This is what happens when there are mass hirings without proper background investigations conducted.

You can point too many reasons as to why sick people like this one are hired. The fact of the matter is that every department big or small have their bad apples. By reading the article it appears that he wasn't a border officer very long yet he was abusing this little girl since '06. Was she his step daughter? It's unfortunate that incidents like these over shadow the good of other officers. Well, if he's guilty he will surely pay.

What would a background check have yielded??? He was in the military which is just a disgrace!!! If he was in the military previously, then he had to have previously had a background check. As a result the Border Patrol likely hired him with little suspicion...no previous record...military service. The guy was likely a shoe-in.

Wait for the plea bargain. The last jerk got 18 months probation. I hope the new judge will stand her ground and put this guy behind bars forever.

No this is an example of an individual who evaded security clearances as word is that this guy was also an army ranger w/ several tours in iraq. If i'm not mistaken security clearances don't include computer checks. Maybe I'm wrong. If convicted I hope the courts are not lenient on him as he would be a disgrace to any officer.

They do include computer checks. In fact, before you can enter any branch of service a background check has to be conducted. Then upon entering, depending on your AFSC/MOS you may or may not have to undergo more in-depth background checks. But as I said previously...if he had never been caught they could have looked until the cows came home and found nothing. This guy is a disgrace to every honorable man or woman who ever served.

I was going to say the same thing. If there was nothing IN his background, then the most thorough background search of all searches wouldn't have revealed he's a pedophile. However, I'm curious how he passed a psych test -- which is usually required for most law enforcement positions. One aspect of the psych test addresses this very thing. Maybe border patrol doesn't do psych tests.

Prayers for the little girl that she gets the mental counseling/help she needs.

Please send him to Mexico with a sign on his neck that reads "Drug Informant". Shortly thereafter, his head would be hanging from an overpass. It would save American taxpayers a ton of money and give the child peace in knowing she will never have to worry about the sick S-O-B again!

yo conozco a ese muchacho y les puedo asegurar que nunca pense que pudiera hacer algo asi , tiene que estar loco para haber echo eso , definitivamente perdio la cabeza , ademas tiene que verlo un psiquiatra porque el es un veterano de guerra y estoy convencida que eso mismo tuvo que haberlo transtornado , siempre fue un muchacho muy bueno e intachable incapaz de hacerle daño a nadie y menos a una niña .
No lo estoy justificando , pero haria falta que lo atendieran sicologicamente porque estoy segura que perdio la razon .
Siento muchisimo lo ocurrido y lamento mucho lo ocurrido a esa niña .
Mis mas sinceros deseos que esa niña se recupere de toda esa pesadilla .

98& of the comments in this discussion are anti-child molester. Yet David the karate guy also molested a baby girl and the anti-child molesters were at about 80%. Is that because the pro-child molester posters give David consideration because he is from Silver City, and not a Border Patrol Agent?

Not as part of their routine hiring practice. I've known that only certain individuals get poly'd or on an expedited process not every applicant. Especially now with budget cuts even less will get it. Too bad bad apples need to be weeded out!

maybe it's because we have no idea who this David guy is that you're talking about...?
