  • FBI Agents are NOT considered Peace Officers in the State of Texas and so had no
    authority to order the journalist to do anything, search his person, confiscate
    equipment or arrest/detain him because he was on Texas public property.  They
    did not have any legal authority over him.
    When agent Byers deprived the Journalist of his camera and phone, it constituted
    an unlawful taking.
    When agents Byers and Dominguez touched the Journalist without his consent, each
    committed assault.
    When agent Byers continued increase pressure on the Journalists arm his intention
    was to delibrately cause pain, suffering and perhaps injury to the Jouralist.
    Agent Byers words spoken while doing assaulting the Journalist are meaningless in
    face of his violating the Journalists constitutional rights and legal protections.
    When agents Byers and Dominguez handcuffed the Jouralist they deprived him of his
    freedom, illegally placing him in the custody of the Federal Government as they
    knew he was on Texas public property and that he had not violated any federal law
    which is the only law they have authroity to exercise in the State of Texas.
    Each FBI agent that participated, watched and stood by as Federal and Texas laws
    were violated are co-conspirators as defined by law.
    Full and heavy redress (fines, damages, termination of employment) from the
    Federal Government and each conspirator should be persued to the fullest
    extent of the law.  It is only through such redress that citizens of the United
    States can once again place trust in the United States Government to
    safegaurd the Constitutional rights of the people.

    As for the charge of disorderly conduct, the Journalist should seek dismissal.
    If the Judge will not dimiss, plead not guilty and proceed to trial asking for
    trial by jury if allowed for that charge.  Given the audio and visual evidence
    the defendant can produce, no prosecuting attorney would touch this case.  It is
    very doubtful that a jury of his peers would vote to find the journalist guilty
    given the egregious violations of his consitutional and legal rights.  Then there
    is the matter of who the complaintant is given that the El Paso police have no
    direct knowledge of the journalists conduct prior to their arrival.
