Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler » Border Patrol Agents Sentenced to 11 and 12 Years in Prison

for doing their jobs (link thanks to LC & IB Sig94).

What do you do if your partner, engaged in pursuit, calls for backup? What do you do when the suspect flees on foot, shots are fired, you see your partner on the ground and notice the suspect turning around, holding what looks to be a firearm?

Whatever you do, don’t shoot at El Presidente Jorge Arbusto’s friends from South of the border.

Because if you do, you risk ending up behind bars for the next decade.

Jorge Arbusto and his Mexican Administration doesn’t like it when people try to enforce the law in our country, particularly when it results in criminals getting hurt, poor Mexicans smuggling the drugs that no Americans will smuggle.

Oh, and the drug smuggler resisting arrest while trying to smuggle 800 lbs of marijuana?

He was granted full immunity from the law in return for testifying against officers Ramos and Compean.

Please sign this petition, asking for a full pardon of Ramos and Compean.

Because if the Commander-with-spread-Cheeks keeps this up, we will soon have a lot of law enforcement jobs that no Americans will do.

I mean, under those circumstances, would you?

    “The U.S. government filed charges against Ramos and Compean after giving full immunity to Aldrete-Davila and paying for his medical treatment at an El Paso hospital.”

    The only treatment I would have offered his illegally entered, drug smuggling ass would have involved a seven iron, rope, and free delivery to the doorstep of his employers with a note letting them know they could expect more of the same if they keep bringing that trash into out country.

    These guys deserve a commendation, not prison time.

    Two professionals go to jail for doing their jobs…

    Yet our boy George W pardons a moonshiner and I’m betting there was no petition for him…

    Pardons for fraud, for reefer madness, for lying to the SBA, for stealing from a soldier and the federal government, for cocaine with intent to distribute, for tax evasion, for kickbacks and the list just marches on…

    Wow! I sure did vote for a loser but then again what were the other choices?

    NCLivingBrit Mentioned this before, realized later that I didn’t actually address it to you.

    I should still have a spare ChiCom issue chest bandolier for the SKS floating around the place somewheres. If you want it, just let me know…

    Yeah, just found it. It is designed to hold 180 rounds on stripper clips in nine pockets with a further large pocket at the end for oil bottle, cleaning kit, etc.

    Lemme know.

  28. MegaTroopX Comment by MegaTroopX UNITED STATES

    At this point, I would support Bush’s impeachment and trial for high crimes.

    Not over Iraq. No crimes there (unless you count the rules of endangerment). Treason, however is a crime, characterized as

    “…[a]…citizen’s actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation].”

    - Oran’s dictionary of the Law

    &

    levying war against the United States or “in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort,”

    - US Constitution, Article 3

    h/t Wiki

    The actions of Mexico are indicative of an ongoing hostile posture, if not an outright state of war. Bush’s actions fit both of the above statutes.

    Just signed it myself. I would have loved to add a “pithy” comment, but the RCOB* moment I was having was getting in the way.

    The best I could come up with was: “Is THIS, Mr. President, your idea of “homeland security?”

    …On second thought, that’s probably pithy enough…

    Just this week in my town we are mourning the shooting death of a 24-year old newlywed trooper who stopped two Mexican illegal ‘yutes, 17 and 19, on a routine ‘ no lights, no tags, no muffler’ traffic charge. The kids, who were only running pot up from TX to seek a Better Life in America, decided instead of getting out of their car, they’d shoot him and throw his body on the highway, in front of his running videocam(one blessing).

    Ya think you can put it on the front page, Sire? Here it is in all its glory:

    An Open Letter to All Border Patrol Agents
    Written by Doc Farmer
    Monday, January 01, 2007

    Dear Border Patrol Agents, Officers, and Employees,

    First of all, thank you for your service. Your dedication to this
    nation is impressive and humbling. You do a tough job without nearly enough
    support from the government, in either manpower or equipment. You catch
    illegal aliens and drug smugglers, only to see them back on the American
    streets weeks (or even days) later. While you no longer have the infamous
    “catch and release” program, there’s still no effective handling of the
    massive illegal alien problem by your employer–the United States
    government.

