Bureau of Land Management warns motorists who travel along I-8
KVOA TUCSON ^ | 6/16/10 | Lupita Murillo

TUCSON - Warnings are out in parts of Arizona warning alerting you of possible danger.

The Bureau of Land Management is putting up signs, along Interstate 8 between Gila Bend and Stanfield.

Kathy Pedrick from the Bureau of Land Management says the signs went up because of recent incidents along the border south of I-8.

She says, "there was a Pinal County Sheriff's deputy shot at, there's been some homicides recently with some of the smugglers."

The signs warn the public they could encounter smugglers or individuals who may be armed.

Gilbert Meehl believes the signs are a good idea especially for those who aren't familiar with the area. He says, "those who pull off the road from another state to take their picture with a cactus and they travel down one of these roads, there's no telling what they can run into."

Sigh, as parts of our country become overtaken by illegals and drug smugglers, our leaders ignore what's going on.

Like the “no go” zones in the French suburbs, where even the police stay out.

Tell The One and Napolitano that the illegal aliens are attempting register as Republicans and the border will be closed in minutes.

I have a solution for this problem.

Designate this area as an IRAQ/Afghanistan LIVE FIRE training area for the Army and Marines. Safties off, free fire zone.

Strangely enough, most of the illegals are against abortion and gay marriage. If that fact ever becomes widely known the perverts in Washington will close the border!

” “those who pull off the road from another state to take their picture with a cactus and they travel down one of these roads, there's no telling what they can run into.””

When a person thinks about that statement; they should get angry.
This is the United States; not a outlaw Gypsy province of Hungary.
A traveler from Indiana or Iowa SHOULD be able to safely get and take their picture by a cactus plant along a road while on vacation.
The fact that they can't; illustrates we have a serious problem.
My family is looking for places to go in December for a family vacation. Southern Arizona is a place I would like to look at.
And I really don't want to carry a handgun on vacation.

One day very soon, a landowner along the border or a known drug corridor is going to take the laws into his own hands and pull a Bernie Goetz on a few illegals who are trespassing/threatening the landowners life.

We are on our own when it comes to protector our lives.

Yeah but anytime the range sensors detect something on the range, animal or human, range operations is halted; and it shouldn’t be.

It is an absolute outrage that part of our country is no longer for “Americans”. Can the governor call out the national guard for this? I know Washington won’t. Isn’t the military used to squash foreign aggressors? This just makes me sick.

Ditch the stupid signs and get the National Guard, locked and loaded along the border with an effective double fence. Take any smuggler or drug lord down hard (meaning shot dead) that we find.

Detain and put to hard work any illegal who simply tries to cross...and engage with full and maximum force any corrupt Mexican army or LEO units in league with the druggies or smugglers who either cross over or engage us from their side.

“And I really don’t want to carry a handgun on vacation.”

A handgun is just a substitute for a sword - a close quarters, last ditch weapon, usable to fight your way to the rifle you should have with you in such places.

This is a very pretty area too, in my opinion, full of saguaros and rolling hills. We’ve driven through there so many times to get to LA and San Diego, a much prettier drive than on I-10.

Indeed, sounds like a good place for a hunting trip!

Of course, this Regime will come down like a ton of bricks on anyone trying to defend themselves from the Southern Invasion.
