The man killed by a Border Patrol agent Friday in Green Valley was unarmed but had turned and made what appeared to be a threatening gesture, according to a Pima County Sheriff's detective.

Agent Daniel Marquez fired at Jose Luis Arambula nine times, striking him once behind the left ear, according to PCSD Detective David Theel, who spoke at a press conference Monday at Sheriff's headquarters in Tucson.

    Its clearly become a cause for growing concern amongst the public at large that the use of deadly force by law enforcement agencies be reviewed and drastically overhauled. There certainly are arguably less deadly solutions then discharging a weapon 9 times at a fleeing suspect and hitting him from behind. That being said, I am certain that an argument can be made on behalf of the officer involved that he did follow procedure. In fact even if he didn't follow procedure that argument will be successful. Why? Because the policies and procedures regarding the use of deadly force are written to protect and preserve the lives of law enforcement officials. Because of that they lend themselves to the defense of a law officer in a wrongful death shooting. Was this guy a bad guy? He probably was. Do we want to usurp the judicial system at the extended arm of a law enforcement officer? Is there a chance of mistake in this sudden justice system? Some might say the taxpayers saved a couple of dollars this time ..... but who pays the bill if there's a mistake .... don't we all?

    Unarmed, but a very dangerous person with no regard for anyone else's safety. It was most likely only a matter of time before he killed someone. Good to have him off our streets!
