G-Man Now Heads Border Patrol


Brian Bennett of the Los Angeles Times reports that a senior FBI official has been named chief of the U.S. Border Patrol in an effort to curb abuses, investigate corruption and improve discipline within the 21,000-member force. Mark Morgan, who heads the FBI training division, is the first outsider to lead the Border Patrol in its 92-year history. He inherits a force under fire for ignoring or downplaying shootings of unarmed people and other abuses by agents, and of doing too little to stem corruption by drug cartels, smugglers and other criminals.
