AP stories must be excerpted. AZ Daily Star articles cannot be posted at all. Just a link and/or a summary.

I agree. Here in USA they get three hots and a cot. Plus a team of ACLU lawyers and an obedient mob of liberal protesters to intimidate the unfortunate jurors. We are so screwed.

The deputy reported he'd been shot with an AK-47. I'm waiting to hear whether it was a genuine, full-auto AK-47, or the semi-auto version. It would be helpful to know. We'd have some idea whether it was a drug cartel hit, or just an armed illegal alien.

And, three of them were identified by the Deputy as being involved in the drug deal - I wonder if one of those three was the one who shot him?

Motorola makes a hand held radio with a GPS in the microphone, but it totally eats up your battery life.

Until they find the right guys they are going to be profiling like mad. I bet they are picking up every Spanish speaking guy they find with an AK-47.

A backlash over the law has erupted, with civil rights activists, concerned it will lead to racial profiling, calling for protests and boycotts.

A media created Backlash! A media astroturf job! A media supported act of sedition! An occupation media that has plunged to new depths of evil and treason!

My apologies. I confused the AZ Daily Star with azcentral.com.

You won’t find azcentral.com on the copyright page, but the posting software will not let you post an article from there.

I have mentioned that anomaly, as well as some others, to Jim Rob but he seems unwilling to update the copyright page for some reason.

WRT AP, this is from the copyright page at the end of the article right before the comments: “All material from the Associated Press must be excerpted regardless of source (very brief excerpts).”
