This Ought To Piss You Off

Who wants to be pissed off?

2 Border Patrol Agents to Turn Themselves in Today for Shooting Mexican Drug RunnerTwo Texas Border Patrol agents — convicted of shooting a Mexican drug runner in the backside while on duty — were scheduled to turn themselves in to U.S. Marshals Wednesday, and there's still no word on whether President Bush will grant them a pardon.

Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean are scheduled to begin serving 11 and 12 years, respectively, on Wednesday for the February 2005 non-fatal shooting of Osvaldo Aldrete Davila.

Several groups, including Friends of the Border Patrol, The Minutemen and, have been trying through petitions to keep the agents out of prison — through either a motion to U.S. District Judge Kathleen Cardone to allow them to remain free on bond during an appeal or through a presidential pardon from Bush.

But Cardone on Tuesday denied a motion for the two ex-agents to remain free on bond until their appeals.

They're getting over a Decade in jail for shooting a drug runner in the ass - without killing him!?!
