SUV's Fatal Flaw Failed to Protect ICE Agents
March 23, 2012
The Mexican drug cartel operators who killed Special Agent Jaime Zapata on a trafficking route in central Mexico a year ago defeated an armored Chevy Suburban designed to defeat high-velocity gunfire, fragmentation grenades, and land mines.
They did it quite easily. A flaw in the vehicle—the doors immediately unlocked when it was placed in park—allowed them to easily enter the SUV, reports the Arizona Star.
