Border agent ambushed and killed by ‘rock throwing’ illegal aliens at Texas-Mexico border

When President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested that U.S. troops could use deadly physical force on anyone from the caravan of Central American migrants who throws rocks at Border Agents or military troops at the border because “there’s not much difference” between a stone and a gun, the anti-Trump news media went ballistic. (Watch new video on rock throwing illegal aliens posted below this story.)

The late Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez was killed with a blow to the head with a rock.
It appears the leftists and news media care more about the safety of lawbreakers than they do about U.S. cops and soldiers.

While the thought of American soldiers or cops being injured or killed doesn’t seem to bother the denizens of America’s newsrooms, they fret over the prospect of a criminal’s use of deadly force — rocks can and have killed Border agents — being stopped by a bullet.

“The news reports and other statements in the news media would have American civilians believe there was a policy of excessive force being implemented, but that’s just not so,” said former police training officer Manny Roccia. “Being struck in the head or other area [of the body] by a rock thrown at about 50 or 60 miles per hour could seriously injure a cop or even kill him or her if it strikes a sensitive part of the head or body,” added Roccia, a Latino from the Bronx, N.Y.

“If the news media wishes to verify that I’d be more than happy to demonstrate by throwing rocks at them on camera,” he joked.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was called in and helped Border agents and local cops who were searching Texas’ Big Bend area for suspects and witnesses.

After U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced the killing of agent Rogelio Martinez and they reported he was allegedly “beaten to death with a rock while on patrol” the news media’s silence was deafening. In fact, foreign news outlets gave the brave officer’s death more coverage than the U.S. news media..

According to officials, Martinez, who was 36 at the time of his death, and his Big Bend Sector partner were responding to suspicious activity. Martinez suffered a blow to his head from a rock thrown by an unknown suspect.

Responding Border Patrol agents provided immediate emergency medical care and transported him to a local hospital, where Martinez later died from his wounds.

Martinez had been a border agent since August 2013 and was from El Paso. According to media posts, he was survived by his fiancee.

This November 20, Martinez’s Texas family will hold a first-anniversary memorial for the brave Border Patrol agent who was killed by an illegal alien who struck him in his skull with a rock at close range and could count on left-wing politicians and news people to take his side in the public debate..

Border Patrol spokesmen said they could not provide any details on what caused the agent’s injuries or what led to them, but a union official from the National Border Patrol Council told the local news reporters from the TV/radio station KTSM  that the assailants were ‘undocumented immigrants’ who likely used rocks to beat the agent.

‘We strongly believe rocks were what was used,’ Border Patrol union vice president, Art Del Cueto, told the station’s news reporters.

At that time, Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Senator Ted Cruz, both Republicans, also publicly commented on the deadly incident that resulted in Martinez’s death, characterizing it as “an attack.”  An official for the National Association of Chiefs of Police called it “part of an ongoing invasion of the United States that is being waged because U.S. leaders are stonewalling President Donald Trump’s efforts to protect Americans and U.S. sovereignty.”

Sen. Cruz said the nation is grateful ‘for the courage and sacrifice of our border agents.’

He also said that what happened to Border Patrol Agent Rogelo Martinez is “a stark reminder that an ‘unsecured border’ poses a threat to the safety of the communities and border agents tasked with protecting them.”

Meanwhile, Governor Abbott tweeted in a similar vain: “Our prayers are with the families of this Border Patrol Agent who was killed and the other agent who was injured in this attack in Texas,’ he wrote. ‘Our resources must be increased to prevent these attacks in the future.”

    I completely and totally agree those big rocks can kill! I also agree that if that is what they are throwing with the intent to kill somebody that lethal force should be used, Glock for the win. If the socialites, libtards, and demoncrats don’t like it maybe we can throw rocks at them to see if they agree that rocks can kill.

    God bless Captain Clay Higgins, all our border agents and now border soldiers.

    Yes rocks are lethal weapons and people who have no regard for entering a country LEGALLY will have no regard for our laws. Two types of people in this world, law abiding and lawless. Someone that will breach a country’s borders illegally will have no qualms about breaching your front or back door to steal from or kill you.

    We need to secure our borders and that should be our number one priority.

    I’ve been hit by a softball-sized rock thrown by a robber who had just assaulted and robbed a bartender of her tips. I tried to catch the thief, who had a good lead on me, until he starting throwing rocks. One rock that I tried to dodge hit me in the kidney and darn near killed me. They are certainly lethal projectiles and I wouldn’t hesitate to shoot the next rock thrower, whether he’s an illegal alien or a home-grown rioter. I thought that I was gonna die for 4 to 5 days and couldn’t but crawl to the restroom from that kidney shot that left an eight inch circular bruise.

    Just think a rock thrown with a sling shot is equivalent to a .45 caliber bullet.

    The United States is no more. Hasn’t been for over 30 years. Evidently the dumbed down people just continue to tolerate things that would never have been allowed by the men who formed this country and kicked them all out decades ago.

    Today, we have a society of circus freaks, uneducated nimrods, and the most corrupted and criminal government the world has seen. Jesus Christ, even Adolph Hitler and Josef Stalin would be jealous at the level of corruption, crime, and the millions murdered each year by the United States Military (aka Bankers Fighting Force Protecting The Financial Assets Worldwide) all over the Globe. Stalin and Hitler killed millions within their own borders. The United States Military kills millions all over the world.

    Funny. Its just dandy that the United States Military can guard and defend borders, poppy fields, and oil pipelines around the world, killing anyone who might dare jeopardize those operations. But, defending our United States borders is out of the question.
    Yet, the circus freaks and uneducated nimrods could care less.

    R.I.P. America. You were a good idea, but England just could not stand for a prosperous nation and took back their control of the currency and with it the control of all aspects of Commerce, Manufacturing, and every level of government.
