NBPC Defends Border Patrol Agents’ Use of Lethal Force Against Rock-Throwers

Facing mounting criticism over its use of force, Border Patrol agents are defending opening fire on suspects who throw rocks at law enforcement, Government Executive reports.

Coming to the support of agents is the National Border Patrol Council, which represents about 17,000 agents and support staff.

Border Patrol has come under fire for using lethal force on rock-throwers.

“Rocks can maim and kill just as easily as a knife or a firearm,” NBPC said in a statement. “Every day on the border between the U.S. and Mexico, Border Patrol agents are assaulted with rocks, bricks, and other projectiles. These weapons are readily available and have the potential to do great harm.”