    However, that aside, you do your best with what you’ve got, and that’s
    all that Americans could ask of you.

    And yet, you’re getting a really raw deal right now.

    Some time back, two U.S. Border Patrol agents, Ignacio Ramos and Jose
    Compean, tried to catch a fleeing illegal alien at our border near El Paso,
    Texas. The guy was apparently a drug smuggler to boot. They fired their
    weapons at the vehicle after they noted that there was a gun in the illegal
    alien’s possession, but he got away. However, the illegal drug smuggler,
    one Osbaldo Aldrete-Davilla, didn’t get away unscathed. He ended up (pun
    intended) with a bullet in his backside. While hardly life threatening, I’m
    sure that the guy was fearful of brain damage.

    This happened back in February 2005. Aldrete-Davilla was caught again
    in December 2005, again illegally in our country, again smuggling drugs.

    Was he arrested? Nope. In fact, this illegal alien drug smuggling
    scumbag obtained immunity from prosecution by U.S. attorneys, in exchange
    for his testimony against the U.S. border agents who shot him in the correct
    execution of their duties.

    What’s worse, and what boggles my mind no end is that these two
    honorable men were arrested on the word of a known drug dealer and illegal
    alien, convicted, and sentenced to over a decade of incarceration in a
    federal prison. Their sentences were 12 years for Compean, 11 years for
    Ramos.

    Aldrete-Davilla, on the other hand, not only gets no prison time, he
    also gets the opportunity to sue the federal government for his breaking of
    our laws and the resulting hot lead spank in the posterior that he so
    rightfully received.

    That’s millions of our (and, by the way, your) tax dollars going to an
    illegal alien/drug dealing scumbag, while two men who swore to protect our
    borders, who went out on a daily basis to risk their lives so that we could
    be safe, are about to be sent to a federal penitentiary. A place where law
    enforcement officials who are now residents don’t fare very well,
    safety-wise.

    There have been many calls for the president to provide a pardon for
    these two gentlemen. Fifty-one congressmen signed a letter asking the
    president to intervene on their behalf. Well, George W. Bush did issue some
    pardons a short while back. However, he was apparently too busy pardoning
    convicted drug dealers to get around to pardoning two men who were wrongly
    prosecuted and persecuted for trying to stop a drug trafficker who was
    illegally in our country.

    Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean are scheduled to
    report to prison on January 17, 2006. Illegal Alien and Drug Smuggler
    Osbaldo Aldrete-Davilla is laughing all the way to the bank.

    If this isn’t a perversion of justice, I don’t know what is.

    There are nearly 30,000 border patrol agents, officers and employees
    currently out there, doing a very necessary but very hard job.

    Now I, as an American, am going to ask you to do something very, very
    hard.

    I’m asking all of you, on January 17, 2006, to quit your jobs.

    No two-weeks notice, no nice words. Just 30,000 letters of
    resignation, handed in all at the same time. Something to the tune of —

    —————————–
    Dear President Bush,

    Due to the incarceration of two of my colleagues in the Border Patrol,
    Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, I no longer believe that I can perform my
    lawful duties without fear of prosecution by your own federal attorneys and
    federal judges. Therefore, I hereby resign my position in the United States
    Border Patrol, effective immediately.

    Yours respectfully
    —————————–

    Turn in your guns, badges, vehicles, keys, uniforms, and any other
    U.S. government property with your letter, so you don’t get wrongly accused
    of stealing and end up in the slammer for that.

    I am not talking about a PATCO-type strike. I am seriously and
    honestly asking you to lay down tools and walk away. Permanently. You
    won’t be breaking any anti-strike laws by doing that. You’ll just be
    exercising your right as a free individual to end your employment. If
    you’ve got a contract with the government people, break it. They could try
    to sue, but I doubt they’re going to flood their already overloaded courts
    with suits they’ll never collect a penny from. And if they try to force you
    back to work, may I suggest you invite a couple of Minutemen over to your
    house? Since Janet Reno’s no longer in a position of power, I doubt very
    much that there’ll be any early morning closet raids in any event.

