    Why does anyone have to make this political?

    A family is without their son tonight, possibly a wife without her husband and kids without their father. Please can we be sensitive to their trauma.

    I would like to enjoy (not so much this one) reading horse related posts without this continual political vitriol that is posted everywhere just now.

    Not sure why my post got quoted for it either.

    This.

    Law enforcement personnel put their lives in danger daily EVERWHERE in the US. The danger is not just limited to the borders -- and by the way, there is drug activity and violence on the US/Canadian border too, it's just not as much of a volatile talking point.

    RIP Agent Ivie.

    Noone remembers the shootouts over the border while Baby Bush did nothing ... and then we put two of our own agents in jail for shooting a coke dealer that was resisting arrest??

    As this thread is only slightly horse-related, and has already gotten contentious for political reasons, we're closing it.

    Thanks,
