Most Corrupt Administration

This is just a quickie, a bookmark really, and yet another tale about a whistleblower sidelined by the Obama administration in order to protect the important people {read: criminal elite} from the rest of us.

Rob O’Dell, “Border Patrol agent: ‘I shot and there’s someone dead in Mexico’,” The Republic, 26 July 2016:

The story developing in court is that the Mexican kid, on the Mexico side of the fence, threw a rock and hit a K-9 officer so the border patrol agent of course had to murder him.

But there’s a different tale being kept from the court and for the most part the media. There’s a whistleblower.

There is video of the Elena Rodriguez killing, but Customs and Border Protection repeatedly has denied requests from The Republic to release the video. It has never been released publicly.

One person who said he has seen the video is James Tomsheck, the Assistant Commissioner of the Customs and Border Protection’s Office of Internal Affairs. He was reassigned in 2014 and subsequently retired.

Tomsheck filed a federal whistleblower retaliation complaint over his removal.

In several media interviews, he said that two Nogales police officers and a Border Patrol agent are standing at the fence without weapons drawn as marijuana smugglers are scaling the fence.

Tomsheck said that Swartz then comes up pulls out this gun, sticks it through the fence and begins firing. He empties his clip, reloads and fires again, Tomsheck said. He said no rocks can be seen in the video.

In a deposition for a civil case in another cross-border killing, Tomsheck said that “despite Border Patrol reporting that rocks had been thrown and a least one rock had struck and injured the Nogales Police Department police canine, FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) personally reported to me that no such incident had occurred and Nogales police denied anything of that sort had occurred.”

Even if the victim were throwing rocks, the agent would not have been in danger because of the geography, Tomsheck said in his deposition.

Because the Mexican side of the fence where Elena Rodriguez died is about 25 feet lower than the U.S. side, it would be all but impossible for a rock thrown from Mexico to hit someone near the fence on the U.S. side, he said.

Tomsheck said in the deposition that there are as many as seven or eight suspect incidents of use of force by the Border Patrol and that in many of the instances he believed that “Border Patrol leadership brought information that was not accurate about the incident … to skew the perception of the incident in the direction of it being an appropriate use of force when in fact it was not.”

Remember, this is the “liberal” administration who went after Thomas Drake and John Kiriakou. Not to mention lots of others whose names you will likely never hear.

Interesting to note that reassigned and subsequent retirement is what tends to happen when one is stepping on the toes of some non-Department of Defense entity, whereas the DoD seems to favor fake suicides whenever their drug deals are about to be revealed. Now we know which Department of Homeland Security prefers when it comes to coverups.
