Mexican Marines Reconstruct the Death of Don Alejo Garza


www.borderlandbeat.com

When Mexican Marines arrived at the San Jose Ranch, 15 kilometers from Victoria, Tamaulipas, the scene was bleak: The austere main house was practically destroyed by grenades and heavy gunfire.

Outside of the home, they found four bodies. Cautiously, and with their weapons drawn, the troops continued inspecting the exterior and found two more gunmen, wounded and unconscious, but alive.

Inside the house only one body was found, riddled with bullets and with two weapons by it's side. The body was identified as Don Alejo Garza Tamez, the owner of the ranch and a highly respected businessma

This was a 70 year old man who took on the Mexican drug cartels and fought to the death and he took some of them with him. Great story of courage and fortitude! And it exemplifies the meaning of: " better to die on your feet then live on your knees!"

I post this because I thought us Americans could use a little more of this kind of testicular fortitude as we watch our free country subjugated and emasculated before are very eyes and no one stands up.

As William Wallace said in Brave Heart: "All men die, But few men ever really live".

Rest in Peace Don Alejo Garza Tamez

S & F . Great story, more people should stand-up for what they believe in. He stood his ground and is a hero, may Don Alejo Garza rest in peace. I am sure they will get the rest of this group that attacked and killed him. It is great he killed some of his attackers. Thanks for sharing this story, Todd

This guy is a true hero. He sent away the innocent bystanders and took his life in to his own hands. He stood up to these people even though he knew he would die. He is my definition of a true hero. He stood in the gap and said, I will not be driven from my home by evil men.

I hope others will take his example to heart.

The sad thing is, I have mentioned this to several people and they said, "so he still ended up dead." They don't understand why he is a shining beacon of hope. They would rather let the drug cartel have everything they worked for than give their life in defense of what they have.

SInce I have a small child I might not stand and fight this way. I have to admit that up front. However, I don't know if I could face my kid knowing I cowered and gav away everything. It is a great example but, how many of us could truly do it.
