Let us, if we must have great actions, make our own so. All action is of infinite elasticity, and the least admits of being inflated with celestial air, until it eclipses the sun and moon.

Three Mexican men who turned themselves in to authorities in connection with the 2009 murder of an American teenage girl have been transported to an Arizona jail, authorities said.
Officials from the Tucson Police Department said 20-year-old Orel Vasquez, 26-year-old Christian Betza Vasquez and 29-year-old Juan Carlos Leon were taken to the Pima County Jail on Monday, two days after they surrendered to authorities at the U.S.-Mexico border in Nogales, Ariz.
Authorities have said the men are accused of breaking into a Tucson home in August 2009 and demanding drugs and money. The men later realized they had entered the wrong house and fled before trying to carjack a passing vehicle.
A woman driving nearby refused to stop, and police say one of the suspects opened fire through the driver’s window, fatally striking her 15-year-old daughter, Brenda Arenas, of Tucson, Ariz.
All three men were in the U.S. illegally, authorities said.
Source: Fox News or click here to see yet another instance of the failure of journalism in America, with UPI blatantly refusing to report the facts – not one mention of the fact that all three men were here illegally!
If the Federal Government had properly protected the borders as the law dictates, this teenage girl would still have her whole life ahead of her. The negligence of our Federal Government to protect the borders is directly responsible for the death of Brenda Arenas.
The family of Brenda Arenas should hold the goverment liable and sue the Feds for abject negligence in protecting its own citizens.
