El Mac just shared this impressive drawing together with this heavy story. Please read:

On the night of October 10, 2012 around 11:30 p.m., José Antonio Elena Rodriguez, a 16-year-old resident of Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, was killed (shot 10 times mostly in the back) by US Border Patrol agents through the border fence, while walking along the street to visit his brother at work.
For the last year, his family and their supporters have faced a wall of silence trying to learn the truth about what happened that night. Border Patrol, the FBI, and the Department of Justice have all been unwilling to release information about their “investigation” that so far has yielded no answers—no names of the agents involved, no information on their active duty status (according to policy, they are most likely working in the field to this day), and no release of the video taken by a border security camera.
The agents that killed José Antonio fired on him from atop a 25-foot embankment, from behind the 20-foot-tall steel border wall and a dense area of foliage, and 30 feet across the street. Those who visit the site come back with no doubt that this was an unlawful and entirely pointless killing.
An eyewitness reports that José Antonio was simply walking down the street, and was not involved in rock-throwing against agents at the border wall. The autopsy report released by the Mexican government gives a chilling account—the boy was struck by 10 bullets, nine of them in the back after he was already on the ground.
The excessive use of force that resulted in José Antonio’s, and about 20 other recent border deaths is not the action of isolated “bad apples.” Rather, it is a consequence of the Border Patrol’s militarized approach to border enforcement.
