Mom Of Drug Dealing, Rock-Throwing Mexican Sues BP

From Reuters:

Mother of slain Mexican teen sues U.S. Border Patrol agents

PHOENIX (Reuters) – Lawyers for the mother of a Mexican teenager fatally shot by U.S. border police filed a U.S. federal civil rights lawsuit on Tuesday, calling the killing "brazen and lawless" and the latest example of agents using excessive force.

So why would any Mexican or Central American think they could flee violence by coming to the lawless US? We should be all heading the other way.

The lawsuit says unnamed U.S. Border Patrol agents violated the constitutional rights of Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez, who was 16 years old when he died in the cross-border shooting from Arizona into Nogales, Mexico, in October 2012. An autopsy by Mexican authorities found the teen was shot seven times from behind.

"I want to know who assassinated my son and why?" Araceli Rodriguez, the slain boy’s mother, said in a statement released by her attorney. "I want to know why they have not been brought to justice. Isn’t that why there are laws?"

Huh? America doesn’t have any laws. Especially, immigration laws. Her son knew that.

The lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court in Tucson by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and others seeks unspecified damages against an undetermined number of agents. It also seeks a jury trial…

You didn’t know Mexicans have American Civil Liberties? (Which apparently include throwing rocks at any Americans they like.)

The border patrol has said agents were responding to reports of drug trafficking on Oct. 10, 2012, when they opened fire on a group that began throwing rocks at them from across the border on Mexican territory…

16 year old ‘children’ trafficking in drugs and throwing rocks? Who believes such lies?

The lawsuit said he had been "peacefully walking down the street by himself" when he was killed…

He was just taking an evening stroll by the border fence. And he was so deep in thought he didn’t even notice the commotion of the other ‘kids.’

In March, the border patrol directed its agents to try to take cover, or to move away, when confronted by rock throwers, rather than immediately firing.

Apparently, they have moved 45 miles away from the border, just to be on the safe side.
