Two former U.S. Border Patrol agents surrendered yesterday to begin prison sentences for shooting a drug-smuggling suspect in the buttocks after he assaulted one of them, dumped nearly 800 pounds of marijuana along the Rio Grande and then fled into Mexico.Read the story and you will shake your head in amazement. A drug smuggler crosses our border to sell his shit in our country and is stopped by our guys. The stop results in a pursuit and shots are eventually fired and the bad guy makes good his escape back to Mexico...end of story? No... his mother (a third party) complains of her son being shot by Border Patrol. The IG does an investigation and the Attorney General locates the shithead smuggler and offers him immunity if he would be willing to come back and testify against our guys.
Do you remember "KIKI" Camerena?
The United States government pursued a lengthy investigation of Camarena's murder: due to the difficulty of extraditing Mexican citizens, the FBI went as far as to have one suspect, Humberto Alvarez-Machain, kidnapped by bounty hunters and taken into the United States. Despite vigorous protests from the Mexican government, Alvarez was tried in United States District Court in Los Angeles, but the trial resulted in an acquittal.The amazing thing is we had a DEA Agent tortured and murdered by Mexican drug dealers and the best we could do is kidnap some asshole that gets acquitted.
