Mexico condemns second fatal US police shooting

US Border Patrol agents talk next to the US-Mexico border fence on December 9, 2014 near Nogales, ArizonaMexico’s government lambasted US police on Wednesday over a second fatal shooting of a Mexican national this month, saying Texas authorities failed to notify consular officials about the latest death. The foreign ministry issued a statement expressing its “strong condemnation” of the February 20 shooting of Ruben Garcia Villalpando, 31, by an officer from the city of Grapevine. The Grapevine police department’s failure to notify the consulate constitutes “an obvious violation” of its obligations under the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. Mexico demanded an exhaustive investigation by Texas prosecutors and sent protest letters to the police chiefs of Grapevine and the neighboring town of Euless.
