1 slain, 1 wounded as bandits ambush smugglers


azstarnet.com

A suspected drug smuggler was killed and another wounded west of Casa Grande in Pinal County early Thursday in a shooting by what was believed to be a rip-off crew.
Investigators believe the crew opened fire on a group of 15 drug smugglers early Thursday west of Casa Grande in a popular smuggling corridor. Following that shooting, members of the rip-off crew carried the marijuana to a car stopped on Interstate 8 and took it to Stanfield.

This shooting occurred in the same area where two suspected drug smugglers were shot and killed in June 2010 and where ex-Pinal County Sheriff's deputy Louis Puroll reported being shot by smugglers he had been tracking on April 30, 2010... and this is not far from where the AZ rancher was murdered...

Sadly this kind of thing happens every day down on the US Mexico border from TX to Calif...yet Obama in his infinite wisdom doesn't think we have a problem???

Barring any real solutions like ending prohibition or full military defense along the border having the gangs and cartels eat themselves is the next best thing.

The more they kill each other the less they kill us.

God forbid they form a united front. They'd march right over the Southwest in a weekend.

Now with town's/cities, being abandoned, folks fleeing the violence... we're already seeing refugees ....

That makes sense. People dont want to be around the violence even if they arent the target of the violence.

Not likely... ripping off the smugglers is big business in itself...
heck people have been doing so for as long as I can remember... stories like this were quite common when I was a kid... back when we got all our news from traveling bards and stone tablets

Won't happen. The organization is non-existent
