    Ramos and Compean remain in jail, “The good guys lost this round”
    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, issuing its opinion in the case of Border Patrol agents Ignacio “Nacho” Ramos and Jose Compean, has affirmed all convictions except those for tampering with an official proceeding. The agents were convicted of charges arising from the shooting of an unarmed drug smuggler. Their sentences were increased because they were found guilty of committing a crime with a firearm.

    Judge E. Grady Jolly noted, “For the most part, the trial of this case was about credibility, and although the jury could have gone either way, it chose not to believe the defendants’ version of the crucial events of February 17, 2005."

    But Congressman Dana Rohrabacher quipped “The court has sided with the prosecutors who threw the book at the good guys, and the good guys have lost this round.” Republican lawmakers, conservative media personalities and critics of illegal immigration see the case as that of agents acting in self-defense against a dangerous drug smuggler who had illegally entered the U.S.

    Ramos and Compean have been in prison 560 days, in solitary confinement. They still can appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. If that fails, President Bush is the only person who could shorten their sentences. The president has shown little interest in the case. <br><br><br>There you have it.
    We need to mount up and
    storm the White House demanding the President right this wrong.

    You have to understand the drug trade is crucial to the economic good health of a large segment of our society.

    NO, NOt the dealers.

    The Lawyers, the judges, the DEA, the prison wardens, correction officers, food service companies, clothing suppliers, and myriad other contractors.

    All paid for by YOU!!! Reducing that impact on our society would deprive many of a goodly part of their income.

    These 2 misguided individuals mistakenly took the rule book to mean what it said.

    Obviously they weren't taken into the back room for "the talk".

    Clinton's boys were. They played the game. They even helped out with a hooker or 2 when the need arose.

    These 2 officers are rotting in prison for not recognizing the unwritten rules that exist today.

    After all, if they REEALLLY didn't want drugs in the US It would be a simple matter.

    60 years of Iron curtain shows it can be done.

    Black is White.

    War is Peace.

    Love is Hate.

    Big Brother loves you.

    Yup fearlessfain, That did it for me too. I was going to write a book titled. "how to get away with murder" about 300 pages long after he got off. As you went through the pages all you would see were $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ signs. Never did write it. The whole world knows OJ was guilty but he went free anyway.
