God-is-a-Taco: Jose Rodriguez, the Mexican "John Smith" if ever there were one. 

Border agents are generally allowed to use lethal force against rock throwers.

That's... kind of disturbing. It should be age-restricted, I hope.

Nope. All ages are invited to throw friendship rocks. Latest trend is to write kind messages like "we love you" on the friendship rocks before hurling them to their recipient.

Hard thing to deal with, really. Safety of the officers is certainly a concern. Throwing rocks isnt childs play; in fact, stoning was an old method of capital punishment.

These guys have to protect themselves. They could have been hurt or killed. The act of self defense is warranted on events like this.

Well now, I bet he won't try that again.

inner ted: inner ted: this is why we are supposed to rely on PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE that are trained to know the difference that you obviously cannot discern.

the only amazing thing here is how many people, yourself included, are ok to shoot people in the back.

PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE don't wait while someone who's used lethal force on them (rocks can kill you, Border Agents do not wear helmets) reloads or turns back around to return fire.

No, because one of them is a dirty Messican in people's mind. There's no age cap on racism and xenophobia.

Tatterdemalian: unlikely: Have we been pushing Mexicans out of their homes to build settlements across what used to be the border?


Then dump the dipshiat analogy.

Americans pushed them out of their homes and off their land. Sure, it was two hundred years ago, but I have no problem making you pay for what my ancestors did.

Actually, we didn't. Mexicans who lived in the new territory of Texas were welcome to stay.

I'd like to see a north/south Korea DMZ between us and mexico. If you make it across the minefield you get to stay.

Basically, the BP is a farking pussy and Americans should find out who he is and hunt him down.

Lunaville: taurusowner: Do they issue BP agents helmets?
Not so CSB. At an IP station in Iraq, one of the guys in another squad took off his ACH to fix the straps and got hit in the head with a rock thrown by some of the beggar kids. Apparently the concussion was bad enough that he got sent to Germany that week. Rocks are no joke.

\No, no one shot the kid
\\But "rock" doesn't always mean pebble, rocks can seriously fark someone up

Throwing the rock is an act of violence. We can't pretend it is a Ghandi like act of peaceful, non-violent protest. That said, the incident was handled correctly and honorably where you were in Iraq. The Border Patrol agents who discharged their firearms in this incident, at the least, should be dismissed from their jobs promoted.

Shadune: The US has gone too far over the line in valuing property rights over human rights.

Property rights weren't at issue here. Immigration law was, as well as the law governing dealings with police.

"Human rights" means nothing if it is code for your private opinion on how nicely people deserve to be treated. Apparently, most Americans embrace some idea of human rights that is consistent with shooting rock-throwing suspects, and ultimately rights have to be defined democratically. It's that whole "Govt. of the people, etc." concept.

The U.S. being "over the line" -- and "far" over it -- makes me wonder whose line you're using. I'm trying to picture other national borders I've visited where this might be handled more tenderly...

Japan -- Probably not a killing, but certainly a beating.
Korea -- Death
Singapore -- A beating, possibly followed by death.
Malaysia -- Don't want to think of it.
Thailand -- A beating and a possible killing, or if you have money on you, a beating and a robbing.
Cambodia -- Some combo of beating, killing and robbing.
U.A.E. -- Too lazy to chase you in the first place, and too incompetent to hit you, but no one would blame them for trying.
Saudi -- Like U.A.E., but the rock-throwing would seal your fate.
Spain -- A beating, possibly followed by death.
France -- Probably gentler than the U.S., unless you were obviously African.
Italy -- Hard to say, but I think they'd try to run you over with the cruiser, especially if you were African.

Obviously facetious and hand-waving, but I'd bet it's not far out. It's hard to compare, but for a border of its sort I'd bet the US-Mex border is policed more mercifully than average in this world.

BuckTurgidson: Good luck, bro, hope you too aren't shot by mistake by one of your own over-amped cow-orkers.

I have known many peace officers and I can inform you unequivocally that the rumors of widespread cow orking among them are greatly exaggerated. In reality, our nation's law enforcement agencies receive very few complaints of cow orking. These are always taken seriously, investigated by transparent, independent bodies, and if substantiated result in strict measures including retraining, suspension without pay, termination, or even criminal charges. Further, the cows involved are treated humanely according to SPCA guidelines and given veterinary care if they were orked to the point of injury. They are never put down, but are rehabilitated to allow them to ork naturally and without discomfort.

You need to educate yourself before you smear people on the Internet, sir.

Or they could have just retreated out of rock throwing range and let the kid flee back to Mexico.

My idea to virtually eliminate illegal immigration... "The Wheel of Fortune"

Any person caught in the US illegally, or found to be harboring or employing illegal aliens will spin the wheel.

The spaces on this wheel of fortune will have the names of every country in the third world... except Mexico.

Whatever country it lands on... that's where they send you. I estimate it will all but eliminate the problem within 2 years... at which time... we can g'head and pay 6 bucks for a head of lettuce.
