Slain Border Agent Was Attacked by Bandits

December 16, 2010  | 

U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, 40, was likely killed by bandits who rob and sexually assault immigrants illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, reports the New York Times.

Terry, who had been a border agent since leaving the Detroit PD in 2007, was attacked Tuesday evening in a mountainous region known for smuggling of drugs, humans and other contraband, near Rio Rico, according to Reuters.

The area is a few miles northwest of Nogales, Ariz. Four suspects have been arrested and federal authories are searching for a fifth.

Ok, send in the Marines. Lock the boarder down hard, shoot at everything that runs, crawls, flies, drives, or floats. Leave their stinking rotting bodies in the sun. Mexico doesn't give one shit over this, their government is infested more so than ours with a bunch of crooks and schemers. Knock the shit out of them, if their own people can't clean it up, pull or troops out of those goat herder countries and send them south of our boarder.

Too bad the federal government's response to the border problem is to put up sings warning people not to hike in these areas. This officer gave his life defending this country and it doesn't seem that the politicians in Washington care.

Our war needs to be waged at our own southern border. This is where the influx of crime and illegal activity is taking place. The Mexican DTO's are a bigger threat to our national security right now than terrorism, not that we should take a back door to terrorism, but the DTO's are just as much of a threat. It is endangering the safety and the lives of LEO's. We need to place military personnel along the border for protection and if need be, declare Mexico hostile and take military action against the country.
