    Sure rocks can kill... but not even a close comparison. Unless you're suggesting the 15 year old kid buried a cop in the sand...

    So please, let go of the "stoning by execution nonsense.
    Just thought I'd remind you. We're not talking about throwing pebbles, here.

    Keep us posted.

    And let's hope they are cleared, and this isn't turned politically motivated "made an example" situation. Because if this Agent is found in the wrong for anything short of gross misconduct... that endangers all Agents.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Shame really, as there is no reason to waste time or money on what is obviously a perfectly acceptable and constitutional law.

    The ingenious system of checks and balances outlined in our constitution is NEVER a waste of time or money.

    And where did you study constitutional law??

    Ironic and hypocritical how they'll support breaking laws - and then demand that other laws be applied.

    Can't have it both ways - they either support people being allowed ot break our laws or their support our laws being applied like they're written!
    I see this all the time here in Mexico. The mother cries after her son is killed because of her failure to teach her son to respect the law and other people. 100% her fault.

    I will give you an example.

    My ex-girlfriends cousin found out his girlfriend went out with another guy, so what does he do? He takes a gun to the other guys house. He confronts the guy with the gun but as he is squeezing the trigger, the other guy also had his gun and got a shot off and both of them died on the spot. 2 men dead over this woman.

    My girlfriends family, the guys mother and sisters were screaming and crying at the wake, and all I could think was "It is a little late for all this emotion. A little bit of teaching the right thing would have saved his life" It all seemed fake to me.

    Well, if the SCOTUS overturns the AZ law, it would likely have to overturn the US Code as well....very unlikely.

    Re: Mexico teen killed by US Border Patrol, anger high

    12 pages and only one poster brought this up.

    It is not relevant what his age was.

    The Border Officer is not going to card the kid(s) to see if they are of age.

    A group of people were attacking the officers and they had to stop it.

    If you think a criminal can't carry more than one form of weapon you don't live in reality.

    There has been nothing said about the other people that were with him. Did they have more lethal weapons? If it was in a tunnel, there was limited room and probably pretty dark. How would the officer know the guy was 15 and who would expect a 15 year old to be attacking Border Officers?

    Like I said before, 100% the mothers fault.

    Where is the law unconstitutional? How does the law Arizona passed in anyway rise to the level of SCOTUS review? Can you give some examples?
