Arizona deputy shot with AK-47 by suspected illegal immigrant

posted at 9:51 pm on April 30, 2010 by Allahpundit

I mentioned this in an update to the Connie Mack post but it’s worth a post of its own given the national interest in the state’s new statute. Which, incidentally, wasn’t being enforced here: It doesn’t go into effect for 90 days, or possibly for much longer if opponents have their way.

The wound is apparently superficial, thank goodness.

Pinal County sheriff’s Lt. Tamatha Villar says the deputy suffered a superficial wound to his abdomen after being shot with an AK-47 assault rifle Friday afternoon.

Villar says the deputy was doing smuggling interdiction work and found bales of marijuana in the desert. He then encountered five suspected illegal immigrants, two armed with rifles, and was shot.

At last check, the suspects were shooting at police helicopters in hot pursuit. More from CNN:

Pinal County is located between Phoenix and Tuscon and has been described as a key transit point for illegal immigrants. Sheriff Paul Babeu told CNN that an estimated 80 percent of illegal immigrants eventually pass through his county along the way to other locations.

Critics of the new law have been demanding a fact pattern by which “reasonable suspicion” might lawfully arise. Well, this one seems promising: A desert search along a route known to be used by coyotes turns up illegal drugs, with further investigation revealing a group of people nearby. Under the circumstances, suspicion of a crime committed by illegals doesn’t seem so wingnutty. And, I emphasize, it’s just suspicion: Could be that these would-be cop-killers are bona fide U.S. citizens. But then, that’s what the law is for — to let cops ascertain status in dubious circumstances. Assuming they were all in a car on a suspected coyote route, were pulled over for speeding, and no one in the car could offer any address of U.S. residence, names of U.S. relatives, etc., shouldn’t “reasonable suspicion” obtain?

I’m sure this fine deputy, who I hope gets better soon and gets back out on patrol, was exercising his right as an officer to uphold the law. Unlike all the stars, politicos and race merchants who are against this common sense law.

How many people have to get injured or killed before our federal authorities start doing their job, like enforcing the federal law already on the books?

Atlanta Media Guy on April 30, 2010 at 9:58 PM

No, really? Bales of marijuana in the Arizona desert notorious for illgeals smuggling drugs and guys with an AK-47 nearby. Nah, just a coincidence…

God speed to the deputy. I hope it’s a three-stitches and you’re done kinda deal. With an AK-47 and illegals involved, it could’ve been a WHOLE lot worse.

Oh, and if this is a “key transit point,” WHY don’t we have border agents or the SWAT team down there with AK-47′s of their own.

This is reminiscent of the War on Terror. We’re in a war; Washington just hasn’t realized it yet.

Oh, and how great is this going to look tomorrow… May Day… come to our country illegally, shoot up our cops, and then riot in the streets because we won’t make you citizens. Somebody in this picture is just plain stupid. Is it us or them?

UnderstandingisPower on April 30, 2010 at 10:03 PM

I’m sure that this is just a reasonable response to that evil, racist Arizona law about enforcing existing Federal Immigration laws.

Jan Brewer is to blame for this self defense shooting by undocumented pharmacists.

SlaveDog on April 30, 2010 at 10:03 PM

E.J. Dionne, Jr. recently told Hugh Hewitt that the cause of the violence is all due to the influence of the NRA in Washington.

Yeah, sit down (oh, well really sit down). Here’s his argument:

Dionne:

The federal government has failed Arizona and Mexico by caving to the National Rifle Association, where we are helping, guns from our country are helping to arm the drug dealers and their folks below the border. So if there is a failure here, it’s a failure to pass decent gun laws. If these guns were coming the other way across the Mexican border into our country, we would be furious.

In his defense, Dionne did attribute the violence to the Mexican drug cartel. But he argued that it’s “easier” for those criminals to arm themselves.

The rest is here: Dionne contra Hewitt (and common sense).

“Suspected illegal immigrant shot with AK-47 by Arizona deputy.”

Any bets?

Unless they can spin it on it’s ears and say that Arizona created a “Climate of Hate” which made the illegal “immigrant” fearful and he had no choice but to shoot the deputy, and that I would not put past those schlamiels at all.

Can’t wait to hear the city folks comments, who never even walked a trail close to the border comment.

My boyfriend, from Salvador, waited for 12 years (sans his parents who got easy entry) and was recruited by the Contra war at 12 years old, is none too happy about the current “ahhh… they work at jobs beneath Americans will do let’s be COMPASSIONATE”.

There was no compassion for him. He has no compassion for those that take the illegal route. And he still makes less than most Americans but has NO PROBLEM with it and is sought after for his work ethic and pride in his work.
The Administration?
Compassion – no. Voting block and using the poor yes. We agree. And we have no compassion for illegal entry to the US.

Because of the Internet, there is this vast echo chamber and our advocacy reaches into corners that never would have been possible before, political messages are now able to reach those who are both serious and seriously disturbed…

creating the Council of Governors removing the responsibility of the National Guard from the specific state governors to the Council appointed by the President.

So now the AZ Gov cannot deploy the AZ NG without approval from the President and his Council of Governors? Was anyone paying attention when this happened?
