Despite a government-commissioned review recommending an end to the practice of shooting rock-throwers, Border Patrol agents may continue anyway, the Associated Press reports .
CBP responded that the recommendation was “very restrictive.”
The review came from the Police Executive Research Forum, a nonprofit that advises law enforcement agencies, the AP wrote.
Border Patrol agents are currently told they can use deadly force if they have a reasonable belief that their lives are in danger.
Concerns were raised after eight people since 2010 were killed in rock-throwing incidents with Border Patrol agents.
