I cannot imagine the desperate danger of waltzing around with large open containers of gasoline, in the presence of a high pressure, high volume fountain of gasoline. Horrible; and speaks to the depraved nature of humanity. How much does gas cost in Mexico? Is "free" such a compulsion to risk entire families? If that whole culture is such, we are doomed.

Surprising that static electricity, any cell phone or nearby vehicle didn't detonate that sooner, surprising they all didn't get killed.

Be safe folks, a few gallons of fuel isn't worth it. Nobody in that video appeared to be starving, just greedy beyond comprehension. "Come on up to America!"

They have thousands of these wasting gas but if a pipeline up here spills a quart of oil the company gets sued for millions of dollars.

I read that also. Apparently shutting down some pipelines is causing a shortage in parts of the country but not all pipelines are shut down.

Mexico Is a **** house of corruption and criminality. I've read that PEMEX has recorded 48,000 incidents of pipeline tapping this year. Another internet article I read recently is that trucking companies are armor proofing their tractors to. help thwart hijacking.....on the open road. Read testimony from El Chapo's NY trail that a past President of Mexico wanted a $250 million dollar bribe, El Chapo's cartel settled with $100 million. Corruption in Mexico is a cultural inheritance as a Spanish colony. With the drug cartels, Mexico is rotting.

Do we want these people in our country? They violate our immigration laws, they obtain fake driver's licenses and SSN's, they will commit ID theft, they will work and not pay income taxes, they ignore traffic regulations....DUI...no problem, no paid fine, they ultimately obtain welfare. This is a population that has evolved with no ethical standards.
Do we really think they will change their ideas, culture, and habits when coming to our country? Of course not. They show that by illegally crossing our border, filing fraudulent tax returns, illegally obtaining numerous welfare and other benefits, etcc.

The problem is, it doesn't matter what the reason is, if the people bring their bad attitudes and criminal intent we don't want them.

Yep, totally different culture that we don't need. And not just Mexicans either.

I was thinking the same thing, about the waste, as well as the environmental damage. I used to work in a production environment, and the EPA and OSHA regs got SO out of hand, it was crazy. Spill a few ounces of ANY cleaning solvent, and everyone went into a panic. Reports were required, new procedures HAD to be written, and so forth, when in reality, a quick wipe with a paper towel, and the "spill" was gone. But let's send some of our "green weenies" to Mexico, to fix the problem.

And the "cultural thing", NFW!! These people are steeped in GENERATIONS of living in squalor, that (sadly) it's all they know, and the only way the know to live. They carry it around their necks like a millstone. And furthermore, we don't need more people "importing" that kind of behavior to America, as we already have pockets of that here, home grown.....

The price of jumping off a 500 foot cliff shouldn't be death. The price of driving into a brick wall at 100 mph shouldn't be death.

Reality is what it is.

Gasoline produces ignitable vapors that are 3 to 4 times heavier than air and can travel for great distances along the ground. Gas vapors tend to accumulate in low or enclosed spaces. These vapors can then be ignited by a nearby open flame, such as a pilot light of a water heater.

The vast majority of gasoline-related burn injuries and deaths involve males under the age of 45. Most occur between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

1 gallon of gasoline = 20 sticks of dynamite!

I would expect that number to rise as some will undoubtably succumb to infections and other issues from the burns and poor quality of care for traumas like this.
