Breaking: President Bush Commutes Sentences Of Imprisoned Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean

January 19, 2009

Fox News reported moments ago, President Bush has commuted the sentences of Border Patrol agents Ignacio “Nacho” Ramos and Jose Compean.

On his last full day in office, President Bush commuted the sentences of two former Border Patrol agents convicted of shooting a Mexican drug runner in 2005.

The imprisonment of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean had sparked outcry from critics who said the two were just doing their jobs. They had been sentenced to 11- and 12-year sentences, respectively.

Their prison sentences will now expire on March 20 of this year.

I had a a sneaking suspicion Bush would finally take care of this issue on his last day in office.
Maybe it was just wishful thinking.
What matters is that he did.
And…
It is about freaking time!

Though not enough IMHO he should of given the two a full pardon.

    But, he didn’t *pardon* them.

    He commuted their sentences, basically saying, “they’ve served enough time.”

    The “crime” and conviction will still show on their records.

    My mistake. Thanks I will edit accordingly. In my excitement I overlooked that most important distinction.
