Normally a monetary verdict for wrongful or negligent death is based on the life time earnings of the deceased.
I wonder how much he would have made over his life time as a smuggler. I also wonder if the jury will have to factor in that he most likely would spend part of his criminal career in jail.

What was a 15 yr-old doing hanging around the border? Running drugs or flesh or guns? Bet the parents don't know or care.

Is anyone shocked about this? I'm not. Mommy wants to recover what sonny boy hasn't been supplying to the family's income.

He was known as a coyote by the border patrol. His primary job was to distract the BP by pretending to make runs at the border then throwing rocks at the BP and drawing them away from those who were actually sneaking across. I am sure his parents knew exactly what he was doing. Part of La familia business.

Kid was trying to kill border patrol agent. He was a habitual drug smuggler. Parent's tried to get money then and are still trying.

We are the country that keeps on paying!!! What do they give us; many litters to deliver, provide healthcare, feed, educate, send to college, & provide a job. Wow that sounds like being a parent! Obviously they don't teach their kids to respect authority or we wouldn't be having this discussion.
