Obummer, you didn`t build this
We could have offered to release a couple of million Mexican illegals from peonage in the USA ~ and offered to send them back home to their loved ones right now ~ and Jon would have been outta’ there DAY 1.
back in US now.....
Wait. What? I wonder how that works?
Indeed, some good news.
Thank you Fox News, and the senators and congresswoman from Florida that worked to release him.
I agree, good news for sure. But, I am curious as to why the dude was taking an old bolt action 410 to Costa Rica so to hunt. What was he going to hunt, big butterflies? Like I said, just curious. Seems kinda dumb to me.
In about 1973 I was with a group of buddies, girls and guys at Rosarito beach partying late at nite and got robbed/fined by Federales, they shot our friend Herb(in army at the time) in the gut and we rushed him across the border rammed through the stick and got pulled over by the CHP told him the story and he led us to the hospital red lights and siren escort . Herb is a quad now.
Havent been back to Baja since
I can not blame Mexico for this entire series of events. That they selectively enforce their laws isn’t shocking - we do it every day, though typically we look the other way when a visitor or illegal is committing a crime. That their justice system is corrupt and as slow as possible, yep. That most of this would have gone away with the proper bribes - yep.
But whom I do blame is the US Customs officer who inspected, photographed and documented this firearm. There is no way I’d EVER believe that they had no knowledge of the firearms laws in Mexico and the tragedy that was about to unfold. The US citizen should have been told to turn the RV around, head into town, find a local gun shop to either hold onto the firearm until they return, or arrange shipment back home.
Letting them continue on their border crossing was absolutely going to end badly, with at least one US citizen in prison.
And yes, they were idiots for not researching this themselves, and probably even dumber for openly declaring a firearm anyway. But there was one moment when that firearm was out in the open, being inspected, in front of someone familiar with the laws of Mexico, who certainly had the authority to stop this tragedy before it happened, and that was the US Customs inspector who documented the firearm.
I certainly hope that the family has already filed a lawsuit against customs and am sorry that I’ll likely end up paying the judgment as a taxpayer.
In my opinion, O’Reilly deserves a lot of credit for this.
Just got home from work. I’ve been hoping to hear exactly this news!
Thank you, Jesus, our prayers have been answered!
You’ve probably heard this awesome news already, but wanted to ping you in case you hadn’t! Prayers have been answered!
Bill O’Reilly made a big issue of this, including a special segment a few days ago on “The Five” - more effective than Hillary and Obama put together - the power of the right kind of the press.....
