Judge awards $500,000 to immigrant shot by Border Patrol

TUCSON, Arizona: A former US. Border Patrol agent who shot and wounded a Mexican man intentionally used excessive force and was not justified in opening fire, a federal judge said as he awarded the victim half a million dollars in a lawsuit.

Gunfire hit Jesus Castro-Romo of Nogales, Sonora, in the stomach on November 16, 2010, after he was caught crossing illegally from Mexico into the Arizona desert.

Former agent Abel Canales did not face criminal charges after the shooting was deemed justified by Colorado prosecutors, who reviewed the case because federal prosecutors in Arizona had a conflict of interest.

In a ruling issued February 5 in the civil case, Judge James A. Soto awarded Castro-Romo nearly $500,000 in damages and said Canales lacked credibility.

It's had to believe but this agent was not criminally charged with anything.

I dunno. The people I know that have been shot tell me it's not something they would want to go thru again. I doubt this victim is telling his buddies to go-for-it.

The point I found particularly interesting is the judge had the balls to say the cop was not credible. Could it be that the worm is turning? At what point will a cop's word not be automatically accepted as the gospel in courts everywhere?

I know if I sit on a civil/criminal jury, I will not convict/make an award on a cop's word.

No doubt. "taxpayer" is just another word for extortion.

I disagree.

It's damned hard today for a judge to go against the grain. A judge has to have a functioning "moral center" to slam the bad guys in government with a serious award. In todays environment, a judge that serves the public takes a real risk that his job will not be secure for very long.
