(CONTINUED) but I don't think any of those items are worth taking a life for. As an African-American I can identify with the racism and discrimination but I don't believe there is ever a good reason to hate someone or take someone's life.

I am so ashamed of America! Who cares what nationality the kid was? Was taking a life really justification for throwing a rock? Or does the fact that he was an illegal Mexican make it easier to accept? Look, this land doesn't belong to anyone! We have thousands of foreigners coming and going daily...why is it such a problem for people from Mexico to enter? Look, as a Soldier, I have lived in El Paso for the past 2 years. I have had two dogs, a bbq grill, a bike, and lawn furniture stolen from me

This is the very reason out system does not operate as planned. No one backs up these guys that are out there protecting us from the violence that is less than a mile from here. These agents should be rewarded for their actions and doing a wonderful job. They should not have to worry that some Mexican nationals will come and sue him for protecting himself and his country. I agree those people should not be allowed in this country they should be thrown in jail if they are not legal citizen.

So does this mean any american teen can go to the border and throw golf ball sized rocks at mexican police or their federal police and we can sue them if they returned fire at the american teen?

Yah right! Mexico is not a friend to the U.S. and these talks are pointless.Capitol hill has no idea what is going on in reality on how they treat us like a used cleanex.

You would be suprised what a blood sucking leech attorney can make these poor parents say. sorry the kid got blown away, but if you play with fire you are going to get burned big time.

kid was a known smuggler, if you throw rocks at agents you can die. stop saying he was a perfect kid he was a POS.

Ok, how many different versions of the story have I heard. Yes, every mother likes to feel that their kid was an angel and was no capable of doing such things, but come on, be realistic people. I'm sorry to say but I feel these people are just trying to get money from the government. Yes, I'm sorry you lost your child, I can't even imagine how that feels, but this is not a way to get revenge or justice. How many millions are they asking for? It just seems ridiculous to me!

What was that kid doing there to begin with??? Should he be in school instead of helping smuggling people to the U.S. We need more border security! El Paso is turning into Juarez with all these people coming to El Paso opening businesses. They don't help the job market here, they only hire there own kind. If you go to these places, they barely speak English. I'm tired of seeing chihuahua plates all over the city. They dont respect our laws. It wont be long till it spills over!!

HIS FAMILY HAS NO RIGHT TO FILE ANYTHING AGAINST THE BORDER PATROL BECAUSE THEY WERE DOING THEIR JOB. BORDER PATROL AGENTS WERE BEING TAUNTED BY THE TEEN WHO, IN RETURN, RETALIATED. WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS WHERE WERE HIS PARENTS WHEN ALL OF THIS WAS GOING ON? HE HAD NO BUSINESS BEING THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE AND THIS COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED. NO MATTER WHERE U LIVE, THE ACTS OF YOUR CHILDREN ARE A REFLECTION OF THEIR PARENTS, IT STARTS AT HOME.

Why do these morons need to come here? It's a slap in the face to our border patrol. Throw them in jail once they cross over.

it is pretty obvious that you are not a very sensitive person. I suppose if this was your kid ...you would not like to be heard. Every human hsa rights....you just do not throw people in jail ....please educate yourself a bit more and maybe at that point your ability to think and comment might improve. never the less....god bless you my friend.
