I give credit to the department for how they handled the situation. They gave me time to think about it. There were some on and off discussions about maybe moving me around in the department or me holding on until I had found another job, but I knew what I had to do.




 When you become a cog in “the thing that crushes” —  enforcement apparatus — your good intentions have a way of evaporating and you become implicated whether you like it or not.

ICE Spokesman Quits Over Leaders' Use Of 'Misleading Facts'
https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2018/03/13/593104213/ice-spokesman-quits-over-leaders-use-of-misleading-facts-to-discuss-calif-arrest


ICE spokesman resigns, citing fabrications by agency chief, Sessions

“I didn’t feel like fabricating the truth to defend ourselves against [the mayor’s] actions was the way to go about it,” he told the Chronicle. “We were never going to pick up that many people. To say that 100 percent are dangerous criminals on the street, or that those people weren’t picked up because of the misguided actions of the mayor, is just wrong.”

If reporters asked him about Homan’s and Sessions’s comments, he said, his superiors at ICE told him to simply “deflect to previous statements” from those top officials.

“It’s the job of a public affairs officer to offer transparency for the agency you work for,” Schwab told the Chronicle.
“I’ve never been in a situation when I’ve been asked to ignore the facts because it was more convenient.”

As the days went by, he told CNN, “I just couldn’t bear the burden — continuing on as a representative of the agency and charged with upholding integrity, knowing that information was false.”

“An incident in the Rio Grande Valley Sector on February 14, 2017, involved seven U.S. Border Patrol Agents assaulted by six subjects utilizing three different types of projectiles (rocks, bottles, and tree branches), totaling 126 assaults.”
"the mere brandishing of an object constitutes assault."

How the Border Patrol Faked Statistics Showing a 73 Percent Rise in Assaults Against Agents

That "enhanced accounting" is not unheard of.  Its very similar to the way police inflated the number of methamphetamine makers by changing the definition of "meth lab" from a dwelling to any bottle or container that could have been used in the manufacture.

2005-2017.     12 years..   For all the border agents nationwide?     Considering Tulsa alone seems to pay out millions a year, those numbers are pretty awesome.
