"El Paso still remains a very safe large city."

Yep, sounds like it.

You have to be crazy to go near the border.

I think it was a “Fast and Furious” weapon Mr Attorney General. A bunch of AR 15s were part of the scheme.

A woman pushing her child in a stroller in downtown El Paso, Texas, was struck by an assault rifle bullet...

...A bullet -- a type used in assault weapons such as M16s -- penetrated and exited the woman's calf, he said.

St00pid reporting. Because the round recovered was .223 (5.56 mm) doesn't mean that it's an "assualt rifle bullet."

No problem it is nothing just a Mexican having some fun..That is what Obama and Holder want you to believe..

Here even the Mexicans will warn you about going into Mexico or near there..The stupid spring break kids are still going after being warned to stay away.they have also told them if they do go to stay near the Hotels..

The city of El Paso is only nominally under U.S. sovereignty. This incident was merely one Mexican national shooting another Mexican national in de facto Mexican territory..

Anyone know what percentage of shooting victims are innocent passersby to criminal shootouts?

Apparently the woman in this case is okay, and thankfully the child in the stroller was not hit.

The cases that get me the angriest are the shootouts between rival gangs that end up killing some little kid or any innocent passerby.

The woman was “struck by an assault rifle bullet....”

The author is to be congratulated on his amazing psychic powers; he is, at the very least, clairvoyant.

One wonders, then, why he did not identify the perpetrator to the police.
