    How is shooting an unarmed man in the back "Doing their job"? I doubt that is part of the job description or training.

    Great news. They should have been pardoned, but at least they are now free.


    Too bad they didn't kill that savage.

    How am I defending him? Requiring border agents/police/law enforcement to live by the laws of this country the same as everyone else does not mean you are "defending scum"....try to be a little less melodramatic.

    they've already served two years for shooting a drug dealer in the butt and will have to deal with having criminal records for the rest of their lives. no one is saying that border agents are completely above the law, and the fact that bush commuted their sentences rather than pardoning them only goes to reinforce this.

    They didn't know he was unarmed. He had attempted to smuggle more than 700 pounds of marijuana into the US and took off when they tried to arrest him. As border patrol agents, they know the danger of drug trafficers and defended themselves. They did not shoot to kill, so I don't know what the problem was. Defending themselves and the border is part of their job description, they are border patrol agents.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    They weren't "defending themselves"....that was their claim that was debunked. They tried to alter evidence to cover up their illegal actions.

    No....I would like to see law enforcement officers do their job in the way that our laws require. I believe that the laws of this country should apply to all equally. People shouldn't receive differential treatment when they break the law because of their status.

    they did not break the law, they were railroaded. They believed the testimony of an illegal alien over the Law enforcement officers.
