Our sources have informed us that the Merit Systems Protection Board has ordered the Department of Homeland Security to reinstate Border Patrol Agent David Sipe with full tenure and pay retroactive to April 21, 2001 as well as interest for that backpay.
Like agents Compean and Ramos, Agent Sipe had been prosecuted by U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton for shooting an illegal alien. The conviction was overturned when the judge discovered Sutton's office had engaged in illegal activities relating to the case including withholding evidence.
Even though Sipes was acquitted this past January after six years in prison, the Department of Homeland Security fought his reinstatement which resulted in the order.
CORRECTION: Sipe did not shoot an illegal alien. He whacked him over the head with his flashlight as I posted several months ago.
