US vs. Ramos & Compean Case
LEOAC is the best source of information about the case of the U.S. Government vs USBP Agents Ramos & Compean. This case violates several sacred tenets of the Constitution in that the non-existant rights (US vs Verdugo-Urquidez - 1990) of doper, Osvaldo Alderete Davila were more important than enforcement the crimes committed by the doper. It is provided for historical and educational purposes so you can learn how America's Departments of Justice & Homeland Security Operate, as well as our Judicial Branch. We investigated this case independently, and stand by our statements made on this case, which raise many questions that Congress and the media have failed to ask all involved. In order to reach the conclusions we have, you have to look at it from every point of view, prosecutor, defense, and independent observer.
Ramos/Compean Case Status
*Last Updated on April 20, 2009: Again, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean sentences were commuted by President George W. Bush. However, they will still be under supervised release with provisions for three years. As for their continued case appeals, their appellate counsels filed writs of certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court, which were denied. Their previous appeals were denied by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Their appellate counsels filed requests for rehearing by the court and en banc, which means a request with all judges of the 5th Circuit Court, which were also denied. Given the level of corruption in our current government and the fact, as we have experienced firsthand on numerous cases, the courts are ignoring the rule of law concerning facts, fair and speedy trials, evidence, abuse on the part of U.S. Attorney Offices and DOJ, as well as going so far as to ignore US Supreme Court Rulings and thus precedence. Though we have complete faith and support in the appellate counsels, faith in the court is an entirely different matter based on rulings by courts of all levels of the U.S. Judicial Branch. As a result, we feel it unlikely to see a ruling from any court in Ramos/Compean's favor, including the U.S. Supreme Court. That is how rampant the corruption is. That is how the U.S. Congress has failed in its Constitutional mandated duty as part of checks and balances to hold the Executive and Judicial Branches accountable.
Answers due to questions we've received regarding Ramos/Compean case & Investigation
*Updated on January 19, 2009: FOBP supported a commutation of sentence for Ramos and Compean by the President, which is well known and established. President George W. Bush commuted their sentences on January 19, 2009, two years and two days after the two former agents surrendered to the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving their prison sentences. This would not have been possible without the support of people across America.
