The ACLU is urging CBP to require its agents to wear body cameras to improve accountability and transparency, Valley Central reports.

In the past four years, CBP agents have killed about 19 people.

“We know there is a lack of oversight, accountability and training at the same time and that should be taken care of”, ACLU Advocacy Coordinator Astrid Dominguez said.

The call comes less than a week after a Border Patrol agent killed himself after assaulting three immigrants.

“When this type of incident happened, like everybody just keeps on asking questions,” Dominguez said. “In this case you know the agent is not here anymore, but what about the solutions to avoid or to prevent this type of incidents in the future.”

It’s a disturbing game – abruptly punch a stranger in the face in an attempt to knock him out with a single blow.

A white Texas man is accused of doing exactly that, knocking a 79-year-old black man to the concrete, breaking his jaw and sending him to the hospital for several days, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Authorities said the suspect, Conrad Alvin Barrett, recorded the attack, laughed and said “knockout” before fleeing.

“Suspected crimes of this nature will simply not be tolerated,” U.S. Atty. Kenneth Magidson of the Southern District of Texas said in a statement as he announced the charges against Barrett. “Evidence of hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted with the assistance of all our partners to the fullest extent of the law.”

Authorities said the “knockout game” is a disturbing trend that is often racially motivated.

Barrett is charged with violating the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act.
