    "Out in the West Texas town of El Paso..."


    Three armed felons crossed the US border and attempted to rob an off-duty El Paso police officer dressed in civilian clothes while he stood in front of a bank. The plan was for two of them to grab his backpack and toss it to an accomplice on a stolen motorcycle. However, the well-prepared police officer shot all of them, killing two immediately. The third was shot in both arms and bled to death before the ambulance arrived.


    This is how much the US Taxpayer would have had to pay to prosecute these thugs:
    · Arrest and detention for 1 night = $6,000
    · Transportation for deportation back to Mexico the next day = $1000
    · Air time for Obama to apologize in 30 minute speech = $25,007,000

    What it actually cost:
    · Four .40 rounds = $1.00
    · Taxpayer savings = $25,006,999.00

    Apparently They Picked The Wrong Man to Rob This Time. And There Won't Be A Next Time!

    THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A 911 CALL IS 4 MINUTES.
    THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A .40 S&W ROUND IS ABOUT 1200 FEET PER SECOND.

    I LOVE TO READ STORIES LIKE THIS, WITH SUCH HAPPY ENDINGS.

    There are several different stories. However from what I have read and searched this is not in the USA. Some say this is in Brazil, but the victim is an officer from San Paolo.

    This has been circulating for at least 3 years.

    Also given the graphic nature of the thread it would be wise to put NSFW (not safe for work) or NSFC (not safe for children).

    To post this as it was a fact without the research is misleading. It took me less than 5 minutes to find out this didn't happen any where near the USA or during Obama's presidency.

    It's too bad that ALL attempted armed robberies don't end this way. Larry
