The family of a 32-year-old mother of five shot and killed by a Border Patrol agent as he rode on her car’s hood in suburban San Diego has filed a wrongful death claim against the agency, saying the agent had a long history of misconduct in a previous law enforcement job and should not have been on the street….The documents, a required precursor for a lawsuit, say the agent, 34-year-old Justin Tackett, was suspended four times for misconduct including crashing a patrol car and violating suspects’ rights in the nearly four years that he worked as an Imperial County sheriff’s deputy. Tackett had been given a notice that he’d be fired just before he quit the job in 2003, the documents say.
The incident is bad, but one can question weather the officer was first assaulted with the deadly weapon of a car. Still this officer was doing a lot of bad things over a series of several years. Why do Law Enforcement Agencies let it come to this?
