A House panel Tuesday tried to determine whether the Mexican government had played any role in the politically explosive prosecution to two U.S. Border Patrol agents but was not able to reach any conclusions due to the absence of Justice Department and Homeland Security officials from the hearing.

Over the years, I've noticed a schism develop between many law enforcement people and ordinary "civilians" – you know, the poor schlemiels who pay their taxes, empower the high mighty and employ the cops.

This division takes many shapes and forms, but nowhere is it more obvious than on the issue of firearms.

Many police officers have come to believe guns are only safe in their hands – that they cannot be entrusted into the custody of untrained, unqualified citizens.

Obviously, this is a non-starter from a constitutional, freedom-oriented perspective. But there's a practical new reason for cops to begin rethinking where this anti-gun hysteria is leading our country. Read more

Documented proof the smuggler was given all access pass to the USA during the trail and fingered for bringing in another load of drugs in the same time period. And Johnny Sutton hid the information and kept using the smuggler against the agents in court and ultimately convicting them of a bogus charge, and now they are serving a 10 year mandatory bid.

Hey, all,
Laura Ingram is out on vacation, and Edd Hendee of KSEV from Houston was filling in for Laura today.
It was one of the best shows I have heard in a long time.
Here is one clip, including interviews with congressman Dana Rohrabacher of CA, and his communications director / spokeswoman, Tara Setmeyer. Tara was the one who went with Tom Tancredo to visit agent Ramos, after he was beaten in prison.
Rohrabacher's staff managed to get their hands on some new documents yesterday afternoon. This is the FIRST show to talk about these documents.
There are other short interviews included, too, like two jurors from the Ramos - Compean case.
There is also a funny, yet maddening segment: Rohrabacher tells Edd, that they asked for US Government documents related to the handling of the case from Sutton's office.
The reply was they can only get them, if they secure a RELEASE FROM THE DRUG SMUGGLER, DAVILA, given that there details in the documents pertaining to HIS PRIVACY!

Feinsteins letter to Bush

Finally, even U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton has conceded that concerns about the fairness of the sentence are legitimate.

Given these facts, we believe clemency is warranted for Agents Ramos and Compean. Agents Ramos and Compean have now been in prison for more than six months. Agent Ramos has been physically assaulted while serving his term and the Agents’ request to remain out of prison while their appeal was pending was denied by the Fifth Circuit. Both agents will remain incarcerated for many more months, even if their conviction is ultimately thrown out – unless action is taken quickly.

Lawmaker Announces Plan to Block Use of Funds for Continued Incarceration of Border Agents

(WASHINGTON, DC) – US Rep.

WND has reported Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein will preside over a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing examining the prosecution of former Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. Read More

The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday at 10 a.m.




There is a nationwide movement of patriotic Americans calling on President Bush for the immediate release and pardon of two Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. Ramos and Compean were falsely convicted and incarcerated for 11 and 12 years for attempting to apprehend a drug smuggler bringing 700 pounds of marijuana into the US. Instead of being convicted of drug trafficking and assault against a US law enforcement officer, the multiple offense drug dealer (illegal alien) received immunity from Johnny Sutton and is now suing the US for 5 MILLION DOLLARS. Read the most accurate account of this story here:

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing to examine the prosecution of Ramos & Compean that will take place NEXT TUESDAY July 17 at 10:00 AM in Washington DC.

Dear Senator,

I am a (your state) legal resident who finds the convictions of Border Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean to be one of the most outrageous miscarriages of justice I have ever witnessed. As you conduct next Tuesday’s hearing to examine the malicious prosecution of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, keep in mind that I am among hundreds of thousands of Americans expecting you and the other 18 Senators on the Committee to rectify this gross miscarriage of justice. I, like many Americans, demand the immediate release and pardon of Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, and I thank you in advance for your diligent and expedient pursuit to this end.

Bush commutes Libbys sentence

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- July 3
Supporters of former border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean are asking for the same compassion. Ramos and Compean are also convicted felons. Their careers also over. They are serving sentences of 11 and 12 years for not following protocol and shooting a fleeing illegal alien drug smuggler in the buttocks.
Duncan Hunter: Clearly if Scooter Libby deserves a commutation, I would hope that the White House on this July 4th, tomorrow, would fully pardon Compean and Ramos. Ramos has already been beaten up in prison by some of the inmates who recognized him as a border patrol agent. I think they have been punished enough.
