There is another officer-involved shooting that has many in this country sitting on edge right now.
This was not a shooting in a major metroplex, however.
Instead, it was a rare shooting involving a Border Patrol officer.
Details Still Coming In
As you can probably imagine, Democrats are sitting on this one waiting to pounce.
Details are limited, but we will tell you what we have so far.
After a pursuit that ended at a Campo, CA, gas station, Border Patrol officers opened fire.
The driver of the vehicle was shot, transported to a hospital, then died from the wound.
San Diego County Sheriff’s Department homicide Lt. Thomas Seiver stated, “A confrontation ensued, resulting in three agents discharging their firearms. The driver of the vehicle was struck by gunfire.”
No agents were injured in the confrontation.
There has been no report as of yet if this incident involved a drug or human smuggling operation.
This was a pot that had been simmering that was due to boil over for some time.
The relaxed border policies of the current administration all but guaranteed a conflict such as this would arise at some point, and now it finally has.
The question now is if Democrats will somehow use this to loosen border rules further or if they will stand behind the actions of the Border Patrol agents.
This is a developing story and we will follow up as necessary.
