I know zilch about FBI hiring and retention policies, but it’s hard to imagine they’d keep him on, after showing such monumental bad judgement on so many levels.
I suspect the FBI top brass may feel they have to make an example of someone to show they still have high moral and ethical standards. This could be the guy.

Yep. After the Comey/McCabe/Page-and-Strok fiasco, with the Bureau itching to ‘redeem’ itself in the eyes of the public... and considering how much nationwide publicity this has generated... and the likelihood that he’ll be charged— surely you or I would be, if we’d done that— or that the person he shot will file a civil suit... they’ll have no choice but to come down hard on this guy.

Besides, it was a lousy backflip....

I’m sure Ace or I could do a lot better... if we were the flamboyant show-off types, which we’re not....

Is it similar to catching a falling knife?

Somewhat. The difference being, that falling knife can’t cut someone standing across the room....

Maybe better his shoes than that guy on video at The firing line forum. Strong argument against appendix carry.

The Tony Hillerman mysteries suggested that assignment to the Navajo Reservation was not a prime career assignment with the FBI?

They don't actually get assigned to a rez. They just get posted to an office that has one or more such areas in their area of responsibility. These are generally not stepping stones to rapid (or any) advancement within the organization. Once there the SAIC (who may or may not have received "hints" from above, makes sure the newbie gets the rez cases, plus probably the interstate movement of stolen motor vehicle cases.

This is assuming that he doesn't get career advice about how a resignation is much less negative on the resume' than a firing.

Looking on the bright side: there’d be plenty of empty space out there, to practice his backflip... and fewer bystanders in danger when he picks up his pistol afterwards...

All this sport at the FBI's expense is rude. After all, they'll bend over backwards for you.

His mission to surreptitiously infiltrate that city's club scene ended with a bang.

I see where the off duty agent has been charged with second degree assault. Additional charges may be filed.
