Yesterday’s 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Decision to uphold the Ramos and Compean convictions is just not right. Law Enforcement should not be punished for trying to do an honest job. They put their lives at risk and are required to make important split-second decisions on a daily basis. It’s a lot of responsibility without proportionate support. And since we’re only human here, we might not always do what’s best – But does it really make sense to send these two to prison for (10) years? The answer is definitely NO.
What’s the real story here? Who is being protected? It’s certainly not American citizens. We need to allow Law Enforcement to protect all those living here and simply enforce the laws. It appears that enforcing laws has become an arbitrary or politically motivated practice. They’re selectively being applied when there’s something to be gained by a certain party or lobbying group, not for the benefit of the American population as a whole.
Why are we seeing so many gray areas in Law Enforcement? The law is the law. Either something is illegal, or it’s not. We need to allow those who choose a Law Enforcement career to do their job, without the fear of unfair prosecution or political scrutiny – Otherwise, who is going to want the position? I certainly wouldn’t.
The decision to prosecute Ramos and Compean, the withholding of important information during trial, and the upholding of these bad decisions effect all our safety, but most specifically here – The Ramos and Compean families who are unjustly hurting tremendously. Why are we protecting the Mexican drug cartel? Come on now. We need to speak out or we’re just going to lose more – I’m happy that KFI cares.
