San Diego — A federal lawsuit over the fatal shooting of a Mexican immigrant accused of throwing rocks at a Border Patrol agent is going after not only the agent who pulled the trigger, but some of the agency’s highest-ranking officials at the time, alleging they failed to address excessive force concerns over such “rocking” incidents along the border.
The use-of-force issue has generated a firestorm of public opinion in recent years. Civil rights advocates, Mexico’s government and a law enforcement research group have urged the Border Patrol to refrain from lethal force when faced with rock throwers, while agents in the field contend they need to protect themselves in what is often a dangerous job.
