Skip to comments.CONFIRMED: Border Agent Terry Was FORCED TO USE BEANBAGS Against Armed Mexican Killers...

The outrageous rumors were true.
Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was forced to use beanbags against armed Mexican killers before he was shot dead in Arizona in December.
Agent Brian Terry was forced to defend himself and this country with beanbags.
The Arizona Daily Star reported:
Border Patrol agents shot beanbags at a group of suspected bandits before the men returned fire during a confrontation in a remote canyon, killing agent Brian Terry with a single gunshot, records show.
And an illegal immigrant wounded in the gunbattle who is now the only person in custody linked to the slaying contends he never fired a shot, according to FBI search warrant requests filed in the U.S. District Court in Tucson.
The documents provide the most detailed version yet of what happened in the deadly gunbattle Dec. 14 in Peck Canyon, northwest of Nogales.
The documents say the group of illegal border entrants refused commands to drop their weapons after agents confronted them at about 11:15 p.m. Two agents fired beanbags at the migrants, who responded with gunfire. Two agents returned fire, one with a long gun and one with a pistol, but Terry was mortally wounded in the gunfight.
Border Patrol officials declined to answer questions about protocol for use of force, citing the ongoing investigation.
But Terrys brother, Kent Terry, said the other agents who were there that night told him that they were instructed to use the non-lethal beanbags first. Its a policy that doesnt make sense to Kent Terry.
You go up against a bandit crew that is carrying AKs, and you walk out there with guns loaded with beanbags I dont get it, Terry said in a phone interview from Michigan. Its like going to the Iraqi war with one knife. It boggles my mind. These guys (Border Patrol agents) are professionals; they should be able to use their judgment call on their own.
But, dont worry. Barack Obama says the border is as safe today as its ever been.
and NO ONE will be fired.....
When shooting Mexicans, you shouldn’t use beanbags anyway. It’s racist.
Holder would have probably sued the agents had they used real bullets.
LOL! Post of the day!
All thanks to the damn Beanbag in the White House!
Now I know what Dt. Dew out the nose feels like.
Progressive dream unfolding in front of our eyes...
How much you want to bet they wouldn’t be forced to use bean bags against the Tea Party?
Un-FN-believable. I damn feel sorry for the Terry family who had to put up with this GD idiot administration. Anyone here on FR would have blasted these mexican scumfks with their own firearms if the situation was different.
Not mentioned in the article is ATF’s active and complicit role in the murder of the Agent.
Americans are just sitting ducks these days- Arizona, Mexico, Somalia coast, Germany...
All for the apparent “crime” of being American in the administration’s eyes.
I live in a country governed by traitors? FUBO.
The Border Patrol Agents mistook the bandits guns for tortillas. They were preparing to request backup cheese and salsa.
Thank God they weren’t forced to lob greaseballs at ‘em.
I'd make someone pay big if that was my kid.
The use of excessive force in the apprehension and destruction of the TEA party has been approved.
Someone needs to pay hard for this...
Meanwhile we’re being spammed hourly to stand up and march against Republican governors forced to balance state budgets.
We have an armed invasion of millions of dirtbags into this country and our border guards are armed with beanerbags?
“But Terrys brother, Kent Terry, said the other agents who were there that night told him that they were instructed to use the non-lethal beanbags first. Its a policy that doesnt make sense to Kent Terry.”
SUE THE LIVING HELL OUT OF THE OBAMA REGIME. THEN IMPEACH HIS FARGIN A$$.
Do you think any of the major networks or CNN will report this?
Our men on the USS Cole had no ammunition in their weapons either.
And our troops are getting military medals for
JUST DAMN DAMN DAMN
“How much you want to bet they wouldnt be forced to use bean bags against the Tea Party?”
Spot on. I’m sure the lethal force authorization was signed by Ogabe on his way from his basketball game to his nightly White Hut party.
I thought the agents were in an armored vehicle.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
“Someone needs to pay hard for this...”
I hear ya.
This is outrageous! Those agents - who are risking their lives to protect and defend our borders - should be authorized to use whatever means necessary.
I have been in the military and there have always been rules of engagement, but bean bags against an armed enemy. Did AG Holder come up with this?
Last I heard, our Marines in Afghanistan are forbidden to fire unless fired upon as well. Maybe we should just dress our soldiers up like Big Bird too, so the enemy can spot them quicker.
FUBO, and all your rat-bastard commie/dem friends. You are traitors to the republic. We need real, armed soldiers on the border with standing orders to DEFEND our nation from invasion, with deadly force when necessary.
This kind of numb-nutted BS has to have come from someone who has never been fired upon......Same kind of BS Rules of Engagement that has gotten our Servicemen killed overseas......
Imagine your son at the last moments trying to save his life firing beanbags and these ruthless Mexican killers, as they dropped him dead....Laughing it up....
We are being led by literally crazy people.
“Did AG Holder come up with this?”
Not sure- wouldn’t doubt it. I think Clownitano probably contributed heavily.
Btw, she just gave a speech saying the border is fine:
“During speech Monday at UTEP, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano insisted the U.S. border region is safer than most Americans believe, repeating what has become the mantra of the former Arizona governor.”
Whoever instituted this policy is a murderer. . . .
Update: I messed up- Napalitano’s speech was from February. I’m sure she hasn’t changed her views, though.
“When shooting Mexicans, you shouldnt use beanbags anyway. Its racist.”
Serious story but still funny.
That is correct. They should use wetbags.
Right you are DCB1. BATFE killed Agent Terry. I just wrote that a number of minutes ago in an email I sent. Boil away all the BS, and Agent Terry was killed by BATFE screwing around, and their scheme is blowing up in their faces as well. So damned sad Agent Terry had to die for a stupid scheme concocted by mentally impaired Leftist scum.
That's a good point. The agencies (not BP) didn't have to use bean bags against the Americans they murdered at Waco, Ruby Ridge, all the other places.
Janet Incompetano: “The system worked.”
Folks will probably not believe this, but after the USS Cole was bombed off Yemen, the sailors who rushed topside with weapons were REFUSED ammo.
You probably won’t believe that the reason was because the Captain wished to AVOID AN ACCIDENT.
That sounds unbelievable, right?
It’s also true that the USMC guards on duty in front of the HQ in Beirut, Lebanon during the Reagan years also had NO AMMO in their rifels, and that Hezbollah knew that.
Or taco tasers.
