A new video shows Anastacio Hernadez-Rojas lying on the ground in the fetal position, circled by at least a dozen federal agents as one repeatedly shocks him with an electric stun gun.



The video was shot by a passer-by and was obtained by the lawyer for the Hernandez-Rojas family as they push on with their wrongful death suit against the US government.



The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) aired the video and an interview with the woman who shot it as part of a new documentary. In May 2010, Seattle resident Ashley Young was crossing a bridge from Mexico to the United States. In the "Need to Know" report, Young said that she saw the man lying on the ground was handcuffed. She said she did not witness any evidence of Hernandez-Rojas lashing out at the agents, but they are clearly heard yelling in the video for him to stop resisting. He was then tasered five times while calling for help in Spanish.



She also said that a small crowd had gathered on the bridge and some yelled for the agents to stop. But the officers came along to tell the onlookers to keep walking. One officer demanded that witnesses hand over their cell phones or delete the video they had taken, she said, but she kept walking. Young told PBS she "felt like she watched someone be murdered."



Anastacio Hernadez-Rojas’ death was ruled a 'homicide' by the San Diego medical examiner and was investigated by police, yet no border control agents were charged for their part in the incident.



This will undoubtedly create even more tension, as public outcry about the case has been gaining momentum for two years. It raised serious questions about border agents and what they can potentially do without facing the repercussions of their actions.



The PBS documentary was attempting to draw attention to whether border control has been using excessive force on illegal immigrants after eight people were killed along the border in the past two years.

  • It’s unfortunate that he died, but it’s more unfortunate that he thought it was ok to run the border.
    I would need to understand the entire encounter before making judgment on who did what. As far as I’m concerned they did what they are there to do. Keep the illegals from crossing the border. Since most are returned unharmed, I would say that this propaganda machine isn’t telling the entire story. If it’s found that he deserved what he got, they should grab these loosers that are slan More..

  • He clearly resisted and deserved it.
















    Maybe not. But who cares.

  • They conveniently forgot to mention that he was an illegal alien resisting deportation. The only pity here is that he wasn't shot while breaking into the country in the first place. So much for sovereignty.

  • As per normal with these videos, it is manipulated for a one way argument. I've read he was an illegal, on meth, resisting arrest and seeing the amount of border patrol officers around him kinda makes me think it wasn't a case of 1 officer beating him up..maybe they are all in on it together! I won't be contacting the justice department without all the facts. Next!

  • i honestly didn't see anything in the video people standing over him. a guy shot with a taser well if i was doing stupid illegal shit I'd assume I'd have the same punishment. If he wasnt a meth head he'd have probably been fine.

  • Honestly, there is no reason to violate human rights. We need to find a way to quickly document people who want to work here and end the war on drugs. A strong neighboring country is the best line of defense. China knows this so why is the US struggling to grasp the concept....

    • @neutral_person We have Canada. We don't need mexico. Find one latin country that isnt corrupt as shit and/or a total shithole..and when you can't you have your answer. This country was pushed into its world power place thanks to skilled immigrants from Europe who came here in the late 1800's/early 1900's. Now our immigrants are from third world countries and bring what skills?

    • @TheEvilDead Excuse me? Mexico is not going anywhere so if there is one latin country you should care about it should be the one across the boarder. Also you forget it was not only the euro immigrants but also the asian immigrants who helped build this country.

      And much like the past immigrants to this great country, they should be given the chance to prosper and add to this great nation.

  • Further proof....cops are covering up a lot of events good or bad...tecnology can be further used to stop such actions but with states and counties passing wiretapping laws, it seems they are more interested in protecting these SOBs....not looking out in the ppls interest..
