    It's little wonder that there is an endemic culture of violence and corruption in the Border Patrol when there is such a conspicuous vacuum of leadership (then and now) at the top.

    From here:

    On Thursday, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff gave a press conference in San Ysidro, California, near the site of the shooting in which he essentially defended the killing. “This is the kind of thing that occurs when people try to illegally cross the border,” he said. “There is zero tolerance for violence along the border.”

    "The kind of things that occur" is NOT how one should manage people with badges and guns among a larger population.

    Agreed. This is from 2006, and obviously his attitude has carried over from then.

    Chertoff has dual citizenship. To which country does he really pledge allegiance to?

    Does he? How did you find this out? Which other country?
