U.S. reviewing guidelines for use of force by border agencies
Los Angeles Times ^ | October 17, 2012 | By Richard Marosi

The Department of Homeland Security is reviewing guidelines for use of force by border agencies amid a sharp increase in agent-involved killings along the U.S.-Mexico border.

The scrutiny of U.S. Customs and Border Protection enforcement practices comes in response to a request by 16 members of Congress who expressed concern over the death of a Mexican man who suffered a fatal heart attack after being Tasered by a customs officer in 2010.

Among the letter's signees were Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-East Los Angeles), Bob Filner (D-Chula Vista), Joe Baca (D-Rialto) and Xavier Becerra (D-Los Angeles).

A congressional staffer said that the investigation began a month or two ago and that the report is not expected until sometime next year.

Let's dust off and repurpose and oldy but goody suddenly relevant for our border agents...

September, 2004

Sen. Zell Miller, the Georgia Democrat who delivered the Republican National Convention's keynote address Sept. 1, said Kerry "opposed" weapons including the B-1, B-2, F-14, F-15, and Apache helicopters. "This is the man who wants to be the Commander in Chief of our US Armed Forces?" Miller exclaimed. "Armed with what? Spitballs?"

Ours military over seas and law enforcement on our streets and borders are seriously endangered as a result of the progressive movement.

These law makers share the philosophy with the administration that we are bad. As they continue placing our people in harms way without a means of defense as in Libya, they can lie to the American people claiming our border is secure and we have defeated the terrorists.

What can you even say to this? ‘homeland’ sounds like nazi-frikking Germany. I don’t even like the sound of it. Never did. It was so wrongheaded my brain reels trying to figure out why ANYONE ever thought that a another bureaucracy would be anything OTHER than another overstaffed, dunderheaded BUREAUCRACY that only exists to expand its own power.

My ROE:

1) If they’re illegally entering the US, SHOOT-ON-SIGHT!
2) Lather, rinse, repeat as necessary.

Predicted this a long time ago.

The people writing the legislation are the co-nationals of the people getting shot at.

When you let your enemies through the gate, and then let them pretend to be part of your nation, this is what happens.

It's called invasion and takeover.

Of course, in previous generations it was called Sedition and Treason as well, but those are derided as outdated concepts...by people like Baca, Becerra and Roybal.

These liberal hyphenates will NEVER allow us to secure that border. They don’t have enough useful idiots like this one yet.

Illegal alien charged with indecent assault, videotaping in Massachusetts

Oct. 18, 2012

On Monday, Mauricio Lisboa-Gomes, 26, was arraigned in Lawrence District Court on charges of indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or over and photographing an unsuspecting nude or partially nude person.

The Brazilian national was arrested last Friday by North Andover police, after an 18-year-old female co-worker at J&M Convenience Store and Deli, located at 701 Salem Street, discovered a recording device placed in the employee bathroom.

The woman noticed an iPod touch device on a supply shelf inside the restroom. She picked it up and saw that the “red recording indicator was flashing,” according to the police report.

She took the device to her boss and reported not only this incident, but a series of creepy advances from Lisboa-Gomes.

The victim told police that within the month she has been working with the accused “that something was going on with Mauricio in regard to her because she had noticed that every time she would go to use the bathroom he would go in first, telling her it was important that he went first.”
Under questioning, Lisboa-Gomes admitted to police that he has been living and working in the United States illegally for the last six years.

Lisboa-Gomes has pleaded not guilty and his next court appearance is scheduled for November 13.

Of course, this is not the first time an illegal alien has been accused of videotaping young women without their knowledge...

In March 2011, Cobb County (GA) police arrested Alejandro Paniagua Pretega, 28, after a witness told reported the illegal alien following a shopper around the Kmart on Mableton Parkway, trying to videotape under the woman’s skirt without her knowledge.

According to the arrest report, Pretega followed the woman around the store for several minutes and had footage of her on his camera when he was taken into custody.[snip]

“STINKING COMMUNISTS EVERY ONE OF THEM!!!!!”

And on top of that, they’re self confessed socialists. All are members of the ‘socialist caucus’. When I tell people about that, they simply refuse to believe it. Must be comforting to be so blindly loyal.

Needs repeated until people get it through their thick skulls!

That was my take, too, from the start, Rodina, Fatherland, "Homeland" all have that Marxist ring to them...

I figure when they finally secure the borders, it will be to keep us in...
