WOW. He linked to a nearly three-year-old TW article about Tucson being "off the charts poor?" Tucson certainly isn't any boomtown, but honestly, a lot about the economy nationally and locally has changed in that particular three years. He might have had more credibility if he had linked to something more recent, like maybe last year's weeklong Arizona Public Media series on poverty here, or the other weeklong series the Star did, also last year.
Don: I did say he made some good points.

The show was comical and the Mac'nChez was delicous! I waited all night for the pizza, but I didn't get a slice. Oh well, Maybe just do di'giorno next time. The Real Noid signing off. VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVvVVV
How old is he?
This article is so true and anyone that likes it has lived in Tucson their whole life and not experienced the rest of the world. LAZY and unambitious people live in Tucson (yes there are exceptions, but 97% of this sentence is true).
It's Slate, so who cares?
Maybe that is exactly the hero Australia deserves! ;-)
With 20% of the Earth covered with Desert and only 2% of the worlds population living in the Desert, I takes a special kind of person to handle life around here. Once a person figures out how much they love it in the desert, and how beautiful the desert life is, they could care less what that other 98% of the world thinks about it.
Off the charts poor... except for the Louis Vuitton and Tiffany store that somehow stays open... sure.
Hmm, that's interesting. I walked on plenty of sidewalks when I lived there and never had to stumble through the streets like a zombie. And there are plenty of people who are permanently living there. But there's nothing wrong with just passing through, either! Part of the diverse culture are the people who pass through for days, months or years, bringing their stories with them and adding some spice to the scene. The author of this article should probably have lived in Phoenix if he couldn't appreciate the wonderfulness of Tucson.
Cool. All the people who don't love Tucson should pack the hell up and get out. Go back to wherever they came from.
Did you notice that "off-the-charts poor" was a link to a Tucson Weekly article? http://www.tucsonweekly.com/tucson/off-the… Guess you provided him all the ammo he needed. ;)
Oh boo hoo Mike. Did I hurt your feelings? If you had ANY sense, you would see that my comment was meant in general and the general sense of the answers in the comments, were as I STATED, made by lowly educated Faux Snooze-watching xenophobes. So don't get your panties all in a twist. As for calling me ignorant without knowing who I am, puts you in the category of ASSHOLE striking out at something not directed at him in particular. So stop trolling the comments and go back to sleep.
I have been along the area where there is the fence that is along the small cliff. I am not been personally to the area where the shooting occurred but I have seen photographs. I know it occurred by the Emergency Clinic on International Street. It is not impossible for a person to throw a rock up and over that wall. It happens on a pretty frequent basis, just as a Border Patrol Agent. Smuggling Cartels routinely use teenagers to throw rocks at Border Patrol when they are trying to arrest illegal aliens and drug smugglers on our side of the border. I equate that with how Iraqi Insurgent groups would use teenagers to spot for indirect fire, set up IEDs, and other hostile acts while I was deployed there. It is pure evil to have young impressionable people do your dirty work.
There is also disputes staying he was a lot closer to the wall than where he body ended up. Plus there was surveillance footage of the incident, but has not been released by the FBI.
Currently the only details that are out concerning the autopsy and any investigation are coming from Mexican authorities. During a report from KGUN 9, they had a Pima Cornor look at it and stated
""Well, sometimes people confuse an entrance and an exit gunshot wound. So clearly, if the exits are really entrances then the trajectories would be completely the opposite," "We haven't produced the report ourselves. We haven't seen photographs, haven't seen the body and don't really know the people that produced the report,"
Plus it was hard for US authorities to conduct a investigation on the scene of the incident. They started to get rocks thrown at them (I guess rock throwers brought rocks with them). Mexican authorities did not keep scene security on their side. So, the entire incident scene is compromised.
The primary investigative authority of all shooting concerning Federal Law Enforcement Officers is the FBI. To the best of my research and knowledge they have not released any reports. Then you have the investigation done by the agency and a separate one done by the union. These cases take sometimes years to have an conclusion.
Each incident is different. You and I do not know the exact details of the one you mentioned above. My general thoughts are if you threaten law enforcement with serious bodily harm/death, the officer/agent is justified with using deadly force. It is not dictated by solely on what type of weapon they are using or the age of the suspect. It is what a responsible officer would have done in that particular situation given the same amount of time to make that decision. That is what matters, not what you or I feel...
Personally I am waiting for the safer pink silicone version comes out before I advise the squirrels nibbling at my feet to show Vladimir Putin how much love they have for him. Not that some of you squirrels won’t just resort to sandstone anyway…
Putin, so painful it's almost blissful...
Please do think about taking a drive down to Nogales.
Where you can then drive over the border to stand at the exact location where a BP Agent fired across an international border to brutally pump 7 shots into a 16-year-old kid's back.
Do be sure to bring along one of your 14 or 15 year-old-kids from your neighborhood.
Ask him to heave a rock at least up over a 75 foot cliff atop of which is a 18-foot high fence.
If you come, be sure to bring along a bag of rocks. Because the area below that huge cliff is a parking lot. There are no rocks there.
But if your kid manages to throw a rock that far, I'm thinking that he's got a great career ahead of him as major league outfielder.
Throw a fist sized rock at me and I would spread six 9mm rounds into the center of your chest.
Hells Yeah!!! Big ups on my childhood friend Ryan Cody on his much deserved success!!

Jim Nintzel the above post indicates a "larger" question: "...The resilient

What and/or who is keeping "the resilient warfare" rolling on???
Thanks and Good Luck.
