Heroic Rancher Killed in Action, leaves 4 dead Cartel Hitmen in blazing Gunbattle (Videos)

When Mexican Marines arrived at the San Jose Ranch, 15 kilometers from Victoria, Tamaulipas, the scene was bleak: The austere main house was practically destroyed by grenades and heavy gunfire. Outside of the home, they found four bodies. Cautiously, and with their weapons drawn, the troops continued inspecting the exterior and found two more gunmen, wounded and unconscious, but alive. Inside the house only one body was found, riddled with bullets and with two weapons by it's side. The body was identified as Don Alejo Garza Tamez, the owner of the ranch...the man had created his own defense strategy to fight alone, placing weapons at every door and window...trucks entered the ranch and...gunmen got out of their trucks, fired shots in the air, and announced they came to take possession of the ranch. They were expecting the terrified occupants to run out, begging for mercy with their hands in the air. But things didn't go as expected. Don Alejo welcomed them with bullets; the entire army of gunmen returned fire...Various gunmen were killed on sight. The others, in rage and frustration, intensified the attack by swapping out their assault rifles for grenades...a 77 year old man, who before death, took out four gunmen, fighting the same as the best soldiers: with dignity, courage, and honor....

In Vietnam era G.I. slang, the highest compliment for a hard fighting comrade killed in battle was: "He bought the farm, but he took a lot of them with him". Don Garza, the definition of manly courage, fought a desperate battle against overwhelming odds and was still so hard to kill, the enemy had to use high-explosive grenades to prevail against him!. Don Garza decided it was better to fight on his feet than live on his knees against the forces of evil raping his homeland, personally sending 4 murdering cartel scum to hell and dealing out serious pain to several more. He died hard with his boots on, and the world, especially Mexico, is a lesser place without heroes like him. R.I.P., Don Alejo Garza!...(Call me cynical, but I cannot help but wonder, however, how many Mexican gun laws he violated collecting the firearms he used in his last stand)....(S9)
