U.S. border agency's head of internal affairs removed from post

This is way the hell overdue.
I believe there are many, many instances of criminal behavior that have been swept under the rug by this guy.
Time to take out the garbage.



U.S. border agency's head of internal affairs removed from post


The head of internal affairs for U.S. Customs and Border Protection was removed from his post Monday amid criticism that he failed to investigate hundreds of allegations of abuse and use of force by armed border agents, officials said.
James F. Tomscheck, who has held the post since 2006, is a 30-year veteran of federal law-enforcement agencies. He was given a temporary assignment in another job in Customs and Border Protection, which is the parent agency of the Border Patrol.

FBI Director James B. Comey will assign an FBI agent to replace Tomscheck with orders to be more aggressive at investigating abuse cases, officials said. It is highly unusual for a federal agency to bring an outsider in to run internal affairs.
Senior officials at the Department of Homeland Security concluded that Tomscheck had not assigned enough investigators to review hundreds of complaints of abuse and excessive force by Border Patrol agents, said a senior official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
“There will be a complete examination of internal affairs,” the official said.

  1. Having someone from the FBI come in, to an agency in a Department of which the FBI is not an agency, is pretty much unheard of in federal service. Having the FBI investigate is also unheard of - the Inspector General for DHS should be the investigating lead. Our whole government has gone haywire since Obama has taken the throne (well he seems to think he is king anyway). My bet is that Tomscheck was instructed from higher on up not to investigate certain allegations because they would create an atmosphere of political incorrectness had they been fully investigated and now he is being used as a scapegoat so who ever higher up the chain ordered it does not get investigated. Again, that is just my guess.
