Shacat said he witnessed "more Border Patrol agents than I’ve ever seen before" in the area.

But yet according to the two listed above we have no border issues here. Tell
that to the family of another slain BP agent. Prayers to all BP agents and
their families!

If the unharmed agent was packing an AK47, it might have made it easier to
find the bodies of the killers.

It’s past time to stop being nice. Seal the border, and keep it sealed! I
pray they catch the person(s) responsible. Thoughts and prayers to all of the
BP agents and their families!

The ‘unknown’ intruders set off an early warning proximity sensor. When the
area was approached by US Federal officers, the perpetrators opened fire
instead of retreating/fleeing the scene. Color this anyway you want but one
word comes to mind: ambush Waiting for the rest of the story to develop like
was a warning shot fired, who opened fire first, how many rounds fired,
yada-yada. RIP Agent Nicolas Ivie and a speedy recovery wishes for his fellow

I wonder if the weapon(s) used to cut down this agent was part the the fast
and furry mess.
