Texas Bans Shooting Immigrants From Helicopters
Officials in Texas announced on Thursday that State Troopers would no longer be allowed to open fire on suspects from helicopters after the recent killing of two immigrants.
While announcing the new policy, Texas Department of Public Safety Director Steve McCraw insisted that the ban on aerial shootings had nothing to do with the October 2012 death of two Guatemalan immigrants, who were gunned down by troopers in helicopter while they were hiding in the back of a speeding pickup truck near La Joya.
Aw Texas did the nicest thing today! Sweeties! They won’t shoot people who sneaked under a fence, from helicopters any more. Apparently now, you have to do it from the ground. Sporting chance and all.
I’m moving there right away!