    Now, why should you give up your jobs? It’s an honest question.
    Here’s a brutally honest answer. Because paid or not, you’ll never be able
    to do your job properly. Your own employer is royally boning two of your
    fellow colleagues, and if you remain in the Border Patrol, you’re in the
    same position (bent over, ankles gripped firmly in hands).

    The President of the United States, the chief law enforcement officer
    of the nation, is unwilling to override this travesty of justice. This
    should worry you. I know it worries me!

    Dubya doesn’t even talk a good game anymore when it comes to border
    protection. Sure, he has nominally expanded your ranks. However, he’s also
    put into place a system that emasculates your ability to enforce the laws
    that are already on the books. The U.S. prosecutor and the federal judge
    who presided over this charade are both Bush appointees.

    I support George W. Bush on the War on Terrorism. In other areas, I
    also find him to be a good president. However, he’s dead wrong on the
    idiotic non-protection protection of our nation’s boundaries. Protecting
    our borders is a necessary element in the War on Terrorism. Why Dubya
    doesn’t see that is frankly beyond my ken.

    Unemployment rates right now are at historical lows. That means that
    you’ve got an excellent chance of finding new jobs quickly. There are a lot
    of communities in the country who would gladly pay top dollar for your
    training, your expertise, and your dedication to service. Without putting
    you in the position of threatening you with imprisonment for actually doing
    your job.

    Now, those of you who stay on (because I’m certain that some always
    do) should remember one very important thing. You may continue to draw a
    paycheck. However, you’ll always be at risk of prosecution from your own
    employer, for the simple act of doing the job you swore an oath to do.
    Think about that. You can keep a job where you have to violate an oath, a
    promise before God, to protect American citizens.

    Could you really sleep at night, knowing that?

    I couldn’t.

    I suspect that a lot of people who live near the border wouldn’t sleep
    too well either, knowing that you weren’t able to do your job to the best of
    your ability.

    Moreover, I don’t think you could either. Because you took this job
    not to protect politicians or protect corruption, but to protect America.
    If you are not permitted to do that, if you’re under threat of imprisonment
    by your own boss for doing your job, well, I’d say you’re already in the
    wrong job.

    Time to find a new one.

  33. MegaTroopX Comment by MegaTroopX UNITED STATES

    That was excellent Yochanon.

    It strikes me that the attitude of Mexicans here mirrors that of Muslims in Europe. In the words of one of the top 10 cinematic villains of all time:

    “Your culture will adapt to service us.”

    Further, the attitude of the actual citizens seems to have a high degree of mirroring, as well.

    “Whatever you say, boss!”

    Let the impeachment of Doubla-vey begin.

  34. LC RobertHuntingdon Comment by LC RobertHuntingdon

    Best part of Yochanon’s idea is that if they actually do this they are resigning on pretty good terms. If by some miracle something like were to either A) wake up America or B) wake up Bush and either or both decided to take action of a useful sort they might be able to get their jobs back pretty quickly to boot.

    I like the idea boss, give it some front-page billing and spread the word!

    Ramos y Compean, si? That is just special! Here we have a couple of people with Spanish surnames who are here legally (probably born here), who are defending our country, and who get treated like shit - while an asshat drug dealer gets the VIP treatment. WTF? Well, they can’t slap Ramos and Compean with “hate” crimes, at least. Who knows how many more years that would add?

    I am only wondering if there is more to the story than is presented here, because this makes NO sense at all! Why would you arrest someone for doing his job? Even if they failed to follow a particular protocol, the most they should get is a reprimand. After all, they were attempting to stop a drug dealer. Is it remotely possible that there is missing information about the border guards and that they may have been engaging in some illegal activity themselves? I am not trying to impugn anyone’s character, but this really doesn’t add up!

    Ramos y Compean, si? That is just special! Here we have a couple of people with Spanish surnames who are here legally (probably born here), who are defending our country, and who get treated like shit -

    Which, of course, in spite of extensive coverage and unwavering support of the two on this site and other conservative sites, won’t keep Moonbat Mutt-Munchers from accusing conservatives of being “racist” because we oppose ILLEGAL immigration.

    But then again, what would one expect from lifeforms that are barely sentient?
