I wonder if Napolitano's called in her calvary yet to find the agent didn't have just cause? She's disgusting!

No doubt they will throw the blame on the Border Agent ~ they always do. If he complains, he will be slapped with the 'race card' the most common tool used by this administration when their position is indefensible. The Agent should get a medal and a bonus for protecting the US from Invasion - and used to train other agents to do likewise.

You would think that after the last incident that they would know it is not a good thing to throw rocks. But crimminals take a lot of chances and many are killed for the money. They know the risks. They at least are not getting taken, tortured and decapitated by the Border Patrol like the rival gangs will do.

I live in Mexico and you have to look over your shoulder and your surroundings at all times. when I come home and I see a car parked within a couple of houses from mine on the street. I drive past and return later before opening the garage door. They wait for you to open it and then they ambush you inside at gunpoint. Very common here.

The funny thing is the people will support these drug dealers and crimminals that are throwing the rocks and selling the drugs. Definetely a different way of life here and a different mind set.
