THE BORDER REPORT

The following script is presumably the communications dispatch of what happened the night U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. I say "presumably" because neither the Border Patrol nor the FBI will confirm (or deny) the dispatch is true. I warn you, take this with a grain of salt. I can tell you I received it from a credible source. However, I'm merely providing it as a pretext for a discussion into what happened the night of Dec. 14. In the interest of fairness to Border Patrol agents, I've chosen to remove their last names from this document. When I receive an official account of what happened that night, I'll post that.

I can tell you that I have solid information on one of the four men injured that night. He's being held at a Tucson hospital with multiple injuries. Thus far, he's only been charged with immigration violation charges so I won't name him. That much I know. I also know the identities of the three others arrested. However, because they also haven't been charged, I won't name them.

The following? I simply don't know. But it bears exploring.

BORTAC Shooting Incident (11 TCANGL 121570000077)

On December 14, 2010, at approximately 11:13 p.m., a report of shots fired was broadcast over the radio by a member of TCA/BORTAC.  The agent reported that an agent had been “hit” and that a possible bandit had been struck as well during the armed encounter.  The area of the armed encounter is reported to be in an area known as “Peck Well”, near Rio Rico, Arizona.

Nogales Radio (KAK-865) immediately notified Emergency Medical Services (EMS), as well as Life Flight.
