Outrage in Texas After Airborne Police Sharpshooter Kills 2

The New York Times reports that in the border town of La Joya, Texas, a police sharpshooter from the Texas Department of Public Safety shot at a red pickup truck that he and other state police officers believed was carrying illegal drugs. Tragically, the officer killed two undocumented Guatemalan men who were hiding in the bed of the truck. 

This incident (committed by a state police officer) should be part of the inspection that the Office of Inspector General will be conducting on the federal government's use of excessive force at the border.
