    Firefighter Attacked By Aliens in TX

    A firefighter I work with was visiting ElPaso a couple weeks back. He had his family in the vehicle and they stopped for fuel. At the gas pumps he was accosted by three illegal aliens trying to take his truck. One tripped him. One stabbed him in the leg while on the ground. He pulled a 9mm from his coat pocket and shot the man with the knife in the heart twice. He then held the one that tripped him for the police as the third left the area. He said it took several days working with the police before he could leave the state. Glad he had his 9.

    Thank God for firefighters with 9mm's. This could have ended very badly for his entire family.
    They need to throw all the illegals out of the country...NOW! We have enough crime with 'legal' dirtbags.
    Almost all of our politicians have let us down on this one.

    Stay armed...any time, any place...stay safe!

    I've been saying for a long time that a trebouchet, every few miles along the border and aimed back at Mexico, would be a very effective deterrent. They would only need to be used a half-dozen time or so, then all the rest of their countrymen would likely realize they're better off staying home instead of trespassing, after all.
    Free air-fair home! Even the Lib-r-Tards should find that acceptable!

    Stay safe,

    That's another post about a Firefighter attacked in Roswell, not El Paso.

    Glad this smoke eater was ready and willing, hope the leg heals quickly.

    That is an amazing story. Got a link? I can't find any reference to it anywhere, but there are lots of episodes of violence in El Paso.

    What does it matter that the guy was a firefighter? Is that relevant in some way to the story?

    Funny that you mentioned this...I also looked for a link to the story as I suspected it had to be at least on the local news (with family, illegal aliens, fire fighter, 3 versus 1, stabbing etc). But could not find any story to such.

    So, I don't really need to be wearing my foil hat right now?

    If some of you live in the area you may can find out more about it. I will tell you all I know. It happened in the middle of Oct at a truck stop on I-10 just outside of Elpaso TX. The shooting was captured on the truck stops video survalance. My station Chief told me this morning that the guy is still out on leave. Thats all I know at this time. I looked online and could not find it either.

    If the guy is still out on leave, then how do you know so much about the incident?

    I will say this, El Paso isn't a podunk location and they do their news as well as any major city. A combined stabbing and shooting where the shooter was an out of towner, protecting his family, who held one of the attackers for police AFTER being stabbed and after killing (I assume 2 shots to the heart killed the attacker) another attacker would make the news and every news station and newspaper would cover it. That would be some exciting news....only the alleged event didn't make the news.

    So the question is, why didn't this amazing story make the news?

    Now we learn the guy is still out on leave and so we don't have.

    It all sounds like a urban myth/hoax.

    I am not a liar just passing on what I heard other firefighters and officers. Some of the guys talked to the man over this week end. If the Chief knows about it you can bet it happened.
    I was a cop here in GA for three years and saw a good bit of major crime activity that never made the news. Also from what I have been told by people from the Elpaso area is if you are a Mexican and comit a crime against a Black person that it may not make the news nor even get prosecuted.
