Dear President Bush:
Congressional inquiry after Congressional inquiry has raised questions about the prosecution of former border patrol agents Compean and Ramos. They should be pardoned or have their sentences commuted.
Agents Compean and Ramos were sentenced to 12 and 11 years in prison, respectively, for pursuing an illegal alien drug smuggler and shooting him in the buttocks.
Three jurors have since claimed that they were coerced into giving a "guilty" verdict.
The Federal government gave the illegal-alien drug smuggler immunity in exchange for his testimony against Compean and Ramos. Now he is suing the Federal government for $5 million because he says his civil rights were violated! It should also be noted that the drug smuggler was recently arrested for resuming it nefarious smuggling activities.
Meanwhile, two corrupt Border Patrol agents who were convicted of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes from Mexican smuggling gangs were sentenced to half the time (six years) that Compean and recent "Agent Of the Year" nominee Ramos were for doing their job.
Please pardon or commute the sentences of Border Patrol agents Ramos and Compean. These men have served more than enough time.
