Border Patrol Agent Railroaded Into A Jail Sentence

    Another miscarriage of justice on a border patrol agent.

    A U.S. Border Patrol agent has been sentenced to two years in prison for improperly lifting the arms of a 15-year-old drug smuggling suspect while handcuffed — in what the Justice Department called a deprivation of the teenager’s constitutional right to be free from the use of unreasonable force.

    Agent Jesus E. Diaz Jr. was named in a November 2009 federal grand jury indictment with deprivation of rights under color of law during an October 2008 arrest near the Rio Grande in Eagle Pass, Texas, in response to a report that illegal immigrants had crossed the river with bundles of drugs.

    In a prosecution sought by the Mexican government and obtained after the suspected smuggler was given immunity to testify against the agent, Diaz was sentenced last week by U.S. District Judge Alia Moses Ludlum in San Antonio. The Mexican consulate in Eagle Pass had filed a formal written complaint just hours after the arrest, alleging that the teenager had been beaten.

    Defense attorneys argued that there were no injuries or bruises on the suspected smuggler’s lower arms where the handcuffs had been placed nor any bruising resulting from an alleged knee on his back. Photos showed the only marks on his body came from the straps of the pack he carried containing the suspected drugs, they said.

    Border Patrol agents found more than 150 pounds of marijuana at the arrest site.

    Given the current administrations pro illegal agenda I can't imagine anyone wanting to risk prison working for the border patrol.
  3. Thanks to Barry & the Democrats and our 9.1% unemployment rate, the American worker is really powerless at saying those words, "Take this job and shove it". Plus I hear public sector workers are well paid. [​IMG]
  4. You got that right.

    Seems like any profession where you work with people you are putting yourself at risk for a felony of one sort or another.

    "Nice tits" see ya in jail,

    "wrong pill" oops see you prison,

    Fuck up a value meal, beat your customer with rebar, oops go to jail.

    Nobody can take a joke.

    :D :D
  5. Correction: That's McRebar
  6. Border Patrol agent must be the worst job in government. Risk your life daily for civil service salary, if you defend yourself or try to do your fucking job, you get prosecuted by republicans and dems. Oh yeah, and you get shot at and killed by guns your own government ushered to drug cartels.
