Suspend your disbelief--this is true! And why shouldn't it be--we attack everybody when we feel like it.

This is from The Raw Story

U.S. Border Patrol Agents have responded to cross-border rock throwing attacks by firing tear gas and powerful pepper sprays across the border into Mexico, hurting many innocent bystanders in the process.

What the hell? Maybe the munitions were close to their "use by" dates and they didn't want to throw them out. Maybe it's just another example of our Government using excessive force to respond to an annoyance. Maybe it's OK because, after all, they're just Mexicans.

If I was the Mexican Government, I would consider lodging a formal protest with the U.N., sue for redress, and build my own fence to keep the Unites States from committing further aggression against my citizens.

Our Government is heavy-handed, thuggish and supremely arrogant. We have no respect for anyone else, and this is another example that proves it.

I'm not sure I disagree with firing off a few tear gas rounds and other non-lethal crowd suppression devices.
From what I can tell, we were just firing on our own future citizens and they need to learn respect for law enforcement officers.
If we could randomly lob canisters into the inner cities we would probably reduce the crime rate by 50%. See a couple of thugs hanging out around 2 a.m. drinking and whatnot, fire a few of those things down the block and save someone from getting mugged, shot, beaten or worse.
In Fact, those items should be made available at the local Wal-Mart. I might shop there more often.
Now for some serious discussion, it is a true and total crime to fire anything over there. I see no reason why the officers cannot just move back a 100 yards or so and ignore little Pedro and his friends. Just let those same bastards come across the border illegally and then blow them away. After all, they are technically invading our country at that point.
(kinda harsh, but something is needed) We can agree to disagree on that point.
