    Mexico teen killed by US Border Patrol, anger high

    CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico A U.S. Border Patrol agent fatally shot a 15-year-old Mexican boy after a group trying to illegally enter Texas threw rocks at officers near downtown El Paso, U.S. authorities said Tuesday.
    The shooting, which happened Monday evening beneath a railroad bridge linking the two nations, drew sharp criticism from Mexico, where the government said Tuesday that "the use of firearms to repel attacks with stones represents disproportionate use of force, particularly coming from authorities who have received specialized training."
    It was the second death of a Mexican at the hands of Border Patrol officers in less than two weeks, and the case threatened to swell into a full-blown international incident when U.S. and Mexican officials traded suggestions of misconduct.
    Arturo Sandoval, a spokesman for the Chihuahua Attorney General's office, said a spent 40-mm shell was found near the body raising the question of whether the fatal shot was fired inside Mexico, although he did not explicitly make that suggestion. That would violate the rules for Border Patrol agents, who are supposed to stay on the U.S. side of the border.

    Lethal force isn't the appropriate response to rock throwing.

    Ever heard of "stoning"? A rock can be a lethal weapon.


    Problem is the Border Patrol hasn't killed enough people lately. They need to shoot a few hundred more. Any ****er trying to illegally cross the border who is dumb enough to throw rocks at an armed man needs to be ****ing shot before he's living next door to you.

    The hells? Yes it is. Throw rocks at police/border patrol get shot. Solves the problem of our people getting maimed/killed/injured by rocks thrown at them. Besides, what a silly comment you make, what should they do? Pick up some stones and throw them back???

    Did you ever hear of that old Biblical way of executing people, called stoning? Rocks can hurt and kill. There's one thing that bullets can prevent, repeat rock throwing.

    That is for movies. Real Life you don't carry less then lethal equipment to deal with a group of people stupid enough to thrown stones at armed law enforcement officers. You throw rocks, you get shot. Simple, easy, safe for our people.

    Or do you think our Agents should risk life and limb? Why do you hate them??

    I just wanna clear something up when it comes to physically stoning someone.



    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.

    I think this is a reasonable force, since rocks could cause a risk of life to them. Plus ever heard of something called stoning? Aka Lapadation

    Stoning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia So yes throwing stones is a risk to the officers, so I think they reacted with the right move thought they could have just shot him in the leg in my own opinion.

    Less than lethal isn't "just for movies", and it's far better to use less than lethal weapons on a 15 year old throwing rocks than to kill him.

    And I don't hate our boarder patrol agents, but I also don't hate young Mexican kids either. They shouldn't be throwing rocks at our guys, but there are better ways to take him down than to lethally shot him.
