LOS LUNAS, N.M. A Marine from Belen arrested for shooting and killing a burglar on the Fourth of July three years ago is now going after the lawmen who put him behind bars.

Start with the prosecutor.
Expect jury tampering unless the case is moved far, far away from this clique’s fiefdom. There is no justice in some of these backwater places.
I tend to believe the Marine ... The Marine’s “Duty, Honor, country” motto carries weight.
There is no justice a lot of places my friend, and I'm not certain that backwaters are any worse. I would direct you to the Supreme Court of the United States.
Sorry. “Duty, Honor, Country” comes from the U.S. Military Academy. The Corps’ motto is “Semper Fidelis”.
I see George Zimmerman doing the same. But he has a lot more people to sue.
Do we know if he’s set up a fund for help pay for
his lawyers? I’d like to help him. Couldn’t find
any info on line.
The US Supreme Court is in fact every bit as corrupt as the US Congress or those in the White House.
I think that all members of the Armed Forces can,and should,adhere to the "Duty,Honor,Country" motto.And the Marines can,in addition,proclaim "Semper Fidelis".
Clarence Thomas gets my vote as the least corrupt in the current Supreme Court.
New Mexico is “for the gubment cheese, by the the gubment cheese, of the gubment cheese.”
Since virtually every public dollar spent there is federal money in some iteration. The cheese strings for every issue insure a federal gubment approved response to your every situation.
Although State Sovereignty is now moot, New Mexico is more like a District of Columbia than a State.
But what the he’ll, all fifty States should be renamed as Federal District #1-50.
Thanks Mom and Dad for your respect for Federal Institutions. This is what post war conservatism gave us.
Taxpayers get to pay twice. Once for their(LEOs) salary/pensions and again for their lawyer fees when they do dumb/illegal crap.
There needs to be a new way devised to actually have the department pay for these things and not always the taxpayers.
“For what it’s worth, we’re all corrupt.”
Speak for yourself.
He won’t win, the odds are stacked against him.
But God Bless him for trying.
It is incredible... what should be thought as a shot heard round the world against crime, this Marines’ self defense, that is, he is put in jail instead.
Who is our government working for?
We can’t have citizens protecting themselves on their own property.
Punish the serf for daring to think he has liberty!
Seriously, what is with all of the cop vs. ex/current military serviceman/woman articles in the last few years? I’m beginning to wonder if they aren’t *deliberately* targeting the military in some areas.
Absolutely agree with the general statement. My comment was only about “D, H, C” not being the USMC motto.
Well I am not as corrupt as Roberts, and Jefferson did say, “A people gets the leaders they deserve”, and that’s the rub, we deserve this crap.
I remember this story too. I hope he wipes the floor with all involved.
