I'm sorry, but if we want to fix the problem in the border we need to change things here first. And I mean with our government. Policies. NAFTA does absolutely nothing for Latin America. Nothing. Instead it's systematically making people slaves of corporations. An American company opens a factory in Mexico, while people here complain about outsourcing, do you think Mexicans are making the money you would be making?
So it's less of an issue for you that rocks were thrown FROM Mexico INTO the US aimed at the US agents?

Do you NOT think grapefruit sized rocks thrown at you from 60 feet can kill you,
This "kid" was a repeat offending coyote, and probably involved in the cartels.
If he would have maimed or killed the BP agent, he would have been a hero there, and protected by the corrupt Mexican government, guaranteed.
I don't see too much outcry coming from Mexicans when their cartels slaughter mass numbers of people, beheading and stringing up their bodies, to send their messages almost daily. But one BP agent gets caught in a tough situation and takes action to defend himself from mankind's first deadly weapon, and it makes the front page of every paper down there, with inflammatory headlines like "This is what Americans do".
I've heard rumors they are amassing down there handing out AK's and planning some 'revenge' on Americans, not sure if it's true or not. But if it is, things are gonna get interesting. I wonder who's side you will take...
I get the feeling reading your posts, that you're a racist who is standing behind your skin color before your country. Odd coming from a marine.
Then why are you seemingly still trying to defend this "kid" (who has likely taken lives himself)?
Legal hispanics take the side of illegals, in general, for no reason other than racial unity. That is racism in my book, if that's not the case with you, then I admit my haste to judgement. Only you know the truth.
What do you have to say about the corrupt Mexican cops wading across to the U.S. side, picking up the shell casing, and bringing it back the Mexican side hoping to frame the BP agent for crossing to the Mexican side.
There is video of it, as well as the video of the actual incident that clearly shows him on the U.S. side trying to detain a man while having rocks rain down. Why were they trying to lie about where he was?
Seems they are itching for a larger conflict...

Sure they can. But your doing exactly what others are doing, assuming. Do you have proof of the grapefruit size rocks in this incident?
The smuggler part is an afterthought. At the moment of the incident, I don't believe the officer had time to identify. My friend confirmed this side of the kid. It shows he isn't what his parents thought.
What you are seeing from Mexico is an act they have to put on to show their people that they are standing up to the US.
You should know how the media works.
Spreading rumors that only lead to fear isn't going to help this situation. As far as who side I will take, you need not worry about. I know who I am and what I stand for.
Your feeling is wrong. I detest being called a racist.
Look at this thread and others like it and you will find many people slamming all Mexicans. In America, people don't call brown skin people Americans, they recognize them as Mexicans.
I don't know if he has taken lives, neither do you.
The thing is that every time this illegal stuff comes up, Americans who are Hispanic catch hell as well from the authorities.
I am not against border security or keeping illegals out, but many aspects of our government has cost us more than the illegals have. Yet, my fellow Americans seem content to let it keep happening.
Mexico doesn't want conflict.

Well, I dunno. It seems pretty crazy that their police forces pulled weapons on our FBI agents trying to investigate the shooting scene. Don't kow if you heard about that, but there was a standoff that is almost similar to the demilitarized zone in Korea.
