FBI: Mexicans chased away US agents after shooting

FBI: Mexicans chased away US agents after shooting

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico (AP) – Pointing their rifles, Mexican security forces chased away U.S. authorities investigating the shooting of a 15-year-old Mexican by a U.S. Border Patrol agent on the banks of the Rio Grande, the FBI and witnesses told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The killing of the Mexican by U.S. authorities – the second in less than two weeks – has exposed the distrust between the two countries that lies just below the surface, and has enraged Mexicans who see the death of the boy on Mexican soil as an act of murder.

FBI: Mexicans chased away US agents after shooting

I am going to graphically point something out for the bleeding hearts that DO read here but have never worn a uniform, carried a gun for a living or never became involved in a violent confrontation of ANY sort: The AP is a left wing hack source and they are playing on the sympathies OF the bleeding hearts.

Look at how the AP reference the dead Mexican a ‘the boy’. That’s a media ploy and an attempt to garner sympathy for the poor child that was brutally murdered by those vile Americans.

Anyone that has ever been in law enforcement, or in a combat situation in the military KNOWS that this is a FACT: A child can, and will, in many cases, kill you quicker than an adult. That is NOT a supposition, that, my friends is the truth.

Mexico’s government says the number of Mexicans injured by U.S. immigration authorities has increased this year.

May I make a suggestion? Keep your Mexican asses on YOUR side of the border and our mean old Immigration people won’t have to take issue with you. Stay in Mexico and all you have to worry about then is drug cartels and corrupt Mexican police, soldiers and public officials.

Shortly after the boy was shot, Mexican security forces arrived at the scene and pointed their guns at the Border Patrol agents across the riverbank while bystanders screamed insults and hurled rocks and firecrackers, FBI spokeswoman Andrea Simmons said. She said the agents were forced to withdraw.

“It pretty quickly got very intense over on the Mexican side,” she said, adding that FBI agents showed up later and resumed the investigation, even as Mexican authorities pointed guns at them from across the river.

In a perfect world, not one being run under the premise that we must maintain political correctness and diplomatic decorum at all times, but in a perfect world, one where Americans were actually allowed to dispatch threats to this nation, where OUR guys could have the freedom to do what Americans are supposed to do, remove ALL threats, and defend this nation against all enemies, this would NOT have taken place!

Simmons said the forces were soldiers, but Mexico’s Defense Secretary later released a statement saying soldiers were not present at the reported confrontation.

Enrique Torres, spokesman for the joint federal, state and municipal police operation in Chihuahua, said federal and local Mexican police were at the scene but not any soldiers.

Soldiers, Federales, state or local Mexican police, it makes NO difference, Mexicans with guns, pointed at U.S. Border Patrol and FBI Agents, is NOT going to be an acceptable happening to at least HALF of this nation. Of course the *other* half of this nation is either the aforementioned bleeding hearts or ILLEGALS that haven’t been deported yet. So, quite obviously, those are the readers that the AP is playing to with this particular story.

The Mexican authorities accused the Americans of trying to recover evidence from Mexican soil and threatened to kill them if they crossed the border, prompting both sides to draw their guns, said the 16-year-old boy who asked not to be further identified for fear of reprisal.

BULL SHIT! Uh wait, I have to be politically correct and racially sensitive. TORO CACA!

A U.S. official close to the investigation told the AP that authorities have a video showing that the Border Patrol agent did not cross into Mexico. In fact, the official said, the video shows what appear to be members of Mexican law enforcement crossing onto the U.S. side, picking something up and returning to Mexico. The official was not cleared to speak about the video and spoke only on condition of anonymity.

Drug-torn Mexico favors scrapping municipal police

Drug-torn Mexico favors scrapping municipal police

MEXICO CITY (AP) – Mexico’s president is urging approval of a plan to replace local police departments with state forces so the government can better fight unrelenting drug violence that has claimed nearly 23,000 lives.

Part of the goal is to root out corruption by replacing generally low-paid, poorly educated local police, who are seen as more susceptible to bribery and intimidation by the powerful cartels.

Drug-torn Mexico favors scrapping municipal police

If the goal is to root out corruption, forget about it. Mexico is the definition of corruption.

It also aims to streamline operations and improve communication between police, President Felipe Calderon told a public safety commission Thursday before it approved the plan at the end of a three-hour session.

And it will expedite the movement of money through the hierarchy of Mexican government.

“We want a safe Mexico in which there is no room for the fear, violence and impunity that we suffer today,” Calderon said.

Sounds great Mr. Calderon, a safe Mexico, something that has NEVER before existed. Ever!

Mexico’s Public Safety secretary first floated the idea last year, but it received a lukewarm response because some officials worried that it would be hard to police many of Mexico’s 2,439 municipalities if local departments were eliminated. Only 12 of Mexico’s 31 states even have their own police forces.

Mexico’s idea of State Police is an infusion of Federales. Mexican army troops. Supposedly ones not yet fallen into the clutches of the cartels. Supposedly.

What I see in the making is a federalization of the Mexican police and a military buildup that will, in many cases, be very close to our border.

OUR border! A border that is already terribly undermanned and poorly defended. The inclusion of 1,200 National Guard troops along our border, unarmed troops I might add, as proposed by Barack Hussein Obama, will do NOTHING to alleviate the dangers we face from Mexico already, never mind the idea of Federales running wild along our borders as well.

There are already stories in the news of Mexican army troops making side trips over the U.S. border SOURCE 1 SOURCE 2 and confronting a U.S. Border Patrol agent. SOURCE 3 SOURCE 4

This is NOT news, it happened in 2004, 2005, 2006 and quite likely is still happening if the media were allowed to make a full and unbiased report.

So far, the military and federal police have led the war against drug cartels launched shortly after Calderon took office in December 2006.

Hot damn, they have led the charge and waged the war. Can anyone tell me what progress has been made? Does Mexico have any less drug traffic or cartel violence today than it had prior to Calderon taking office? It seems that the cartels are going outside the normal channels and are getting themselves some hired help, some type of mercenary help perhaps? SOURCE

And to give further citation to my belief that there isn’t an honest cop or soldier in Mexico, many troops have already made the change over to the other side. Money, food, luxury, those are some serious motivation for a Mexican army trooper, even Officers are moving over to the side of the cartels, the incentives are just too good to pass for them! SOURCE

A recent high-profile campaign to fight extortion and kidnapping by compiling a registry of cell phone users around the country ended up going awry, however, after the users’ personal data turned up for sale on two websites.

Prosecutors are investigating, Interior Department spokesman Luis Estrada said Thursday.

Prosecutors are investigating? That’s funny, I don’t care who you are, that’s funny right there!

Mexican prosecutors can’t find a tortilla in Juarez. The list from the registry was probably sold, by someone already working for the Mexican government in conjunction with the cartels, if not actually working FOR the cartels and doing the old Double Agent thing too.

The mayor of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico’s deadliest city with 2,601 drug-related killings reported last year, backed Calderon’s proposal and said municipal police are often easy prey in small, close-knit towns.
