Phoenix friendly fire



Quote:
Associated Press= PHOENIX (AP) The head of the Border Patrol agents union says the agent killed last week in a shooting in southern Arizona apparently opened fire on two fellow agents thinking they were armed smugglers and was killed when they returned fire.

National Border Patrol Council president George McCubbin said Sunday that the two sets of agents approached an area where a sensor had been activated. He says they arrived from different directions early Tuesday when Agent Nicholas Ivie opened fire.

Acting Cochise County Sheriff Rod Rothrock confirmed the scenario but would not say if Ivie was the first to shoot.

The shooting happened a few miles north of the border with Mexico, in a well-known smuggling area.

The FBI announced Friday that the shooting appeared to be a case of friendly fire.

They can't tell a guy in uniform from a smuggler? What kind of training do they give those guys? confused2shocked_yellow

Bear in mind they were Americans, so they were none too bright, plus it was dark and it's not easy to identify Mexicans in poor light conditions.

Looking on the bright side, at least they now know their guns are in working order.
