Scared Monkeys Radio Daily Commentary – Tuesday, January 20, 2009 – President Bush Commutes Sentences on Border Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean
January 20th, 2009 Daily Commentary, News of the Day, Podcasts

FINALLY!!! We would have preferred it to be a full pardon; however, President George W. Bush has commuted the sentences of Border agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. The agents were convicted in 2006 of shooting and wounding an unarmed illegal immigrant, as per CNN,  suspected of drug smuggling at the time and then covering it up. No, they shot an admitted drug smuggler Osvaldo Aldrete Davila “in the buttocks”.  What a sad state of affairs when we have US prosecutors more concerned with illegal drug smugglers rights, than that of our border patrol.

Dana Pretzer of Scared Monkeys radio has previously interviewed Steve Elliot, the President of who have been instrumental in the petition effort to get justice for Ramos and Compean.

It’s about time lame duck GWB did the right thing and ended Compean and Romos’ nightmare.


In his final acts of clemency, President George W. Bush on Monday commuted the prison sentences of two former U.S. Border Patrol agents whose convictions for shooting a Mexican drug dealer ignited fierce debate about illegal immigration.
Bush’s decision to commute the sentences of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, who tried to cover up the shooting, was welcomed by both Republican and Democratic members of Congress. They had long argued that the agents were merely doing their jobs, defending the American border against criminals. They also maintained that the more than 10-year prison sentences the pair was given were too harsh.

Rancor over their convictions, sentencing and firings has simmered ever since the shooting occurred in 2005.

Ramos and Compean became a rallying point among conservatives and on talk shows where their supporters called them heroes. Nearly the entire bipartisan congressional delegation from Texas and other lawmakers from both sides of the political aisle pleaded with Bush to grant them clemency.

Ramos had received an 11 year prison sentence while Compean had received a 12 year term. All this for shooting an illegal alien drug smuggler. Unbelievable. Being convicted for doing one’s job … protecting America from illegal drug dealing scum. Not only should they have gotten a pardon, they should have received a medal.

According to Hot Air, their sentences will expire now on March 20, 2009.
