Border Patrol Agent Kills Mexican Teen–on Mexican side of the Border

This article from today’s Washington Post discusses the case of a Border Patrol agent who shot and killed a Mexican teen who was standing on the Mexican side of the border.  Allegedly the teen and his friends were taunting and throwing rocks at a group of agents, and one agent shot and killed the boy in response.

This is a terrible tragedy.  I understand that there must be an incredible amount of attention on the border right now.  Nevertheless, as a nation we cannot allow this type of behavior under any circumstances.
