Agent's death accidental; smuggler may face charges, says Border Patrol Yuma sector chief

The autopsy performed on U.S. Border Patrol agent James Epling revealed he died as a result of an accidental drowning and that there was no foul play involved, officials announced at a news conference Saturday. However, according to Michael Nicley, patrol agent in charge of the Yuma sector, charges still could be filed against the smuggler agents currently have in custody for his role in the death, in addition to charges of alien smuggling.

At least the guy was DOING SOMETHING, better that your eventual anurism whilst jerking off or taking a dump.

3 kids and a pregnant wife. God bless his family.

I'm for giving the boot to all the illegals in this country, but there is something basic about being human that rises above self-preservation. Yes, and if the opportunity arises, I will go for it.

Definate hero and a loss to human kind.

If the Mexican involved was paid for smuggling the Chinese in it should be Murder 1, death as a result of a felony.

I have 27 years as a public servant 3 life saving ribbons -
I ssued for saving a person at the risk of my own life.
I think you misunderstand my post.
It was not meant to reflect on the officer, just the circumstances of his demise, if you can not understand , ok.
Link Posted: 12/21/2003 3:14:23 PM EDT
My bad. Totally misunderstood your meaning. Maybe "senseless" rather than "dumb" would have conveyed the intended meaning.

Precisely the reason I avoided putting the original thread in the GD, to avoid the bickering that was sure to follow.


Apparently some here would watch a woman drown instead of trying to help. Speaks volumes.

I sure would not die trying to protect the life of a person who was breaking the law. If you can not understand that , again ok.

If you would choose to risk death to save a bank robber who jumped into a river to  escape you,  well it is your life, your decision.

I would have  called the divers and let them get some O/T looking  for him/her --- I am PC makes no difference.

That is rich, calling civil comments/discussion on a post bickering, the only rude character I have seen here is a LEO, named FiveO.

Cold_Warrior, disagreed with me but was civil about it. The more I see FiveO post the more I get the feeling he is one of those I am above the law types.

Your feeling is wrong, Pal, but have at it. Heck "report" me to "copcrimes.com" that'll teach me! That "complaint" would have about as much credibility as the few rants I was able to force myself to read there.

Frankly I question that your post did not intentionally trivialize the Agent's sacrifice, but that is based on the "feeling" I get from reading many of your posts and hey, I could be wrong.

Take care now.

Edited to add that this thread should not have "gone there" and to offer my apologies for my role in that happening.
