In early August, I wrote about the outrageous “Justice” Department prosecution of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean, two Border Patrol officers for doing their jobs.
They were chasing an illegal alien drug smuggler. Another drug smuggler he was with bloodied and beat one of the agents down to the ground. The smuggler turned on the other agent, and the agent shot at him in response. For this, these agents, military veterans with families, will do over a decade in federal prison. Even more incredible is that the USDOJ (rather, USDONONJ) went to Mexico and gave the drug dealer immunity to cooperate with them against the two Border Patrol agents.
In an incredible outrage, today, Federal Judge Kathleen Cardone–a George Walker Bush (ie., the current resident of the White House) appointee–sentenced Ramos to 11 years and a day, and Compean to 12 years in prison.
More details on their story here. Read it all. It will break your heart. And make you wonder whose side President Bush and his administration are on.
That they were prosecuted–with the full support of Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez–is bad enough. That they were convicted is even worse. But most outrageous is their absurd sentencing, today. It’s an outrage that Lynne Stewart helped a top Al-Qaeda cleric perpetrate jihadist murders worldwide, and yet these two Americans protecting our border will do geometric multiples of the 28 months she got.
