New Years Eve was supposed to be quiet time for me. I was in my office preparing reports and finishing off 2011. Yes, I was actually working. Midnight came and gone without incident. By 12:30AM that all changed for the worse. The Mexcrements next door, without regard to the safety and well being of others, began to set off illegal fireworks and even discharged firearms in direct violation of Shannon's Law. Even without Shannon's Law, it's unlawful to discharge a firearm within a quarter mile of an occupied building in Pinal County.
After hearing the shot, (probably from a 12ga. Shotgun) I geared up, grabbed my rifle and called the Pinal County Sheriff's Office to report the shooting. Needless to say, the scumbag turds scattered like cowardly cockroaches when I turned on all of my outdoor lights. They knew they did wrong. They didn't make another sound until late the following morning.
Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm (Shannon’s Law)
Whether in the Phoenix area, or anywhere in Arizona, per A.R.S. §13-3107 “Unlawful Discharge of a Firearm, or a violation of Shannon’s Law” occurs when a person, with criminal negligence, discharges a firearm within the limits of any municipality and they are more than one (1) mile from any occupied structure. The reason this is called “Shannon’s Law” has to do with the tragic death of a young girl who was struck by a stray bullet which fell from the sky after some individuals had been firing a gun into the air while celebrating. This most often occurs around New Year’s Eve in certain areas of Arizona where it has become a tradition to fire shots at midnight. http://dmcantor.com/additional-crimes/unlawful-discharge-of-a-firearm-shannons-law

It would appear that I was not the only concerned citizen that objected to the illegal activities the Mexcrements next door were engaged in. I spoke with some other neighbors the next day and they were also angered and outraged by their senseless criminal behavior. It's been my personal experience that Mexicans have absolutely no respect or consideration for others, including neighbors.
Members of the US Border Guard deployed to my location on New Years Day to communicate a "don't break the law" message to potential law breakers that are known to infest my neighborhood. Since "Rancho Muerte" is a forward operating base for various projects and operations, we did some housekeeping and repair work. It was a day well spent and I dished out a crock pot meal, chocolate cake and cherry pie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IP4vN5Kajk4&list=UU9KrabMIJYWTalWWdnR4xYQ&index=1&feature=plcp
I just finished refurbishing the 26" Mongoose mountain bike the illegal aliens abandoned in the desert early last year. It turned out good. I spent less than $5.00 on the entire project. That was for the camouflage spray paint. I installed metal Shimano pedals salvaged from another bike. The grip shifts and riser bar were salvaged from an abandoned bike recovered during our BBC desert tour in December. We recover many bicycles, but most of them are damaged beyond repair and are sold for scrap. Procedes help us continue the fight to protect our country.
This refurbished bicycle will be deployed during our upcoming desert operation in late January. This is an excellent PR and propaganda opportunity. We are utilizing things left behind by the illegals to aid us in tracking them down.
