Off-Duty Border Patrol Agent Dies After Car Crashes into House in Texas

By Steve Neavling

An off-duty Border Patrol agent was killed in a car crash in Texas over the weekend. 

Stephanie Denise Camacho, 25, was driving a 2020 Honda Accord when she crashed into a house about 2 a.m. in Laredo, KGNS-TV reports.

Camacho was the only person in the car. 

She was pronounced dead at the scene. 

A Border Patrol spokesperson said Camacho was a relatively new agent. 

No more details of the crash were available as of Tuesday morning. 

Laredo police are investigating. 

ATF Calls on People to Snitch on Ex-Lovers on Valentine’s Day

By Steve Neavling

The ATF had an unusual Valentine’s Day message: Rat out an ex-lover for illegal gun-related activity. 

In a tweet posted with a heart broken in two Monday, the ATF said “Valentine’s Day can still be fun even if you broke up.”

“Got an ex who buys or sells guns illegally? We would love to meet and treat them to a Valentine’s Day surprise!” the tweet read. 

The ATF encouraged people to call or email the agency’s tip line to report “a former (or current) partner involved in illegal gun activity.”

The Justice Department retweeted the message. 

But many social media users weren’t amused, questioning why the agency would encourage revenge, especially when a tip can lead to a potentially dangerous raid. 

“But what if you hate your ex but don’t have a grudge against the dog? You guys have custom no-knock raids tailored to order?” one user tweeted. 

Some criticized the ATF for past actions. 

“Hi yes, I’d like to report someone who set an entire compound full of children and their parents on fire, and shot anyone who escaped,” Spike Cohen, former vice presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party. “Then they went and trafficked guns to Mexican cartels, who used those guns to kill innocent Americans and Mexicans.”

Others saw no problem with the tweet.

“Wow, the amount of people triggered by this,” @Kokoshi tweeted. “And they accidentally helped this tweet spread like wildfire.”
