Mr. Huckabee, left, and Carlos Quijas, right, say Mexican soldiers planted two suitcases of marijuana in their truck, then abused them during interrogation, allegations denied by the army.
Any civilized person who voluntarily sets foot anywhere in Mexico deserves everything he/she gets....for sheer stupidity.
Shit, guys in jail who claim that they were framed...get Ripley’s Believe it or Not on the phone...has this ever happened before? They must be innocent! Probably went for a tuck and roll in their truck...
If they actually did go down there to buy 2 suitcases full of weed and bring them back, would their story be any different?
I wonder if they have learned the definition of “profiling”...
Can’t tell who is telling the truth. Regardless, it is INSANE to enter Mexico these days!
I am sorry, but I simply don’t believe this. The cartels are setting off car bombs in Cd. Juarez, there are shootouts in public places, people are getting killed on the streets daily, public officials are assassinated, there is chaos and mayhem, and the Mexican Army takes time out of its busy schedule to go after and set up two guys from the US who are obviously not big time cartel members? I don’t think so. I think they did a very dumb thing, and now it is going to cost their families some bucks to get them out of there. Unless the Mexicans decide to make an example of them, which I really doubt they will do because they have bigger, nastier fish to fry.
Mexico is so corrupt it is possible the drugs were planted as a means to get whatever they had- vehicle, etc.
If they were smuggling drugs they are incredibly lucky to have landed in jail instead of dead as most Americans that try to compete with the cartels end up.
Either way they are burned up with stupid for being there to begin with.
Any drug smuggler will accuse law enforcement of planting evidence.

Why doesn’t he just get his dad to pardon him...as he did with that guy who KILLED 4 COPS in cold blood, near Seattle?
