A member of the civilian border patrol group Ranch Rescue was arrested in Douglas yesterday on charges stemming from an illegal-imprisonment case in Texas, an FBI spokeswoman said.

Now it seems that justice is being served. Those of us who left Ranch Rescue knew of the allegations leveled at Jack Foote, head of RR, and his refusal to answer the questions posed to him concerning them.
We at American Border Alliance take no satisfaction in this news but feel that it is time that the record be set straight. We are convinced that the allegations of a vicious assault are true. We are convinced that Jack Foote and Casey Nethercott are guilty of that assault.
We were told that Mr. Foote had held a bound man to the ground and that Mr. Nethercott had kicked that man until and even after he had lost consciousness. We have seen the depositions of eyewitnesses and are convinced of the truth of the charges. We are, however, appalled at the length of time it has taken to bring the truth to light. Those witnesses should have spoken up immediately!
Be that as it may, we are glad to see that justice will now be meted out to the two "men" who committed such a foul crime against another. Such an act is nothing more nor less than cowardice. I, as National Director of ABA, have stated to our members that should one of them act in such a manner, that person would answer to me first and the law could have what, if anything, were left.
To those who succumbed to the wiles of Mr. Foote (and Turner, his lackey in AZ) I can only say too bad you didn't wish to hear the truth. It would have saved you much embarrassment.
