We are learning more tonight about the 14-year-old boy shot by a Border Patrol agent last monday. Tonight we have confirmed with officials in Washington D.C. that Sergio Adrian Hernandez had been arrested in the past for human smuggling.

Comments News Comments

1st of all, thank you to the BP Agent for keeping us safe from a worthless human being who ignored our laws but loved our money. 2nd, my father is a Firearms Instructor for the BP and knows the rules of engagement for situations like this. He would have done the same thing if his life was threatned. This "little boy just playing with friends" had a known criminal history with the BP. Im just sorry he didnt get what he really deserved...a bullet in his heart to match the one in his head!

Every thing south of the U.S. border is bad. Corrupt Goverment, Illegal Alians, Drugs and Crime. It is way overdo to mine and Military our southern Border. Illegals should shoud be deported on mass. And legal Immigants should be welcome, as our laws state. As a Tax Payer I don't belive in supporting Illegals with Welfare, Education, Food Stamps, Medical and the Prison system. Look at the facts and prove me wrong. They are a Blight on our country.

Thank you disabled vet for your support. Youre a credit to our country and i hope to be as helpful to our great nation as you have. God bless you and your family. (which war/wars are you a veteran of?)

It amazes me of how Ingorant the Mexican people are. Throw a rock at the Mexican Military, Police or a Drug Cartel member, - You are going to die!

Do the Mexican Police prevent their people from crossing the border! No

As I say in one of my comments to much coverage for a juvenile criminal, you just need to see his family and friends all dressed up like gang members and speaking the worst spanish could exist. Things are so simple, if someone got into your home you defend it these people broke the law and now they are victims, just listen the audio the people who saw the event justified the action of the Border Patrol Agent so don't give more coverage to something has no more to tell.

TO EVERYONE COMMENTING ON THE DEATH OF CHILD. YOU ALL NEED TO GO BACK TO ENGLISH CLASS AND LEARN TO WRITE. MORE THAN 1/2 OF EVERYONE COMMENTING IS SEMI-ILLITERATE. 1/2 OF YOUR COMMENTS HAVE POOR GRAMMAR AND MAKE NO SENSE.

Sorry go green, my comment was directed at Lisa M. my apology!

This shooting has nothing to do with Race, im am to mexican american! why do all the civil rights activists have to make this shooting a racial thing! Real american,if you were so amercian you would realize that this officer was in defense of his life, were you there personally to witness the incident?? Well then dont cast stones!!

NOTWITHSTANDING THAT THE YOUNG MAN HAS BEEN ARRESTED OR NOT SUPPOSED TO PRIOR PAYMENT IS YOUR PUNISHMENT, or released without any punishment? ALSO CHECK THAT AS YOUNG MURDERER TO WHOM THE AGENT OF THE BORDER PATROL IS WHO CAST THE STONES? Probably not even try, BUT IF YOU TOUCH THE shot.

Thanks Border Patrol for keeping us safe in our home country. What about that, when have you heard anyone say that. All you hear are negative things about the Border Patrol but how many drugs and criminals have they cought and keep them of your streets. They dont get weekends off or holidays to spend with there family to keep you safe. Think about that!

poor bastard, then they should go to college instead of going the easy way to get money from the government. He was just a 14yr old kid, what ever he did dead is not the solution, I will like to see you if your kid or grandchild got shoot. The only one can take life away is GOD and no one else. GOD bless the family of the kid and help them recover from the tragedy. And i really hope the BP agent get punish, and if not hope he gets divine punishment "hell".

Go green, you have no idea what it is to be put in a deadly force encounter!! And yes rocks are considered a deadly weapon! Not to mention a whole group of people throwing rocks, its called a stoning! And by all means if an officer feels his life is threatened in any way, he has the RIGHT to use deadly force! alot of people dont understand the dangers that go along with being in law enforcement, thats the problem. So until you walk a day in those shoes, dont pass judgement!!

So now is shot your gun and ask questions later? Good for the country of the "brave and free", without a jury, judge and trial this kid got Death Penalty. Let's look at the big picture a person, the agent was not in a death risk at the moment that he perfectly aimed and shot that kid in the head. Just for all those who may think I'm Mexican, I'm American, ok? Nothing justifies this type of action, and whoever is doing so, they deserve being called red-necks, because that's what you're.

Just look at the video. The Agent defended is self. The Kid had a record. Justice is servered

A rock, stick, scissors, knife, bat, etc., are considered weapons when used with intent to cause harm. A rock thrown at a short distance can cause severe injuries, a rock thrown with force is like a bullet that can crack skulls and even cause death. When these four individuals threw rocks with intent to cause harm, they left the BP with no other alternative but to defend himself.

