President Bush finally commuted the sentences of Ramos and Campeon. While I think they made an error in judgement in trying to cover up the shooting, I think the time the got and served was too severe. I wouldn’t want to be a border patrol agent, especially with the limitations they have and the lack of support they have from the federal government. Their trial was a kangaroo court as well. Had they not tried to cover up the shooting and just reported it, they wouldn’t be were they are now. All I can hope for is that they get their lives back and have some normalcy.

The Mexican Army, the Border Patrol and Idiots that bring knives to gun fights

with 2 comments

I am late with this, but what the heck. Normally I have complaints, sometimes solutions, this time a little of both. Sunday, August 3rd, a US Border Patrol agent was held at gunpoint by Mexican soldiers on our side of the border. As outrageous as this sounds, it’s happened over 40 times in the last year. The conventional wisdom out there says that the Mexican Army is working for drug lords and do these stunts to draw US Border Patrol Agents away from areas that smugglers are trafficking across the border. This is outrageous. One, we need to make the Mexican government understand from now on, we will defend our Border Patrol agents without regard to Mexico’s sovereignty. If they do that stuff, we will chase them, and hunt them down like the dogs they are. We should also make it understood that we will terminate them, with extreme prejudice, if they train guns on our Border Patrol agents, particularly on our soil. They need to understand it will not end well for them. On our side, Border Patrol agents need to be armed better, trained better, and supported fully by their government. Where are the Texas Rangers when you need them?
