Ambush in Mesquite Texas
Here is where the video story once was. This URL no longer has active video. Shown below is the video that KDFW published before acquiring a cerebral cortex.
Video partially available with discussion here, at Breitbart.com
Here is where you can click and make your opinion known to KDFW. Rebecca Aguilar has been suspended. She should be fired. The newsroom editor who allowed this crap to escape the toilet bowl without an ass chewing must be held accountable as well. If you agree, go for it!
KDFW's phone number is (214)720-4444
KDFW's address is 400 N Griffin Street, Dallas TX 75202
Let 'em know you care!

I'm off to work.....More here later on this.
Later.....Back to blogging at 4:58 PM-------------------------------------------
OK, I'm back from work. Ms. Aguilar, you have no damned idea what you are talking about. You are a prying, ratings hungry yellow journalist, and not a very good one at that. You are dishonest with events, and you are ignorant of the law.
You imply the police took Mr. Walton's two previous shotguns to stop him from shooting the next intruder. No. The police commended Mr. Walton. He was defending his property, and quite possibly his life, both of which are legal in the great state of Texas......your own state. Mr. Walton's two previous shotguns were taken into evidence. He is not prohibited from purchasing another one to defend himself with again. Get your facts straight.
Mr. Walton obviously did not want to be photographed and he obviously did not want to answer your questions. That is not because "someone will come after him" as you state; that is because he does not want to speak with an ignorant, disrespectful news reporter like yourself. He made that clear in his first sentence to you. Why did you continue to impose yourself on this law abiding citizen who did not desire your company? Clearly, anyone who "might come after" Mr. Walton can obtain his address from previous news reports and the public record at the police station. Obviously someone who "might come after him" is not the police. So.....Someone who "might come after him" would be seeking retribution in the way of physical harm. Mr. Walton is wise to arm himself if that is the case. Wise, prudent, and legal.
You jammed yourself into his automobile door and continued to badger this elderly man with your questions and insinuations, even when he told you plainly and clearly he did not want to talk to you. He could not close his car door and back out of his parking place because of your actions. You forced him to stay against his will. Consider your actions Ms. Aguilar, consider them closely. Yes, this gentleman was upset. He had every right to be.
You asked "Are you a trigger happy kind of person? Is that what you wanted to do? To shoot?....To kill?" Who the hell do you think you are Ms. Aguilar? Do you have any idea, any idea at all in your sweet little head what a person goes through when they are forced to take another person's life to defend their own? No, you do not. Not an inkling. You self righteously declare "That's what I wanted the viewers to know." Know what? They don't have a right to know! It isn't their damned business. Your "viewers" simply need to refrain from climbing over Mr. Walton's fence at night, and they have nothing to worry about! The Grand Jury will decide this case Ms. Aguilar, not you.
I hope you enjoy your new job reporting on cake sales in Dime Box Texas........If they hire you.
Feel free to contact Aguilar's superiors.
