Police Officers are the modern day embodiment of medieval knights, going to work each day with a noble cause to protect and serve society. This quest is not limited to the cities and towns of this Nation. Providing the primary perimeter of law enforcement in America are the men and women of the United States Border Patrol. In an environment as physically and mentally challenging as the border region, sometimes, a sense of humor is the only defense mechanism in an agent's tool box. One of the primary coping mechanisms utilized in law enforcement is humor. A cop can find something funny about almost anything, regardless of how tragic the circumstances, and Border Patrol Agents are no different. Dark humor involves making light of a serious, disturbing or taboo subject matter. It is sometimes viewed as morbid, cruel, offensive, and graphic in nature and is yet, still found funny. The author served twenty years with the NYC Transit Police Department and NYPD, but this is not a NYC police tale. This is the story of the author's two years as a United States Border Patrol Agent as he worked with some of the darkest knights in the USA - the agents who protect the sovereignty of our Nation under the most difficult circumstances.
