The biggest problem is the Border Patrol has proof of the boy's complicity in smuggling and failed to show it in the news. They need to show the number of times he was stopped prior to the shooting. As a foreign juvenile he was turned over to the Mexican government several times. His mother is a poor example of parenting. HE should have been in school at the time.
How the hell do you know that? Do you have a source inside the Border Patrol? Reyes never said anything like that and he ran the damn agency for years. Besides, mothers can't help it if their kids cut school once in a while - even the best students need to blow off steam once in a while. I'd rather my son do that than to shack up with some bimbo or stick a needle in his butt.

The slime is here,

Until "Fast and Furious," Americans knew "very little" about the flow of U.S. firearms to cartels, said Josiah Heyman, an anthropology professor at the University of Texas at El Paso and an expert on violence in Mexico and its relationship to U.S. policy.
In a more direct manner than the botched federal operation, the Columbus scandal confirmed that narco-corruption -- so endemic to the Mexican side of the border, where cartels are believed to have even murdered mayors and police officials -- has infected the U.S. side.

Thats a bunch of baloney. Mexicans don't even like money. They want Justice. The U.N. needs to get involved and turn over The W while they are at it.

Yes, you're right the UN needs to line the borders with their men to keep the DAMNED SMUGGLERS of(humans & drugs)& damned illegals from jumping the border SINCE MEXICO cares nothing about keeping their people from jumping it. We're all for the UN to get involved but Calderon WON'T HAVE IT, WHY? THE UN would begin probably by removing Calderon and all his corrupt governors, soldiers, federals, police, etc. AND CARTELS!!! Calderon can't have this some of his family is involved in the business also!!! So the way it seems MEXICO IS DOOMED AND WILL NEVER BE WHAT IT ONCE WAS, it is a failed country!

Listen swift one. Why is it they jump the fence? Why will you not accept the demand for illegal drugs and cheap worker bring these people to America? People with your ideas are part of the problem. You refuse to accept America is part of the problem. Why will you not wake up?

Reward trespassers accordingly.....

"In El Paso, murder's bad for business," he said. "In Juarez, it is business

The reason is twofold, Jordan said: Cartels fear American law enforcement agencies because they respond to violence more swiftly and forcibly than do their Mexican counterparts, and "since the U.S. is the primary consumer, the cartels will try and avoid disturbing the hand that feeds them."

In 2009 and 2010, the center reported, cartels operated in 1,286 U.S. cities, more than five times the number reported in 2008. The center named only 50 cities in 2006.

Target communities often have an existing Hispanic population and a nearby interstate for ferrying drugs and money to and fro, said author Charles Bowden, whose books on the Mexican drug war include "Murder City: Ciudad Juarez and the Global Economy's New Killing Fields."

"I'm not saying Mexicans come here to do crime, but Mexicans who move drugs choose to do it through areas where there are already Mexicans," he said.

(CNN)-- At least 30,000 children in Mexico are involved in some sort of organized crime, according to a nationwide alliance of civic and social organizations.
The Child Rights Network in Mexico says many of these children are taking part because of death threats or because of economic and social necessity. It is urging the government to start recognizing them as victims of child abuse.

"The drug cartels are not training them to be ringleaders," spokeswoman Veronica Morales said. "It is a new form of abuse in which they are being used to commit an offense, to violate the law and to deceive authorities."
In the past year, there have been numerous headlines of children being arrested in Mexico.

Perhaps the most high-profile case involved a 14-year-old boy known as "El Ponchis" ("The Cloak"). He was found guilty of torturing and beheading at least four people for the South Pacific drug cartel.

A month after the boy was sentenced to three years in a correctional facility, a 13-year-old girl was captured in the state of Jalisco and accused of being part of the Zetas drug cartel.

Authorities said the girl was receiving 8,000 pesos a month -- almost $800 -- for being a lookout. She would let gang members know who was entering and who was leaving Luis Moya, a municipality in north-central Mexico.

I am not sure what you point is. Mine is very clear. No demand not need for illegal drugs. No business owners wanting to exploit cheap labor without benefits, no people heading toward the USA. Did you know that Americans have more people in incarcerated than some small countries and lead the world in people in jail. You can suggest all you want that Hispanic (not all Hispanics come from Mexico) are to blame. Your attitude not much different than ima ima is part of the problem.

We never have children that kill others in America? Columbine for example never happened. When will you and people like you wake up?

They should be suing Calderon and Mexico's BP for not keeping THEIR DAMNED PEOPLE from approaching the border for the safety of their own.
The Border Patrol should be patrolling your mother's hind quarters. It is too large a piece of real estate to leave unguarded, not to mention it is a favorite hang out for illegals. This is what i have heard anyway.
