good to see some positive action on our part
positive proaction, not after the fact.
As far as marijuana is concerned, the same cartel that has the border breached and mandates that all drugs and people pass through their corridors, every joint has blood on it, so suck away on the joint, while eight year old kids get conscripted from the classroom to work in the pot field. Or the ten year old's parents are forced to travel north into america to guard the cartels pot fields grown here in USA.
Hope it makes your intoxication on pot all the better, knowing that people gave and will give their livelihoods and even their life so you can escape reality into stoner land.


Yes, prohibition does stain the land. Worth every penny, every life though. Oh well, it's Miller Time. Stupid dopers!

Somebody sure sold you a line of propaganda! I will bet you had a beer in your hand and a cigarette in your mouth while you were typing that.

All these bad things happening around the MJ trade will instantly disappear the minute the government tells American citizens it is OK to grow your own.

Does anyone know whether the millitia is still about? I remember hearing about a year ago that a US millitia group was going to defend the border by hook or by crook... to prevent these cartels from hurting the locals in the border cities on the US side?

300 rounds exchanged during Texas border shootout


www.breitbart.com

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - U.S. law enforcement officials exchanged about 300 rounds of gunfire with suspected drug runners during a pre-dawn shootout across the Rio Grande, but only about six came from the suspects, authorities said Friday.
The Texas Department of Public Safety, whose Rangers were involved in the shootout, said such an overwhelming response was standard given the United States' zero tolerance policy when guns are pointed at its authorities. Department officials previously said the Americans were under "heavy fire," but they've since backed away from that.

(visit the link for the full news article)




Sounds like some serious stuff going on here. I've been trying to make sense of it and it adds up to quite a story. How much of it was filling in the blanks and how much of it actually happened? Are they sure of all the details or is this part guesswork, and have any details changed or new ones come to light?


Department officials previously said the Americans were under "heavy fire," but they've since backed away from that.


OK, that's one little detail that has been re-examined. After a major shoot-out I suppose the authorities made a big haul and recovered a lot of dangerous drugs, right?


A video shot from a Department of Public Safety helicopter shows a blue raft with bundles of marijuana packed in plastic and burlap. Smoke is seen pouring from a small structure nearby, although what caused the fire is unclear.

U.S. authorities seized the Durango but found no drugs in it. They contacted authorities in Mexico, who seized about 400 pounds of marijuana on that side of the river and destroyed a raft left behind. No arrests were made.


Hmmm... Not sure. US authorities get themselves a new truck and the Mexican authorities say they recovered some pot, quite a bit really. US DPS helicopter got some video shots of some smoke-out in a shed nearby - a la Fast Times at Ridgemeont High? Mexican authorities had to verify their haul I suppose.

That Durango pickup, that had to be their vehicle to transport the dope into town, right? That would be proof they were up to no-good.


The incident began about 6:30 a.m. Thursday, when U.S. Border Patrol agents spotted a Dodge Durango near the lightly populated border town of Abram, Texas, said Steve McGraw, director of the Department of Public Safety Director. He joined officials from Border Patrol and Texas Fish and Wildlife for a news conference Friday in Weslaco, roughly 250 miles south of San Antonio and just north of the river separating Mexico and the U.S.

Agents who gave chase found the truck abandoned on the banks of the Rio Grande, and a group of people on the Mexican shore unloading bundles of marijuana from rubber rafts, according to the Department of Public Safety.


Oh! They found the Durango in Texas and chased it all the way, apparently lost them briefly but caught up with it already abandoned by the river at the border. That's where they say they saw the dope, on the Mexican side.They must have been smuggling drugs into Mexico then.

OK, the Border Patrol, Texas Fish and Wildlife agents, and the director of the Department of Public Safety Director arrive at the river and find themselves under heavy fire? No, wait. Scratch that, they said it didn't happen that way after all, just in the initial report. The Mexicans started shooting and throwing rocks then? Must have been some serious casualties. Did those US agents take some bullets? Did they take down some of the "bandidos"?


Three suspects on the Mexican side of the river were believed injured or killed, although authorities in that country were still working to confirm that. Two U.S. game wardens were treated for cuts and abrasions after being struck with rocks.


Wow, that's some story! Those mexicans are tough, killed and injured but still managed to get away from the scene. Tough break. I sure hope those two US game wardens recover from their injuries soon and can go back to work before the summer is over.