REAL AMERICAN CITIZEN.
GRACIAS MI AMIGO, POR TU ACERTADO PUNTO DE VISTA.

JUAREZVIOLENTO.

Real American Citizen. Mal dicho. No tienes la menor idea que puede causar un golpe de una piedra. Deja que te tire un piedra Juarezviolento y que te de an la cabeza y luego quando salgas del coma, nos platicas come te sientes.

Okay so stand there while i find a rock to beam at your head and then you can tell me what your opinion is after words if its not a dangerous and deadly object at high speeds. As an american how many times do you see baseball players going blind or being nocked un-concious or have serious brain trauma when they get hit by a thrown baseball to the head. Difference in this example is one is wearing protective head gear and the BP agent is not so you do the math of what could happen.

Miranda, It has nothing to do with RACISM. the dam kid was assaulting a federal agent. The agent was in all his right to defend himself. if the family said that he was such a good kid have them explain why he was there and the record that he has. and for the record I AM MEXICAN 100% and i do back up what the agent did. -Vic

if the United States is such a horrible place....why would they risk everything to come here! and especially to assualting our officers.... im just saying instead of a chain linked fence they should build a 50 foot tall 10 feet think concreate wall and close the damn border!

Hey Heart, what they should do is electrify the darn fence and let them clim over it or cut it, and see what happens. Also the fence should be electrify with BIG Voltage, not just a little zap, something that does not kill them but make them think twice before they do it again. Also they could have a trench full of water at the base of the wall. I am cruel or not.

plain and simple dont throw rocks at officials! the agent was only protecting himself and his partners! but funny how when an american is murdered in mexico, investigation isn't even in agenda!

Also what about the americans that have been murdered in mexico,I dont see their goverment doing full invesigations on that right?Like the fort bliss GI that got shot over there and had to rush to the border so he wouldnt get killed is there an investigation on that!!

Yes this is a tragedy and someone ended up dead. The dead person could have also been the border patrol agent working that shift at that very moment this all happened. I think that Mexico is trying to shift the focus on what is really happening in Juarez. How come they are not "outraged" about what is happening in their own city. How many innocent children, and small children at that, have been killed by these so called "narcos"? Or how about all those dead women that they did nothing about???

But according to all the people that are holding vigils, he was a good kid. You know, lots of good kids just hang out by the river and throw rocks at federal agent. I dont see them throwing rocks at any officers in Mexico. I know why, because in Mexico if you get shot by a cop its normal, you are just one more. But lets threaten federal agents in the United States so that we can have something else to complaint about. So much for such a good kid.

The kids was caught breaking the law, was actively and purposely attempting to harm a Border Patrol agent, and had a record. Many comments refer to that record, but was the Border Patrol agent aware of that record when he fired his weapon? I'm not sure his record was pertinent at the time. One thing we CAN teach our kids - once you break the law, once you initiate cruelty, violence, etc... PLEASE do not rely on your VICTIM to always maintain total self-control, even if he is a professional.

The BP officer was in full compliance. He was defending himself from a now confirmed smuggler. The Mexicn authorities can spin all they want on this kid, but he was in the wrong by trying to harm a another human being. The Mexican police was at the scene very quickly. Had they been doing their job, they would have prevened the smugglers from trying to cross the border and save a life.

Hey Orion or what ever your name is, common sense does state that when you are getting rocked and have nowhere to go, you use the tools at your side. In this case the agent had a gun and he used it. Let me ask you a question high speed, would you try to assault a lion with a rock?, hopefully not. So why in the world would you throw a rock at someone with a gun???? Once this dead smuggler's history comes to light everyone will see the big picture and realize it was a good shoot.

I say we pick a day, next week, lets say FRIDAY and WEAR GREEN,,,,

WEAR GREEN TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR OUR BORDER AGENTS!!

thats a great idea! WEAR GREEN on fridays till the investigation ends in support of the border patrol agent!

Oh please the Mexican side, not showing respect to the Border Patrol, that's ridiculous. I don't give a damn if they threw a 100 rocks @ them. The Border Patrolman, acted maliciously and had no mercy for that defenseless kid. He acted the way their acting in Arizona right now. It's plain racism and hatred for the people of Mexico. I'm glad someone was able to record what really happened to that kid, because the truth is our government would cover it up. Open your eyes & ears people. L.Miranda

He was not a defensely kid, he is a juvenile who had a deadly weapon on his possession and used it to cause severe harm and even death. And he is no innocent kid, he was trying to cross the other four into the U.S. The video does show the individuals throwing rocks at the BP while he is on his knees holding down one other individual that was apprehended. The juvenile gave the PB no other choice but to defend himself. And how is this racist, do you know the meaning of it?

