Update on Taser-Torture of Anastasio Hernández Rojas [Video]

The groundswell of outrage against the Custom & Border Patrol (CBP) for their brutal taser-related killing of Anastasio Hernández Rojas grows day-by-day. Mexican activists regularly meet at the border to protest the behavior of the CBP officers that killed Rojas earlier this month as shown in the above photo shared with this blog by AFSC-San Diego.

The case for law enforcement officials was not helped by the images and sounds of the Rojas beatdown as caught on the following (grainy) video:

The family of Anastasio Hernandez Rojas shared their thoughts on his death, which occurred after border agents beat and shot him with a taser gun. A family spokesperson and other human rights groups are very clear in their condemnation of the actions of border agents.

What are your thoughts on this case?  Also, does anyone have a digital photo of Mr. Hernandez-Rojas that you can share with me.  I haven't been able to locate one yet.
