Sign The Petition To Save Border Patrol Agents Ramos And Compean - Stop This Injustice

Bookmark and Share

Two Border Patrol Agents have been found guilty of numerous charges as if they were criminals for attempting to apprehend a criminal drug smuggler at the Mexican border. Here's a little background on what happened.

San Bernardino County Sun

Ramos, 37, and Compean, 28, were convicted of assault with serious bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon, discharge of a firearm in relation to a crime of violence and a civil-rights violation. Aldrete-Davila, the Mexican the agents were pursuing, was in possession of more than $1 million worth of marijuana, which he had brought into the United States through the small town of Fabens, Texas.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Kanof, who successfully prosecuted both men, argued during the trial that it was not the agents' job to pursue Davila in the first place.

They face a minimum mandatory sentence of 10 years with a recommendation of 20 years.

They ended up wounding this criminal in the chase after he turned on one of the agents with what looked like a gun and he was fired upon and hit in the rear end. After he escaped to Mexico a US Department of Homeland Security Investigator hunted down this criminal, not to arrest him, but to give him immunity if he testified against the Border Patrol Agents that shot him.

Can you believe that? It was never discovered if what was brandished at the agents was indeed a gun, but it is quite possible in my opinion. The fact that these two were doing their jobs and trying to stop drug smuggling and then being convicted on criminal charges for doing their jobs is a travesty and every American should be outraged.

On top of this the criminal, Aldrete-Davila, is now suing the US for $5 million dollars for violating his civil rights. His civil rights to smuggle drugs.

What kind of message are we sending to law enforcement? That if you try to do your job you could potentially be put away in jail for a long time? Where do I sign up!

Here's what you can do to help. Grassfire.org has set up a petition that is being sent to Congress urging President Bush to pardon these two of their convictions. They're trying to receive 100,000 signatures before they send it on. They currently have over 63,000 as of this writing.

The petition is here. Go sign it now and please forward this information and petition on to all that you know.

The United states of America has gone insane. When we prosecute border patrol agents for doing their job and actively trying to halt drug smugglers, we need to rewrite our laws and come to our senses.

These two agents should be freed and rewarded for their dillegence rather that being prosecuited for effectively doing their jobs of preventing illegal immigrants from entering the country and also preventing the illegal importation of drugs.

The American law enforcement entities that are responsible for this travisty of prosecuiting these border patrol agents, while granting immunity to a drug smuggler, should be removed from office, have their citizenships revoked and deported to the corrupt country that they chose to support.

Please stop protecting criminals and start sentencing the frivilous lawsuits with fines or time for "stupidity" and for taking up the time of our valuable justice system.

So the mexican man had marijuana and and was shot in the backside for running away? Then the two policemen Ramos and Compean were arrested. That aint cool. Let the border patrol out or at least lower the jail sentence!

Iam appalled that Mexican drug smugglers have "rights" in our country and those that try to stop them are persecuted. Why is it that our Government refuses to do anything about our leaky border? Get ready to bear arms because we will soon be attacked from within! Believe me, open borders from Mexico to Canada is on the table!!!

What a shame!!, our country turns it's back on it's officers who were only doing what was expected of them. Mr. Present, have you no integerty at all!! Get these men the hell out of this situation!!!

I say all police agents, border patrol agents and military should walk off their jobs! Our government has turned on them! They deserve better. All Atty. Sutton has done is waste space in Texas!! I don't see him putting his life on the line daily!!

Support these poor men and oust the government idiots like Sutton!!!

Ahhh Yes, Another fine example of the stupidity in government. The drug smuggler has "rights" (?) and the enforcement officer go to jail? Sounds like Atty Sutton is lacking in both professional and personal ethics, plus just forgetting what side he is on. Maybe Sutton and his ilk have some vested interest in the drugs or kickbacks. where the hell is the drive-by media on this extreme miscarriage of justice?
