A CBS News investigation finds that allegations of sexual misconduct in the ranks of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPM) is “higher than other federal law enforcement agencies” according to a former agent head, the news outlet reports.One victim was reportedly just 5 years old.
According to CBS News, one agent in Arizona was indicted for sexually assaulting a 5-year-old off duty. The report claims this is just one of many cases where agents, on or off duty, are accused of sex crimes against women and children.
The man who blew the whistle on CPM is none other than James Tomsheck, who was in charge of handling sexual misconduct investigations under his role as Chief of Internal Affairs at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. CBS News reports Tomsheck found that there was a “spike” of “more than 35 sexual misconduct cases against agents, a rate he says was significantly higher than other law enforcement agencies.”
CBS News also claims that in the past 6 years, at least 21 customs or border patrol agents have been indicted or pleaded guilty to sexual offenses.
Disturbing for sure. What do you think vigilant viewers? Sounds like many of our government agencies need a complete overhaul.
