I think this was talked about here yesterday, but I heard about it again on NPR this morning. I was surprised the MSM even bothered to mention it.

"Agent Andrea Simmons of the FBI in El Paso told 1200 WOAI news the bureau is 'aware' of the incident but is not investigating.

"At this point no federal laws that we investigate were violated," she said. "We are not involved."

On NPR, they talked to the sheriff of the county it happened in. He said that's the *second* time this has happened in his county. Why we didn't hear about the first time, I don't know.

But he said that with or without the Federal government's help, he's sick of it, and he's going to put a stop to it. Good luck to him, I say!
