Chesty Puller would have invaded Mexico to get his Marine back.

In the late 60’ or early 70’s a Marine was locked up on trumped up charges in Tijuana, when the boys got back to the base, they assembled 300 strong and went into Tijuana Fully Armed in Military Vehicles, Tanks,,,and REMOVED him from their Jail and came right back home to Camp Pendleton. I guess they just don’t care anymore about their fellow Marines.

Only reason Mexico is doing this is because they know Obama will lay face down butt up for them and do nothing.

..this was after the Mexican military OK the rifle as "not on their list" to confiscate. The prison where this Marine is being held is under a cartel's jurisdiction

Let some Mexican come to our country and rape and kill a bunch of little girls and then gets the death penalty. Watch Mexico and all the “do-gooders” protest!

The saddest/most infuriating part about all of this is that if the young man is actually convicted of a gun crime in Mexico, he will lose all rights here to keep or bear arms.

BTW, all of those saying that this wouldn’t have occurred under another administration are correct - even under Carter they’d have just confiscated the gun and sent him back. Seems to me that a few Marines should go across the border and grab a few of their border guards, all of whom will be released as soon as our guy is released without any harm and without any criminal record. Either that, or just shoot a bunch and send out an anonymous You Tube video saying that this is just the start unless our guy is released.
