Making the rounds this time, is the story of how much US taxpayer dollars were saved by the quick bullet action by an off-duty El Paso police officer when confronted by 3 armed felons who tried to rob him.
As the story goes:
Yee-Hah!, which means Amen!!! in Texas ….
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 = $1,000
· Air time for O’BASTARD to apologize in 30 minute speech = $25,000,000
What it actually cost:
· Four .40 Cal. 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.
What a great step towards balancing the budget!!!!!
I LOVE TO READ STORIES WITH HAPPY ENDINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The photo shown was actally taken from this set of photos from Brazil. If you notice in the background of one photo, for instance, you can see a storefront with the logo for Gravia, which is a Brazilian company.
Here is a possible Google Streetview of where the shooting could have taken place, judging by the color/design of the Gravia sign in the background that matches the photographs.
If you put this blog post through Google Translator, pretty much the same story emerges of 3 attackers stealing a backpack and getting shot by a plain-clothes officer, even so far as praising the officer for quick action — and yet, is dated in September 2008, when Obama hadn’t even been elected yet.
Actual US taxpayer savings: $0, because it didn’t even happen in the US.
