    I know it for myself. That killing is the last alternative.

    True but dogs deserve fun once in awhile.
    Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.

    In real life when you shoot somebody they die, and this person was killed. Thats what I'm concerned about, if the officers used other methods to stop this child, they could of saved a life.
    someone throwing rocks at law enforcement agents of a sovereign nation is arguably someone I don't think should be saved.

    Warning shot also kill, best know where the bullets are going and preferably into the intended target, not some passerby at 1500 meters away and shooting into the air well what goes up must come down. Border patrol and street patrol is like comparing apples to oranges. The border patrol is out in the desert on their own, probably the nearest backup better than 50 miles away or more.

    Can you not READ quotes??

    7) USE OF FIREARMS - Immigration cannot use their weapons unless they believe that a person is going to kill or seriously hurt them or some other person. "Warning shots" are expressly prohibited.

    Same for you Sparks, the .PDF here quoted is rules, the other was an article discussing the PRO'S AND CON'S just to give you context.

    Rules > Opinion pieces.

    Just like Lead > Stone.
    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.

    Then maybe the rules should change.
    I'm against the taking of life, unless their is a clear and present danger. And I'm sorry, throwing rocks from 30 yards isn't life threatening.

    No injuries were reported. Treviño said it is Border Patrol's policy to not fire warning shots when agents fear for their safety."We do not fire warning shots," he said. "We shoot because we fear for our safety and we're trying to remove the threat."
    Border Patrol: Agents bombarded with objects fire shots into Mexico | mexico, agents, objects - Local - Brownsville Herald

    The AGENTS COULDN'T fire warning shots. Like I've said over and over. Pro's don't do that, actors and fools fire warning shots.

    Pro's shoot to kill.

    Clear and present danger is all a matter perception of your enviroment, location, ability to defend yourself and in this case where the nearest back up is, how many are there and if there are more hiding some where. Aggressive action towards these officers was a challenge to their authority in patroling the border. They also could have been jumped by others hiding and then the weapons taken from the officers and then used on them. These types of scenerio's have gone down numerous times.
