KFYI Radio in Phoenix is reporting an incident that took place this past Monday morning in a Phoenix residential neighborhood. Former Congressman turned talk radio host, JD Hayworth, reports that three suspects were captured in an attempted ambush on Phoenix Police which may have turned deadly. The three suspects were captured with two AR-15 assault weapons, full body armor and dressed in black assault gear impersonating a Phoenix Police Tactical Team.
From the police report (pdf):
Information from one of the suspects on McDowell indicated all the suspects are Mexican Military coming into the United States with full tactical gear and police raid shirts to conduct home invasions. According to the same suspect, they were planning on ambushing the officers following them but, didn’t only because they didn’t have any ammunition left
So Mexican drug cartels are hiring members of the Mexican military to come across the border with full tactical gear and kill Phoenix police officers in their own homes.
Somebody please tell me how securing our borders against this type of completely unacceptable activity is about race. Because I haven’t called anyone an ignorant jackass in a few days and I’m getting that itch.
When things the military from a neighboring country comes across your border and kills people, it’s an act of aggression. At the very least we should be building a fence. Keep in mind that our military has been securing the border between North and South Korea for the last fifty years. We ought to be able to do the same here at home.
With things like this going on, a border fence might not be enough. I think we need to let Mexico know there are going to be consequences for allowing it to continue.
Police are now saying these three are not active military:
None of the men accused in a deadly west Phoenix home invasion this week is an active member of the Mexican military, according to Phoenix police.
Daniel Garcia-Saenz, 24; Manual Garcia-Trejom, 25; and Rodolfo Madrigal Lopez, 19, were arrested Sunday night in connection with the slaying of Andrew Williams, 30, who was gunned down in his home in the 8300 block of West Cypress Avenue.
The assailants wore body armor, had assault-style rifles and used more than 100 rounds of ammunition.
After the arrests, one of the men – whom police have not identified – told a police officer that he had received some military training, said Sgt. Joel Tranter, a police spokesman.
That statement launched speculation that members of the Mexican army invaded the home.
Something stinks. I think there is more to this story. What about you? - Duane
Now, They Aren’t Sure:
Phoenix Police said they haven’t been able to confirm whether members of the Mexican military shot people at a West Valley home earlier this week in a deadly home invasion.
Police Union President Mark Spencer told News/Talk 92.3 KTAR’s Darrell Ankarlo he has written reports from command level officers claiming the suspects said they were from the Mexican military.
“One suspect said he was Mexican military,” Spencer said. “The other report from another supervisor said that all the suspects are Mexican military, that they’re coming into the country in full tactical gear to conduct home invasion.”
Officials did say that the shooting did not appear to be random.
