    Our guys would already be in jail, convicted by the media, ACLU, sharpton and whomever else could see an opportunity it. The Mexican guys will most likely be deemed as heroes, given medals and a few extra pesos on their next check.

        Oh, no. Most Federales carry automatic weapons.

          Mexico can shoot our unarmed civilians crossing the border illegally and no one in our government bats an eye yet if we even considered the same we would every human rights organization storming the White House in addition to a full scale Mexican Army invasion.
          Up until 1972, this was standard practice. Then if the people were still alive and not Mexicans, they were charged will "Illegal Entry"

            I'd be willing to bet that a good portion of those cars down there came out of Modesto, CA. Number 1 in the Nation - US for Auto Theft.

            What's that camo paint they are wearing on their faces, port wine birthmark stains or just a botched attempt at trying to look identical?

              Hey there,

              Not trying to get off topic by any means....but trying to follow it. What is the ACLU, and how does it affect you as law enforcement professionals??

              (We don't have an ACLU up here in Canada, although I am curious to find out what it is so I can see if there is anything similar.)

                ACLU stands for the American Civil Liberties Union

                the net has got oodles of "information" on them.
                If you can't be honest with yourself who can you be honest with.

                  Ooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I don't know anything about them, I will definately google them - just from their name though, sounds like a major thorne in your asses.

                  Thanks for the clarification.

                    All I have to say is

                    Bueno!

                    As a border resident, it's always good to hear when LE on both sides are either working together or tag-teaming it.




                    (And Can_Rookie, the ACLU was one of the best organizations that was ever formed in the US. Unfortunately, as we have become, in many good ways, a more liberal country, they have remained as far to the left of what we have as they were when we first needed them. You may be proud to know that another such vital group, the NAACP, was able to find unsegrated accomodations in Canada when they were first forming )

                      True Story

                      A few years ago (while assigned to a multi-agency vehicle theft task force) I worked a couple of nights on the Calexico border crossing checking outgoing vehicles for stolens and/or guns. We got word from the local SO that a PD vehicle was chasing a stolen S/B towards our checkpoint. Soon enough, we heard sirens and saw the vehicles approaching. When it was apparent that the suspects weren't going to stop, all the local coppers, customs agents and border patrol guys start jumping behind vehicles and dropping to the ground! My partner and I did the same, even though we weren't sure why. When the suspects arrived, the PD vehicle stopped short of crossing into Mexico and sure enough as soon as the suspects crossed all H*** broke loose. I swear every Mexican cop on that side opened up on the suspects, but they just kept driving! I didn't get up in time to see if any Mexican PD car chased the suspects, but for a few seconds it was quite the thing.

                      Later, a couple of the locals told me the same thing happened a few weeks earlier at a different crossing, only this time one of the crossers was hit and killed. The next thing to happen was a bunch of the Mexican cops (who had shot) fled the scene! It seems that in their form of government you are presumed guilty, until proven innocent. The "Police" officers involved were paid barely a living wage and had second thoughts about their employment after the shooting.

                        It's a common ocurrence. Contrary to popular "Hollywood" belief of "make it to Mexico and we're home free", I have seen a few bad guys actually beg us to help them after the Mexicans get a hold of them on the other side. "Sorry bud, you're not in the U.S. anymore, call the embassy or something."

                        I don't know about them, but I'd rather surrender and go to a U.S. jail for a fews months before being paroled and back out, than getting shot at, beat half to death and spend the next 20 years in a Mexican jail. But maybe that's just me.
