    Just how stupid is it to throw rocks at armed border patrol officers? I am sure that in the words of Rahm Emmanual, We are no going to waste a good crisis". I can see Obama taking away the guns of the Border Patrol.

    "A U.S. official close to the investigation told the AP that authorities have a video showing that the Border Patrol agent did not cross into Mexico. In fact, the official said, the video shows what appear to be members of Mexican law enforcement crossing onto the U.S. side, picking something up and returning to Mexico. The official was not cleared to speak about the video and spoke only on condition of anonymity."

    US officials say the border patrol agents were being pelted with rocks while trying to apprehend migrants attempting to cross a downtown bridge illegally; the Mexican officials say the 15yo was hanging out along the Rio Grande and wasn't attempting to cross into the US, and that he died on the Mexican side of the border.

    So far, it's he said she said. I'll wait for the investigation to move beyond the preliminary reports before wagging my finger at anyone.

    What makes you say that? The only gun-related issue Obama has addressed while in office was to sign into law a bill that allows loaded handguns to be carried on national parks. Why would he take away the guns from the border patrol? Reeks of fear-peddling.

    Does anybody else hear that tea kettle starting to whistle? It's getting REAL tense on our Southern border and it seems that neither the President nor Congress are willing to do anything about it until they have a full blown war on their hands;
    Go figure, racism is always the culprit behind people defending our border and laws. This has become a pathetic "Boy who Cried Wolf" scenerio to the point of exhaustion.
    Also, funny how quick the Mexican Feds showed up after the event, sounds like they could be policing their own border making sure their people stay on their side so our big bad border patrol can't accost them anymore... Just saying.
