Border Patrol Agent Caught Watching Porn at Work, Blames Internet Filter For Not Stopping Him

Spread the love

The latest drama within the Customs and Border Protection (CBP), a sector of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), surprisingly has nothing to do with surveying the United States border and everything to do with surveying the internet within the office. The latest news released from the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General says that a CBP employee was caught browsing pornographic materials on government computers.

While the simple act of viewing pornography on an employer’s computer seems ludicrous, the condemned agent’s defense for his actions is even more absurd. The employee’s identification was not released to protect his privacy, but this employee claimed that the issue at hand is partially the fault of the CBP’s due to their lack of “adequate web filters.” That’s right, the employee claimed that the internet filters should have saved him from his own pornographic problem.

What’s more is that the employee viewed pornography over a long span of time while working at the CBP  and took numerous actions to sidestep the internet filters, including using the Bing search bar instead of the Google one, which apparently allows more access to erotic online material.

Information accessed through a FOIA request reveal that the unnamed agent tried to access porn 644 times in just a two-day span in the office. This displays an extreme sense of boredom and persistence on the end of the agent; but luckily, the filters denied him access 467 of the  times, so only 167 times in those two days did he successfully access his desired porn sites.

As the Office of Inspector General continued to investigate the matter, they uncovered a variety of shocking terms and phrases in the search history. However, it is not clear what the reprimands have been for this particular agent.

In any event, please rest assured that the American borders are safe and secure with this agent at the helm.
