    Boycott Mexico: US Citizen shot on PWC

    http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/...n6917510.shtml

    Well folks, its geting more real aint' it?
    Boycot Mexico, let them have thier pesos, their land, their water.
    And let us have ours.

    Do not support drugs by doing that you become a part of the drug war and are also attached by association as a 'murderer'.

    Can't say it plain enough.

    Screw Mexico. This is the real war on terror, the real outrage.
    Over 28,000 dead since 2006. More than our war in the Middle East. But no outrage...

    This is an outrage.

    Do not travel to Mexico.

    If I was President, I would send a few fighter planes over to destroy these "tough guy" Mexican pirates.

    Our community needs to get very concerned about this and be mindful of where we ride

    Here is the latest
    Search resumes for US man shot in Mexican waters
    By PAUL J. WEBER (AP) – 4 hours ago

    SAN ANTONIO — Texas officials planned Friday to renew warnings about pirates marauding on a U.S.-Mexico border lake after a Colorado tourist was gunned down in Mexican waters while his wife dodged bullets and raced her Jet Ski back to American soil.

    Search teams combed the U.S. side of Falcon Lake for David Michael Hartley, 30, whose wife told police he was shot in the back of the head Thursday after being ambushed by gunmen on boats.

    The gunmen are suspected pirates who have turned Falcon Lake, a waterskiing and bass fishing hotspot down the border from Laredo, into uneasy waters for fishermen and boaters. There have been at least five reported run-ins with pirates on the lake this year, though prior holdups had never been deadly.

    Hartley's fate was unclear. Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez said 29-year-old Tiffany Hartley fears her husband is dead. She circled back on her Jet Ski to rescue him but had to retreat when she heard bullets whizzing by.

    Gonzalez said he had contacted the Mexican consulate to ask them to search for Hartley on its side of the lake.

    "I'm not trying to place the blame on her or him," Gonzalez said. "But we've told people not to go over there, and now this happens."

    Texas Parks & Wildlife Department spokesman Mike Cox said Friday that the state planned to issue a fresh warning to boaters about staying on the U.S. side of the lake. The last warning came in May, and some campers on the lake have taken to arming themselves.

    Falcon Lake is a dammed section of the Rio Grande that straddles the border. The border is marked by 14 partially submerged concrete towers that mark the Rio Grande's path before the lake was created in 1954.

    According to Gonzalez, Tiffany Hartley told police that the couple rode their Jet Skis for sightseeing and to take pictures of a famous church in Old Guerrero. They were riding back when they saw the armed gunmen on the boats, and immediately began racing back to U.S. waters.

    David Hartley didn't make it. His wife told authorities he was shot in the back in the head; Cox said one of the boats may have crossed into U.S. waters briefly while trying to run down Tiffany Hartley.

    Cox said Tiffany Hartley estimated that the shooting took place about five to six miles from the Texas shoreline where she parked and called for help.

    In April, pirates robbed another group of boaters who also went to Old Guerrero to see the church. Cox said the most recent reported pirate sighting had been Aug. 31, when boaters saw gunmen riding a small skiff with "Game Wardin" misspelled in duct tape on the side of the vessel.

    Cox said it appeared the pirates were trying to imitate state game warden boats they have seen patrolling the lake.

    Gonzalez has previously chalked up the dangerous waters as the product of fighting between rival Mexican drug gangs.

    Violence on the Mexican side of the lake has been climbing for several months, as a fractured partnership between the region's dominant Gulf Cartel and its former enforcers, the Zetas, plunged many of the area's Mexican border cities into violence.

    I stopped going down there a few years ago.
    They can collect tourist dollars from someone else, I don't want anything to do with Mexico any more. And send the illegals back there too.

    "It has been noted that 75% of people on LA's most-wanted list are illegal aliens. Nearly 25% of all inmates in California detention centers are here illegally, and roughly 30% of inmates in the federal prisons are illegal aliens.

    In addition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegals from south of the border. According to Tancredo, gang membership by illegal aliens in many states is 50%, and in Phoenix, Arizona, illegal aliens constitute 34% of child-molestation and 40% of auto theft cases.

    Furthermore, illegal aliens murder (on average) 12 Americans EVERY DAY, according to Congressman Steve King. Plus, illegals that drive drunk kill another 13 Americans EVERY DAY. That means illegal aliens kill more Americans EVERY YEAR than have been killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in total."

    Hmmm........so because of the actions of some we should boycott an entire country? Got it. Btw plenty of foreign nationals from Europe, Asia, etc come to the US and wind up being killed here. Should they boycott us?

    The Russians know how to deal with scum like this, remember when they caught a group of Somalis and set them out to drift in a raft 300 miles off shore?

    It's a sad state we're in, all our government will do is issue warnings. Our border patrols and other military forces are trained and equipped to handle this but are under such strict regulation they cannot do what needs to be done. Our men would be prosecuted as criminals for doing a service to our country if they act on the agression.
