On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case asking whether families have the right to sue when a shooting occurs on Mexican soil. Fifteen-year-old Sergio Hernandez and his friends were playing chicken at the U.S.-Mexico border, daring each other to run up and touch the tall border fence.
Border patrol agent Jesus Mesa arrived and detained one of the kids on the U.S. side while the others ran away. Hernandez, having escaped, hid behind a pillar on the Mexican side. A cellphone video shows the boy peeking out from behind the column before Mesa shot and killed him.
