... says patrol chief. She should know, she was a member.
When it emerged that border patrol agents were posting racist, sexist and abusive content on a secret Facebook group, the chief of the agency did the right thing and condemned the behavior.
In a statement this week, Carla Provost the first woman appointed to the post said: "These posts are completely inappropriate and contrary to the honor and integrity I see and expect from our agents day in and day out. Any employees found to have violated our standards of conduct will be held accountable."
Provost forgot to provide one minor detail however: she was also reportedly a member of the group, originally named "I'm 10-15," referring to police code for "prisoner in custody," and she had posted to it.
