Thanks, GOP

Border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean will not be getting any special consideration from the Bush administration.

President Bush's spokesman yesterday said the case of two U.S. Border Patrol agents who are seeking a pardon for having shot a fleeing suspected drug dealer has been mischaracterized and the agents violated regulations.

White House press secretary Tony Snow said there has been "a characterization that somehow the government is turning a blind eye toward the law in enforcing the law," but said the facts of the case show the two agents broke the law.

And Tony Snow, officially, jumps the shark.

The agents shot an illegal alien drug carrier in the butt when he fled in the process of trying to transport over 700 pounds of marijuana across the U.S. - Mexico border. The criminal was granted immunity by a U.S. court, and testified against the agents, who were determined to have infinged upon the criminal's rights.

The border patrol agents will be screwed for life, and the Republican party should consequently close up shop.

More later.

At times I really try to understand what the Bush administration is trying to accomplish regarding the immigration issue but this story has literally made me angry over the past several months.
I don't think any Republican agrees with Bush on this issue.
Its almost as if Snow and company live in a glass bubble and have absolutely no clue about anything. Its obvious Tancredo and company are doing a great job with this issue but because Snow is obviously feeling the heat. We need to keep it up, especially with this case.

Oh. Are we feeling like the Bush admin. is incompetent? Join the club. Can we get a quick show-of-hands: who here voted for Bush TWICE?

These two agents may be getting too much punishment, but they did break the law. And we do tend to treat law enforcement more seriously when they break the law.

The falsified evidence, shot an unarmed man in the back when he tried to run away after one cop tried to beat him up, tried to cover it up.

You can't do that no matter how "bad" the person is.

10th - You're right, we can't give up ...

Charles - The details of the case are pretty upsetting. If I get a chance I will rehash it. There is another aspect, regarding the community of support that rose up for the "victim."

Stay Puft - Yeah, you got me. I am trying to make up for it.
