Border Patrol Rock Th_Hass.jpg

A border fence with security camera towers are seen in Nogales, Mexico, near the site where a U.S. Border Patrol agent being pelted with rocks opened fire toward Mexico, killing a 16-year-old boy. The shooting has prompted renewed outcry over the Border Patrol's use-of-force policies and angered human rights activists and Mexican officials who believe the incident has become part of a disturbing trend along the border — gunning down rock-throwers rather than using non-lethal weapons.
