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.
