Mexican officials are condemning the shooting of a young Mexican citizen by a U.S. Border Patrol agent Saturday near Veteran International Bridge in Brownsville.
The Mexican Foreign Relations Ministry has questioned the way the U.S. government handles security along the U.S.-Mexico border.
The agency states the shooting happened Saturday near the Veterans International Bridge in Brownsville. It also reports the Mexican Consulate in Brownsville is assisting the young mans family in having the incident investigated.
Two Border Patrol agents, in separate incidents, fired off their service weapons in self defense Saturday morning after coming under attack, authorities said.
One agent fired his weapon after someone began throwing rocks at him along the river.
The second agent observed a person aiming a gun at him and also fired his service weapon in self defense.
A press release from the Border Patrol described the incidents as two dangerous encounters.
It is unknown which incident lead to the death of the Mexican citizen.
The Border Patrol is expected to address the issue this afternoon at a press conference.
Don't take a rock to a gun fight.
...sorry for the family's loss, but when you do the wrong thing, bad things happen.
Stop,please stop. I can't take it any more. I can't breath. Stop. Oh, stop.
stay away from the border
Let me fix the article
“The governmrnt of Mexico lodged a complaint today following an assault on American Border Patrol agents resulted in the death of an attempted invader.
The Mexican government, who has long sent the illegal invaders to America in order to take pressure off their crippled economy, is upset that it’s proxy was killed in full accordance with thousands of years of international laws and treaties.”
There. Now we have a more accurate article.
Recently there was a story here about Mexican death in re to Fast&Furious and the not to subtle subtext was Americans should feel sorrow for the deaths of Mexicans. I said I’d weep when Mexicans wept for all the deaths of Americans caused by Mexican illegals and I was chastised for it. I still hold to my opinion. I detest Mexico and it’s people for their criminal sloth and their criminal arrogance in invading our country and their monumental hypocrisy.
Mexico needs to put in a 10 mile free fire zone on the south side of the border.
Then, Mexico, do something to keep your own d*mned citizens under control.
It’s obvious we cannot control ours...at least not until the upcoming Revolution II.
Then watch it, our libs will be going down your way to get their corruption fixes.
“It is unknown which incident lead to the death of the Mexican citizen.”
You’re right. Canada is like having Ward Cleaver for neighbor; Mexico, on the other hand—if Mexico a person it would be `Cousin Eddie’, if Eddie were a drunken, violent felon, convicted of numerous restraining orders and vehicular homicides, murders, rapes, burglaries, thefts, DUIs, etc.
A deadly weapon is any weapon which can kill. That could be a rock and also blunt instruments like clubs, baseball bats, monkey wrenches, an automobile or any object which actually causes death ... the Philistine giant Goliath was killed by a stone from David’s sling.
If our leaders had any stones they would respond to Mexico’s crocodile tears with the statement:
“Any Mexican citizens attacking our LEO’s, in any way whatsoever that in their subjective judgement involves a threat to them of death or severe bodily harm, will be fired upon.”
But that won’t happen. Obama and Nappy will cut a check to the family with several zeros in it, and other Mexican brats will be emboldened to commit future attacks on our border patrolmen.
It’s like Zero’s policy of de facto amnesty: Rewarding Bad Behavior Encourages More Bad Behavior.
Most of us know this without needing embroidered into a wall sampler.
The Demoblicans, however, don’t have a clue, or worse, don’t give a damn about the brave men and women guarding our southwestern border.
And here we told them CBP guys to run or use bean bags.
What about the 300+ dead Mexicans who have been killed using guns smuggled to the drug cartels by the Obama regime?
Where does the Mexican government stand on that?
