HELP Free an American Marine From Prison in Mexico


BTW....I should add.....

There is actually quite a bit of cooperation between the US and Mexico. I a Felon escapes across the border....we usually don't have any issues getting them to grab the guy and hand him back. The only constraint is we can't give them the death Penalty.

So...if Mexico is keeping this guy in jail....sounds like that have some pretty good charges against him. Mexico is trying real hard to control the flow of weapons into their country. I wouldn't be surprised if that Marine had more than what the new article is saying. If he was hauling some of the usual Marine equipment....he might have been looking to make some big bucks....but instead......

Tough to say what he had in the car at this point. If Mexico wants to control the flow of guns, they should look at their own military.

Understood but their domestic military is in cahoots to help smuggle the arms as well by what I have read.

I just saw this on the news. How exciting for him and his family!

Shame on our 'leader' for not getting him out sooner.

Can't call someone a leader if they don't lead.

This entire episode is obscene, inexcusable, and unforgivable.

Welcome home soldier and THANK YOU.

Amen.

Welcome back home.

What really great is that we keep supporting a corrupt regime....

Now...how many of you think I meant our government and how many think I meant Mexico?

While I'm glad he is home, there is more to this story than what is being told.

You don't drive up to a border crossing by 'mistake' with a truck full of guns. There is a turn around before the checkpoint so he had an opportunity to avoid it.

And, I don't buy all those text messages his mom says she got. Most people who get arrested have all their property removed....including cell phones.

I'm sure we will learn more on the coming days.

Regarding our 'leader'? I'm takin the 5th on that one.
