Border Patrol Agents Indicted for Chasing DrugRunners

Only in the USofA, where our Commander-in-Chief is scizophrenic on the issue:

Last February Ignacio Ramos responded to a request for backup from fellow Border Patrol agent Jose Alonso Compean, who had noticed a suspicious van near the Rio Grande River in the El Paso area. The van turned out to be carrying 800 pounds of marijuana. The two of them and another agent chased Osbaldo Aldrete-Davila, an illegal alien and drug smuggler who headed back for Mexico on foot.

Shots were fired. Ramos saw Compean on the ground bleeding and kept chasing the criminal, who turned toward him and apparently pointed a gun. Ramos shot at him and seemed to miss. Aldrete-Davila got into another van that was waiting for him on the other side of the river and escaped.

SO: What's the Disposition, Chief??

Aldrete-Davila was given full immunity and free medical treatment. Ramos and Compean were arrested for violating his civil rights.
