I did not mention the fbi in this post, I have a few current comments regarding the fbi/batfe in other posts. Do not portray me as saying things I did NOT say.
Border Patrol is primarily supposed to interact with with foreigners, NOT Americans. If BP agents were nine feet tall cyclopes that could hear an illegally crossing mexican walking in sand at a thousand yards that would be ok by me.
For the most part you are correct, however there is no shortage of Americans out there actively smuggling narcotics, aliens and anything else to make a profit.
This entire episode could have been avoided if he would have just pulled over when requested to. The stop would probably have lasted less than 30 seconds. But guys like this always believe the law does not apply to them.
How does a Border Agent know who is an American or not without I.D.ing the person or persons in a car or building near the border? Or someone just walking around?
I didn't look up your other post, I included the FBI because of their new role post 9/11.
If you can tell the difference between a Foreigner and an American near the Border WITHOUT running the person's name or checking ID, PLEASE share your secret! Thats a talent even Miss Cleo doesn't have!!
