Agents Assaulted During 2 Incidents Within 24 Hours

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents were assaulted during separate incidents just hours apart last week.

Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents were assaulted during separate incidents just hours apart last week.

Agents assigned to the Special Operations Detachment, working in a remote area west of Tucson late Sept. 28, encountered two Mexican nationals armed with rifles. While attempting to arrest the individuals, one subject ran. When an agent caught up with the subject, an altercation ensued and a second agent had to assist in subduing the subject. One agent suffered a dislocated shoulder during the altercation. Agents also seized four weapons during the encounter.

A few hours later, on Sept. 29, Douglas Border Patrol Station agents encountered two Mexican nationals illegally present in the U.S. As agents were arresting the subjects, one refused to comply and punched an agent in the throat and torso before being subdued.

The individuals carrying firearms were turned over to Homeland Security Investigations and face prosecution.

The individuals arrested by Douglas agents will also face prosecution.

Federal law allows the Border Patrol to charge individuals by complaint, a method that allows the filing of charges for criminal activity without inferring guilt. An individual is presumed innocent unless and until competent evidence is presented to a jury that establishes guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

“These incidents highlight the many dangers Border Patrol agents encounter in the field on a daily basis,” said Chief Paul Beeson. “What appears initially to be a simple arrest can quickly escalate into a violent encounter. It is especially dangerous when agents encounter criminals carrying weapons and are willing to evade arrest by any means.”

  1. These criminal bastards killed 2 people I knew (Rob Krentz and Brian Terry). They were killed because the phucking pheds will not support the men and women of the BP, Customs, ICE, as well as our military. May God damn them heartily and quickly. Meanwhile let’s all do what we can to make America great again. Doing so will also help Mexico and our other friends around the world.

    • If mexico was our friend Bill they would help us protect our southern border from the Criminal, Illegal, Alien, Invaders, just like we help them defend their border from Illegal Arms shipped to their country.

      You express yourself in the manner that I wish I could, but any comment like that from me would immediately be censored as I have a “Bulls Eye” on my back by the censors at the ADI.

      mexico is NOT our friend Bill. They use us and our once great country to dump their trash on us to rape our social programs, STEAL our jobs, and some of them commit heinous criminal act’s against our citizens and legal aliens…….GO TRUMP, GO TRUMP, GO TRUMP.

  2. These Terrorist attacks by the Criminal, Illegal, Alien, Invaders on our B.P. Agent’s is getting out of control, it is time for our protectors (B.P.) to start to use deadly force to show that “we the people” are not going to stand for it anymore. Mr. Trump was/is correct when he says that the terrorist nation of mexico is NOT sending us their best, as ALL are Criminals when they break our immigration laws and invade OUR COUNTRY illegally, and do so every day that they remain in our once great country. mexico is NOT our friend and we need hired help like Trump to take them down a few notch’s.

    Build the wall, Deport them all…..GO TRUMP, GO TRUMP, GO TRUMP.
