“Border Patrol Agent Killed at Brian Terry Station in Arizona”
Two border patrol agents were shot at a patrol station in southern Arizona this morning, ABC15 News reports. One died from his wounds and the other was airlifted to a hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries.
The shooting occurred at Brian Terry Station, recently renamed after the last border patrol officer to be killed, in December 2010. Weapons found near the scene of the Terry shooting were linked to the U.S. government’s botched Fast and Furious operation.
Three agents were patrolling on horseback around 2 a.m. and went to investigate a tripped alarm from a sensor along the border, Cochise County Sheriff’s spokeswoman Carol Capas told ABC15 News. Two agents were shot while a third agent was unharmed. Capas said the authorities have not identified any suspects and do not know if the agents returned fire.
Under Barack Obama America is under attack by all our enemies, gangs, and other criminals. Obama’s bowing to Kings, apologizing for our greatness has made security for our nation more deadly than ever. This administration is melting before our eyes...with the world watching.
Prayers up for the families of the dead and for the wounded to survive and have a good life free of pain. Prayers for our nation. How much can we take? How much O Lord? God help us
The administration spent 76% more on foreign aid than border security. Surely, some of that money went to Mexico to enhance their ability to combat drug trafficking. I wonder if the BP’s Mexican counterparts were involved in this murder of another BP agent in Arizona? Obammy needs to go.
Frustrating: this could be an incident that is very genuine and without guile or a complete setup based on what the perpetrator knew would be the border patrol’s response to a tripped sensor.
On the other hand, the cynical side of my wonders if the sensor was tripped on purpose, knowing the border patrol would respond, then the perpetrator(s) lying in wait to ambush the agents.
In recent years, ICE / border patrol / BATF agents who disagreed or (God forbid!) filed a formal complaint have been mistreated to a point that is criminal, life-threatening, family threatening, etc.
Simple sensor trip, as the sensors are buried and hidden and not seen. They are way beyond the sensors we had in Vietnam, smaller, less intrusive, BURIED and able to detect all sorts of movements. The locations are secret.
Suspects in the shoot are running hard and will only die tired. Intel chatter from the cartels indicates the shooters will not live long if the cartels get them first. Cartels like to avoid killing Agents because to do so would be to bring down the thunder and wrath from gawd. Not economical to kill Agents because the BP would focus on that area and the controlling cartel would lose business to other cartels that will operate in areas of less focus.
We shall have a capture soon, I am sure. And the guys involved in the shoot, the Border Patrol Agents, are professionals, dedicated and had not been involved in whistle-blowing or some other such activities.
DO they use Mexican bed bugs like in Nam?
I say it was a planned event. 2 Oct. 1968 there was a big massacre in Mexico and the first battle of the Texas Revolution.
The real killers are in Mexico having a party.
Will Romney build the Fence?
