"Over the last few years, the organization I work for has developed a pretty comprehensive understanding of the area we cover, which at times has been one of the most heavily traveled sections of the entire border. We’ve formed a fairly clear picture of where traffic starts, where it goes, how it gets there, where it’s busy and where it’s slow at any given time, where the pinch points are, and so on. I honestly believe that if I worked for the Border Patrol I could basically point at a map and tell them how to shut down the whole sector. It’s really not rocket science. Keep in mind that all of our work has been done by untrained civilian volunteers, armed with low-end GPS units, a few old trucks, run-of-the-mill mapping software, cheap cell phones with spotty service, and a very limited budget. Does it seem logical that we could figure this stuff out while the government of the United States of America cannot[?]"

"The incident started when kids threw rocks at US Border Patrol agents who were riding bicycles on a bridge between El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez. Apparently rock throwing is a crime punishable by death on the spot, so one agent shot and killed 15-year-old Sergio Adrián Hernández Huereka. Mexican authorities say Hernández was shot inside Mexico. Border Patrol says he was trying to illegally cross into the US (and he was throwing rocks). Hernández's father told AFP, "There were lots of kids and the border patrol cop... started firing off shots and hit my son, my baby twice in the head."
