Posted on 04/02/2014 8:15:48 AM PDT by 12th_Monkey
Breitbart Texas has reported extensively on the left-of-center campaign to restrict the ability of Border Patrol agents to defend themselves and on the false narratives such open-borders advocates use in their political and media attacks against the men and women of the Border Patrol.
The reality being far from the false narrative of "kids throwing pebbles," the life-threatening rock attacks against Border Patrol agents often occur in remote areas when a solitary Border Patrol agent may be up to a 90-minute drive from their nearest backup. The solitary Border Patrol agent's radio often does not work due to insufficient communications infrastructure along the U.S./Mexico border--leaving the agent alone and unable to call for help. The attacks often come from illegal immigrants trafficking drugs or human beings, or from illegal immigrants trying to divert the attention and resources of the Border Patrol in an effort to assist drug and human traffickers.
The below images were provided to Breitbart Texas from Homeland Security Today. The images show injuries to Border Patrol agents, damage to Border Patrol vehicles, and some of the large rocks used in such attacks. They graphically reveal the reality of such rock attacks and the risks such attacks pose to the very lives of U.S. Border Patrol agents.

Mexican thugs taking a page from the palee intifadas.
This is war. These assaults MUST be stopped.
What happens if an American citizen throws rocks at cops? Not only are illegals encourage to break the law, they are rewarded for it. They are protected from any kind of retalliation. Sickening.
“Choot ‘im Elidabet! Choot ‘im!!!”
Too bad our southern border with Mexico, isn’t the same terrain as the swamps of LA, gators and all.
This is proof that government has it’s head up their @$$. To announce that you can’t use deadly force against a rock thrower just encourages more rock throwers. Simple logic for regular people, beyond the grasp of the elected.
sign of a weak and dying nation and culture
People were killing people with rocks long before guns came along...
To hell with the illegals and the ACLU!
what happens to an american citizen who doesn’t comply to a verbal command? they get shot. thug, or confused, or deaf, or suffering a diabetic/blood sugar problem....
it’s a culture under siege, it ain’t dying, people are declaring war against it.
Maybe John F’n Kerry can arrange to arm our border protectorate with spit wads.
When BP was told they were not to consider rocks deadly force and could not defend themselves from rocks that was my first thought. Rocks are considered deadly weapons and have been for many years, throw rocks at any LEO and you can get fired on. Just another example of the special treatment our fearless leaders want to give illegals. Don’t lose sight of the fact that rock throwers, human traffickers, drug smugglers, criminals of every sort- murderers, rapists, ID theft...will be able to get amnesty if we can’t stop that idea...

Same vilification campaign has been conducted against Israel for decades. Thanks 12th_Monkey.
In some places I have been south of Van Horn I was 2 hours from backup.
The media loves to infer the rocks are hand thrown only. She said the mexicans used catapults and large sling shots made of inner tubes to launch the rocks.
Rocks can be as deadly as a gun. Shooting back is self defense.
all Obama wants to do is protect those undocumented Democrats, border patrol be damned.
In the real world.
But in liberal world everybody hugged and got alone before conservatives, Christians and heterosexuals came along.
I agree. let’em line up and let me throw rocks at them
khrushchev banging his shoe comes to mind.
Hinze catchup packages.
Bradley, HE rounds. Just need a couple
It’s an under reported war, invasion going on. It’s only going to get worse has amnesty is pushed and Republican cave.
Glad she got out.
I guess the liberals don’t know about stoning, since the Bible burns them if they pick it up.
Goliath was killed by a mere rock thrower.
The standard Mideastern sling, like the one David used to kill Goliath, is altogether about 6 feet long with a rock pouch in the center. The two lines are folded back with the projectile in the center pouch. The thrower then spins the rock in the sling over his head, developing a velocity of about 100 m.p.h. Then he releases one of the two lines, sending the projectile toward its target at lethal velocity. Just about all ancient armies had whole units of swingers, who were very effective special troops. No way rock throwing isn’t lethal.
DHS tells American border guards to run away from illegal immigrants hurling rocks at them, fleeing in vehicles
