Compean and Ramos update

I just heard an interview with an angry, frustrated Ted Poe, a Texas congressman who has been instrumental in the futile fight to get justice for Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos.

On the John and Ken Show, Poe said that the members of Congress who have been trying to get action have received one letter in reply, a short message from a low-level functionary in the "Justice" Department who says they will not be taking any action in this case.

They took plenty of action to railroad the two Border Patrol agents, though....

Since taking office, George Bush has pardoned 113 criminals, including five convicted of drug-related crimes. Apparently, the only people to whom he won't grant pardons are those who committed no crime.

Meanwhile, Bush's mouthpiece, the pompous Tony Snow, makes a joke out of the issue on each (rare) occasion it comes up in press conferences.

One has to wonder why the media, which takes such glee in blaming Bush for everything from the pitiful mess in Iraq to the bird flu, is remaining silent about Compean and Ramos. Equally silent are the big guns in Congress; apparently, Pelosi, Kennedy, Clinton, Kennedy, Obama and the rest of the "new deal" crowd can't be bothered. Neither can the Republican hotshots.

Illegals can take to the streets and demand "rights," and they are coddled by the unprincipled goons in Washington. Perhaps it is time for real American citizens and legal residents to take to the streets and demand our rights.

But first, we need to demand that the rights of two men who were trying to enforce the laws and protect their country are observed and protected.

Remember: you could be next.

Yet another update: The judge in the Compean-Ramos lynching -- clearly, she has been corrupted by Bush and his despicable gang as well -- has just denied the two agents' request to remain free on bail while their appeals continue.

This is so unfair and I think the real 'criminals' are Bush and his gang.

Respect the rights of minorities, OF COURSE. But what about MAJORITY rights? I agree completely, Scribbs.

l&s -- I can't help but notice that the Mexican-American support groups, which are so quick to react to every imagined slight, are silent about this. Compean and Ramos are of Hispanic heritage, but I guess the fact that they are citizens makes them unworthy of attention from the marchers and slogan-shouters.

I am apalled at the way modern prosecutors who know damn well their victims don't deserve it, think nothing of stripping them of their freedom and their rights. The cold self serving cruelty is beyond my comprehension. I couldn't even treat the guilty like that, especially if they did not savagely harm an innocent person.

This is another case of bi-partisan policy in action. What an incredible outrage.
Any more word from the media on this? What his name said he'd keep on it, has he? The guy from CNN, I think.

There's more outrage over the saddam hanging, which should have been their affair not ours.

MrScribbler said...

Lou Dobbs, HarpO? Yeah, I hear he's still on it, but the corruption in this case goes so deep that it will take more than one cable-news channel, some radio talk shows and 25,000 citizens to get results.

It may take impeachment and a few recall elections.

MrScribbler said...

Make that 250,000 citizens.

I don't understand this at all. I heard an interview with a Senator..not sure who..but he said that Bush has to intervene...I doubt he will though. It doesn't make sense!

KauaiFinn said...

They didn't make bail??
I'm very confused with this case.
Then again, what else is new... Anything involving the Hierarchy has got me scratching my head.

How are you doing, Scribbler?

**hugs** and aloooHa!
