It should be a good shoot because the USBP is too often the target of thoughtless citizens to the South of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The U.S. needs to adopt a more aggressive policy towards those types of attacks and support our border officers.
    Did you know that Arab counties now have
    the N.R.A. (National Rock Association) on their side!

    I think you missed what he is saying....let me help..

    too much finger in the trigger will throw off your aim, hence, the hit in the stomach and not center mass. Hope that helps.

    Like I said, proper notifications were immediately made and it is within policy. This is not the first time this happens and it won't be the last. You just hear about cases when one of the above is allegedly not met and the agent gets railroaded. Believe it or not, not every agent gets hung out for doing his job.

    I have no problem with the shooting. I am concerned about what the Border Patrol will do.

    There was a clear escalation of force. Obviously the verbal commands to disperse went ignored and then it was raised to pepper balls and tear gas. Finally some idiot didn't get the picture and decided to escalate the situation further and picked up a blunt object and tried to it as projectile (rock) thus forcing the BP agent into a self defense mode.

    Some liberal might flap their gums on the news about how this is racist or something but I think 12 normal people on a jury will agree that the shoot was justified if it ever got that far.

    Anyone who doubts that, can come to my house, and I would be willing to conduct a practical exercise aimed at exhibiting the power and damage ability of a rock, thrown at their head...
