Pamela Powers Hannley, a progressive voice for Arizona
Back in July, I reported that the Border Patrol ordered removal of a shrine in memory of 19-year-old, US citizen Carlos Lamadrid, who was shot by the Border Patrol in March 2011.
Yes, Carlos was running marijuana along the border, but he was a US citizen and a human being. He didn’t deserve to die. The Border Patrol wants us to forget they killed him. Here’s a link to the latest story in the Arizona Daily Star. Note Carlos’ family is suing the US government for wrongful death.
