I never thought I would see the day in our country where criminals are given special treatment over citizens. Something bad wrong with this picture.

Angry Bush

This is just plain wrong.




Update:

BUSH PARDONS FIVE DRUG DEALERS, IGNORES WRONGLY CONVICTED BORDER PATROL AGENTS

George Bush - friend of criminals; enemy of American citizens

At the same time Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean were seeking a presidential pardon for their convictions in the wounding of a Mexican drug smuggler in Texas last year, President Bush pardoned 16 criminals this week, including five drug dealers, one of whom was convicted of cocaine distribution and conspiracy. Meanwhile, Ramos and Compean are about to serve 11 and 12 years in prison for the administrative offense of failing to report the shooting, protecting one of the most dangerous sections of the U.S.-Mexico border. They did not even know they hit the fleeing suspect who ran back across the border into Mexico. His drug haul was seized by U.S. and Mexican authorities, so his guilt was never in doubt. During his first six years in office, President Bush has pardoned 113 criminals, from moon shiners to tax cheats, and commuted the sentences of three others. The case of Ramos and Compean deserves special attention. Over 150,000 U.S. citizens and 55 members of Congress have signed petitions requesting a presidential pardon. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher noted: "What the president is doing is putting in jeopardy the good relationship he's had with people like me, who supported his policies. Now we have a doubt as to what his motives are; pardoning drug dealers and other criminals, but ignoring the pleas for a pardon for two of the people who have been protecting us at the border.

Default Free Prince Georges Co. Maryland Police Officer Stephanie Mohr Now!

Another Public Defender Arrested

Quote:
Meet Stephanie Mohr, dangerous and hardened criminal, now serving a ten year prison sentence at the Federal Prison Camp in Alderson, West Virginia, thanks to tenacious federal prosecutors and tough judge.
Stephanie’s crime? Her dog bit a man in the leg.
This was not just any dog. Valk, a German Shepherd, worked for the Prince George’s County Police Department, Maryland. Police Officer Stephanie Mohr was his K-9 partner.
The victim? Ricardo Mendez, an illegal alien from El Salvador, complete with criminal record, was found with an accomplice by police at 1 a.m. atop the roof of a commercial building in the suburb of Takoma Park, Maryland.
Prosecutors were able to convince a jury, that the dog bite wasn’t necessary, thus violating Ricardo’s civil rights. And for that, Stephanie Mohr, age 35, decorated cop, loyal daughter, devoted mother...is spending ten years in the prime of her life in a prison cell, branded a criminal for life.
Everyone reading this must be shaking their heads. Here, in the land of the free, where we cherish a constitution painstakingly designed to protect Americans from injustice, the justice system creates its own injustice.
There’s more to this incredible story.
* Stephanie Mohr wasn’t charged with a crime until five years later, one day before the statute of limitations expired.
* Neither of the two illegals, including the man that was bitten, ever filed a complaint.
* The case took two trials. In the first, eleven jurors voted for acquittal, with one hold-out. But the government went after her again, this time gaining a conviction.
* The main prosecution witness faced criminal charges and testified in exchange for a deal
It happened on September 21, 1995. Stephanie had been a cop for two years. Her short career — serving and protecting the citizens of Prince George’s County, Maryland, — had already been dotted with deeds resulting in 25 letters of commendation and two awards. In one act of heroism, a group of juvenile drug dealers ambushed Stephanie and fired 40 shots in an assassination attempt. She survived, unharmed. (The shooters were charged with attempted murder on a police officer, and received eight years in jail. They were out in 18 months)
Inexperienced as a K-9 handler, Stephanie was riding with a senior officer, Anthony Delozier, when they received a back-up call to the Takoma Park Police Department. Takoma Park cops were on a stake-out after a rash of roof top burglaries in the area. It paid off. Two suspects were found atop a commercial building. K-9 was called to assist, along with the helicopter unit.
Prosecutors would later say these were just two homeless men looking for a place to eat and sleep. Well, of course. Illegal aliens often enjoy dining and sleeping on commercial rooftops. The pattern of rooftop burglaries in the area and their extensive records as criminals was apparently irrelevant.
When they arrived on the scene, with the police helicopter hovering, Officer Delozier conferred with the Takoma Park Sergeant, Dennis Bonn, in the staging area to determine the nature of the call. In cop lingo, he asked, “Is it a bite case?” Translated, he was asking if this was a felony which, if necessary, would justify an apprehension by dog — instead of gun. The two suspects came down the building on the back side, next to an alley. Stephanie, Delozier, Bonn and one other cop waited with guns drawn. They ordered the suspects to freeze, hands up. One suspect appeared jittery, barely raised his hands to waist level while jabbering in Spanish to his cohort. According to Stephanie, Delozier, and the other officer, Mendez made a move like he might break for it. Stephanie released the dog who then bit the man on the leg.
Both suspects were sent to jail, and were later deported from the U.S. Case closed?
In the ensuing five years, and for a decade prior, a number of questionable incidents occurred within the Prince George’s County and Takoma Park police departments alleging rampant abuse by police officers toward minorities. Law suits had been filed against several cops, including those in K-9. Media ran several stories. One of the cops under scrutiny for brutality and facing a number of civil rights charges, was Sergeant Dennis Bonn, the same Takoma Park supervisor who was on the scene of the 1995 apprehension by Stephanie’s dog.
The prosecutors also managed to get support from Takoma Park cop, Keith Largent who opined that the dog bite was not really necessary. Sergeant Bonn contradicted Delozier’s testimony saying the question was asked, “Can the dog have a bite?” long after the suspects came off the building and were in custody.
Armed with Bonn’s testimony, federal prosecutors charged Stephanie Mohr and Anthony Delozier with conspiracy and violating the civil rights of the illegal alien under color of law.
Imagine that, a foreigner with a criminal record breaks the law to enter this country, and he’s automatically awarded civil rights. And it’s the cop who goes to jail.
Also charged, was Takoma Park Officer, Brian Rich, who the government said filed false charges against the men. After a hung jury, the judge dismissed all charges. Rich later became an FBI agent.
Mohr and Delozier were nearly acquitted in the first trial, but for one hold-out on the jury. Normally, a prosecution office will not go through the expense and time to retry a case under such circumstances. Nor would they defy the spirit of double jeopardy protections. But, this “crime” was so detestable, determined prosecutors went after the two of them again, this time with a new approach. After trial number one, they had the advantage of knowing the defense strategy. Weak government witnesses were not called for trial number two, including the lead FBI agent in charge, Marc Savine. For trial number two, prosecutors unearthed a couple of new witnesses — unrelated to the Mendez bite — who would testify that Stephanie Mohr was prejudiced toward minorities, as evidenced by other incidents, post 1995, when her dog apprehended and/or bit minority suspects. They excavated the original illegal alien from a jail cell in El Salvador to come and testify against her. The other illegal alien was brought back from a prison in Texas.
Delozier was acquitted of conspiracy in the second trial. He’s back on the police beat, now a lieutenant. One can only imagine his attitude toward the law.
In August of 2002, Officer Stephanie Mohr was hauled away in handcuffs, her life a shambles. The judge sentenced her to ten years. The government reveled in victory, claiming justice had prevailed. Or did it?
The loser was not just Stephanie Mohr. In a time when our society laments over too many one-parent homes, her son, Adam, age 4, will have to spend his formative years growing up without a mom in the home.
A decorated career cop who would have gone on to a stellar career protecting local citizens from criminal predators, has been excoriated and damaged for life.
Instead of her paying taxes and contributing to our society, she is now relegated to a social dependent, supported by you and me.
Im guessing the dog recieved 20 years in jail for being the one that inflicted the bite.

