I haven't done a WTF moment post in quite some time but I felt that it was necessary today. In fact I have a few of them....
While perusing the internet looking up some information today I came across a CNN news headline that featured a story about a 29-year old sex offender who posed as a 12-year old student for several weeks in a school in Surprise, Arizona. But this wasn't his first time. It's rumored that he did this in other schools too.
How can a 29-year old man pass for a 12-year old? Didn't anyone notice his makeup? Holy cow!
I'm still floored over the case of the two Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean who were convicted of shooting Mexican drugrunner Osvaldo Aldrete Davila in the ass in February 2005.
Yes Ramos and Compean were stupid for attempting to cover it up. But HELLO--our own government USED this drugrunner who had 743 pounds of marijuana in his possession and who was in OUR country ILLEGALLY for the purpose of selling this stuff, was given IMMUNITY so that our government could prosecute our own law enforcement.
What's wrong with this picture?
The work of border patrol agents is long, arduous and goes very unappreciated. This doesn't excuse their behavior but when we allow criminals to go free in order to prosecute our own? It just doesn't sit well with me. If they wanted to prosecute Ramos and Compean FINE, however,they should not have gone so far as to let this illegal alien drugrunner go free.
But then again that's just one American's opinion...
