    No they don't Spot.
    Thank goodness for that. I thought maybe they were in the same position as the gentlemen involved at the Danziger Bridge Massacre five years ago. Perhaps the gung-ho officer in El Paso might find himself investigated. Maybe even Andrea Simmons might have her knuckles rapped in private for sheer utter stupidity in the face of bad news.

    from what little i see here it looks like the guy was being attacked from the direct right, the upper right and the top of the screen. if one of them had fired a shot and hit the suspect in custody, we'd be hearing about how careless he was.

    I think it's sad that a 14 or 15 year old is dead. I also think it is sad that they view the BP as sport to be attacked. I would much rather it had been a drug lord. But i don't see this guy setting up and taking aim at anyone. if anything, he is jarred by the suspect.

    I think they need to boycott America. We will either become convinced of our need to open the borders, or they will have to become self reliant and entertain themselves at home.
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    That was ridiculous. Police here as everywhere have become more like a military unit. They are not protecting and serving the people as they're supposed too, they are trying to see how many they can arrest, jail and fine almost like a mercenary business.

    Looks to me like the person being detained bumped the agent while he had his finger on the trigger while holding the gun fixated on the unfortunate individual.

    They have to meet their quota as defined by crime statistics/officer ratio. Racial profiling is by far the greatest effect of it.

    Re: Do US border patrols have immunity from prosecution?

    The real question is if the agent accidentally discharged his firearm with absolutely no intention to fire his weapon should he be charged with anything? If so perhaps by an international court?

    Perhaps Kevin means a court in Mexico, that being where the death occurred.

    The US has always had the option of leaving the UN any time it liked, you know. The sooner the better as far as I'm concerned.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    A lot of Americans feel sooner would be better.

    Go for it, big boy. Bluster's just bluster but actually leaving would be an event.

    Did "the subjects" surround the agent and continue to throw rocks at him, Kevin? And how many times did he "accidentally because he was nudged" fire his weapon?
