The story unfolds: Traveling by commercial airlines from Albuquerque, NM to LasVegas,NV, Harger was asked by TSA to show his credentials. Minutes later a man flashed a badge claiming to be a federal agent (agency unknown) also demanding to see Harger’s credentials.
Harger informed the federal agent that he was traveling to attend the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association Convention in LasVegas....
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

Trust the police to interpret the constitution do you? Why is that?
Is it because you believe a person that looks and thinks like you will protect your interests?
That's not going to do it for me. I prefer the judicial system to interpret the constitution. It's not perfect, but it's better than any other system I've seen so far.
Everything changed for Shane Harger on Oct. 20, 2007.
He was in his first year as a Valencia County sheriff's deputy when he responded to a 911 call from then-Albuquerque police Officer Levi Chavez II, who told dispatchers his wife, Tera Chavez, had fatally shot herself with his duty weapon.
Harger saw a number of things at the Chavez home in Los Lunas that were inconsistent with suicide, he told attorneys 15 months later.
