Border Agent Charged With Hitting Migrant With Truck Called Them 'Subhuman,' Feds Say


Matthew Bowen’s defense attorney claims his racist tirades are OK because they are ‘part of the agency’s culture.’

On Nov. 20, 2017, Border Patrol agent Matthew Bowen rage-texted his colleague about their professional inability to stop migrants: “Mindless murdering savages. PLEASE let us take the gloves off trump!”

“Disgusting subhuman shit unworthy of being kindling for a fire,” the 39-year-old Arizona agent said in another text to a colleague who at the time was facing criminal charges for allegedly shooting an unarmed Mexican teenager through a fence.

Two weeks later, Bowen allegedly hit a Guatemalan man accused of illegally entering country with a government truck and then lied about it in a report, according to a court document filed last month in U.S. District Court in Arizona. The filing was first revealed Sunday by the Arizona Daily Star.

Federal prosecutors alleged that the text messages demonstrate Bowen’s history of racial tirades and “great disdain” for the migrants he is responsible for apprehending and asked permission to use the messages in the agent’s August trial.

1. When the Nazis described Jews as Untermenschen, or subhumans

They didn't mean they were like subhumans. They meant they were literally subhuman.

2. FIRE THE BASTARD AND IMPRISON THE LIL BITCH

This person is pure crazy and should not have a badge nor gun. This person will kill because he is insane. It is time to eliminate him from the herd. Imprisonment with his kind is best for this savage.
