They are civilized humans just like you.
A Border Patrol agent is under investigation for doing his job. Apparently it’s okay to publish excerpts from his personal text communications to show the world what a bigot he is for having an opinion about the foreigners he’s in contact with on a daily basis.
A Nogales Border Patrol agent called the people he apprehends “disgusting subhuman s— unworthy of being kindling for a fire” and asked the president to “PLEASE let us take the gloves off trump!,” federal prosecutors said in court documents.
The statements were made in a text message sent by Agent Matthew Bowen, 39, who is accused of knocking down a Guatemalan man with his Border Patrol vehicle on Dec. 3, 2017, and then lying in a report about the incident, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Tucson.
The agent is being investigated for knocking down a wetback with his vehicle, not for killing it. The beanman was successfully apprehended.
Bowen did nothing wrong.
Prosecutors Lori Price and Monica Ryan are asking a judge to allow some of Bowen’s text messages to be used as evidence of his “great disdain” for the people he apprehends, which could shed light on his state of mind when he hit the man with his truck.
If a jury were to see the texts, defense lawyer Sean Chapman wrote that he would argue certain terms are “commonplace throughout the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector, that it is part of the agency’s culture, and therefore says nothing about Mr. Bowen’s mind-set.”
The language in Bowen’s text messages, some of which “could be perceived as racist or offensive,” would not help a jury determine “whether he, on this occasion, set out to use excessive force to apprehend the alleged victim,” Chapman wrote.
Would you hire someone who loves goblins to protect your country from goblins? If Agent Bowen has a “great disdain” for goblins, that’s a good thing.
Among the examples the prosecutors cite is an exchange on Dec. 18, 2017, in which an unidentified person asked Bowen: “Did you gas hiscorpse (sic) or just use regular peanut oil while tazing?? For a frying effect.”
Bowen responded, “Guats are best made crispy with an olive oil from their native pais,” using a derogatory term for Guatemalan citizens and the Spanish word for country, pais.
Bowen sent numerous text messages to agent Lonnie Ray Swartz, who was acquitted last year of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges. Swartz was accused of shooting through the border fence in Nogales in 2012 and killing 16-year-old Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez in Mexico during an alleged rock-throwing incident.
Another agent doing absolutely nothing wrong. If someone throws a rock at you, you should definitely be able to shoot them. Rocks can kill people, so the threat is very real.
After a rock-throwing incident in November 2017, Bowen sent Swartz a text message calling the rock throwers “mindless murdering savages.”
Oh wow what a bigot, how can he say that violent creatures throwing rocks at him while trying to invade his country are mindless murdering savages?
In several text messages, Bowen references “tonks,” a derogatory term for border-crossing migrants. The origins of the term are unclear, but it sometimes is connected to the sound of a flashlight hitting the back of someone’s head. In another explanation, it is an acronym for “temporarily outside native country.”
The term “toncs” also appeared in text messages sent among Border Patrol agents as they planned to raid a humanitarian aid station in Ajo in January 2018, as the Star reported May 8, 2018.
The agents arrested two men who crossed the border illegally and Scott Warren, a No More Deaths volunteer who was accused of illegally harboring the men by giving them food and shelter. Warren is scheduled to stand trial later this month in Tucson’s federal court.
This is what allegedly happened:
The following is a narrative of the events that led to Bowen’s indictment, based on a sworn affidavit filed by a special agent with the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General.
Around 7:30 a.m. on Dec. 3, 2017, a CBP camera operator in Nogales saw a man who appeared to have just jumped the border fence near the Mariposa Port of Entry, the special agent wrote.
The camera operator followed the man, identified as Antolin Lopez Aguilar, a 23-year-old Guatemalan, as he ran toward a gas station about 100 yards north of the port of entry. Lopez entered an open lot behind the gas station where semitrailers were parked.
Three Border Patrol agents arrived at the lot minutes later. One agent got out of his truck and spotted Lopez hiding under a semitrailer. The agent told him to come out and surrender, but Lopez ran back toward the port of entry.
As Lopez ran away, Bowen quickly turned his truck and “accelerated aggressively into a position behind the running Lopez Aguilar — this maneuver put the front grille of the (truck) directly behind Lopez Aguilar,” the special agent wrote.
As Lopez ran, Bowen “followed closely behind him, striking Lopez Aguilar twice” with the front of the truck.
With the first contact, Lopez “reached back while running and used his hands to ‘push off’ of the hood” of the truck. Seconds later, Bowen accelerated the truck “directly into the back of Lopez Aguilar’s body, knocking Lopez Aguilar to the ground.”
The tires of the truck “came to a full stop within inches of running Lopez-Aguilar over where he lay on the ground,” the special agent wrote.
Bowen jumped out of his truck and handcuffed Lopez. The other two agents arrived seconds later. Bowen handed over Lopez, who still had gravel on his face, to the two agents and drove away.
You’re not supposed to risk goblin lives, Bowen.
Three days after the incident, Bowen sent a text message to another agent saying if he had tackled the man he still would be doing paperwork.
“I wonder how they expect us to apprehend wild ass runners who don’t want to be apprehended,” Bowen wrote.
By asking nicely, of course. Or better yet, don’t apprehend them, you racist bigot!
Whenever people hear about a Border Patrol agent calling these so-called migrants “savages” or whatever, they don’t even consider that maybe the agent — who is exposed to these foreigners on a daily basis — is in a better position than them to make this judgment. Instead, they immediately label him a “bigot” because obviously goblins are just human people like everyone else.
To make the whole “patrolling the border” task more awkward, they also want agents to be soft and caring and non-violent. Border Patrol is supposed to defend the country and its borders, but somehow it has to do it without endangering goblin lives? What a joke.
People like Agents Bowen and Swartz are needed to defend the people.
We can’t have sovereignty if all of our men are effeminate soy bugmen.
We also can’t have sovereignty if effeminate soy bugmen and women constantly scold our testosterone-fueled men about the way they do their jobs.
