A friend down along the border made me aware of this:

EAST OF EDINBURG — The Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office is investigating a roadway shooting death involving several men with long-barreled firearms — possibly assault rifles — and a torched vehicle.

The shooting occurred about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, and authorities were called to the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 2812 and Uresti Street in connection with a firefight involving at least three separate vehicles, Sheriff Lupe Treviño said.

"When we arrived, we find one white pickup parked on side of road with one person having been shot multiple times," Treviño said. "A quarter-mile or less east of that location, we find a vehicle on fire."

"Additionally, on his own transport, a man arrived to a McAllen hospital with a gunshot wound."

While the investigation is on its preliminary stages, apparently one vehicle overtook the white pickup and opened fire, causing the truck to go off the road.

The vehicle that was burned is being considered a suspect vehicle because authorities believe that three suspects set it on fire right before they left.

Witnesses said the three men ran north, toward brush. Sheriff's Office K-9 units were being used to track the men down.
How many of you are tired of this bullshit? You are probably someone who thinks it is time to militarize the border and let the local populace live with such, but you are forgetting, or ignoring one important thing, which is the War On Some Drugs is a complete un-Constitutional farce! Prohibition does not work and did not even work when it was at least passed Constitutionally. However, most of you do not care and are OK with this instead of realizing that the War On Some Drugs has done more to lay the groundwork for the utter destruction of our Constitutional Republic (the Patriot Acts were the finish).

The War On Some Drugs is what laid the groundwork for Project Gunwalker and how many of you even understand this?

Spillover? Nah, no such thing happening here so nothing to see- move along. Just a bunch of filthy drug dealers killing each other...
