Border Patrol agents shoot and injure two suspected illegal immigrants
KVOA TUCSON ^ | 6/5/10 | Unspecified

NEAR SAN MIGUEL, Ariz. - Two suspected illegal immigrants are being treated for gunshot wounds at a Tucson hospital after being shot by Border Patrol Agents early this morning.

It happened on the reservation near San Miguel. Border Patrol tells us at least two agents were forced to fire after being pelted by rocks. At this time, Border Patrol does not think the suspects received life-threatening injuries. No agents were injured.

The FBI is now investigating. No other information is available at this time.

Attempted murder charges to be filed soon against the agents. Personally delivered by Eric Holder.

“The FBI is now investigating.”

Now there’s trouble.
Those Border Patrol agents are going to be charged.
After all, being pelted with rocks isn’t life threatening..
/ sarc.

Besides, Obama and co are upset with anything that shortens to the initials BP.

Investigating what? To see if they are illegally here? Hopefully, not the one doing it's job.

I’m guessing the border patrol agents will get 20 years.

At this point I say screw it.....just shoot them as they come in!

They, and our “federal government” have been SO lawless, why the heck can’t we.

Bring back the Old West.....at least until we get things under control.

You got it! BO is sitting on a contaminated wasteland of one sort or another all the way from San Diego to Florida now. It's all Bush's, I mean BP's fault!

Unfortunately, you're probably right. Holder should investigate the law-breakers in the WH.

I am so sick of the term illegal immigrants. They are CRIMINAL BORDER CROSSERS.

All joking aside, these guys are gonna get strung up like the previous Border Patrol guys who were doing their job.
(Compean and Ramos iirc.)

For what you suggest this is probably going to be a target rich environment http://azstarnet.com/news/state-and-regional/article_7df9b460-09e0-5bfa-b26a-44a29f52087a.html

Hey, if they don’t tamper with evidence and lie about it, they should be ok. (Unlike Ramos and Compean).

That’s also assuming teh Feeb will do an honest investigation.
Remember, Holder is their master at the moment as well.
And the official position is that it’s okay to violate FEDERAL immigration law.

If they are being investigated by the FBI, those border agents are toast.

Wish it could be said that we didn’t have to fear the border agents would get charged.

We’ll see. My only comment regards whether they followed procedure. If they followed procedure and get prosecuted, they’re screwed.

“If they followed procedure and get prosecuted, they’re screwed.”

That’s what I’m afraid of, but it will also show this administration for what they are.

FBI guy: Those BP Agents are screwing up our statistics report about the border area being safer now.

Media guy: Well then lets make the immigrants look like innocent bystanders and the BP Agents like trigger happy felons.

There’s a major storm brewing on the border from CA to TX and it’s gonna be nasty.

Water, and any electricity AZ produces and transmits that way.
Seriously, AZ residents could put that water and electricity to MUCH better use.

Kick Holder and the FBI out of AZ. It is time to start the revolution. Peaceful is BS. Offer the two border patrol agents a job in Joe’s army.

There was another one they tried to get here in Tucson about 1-2 years ago (Nicholas Corbett). Both were hung/mistrials.

Yowch.
There was not too long ago an ad in the papers here for applicants for the Border Patrol.
With the way things go these days one wonders the sanity of deciding to be Border Patrol.

Have these guys heard of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean?

It's good to see some of the DD crew together like this.
And no, we agreed that we're all stalking me.. or some such.

While driving south of Tucson a few weeks back, saw lots of Border Patrol action with numerous cars being pulled over. After passing one such pull over, noticed a stopped car on an over pass with its rear door open. Looked like they were filming the Border Patrol. Was going to go back and inform the Border Patrol, but the car pulled away as I drove under the over pass.