LIZA M.

ES GRATIFICANTE VER QUE DE LOS QUE AQUI HAN COMENTADO TU ERES LA UNICA PERSONA QUE VE LAS COSAS TAL Y COMO SON, SIN MOSTRAR FAVORITISMO POR LA POLICIA AMERICANA, QUE REALMENTE SE EXEDIO EN LA ACTRUACION HACIA ESOS NIÑOS MEXICANOS, UN FUERTE ABRAZO CON CARIÑO, TU AMIGO.

JUAREZVIOLENTO.

How is it racist if the agent is hispanic? ANd the criminal/kid was not defensless he was assualting a FEDERAL AGENT.

Ofcourse you don't give a damn if they threw 100 rocks at them. As long as they were not throwing them at you. How do you define mercy? Let the kid hit the BP first than what? Throw the rock back at him? There is no hatred for the people of Mexico just hatred from Mexico. Look at you. Arizona is is protecting its citizens. Legal citizens, including Hispanics are just fine in Arizona. The law you despise is not even in effect. And who do you mean when you say your governement? Mexico?

The kid assulted an Agent, he got popped. Simple as that. He should have popped all of them, so they can realize not to bring rocks to a gun fight. The kid was up to no good obviously. Good job agent!!!

Or thrown by an adult the consequences can still be quite deadly.
I applaud our Border Patrol... He protected life, his and his detainees.

To all Border Agents....You are our line of defense againt smugglers, drugs, human traffickers.... and countless of other unsavory characters. You are in the heat, the cold, the wind.... May God Bless you, and keep you safe!

COMMENT YOUR FULL OF RACISM AND LACK OF LOGIC AND GOOD FEELINGS, JUST SHOW THE HATE THAT HAVE SIMILAR TO YOUR, YOU NEVER REALLY WANT ONE WITH SIMILARITIES TO THIS TRAGEDY IS THIS IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU AND YOU AND YOUR famlies who feels he NOW FEEL THE PAIN OF THIS YOUNG loved ones who died, by an agent of the Border Patrol, with a tinge of racism and lack of experience in situations like happened.

Interesting perspective...
I was raised by parents that told me, "don't throw rocks"... Rocks, can blind, maim, and kill. And remember we're not talking fish tank gravel, although that type thrown by the fistful would serve as quite a distraction, and have some sting!!!
The weapon of choice in this case was a rock, obviously there doesnt take much training to be a rock thrower, and in the El Paso, the desert the "ammunition " is plentiful, but wheather thrown by a child,

Stop! Take a look at this shooting and think. There is enough blame to go around. First, the mexican side not showing respect to the border patrol and throwing rocks, but does that justify shooting the the kid with a bullet? When I was in the army in Santo Domingo, we had to get permission to fire our M14 at people shooting at us. The Border Patrol has to show common sense. If they don't, fire them. As for Mexican Govt., there is no governing body to take care of the problem. Orion

Orion, its a good thing no one ever attacked you in Santo Domingo. By the time you got permission to shoot, you would be dead and not living in the best country in the world.

Not showing respect to the Border Patrol?

More like trying to kill the Border Patrol.

Back off about 30 yards and let five or 10 young men start throwing baseball sized rocks at your head and tell you're worried about respect.

By Federal law, deadly force can be met with deadly force.

And exposing his criminal history helps counter the picture being painted by his family that he was just an innocent child playing by the river bank.

SE QUE DEFIENDES AL MIGRA PORQUE ES DE TU PAIS, PERO INVIERTE LA SITUACION, Y MIRALO DE LA FORMA QUE FUERA TU HIJO AMERICANO PASANDO EL RIO, Y QUE LA POLICIA DE MEXICO LO ASESINARA POR AVENTARLES PIEDRAS, ENTONCES TAMBIEN DIRIAS LO MISMO?

SE MIGRA who defend because it is your country, but reverses the situation, And look the way YOU OUT AMERICAN SON PASSING THE RIVER, AND MEXICO POLICE murdered him for throwing stones, then he would say the same?

This isn’t Santo Domingo!!! This is why maybe the United States is a much better place than your country. USA love it or leave it.
