A second time around, this expose on the culture of corruption & secrecy that allows Border Patrol officials literally get away with murder was even more rewarding & meaningful: it is an absolute must-read, regardless of your political persuasion.
While certainly not very sympathetic to the CBP, it does present their official positions in contrast to the dominating undertones that they are not being screened or trained (a truly disturbing revelation considering that they are the largest police force on the Continent!); that their culture of secrecy is breeding corruption; and that they are committing capital crimes at will along the nation's borders.
While some may argue that immigrants should have no rights, "federal law (18 USC 242) decrees that law enforcement officers cannot subject illegal immigrants to "different punishments, pains, or penalties" than those they can use legally against U.S. citizens."
The article reminds us as well that the Constitution applies (or can at least be argued to apply) to all persons in this country, stating that immigrants have 4th & 5th Amendment rights to protection from excessive and unreasonable force as well as from arbitrary punishment, and are entitled to due process of law, regardless of how they are treated every day by DHS, DOJ, and the deportation regime.
The most frightening thing about what this article conveys is that we have no idea how many people are being murdered, raped or robbed by our own employees along the border: if they are careless enough to get caught on video with half a dozen Rodney Kings, how many more victims lay rotting in the open desert?
