The only thing Ramos and Compean should have been sentenced to is marksmanship training. If Senor Davila- Aldrete (or whatever his name is) had only stayed in Mexico, where he belonged, this entire situation could have been avoided.

So I assume you would use the same argument for civil rights activists that may have been jailed in the 1960s?
Good thinking...and don't forget John McCain...HE spent several YEARS in a North Vietnamese prison....so, "If he was an ex-con, how could he run for President of the US"?

Got to really dig DEEP in these arguments...

Your arguments comparing McCain, civil right leaders to these guys don't really hold any water. Apples and oranges....

It is a crime they were convicted on the testimony of the narco-trafficker whose testimony was bought and paid for in in cash and of all things; residence in the US!

Oh, I most definitely agree. In fact, I wish they would have killed the *******.

A pardon wopuld have meant that their conviction would have been put aside like it never happened. By being commuted, they still have a felony conviction.
