Ramos & Compean - Imprisoned border guards speak out
The Washington Times has the exclusive here.
Former U.S. Border Patrol agent Ignacio "Nacho" Ramos wakes up in the middle of the night expecting a guard to shine a flashlight in his face. Jose Alonso Compean, his colleague, still has nightmares that he's not really home.
It has not been easy readjusting to life outside their one-man prison cells where they spent the last two years of their lives in segregation.
Since the commutation of their sentences by President Bush on his last day in office, the former agents, who were charged with the non-fatal shooting of a Mexican national after he abandoned a load of marijuana near the border, are learning to live in the world again.
Since being released from prison on Feb 17, both men were confined to house arrest for 31 days and were barred from speaking to the media until their sentences ended Friday.
In an exclusive interview with The Washington Times........
I hope these men can go on with their lives and enjoy their families. I got mad at Bush over many things and his slow action on this was one of them.
