President Bush commuted the sentences of hosed US Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean today:
Bush’s decision to commute the sentences of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, who tried to cover up the shooting, was welcomed by both Republican and Democratic members of Congress. They had long argued that the agents were merely doing their jobs, defending the American border against criminals. They also maintained that the more than 10-year prison sentences the pair was given were too harsh.
With this act he does a good thing but waiting this long, keeping these men in prison for years, was cowardly and still makes him a huge weenie in my book.
So “good idea” Bush, but you are way late to the party.
