The federal government values human life at around $8-9M. How many troops should we deploy, and at what cost, to ensure no agents die again? $100M/yr? Moreover, there have been only 31 shooting deaths since 1924. It's hardly an epidemic.
Alternatively, you can be an adult about the inherent riskiness of the profession.
Strawman? Thanks BEP.
The fact you don't recognize the different climate between now and 1924 on our borders shows you are ignorant of the situation.
I think its cute you admit to the need for a military solution for securing our borders?
As to the rest of this disjointed rant: WTF? I'm interested to hear you explain your last sentence.
