A Human, Not A Subject, Killed!

A group of boys were playing on the banks of the Rio Grande River, just a few miles from El Paso when a Border Patrol agents came upon the scene. What next happened depends on who is telling the story. According to the official border patrol agency, the following occurred when an agent captured one of the boys. The agent had “subject detained on the ground, gave verbal commands to the remaining subjects to stop and retreat. However, the subjects surrounded the agent and continued to throw rocks at him. The agent then fired his service weapon several times, striking one subject who later died.” However, there is a video of the scene which offers a slightly different version of events. A video shows three people running from the Border Patrol agents. One is caught and the agent is holding him down with one hand while the other is raised and has a revolver. A voice said, “he hit him, the idiot him him.” Another voice says, “It’s because they are throwing stones.”

Those are the versions. I am an inhabitant of planet Earth. On planet Earth there are creatures known as humans, but apparently on planet Border Patrol there are creatures known as “Subjects.” On my planet we do not kill humans, but on planet Border Patrol, they kill Subjects. We leave it to those reading whether or not a Subject should have been killed.
