    Graphic Images Justify Border Patrol's Use of Deadly Force Against Rock Attacks

    ROCK-RGVRocking.jpg
    \

    The result of obama's new border policy.


    Breitbart Texas has reported extensively on the left-of-center campaign to restrict the ability of Border Patrol agents to defend themselves and on the false narratives such open-borders advocates use in their political and media attacks against the men and women of the Border Patrol.
    The reality being far from the false narrative of "kids throwing pebbles," the life-threatening rock attacks against Border Patrol agents often occur in remote areas when a solitary Border Patrol agent may be up to a 90-minute drive from their nearest backup. The solitary Border Patrol agent's radio often does not work due to insufficient communications infrastructure along the U.S./Mexico border--leaving the agent alone and unable to call for help. The attacks often come from illegal immigrants trafficking drugs or human beings, or from illegal immigrants trying to divert the attention and resources of the Border Patrol in an effort to assist drug and human traffickers.

    Throwing rocks at men armed with guns would seem to me a bad idea. Are the officers not allowed to defend themselves?

    New policy is they can't shoot rock throwers. This also brings up the issue of rock slings like David used to kill Goliath. The Apache rock sling is easy to make and deadly. I have one I play with and can hit a can at 50 feet with it over 50% of the time.

    Slings can indeed be deadly. I used to make them when I was a boy. They can throw a rock the size of an egg for maybe 200 yards or so. It's easy to see how Goliath was actually outgunned.

    Sounds like it's time to revisit the ban on shooting at rock throwers.

    Rock throwers should be shot.

    The headline basically says it was justified.

    Because after all, the person throwing the rocks was shot and killed.

    Also from Breitbart, Nov 6 2013 "Border Patrol Agents Retain Right to Defend Themselves".

    ...The CPB and Border Patrol Agency decision to continue allowing Border Patrol Agents to defend themselves was first reported by Elliot Spagat of the Associated Press (AP). The AP article was actually quite fair and acknowledged some of the dangers lone Border Patrol agents face while having to operate in remote border region areas. The article acknowledged that the protocols for use-of-force that are appropriate for law enforcement officers in urban areas are often not appropriate in desolate surroundings along the U.S./Mexico border....

    No link, total lie. At least that what the non believers say. No matter what you say, if its bad about Obama or policy, you better have a "link".
    The words of the men and women working the border are not enough. The beatings of those men and women are not enough.

    Here is a great defense for those throwing rocks from across the border...move back a little.

    If BP has to arrest a person in the proximity of the border...why not supply the agents with helmets and face shields?

    Anyone stupid enough to throw rocks at armed officers needs to be shot, preferable while they are still young and have not contributed to the gene pool.
