This whole ordeal for Compean and Ramos was a giant witch hunt for a prosecuter wanting to make a name for himself. I'am not condoning Jose and Ignacio trying to cover up shooting that turd. But I do not have a problem with them shooting a drug smuggler in the ass. Our border patrol put's up with alot more s##t than they should have to. Those scumbag accross the border throw rock's at them, cut hole's in the fence where there is one, dig tunnel's under the border, and take pot shot's at them when there just patrolling. If our agent's could shoot all the illegal's in the ass when thier comming accross the border they would think twice before breaking our law's and assaulting our agent's.

any cop can understand what these two did and why. The Patrol should share in the responsibility for what happened. This could happen to any cop trying to do his job and make a difference. A sorry cop would be to lazy to have done anything. Funny how the people we try so hard to protect are the first to order the rope brought forth. take care and be safe my brothers, Walt

Let's call the guy they shot by the right name, "Criminal invader" They should have been given a medal for shooting the guy. Too bad their shot placement wasn't a few inches higher.
