OK, common sense here. If we are supposed to believe the car actually hit the agent in such a way that he was thrown onto the hood of the car, we are also supposed to believe that he would have been able not to get thrown off the car over the course of 200 yards, able to pull out a gun, able to arrange his body to aim 10 shots deadly shots at the driver, and end up with no wounds to his body from the car striking him. Not a complete or believable report.

Never been in a serous emergency situation have you? All these things are very possible-Especially since all the eye witnesses say the same thing. Not sure why you are confused.

I think you're confusing TV police situations with reality, although in TV they miss a lot of their shots, whereas if you believe this account, he landed every one of his shots.  As I said, common sense. Supposedly, he was HIT by the car, thrown n the air and LANDED ON the hood, able to maneuer from that position, and WAS NOT INJURED.  Get serious.

That prevents you from breaking your leg or smashing your shin when struck by a car?  Amazing.

I don't know if this is true or not but I have read this in several sites:

--Ayanna Evans, 19, who lives in a neighboring apartment complex, said she never saw the agent on the car.

She said she happened to look out the window to see the Honda backing up slowly, and a man in a red shirt walking toward the car.

"Then I heard, 'Pop, pop, pop,'" she said. She yelled at her children and aunt with her in the apartment to get down.

Apartment resident Prince Watson said he also saw the driver going in reverse, with no one on the car.

"She wasn't speeding or driving erratic at all. I heard the agent say, 'Stop.' He was in the street and started shooting and walking toward the car," Watson recalled. --

do you actually believe cops would open fire on a female"backing up slowly" in an apt complex full of witnesses?

This is the reason I say that I don't know if it is true or not.But I think that 14 shots from a trained person is not self defence

Yes, cops wearing body armor and loaded with gear going into what they've been told might be a hot take down get a mindset of when something will happen. Thankfully most are trained well enough not to do something stupid but some do.

She's probably a liar and in on it with the family of the deceased meth addict to get money.

It's very common today to file a civil suit against the cops. If you get the right lawyer, you get money.

If the Border Patrol is shooting at you, that means you're probably doing something in violation of US federal law, and possibly also in violation of international law. Some people think that Congress should have gone ahead and given approval to finish the entire fence. They don't seem to have any problem buying unobtainium underwear in his n hers sizes for the entire US military, a couple hundred thousand steel posts should be pocket change by comparison. But, US/Mexico border policy has been a chronic political toothache for this country, for several decades now. Regardless, though, it's still Barry's Border, and Barry's Border Patrol, an attack on them roughly equates to an attack on the US and our government.  How fast could The Government push out some of those 'dragons teeth' to dissuade people from operating their cars along the border at all. Sad, that we have events like this in the 21st century, or that our border-peeps would even have to carry any kind of firearm to begin with.

Alvarado FLED a friend's apartment in Chula Vista when agents came with an arrest warrant for someone else there. The story above goes on to reveal: "Police say her car struck an agent as she was FLEEING!... and she drove with him on the hood for about 200 yards". That's two fricken football fields to put this in perspective. Kinda difficult then to lay the premise that you are innocent after all this took place. I guess having meth in your system at the time didn't help enhance her judgement skills either. You play... you pay.

Clearly this bigoted cop should have known his role and just let this nice young lady run him over. Give me a break. Let me give you journalists some advice, when you are trying to demonize law enforcement, and acquire sympathy for "the community", it helps to not post stories in which law enforcement are merely defending themselves from deranged members of "the community."

All I can say is jump on my hood in plain cloths and see how it goes. I'm going to assume you are a banger. It won't go as you expect.

The outrageous part to this story is that ICE obviously needs better munitions with much greater stopping power. It shouldn't take that many rounds to bring down a meth head.
05:26 PM on 12/08/2012
i have heard of several instances where people high on meth have taken several shots center mass and lived....not long ago a trooper was shot on a traffic stop by a meth head. trooper took one bullet just under the armpit and drowned in his own blood! the meth head was shot 7 times in the chest and lived...

This story has been totally destroyed by the media. First, he did not cave in that windshield by being hit by a car he was standing right in front of. A car wouldn't accelerate that fast. He jumped on that hood and the windshield caved in because he filled it full of holes. Second, those agents had no legal right or cause to detain her and should have never acerted such in plain cloths. Anyone can buy a dime store badge and I don't have to stop for Border Patrol anyway. They only have authority over illegal aliens. It says so in the law. Lastly, what was the results of his tox screen? How much steroid did he have in him? Now that the media has trashed her reputation and refused to lean on Chula Vista police for a comprehensive investigation and updates on where the investigation is right now. If this doesn't look like a coverup then there never was a cover up of anything anywhere.

......when told to stop, then stop............ being shot 14 times indicates to me she could have done something herself to prevent her own death..........
logic is very much like dominoes falling. americans cannot perform critical thinking because for reasons of sensationalism, or to create a lawsuit, a convenient spot is often picked at which to begin the story..........like in this case.

Border Patrol agents enforce federal law, and of course you have to stop for them. If they have reasonable suspicion that you are breaking the law they can pull you over.

Well, well, what matters it? Believe that too.

Indeed. What the OP said is as inane as saying "A highway patrol officer doesn't have the authority to pull me over and question me when I haven't committed a crime!"

Her supporters keep pointing out that she was a mother. Obviously not mother of the year if she was on probation for a drug violation, in a place known for illegal drug activity, and attempted to flee from law enforcement. If being in a place known for illegal drug activity was a violation of her probation, that might have been her motivation for attempting to flee.

If there was any argument for those laws limiting clips to 10 rounds this is it. He probably should have had a "double stack" to stop her sooner. Funny how criminals are thew first to sue.

I thought cops were exempt from those laws, lol, looks like I need to brush up on my gun laws

The guns magazine takes 10 bullets, but there are 14 bullet wounds. That means that either some bullets caused multiple wounds, or that this guy actually managed to reload. Whatever the case, I would guess that rage played a role here. He emptied an entire clip into her claiming that it was self defense. What do the hospital records say about the extent of his injuries?

I hope there's more people like that agent there. If I was that agent, I would of keep on shooting until I ran out of bullets and reload until all my magazine clips are all empty. that should teach these illegal criminal aliens a lesson about messing with the Federal Agents.

How do you know she's not an illegal alien? A BP Agent was serving a warrant okay and she thought they was coming for her.

He was dressed in blue jeans and a shirt. Did he pull his badge out first, or his gun?
12:23 AM on 12/08/2012
Hmmm?... let's see? If I was hanging on to the windshield wipers while she was trying to shake me from her car trying to kill me and I had a choice to try and show her my badge or gun.... I'd opt for the gun FIRST EVERY TIME!!!!!!

If someone pulled out a gun, and you are in your car, the gun is pointed at you, what do you do?
