US border patrol kills Mexican boy

This video from the USA is called Justice For Sergio Adrián Hernandez Guereca and all Border Patrol victims; 6-6-2015.

Another video from CNN in the USA used to say about itself:

9 June 2010 — Amnesty International has joined the ranks of those criticizing the U.S. Border Patrol, calling for a “full, impartial and transparent investigation” into a shooting this week that left a 15-year-old Mexican boy dead.

“This shooting across the border appears to have been a grossly disproportionate response and flies in the face of international standards which compel police to use firearms only as a last resort, in response to an immediate, deadly threat that cannot be contained through lesser means,” said Susan Lee, Americas director at Amnesty International, in a statement Wednesday on the organization’s website<.

The Mexican government also has requested a quick and public investigation into the fatal shooting at the border between El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, on Monday night.

In the second killing of a Mexican citizen by the US Border Patrol in less than two weeks, an agent shot and killed a 15-year-old youth Monday evening at the El Paso, Texas-Ciudad Juarez crossing: here.

  1. Liberation flags returned home

    Mexico: Spain has returned two 19th century flags carried by Mexican national liberation heroes.

    Mexican President Felipe Calderon presented the flags in a military ceremony on Monday, observing that the banners were ordered made by independence hero Ignacio Allende and were taken to Spain after he was captured by Spanish troops in 1811.

    One of the flags has the Virgin of Guadalupe, Mexico’s patron saint and the symbol used by Miguel Hidalgo, a priest who launched the 1810 revolt against Spanish rule. The other shows Saint Gabriel.
