There's no need to defend these guys. If they were throwing rocks, they're jerks. No question.

But just an interesting sidenote. One of my buddies who is a Border Patrol agent (Read: professional sleeper) told me about a bunch of slang he learned at the academy, one of them being, a "Tonk", for the sound the flashlight makes when you hit an illegal over the head.
