Had to repost thanks to ill-informed jerks with political agendas. Back to permission only comments, I guess... sigh. I reposted with Velvet's comment in the text.


I was going to post something funny today but heard that Ramos and Compean are headed to jail today. 2000 miles from home. So sad.

If you don't know these two names, you should. These men are heroes and our president has made sure they will have no justice. They are border patrol agents and got into a scuffle with an illegal alien drug smuggler. in the chaos, (forgive me, the story is actually so old, I forget who did the shooting!) one of the agents saw his partner on the ground and fired his weapon. The illegal alien drug smuggler was shot in the butt. He lived. And he talked... a lot.

Basically, our government prosecuted these two men for DOING THEIR JOBS. And now, these men, with families, and lives and mortgages, have no job, no income and are headed to jail for more than a decade! The whole prosecution stinks. It's clearly coming from the White House.

And the really frightening part: now that we know law enforcement officers can be punished with prison time for doing the job they were hired to do, what motivation do any of them have to uphold the law??

To read more, Agent Ramos' family has a blog.

This situation is SO twisted. This may be the first administration where the exceptions outnumber the rules.

I'm not even sure why the "higher ups" got involved. Then the president?

This is bizarre. I can't find a reason why it played out the way it did.

Oh - too bad you had some rude visitors. It is so sad when that happens in the blogging community.

Sunflower, That is the bizarre thing if you really dig into this. There was no punishment for quite some time, meaning the superiors thoguht these guys were doing their jobs. It wasn't until Washington got involved that the agents were punished. And the (Bush appointed) judge sending them to jail even though they are appealing.... Unbeliveable!

Yes I hate rude people. And the same jerk has tried twice more to post since I moderated things again... Get a life, dude!
