The ?? are purposely from me as it seems he also has an agenda and there are more then just two videos of him floating around - each one showing nearly the same scenario - guy gets stopped at a checkpoint - guy resists - guy eggs on the patrol - guy gets smacked by the patrol...or sumum like this........now for sure the the patrol dudes were way out of line - at least from what we've all seen, yet the "pastor" seems to be a bit out of line himself.....

The pastor was being a bit of a jerk, the kind of behaviour that smacks of disrespect and being unwilling to be cooperative - and yeah, that sets off red flags for border checkpoint guys.
The fact he was videotaping the incident smacks of intent to "create a scene" and almost guarentees he was TRYING to illict a negative response.
Careful pastor - you might just get what you're after. Oh wait. You did.
And now you have the limelight as a "victim" while denying your responsibility as part of a greater American Collective.
Yay. No wonder our country is going to crap in so many areas.
Everyone wants respect and rights, but seem to think law enforcement isn't deserving of the same considerations.
These videos are a joke, and symptomatic of a class of people I not only wish to distance myself from - but also pray I'm never behind in line at one of those checkpoints.
They hold things up,
create drama and just make the agents on duty even more angry, suspicious and intolerant of citizens....
which leads to further instances of unfair behaviour and bad treatment of average people. Vicious cycle.
And Interstate 8? One of the main routes for drug trade, human smuggling etc...
Just be polite, roll down your window four inches, answer the questions and keep the line moving.
"In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;
And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;
And then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;
And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up."
Upon thought, it occured to me that the mention of a Supreme Court decision that was bandied about by the Border Patrol officer was in reference to...? The US Supreme Court? Or the NM State Supreme Court?
