The presence of armed militia members working on their own in a region known for human smuggling, drug smuggling and illegal immigration has added one more variable to an already complex and tense situation.

Michael Brown, 18, was shot and killed in a confrontation with police in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Mo., on Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014. Brown suffered a bullet wound to his right arm that may have occurred when he put his hands up or when his back was turned to the shooter, "but we don't know," a pathologist hired by the teen's family said Monday, Aug. 18, 2014. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson, File) FILE - This Nov. 6, 2011 file photo shows pieces of a chimney that toppled and went through the roof after an earthquake in Sparks, Okla. Man-made earthquakes, a side effect of some high-tech energy drilling, cause less shaking and in general are about 16 times weaker than natural earthquakes with the same magnitude, a new federal study found. People feeling the ground move from induced quakes _ those that are not natural, but triggered by injections of wastewater deep underground_ report significantly less shaking than those who experience more normal earthquakes of the same magnitude, according to a study by U.S. Geological Survey geophysicist Susan Hough. However within 6 miles of the fault, artificial and natural quakes feel pretty much the same, she said.
