In Mexico, you are considered an adult at 14, many of them are wed and pregnant at these teen years. So calling him a boy is a gross miss statment. the border agent was defending himself.
Doing his job. more outrage from caldron directed at us for protecting the border is just bs.

Where were the loving and concerned parents of this "innocent child" when he announced he was going to the border to THROW ROCKS AT THE U.S. BORDER PATROL AGENTS?

I don't know about you guys but I wouldn't be alive today if I had told my parents I was going out to throw rocks at the local law enforcement officers.

Corrupto Calderon needs to SHUT UP with his criticism of the Immigration Laws of Arizona and the United States and openly address and demand respect for the sovereignty of this country from his citizens.

Remember, a bullet or a thrown rock from a 15 year old "innocent child" hurts just as much as that from a 30 year old.

Incorrect. The age of majority & drinking age is 18 in Mexico.

Marriageable age:
Mexico: 18, 16 with parental or legal consent, 14 for pregnant females with legal consent.
Georgia: 18, 15 with parental consent, 16 without parental consent if pregnant.
Pennsylvania: 18, 16 with parental consent, 14 in case of pregnancy and with the approval of a Judge of the Orphans Court.

Let's see - if you or I illegally crossed into Mexico and threw rocks at their police officers, what do you think would happen?

It remains to be seen if the victim 1) crossed into the US and 2) threw rocks. Some witnesses from the bridge say he was not the rock thrower and was not on the US side.

Sure, Gary . . . he was just "innocently" playing Hop Scotch down at the border.

Have you noticed many of the Border Patrol Vehicles lately? They closely resemble vehicles from a Demolition Derby with all of the rock dents, broken windows and bullet holes thanks to the arrogance and disrespect from our lovely peaceful neighbors.
