    Oh, and by the way, Hi Jimbo.

    Not a lawyer, but I think that flight such as this is a valid reason for opening fire.

    Law of unintended consequences. Like I told my kids, the way to stay out of trouble is to not be where trouble is. And, along the border in a drug crossing area in a fleeing truck is one of the places where trouble is.

    Border enforcement is a whole different ball game to civil policing. Not sure why people continue to draw the comparison.

    Actually the article claims the assumption was that the truck was transporting drugs.

    Also why would it matter if the shooter was suspended? That doesn't automatically denote wrong doing on his end

    They were shooting at people.
    You seem intent on ignoring that the truck was in the process of violating our territorial integrity. Something every state has a clear interest and right to uphold.

    This wasn't just some random vehicle

    No, I'm just someone pointing at your blatent attempt to shift attention.

    I'm not sure how that would equate someone to the "forum police". Maybe think before you post
