Sheriff: Homeowner Shot & Killed Gunmen Pretending To Buy Roosters



” Hidalgo County investigators are questioning a homeowner who claimed he shot and killed two men in self-defense. It all happened off Sioux Road and Mariposa Street just north of Donna around 7:04 p.m. Sunday. Investigators said two men arrived at a ranch in Alamo where they claimed they wanted to buy roosters.

The two men drew guns but the homeowner told deputies that he reacted by getting his weapons and shooting at the armed men. Both men died from their gunshot wounds at the scene. One victim was shot twice in the head. The other victim was shot twice in the upper torso.

The Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office reported that there is reasons to justify that it could be categorized under Home Castle Law self-defense case:
– The men were not invited into the home
– The home owner felt his or his friends life were in danger of deadly force
– The home owner was not engaging in criminal activity “


   This case has some suspicious aspects to it and as such the police are not yet ready to declare the shootings justified .

Michael Hastings, ‘Rolling Stone’ Contributor, Dead At 33




” Michael Hastings, the fearless journalist whose reporting brought down the career of General Stanley McChrystal, has died in a car accident in Los Angeles, Rolling Stone has learned. He was 33.

Hastings’ unvarnished 2010 profile of McChrystal in the pages of Rolling Stone, “The Runaway General,” captured the then-supreme commander of the U.S.-led war effort in Afghanistan openly mocking his civilian commanders in the White House. The maelstrom sparked by its publication concluded with President Obama recalling McChrystal to Washington and the general resigning his post. “The conduct represented in the recently published article does not meet the standard that should be met by – set by a commanding general,” Obama said, announcing McChrystal’s departure. “It undermines the civilian control of the military that is at the core of our democratic system.” “



” A contributing editor to Rolling Stone, Hastings leaves behind a remarkable legacy of reporting, including an exposé of America’s drone war, an exclusive interview with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at his hideout in the English countryside, an investigation into the Army’s illicit use of “psychological operations” to influence sitting Senators and a profile of Taliban captive Bowe Bergdahl, “America’s Last Prisoner of War.” “
