    SAN DIEGO – A federal grand jury is investigating the death of an illegal immigrant from Mexico who was shot by U.S. border authorities with a stun gun, suggesting the government is considering criminal charges after more than two years of silence on the politically charged case.
    Eugene Iredale, an attorney representing the family of victim Anastasio Hernandez, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he understood attorneys from the U.S. Justice Department's civil rights division have been presenting evidence to the grand jury.
    A person other than Iredale who is close to the Hernandez family said two eyewitnesses to the incident have been called to testify Thursday in San Diego. The person, who spoke directly with the witnesses, requested anonymity because grand jury proceedings are supposed to be secret.

    Why? An illegal engaged in that behavior should be considered a hostile intruder, thus a non-person.

    This is probably the only LE job that I will never go after!! How is it that a law breaking illegal alien has more rights than a cop who was worn to uphold the law. It seems as if the US Govt never stands behind these guys.

    Oh they do. Both of their hands on the agent's shoulders and feet greater than shoulder width apart for deeper thrusting.

    After I passed my background, I withdrew. Didn't want to move my family to a warzone to chase after a cause my employer truly has no interest in.

    I hope this agent (if acted appropriately) does not take it up the bum like the last few did.

    Great benefits, you learn Spanish and it's a good strepping stone into a federal career.

    Some people thinks it's worth a shit gig for a few years if it helps you in the end.
