Ramos-Compean Convictions
Affirmed By Court Of Appeals

by Jerome R. Corsi - July 28th, 2008 - World Net Daily

"It was never the intent of the Congress to have U.S.C. Section 924(c) apply to law enforcement officers," he said.

The appellate court reversed and vacated only the convictions for obstruction of justice under Section 1512(c), ruling "the Border Patrol investigation was not an 'official proceeding' within the meaning of the statute."

Let's see how many things our corrupt court system did to screw these two men. The court took the word of a drug smuggler who, violating his own promise kept smuggling drugs after provided with a green card and immunity by the prosecutor. Ramos and Compean told their supervisor at the site that they had fired their guns and he said to leave that out of their report, which is why they were charged with a crime. The court would not allow either of these known facts to be provided to the jury, which was as usual, kept ignorant of many facts. Now the appeals court says that they can't overturn the conviction because the jury, in a fair trial, found them guilty.

I do not believe anyone can say with any integrity that this was a fair trial. Why hasn't the President given them a pardon? No one who cares about justice can figure out what this President thinks about anything.
