For Quasimodo

The case against the Border Patrol agents is beginning to fall apart.

Two Border Patrol agents who testified against two co-workers convicted of shooting a drug smuggler will be fired [and a third resigned] for changing their stories about events surrounding the shooting, ...

The agents were given immunity in exchange for their testimony despite changing their accounts of the incident several times.

At this point, I'm not going to say conclusively that the agents are innocent. However, the fact that they were put into general population, where they were then beaten, combined with the hokey testimony against them, is setting off every alarm in my head.

There's something fishy about the whole thing, starting with the fact that the two agents would be prosecuted for doing their damn job, i.e. stopping a drug smuggler from entering the country.

I'm willing to bet my paycheck that the two agents now sitting in jail are innocent, and the case against them is a bunch of made-up crap.
