    Ramos/Compean Hearings C-Span 7/17/07

    Moderators Please Move to Appropriate Thread If Needed

    Don't know how many of you are following the case of U.S. Border Patrol Agents Compean & Ramos who were railroaded into Prison for more than 12 years for shooting an Illegal Alien on the Mexican Border.

    Tuesday, 7/17/07 @ 10 am EST, C-Span will be broadcasting Live Congressional Hearings looking into the case.

    Just giving notice for any interested parties who may be interested.

    Stay Safe!

    Talk About Irony...

    Those who should be controling the borders are in jail...and those who SHOULD be in jail, are going to be looking into their case.

    Thanks for the heads-up...

    Thx Mike - just saw something about this released thru NRA.

    Ken - you got it right

    On balance I think this subject could sit in Homeland Security/Law Enforcement - will move it over.

    I have been following this case for some time. I have heard the prosecution attorney explain the facts of the case. I have heard the arguments from both sides.

    My opinion will be unpopular but these guys were involved with a bad shoot. They obstructed the scene and falsified evidence. They were convicted by a jury. They were not railroaded; they had their day in court and the evidence against them was sufficient to convince the jurors.

    That said, the sentence was harsh. However, as I understand it, it was the minimum sentence given the crimes they committed.

    True SD - I had about gotten those facts but - and I don't want the thread to go this route further ... if Libby can get Prez help for what was his std sentence for wrongs done, then these guys too should have some slack (IMO).

    The border guys are really up against it from so many directions, and sometimes it seems a no-win. We do need to get tough.

    I absolutely agree. The Border Patrol agents have a truly thankless job and the ROE are abysmal.

    Chris Simcox is a true hero and his Minuteman project should get more publicity nationwide.
