Border Patrol Can Shoot Rock Throwers, HPers Yawn

The Huffington Post covered a story that apparently some border guards can shoot children who throw rocks at long as those border guards are Americans and the children in question are Mexicans. Some of the Huffington Post readership engaged in the classic "blame America first" (and taking shots at Israel too) we have come to expect, but most seemed to think that if people throw rocks at you you are allowed to defend yourself. Imagine that.

Just imagine what the comments would be like if it was Israel who made that decision instead of America.
