Fake story exposed: 11-year-old Butte girl never shot two “illegal aliens”

gun girlSorry to all you gun rights and ammo nuts in advance; that story of the 11 year old girl in Butte, Montana shooting illegal aliens is a hoax. The story has been printed as fact on some anti-gun control and anti-immigration Web sites for their own propaganda purposes.  Isn't it funny how people who love guns and hate Mexican immigrants tend to think alike!

According to the Mt Standard:

A dramatic story about a shooting that supposedly happened in Butte last year is nothing more than an urban myth.

The bogus story has been circulating for the past year on Internet blogs and Web sites concerning a girl shooting two men who broke into her Butte home in November 2006.

According to the fabricated story, an 11-year-old Butte girl shot two “illegal aliens” with a shotgun after they broke into her home. The shooting supposedly took place on Nov. 5, 2006, according to Internet posts.

When asked about the authenticity of the events described in this story, Butte-Silver Bow Sheriff John Walsh told The Montana Standard in an earlier interview that his office never investigated such an incident.

“This never happened,” Walsh said.

 

The story claims the girl shot and killed the two intruders while she was home alone. The story doesn’t provide a street address or attribute the information to any official sources.

Walsh brushed off the story of an urban myth.

“It’s amazing how these things get around,” he said.

Numerous people from all over the United States have contacted The Montana Standard in the past year via e-mail or phone to verify if the story was true. The story is often given the headline “Home Invasion Gone Wrong.” A recent search for this story on the Internet search engine Google.com returned with more than 400 hits.

The story has been printed as fact on some anti-gun control and anti-immigration Web sites. The phony story identifies the 11-year-old girl as Patricia Harrington, who shoots and kills the two “illegal aliens” identified as Ralphel Resindez and Enrico Garza.

let me get this straight so if I like this story and don't like people who break our laws and invade my country I don't like "brown" people. In other words because most of the people who come here illegally are Mexican escaping from their piece of s**t piss hole country it's my fault if I don't like it. Only a stupid liberal could buy that

Just rememeber. This whole world has a problem. We cannot believe anything! In my travels. I see that everything is biased and a lie from the media and society.

Rumors and lies now become reality for many.

Why do we call this a rumor. It is just a big lie! Lies to promote political ideas. Maybe that is why our politicians are all lawyers. Because the first thing they teach lawyers. M is the importance on how to lie!

Lumping everyone into one group, like pro-gun and hate Hispanics are like lumping together anit-T party and the KKK. Only lazy writers would do that. Ones who can't be bothered to write in a thoughtful fact filled dialog.
I'm a T party, right wing, gun toting constitution loving conservative veteran who not only lives in a Hispanic neighborhood and gets along with all of them.

So much for this writers stereotype.

We are not all created equal or equally important. Not liberal politically correct but it is THE TRUTH! It is not "All good." Not all cultures are equal, some are inferior to others. Not PC but it is the truth. "Who are you to judge?" you ask? Well do you have a plan or not. We pride the Japanese and Germans on excellence of build quality and engineering. How did they get there? It is with DISCIPLINE and the teaching of SELF DISCIPLINE. No one climbs to excellence by just showing up. By denying the best and brightest to move at the pace of the inferior because to you "that is fair" is pure liberal idiocy. The cream DESERVES to rise to the top without the law being twisted to interupt it. You don't have to be religious to see that. Even mother nature has dictated that the strong move forward for the sake of the future of the race. Now all we have is universal dumbing down of the new American generations and the preaching of the lie that "we are all created equal." Bullshit, choke on it.

Don't believe for a second that you hardcore liberals aren't being duped. If the tools the hardcore liberal preached worked they would be used in training millitary personel. Children need discipline to learn self-discipline and also to learn to respect authority figures(parents , teachers, the law, etc...)This RESPECT often stays with them and prevents the thug mentality(rebel liousness) from being acted out later in life. Better education starts with giving a teacher authority to discipline and even throw out an unruly student. They cannot TEACH without students respect. They cannot get respect when a bad student is allowed to disrupt. Here is an idiot liberals perspective on fairness. Include the not so bright, disruptive kid in the class with good kids, and pass them to boot even if they belong 2 grades lower because that is fair. Doesn't matter if he slows the learning of the other kids because "the system" will pass them too. That "feels good" but it is not good. It isn't fair.

Facts just don't matter to the hardcord liberal. Their campaign is about feel good messages. "More peace", "better schools", "gun control" blah blah blah...They never ad up where this path is taking us. "Safety at all cost!". It is because of DISCIPLINE being removed from all walks of American life and especially the school system that America is going down the toilet. Students don't fear the teachers. Kids don't fear their parents. The thug on the street doesn't fear the law. It is the complete breakdown of the natural "civilized" path of AUTHORITY. It is the path of those that are "rebellious", in fact it breeds rebelliousness, and "who are you to tell me what to do?" Also, "who are you to judge me?" which is the most common MO of todays youth. My wife is a teacher and thanks very much to the super idiot liberals she has her hands tied on any kind of discipline to a student. She cannot stand them in a corner, sit in silence, or remove a "rebellious" kid from class. Liberal idiots!