Default Another Border Agent

Agent kills suspected drug smuggler March 1st, 2007

A suspected drug smuggler was shot to death during a confrontation with Border Patrol agents Tuesday night south of Tucson, officials said.
The shooting occurred about 8 p.m. about 20 miles west of Interstate 19 near the Aliso Springs area south of Tubac. Agents from the Tucson Sector encountered four men backpacking in the desert, said Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada.
The agents surrounded the men in an attempt to detain them. At least one agent fired, killing one of the men, he said.
The other three ran away, but two were detained nearby about an hour later, Estrada said.
The dead man had a rifle, and one of the arrestees had a handgun, he said. Border Patrol agents also seized four bundles of marijuana.
Agents have been working in the area trying to prevent violence, Estrada said.
It is not clear if the suspects exchanged gunfire with the agents, but no agents were injured, said Jesus Rodriguez, spokesman for the Border Patrol’s Tucson Sector.
"The agent must have felt threatened for his life because he took that action," Rodriguez said.
I hope the agent involved isn't prosecuted.






I wonder what's in store for this agent, I bet ol' Johnny Sutton is already licking his lips like a dog that just finished off a pork chop.

...it's all good c'dog, some of my best friends went to Public school.
Interesting. I've been in law enforcement for 30 years. Last time I read the fourth ammendment it addressed unreasonable search and seizure issues. By the way there are situations where an unarmed man can be shot. I suggest you brush up a little on law 101. I won't do all your homework for you but I'll get you started. A prisoner in custody can be shot if attempting escape. There are many more instances as well.

If she would have waited, let the suspect run a hundred feet, order him to stop or she would release her dog she might have fared better. It's sad but not uncommon in law enforcement to be sacrificed by a "ambitious" prosecutor. I've seen many a cop fried by prosecutors when they do their Monday morning quaterback routine. This is a prime reason why cops get sour. They do a job and make life or death calls in a split second when the rest of the legal system can dissect that decision for days after. Too many good cops have lost their jobs (and may be doing time) due to inept prosecutors and juries.

Angry Another Texas cop Convicted

How in the hell do things like this happen? Illegals trying to run over a cop and the cop gets convicted of violating their civil rights.

We need to deport all illegal aliens. That is the only peaceful solution. If our government can't deport illegals, then why enforce ANY laws?

Perhaps we have become a nation which only enforces laws against our citizens.

The illegals come here and expect the same laws they break to protect them. Our President Bush should protect our borders from people who sneak into our country.

This is a sad day for America.

What about the ILLEGAL ALIENS who BREAK THE LAW?

30 years of law enforcement (vs Attorney info)...

Actually, reading ability is all that's required, did your career require higher education?

and yes, there are exceptions...keep your suggestions to yourself - your badge does not = intelligence. Are we in agreement?
