There have been studies done about this and articles written. Right now I can’t remember what any of them said, but in my opinion the most dangerous job in the U.S. is Border Patrol Agent.

According to this article in the Arizona Daily Star, Records show agents fired beanbags in fatal border gunfight. Border agents are instructed to use non-lethal force when confronting illegal aliens with guns.

Border Patrol officials declined to answer questions about protocol for use of force, citing the ongoing investigation.

But Terry’s brother, Kent Terry, said the other agents who were there that night told him that they were instructed to use the non-lethal beanbags first. It’s a policy that doesn’t make sense to Kent Terry.

It doesn’t make sense to me either, if an NYPD officer sees a person pointing a gun at anyone, and the person won’t put the gun down, they are going to get shot. Usually about a billion times (I don’t have a problem with that, if you’re that stupid, kind of like kicking a police dog, if you’re that stupid, you deserve to have your leg bitten off). The article goes on to mention that the bullet removed from the agent is the kind used in AK-47’s. So you have the bad guys, with AK-47, and the good guys are shooting bean bags at them. To me, being a Border Patrol Agent should be listed as THE MOST DANGEROUS JOB.
