Border Protection Officers Appear To Encourage Mexican Teen To Drink From Bottle Containing Liquid Meth, Which Leads To His Death

 

Check out this ABC News report.

Footage released from 2013 shows two U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers who appear to encourage, or at least permit, a 16-year-old Mexican high school student to drink from a bottle that tests would later reveal contained concentrated liquid methamphetamine. Cruz Velazquez died within an hour of drinking the substance.  The two officers involved remain on the job today, with no disciplinary action having been taken against them.

The Velazquez family filed a civil lawsuit against the officers and the agency, claiming that the officers’ actions led to Cruz’s death.   The U.S. government settled the suit for $1 million. There was no apology or admission of wrongdoing.  Both officers testified that they never received a reprimand for their conduct
