Let's Prosecute Drug Smugglers,
Not Border Patrol Agents

by Phyllis Schlafly - February 16th,2007 - Bend (Oregon) Weekly

The government prosecuted Ramos and Compean criminally for acts that called only for an administrative reprimand, based the case on the testimony of an admitted drug smuggler brought back from Mexico and induced to testify by a grant of immunity, withheld crucial evidence from the jury, used the wrong law (that carries a mandatory additional 10-year sentence), and now won't release the transcript of the trial without which the border guards cannot appeal.

As noted in the article, the prosecutor lied to the judge, lied to congress, lied to the press and lied to the American people. Nothing he has ever done will excuse the evil George W. Bush has perpetrated by his failure to protect these two men from an evil and outrageous prosecution.

If you note from the date, the article is nearly two years old. However the failure of George W. Bush to pardon these two men, Ramos and Compean, while he has pardoned a hip hop drug peddler who was convicted of smuggling millions of dollars worth of cocaine, brands Bush the most contemptible scum imaginable. No one with an ounce of integrity can ever again defend Bush. He is the greatest bigot of our generation.
