Border Patrol shoots at militia member on mexican border

BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) — The Border Patrol says an agent shot at someone near the Texas-Mexico border who later identified himself as a militia member.

Border Patrol spokesman Omar Zamora said that agents pursuing a group of immigrants east of Brownsville on Friday came upon a man holding a long arm near the river. An agent fired multiple shots, but did not hit the armed man. The man then identified himself as a member of a militia.

    “This month, the Border Patrol warned its agents about militia members after seven of them dressed in camouflage and carrying rifles appeared out of the dark and began helping to apprehend immigrants around a canal near Mission. The agents initially mistook them for a Department of Public Safety tactical team.”

    They’re just pissed because the militia guys are better trained than they are…

      Why do these law enforcement guys all suck so bad at shooting!!
      Do they really hire retards only?
      • gamegetterII says:
        Obviously these guys are clueless-why were they shooting at a guy that they did not know was not an illegal,and had no clue who he was?
        Why were they shooting at anyone on private property?
        Who taught them to shoot first-then find who you were shooting at after they’re dead?
        Who trains these ‘tards?
        As Semper Fi said-maybe they are trying to scare the militia guys.

        Then again-the militia that helped them arrest the illegals was mistaken for another LE unit-so maybe they are just pissed that the militia guys are better trained,so they’re trying to eliminate their competition.

    Why exactly was the Border Patrol shooting at someone whom they could not recognize on private land?
    First of all, you do not pull down and open fire on an unidentified target, let alone on land that is privately owned, what if the landowner is walking around, or his family????
    Sounds like they were trying to scare off the militias.

      No shit! If I was was the owner of the property that happened on I would be making a LOT of noise in the media!
      • Mark Matis says:
        Are you actually naive enough to think the Media would let you make ANY noise whatsoever about that???

    The guy should have said he was hunting coyotes.

    If only they’d shoot in a Southern-ish direction instead.
  5. Dan says:
    I have no doubt the Border Patrol knew he was an American as they don’t toss rounds at the illegals invading the country unless they throw rocks at them first.

    “there are enough agencies working to secure the border”

    Oveiously not… Because they are flooding across the border….

Go ahead. Say what ya gotta say. Get it off your chest, but be nice.
