19-year-old US citizen shot in the back by border patrol over marijuana...

A 19-year-old U.S. citizen, Carlos Lamadrid, was shot in the back three times by a U.S. Border Patrol agent while fleeing across the southern border into Mexico in May of 2011. The young man, a native of Douglas, Ariz., was unarmed and was reportedly transporting marijuana. Lamadrid died from his wounds in a local hospital shortly thereafter.

Lamadrids's mother, Guadalupe Guerrero, is now suing the federal government, alleging that the border agent who shot her son acted "outside the scope of his authority," according to the family's attorney, Richard Gonzalez.

"The border agent violated this kid's civil rights. The only time an agent is allowed to use deadly force is in order to protect him or herself or to protect others in the area," Gonzalez told The Huffington Post. "This kid was unarmed and fleeing. He posed no threat to the agent. Shooting him was grossly negligent."

3. Why not say "drug smuggler shot while fleeing to Mexico"?

This isn't some kid busted with a joint. They had 48 pounds of marijuana, accomplices were throwing rocks at the agents, and he was shot while attempting to illegally enter Mexico by climbing the border fence.
Can't get to worked up over this one.

Edit to fix the amount of weed.

5. This wasn't an execution.

They didn't line him up against the wall and shoot him in the back. He was fleeing the scene of a crime with accomplices assaulting the agents. In fact, he wasn't just fleeing the scene of a crime, he was fleeing into a foreign country. I'm sure the Mexican authorities would have been real friendly to our agents had they followed him.
I guess they should've just thrown up their hands and said, "Shucks, we couldn't catch ya. Have fun south of the border, bring us back some souvenirs!"
Just because Arizona cops are racist assholes doesn't mean Latino criminals are always right. And just because weed should be legal doesn't mean some punk should get a free pass when smuggling it into the country.

The other DUmmies are distressed by the fact that the young hero was killed.  Never mind the fact that more people are killed by drug gangs every minute than are killed by the border patrol or by regular cops in a year.

What struck me about this is the unsaid tone to this ie it isn't just 'some' Arizona cops, but apparently ALL Arizona cops that are characterized this way. Juxtaposition that again Latino criminals aren't always right, just most of the time.  :lmao: These idiots are so transparent, even the ones that seemingly support something we might agree with, they still have to tiptoe around the eggshells of racial hysteria whether they buy into it or not.

I wonder what Elliott Ness would have to say about this.  ??

The key point here is this kid was a drug smuggler specializing in marijuana.
to the DUmmies, marijuana justifies all things.

The kid could be a mass murderer, and as long as he supplied marijuana he would be OK with DUmmies.

3 shots in the back huh? Boarder Patrol needs better ammo or more target practice.

Gah, he was breaking the law.  Stupid ass should have thought that his death could be a possiblity before attempting to smuggle drugs.   :rant:

Mom should just shut up and realize she raised a criminal.
