(CNN) -- A Border Patrol agent was shot and killed Tuesday, while another was wounded near Naco, Arizona, authorities said.
...

The agent killed was identified as 30-year-old Nicholas Ivie. A native of Provo, Utah, he joined the Border Patrol in January 2008.
These are the good guys. Rest In Peace Agent Ivie.

That's too bad. Condolences to his family, friends, and coworkers, and a speedy recovery to the wounded officer.

They don't give enough support to those agencies!

If they are the same batch of guns you can expect no major media coverage once again. Oh, and that someone well known will get away with murder again

Fighting a war without teeth from those in charge is merciless to the brave soldiers on our borders and in other countries. I pray for them all, they deserve much better than this.

We just hit the 2000 dead Service Members Mark in Afghanistan. Bring them home and put them on our borders so they can at least help curb the bloodshed in their own country for gods sake.

Moses said "Let my people go.", and it fell on deaf ears.

We say "Bring our people home." with the same result...

I can find very little fault with this line of thinking. If they are shot on the AZ border, at least they could use a helicopter evacuation to a major trauma center hospital. Heck, individual units might get to rotate home for a week every other month or something, with the decrease in transport times.

That's the question anyone who's been paying attention is asking. That's an indictment of the times right there.
