Hernandez Rojas Dies After Border Patrol Agents Taser and Beat Him (Video)
The introduction to this week's cover story, "Cloaked Brutality, is chilling. It shows immigrant Anastasio Hernandez Rojas' final moments of consciousness. As U.S. Border Patrol agents deported him on May 28, they beat and stun-gunned him until he lay stone still. Hernandez Rojas was pronounced dead in a hospital.
These final moments were recorded in grainy video from a cell-phone camera belonging to Humberto Navarrete, a young man from San Diego. While the video is less than clear, Rojas' cries for help and screams of pain are not. Hear them for yourself in the video above.
