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. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a shorter sentence than either of the agents received.
I wrote last week about the jail sentences of the agents in question, Ramos and Compean. The smuggler is suing the U.S. government for $5 million.
Now that the drug smuggler in question has been jailed, what are the odds that a good portion of liberal activists, including the Hollywood left, will come out and demand the release of this “political prisoner”?
