Daily Mail UK media bias and distortion.
As U.S. Border Patrol agents detained an illegal alien on the Texas side of the southern border with Mexico, they were pelted with rocks by other would-be illegal aliens who ran back across the border when the border patrol agents arrived.
A U.S. Border Patrol agent called out for the rock throwing assailants to stop.
As most should be aware of, rocks can seriously injure and kill.
In self-defense a border patrol agent then fired his weapon, a Mexican teenager, a smuggler of illegal aliens was killed.
For media comparison here are two different articles on the same incident:
First, from Fox News
Second, from the Daily Mail UK
Notice these lines in the Daily Mail article:
"The boy's sister, Rosario, said her brother was playing with serveral friends and did not plan to cross the border.
'They say that they started firing from over there and suddenly hit him in the head,' she said."
"The boy's mother said he had gone to eat with his brother, who handles luggage at a border customs office. While there he met up with a group of friends and they decided to hang out by the river, she said.
'That was his mistake, to have gone to the river,' she told a Mexican television reporter.'That's why they killed him."
According to that account in the Daily Mail article, the U.S. Border Patrol showed up and just started shooting.
The Daily Mail article also makes no mention that the Mexican teen was a "known smuggler" of illegal aliens.
Nor was there any mention of the Mexican soldiers who arrived and threatened the U.S. Border Patrol agents with their rifles.
This is not the first time by any means of Mexican soldiers violating the law and interferring with the U.S. Border Patrol.
Mexican soldiers have previously committed "acts of war" by trespassing the U.S. border and holding U.S. Border Patrol agents at gun point.
By omitting the other relevant info as just pointed out, the Daily Mail article presents a distorted rendering of the incident.
A media distortion of the incident, along with the inclusion of photos of the teen's grieving family members, without all of the facts, appears to be a deliberate attempt by the Daily Mail UK to incite anti-American sentiment.
This is like the media propaganda and distortion so often used against Israeli police doing their duty.
How many times has a biased MSM, with the help of anti-Israel AP and Reuters "stringers", incited anti-Israel sentiment with "stone-throwing youth" pitted against "heavily armed" Israeli police or soldiers?
Or a charge of "disproportionate use of force". Sound familiar?
That is exactly the charge made today by Mexican president Calderone.
The same media bias, distortion, and propaganda weapons.
About those stone-throwing youths, -Carl in Jerusalem writes:
"There's a strange perception in the West that 'stone throwing' is harmless. It's a perception that amazes me given that I can recall at least two instances in the United States in the last few years in which stone throwers were indicted for what stone throwing really is: attempted murder."
"Here's a video of stone throwers in action in Jerusalem on Sunday. I'd like to show you the video and then introduce you to a stone-thrower's victim."
Visit the link above to see the video at Israel Matzav's site.
Can you see what's happening?
Rocks can seriously injure and kill. Yet in a biased anti-American, anti-western media with an agenda, it is presented as some youngsters "throwing stones" pitted against "well-armed" Israeli police, or the U.S. Border Patrol.
The charge of a "disproportionate use of force" is made with a clear agenda.
In regards to our border, they wish to use this type of media propaganda to de-legitimise our right and effort to secure the border and stop illegal immigration. They will use this to try and de-legitimise the border patrol's right to self defense.
Would not be surprised if orders came down from the Obama Administration tonight instructing the border patrol to never use their firearms to defend themselves in any future confrontation with rock-throwing illegal aliens.
The de-legitimization of the right to secure borders, and the de-legitimization of the right to self-defense.
That is the clear agenda of the anti-American, anti-Western media.
And the Daily Mail UK is full of it.
