This video is pretty disturbing…
An Arizona man caught the disturbing moment when he was hit by a border patrol SUV in front of his house. The vehicle continues on down the road after the collision. The victim just repeated, ‘They ran over me, bro.’
The victim is 34-year old Paulo Remes, of the Tohono O’odham Nation.
He told the Arizona Daily Star, ‘I ran into the dirt road in front of my house, because I know they’ll try and hit me.‘
The video shows Remes, who is holding the camera, walking into the middle of the road in the Tohono O’odham Nation where he stands for a few seconds before the white Chevy comes straight at him, knocking him to the ground.
Remes claims that the vehicle didn’t stop even after hitting him, and that the agent driver didn’t check to see if he was okay.
Remes was standing in the middle of the road at the time of the incident.
He said that the driver of the SUV had turned on the siren, which he took as a sign that the paramedics had been called, but that wasn’t the case. The SUV didn’t stop and just continued on its way.
Remes was eventually taken to hospital where he was treated for minor bruises.
He told the Star, ‘I’m doing all right, I’m just a little sore, really.’

Remes says that he was looking for an outside speaker to listen to music while he was talking to his cousin on a landline. When he saw the SUV coming toward him, he turned on his cellphone to record what he expected would happen.
‘I think he saw me on the landline and didn’t think I was recording,’ Remes said.
An investigation has been launched as a joint effort with Border Patrol and Tohono O’odham Nation police.
Tohono O’odham Nation Chairman Edward D Manuel responded to the video in a statement on Friday, calling it ‘disturbing’.
‘The safety and well-being of the general public is the Nation’s top priority, and the Nation’s leadership is monitoring this issue closely,’ Manuel said.
Border Patrol also released a statement about the incident saying: ‘We stress honor and integrity in every aspect of our mission. We do not tolerate misconduct on or off duty and will fully cooperate with all investigations of alleged unlawful conduct by our personnel.‘

That’s just unreal footage.
What do you think of this situation?
Was Remes right that this was what people on the Tohono O’odham Nation deal with regularly?
Or was this an isolated incident with a guy standing in the middle of the road?
Let us know what you think in the comments.
Get Doug Giles’ new book:
Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
