Cochise County sheriff's deputies recovered the body of a 22-year-old Guatemalan man east of Sierra Vista who died after walking for six days without food and water in an attempt to enter the United States illegally.
Guatemalan man dies after walking 6 days in desert | www.azstarnet.com ® (http://www.azstarnet.com/metro/303087 - broken link)

What is wrong with some of these people?

Well, I suppose that any knowledge of economics or US economic news wouldn't benefit some people at all or, perhaps he was hoping to take advantage of tax payer-funded benefits.

this is disgusting!

poor soul. may he rest in peace.

i wish more people knew how dangerous crossing the desert is.

i hope this serves as a deterrent.

what is wrong with YOU antireq?
looking to take advantage of tax payer funded benefits?! ya, sacrificing so much, risking life and limb just to line up for social services... right

is that what you really think?

my guess is that they were coming to work. they didnt make it. let it be a lesson for others trying to do the same.

rest in peace juan doe.

its a tragedy. loss of human life is.

He's looking for work despite the US being in a recession and rising unemployment since late 2007?

I'm certain that in Guatemala and Mexico, which I'm certain he passed through, he would least heard something about the recession.

im sure in passing through mex he saw that conditions there are as poor as they are in his country. they arent that bad in this country. its the greener pastures. even in times of economic hardship. at least thats what he thought.

he wasnt factoring WEATHER conditions tho.

Perhaps he was driven by a desperation that neither you nor I, nor most of our readers will ever have to experience..I don't know, never met the man. But I have experienced truly frightening desert heat, and my heart goes out to the guy, because it's a particularly gruesome way to die.

May his soul find peace...

For once, no sarcasm. It's a tragic way to die, all politics aside. What a shame, and what suffering.....

Greener pastures in a place with numerous economic problems and rising unemployment since late 2007?

So, despite being from Guatemala, which also experiences high temperatures frequently, he wasn't able to factor in weather conditions when crossing the border illegally?

If that illegal alien is stupid enough to not take any of that into consideration then I suppose he deserves to be criticized for his own death even though I wouldn't praise such a thing.
