Drug Smuggler Gets Less Prison Time Than Border Agents

(CNSNews.com) – The Mexican drug smuggler who testified against the two Border Patrol agents who shot him near the Mexican border was sentenced Wednesday to nine and a half years in federal prison. That’s a shorter sentence than either of the agents received.
 
Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila received two consecutive 57-month sentences for smuggling almost 800 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. in September and October of 2005. During that time, he had immunity from prosecution for an earlier smuggling episode — the one where he was shot by Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean.
 
In February 2005, Compean shot 14 times at the fleeing illegal alien drug smuggler, but he missed.  Ramos shot once and hit Aldrete-Davila in the buttocks before the wounded smuggler made it back across the Mexican border.  More from CNSNews

More insanity.  Ramos and Compean should have never, ever gone to prison.  Davila should have been there long ago, not receiving free medical care at TAXPAYER expense and enjoying his freedom to smuggle drugs into this country.  We must continue the pressure on Washington to free Agents Ramos and Compean, in addition to investigations into the office of Johnny Sutton, the sorry excuse for an attorney who put them there.
