Who said the Wild West was a thing of the past?

They've asked the Federal gvt for help. That ought to be interesting.

i'd hold off before believing that story. though certainly plausible, this is texas, and the texas rangers wouldnt be standing for this, and neither would perry. though i could see obama trying to keep it quiet, that wouldnt happen here.

This much appears to be true.

If these criminals had taken refuge in these outlying ranches, then I would think that it would make sense not to let it get too much U.S. media coverage. If an assault is planned, it would be better not to let the bad guys get too much advance notice so they could escape? Or maybe letting them escape would serve both govts, so they didn't have to confront the issue more publicly? I'd guess that if this did get wide media coverage, it would have an impact on any amnesty legislation that might be in the works?

To what degree has the Federal govt responded to the mayor's concerns?
