Your anger isnt productive. Its very bad that the hid died while on your country from the other side. But this hate is not gonna take us anywhere and it'll only cloud our ability to judge.
To get on topic though.. This is indeed a tragic incident. I am very sorry for the kid's family and I understand your anger. However, to call this an act of war is honestly not a logical conclusion. Are you prepared to join in on an invasion on US soil and kill innocent men, women, and children to retaliate for one man's deed? He made a choice as an individual and not a representative of US citizens as a whole. He had a moment, and made a decision. TBH it would be suicide anyways, US citizens might have been alseep, but an invasion would awaken the giant quickly.
Both of our nation's people need to put our governments under control. This is the problem. The illegals here our a huge problem and our federal government has not done enough. I live in Oklahoma and believe me I have a lot of Mexican friends. Many whom I would call family, they even think this. These issues are causing great tension with us all and making us want to war when in truth it is our government's fault, and thus our's for allowing them to do as they please.
Anyways, we are all in this together against them. We are friends, and neighbors. Always welcome here legally, or for a visit to have some cold ones! Just not your president anymore!
Not war... bro

and Mexicans all day. But IMO, your just showing your immaturity.
Not all Mexicans are like many of you are describing. In many ways they are no different than you and I.
Just honest average people who want the best out of life.
None of this hatred and name calling helps further this thread.
Maybe the Mexican was wrong, maybe the BP agent was wrong, maybe both were wrong. In the end it is still a tragedy for all involved.
I'm sure the agent doesn't feel proud about shooting the kid.
Maybe instead of all of this hatred going back and forth, we should focus on the story and provide material relevant to the topic. Material that could probaly lead us closer to the truth about what really hapened.
I really thought that is what ATS is all about. However, many of these posts have got me thinking otherwise.

OP, if that's an act of war what about Mexican military choppers flying across the borders into Texas??????????
Which Drug Lord do you work for, please tell us.
Go ask the Iraqis if you want a real war with us.....it's all we do, we're pretty good at it
Americans have a right to be mad right now. We've been silent for years as this has been happening and the federal government has done nothing to stop the flow of illegals. Those mexican citizens know full well that crossing the border is illegal but they do it anyway.
Don't you DARE compare Mexicans to Palestinians and invoke "Nazi".
People from your country murder American civilians all the time, on OUR soil. Half of our cities gangs are people from YOUR country. YOUR people have come across the border and nickle and dimed us to death of BILLIONS. YOUR people have shut down Hospitals, Schools, left many social services penniless. YOUR military has crossed our borders hundreds of times, YOUR Federal agents and cops have conspired to kidnap civilian WOMEN and CHILDREN to sell in the sex slave trade. YOUR nation is so corrupt that STATE SANCTIONED drug trades spill into our towns and get people killed and wreck neighborhoods.
ONE boy gets shot by some idiot Border Patrol and you claim this is an 'act of war'?
Get lost dude...
Uuuuh, yes it does need to.The video isn't clear as to why he drew his gun. The video is not of the best quality either. I can't even tell who he was shooting at or why. This is why it needs to go to court, where EVERYTHING can be closely examined. This video is vague at best. Oh, by the way. Illegals have already been captured, and documented in court houses across the country, and sent back to Mexico. Been going on for a long time. So yes, I can say the U.S. is full of illegals. Let's not be dumb and throw verbal stones, ok?

First of all, nothing has been proven. It hasn't even been to court yet. And until then, your kind come over here ILLEGALLY by the fkg. THOUSANDS every fkg. day and kill Americans. You have alot of nerve saying the things you did, is that because you are stupid? It's a shame a boy that age of any race gets killed and he probably didn't deserve it but I wouldn't be surprised if it's true that he was throwing rocks at those U.S. Agents... asking for trouble. Did the report say if he was shot in the back? No, don't think it did. Did it give much detail? No. Sit down and cool ur jets Chico.
watch the video, does it really need to go to Court before I can claim that it was breach of international law and murder?
Because if it does then what your saying is you can't claim the USA is full of illegals until they have all been captured, sent to Court, tried and sentenced with the crime of entering the US illegaly.
And i'm the dumb one.
