Default Mexican cartel shooting down CBP Helicopter

http://www.breitbart.com/texas/2015/...n-from-mexico/

I have a good friend that is a Border Patrol Agent in the Southwest on the border. He said Border Officers are getting shot at and assaulted more now than ever. He also advises that the atrocities committed on the border by the Cartels is just as heinous as ISIS. They find body parts all the time...

I wish our politicians would concentrate on what's important sometimes..

Too much $ at stake. But that being said, I wish they would seal our borders

Until this country elects a person with a set of balls or one tough bitch that won't take any crap, we will continue to be the laughing stock of the world. As such, bad people will test us continually seeing what they can get away with.

Iran
China
Russia
To name just a few......sad beyond belief.

Not to downplay any of this because this is my backyard but shootings at Agents are actually very uncommon, The numbers of assaults are way up and finding bodies/parts is common. I work side by side with these guys daily and as ive said before it is a shithole down here.
