El Diario de Juarez (Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua) 6-9-10

 Images show death of migrant

 Tijuana – Anastasio Hernandez Rojas cried for mercy and help as his life was extinguished by more than 20 United States Border Guards as they beat him and discharged electrical TASER charges into him.

 The vivid images that can be seen on 5 video recordings last an agonizing two and a half minutes was recorded by Humberto Navarrete Mendoza who agreed to give his eyewitness testimony and recordings taken with his cell phone. Navarrete became acquainted with the dead man about a week before he was killed.

 Dozens of people crossing through the Port of San Ysidro, California, saw the torture and cried to stop the beating.  A Mexican Immigration officer ordered the people to disperse from the Mexican side of the port without expressing a desire to interview witnesses.

 With desperation and visible fear, many people remained muted at the scene on the U.S. side but demanded justice on the Mexican side as recorded by Navarrete, a resident of San Diego.

 “Help me!  Help me! Please help me,” cried Anastasio moments before he died.  This can be seen on the video that lasted 1:24 minutes.

 The voice of a woman that screamed “Let him go now!” can be heard on the recording taken by Humberto, but the plea remained unanswered as Anastasio suffered more blows and at least 5 more electrical discharges before he fell punished into immobility.

 Navarrete questioned the excessive use of force and assured that Anastasio did not resist.

 In that same video an agent can be seen saying he didn’t know what was happening but at the same moment said “Obviously, he is not cooperating.”

 Anastasio’s cries of pain brought confusion and desperation onto the faces of witnesses and drowned out the noise of grinding metal that surrounds the port between the Port of San Ysidro and the Mexican Port of Entry.

 Although it was in the dark of night, the scene was clearly recorded by Humberto and he is sure that more than 20 U.S. Agents participated in the beating.

 It was at 8:00 PM on Wednesday the 28th of May as Humberto and a friend were headed into Tijuana when they heard the painful screams. Although they were more than 50 meters away, they were alerted that something was happening.

 “Anastasio was defenseless,” said Humberto so they yelled for the beating to stop.  “It was at that moment that they hit him with the TASER,’ said Humberto.

 Although Humberto witnessed a brutal beating, nobody imagined that it would result in the death of the victim.

 Hernandez Rojas got his wings on the night of Wednesday past at a funeral in San Diego.  He will be buried in that same county according to his family.


 It was shot at close range

 Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua – The autopsy, performed on the young 15 year old-Sergio Adrian Hernandez, showed that the cause of death was a head wound caused by a firearm at a relatively short distance.

 The crime occurred Monday on the Mexican side under the international railroad bridge between El Paso and Cd. Juarez.

 Yesterday the Ministerio Publico determined that the painful death was caused by an Agent of the U.S. Border Patrol in an act of aggression.

 Legally the crime occurred in a federal zone between the United States and Mexico and it was determined to be caused by a foreign Agent.

 The body was found on the bank of the Rio Bravo (Rio Grande) on the Mexican side in a belly-up position and had signs of violent injury by projectiles from a firearm.

 At the crime scene was found a case from a .40 caliber firearm which has been sent to a criminal laboratory for analysis.

 In this case the scientific and technical evidence is consistent that the painful death was caused by an Agent of the U.S. Border Patrol.

 Six presumed henchmen found beheaded in Mexican prison

 Culiacan – Six men who had been arrested by the military in the town of Guasave were found beheaded in prison (Cecjude).

 The crime was reported at about 2:27 yesterday morning. Security cameras revealed that the men had been attacked by 15 other men armed with pointed objects and knives.

 The Governor of Sinaloa has admitted that there are faults in the prison security system.

    If they stopped attempting to cross illegally or were completely non threatning to USBP agents, these incidents would never occur, blame if it must be assigned lies with the agressor throwing rocks. Our friendly southern neighbor NEVER accepts responsibility for the conditions there that drive their own citizens into desperation to leave their native country.Their concern and compassion for their citizens is ALWAYS AFTER the fact, never before!

  2. Wayne Says:

    Assuming these reports of violence are true, they don’t hold a candle to what Mexicans are doing to each other by the hour, day, week, year with no end in sight. I have no sympathy. Maybe they will learn that entering the U.S. legally is much safer. Maybe they will learn to stay on their side of the border. Seems violence is all that they understand, maybe. I’ll just bet it doesn’t do much good to go to the Mexican government to complain when Americans are kidnapped, robbed, and whatever else strikes the perp at the moment. Cry me a river. And as far as marching in protest on American streets, now may not be a good time considering the mood of the American population. So, to all those thinking of crossing our border illegally, don’t and stop the violence.

    So we killed 1 and they killed 6, but they’re still bitchin’ about us. Wonderful..

  4. Tom Gates Says:

    The kid that was shot by the border patrol agent were with a gang of people throwing rocks at the agents. If he wasn’t there throwing rocks he wouldn’t have gotten shot.
