Before you read on, sit down,  cover your head and eyes with duct tape, because blood will shoot out of your eyeballs, as Glenn Beck used to say.  A veteran US Border Patrol Agent has been sentenced to jail for mistreatment of a drug smuggler who claims he was mistreated while in custody.

Agent Jesus Diaz Jr. was charged with improperly lifting the arms of a 15 year old suspect while handcuffed.  The prosecution was sought by the Mexican government, and the “mule” (drug slang for young, underage porters who tote drugs across the border) was given immunity in exchange for his testiomony. Homeland Security and the US Customs Office originally cleared Diaz of any wrongdoing, but then the dreaded Internal Affairs division of Customs re-investigated and ruled against Diaz.   He was given two years in prison.   The  US Attorney’s Office For The Western District of Texas is the same office who notoriously prosecuted Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Campean in the famous 2006 incident when a drug smuggler who was trying to run back across the border was shot in the buttocks-after he had abandoned a van loaded with 800 lbs of marijuana.  The initial investigation showed the only marks on the 15 year old’s body were those from the backpack he was using to carry the drugs.   Compare the alledged “mistreatment marks” with the hundreds of mutilated and headless bodies found all over Mexico courtesy of the drug cartels enforcing their version of brutal justice…
