    Border Patrol officer was killed after he mistakenly fired on fellow agents

    PHOENIX — The head of the U.S. Border Patrol agents’ union says the agent killed last week in a shooting in southern Arizona apparently opened fire on two colleagues thinking they were armed smugglers and was killed when they returned fire.

    Well I guess that cinches it. George is a friend of mine. If he says that is the story, then that is the story.
    My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon. Go big or stay on the porch.

    Another factor is the fact that the Obuma unloading process is comng soon, so any suggestion that the Border is unsafe, has to be countered. So having untrained BPO shooting each other is a very tempting fabrication to divert attention from the fact that the Border is very dangerus, and is escalating.

    Next they wil be saying to lower the Border violence even more, keep the BPO at their central office instead of running all over the Border doing what they were created for.. He he he

    Actually I just assumed that he was probably taking evasive action when hit. Not everyone who is running away or has their back turned are cowards. Some are just looking for a better defensive position. But you can call it running away if you like.
