From the Police Blotter: ‘Dressed Right for a Beach Fight’

 

Border Patrol agents had a fight on Imperial Beach, CA, with a suspected coyote at the border wall. The FBI has said they will conduct an investigation.

An investigation of what? An investigation of a Border Patrol agent that was protecting himself. Or will the FBI prosecute the suspected coyote for resisting arrest? Who knows, but all I see is a proper response from the Border Patrol agent and a textbook example of the Force Continuum Pyramid.

I’m sure that the FBI has more important things to do, like a midnight raid to seize a Republican’s cell phone.

    Imperial Beach? Maybe John from Cincinnati is involved somehow. (Yes, I’m the one who loved that show. Every so often I have to go watch it again just to revel in the what IS this thing of it all.)

    Plus there’s investigating all those terrorist cells in the PTA.

    Yeah, it sort of makes you wonder how they can be monitoring all those Chinese espionage rings not to mention the ISIS terrorists.  They must have more people than I thought they had.  

    Possibly, the IRS will be lending them some folks.

    It is good to see our government has its priorities straight.  We prosecute border patrol and local law enforcement for enforcing the laws.  We prosecute Republicans for trying to hold government accountable and keep unelected officials from subverting the laws.   We prosecute small business owners for attempting to make money legally.  Meanwhile we collude with a criminal cartel to make sure it is able to break our laws continuously and make record profits.

    No, you and me. But I think that’s it.

    One of the biggest things I remember about John from Cincinnati was that the opening scene was the next thing that came on the screen right after the famous black screen at the end of the final Sopranos episode.

    Sitting there wondering what happened to the TV, cursing because Tony was right in the middle of a conversation and I didn’t want to miss anything. Suddenly there’s a guy on a surfboard.

    Boom.

    What are you talking about, Doug Watt?  There are several obvious federal violations:

    1.  Neither agent disclosed his/her vaccination status nor requested the suspects’ preferred pronouns in advance of the confrontation.
    2. Neither arrestee was presented with voter registration forms pursuant to federal and California regs.
    3. Once the suspects indicated that they would prefer not to be arrested, all intervention should have ceased unless a social worker or qualified specialist was on site.
    4. There was clearly no advanced consent to the tackle. (It was a pretty good tackle, by the way, but a bit high–better to take out the runner closer to or below his center of mass.)

    Ha! I think that’s why a lot of people hated it from the get-go. Meanwhile, I never watched “The Sopranos,” never was quite able to jump on that train, but I told myself: There’s a new HBO show starting now, and I am going to watch it from the very first episode. And then it got mostly loathed. Still … man, it had its moments.

    Written by David Milch, of Deadwood fame. Amazing writing.

    But we probably shouldn’t hijack Doug’s fine thread here.

    The Federal Bureau of Intimidation stans at the ready to investigate anyone or anything but Hunter Biden.

    The PTA and its renamed locals have been taken over by activist teachers.

    And when parents push back, THEY’RE somehow the problem.
