    "Six dozen defenseless men, women and teenagers were pushed up against a wall. A squad of professional killers opened fire on them with automatic weapons and then finished each victim off with a point-blank shot to the head."



    is it just me or does this seem staged? Really, did they clean the wall after everybody fell?

    interesting point you got there, I would have to agree it looks staged. Given that if they were shot by firing squad, there's be a lot of blood not only on the walls, but all over the people as well.

    Maybe they're clean, considerate killers and they washed down the wall and cleaned up the people for the photoshot. No body likes a messy execution, that just gives them a bad rep!

    See that's what I posted! Are we crazy Ben? When I think firing squad with automatic weapons I think of blood flying everywhere. Would that not happen? I personally only have experience in shooting water melons, which, depending on the caliber, makes a good mess.

    They are all kinds of automatic weapons that won't pass through. It just says that the were shot with one, that doesn't mean they were sprayed.

    He has to pee.

    See build thread.
    Whats wrong with that picture is that Mexico along with other human rights activists are quick to judge AZ, but can't seem to control the murders of illegal immigrants in their own countries. Wheres the outcry from Mexico over these murdered illegals that are in Mexico? Most of these people in the photo were illegals south of Mexico, working their way into the US.

    Those people were murdered elsewhere, and dragged into that building.

    I noticed that they should probably get out of that tall grass. There could be snakes lingering, and they may get bit, then there would be blood. They could have been considerate by mowing the grass, before telling all of those people to play dead.

    My thoughts too, they may not have gotten all of their facts straight before printing.
