(My San Antonio)   Be advised: if you choose to smuggle nine illegal aliens in an old pick-up truck and you refuse to stop for the police, then Texas State Troopers will kill you and your passengers. From the air, with an armed helicopter, just like in the movies   ( mysanantonio.com) divider line

Adios motherf*ckers.

WTH? I will give them points for hitting the vehicle.

Meh. It's Texas. They would have been executed anyway.

That... umm... seems like a proportional response.

That ain't right, not even for Texas.
I wonder if there is more to the story.

TFA doesn't say that the dead were killed by gunfire. If they were riding in the bed of the truck they might have fallen out.

I wish that law enforcement would start putting gyro stabilized .50 rifles in their helicopters and just put a round through the engine block of any car that runs. I hate it when people just minding their own business get crashed into by some nut fleeing the long arm of the law.

their methods have been questioned, including decisions to shoot at fleeing vehicles from patrol cars and helicopters, a tactic eschewed by other law enforcement agencies

WTF, Texas?

and so they should.

It's only murder.

No big deal, right?

AMERICA!

Moral of the story... Don't ride with smugglers. Smugglers are bad.

They breached the United States border, and refused to stop for law enforcement.

Um...exactly what weapons does Texas State Trooper helicopters have on them?

(looks nervously at cloudy Texas sky)
 
2012-10-26 10:39:09 AM  
So was the officer in the helicopter in fear for his life?

Sharpshooter needs suspended, and sent to range for more practice.

Sounds like someone shot the truck with a Sniper Rifle, or marksman carbine.

FTFA, only the people in the cab were hit and killed.

As a result, the agency has been involved in a large number of high-speed chases - sometimes ending in what troopers call "splashdowns," when smugglers drive their vehicles into the Rio Grande to escape U.S. law enforcement.

Unknown, possible hostile incursion across a national border by elements who refused to yield to law enforcement in an area known for narcoterrorism and trafficking.

If this were any other nation, they'd have been blown apart by an Anti-tank missile or a heavy machine gun.

No. They should arrest them, and give them a trial. That's what we do in this country. We do NOT promote vigilante justice...not even for cops. Jackass.

Let's make a list of all the people 'like' people you think are dangerous and we can just round em up and gas em. Because that's justice.

How brave you are in the face of danger.

Farking fascist.
 
2012-10-26 10:43:32 AM  
I don't have a problem with this.
 
2012-10-26 10:43:52 AM  
Love the people who think that if illegal smugglers drive fast enough they should be allowed to get away.

Kudos to the realistic guy who pointed out that anywhere else in the world they'd be eating a tank shell in seconds.

I would imagine if I snuck into any country and ran from police they would shoot at me. Is this not normal?
 
2012-10-26 10:45:22 AM  
Those poor Mexicans were lucky Texas rescued them from those unscrupulous human smugglers.

Rescued them with bullets. Hey, they're in a better place now, right?

Ahem....you forgot something..."to be" and "the" specifically. What you should have said was The sharpshooter needs to be suspended, and sent to the range for more practice.

Sorry to be that guy...but living here in Florida has really got me burned with the lack of use of "to be". People saying things like "the car needs washed" and "the toys need put away" make me grind my teeth.

The Horror, The Horror.

And this is their highway patrol? Militarize the Police and police will take military type actions.

I'm not defending the people here, sounds like a clear enough case of having the right people... this time. The chance of getting the cars mixed up or decide to use the tactic on other suspects. Leave these decisions to the federal agencies, perhaps there is a reason they aren't doing it.

But this isn't any other nation, this is the "Land of the Free". I have little tolerance for illegal immigration but shooting at a pickup truck because it is easier than other less fatal methods is taking our country even further in the wrong direction IMHO.

Why? An armed incursion across national borders is an act of war, not a criminal matter.
 
2012-10-26 10:47:32 AM  
If it was a police helicopter, why wouldn't they just fly along side it and put a few well-placed bullets in the engine block? I can understand if they accidentally hit the driver or cab, but this sounds like it might have been a little more direct targeting at the cab than that.

Nothing like an extremely huge bit of the old ultra violent to be a deterrent. After all, we dropped nukes on 2 civilian targets to scare the Japanese military.

Ill also agree that coyotes are terrible. No regard for their "customers" in general...worst yet if they are female, as rape or forced sex slavery is likely.

They allegedly breached the border. What if the vehicle had small children in the back and one of them was hit by a bullet from a freaking helicopter? It's more hate than rationale driving the police policy here. Eventually it will catch up to them.
 
2012-10-26 10:50:02 AM  
I see no problem with this. You want to smuggle weapons, drugs or illegal aliens into our country.. We will shoot you.

A state-sanctioned armed incursion across national borders is an act of war. A bunch of guys in a pickup truck is a criminal matter. Unless you're suggesting that Mexico sent these guys to invade and the US should subsequently declare war on Mexico, of course.

Funny, I don't imagine the Canucks doing this. I am aware of the psychological deficiencies which give rise to neo-fascist mental architectures, but remain amazed at their ability to maintain the idiotic notion that the USA is the kindest-gentlest nation on earth despite the clear evidence of their senses. Keep it up.
 
2012-10-26 10:50:42 AM  
This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it.

With the continued militarization of our police forces (both on the border and in metropolitan areas), these types of military-styled actions will become more common. This is the result of the choices we've made to turn our police (formerly peace officer or constables) into squads armed with military hardware.
