A Marine Being Held Hostage… in Mexico?

Have you seen about this Marine being held in Mexico for declaring to Mexican customs that he had an antique rifle? He’s now being held in Mexico on made up charges and his parents are being extorted for bribes. And so far the State Department hasn’t been much help (he’s been in prison for four months). I only heard about this because my Mom had the O’Reilly Factor on at her house, but it seems like it should be national outrage.

Can’t we work out a deal with Mexico? We’ll send you one million Mexicans who are currently in America in exchange for that Marine. Or two million. Or if the problem is the Mexican government is too incompetent and corrupt to handle this quickly, we can helpful kill everyone in the government so they can get a new one.

How can a country be so much smaller and weaker than us and be evil little jerks? How does that make any sense? People should be much more scared of us than to do things like this.

  1. He was going hunting in Costa Rico were hunting is now banned, maybe they wanted to be the last to hunt there, before the ban went not affect? To carry a firearm into Mexican you have to get a temporary permit from the Mexican government. If this young man had a permit then why not say he had a permit issued by the government of Mexico?

    Does the story read Mexican government issued permit to man to carry gun into country then arrested him?

  2. The story said that the gun was declared on the US side of the border. That does not mean anything and antique or not, you should NEVER try and bring a gun into Mexico. I guess the whole story would be so much different if a Mexican tried to bring a gun into the US, huh?

  3. Every body we are currently on a mission to save the marine. We might have to brake him out so we will. Mexico is a piece of turt that can be whipped out in minutes. Therefore, F@#$ them and the SSA is working with the FBI to do this as as soon as possible. This news will not be tolarated outside this nation and all who read this must keep shut.

  4. Actually… the First Amendment? That whole freedom of speech and freedom of religion thing?

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

    Note the “Congress shall make no law…” part. This blog isn’t Congress. You don’t have the right to say whatever you want here. If the blog owners (or his authorized representatives) decide to remove it, for any reason whatsoever, tough titties.

    Note that a comment not being removed doesn’t imply agreement or consent. It’s sometimes an open invitation for other commenters to tear the offending commenter a new one. Which, I suppose, is where your Seventh Amendment reference was going: trial by peers.
