Guardsmen related shooting being investigated

| April 19, 2024

A member of the Indiana National Guard fired in the direction of an illegal alien. The incident that sparked the shooting involved an illegal alien stabbing another illegal alien on the Mexico side of the wall. The person that was shot escaped deeper into Mexico. Texan officials arrived at the scene to treat two wounded individuals for non-life-threatening injuries.

From the Military Times:

The bulletin, shown during the NewsNation video report, notes that at about 1:10 p.m. on April 14, a Border Patrol agent was notified by Army personnel that “a migrant was seen stabbing another migrant on the Mexico side of the U.S. border wall in the El Paso Sector near the Ysleta Station.

“The subject who was shot fled back into Mexico,” according to the bulletin.

The Texas Department of Safety contained the scene and two wounded individuals were treated for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the bulletin. The news outlet reported that the soldier who fired at the migrant was with the Indiana National Guard.

“The Indiana National Guard is aware of the incident that happened Sunday, April 14,” Indiana National Guard officials told Army Times in an email statement. “We support and care for our soldiers and airmen supporting Operation Lone Star.”

Indiana Guard officials deferred any further comment about the incident to the Texas Military Department.

“Damn it El Tee, if it’s on THAT side of the fence, and it ain’t threatening anyone on THIS side of the fence, then let it be. Do. Not. Shoot! Let ’em stab & kill each other. On THAT side of the fence. DO. YOU. UNDERSTAND. EL TEE? Now I got to go and fill out a butt load of paperwork to try and cover yer ass!”

(I don’t know, nor do I care, what rank of person did the shooting. But I thought a Butterbar would sound funny, given our experiences. Feel free to substitute and replace with the rank of your choice)

The suspect that was shot fled back into Mexico. So he WAS on this side of the fence, committing a violent felony and the soldier stopped him. They need to slap a medal on his chest, not investigate him for a crime.

But this is 2024 bitches. Clearly he shot the Mexican person not to save the other Mexican persons but because he hates the Mexican people. It will go even worse for him if he is of Mexican decent as that will make him a traitor to his people. Unless he proclaims his allegiance to Hamas and socialism. In which case he will get a medal even if he was involved in a drug deal gone wrong with everyone involved.

Prove me wrong.

“…. on the Mexico side of the U.S. border….”

For the love of the dark gods of journalism can’t anyone write a coherent article anymore?

No. The Spirits of Henry Grady and Lewis Grizzard…weep.

A Medal and Range Time for the Guardsman.


We cannot assume he was Mexican merely because he came from the Mexican side of the border. He might be Russian or Chinese or Albanian or any other criminal group that infiltrates through our southern border.


Clearly the guardsman was multi-culturally racist. If he is like a few senior NCOs I know he hates everyone.


Indiana National Guard needs to work on rifle marksmanship.

If the stabber was able to flee, then shot placement needs improvement.

At least he hit the guy, assuming the stabbed self identifies as a male. If he was a member of the Imperial Star Fleet, he couldn’t hit the broad side of a Death Star.


That will be our only saving grace when the October Revolution begins.


I’m completely surprised the Guard is actually armed on the border. No sarcasm intended.


That was my thought as well. Usually it’s just a “finger drill” show of force.


Fire to prevent a violent illegal alien from killing people, go to Leavenworth if you actually hit him.

Say, why don’t folk want to join?

The investigation is standard for anytime a projectile leaves a firearm and hits a human being, and just means that facts are being gathered.

Texas DPS investigators, working hand in hand with Texas National Guardsmen, both under the direction of the same governor and performing the same mission, aren’t looking to hang anyone up.

Not the first time someone on Operation Lone Star has shot someone in line of duty. Last I checked, nobody got in trouble for it.

The Indiana guy will be fine after some retraining at the range.

Indiana National Guard Press Release.
“The governor and the Adjutant General recognize the gravity of this situation and have directed a marksmanship stand-down to fully retrain and certify our Guardsmen to hit what they aim at and, if they do miss, to immediately re-engage and continue doing so until the threat is down. We do this willingly in defense of our National Sovereignty. Direct your questions to the trash can, cuz we aren’t answering them.”

That is exactgly what they should be doing. Shoot enough of them and the flow will indeed slow.
