To give the voters a little background in the Ramos and Compean case two border patrol agents were tried for shooting a drug smuggling illegal alien as he crossed the border. They were sentenced to 11 and 10 years in prison.
According to Ramos and Compean's testimony they saw the drug smuggler (as he was running from them)pull out a "shiny metal object". Thinking that the drug smuggler was pulling a gun on them they shot him in the rear. This understandably interrupted his drug smuggling and he re crossed the border back into mexico.
Later they were tried by a friend of the drug smuggler who was told by his mother that the drug smuggler had been shot. Now I don't know about you but if a criminal pointed what I thought was a gun at me I would shoot him to save my own skin. Now Ramos and Compean sit behind bars while this drug runner is free.

As we all know Drug smugglers are criminals too. All criminals should be put in prison. So the drug smugglers should be in prison too. But if you think about it shooting people is worse than than doing drugs bcause drugs are a personal choice. Drug smugglers can be very mean people, at least they are on TV. Cops are really mean too. I've had experience with that!

Overall i'd say that drugsmugglers should be put in prison too. but they are in mexico so they can't be catch by the us.

What are "douches" in Italy, Mioveny? In most of Europe douches are showers! Was the penalty to get naked and have a wash while the police watched? :)

"Cops are really mean too. I've had experience with that!"

Really, mioveny? I'm intrigued! What was it? Drunk and disorderly conduct? Breach of the peace? Taking a vehicle without consent? Come on, spill the beans!

I think the judgement in court, the resolution says "[...] case".

Just to clarify are you against the shooting or the judgment?
