1) This was supposedly a group of "smugglers", so they probably go back and forth between the 2 counties unfettered 99% of the time....They finally saw the Border Patrol doing their job and just flipped out.....
It would be as if someone went out and broke laws on a daily basis (stole from a store) with impunity for a long time and profited handsomely from it......then, all of sudden, he finds a security guard actually DOING HIS JOB....he'd lose it
2) Bush, president of the U.S, has been talking about amnesty and welcoming illegals since he gov' of Texas.....why should they feel any laws or common decency should apply to them?
If the leader of the U.S tells them he welcomes them all with open arms and will reward them in way possible, why should they care about or respect our BP agents?
I am probably one of the most liberal posters on this board but even I have ZERO tolerance to "illegal aliens".
One of the most troubling events I have seen were the snipers last year in Virginia. Authorities picked up an Illegal alien who was using a payphone the snipers were just at. Turns out the illegal alien did nothing wrong other then be here illegally. They actually debated whether or not to depart him. What was there to debate.
