So they say...
« on: January 10, 2017, 03:19:15 PM »
Curious to see how this will turn out, but at this point I'm calling b.s. on these guys...

PRESIDIO COUNTY A late-night shootout with an unknown attacker or attackers, potentially from Mexico; an attempted RV theft or kidnapping; two men wounded as result of lax border security. This is part of a dramatic narrative circulating on the internet about a Friday night incident that left two men with severe gunshot wounds.

According to local law enforcement, however, the story is not supported by evidence at this point.

I read this earlier this week.  It sounds pretty far-fetched.

Concocted stories always get outed in the end. The more elaborate, the quicker it occurs.

Time will tell.

But our AG head hasn't retracted his release. I hate politics and politicians who don't care about the truth and decency.

Everything is in walking distance if you have enough time.

Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

Ya'll don't miss Dan rather?

Dprather, I do believe you're poking the hornet's nest. I think I'll step out of the way and let 'em  come for you instead.  :D
