And Now to Kick the Other Side in the Groin....

Bush COMMUTED Ramos and Compean's Prison sentences today and they get out March 20th...

I was so excited - it renewed my faith in The Texan President....then I read this....

This is from CNN:

"Commuting their sentences does not diminish the seriousness of their crimes. Ramos and Compean are convicted felons who violated their oaths to uphold the law and have been severely punished," the official stated.

"This commutation gives them an opportunity to return to their families and communities, but both men will have to carry the burden of being convicted felons and the shame of violating their oaths for the rest of their lives."

The above is a direct quote from the Official Commutation....What a huge CROCK....

Their oath was to protect the United States of America - Her Citizens and Her Borders....I for one feel they did their job by shooting AN ILLEGAL ALIEN DRUG DEALER IN THE ARSE!

They shouldnt have been given Prison - they should have been given a MEDAL!

Mr. President, I find it a little pathetic that they received a Commutation and not an outright Pardon. These men were thrown to the wolves, namely your buds in Texas and to add insult to injury, they will be FELONS for the rest of their lives. Hey, by the way, how is Scooter Libby doing?

But I am sure all that pales in light of them going home to their families on March 20th.... 2 Months.... I guess....but its not me that gets to Forgive and/or Forget - its Ramos and Compean....

And on March 20th, reunited with their families, I am sure it wont be that hard...

Congrats MEN - and THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

I noted that also. Not sure exactly how I feel about it (they got railroaded for sure but they were far from innocent) but I am glad they are going to be out of prison soon.

A commutation rather than a pardon, indeed! More than ever I am happy to be retired from the feds and the reserves. A line of Steven Seagal from "Under Siege" seems most appropriate here: "You and me, we're puppets in the same sick game. We serve the same master, and he's a lunatic and he's ungrateful." With this action, GW has cornered the market on shame!

I have to agree as well... Especially when you look at who and how many FULL PARDONS were given at the end of the second Clinton term. He pardoned 396 people in 8 years, and these two can't even get pardoned for doing their jobs! Geeze.

I ain't surprised... Bushie has something for Mexicans.... At least they're going home, and most likely they'll wind up on the talk show circuit, and writing books. I think they'll be ok....

Ramon said...

As far as I can see, the only mistake they made was in the accuracy of their shots. Anything that needs to be shot should be shot twice, or better yet three times.

I agree with you all...

Ramon - I especially think they missed their mark in their shot. If they had better aim, he would not have been able to testify and perjure himself...

If you are ever in a self defense situation, and you shoot someone in the butt, you will go to jail too. A person fleeing is not a threat. Cops are not, and should not be, allowed to shoot someone to prevent escape.
