This is why we need strict controls on who are allowed into this country. I hope the authorities FRY that stupid Mexican degenerate! Shooting a cop, sitting in his car doing paper work? What a pathetic coward!! What kind of person shoots a person sitting in their car? Only a complete coward and loser! I hope they give this fool the MAX and lock him away for a LONG, LONG time!!

Just take them out back, get a tv station to air it live, and shoot them.
Saves on court cost, etc.

Being a Police Officer working close to the Mexican Boder (Bandera County, Texas) we are already been experiencing the violent effects of the fight by the cartels to control our area. It is a "given" that there will be more attacks on law enforcement as we are handling their attacks in a proffesional and humane manner. We need to change our tactics and be the aggresors, seek, locate and neutralize.

The Feds are not stepping up so bring in the National Guard like Phoenix City Alabama 1950's martial law.

First, get the Obominator out of office and get someone in who can lead and has some common sense.

I live in Indianapolis. We were rerouted the night that happened because the street was blocked off, there was also a helicoptor searching for the suspects. I'm glad that they caught the men responsible! This just goes to show WHY Indiana attempted to pass an immigration law. I, and many close to me, want others to have the opportunity for a better life. However, when their "better life" brings crime, fear, drugs, gangs and unemployment into our lives, it's a little more difficult to be understanding or forgiving. Our own Senator, Lugar, supports the DREAM Act and the crime that comes with illegal immigration. Perhaps this will change how some in Indy think! Not Lugar, and the Feds will still block our laws (passed in "our" best interests!), but perhaps we could stop being so accomodating or start having a "real" discussion about this very real, problematic issue....

Theresa, it's bad but not as much of a slap in the face by Gov. Rick Perry a couple of years ago. In Houston a young black officer was making a routine traffic stop in the evening. When he got up to the driver's side window he was shot in the face and mortally wounded by the driver an illegal from Mexico. Later in court when he was asked why he had shot the officer he said that he thought the officer was going to learn he was illegal and would arrest and deport him. The illegal was found guilty and was sentenced to life in prison. Texas is known as a state that is big on the death penalty but Rick Perry has been friends with the Mexican presidents and people of Mexico since he has been in office (3 terms) . In a recent rally with the people in Mexico Gov. Perry said, in perfect Spanish, "One country..One people...No Borders" He then said " We have to live together and learn to get along and that will happen when I am president." A smiling Mexican president standing beside him. The young officer left behind a wife and two young children.

It's past time for those in the police community to speak up and demand our elected officials enforce our immigration laws. Too many top police officials refuse to enforce our immigration laws for political reasons or because of political correctness. Attorney General Greg Zoeller does not want to enforce our immigration laws! SB 590 the immigration bill that passed this session in Indiana has come under assault from the ACLU and Zoeller will not defend the police assisting ICE portion of the law!
