OK. So are the Border Patrol agents less guilty of suicide because they were not in uniform? Why is this such a bone of contention? If they were private citizens, details would be flowing without such shielding. Wait. That's where the idea for the wall came from, Ex-Pres. Bush's Homeland Security Guy...Michael EvilFace. Let's just call a spade, a spade...a Border Patrol agent turned it in. Uniform or not...it's not a whiz.

Paul, I am very sorry for your loss. I would like to remember him as a person and not just an agent, what was his name?
