“Some of the Haitian men started running, trying to go around the horses,” Ratje said of what he witnessed.
- “I didn’t ever see him whip anybody with the thing,” he added about an agent in the photos. “He was swinging it, but I didn’t see him actually take, you know, whip someone with it. That’s something that can easily be misconstrued when you’re looking at a picture.”
- This fact was corroborated by two photos of the scene taken from two different angles. “Let me help you be more accurate,” Breitbart journalist Brandon Darby tweeted Tuesday.
- “First photo appears to show Border Patrol using ‘whip-like cord’ on migrant. Second photo of same event shows it’s just the horse reins slinging around and agent is not whipping migrant,” Darby explained.
