Mexico should shut it's big fat mouth. No one there has stopped the violence and until they take all the cartels and cancel them out along with all of their families and friends then Mexico will never have peace.

The people there were shooting at the agents and throwing rocks. The agents are not going to simply retreat in the face of firearms fire. Too bad the Mexican Military have no cajones left. The only good Mexican military units are those of the NAVY. They are trained like seals and do a good job. However there are not enough of them to go around.

Mexico has ever right to speak out about the brutality being shown towards their citizens by others. If we followed your logic, we should have taken no issue with Al Qaeda after 9-11 since there is a lot of handgun violence in Detroit. Wake up and stop being the ugly American who can't stomach anyone from another land.

Mexico sees dollar signs, every time a Mexican is dead and it involves an American Border Patrol agent. If Mexico care, theyd tell their citizens to keep away from Border!

Mexico should DO SOMETHING & STOP THE BRUTALITY WITHIN MEXICO'S OWN BRUTAL CARTEL VIOLENCE. THEY PUT UP WITH KIDNAPPINGS, TORTURES AND HEAD SLICING! Seems the government is accepting the violence as a SPORT and favorite cartel past-time. So when a BP agent reacts in self defense by shooting back when pelted by rocks or shot at.... Mexican officials ARE HORRIFIED that the BP shot back in self defense!!!! If Mexico guarded their own damn side of the border THIS WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED!!!THEY ARE TO BLAME FOR THIS DEATH OF THEIR CITIZEN, AND THE BP SHOULD FILE CHARGES AGAINST MEXICO FOR SLACKING OFF WITH THEIR OWN RESPONSIBILITY AND PUTTING HIM IN THE SPOT HE WAS PUT IN! They never take responsibility for their own. Their own are all over illegally over here but thats ok, huh? and how do they treat THEIR ILLEGALS? we've heard some harrowing stories of the treatment off illegals in their country. They don't supply them with medical needs, food stamps or free education for any illegals' anchors born over there, right?

Yeah, like we did such a great job with the Pendergasts, and the Purple Gang, and Capone, and all those others during the last Prohibition. The cartels cannot and will not be controlled until OUR government stops the insanity of Prohibition. It made a lot more sense when it was about alcohol, which is a lot harder to produce and handle than is cannabis. Education has lowered demand for cocaine. Darwin will take care of smack and speed. Weed? Other than stupid laws, what's the problem? Take away the financial incentives and we have the same results we had in 1932. The gangs don't go away, but they get a lot easier to control.

And what about our rights to be free from the rogue people in Mexico who have killed US citizens, Transported marijuana in quantity and Human smuggling that we have to deal with along with the influx of all those who are illegally here abusing our health care system and taking jobs using false Social Security Numbers? Screw what is happening in Detroit, Chicago or New York. Look to the border where the cartels are running things and have the tacit approval of the Mexican police in almost every town along the border. Until Mexico gets off her big fat ass and kills all the cartels (not arrest but kills) then they have no gripes.

Al Queda brought the war to Us and we returned the favor along with the every other terrorists in the world. Mexico is a stomping ground if corruption and death. Too bad we can not invade and finish off the whole lot.
