Senator Questioning Policy On Deadly Force

Border Patrol agents should be allowed to shoot at fleeing drug traffickers, a Republican senator suggested Tuesday.


The patrol's deadly force rules were questioned at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing concerning the conviction of two agents who shot a fleeing, unarmed drug trafficker and covered it up.
Why is it wrong to shoot the [trafficker] after he's been told to stop?" asked Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma.

This policy is in question of the border patrol. I am not saying shooting that one person then covering it up is the right thing to do. But I do think this policy should be questioned. Many countries have the authority to shoot fleeing suspects. I do think there would be a decrease in people entering illegally if this were to happen.
