do you think this shooting is the effect from the escalation of attention the Fox news channel (and its loyal fanbase) have perpetuated these past years in their quest for high ratings (=profit) by ratcheting the sentiments of some extremists (no diff than when discussing abortion/affirmative action/christianity), thereby creating a consensus of the masses under the same umbrella one by one by fanning the flames of these extreme topics daily? It's my guess that this is not something that happened much in the past. And all I can say is this can only increase distrust and lack of respect which is exactly how the the flame fanning began. Toxic behavior begets toxic behavior, don't you agree?Answer Question

I'm surprised you did not blame it on Bush.

I don't think Fox has anything to do with it. Trigger happy cops / Border Patrol officer who used his gun because he was pissed the boy ran.....This is a trend, TASERS are being used as well as a replacement for actually CATCHING the person...

ummmmmm.....yeah..he was SO innocent and that EVIL border agent ** eyes**
The 15-year-old Mexican youth who was shot and killed by a Border Patrol agent had a history of involvement with human smuggling and was on a list of repeat juvenile offenders, U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman Mark Qualia told CNN Thursday.The victim, Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca, had been apprehended by U.S. officials on more than one occassion but was never criminally charged, Qualia said. The use of juveniles to smuggle people across the border is a common tactic for smugglers, he said.
