By all accounts, Arizona rancher Robert Krentz was a decent man who had the awful misfortune of being in the wrong place at the wrong time when he was murdered in cold blood.
The wrong place was his private property. Wrong, because Krentz, presumably an American citizen, was shot and killed by an illegal alien (allegedly) from Mexico. The wrong time was late Saturday night.
According to authorities, the motive for this cold-blooded slaughter may have something to do with the fact that the victim's brother, Phil Krentz, reported drug smuggling activity on the ranch to the Border Patrol.
That sound reasonable, right?
Pursuant to illegal alien justice, any gringo with the audacity to report a drug smuggling operation on his property to Border Patrol deserves to bleed to death. What could be fairer, more humane?
This ugly reminder of the traitorous neglect of American citizens by pro-illegal alien lunatics in the Obama administration was reported at Foxnews.com, in part (1) as follows;
â€œPHOENIX -- A prominent southeast Arizona rancher likely was killed by an illegal immigrant, but there's no evidence to suggest there was any confrontation that led to the shooting, authorities said Monday.
â€œThe body of Robert Krentz, 58, was located before midnight Saturday on his 35,000-acre ranch about 35 miles northeast of Douglas after his brother reported that he had lost radio contact with Krentz earlier in the day.
â€œAt a news conference Monday, Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever said Krentz was out checking water line and fencing on the land Krentz's family has ranched since 1907. Krentz had weapons with him in his all-terrain vehicle but didn't use them, according to Dever.
â€œInvestigators said Krentz apparently came upon one person when he was shot. Krentz was heard telling his brother "illegal alien" on the radio earlier Saturday, and the area of the killing is a known smuggling corridor, according to authorities.
â€œWhile Krentz was still in his vehicle, mortally wounded, he managed to drive the ATV away from the scene at a high rate of speed before becoming unconscious. The ATV still had its lights on and the engine running when authorities found it.
â€œFoot tracks were identified and followed approximately 20 miles south to the Mexico border by sheriff's deputies, U.S. Border Patrol trackers and Department of Corrections dog chase teams, authorities said.
â€œThe sheriff's office said Krentz's body was transported to the Cochise County Medical Examiner's Office for an autopsy to determine approximate time of death.
â€œSo far, there have been no suspects identified and no arrests.
"We are assuming he escaped south into Mexico," Dever said of the shooter.
â€œDever told a Tucson newspaper that while investigators don't have a motive yet, retaliation has been raised as a possibility. The day before the shooting, the victim's brother, Phil Krentz, reported drug smuggling activity on the ranch to the Border Patrol.
â€œAgents found 290 pounds of marijuana on the ranch and followed tracks to where they found and arrested eight illegal immigrants. All were still in custody when the shooting occurred, the Arizona Daily Star reported.
â€œU.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., whose Congressional district covers the area, issued a statement saying Krentz's killing is a horrible tragedy that deserves a swift and strong response.
"The cold-blooded killing of an Arizona rancher is a sad and sobering reminder of the threats to public safety that exist in our border communities," Giffords said. "It has not yet been determined who committed this atrocity or why, but I know that federal and local authorities are mobilizing every possible resource to locate and apprehend the assailant."
â€œGiffords said if Krentz's killing is connected to drug cartels or smugglers, the federal government must respond appropriately."
And just what the hell was the â€œfederal governmentâ€ doing in response to this murderous invasion of America, Rep. Giffords?
For his part, President Barack Obama (that still sounds odd, out of place, and wrong, does it not?) was engaged in the unilateral disarming of America.
When not involved in that despicable surrender to the forces of evil, our Marxist president was prodding Democrats in Congress to grant amnesty to the 20 million or so illegal aliens already here.
This makes perfect sense in the convoluted mindset of liberals who regard illegal aliens as â€œripeâ€ for picking and adding to the rolls of the Democrat party, which can no longer count on American patriots to vote for Marxist wackos.
What about Big Sis, the insufferable nanny fascist who goes by the name of Janet Napolitano and the absurd title of Secretary of Homeland Security?
No one seems to know for sure, but it seems a good bet that Nanny Janet is too busy welcoming â€œNewly Arrived Fugitivesâ€ to the land of free Tacos and Tequila to concern herself with a gringo rancher who was probably a racist Tea-party Republican who got what he richly deserved!
How much more of this idiocy will the American people tolerate before the streets of Chicago, Los Angeles. New York, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C. are flooded with millions of citizens demanding that the rule of law be enforced and that American sovereignty be defended by sending U.S. troops to the U.S.-Mexico border and that those here illegally be kicked back across the border?
