U.S. border agent shoots Mexican border crosser

Wed Jun 22, 2011 3:12pm EDT

(Reuters) - A U.S. Border Patrol agent shot dead a Mexican man on the California-Mexico border, U.S. and Mexican authorities said on Wednesday.

Michael Jimenez, a spokesman for the U.S. Border Patrol's San Diego sector, said an agent was involved in a shooting late on Tuesday, but could not give further details.

A newspaper reported the incident began after an agent attempted to arrest three men who crossed illegally into the United States about 1.6 miles west of the San Ysidro Port of entry, south of San Diego, at around 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

The San Diego Union Tribune newspaper said a second agent arrived to assist. Two of the men fled back into Mexico through an opening in the fence, while the other man resisted arrest.

As he scuffled with the agents, one of the men scrambled up the border fence and pelted the agents with large rocks and a piece of wood studded with nails, striking one of them.

As the man attempted to throw another rock, one of the agents opened fire, hitting him once. He fell off the fence and subsequently died in Mexico, it reported.

Jimenez confirmed a Border Patrol agent had been treated for injuries and released from a local hospital.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Mexico's foreign ministry confirmed the body of a Mexican national had been located in Mexican territory, following a "violent incident" on the border line.

The ministry said the use of firearms to counter attacks with rocks amounted to a disproportionate use of force. It condemned the death, and called for an "exhaustive" investigation into the incident.

Hurdling of deadly missiles to wound, maim or kill. The shooting is justified. Nobody should be expected to suffer being hit by rocks or other objects without the option of using deadly force. Early man used to fuck each other up by throwing rocks.

These damn badge wearing stormtroopers are trying to implement a police state on the slaves by firing all willy nilly at unarmed citizens for what....climbing a fence? Are we just going to take the word of these uniformed thugs with a god complex that rocks were hurled at them? And all you damn yuppies are just going to accept it because you are told it is done in your best interest. Enjoy your nanny state as it continues to take away your rights as you sheeple sit blindly by and take it in the ass dry. Alex talked about this once.









See what I did there? :action-sm

Hey Reuters asshole. The phrase is "shot and killed" not "shot dead." You are not announcing the death of William H. Bonney.
